I would like some free assets that are worth hundreds of billions to fake auction off too.

I don't see how this is supposed to be much better.
1. Instead of two unique ships and two ships that there are 20-ish of, it's now 2+3 completely unique ships. OR FREE TRIPS TO ICELAND!
2. Somer can still rig the whole thing
3. Somer decides who can and cannot take part.
4. Somer will still get a trillion ISK out of this.

Q3, How do we know we can trust Fansites and third parties to operate fairly and independently?

A3, We have worked with a lot of third party sites in the past such as EVE Radio, BIG Lottery and SOMER Blink. These entities (and others of course) have demonstrated a solid history of trust and reliability. As a result, we can verify that they have been straight and true in their dealings and this should be encouraged.

Have you read through their code and viewed all their accounts and made sure there's zero rigging going on and, in fact, no possibility of rigging the lotteries they run (this one included)? This is not just about them straight up taking the stuff. Atleast you didn't make the mistake in this thread of honestly telling us you can't be sure...

You can register and play a free promo blink which happen often and get an entry.

This is still blatant favoritism. Your giving a 3rd party entity free assets to distribute as they see fit.

Why not give them a host of T2 BPO's like you guys did the last time around? Even if the ships aren't distributed to players like NotSomersAlt, you've deliberately given a single entity an exclusive advantage over all other entities in the game.

How are you not getting this?

Is it RMT to buy advertising on a site that sells eve **** by just giving them the eve **** for free? Will any of that get new people to play eve?

Prize 1 and prize 2 - good Lord ...

Now I have to liqudate all my assets, sell the toon, steal ISK in order to maybe get this !

Yes I really want to go to fanfest and no, there is no way in hell I can afford it.

So yep, love the new prizes. They are simply amazing. Thank you and I will get to ISK mongering ....

How will you address the concern that you are effectively giving a for-profit player entity a major windfall due to increased revenue from players hoping to get these prizes?

They seem to be simply ignoring that point.

Correct, but you gain more entries, and thus a higher chance of winning, by actually depositing ISK and playing regular blinks:

Quote:
Here's how it works: Any time you play any Blink, you receive 1 ticket to the drawing (even if you buy more than one ticket). Plus, if you win the Blink, you receive bonus tickets based on the size of the Blink.

(For example, if you win a Big Blink, you'll receive three tickets— one for playing and two for winning.)


This is literally no different from spawning a T2 BPO for a player, except that a T2 BPO is much less lucrative than this.
