At the end of November 2018, I received a weird e-mail saying that Daybreak Games wants to send me some holiday gifts, and requested my shipping address.
The e-mail didn’t come from Daybreak Games itself, and the person on the other end wasn’t anybody I knew from PlanetSide 2 team. And as an owner of a small, but steady website, I receive a pile of spam and scam email every week. I also made a few enemies over the years. So I was quite suspicious, and reposted the e-mail to PlanetSide 2 reddit, but later was assured by Roxxly there was no foul play involved.
And indeed, today I finally received the package. Inside was a one-sided postcard, two metal mugs with “Daybreak Game Company” written on the side, and two pieces of delicious Belgium milk chocolate on a stick.
Needless to say, I’m very grateful for this gift. It may be small, but the recognition from the developer team of one of my most favorite games ever is priceless, and the mugs will serve as a lasting reminder of all the fun times I had with it.
