    USeast ladder and non-ladder giveaway

    *deep breath*

    This was approved by Dredd.

    Ok guys. Here's the deal. I am not having much fun playing any more. I would like to give away my mediocre pile of stuff that I've accumulated. I think I may start HC...

    This is how I would like this to work. I have compiled a list of my main characters and their basic gear. I want this stuff to go to people who will use it. If you're not interested in what is shown, please don't enter this giveaway.

    This giveaway has three components: a nomination for a worthy forumite to receive and use my stuff, and a random lottery for the remaining items, one ladder, the other non.

    Feel free to pm me if you don't want to post the person's name here. The main part here is that they must be a nice person in their interactions with other members here. I will go back through posts to get a feel for how they have been with others. The two people chosen via this part will have first pick at a character's gear. I will post both of their names, and they will select their package based on first come first serve.

    The rules:

    1. In order to enter either part of this contest, the person must have been a member here for a minimum of one month.
    2. When posting your submission, first post whether you would like the non-ladder or ladder, then the number you chose.
    3. The number range for the each lottery will be 1 and 500.
    4. The closest number (without going over) to the randomly selected winners will win.
    5. I would like to close the contest this Saturday night (~9:00 EST), and will distribute the schwag to the winners shortly thereafter.

    Here's the stuff:

    Just to clarify IntelligentX, please nominate someone other than yourself. Can you think of someone just starting out that would be really excited to get some of this stuff?

    I received an item in this manner. It was the coolest thing to get something that I hadn't seen/had before. I'm hoping for this to be that way for someone else.

    Of course, that isn't to say someone couldn't nominate you. :smiley:

    i think i'll bid on #1 ladder. number 303. if i happen to win that there's only really a couple items in that one i really need, so you can give the rest off to other members =)

    as for a nomination? hmmm.... don't really know. i'm going to put olwe i think ^_^

    I'll go with #21 on the Ladder package 5. And if I understand this nomination thing right, whoever I nominate gets something? Maybe I'm confused, but if that's how it works, I'll nominate outlawonline since he always helps me pay for items I can't afford and helps with with quests and whatnot. :flowers:

    Just to clarify guys:

    You only need to tell me ladder or non, and your guess of a number between 1 and 500. If you win, then you can choose from a package.

    From the people nominated, I will choose two to take first pick, then the rest will be given away based on the lottery.

    ite well i'll still stay with my number 303 for ladder. =)

    so then it's whoever wins the lottery gets to pick an item first, and then the 2nd closest picks an item, then 3rd closest, etc. is this correct? =P

    edit: <suckup> btw nice idea :thumbsup: </suckup>

    Nope, I plan on randomly picking x numbers, where x is the amount of packages left after the two people nominated get their goodies. I don't want a cluster of people around one number, but for it to be spread out.

    I think I would nominate the bosoxx guy before me, even though I am a Cubs fan. (we'll get one soon!!!)

    Ladder, and I'll guess 113
    I'll nominate IntelligentX because he makes me laugh.

    Also, if you're starting up on HCL I have a bunch of low-mid usable items that you can have, I gave up on HC cause it became too laggy for me.

    I love you, but you're signature has gotten way way too long. Technically, they're not supposed to be more than 3 lines long. If it makes sense for it to be a little longer no one will complain, but that thing is just massive.

    Hahah...lol
    I was just seconds away from nominating Brad (bradtford = forum name) when I refreshed after reading the whole thread and see he just nominated me.....hmmmm and then it would look like we are in kahoots...plus he is does not need anything, But I must say he is the only Bnet person i would give out an account password to, and have.

    So I second the nomination of safetypro. All around stand up guy, good buddy on bnet, and someone who does what he says he will. Plus he is a Buffalo sabres fan.

    And to stick with the rules I select number 57 Ladder if it matters.

    And thanks Kobold this must have been what you were messaging me about last night....Ignore the pm about another nilly GC then, appears you won't need it.

    Spiff.
