Looking at this, you are mad at him, and are calling me a [EXPLETIVE]?

 

I am not mad at him. He makes me laugh. I am trolling him, and he bites so wonderfully.

 

As for what I'm calling you, I'm not calling you anything, not on this forum at least. None of it would get through the filter.

Regardless of whether or not the giveaway is rigged, it would have been nice if WG had instated a "no repeat winner" policy since it's not like they're giving out a ton of type 59's so it'd be good to make sure that they ended up in different hands.

This I agree with.

It's Wargaming..is ANYONE surprised? 

 

Freaking joke.  It's bad enough to have happened..but why is it even possible for the same person to win?  What kind of contest doesn't have some time of multiple winning restrictions?

Oy vey, back to the 'veiled' not-so-subtle insults. That one wasn't funny, though. Please try again.

Hey guys,

 

Just to clear it up, nobody won two Type 59's. The player you mentioned won one Type 59 and a Gold/Credit/Premium code. With a few hundred prizes given out today on the stream, the chances of someone winning some prize twice are actually quite higher than the odds you're giving.

 

There is no rigging in the drawings on stream, they are indeed random (I'm sitting right next to the guys that are drawing the winners, and can vouch for them).

I was first to comment "warecase" and didn't get anything, can't say if it's rigged, but that was depressing enough to quit.

Being first doesn't make you an instant winner. It is done randomly from the group of replies.

He can make an intelligent post so that qualifies him as having no life.

 

 

 

Such logic.

trolling is an excuse because you are mad at someone.

So now you're a an internet psychologist, too? Wow. Much amaze. So surprise. Please show me where it says that it's only allowed to troll someone if I'm actually genuinely upset with them. And then show me why I should give a crap about that 'rule'.

 

Bull[edited] posts like that is why I hate you with more passion than any other active poster on the forum, HB.

So, the stream had about 11K watchers max.  So, assuming everyone watching was following and posting to win, that makes the odds of winning a Type 1/11000.  The odds of winning a second type is 1/11000.  So, 6 possible chances equals about 3/12100000 of getting two types.

 

Or, still better than powerball.

 

EDIT: cross-posted with someone who knows what going on.  Guess that settles the question of "How did someone win two Types"

 

They didn't

A. I was a Troll

B. I know what it feels like to say that.

 

I have been in both scenarios, and I know what you are feeling, I will stop responding now.

You're starting to slip there, wiziwig. Some of your posts had a whiff of wit, but not recently.

A) That does not make you an expert on why people troll.

B) What what feels like?

 

You apparently know what I'm feeling better than I do. But that's ok, tell me more about me?

And why are people even allowed to win multiple prizes? That's just insulting to your other players that are following the rules of what to type, not spamming nonsense, are using only 1 account, and are not botting countless entries each drawing attempt.

Although, if you're looking for prizes, your odds are a much better 1/6K right now.
