Good afternoon all,

Over the weekend, we looked into an issue where up to 60,000 tickets were being registered as ‘submitted’ immediately after each raffle refresh.

We have resolved this problem, which was related to global variables not resetting properly, and last year’s tickets being submitted into this year’s raffle. No prizes were given to those players who were erroneously entered into the raffle.

This is one of a few hiccups we have had with the raffle this year, so we wanted to give a little something back. You will each be receiving an additional 10 raffle tickets later today (we will broadcast when this is live). We will also be increasing the number of prizes given out each day by roughly one third, as shown below (the increased number of prizes will not be visible on the Raffle interface or Balthazar chat until next Monday).

The updated numbers are:
Monday: Protean packs – 20,000 -> 27,000
Tuesday: Bank deposit box – 40,000 -> 54,000
Wednesday: Deathtouched darts – 20,000 -> 27,000
Thursday: Golden Barrows – 7,000 -> 9,500
Friday: Golden Warpriest – 5,000 -> 7,000
Saturday: Golden Chaotic – 2,500 -> 3,500
Sunday: Golden Godsword – 2,500 -> 3,500

As mentioned by Mod Shauny last week, we’ve also increased the minimum level required to enter the raffle each day to 150 total level.

We hope this makes up for the first nine days of the raffle having issues, and thanks for your patience guys!

Another waste of time as a result of hosting a handout event that doesn't belong to the game -- please, just remove the raffle completely and redistribute its rewards into actual gameplay, so that you can earn them and it means something.

This would be the best outcome.

Unfortunately, it isn't going to happen.

And this update to the Raffle just isn't good enough either. The entry requirement should be increased substantially. Minimum of 1500 Total level, is the least I would personally set it to.
