We'll be having a special lottery to celebrate May 4th:

  • Each ticket costs 1 million credits
  • You can buy as many tickets as you want
  • Deposit your ticket fee into the guild bank before 20:00 BST on Sunday
  • The entire prize pot is equally split among 4 winners
  • Blind Lottery: The guild ledger will be hidden for all ranks so nobody will know who bought tickets until the winners are announced!
  • You don't have to be online to win as all prizes are sent in the mail
  • The guild seeds the prize pot with 400 million credits
  • Entry into the lottery is only open to players aged 18 or older
The following is for those that want to know how the winners are decided:

  • Open the Alpha guild bank's Ledger page and sort the current week:
    • First by the "Name" column - A at the top
    • Finally by the "Deposit" column - Most credits at the top
    • Without both sorts the names will be in random sort order and everyone will see different results
  • Screenshot the Ledger page and continue using that instead of the live bank
    • This way tickets bought after the cut-off time don't mess up the draw /roll
  • Repeat the above process for Beta guild and then add the Beta rows below the Alpha rows
  • Count the total number of tickets bought
  • I then do /roll #number-of-tickets three times
  • Then it's just a case of counting the tickets top-to-bottom to find the winners
In the example below you can see that Zaratech at the top bought 800 tickets so if the winning /roll was 1-800 he would win. Rikachowski bought 500 tickets so if the /roll was 801-1300 he would win. If the winning /roll was 2068 then it would be Hpsorc at the bottom. Easy as that!
