Yay a chance to win a Tuvok to finish him off!! Oh wait, i’m not American…...

Probably a good thing game is governed by US Laws, heaven forbid DB comes under any other jurisdiction and they had to publish actual RNG odds/data to see what we are really gambling…...

These contests only serve to antagonize a large portion of the player base. Let’s do a contest next where only males are allowed to play. How about one with only people under 30?

Out of curiosity can we have a rough run down of the % players from say the top 5 counties, just to see how many you are excluding?

I know there are some rules about give aways counting as lotteries (for instance ROI must have a skill element) but surely for you most common countries of your customers you could spend time and effort to figure the rules out to not exclude as many people.

Also why post facebook terms and conditions for something that could be on twitter and not facebook. Are there no twitter terms?

Not spam

Excluding the rest of the world again after the last thread became all about the same thing.

Stay classy DB

I would like this thread to not derail into complaints about the fact that this is limited to US residents.

This is a restriction that will apply to all future giveaways like these, that is not our preference but it is what it is.

I hope that some of you will participate on this thread, just for the fun of it, and to show off your creativity smile

Sorry, but I’m a US resident with Facebook and am encouraging non-participation in my fleet, squad and facebook friends because of this restriction AND you’re giving away a past 4 that so many of us have anyways. Double blech.

Thanks for taking a stand, very classy. We all understand the restrictions, but I think it would be better to simply offer a contest with no rewards that is open to everyone. More people would participate.

I entered for Golga (fleetmate)  too good not to get it in there officially.

This is <snip> please refer to our Community Participation Guidelines, thank you. ˜Shan , look at almost any other online game such as Megapolis for example and there are regular giveaways of in game items or currency without these restrictions. Doing Better appears to be coming to a disappointing end

If you cannot include all of your player base in these competitions, then perhaps you should not run them.

I think I’m done spending money here. I wonder if other non-US players feel the same as me.

I purchased the £25 Double your crew offer for the first time this month because I was encouraged by DB’s recent performance and was considering doing it more often.

This attitude has completely changed my mind on that.

P.S. Shan, I don’t believe you needed to snip my thoughts on that. No untoward language was used and your censorship actually makes it look like I did swear.
