The holiday season is upon us and, in New Eden, that means the start of the annual Yoiul Festival.
In past years this has meant an advent calendar-like series of daily gifts to the capsuleers of New Eden. You had to log in daily to get your gift, but that was all you need do to collect fireworks, snowballs, festival launchers, SKINs, and other special treats.
This year the Yule Lads have taken a different tack.
This year, no doubt due to staff cuts on Team Yoiul, the lads won’t be traveling to every station and citadel in New Eden to deliver daily gifts. They’re subcontracting to The Agency this year, so it will be like any other event. If you want some seasonal treats you’re going to have to go undock and PvE for them by completing tasks in The Agency.
If you’re not willing to go out and hit rogue drone sites you’ll have to pick up loot with ISK in Jita or via PLEX in the New Eden Store.
Local crank, bitter vet, and host of the Open Comms show Dirk MacGirk had this to say about the event:
And so it goes. Am I going to be able to find time to schlep out for my gifts this year when there are hostiles to shoot?
