WWI Contest Note: Drawing Day Change

Discussion in 'WoW General Discussion' started by Eldorian, Aug 13, 2008.

    Eldorian Guest

    I've said throughout this contest that we would be holding the drawing Friday evening, however, I'm going to be out of town Friday and Saturday so I'm postponing the drawing until Sunday.

    Last day to enter is still tomorrow, just going to be a couple days afterwards before I can announce the winners is all.

    Sorry about that.

    Ah no worries mate. I of course expect to see you at midnight for the final thread! Hopefully your going out of town for pleasure and not business other that'd be a pretty boring weekend.

    Pfft. What's more important a trip or WoW?

    Ok... The trip.
     
  14. Eldorian

    Eldorian Guest

    WoW actually.

    My girlfriend's sister had her wedding yesterday. And any guy who's ever dated someone for a long amount of time and one of their siblings gets married can probably vouch for how unfun that is.

    Indeed, sunday is almost over now... (or maybe it's due to the fact that I'm european and you guys are not...?)

    Eldorian Guest

    It's 3 PM here... my Sunday has barely started :p

    I have the judging done for the beta keys... right now I'm just waiting for the technical side of things for the WWI contest. I don't have an ETA on that as I'm waiting to get what I need. So hold tight.

    well the good news is that if you posted on each day you have a 1 in 6 chance of winning a card (if my math is correct) which seems pretty good odds compared to the other lotteries I've played in (and lost). 877 posts total from all 7 days if someone wants to double check the math. That includes the double member posts and admin replies as part of the total so your odds are *actually* higher. Again, someone should check my math cause I'm not that good at it =P

    Kansas City is certainly NOT Pacific time. *chuckles* It's Central Standard Time (CDT at the moment, actually, I think we're still in Daylight Savings Time for a couple more weeks).

    Now Poway in sunny Southern California - that IS Pacific time. :)

    Any update on what's happening to the WWI cards? :)
     
  26. Eldorian

    Still working on things. Will be announced "soon"

    In about ten minutes you will have Blizzard lawyers knock-knock-knockin' on your door, sueing you for using their trademarked word.
     
  28. Eldorian

    Eldorian Guest

    Oh trust me, I think Stratics has been using it longer than Blizzard :p
     
  29. Joshmaul

    Joshmaul Guest

    "Soon" is not a trademark of Blizzard - "Soon" is a trademark of the entire gaming industry. So you're safe anyway. *chuckles*

    Tarielen Guest

    I'm not getting my hopes up... (or at least lying to myself that I'm not) This is the 6th contest for a beta key that I've been in and I'm still scraping at threads of hope to get in. I'm a stay-at-home mom and have become obsessed with wrath of the lich king. I want to test out my 5 70's sooooo bad (I have a lot of time on my hands.) I think the Gods of Gaming are playing a cruel joke on me, I've been trying so hard to get in and 2 of my guildmates have gotten the opt-in and they don't even give a crap about wrath. :sad2: this is my last hope of getting in....

    I'd love to see if i won anything but it is 2.30am here and i gta go out of bed at 6.15am xD so i best get some sleep, might check again in 2 hours :danceb::thumbsup:
     
  41. Unfortunatly, I was only able to post in one of the threads so my chances are not very high! :(
    Not to mention I never win anything, even if I'm the only one entered. :bored:

    Good luck, guys, and congratulations on those who are picked! :thumbsup:

    Thisel Guest

    Well, out of the 877 posts 20 players will randomly be chosen with a special program or Eldorian decides to put all the names into a hat and takes a video of it to make us suffer trying to see who won in it... Making it sound like the World... Of Warcraft will end if you do not win will not increase your chances or I too would be trying that.

    And yes the World of LK Betacraft will end if I do not win.
     
  48. Eldorian

    Eldorian Guest

    Actually I am on... I've been working on this all day and ran into some technical difficulties. Everything is ready to run though so I'm hoping to have the raffle drawing in about 30-60 minutes and then give me another bit to contact the winners and announce.

    I could have just ran through and picked 20 people, but I didn't think that would be fair and could potentially be biased. So I wanted to make sure this random thing worked fo sho and I should have been more prepared than I was. Sorry about that.
