Hi there

Any ETA when the site will be back up? Otherwhise players can’t verify their characters and so can’t participate


(BIG Games) #4

It’s back up


(BIG Games) #5

My server has been extremely unreliable this round - More down than up I’m afraid.
So yeah, it might have been a bit tricky getting a request for a ticket in.

The server is 10 years old! so it has definitely served me well.
But it’s time to put it to rest…

I’m in the process of procuring parts for a new build.
With delivery times and out of stock items and what not - This usually takes a few weeks.

Unfortunately until then, my server will probably not be the most stable…

Hi

is it possible that something with the captcha has gone wrong for me? I verified all my characters and then sent the mails just like it is described above.
I was surprised that the amount of participants then dropped from 298 to 77. and checking afterwards I noticed that all my tickets were gone. Could it be that something went wrong with the captcha? Im 100% sure I prooved all my characters. What I also noticed my tickets first showed up on receipts page, then after the draw not. Last round I did it the same and tickets showed up even after the draw. So means that the tickets show up regardless if you did the captcha?


(Gustav Mannfred) #7

Same issue here, verified 13 characters and sent mails for all of them afterwards, now anything is gone.

Ahh, have you seen my donation that I contracted to you like 3 weeks ago?

update: now I verified 3 of my alts again and got this error when entering the receipt page. Looks like a crest/API problem to me


(Tairon Usaro) #8

Might be a stupid question, but you do have read the EULA terms concerning “Games of Chance”, don’t you. How is a lottery not violating this term ? This not meant as troll, but I really want to understand


(Gustav Mannfred) #9

Its a giveaway, you don’t have to send money to take part, just verify your characters on the site and send mail, that is not against the rules


(Anataine Deva) #10

Well that was bad communicated but intention, to give those who play fair and not using a dozen or a hundred alts an equal chance of winning.

I had with my one ticket no problems.


(Gustav Mannfred) #11

that would explain why my 13 characters got kicked, but how were you anle to be 100% sure that it were alts? Do you check IP? IF it were EULA prohibited tools that had been used and alts werent verified, it would be ok, but the FAQ and rules say one ticket per character, not real person. So I thought it would be ok to register 13 characters. Otherwhise I assumed it would have been communicated before the round and then I would only have registered one alt.
And dont see that as complaining or troll.
First I thought aswell that the captcha didn’t work
And do you know what could cause this error I posted above when loggin into the receipt page?Yesterday morning it worked fine, but after downtime I was not able to log in on the site anymore.


(Anataine Deva) #12

First, I’m only a ordinary participant who sometimes donates stuff. Like the surprise Marshal last monday YAY :tada:
The only informations I have are those, which were discussed during the draws.

The problem how to be sure if someone is an alt, was something that kept BIG from implementing the current measurements for a very long time. Therefore I know how hard it was for BIG to undertake the current actions and I can assure you that they were chosen carefully.

So, is it forbidden to participate with n alts? No it isn’t. But as a free giveaway, and we are talking here about BIGs own pesonal ISKs, he has every right to exlude those who are taking with their greediness the fun for everyone else away.

About the technical problems I can’t say anything. I saw recently a few threads were people were complaining about a not working ESI-API, so I guess it’s CCPs fault. :stuck_out_tongue:


(Gustav Mannfred) #13

Ok then lets hope BIG switches the site over to ESI soon to be able to play again.
