    Hi.
    I understand the reasons behind this - think its fair for the competition. On the other hand, I hope the items won't be looted in the week added - as that might change the prices of them.

    I hope the items can be looted because thats the only chance I stand of owning one of these nice items but ofcorse it must be balanced not like on RT where if something is included it drops so much for the first few days the market for that item is for ever affected.

    :) you don't get the point. Look at it from my perspective - as a potential winner/seller of 505 I don't wan't another one to be looted at same time as that quite likely changes the unique status of the gun and the sale. The chances for it to happen are slim in the extra 6 days added - still they exist, that's all I'm saying.

    "prizes will be given right after the event"

    its so hard to plan anything these days.

    I certainly was hoping to have my gun today by the way everything was worded. A "ceremony" is cool and all, but i'd rather have my weapon to use and enjoy this week.

    Just like the past month, delays delays.. whats to say we will even get the weapons on saturday? If its like the promises of past month im not even going to bother taking the day off saturday to be around =/

    I mean what can you do though...

    Bummer... AGAIN

    Its fullish to think of this gun as Unique as there will deffinatly loot more of it sometime. Sorry to say but it sounds quite selfish wanting no more of it to ever drop espessialy as it seems your only intrested in selling the item off for as much as possible instead of keeping it as an awsome weapon like most players would do if they manage to loot one of them. I would deffinatly not sell such an item untill I get a bigger one.

    Anyway grats to those who won these awsome weapons. Hope you guys have fun with them and remember not to flush them down the TT :)

    People, you were told to take your issue to PM. Please do so and whilst you are at it check your Inboxes for a PM from me. Don't post any more of that rubbish in the public areas.

    Surely you would want them to check that the results were accurate and the prizes fairly distributed though, yes? Which is worse, a slight delay (which, granted, isn't ideal) or the wrong prize being given to the wrong person? If you are slated to get a prize, wouldn't you want them to make sure everything was on the level? After all, we know there have been issues with the tracker not picking up some globals and we also know of the solutions that were attempted to help sort this out.

    Its just amazing to me I get + repped from 1 forum mod and deleted by another?

    {Deleted}

    Of course being fair is good for me. Try making me sound unreasonable because I was expecting my reward when arkadia team said "right after event" Most people consider right after to be... right after. not 6 days later.

    call me a criminal because I wanted to use the weapon I spent 6 weeks of intense grinding to get?

    Does keeping your word mean anything to Arkadia?

    Its a give and take..

    Being told to expect a item "right after the event" Is what the arkadia team provided, what else can we plan on but what we are told?

    *To put it in context after deletions* To those who are reading this after the selected deletions on this thread. Please know I was attacked by Jenny Fer, and another AA decided to jump in and tell me I am wrong... which is what got me upset.

    So now in light of the deletions everything I say will be taken out of context since you cannot see any of the build up and what transpired. (deleted posts) Again making me look irational, when the post that got me upset was a Ark Advisor who started trashing me for no reason instead of congratulating. But you cannot see that post can we? Due to the selective forum modification.

    Gratz to all those who slogged it! I did some hunting here and there but the old ped card wouldn't allow me to make it to the leaderboards :) I'm really curious to know how many other smugglers were looted in the course of the event.

    I know of one ark-101 and one cap-303, both smugglers.

    and full TT, sigh... and we, the winners have to make ours to 50% before we can use.
    what does that make us? are we really the winners?

    That cant come as a surprise to you, it was all stated well before the event started...
    Did you loot one during the six weeks? no? then I say you're a winner...

    oh well got to stop writing now

    I do think it's odd that the prize Smugglers aren't at usable value yet, but I still think it's a great prize. If you don't want to repair it, sell it. I'm sure it'll get a decent MU.
