Case for: mmorpg.com veterans-only Hearthstone giveaway

http://www.mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm/thread/399036/page/1

Just look at his thread. Look at the comments. Look at it!!!

First: The thread title is a question about the giveaway. Not a giveaway.

Second: Day 6 was yesterday.

Third: Look at all the “Joined: 11/03 & 11/04s”

One can, with this info alone, make the assumption that these 11/04 people are duplicate accounts/bots/etc. They obviously KNOW about the giveaway and the rules to enter based on the comments, which means they’ve known prior to the thread itself. Which means many have entered prior, under different/multiple accounts.

Hey mmorpg.com. Give us a day or 2 of veterans-only giveaways. Only award keys to random selections of those who joined before this giveaway started. CVG did it. You can too! I understand that you are looking for hits, etc. Trust me… you’ll still get them in a vets-only giveaway! I mean, look at these zombies! They’ll post anyway!!!

Consider it. You might make a lot of your long-time members happy.

Cheers,

Mikey

    You have a 2011 account with only 4x posts.

    You are no better than anyone who made an account today to post on the betakey giveaway thread.

    You're quite disgusting for calling yourself a veteran and trying to milk more keys off it.

    Posts are not what make someone a veteran. Look how long i've had my account and how many posts i have. I've visited this site just about every day to read news and posts. Just because i dont make posts, doesnt mean im not a veteran. Hell, even before i made an account ive been coming here and reading news.

    Yeah I got mine day 3 I think, but it is kind of irritating seeing all the new accounts that are all going up just for this specific event. Although I do like the fact that it is bringing a lot of traffic to the website, maybe some of the people will stick around if they are actually new.

    The question is. How many of those people are actually "new" For all we know people making multiple accounts and trying to get extra chances, and if thats the case the sites not getting any new traffic then it was if he was on just 1 account.

    yeah I know what u mean also I was forced to create an account here (don't like creating accounts or doing surveys u have to subscribe spam to stuff I don't want to get a bit bonus so I do watch videos aka commercials instead)

    I created this after 2-3 months waiting for a heartstone key then found today a post that it was mostly from givaways btw I stopped playing WoW 2011 because I have no money to pay monthly to play (I'm lucky if I can buy atleast 2 games I want below 4€ in 1-2 months depending on my foodcost and bills)

    If ur lucky in games then if I'm in that team ur luck will reverse, but if ur in a tight spot I'll most likely save u

    because the harder to hit the better success I have and the easier the more I'll fail

    Posts contribute something to the community. 

    If you truly wanted to reward readers instead of posters, you wouldn't be saying new accounts deserve less, because there is a relevant amount of readers who never created an account.

    But you don't want that. You just want betakeys, and that's why you write nonsense posts, trying to cut off as much people as you can.

    Even when you don't deserve more than anyone.

     

    Again, bad news for you. Your old account is useless because you never posted, and the fact that you supposedly have been reading this website for years, means nothing with your arguments because there are tons of people who had been doing the same, but with no account.

    I'm trying to say that whatever your reasons are to cutoff new accounts, you'd be included in them as well or they don't even make sense.
