When someone gives me a free present I don't whine about it or compare it to what someone else got I say thanks and appreciate a freebie. A lot of people started over the years and stopped and then restarted or joined other worlds later etc. I dont care if someone started 5 years ago had a years break and restarted again. So many delete or go inactive and lose their toon then come back, its good for activity and returns. After all these players could have been playing for years themselves and due to rl had to take a break and come back. They deserve bonds no less than one online every day imo I don't begrudge them one bond and trying to find a reason to complain about any freebie or way of working it out who gets what and how is petty, selfish and ungrateful. happy birthday to InnoGames and free stuff for everyone playing past or present ... yup sounds like a real nice gesture to me, ill say thanks and leave it at that.
