    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.
    I have only seen two lotteries so far, and one was just a flash test...
    I wish there was a way to see upcoming lotteries in the future.

    OK, not just me then. Actually came to post something similar, just in case there was something wrong. Have entered about three since the upgrade, and won one or two, but thats it. Pretty sure there has been nothing (at least not a long duration one) in over 10 days.

    One of the best new features of the lottery is there is 0 chance you can miss a lottery. You don't need to be logged in to see running lotteries and it is very explicit in saying there are no lotteries when there are no lotteries. No more vague "not eligible" comment. So if you don't see any, there aren't any (yes, you can even see lotteries you cannot enter).

    That said, the half dozen or so lotteries we've run have all be basic test type lotteries. Testing loads, prize delivery, and usability of the system. We're still tweaking it a little and working on making the experience batter (there should be a couple of more tweaks this week). So we aren't going to jump in with both feet until we're confident it's not suddenly going to go poof.

    How many things did we lost with community site update? Lorebook, Char pages, Kin pages, only to name those I regularly used...
    All becouse they said we will have new lotteries, blah-blah.

    And now when the update is here all we got is "No active lotteries." and we are told that regularly scheduled, timely run lotteries (2 times a week) are not to be expected to come back anytime in the foreseeable future.

    You gotta love em! You got to!

    Wait! I've missed a few of the test lotteries! But you say there's 0 chance I can miss a lottery?!

    The revamp was done for the forums, which is a feature more used than all of those other things combined. The lotteries were kept because it was the second or third most used thing and didn't break the forums like everything else did.

    Missing an entire server for me

    Hi, I have characters on three servers, only 2 servers' characters show up in the lotteries. How can I make sure my Brandywine characters show up?
    Thank you for bringing the lotteries back.

    You have to wait for Turbine to get the character export to work the way it should. This particular part of the old system was seriously flawed resulting in characters not being in the database, having the wrong level in the database and deleted characters still being in the database.

    Really liking what you've done with the lottery page so far, looking great!

    The tweak to how characters that have entered are now identified makes that a lot clearer as well.
