    It was my Blueprint but didn't have the skills to click it. So Buzz clicked it for me. We talked to Cyrus about what happened so I'm listed as the winner. Entropia Tracker just doesn't know it.

    Seems like a bit of a bending of the rules. Not sure yet what I don't like about what happened here. I'll think of something. Oh ya. It wasn't me ;)

    Gratz winners

    Gratz to all winners.

    It's nice that A-team have taken the time to publish all winners which is better than some other PP's.

    Thank you, Thank you this loot took both Della and I by surprise. Especially since I thought the event was already over.

    Note, they certificates we looted for the Alienware gear was able to be placed in the auction. We may be waiting on buyers instead of winners imo.

    LOL @ team crafting. This will go a long way to make players feel secure in their "own" accomplishments and abilities. Gratz to the other winners!!!

    It's as much bending the rules like it is to hire someone to mine or hunt for you.. (which i think is an excellent idea), so why not hire someone to craft for them?? eg. I give buzz the blueprint and the materials, he clicks it, and then he gives the return back.. (maybe if plus, share the plus in some way).. gz to winners.. GJ there.. :)

    GRATZ TO EVERYONE!
    This was a very fun and (for me anyways :D) random event that I had fun doing. It was like a scavenger hunt. You knew what had to be found, but you didn't know where or when you'd find it, or even if you'd find it.

    Sorry, I think Buzz should have got the Laptop. Hiring someone for competition purposes seems wrong to me.
    Entropia Tracker was the OFFICIAL "Judge" of the event and Buzz won.
    Next competition I guess will be full of top crafter, miners, hunters, all hired by people to hunt , mine and craft on their behalf. Highest Global is not the way to run the competition if hired ppl can be used. The random mine/hunt competition was much fairer - at least everyone stood a chance and it didnt rely on who you could afford to hire.
    Great competition and gratz to all the winners. It was a fun competition and well worth the effort. Well done all participants.

    Alienware™ Certificates that have yet to be redeemed:
    Keyboard #3
    Mouse #3
    Headset #4
    Laptop #2

    And these items? That are more than likely on auction I have only seen one of them myself on auction. Buy from Auction claim it yourself as winner. Buzz did the clicking for someone else he is doing the right thing and allowing the true winner claim the prize. After all would Buzz ever have crafted the winning clicks if the current winner had never approached him to? And Adams said he had Buzz click the item for him due to his lack of skills not to win a competition!

    I am aware of items being put on auction - but these items were won randomly, not in a competition based on skills.
    Yes Buzz has done the right thing, but he is still the winner based on the rules. He was the one that clicked the BP, he is the winner listed on Entropia Tracker, the OFFICIAL JUDGE. I have no problem with Buzz giving up the prize - its his to do with as he wishes. Just saying that based on the rules Buzz is the winner.
    I was also suggesting that "hiring" people in future comps may present problems. The crafting comp was deliberatly split into 2 seperate sections so that lower skilled crafters could participate and actually have a chance at winning, if this comp was held tomorrow how many people would be trying to hire Auktuma or Buzz to craft for them, and what if Auktuma or Buzz won on a hired click but refused to give up the prize. They clicked the BP, they are credited with the click, they technically won. Basically Buzz's SKILL was hired by Adamas. Adamas may not have won without Buzz's skill, certainly not on that BP as he admits he doesnt have the skill to click it himself.

    Buzz won. He should be credited with the win, with the side note that he has given the prize to Adamas as it was a hired click. Adamas should not be declared the winner based on the published rules.

    Its a technicality, but I think credit should be given where it is due.

    The guys that buy the last 4 items on auction or where ever they may be acquired from will get credit for the wins. Whats the difference? They didn't win it themselves.
