Get-Well Gamers (www.get-well-gamers.org) will be holding a raffle this week during the Austin Game Developers Conference. Your purchase of a $5 raffle ticket will not only go towards buying video games for children’s hospitals, but will also give you a chance to win a Caldari Raven from the EVE Battleship collection. Tickets may be purchased at the CCP booth or online via Network for Good (www.tinyurl.com/getwellgamers). When buying raffle tickets online, be sure to enter “Raven Raffle” in the Designation field. The drawing will be held at 2 pm Central on Friday, September 18.

Wow, sweet! I gotta pitch five bucks for this, especially since I use a Raven myself for missions and stuff! Very Happy

After looking at ticket prices to get in to the Austin Game Developers Conference, I'm having second thoughts. $995 for one ticket is a little too rich for my taste.

Just to clarify, is the raffle for a "Raven Navy Issue" in game item, or one of the nifty sits-on-your-shelf items?

He said "Caldari Raven from the EVE Battleship collection", so I can only assume the latter, the physical real-wold toy model.

I would also assume it was the model to sit on your shelf, since you cannot sell in game items for cash

Except that you're not selling an item. You are donating to charity. The devs happen to give you an in-game item (if that's what this is) if you happen to get your name drawn.

Hey everyone, this is Ryan from The Get-Well Gamers Foundation. I'm sort of reluctant to blow my anonymity, but I figured I'd hop in here and help answer some questions.

If you donate through the online donation link, it's only $5 for a ticket- going all the way to Texas isn't required.

What part of Germany? Because I've got a donation that came in from Dortmund just fine.

Any other countries that are having problems donating?

The fact that the news article itself links to the model Raven in the EVE store ought to put this question to rest.

I have another, though: if you don't go to the GDC in Austin and buy multiple physical tickets, does putting in a multiple of $5 online get you that many tickets, or do you have to donate $5 multiple times?

I live in Austin Texas and the Austin Game Developers Conference is only a 15 minute drive away. Sucks that the admission ticket price is so high cause I wanted to visit the CCP booth.

There's not much to see at AGDC. A few folks from CCP will stand around a booth that has their logo and maybe a couple monitors of the game running. It's nothing big, usually. The past couple years have been like that.

Now, if they raffled off some ships at the booth, that would be sweet. I've been to AGDC the past couple years and I'll be there tomorrow. AGDC is not a conference like PAX or E3. It's very professional and game development oriented (no booth babes).

How exactly does someone outside of America donate, I can see where it wants me to choose a state but that's no good for me(I'm from Australia).

Every multiple of $5 will be conted as another ticket. $10 = Two Tickes, $20 = Four tickets, etc.

I don't know what you need to do to get it to work from a foreign country- So far I've collected online tickets from Iceland, Germany, the UK and others, so I don't know what would make it work for some countries but not others, sorry.Confused

5$ donated all the way from Estonia. PayPal doesn't care where you live.

Well it wanted me to sign up, and then even after putting in a false postcode (it wouldn't accept my real one) it still wanted a state when I tried to donate. Then it wanted a phone number. There was something else but I can't remember, but it was not allowing me to do it.

You do need a PayPal account before using PayPal to donate, you know. If you have that the donation site only asks you to create an account simply by entering your e-mail, and choosing a password. Just untick any spam fields they might send you, and you'll forget you ever had an account with them. From there it takes you to PayPal, confirm, back to donation site, confirm, and finish

Good news- CCP just confirmed there is going to be a second Battleship at the raffle- an Amarr Apocalypse! So, if you were iffy on getting a Raven, now you've got a chance at an Apocalypse instead.

Thanks again to everyone who donted, and best of luck to the contestants!
