    One test lottery please

    So I am facing the same problem as most other people. I don't have any clue if my account is bugged or if there are no lotteries at all.

    And yes, I am well aware that Sapience said they are not on a regular schedule, but knowing that does not help at all, not one tiny little bit.
    I haven't seen lotteries for months, "not on a regular schedule" does not mean "once a year", right? Of course it's possible I missed several lotteries, even if I check every day on 2 accounts.

    So could we please have one announced (and with "announced" I mean the forum, not Twitter or Facebook)lottery that lasts longer than just a few hours (3 days maybe?)?
    Just so we can see if all our characters can participate?

    You can look at this link, even if you are not longed in. If it says " No Acitve Lotteries" no lotteries are running. If a lottery is active it will say something else, log in and it will then show all the eligible characters.

    Most of the lotteries that have taken place recently have been more along the lines of flash test lotteries.

    I also might have missed some, but typically the only lotteries I miss are the flash lotteries. I check the forums on a daily basis and the lottery page is where my quicklink/bookmark sends me to. So it has been almost two weeks since I've been in a lottery.

    Thanks.

    So our accounts ARE bugged or whatever.
    With 2 LTAs and one Premium Account I could not participate for months now, I also check on a daily base.

    I'm going to chip in here and say that ive checked pretty regular for lotteries the past 4 weeks since i resubbed, and havent seen any, those dates certainly fall inside that window, now i cannot guarantee i check every day, i may have missed a couple of days the first week.

    When i was subscribed before there was a button in game to do all this stuff, also, would it not be possible to send an alert to this new fangled alert system, i'm sure it would be nice to get an alert that is both useful and wanted occasionally

    Just the one test run would be super. Win empty air nothing (so not to stress the mail system), run for three full days 10-85 so we can see if any alt bugs.

    If you checked on a daily basis you would have missed most of those lotteries because they were not up for a full day. A lot of them were 1-3 hours.
    Unless stated otherwise, all content in this post is My Personal Opinion.

    I can't say whether anyone's account is bugged or not, but as Yula said, a number of them were flash lotteries (specifically the test ones) that were only up for a few hours. It can be very easy to miss lotteries if one only logs in the morning, or something like that (as I frequently do).

    Oh I think we can do better than test. I think around 5PM Eastern time today it would be a good idea to check the lottery page.

    Riddermark finally appeared and I've started entering. Why it didnt display on the first 3 accounts I checked with, I have no idea. Perhaps server load played a part. I did think it was odd that I could see the rest of the English language servers, as well as the german and french worlds while not seeing Riddermark.

    This lottery gives me an idea though.

    Could we get lotteries we have characters elligable to enter still sorted to the TOP of the displayed lotteries list? =)

    I second the suggestion to put lotteries we are eligible for at the top.

    Beyond that, I had no trouble entering. I have a few friends though that I've spoken with and it seems to be bugged for them. It tells them they have no eligible characters for the Riddermark lottery, but they all have at least one (and sometimes multiple) toons on the Riddermark server who are above level 10. I can get a list of names if necessary (none of them really use the forums, and as the kin leader I always try to watch their backs for them).

    Finally, some lotteries to enter, and the HD key sure is a sweet prize.

    What time is the "Ends Tomorrow" ? I can keep hitting F5 for 12 hours straight, but it gets tiring

    Obviously there is no way to truly know at this point. But yesterday the 1 and 3 lottery said "ends tomorrow" and the others said "ends Sunday". Now it is "tomorrow" and the 1 and 3 says "ends in 23 hours". Of course 23 hours would put it on Sunday, when it should have ended sometime today.

    Your guess is as good as mine. :/

    Logic says end time should be Sunday 15/9 06.00 AM Eastern (just like raid locks resets and the end of any other event). Only time will tell

    Is there a limit on the number of total eligable characters a single account can have entered? I have 26 eligable toons spread across 11 different servers, but my level 10 toon on Brandywine is not showing up at all... Anybody else having a similar issue?

    Have you logged the toon recently? If you just leveled him to 10 or just logged after a long time, it takes the system a bit to update.
