Why complain as an unknown? How can we tell you from one who won or someone just wanting to cause problems? I wish I had entered more characters, maybe I would have won something. Making claims like this just ruins nice events for the community.

The rules didn't say one entry per person, just one character per account. Many people have more than one account :0 this is why we can't have nice things

private readonly List<string> _ListNames;

private void PickRandomNames()
        {
            try
            {
                Random rnd = new Random(DateTime.Now.Millisecond);
                var numPlayers = (int)NumberPlayersBarEditItem.EditValue;

                for (var i = 0; i < numPlayers; i++)
                {
                    rnd = new Random(DateTime.Now.Millisecond);
                    var num = rnd.Next(1, _ListNames.Count);
                    textBox1.Text = textBox1.Text + _ListNames[num] + Environment.NewLine;

                    _ListNames.RemoveAt(num);
                }
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                throw e;
            }
        }

It reads a list of names from a text file WP provides to use when the event is over filtered on their end and we select a number of players as you see in the screenshot and then it prints out that many random names from that list.  Its not rocket science.

I do not have beef with you Sholin, or Smokies as a whole. Only a certain few people. It's a complicated story behind but please don't just believe one side of it. Alaska and Inu are both my friends, and I wouldn't have done this to them. Anyways, it's irrelevant to discuss here and hoping the mods will just destroy this entire thread before it goes out of hand.

 

I hope you are well though! I do miss hanging out with you guys and helping you out. Take care!

We will review the list of characters who won items from the raffle to weed out abuse. In the future, there will be more measures to counteract potential attempts to chesse the system.
