I'm pretty addicted to this game, in spite of the updates that don't seem to be tested before release. am at level 132 and play daily.
thought everyone would like to know that bulk gifting has changed. doesn't matter what you choose as item. it goes through server and comes out the other side in a rather random fashion suitable to the recipient's level.
Energy goes through as gifted though. I gift daily and with a crew of over 2000, I have to bulk gift. I alternate energy with items.
