    According to Sapience if everything goes as planned should have it some time in May.

    I don't believe it! Do you have a source?

    edit: does this include new forums as well?

    As to you odds of winning: they depend on:
    - how many players on your server have entered the particular lottery
    - how high the number of winners is set by Sapience for that particular lottery

    It's a raffle system, meaning a lottery is created for a selection of players from a server (for example anyone level 10-20 or hunters level 10-85) and a fixed number of winners is tied to the lottery, for example 100. Now if only 100 characters are entered into a lottery with 100 winners, everybody wins! But if 1.000 characters are entered into a lottery with 10 winners, you odds are down to 1%.

    It is my personal opinion that
    a) the lottery has become more popular meaning more unique individuals entering their characters into it
    b) over time each unique individual enters more of their alts into it
    Effects a+b mean over time there is a gradual increase of numbers of characters entered into each lottery. And a gradual decrease of you chances of winning.

    And then there's effect c): we don't know about the tweaks Sapience gives the numbers of winners. All I do know is that he tweaks, because he knows about effects a+b and wants to keep some control over the odds at winning.

    Personally very happy to see the lotto back. I have won some nice stuff over the years and always miss it when it is missing for awhile.

    In fact one of the reasons I have some many high level alts is because the really good stuff is for those toons. Made me get my alts to cap during RoI and trying to continue that in RoR.
    I wonder what IS behind that waterfall?
    The Player Council knows!
