I spent roughly 4 to 6 million gold on the lottery for Magincia, Trammel Side Only. I spent ALL my gold on every server I had gold on, I only had between 4 and 6 mil total. I bought 10 tickets for every plot, did the one ticket buy in for each of those plots and any left over gold I had on that particular server I placed 90% of it for plot C-1 and the rest on the plot by the arcane circle. I did this on 6 shards, I currently live on Cats but travel around for events and such. If I won more than one I planned on selling the extra and making a bit of money. I logged in to the largest of the 6 servers I wanted, because thats the one I really wanted and worth the most. There was a little message icon in the upper right hand corner of the gameplay window, it said "1 Message". I clicked it, got the 'you have won plot C-1' message. I was surprised because when I went to bed I had 1 in 101 chance of winning that particular plot. I won Plot C-1. I had to sell a soulstone token in order to place it cause I put all my gold in the lottery. It took me over an hour to place the house, I was frustrated because of all the talking (trolling) on here about it being broken. I kept getting the "You Can Not Place Housing In This Area" message. It wouldn't fit where I thought it should go, finally I chose a spot a few tiles over at random and it placed a 15x15 plot instantly. So as near as I can tell, it is working just fine... I was able to bid, I won, was able to place on the correct plot, and then roughly customize my house with no problems. The ONE house I REALLY wanted, I won. Now I just have to sell my old house on Cats and leave that depressing shard for this new one Anyone know if we get to keep the "Writ Deed" or if it will decay in 22 days? Id like to keep it. After my 100% by the book experience, I can only conclude that the system is working as intended and the complaints on here are sour grapes and trolling. Flame On!
