Question: Is it allowed for players to "game the raffle" by creating duplicate accounts to obtain more raffle tickets?

Lately, many of my friends and I have been noticing some players using duplicate accounts (e.g. as many as 50) in an attempt to game the raffle system. Players I have spoken with in-game complain that this gives a handful of players an unfair advantage in what is supposed to be an event that gives every player an equal shot at winning the prize. What's more is that prizes won on these duplicate accounts are not really going to be used by the player after the event is over.
If you are willing to chuck your most precious possessions like phats because someone said words like crashing/dying/quitting and then find yourself unable to rebuy for what you sold for, then you don't deserve to own a phat.

They have the right as long as they are paying members. People "game" all sorts of things in this game. People use so many accounts to buy out items, drive up prices, then dump and make gains. "

If they didn't add a total level requirement for the raffle they don't give a shit how many accounts you're using for prizes.

They're getting membership $ from the people with multiple accounts why should they care.

I can't see the benefit to it anyway. None of the prizes are tradable, as far as I remember anyway.


Actually, the golden weapons and armor drop a hefty amount of GP if destroyed/lost. And the deathtouched darts create loot that is transferable.

Botting is against the rules. Having multiple accs isn't. As far as I know, there is no rule that states that each person can only participate in the raffle from one acc.

What I think is going to happen next year is they'll ask the community what should be done about it. At least that's how they made it seem on stream when they talked about it.

Sure, I hundreds of accounts, but those accounts are as deserving as any other players.
