    Do Lotteries work now?

    I saw there was a new Lottery today, and tried to enter it. I have done this several times now since the site revamp. I hit "Submit", and nothing seemed to happen - no confirmation of entry, or any change at all in the UI. Has anyone been successful at entering a Lottery, and is the Submit button actually good for anything at all?

    Are you sure? Considering the very major and obvious revamp of the entry page we just launched and how several people have stated it makes it much more clear, I'm surprised.

    i entered the most recent lottery (yes, my thread about it was deleted ). upon submitting my name the interface seemed to indicate that my submission was successful. the character name turned green and the check box stayed check.

    edit - upon checking the page says i have not won any lotteries yet.

    What revamp?

    The site structure, page layout and design of EVERY page is no different now than it was 3 days ago

    There has been no lottery listed since 06/08/13 and I have logged in DAILY

    The ONLY change I see is the re-appearance of the Log-in button on the top-right of the screen
    HAF-X | ROG Crosshair V Formula Z | AMD FX 9370 4.4Ghz Black | 32Gb RAM | R9 290 4Gb (x2) | LG BD-RE | 500GB Samsung 850 EVO 550/540 SSD | Win10 Pro | WEI - 8.5

    You have to select some characters first. (Mark the checkboxes)

    Your thread was not deleted. Please try checking the appropriate forums and making posts there in the future. It was moved to this forum which is specifically for discussion of the Forums, Lottery, and Community site.

    The lotteries are VERY explicit. If the page say there are no active lotteries, then that means there are no lotteries. There is absolutely no ambiguity any more.

    If there are any lotteries running at all, then you will see them even if you do not have characters that can enter them. You will simply be unable to enter them. The description will tell you what level, class, race, server, etc is required to enter that lottery so that too will be very, very obvious why you cannot enter if that's the case.

    Thumbs up

    It seems to be working fine for me with the Flash Lottery that's up for 30 minutes right now. I checked 'deselect/select all' and it checked all my characters and then when I hit submit it displayed the entries.

    Thanks a bunch Sapience

    Very nice update!

    It works nicely, too.

    11/12 characters of my accounts do show up.
    But my level 15 alt, Warden on Brandywine, created about a month ago, is still not shown. Should I get worried, or do I just need to wait patiently?

    Bummer that you missed them! Several of my alts won the Perlino steed in that quick lottery. (Of course, not my steed collector, but that's par for the course)
