    ^ would like to know about this, too. It will encourage people especially new players to throw gold and money into raffle if it's streamed or to get to know more details about which program will be used.

    3 DAYS LEFT OF THE RAFFLE.

    For those of you who have a problem with this, i can guarantee you same people have like 30-100 vanq weapons that you never use rotting away in your house(s)....

    Someone already noted that they are trying to buy whatever weapon is to be blessed for 150 million.
    Sit back for a second and think.... How many perfect vanq weapons can you buy with one hundred and fifty million gold? Think about it for a second. You could buy so many perfect vanq weapons that you and 4 of your friends would never ever run out. 5 people running non stop perfect vanqs is way worse than one single guy using a single valorite blessed weapon.

    This doesn't affect things like some people would seem to think. There's a blessed valorite spear from one of the last raffles and it's been complained about once in two years.

    Lastly, if someone wins it or obtains it then uses it non stop on the field, it will simply come down to no one is going to fight that guy, or that guy will consistently be targeted first to die in GvG. It really is not as bad as some of you seem think.

    We wouldn't implement stuff that would ruin things or totally unbalance the entire servers PvP.


    I'd like to also add the winner is chosen just like every single other raffle that has been 100% legitimate.
    We did a stream one time, paid a company 50$ to do the raffle, and people still complained.
    These people who complain and yell "RIGGED" simply do it because they didn't win.
    DO NOT BUY TICKETS IF YOU ARE A CONSPIRACY THEORIST.

    Everything is completely fair and we've tested this system a hundred times and ran it live with all our players 10+ times now....

    Thanks for reading.

    I look at it like the lottery, I play every week but never win. I buy one ticket each week and that is what I did here, I bought one ticket. you cant win if you don't play.

    Win or lose, I am happy with what I have in this game. But if I do win, and could sell for 150 million, oh man I would for sure help NEW players more in getting going on this server.

    As both a conspiracy theorist and someone who understands basic math, rest assured I have not bought any raffle tickets this time around. :p

    Being able to die and rez at champ with a perma-vanq is not the same as fishing a couple poopy low accuracy vanqs per day. A no risk, perma-indestruct, val supremely accurate spear of vanqsquishy would be far and away preferable to anything remotely resembling that. Add slayer to it and... OMFG!

    So even though I *do* have a problem with this, it's not a dealbreaker.

    Yet. :eek:

    Why? Cuz personally I think that the rampant pokemaster imbalance is a far, far, FAR bigger issue to quit over than the three blessed weapons on the shard.
