This is a pretty creative way to get people to grind... makes me want to grind

A raffle within a raffle... Cant believe Nvidia would let their name be anywhere near this game. The game itself has really good potential but there are game breaking bugs that have been around since closed beta. "Tech Support" for this game is a bunch of 15 year olds with anime signatures in the forum who have no idea what they are doing.

I personally 'spammed' their tech support with a game breaking problem that is effecting a large percent of their player base just so one of these people would ATLEAST make a sticky about it and start requesting system info so the dev's (who still haven't acknowledged the problem) can look into it. Once I seen some of the Moderators and Tech Support people replying with "^.^ Not sure it doesnt happen with me" or "Reformat ^.^!!" I quickly lost all hope in that game.

I do still check the sticky on the forum about the major bug this game suffers from to see if it has ever been fixed, been ~8-9 months and the sticky on the forum is like 10 pages long without one reply from tech support, or a mod. Mind you the thread just only recently got created about a month or so ago.

Interesting marketing ploy. Hope it works for them.

This sounds awesome as hell... AT FIRST.. unfortunately I come from a forum that had a big industry forum, and contest posts started forming, they were really great at first, but soon exploited, not from the runners (well some of that too) but by the bots that were submitting and bumping the forum threads.....

because this is promoted as a collection system.. and not random.... and perhaps it dont even matter of that... watch the bots increase 500000%

Farming for gold is one thing.. now farming for nvidia cards and the 10,000 companies who are now going to clone this idea...

Let me tell you know, its been done, and now everyone hates those contests... same will happen here..

If people want to bot because they're too lazy to play, screw 'em.

However, people who can't afford to fork out for graphics cards? I have to say, go for it. Bot away. Can't blame them at all, things aren't cheap!

one might wonder if this contest is genuinely naive, stupid or ignorant. maybe all three.

I thought it was a good idea. *shrugs* And can't most botting programs be auto-detected nowadays?
