Helloo! Locked down the old thread to prevent misunderstandings. Please no flamers/trolls/dokebis or the like!

 

Hide&Seek:

It's coming to a Renewal server near you ;) Maybe Wednesday, maybe Saturday, definitely in and around WOE time!

 

Two points on the lottery:

- No one cheated or is a cheater in any capacity with regards to the little lottery event, especially not Sapphic who was quite helpful throughout by compiling the list of names and providing advice. She/he also assisted with delivering some extra items to other players in game as I have been so hard to get in touch with. Oftentimes things can be read in the worst light (I'm guilty of this too), so to set the record straight the contest was done, the thread is also done. I'll contact the final winnars in game ASAP (this week I hope!)

- Secondly, this is how I dealt with the duplicate names. I simply deleted the extra names (as there were 4-5 repeats), and those numbers were blank. Example, one player held both #39 and #40. On my excel sheet I just blanked out the name beside one of those duplicates. If the number was pulled on a "blank" then I simply moved on - as it happens I didn't draw any blanks at all so whoever won, won. It's not an exact science, but 5-6 of the numbers counted for nothing even if they were pulled. i.e. they might as well have all said "Ultimate" on the blank numbers, at the end of the day had I drawn my own name, voila, I would have moved on to the next number.

In regards to the winners, Sir.. I believe you have miscounted.
I did not join the event, however, I got curious with the method you used to solving the problem created.
I proceeded to the method you have done and found only 4 of them correct, while the others were wrong.

The only 4 correct ones:
12. Akani
19. August
23. Caladium

27. Claw Of Khaos.

CORRECTED:

For example.
39.Eugeo
(BLANK). Eugeo
40. F.O.C.U.S

Wouldn't F.O.C.U.S be the original 40, since the 40.Eugeo is considered a BLANK?

After considering F.O.C.U.S being the original 40th man. I proceeded to count him as the 40th person and landed 43 on Giron.
46. Homulily
51. Iraelle
57. Kaiju No Renkinjutsushi
81. Plusle (Why? Because Myths is 74 and considered the other duplicate a blank and continued from there.)
                       74 IGN : Myths

                      (BLANK)IGN : Myths
                      75 IGN : Myzery
                      76 IGN : Nocturnales
                      77 IGN : Nolux
                      78 IGN : NorthernBegger
                      79 IGN : oO Yang Oo
                      80 IGN : pampers`
                      81 IGN : Plusle
 

93. sb120495 (Sarah was 92 and her duplicated being a blank)

                                           92 IGN : Sarah
                                           (BLANK)IGN : Sarah
                                           93 IGN : sb120495
 
112. Virsha

If this is not enough proof, you may want to recheck it again if you have time.
Thanks.

It went like this:

39.Eugeo
40. empty number
41. F.O.C.U.S

I thought you were just drawing names out of a hat? What is all this nonsense

 

I know right, I'm sticking to in game events for a while ;)

So that just meant that 3 winners are not really winners because 40 was empty.. In a sense, nobody won no.40, 80, and 93, because they were blank. xD
