Yep! The bonus credit from GTCs counts towards all deposit achievements and limitations, including the promo restriction or gift requirements :)

Yep, it would require an API to allow you to manipulate your wallet outside of the game, likely through Eve Gate or via CREST. It'd be fun!


This might be skirting the edge...and I know it's not quite this simple...but what about something like this:

Provide a service where I can get blink credit with a GTC
  • I am responsible for going to Markee Dragon and buying a GTC
  • I submit the GTC to you
  • You verify the GTC is good (convert to PLEX or whatever)
  • You credit my Blink account - some predetermined amount (buy out price of 2 PLEX) - or a % of Jita price or whatever

  • Whatever makes it so hard for you to Login, sell plex, transfer money. Really.

    Like you want to throw Real Money into a website but are too lazy to do 3 mouse-clicks that add a shitload layers of security and most important: less legal trouble for somer.

    You even get free blink credit for doing so. The only mechanical difference to your imaginary system and the system existent today is, that you actually put the GTC Code into EVE, rightclicl the item u just created, click sell, send money to somer.

    I'd imagine that a system where your effectively paying money directly to somer for tokens to play would change the gambling laws, auditing, etc. somer has to adhere to a lot. (I'd imagine with the current setup they skirt around most of the issues with money laundering, etc. that proper gambling establishments have to deal with).

    To be honest Somer blink doesnt seem to be at all fun or profitable that much, i only won 9 blinks and didn't eve get the isk worth full, probably made 225mil off of the site even thu the site says i won over 306mil, the wining ratio is pretty riged or unfair so far, and losing interest in the Blinks,. So probly closing my blink account by the end of the week. 46 blinks played and 9 won so losing interest in the gambling

    Did TurboJ win a blast in the past specifically between the 750T celebration and now? I remember him being surprised in the chat channel he won back then. If not may I request a list of the blast winners between the 750T celebration and now? Thanks.

    As you all know by now AT Eleven starts tomorrow and RvB will be taking part with our first match of this campaign kicking off against Why So Serious.

    However RvB being in the Alliance Tournament is not something we undertake lightly, or cheaply. Alongside many donations of all sizes and types from our members & fellow pilots, we are sponsored by the wonderful people at Somerblink, eve's premier mini lottery provider.

    This support has allowed us to put in an excellent bid for entry this year, field a glorious flagship - in our case this is the "Somerblink" which uses a Vindicator hull - and ensure we are as well supplied as we can be for this our third visit to CCP space, from implants to ammo to hulls.

    So thankyou to everyone at Somerblink!!!

    I have sent multiple mails to andrev and someset and I never got any type of replies for this so im putting it here.

    "in context I 100% effed up and im lf a 2nd chance and unban from blink"



    Over a year ago when I was on this character I attempted to make fake contracts to blink players in the attempt at scamming them and also raged in the channel a bit for stupid reasons resulting in a channel ban too.

    I then got a new character named Mr Chant and soon after Tridik and I behaved myself for well over 8 months.

    Then a short time ago Andrev Nox found out that Mr Chant/Tridik = Yummy.

    We had a short convo, and even though I explained I was behaved for such a long time, I was IP banned from the site.

    Its been a while since then, while behaving well is no excuse for the misbehaving at the start, i think the perma IP ban was a bit harsh.

    I no longer own Tridik or Mr Chant and im prety much me now.

    All I want is a 2nd chance, and the ability to gamble safely.

    I promise I will cause no issues.

    thank you.
