    Hello, my wife and I play from the same IP.  If we both enter the contest, would that disqualify us?  We both use different MMORPG accounts.

    It is a little sad, as much as I live on this site I don't recognize a single one of those usernames in the winner's list. Oh well, such is life.

    If you REALLY want a key snag one from IGN friday by subbing to their prime membership.

    That's what happens when a website cares more about obtaining a ton of dummy/alt/bot accounts than giving something to their long term members and visitors.

     

    This hand-out will be no different, in fact most key farmers will probably obtain even more keys to sell with this next wave.

     

    I think they should have a hand out for accounts older than one year.

    Maybe there is something wrong with my math but..

    You receive one bonus ticket per 1 day you login plus your intitial entry ticket (5 max). These improve your odds of winning!

    How is it possible to gain 5 entries, if you get 1st one today, 2nd on Monday, 3rd on Tuesday and 4th (last day of giveaway) on Wednesday?

    Haha.  Wow.  Here I thought they were at least going to copy paste / search function IPs or locations and then the IPs thereof.  Seems the bots or cheaters win out again, in the end.  Even on websites, they win.  *chuckle*

     

    Honestly, they should come up with a better way to go about this.  I would've been against such methods prior just because of the ruckus it would cause, but now that the honor system has been shat on twice, the date of an account creation should come into factor here, in addition to number of posts.

     

    Date created:  Number of days, number of posts. 

    • The tickets shall not exceed the number of days (to prevent spam of forum content by new accounts) on the account. 
    • There is a cutoff date of the number of posts to the start of the contest to prevent spam for those who have more days than posts. 
    • This both rewards veterans of the site and allows for anyone to join to have a chance.

     

    Or something along those lines, as this seems to be one of the only ways to make sure people have a chance against bots or people intent on cheating, especially if they have been loyal to the site (who will likely make a hundred or two accounts irregardless of any situation).

     

    Poor showing, old chaps.  It may be hard to implement a new system, but it may be necessary if simple IP checking with entry contests is avoided.  Granted though, actually enforcing contest rules may be easier as a whole.  Not even similar names or locations that were right next to each other were given a quirk of an eyebrow, it seems.

    As long as we all log in everyday, they don't care..

    I'm sorry, what's this about?

    I think the last week should be only for members who already have an account, also that account must be older than a year or something like that.

    You didn't miss anything by a day.  It just started today (7/13) and runs through (7/16) so you can only get your initial entry plus 4 bonus entries for logging in everyday.  Total = 5 entries.

    I guess I am missing something from this, I only got one ticket from today. 14 15 16 is three so four total? Where am I missing one? 

    I hope this time there isnt too many entries, love to snatch a key. Glad they are doing this lottery instead of just throwing em up during a time frame.

    What's the point? There we so many obvious fake/duplicate account winners last round that's it's just silly.

    Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)
