I donated a PLEX for the Philippines relief effort. I was proud to be part of it and it was pretty amazing that USD190,890 was raised and donated. It was a good cause.
Also, I wanted a T-shirt. I am not sure why, I just wanted it. So each day after my donation and up to and after the Live Stream, I looked for some acknowledge from CCP that my donation had been received and that a T-shirt was incoming. I checked mail on my characters – nothing. I checked contracts – nothing. I was worried that somehow I had contracted my PLEX to a scam character so I reviewed the contract and the recipient yet again. It was correct. So where was my T-shirt?
I was beginning to think they were just coming out late, when I started to see posts from other players about getting them and selling them. I was seriously at the point of buying one off the market (and enduring the scorn of Gevlon). Frankly, I figured it was easier to buy one that to figure out how to petition CCP to find my missing one.
Anyway, I had just decided to do it when I finally noticed the carefully blended “Redeem Items” at the bottom of the new Rubicon Log-In screen. In case you missed it too, I added the BIG YELLOW ARROW to show where it is.
My noob moment has passed. I now know how to get my free gifts – just in time for Christmas!
