Nothing has changed for me, though. First year, I got 1-5 on all characters; last year, just year 6; this year, just year 7. Obviously, I can't speak for your recollection, but I don't know of anyone who received 1-5 at year 6 after having already received those same gifts at year 5. You are the first person I've heard this occur to. Could be you benefitted from a lucky glitch in the year 6 distributions? If not, I guess we're back on the recollection theory. But either way, there's been no change, at least not for any of my characters, and the system is consistent with the description provided in the anniversary announcement.

and the fact that not all the "presents" were assigned to my characters, especially the ones that were created recently or not used for long time
I don't have consumable or other items that should be added to the character (and I can't possibly have used them, since I didn't play for months with these characters)
