I got stack of "Carbon" in EVE once. It's useless item but I took it as joke.

I agree. I wasn't expecting gifts, so it's no big deal to me, but those two items will never be used by me. I toss fireworks out of my pack now when I roll a new toon, and I have no intention of playing GSF because I have zero interest in PvP. Seems they could do better with gifts that everyone would enjoy. The one that comes to mind is the original Guildwars that gave a random pet each year. Didn't affect gameplay in the least, but was something that everyone could enjoy. Because they were random, there was also an element of luck and collectability to it as well.

It's not about that. It's about it being a celebration, and it should be something special, and I'd like to think that with this game they'd be especially happy it made it that far considering how it has struggled with players. That's a celebration worthy of something really special. That's the whole point. It's a gift that will tell us that "Yes, we're celebrating!!". All I'm thinking is that it should have been something really special. Every year.

With this, I have to admit, it feels more like "Oh, we made it another year, toss something out to the players, will you?".

Yeah, 'cause it's not like you've been able to play the game or anything for that period of time. You've been paying simply to support BWEA financially.

It seems more than a little strange that on the one hand in the dev blogs they thank the players for supporting the game, for subscribers that have been paying for the last 2 years, purchased a retail copy of the game and any cartel purchases helping to support the game its not an insignificant amount of money.

But on the other hand the anniversary is marked by some meaningless junk. Which makes it seem that saying thank you to the community has come down from on high as a direction for any blog posts, while player appreciation isn't so big on the list. Not even enough to come up with something special to mark the two years.

Simply solution to this. Each year for anniversary they should make a unique vanity pet that they include as well, that way it is an item that is available only for that years anniversary. They can still give us the other free garbage but they should at least change it up some every year with something unique.
