So when a new blink is available and I want to start it...is there a way to see how much it costs before being the first?

Yes. Just select the prize and click Blink -- it will show you the cost and the ticket board, along with a Cancel button to use if you don't like it.

Tried to select a legion for next blink, got:

blink Too Large!

To keep things moving, we limit the amount of high-value blinks that can run at one time. This prize may sell slowly due to the currently active blink competition. Please try something a bit smaller, or check out another blink that is already running!

Oh my.

The response to this is greater than I could have expected. Another fifty blinks since I went to bed.

I am hiring fulfillment help as fast as possible to get you your prizes quickly, but give me a day please :P

Donde: checking out that bug. Thanks for letting me know.
Edit: fixed. $blink is not the same as $blinks lol

The concept is good, but I personally think the winner is the implementation. Great job on the interface.

I hate this thing. Its just to addictive.

I have to agree, the interface is absolutely simple to use. I also love the speed of the lotteries.

To be honest though, with the credit option on item's you've won, i think you've just started a (the first?) EvE casino ;)

You guys are the best. Thanks so much for the TONS of feedback I've gotten via mail and on the forums, and for all the compliments-- and the criticism too!

Some things coming soon via YOUR feedback:
* blink.talk
* blink Packages
* blink.pulse

More info coming soon :)

Just a bit more feedback:

I feel the cost of a plex blink is a little too high, 8x 50m = 400m, average plex costs 330m, it doesn't seem as appealing as the others given that a plex is all about isk, whereas a ship has other factors to make it attractive.

Also the payout on a caldari navy raven was a little dissapointing, around 100m difference between contract price and your isk offering.

Either way your service is great and alot of fun, I just thought i'd give my opinion.

blink.talk will be awesome. I played at work till I ran out of isk (gotta refill) but had good fun. The higher ones really take a leap of faith unless isk is no worry for you. The blink cash option is brilliant, because of the 7 times I've won, only once did I take the prize and that was a plex and it had no option for it.

Expanding on xadrick's comments, i agree that there is some diffrnces in prices. for instance a plex (330m isk) is a 50m isk buy in, where as the orca (320m isk) has a 43.5m isk buy in. No one expects you to run this for free, but i think that more standerd pricing would be better. For instance a mark up of 8-10%, which would be your cut. So a plex at 330 million, with your 10% mark up is 363mil, /8 tix is 45.375 round it to the half mil and you have 45.5 per ticket.

I understand that market prices change constantly, and of course ticket prices would have to vary. Im sure you can automate the market items, but you would have to manually enter the contract only items.

again great game, very good idea. i hope you are getting rich from it.

Thanks for mentioning those specific instances.

The formula is actually automatically tied to market prices, but contract prices can be a little harder to work with. I try to keep the margin low because I recognize that blinks have high turnover. I'll look at the specific items you mentioned. Regarding payout, there is a one-to-one formula that links blink cost to buyout price. So blinks with the same cost will always have the same buyout as each other. The CNR is one of the lowest-margin blinks (currently at about 7%) and that is reflected in payout.

PLEX have been reduced to 45M a blink, thanks for noticing.
