Anyone in the world with a Facebook account who "likes" these pages are eligible to win the PC. The PC will be shipped from the US and depending on what country you live in you may have to pay import tax and any additional fees or taxes that applies in your country.


lol @ people complaining about location before reading the entire message.

also: if i were to win this i could effectively and efficiently test my hi-end amd/ati fusion setup vs this so-called intel monster.

No, they were right, I had forgotten to include those small but very important details. So this was all my fault. Smile

Lol @ people not reading a CCP guy stating he forgot to add it to the OP.

Anyways; Nice system, not going to like Facef**k. You really can't think up something original instead of using that horror of a social network crap to "promote" your business? You really think that using *beeeeeeeeeeep* will bring you more customers or something? I just got a call; get a clue wants you to return to earth. Also, for a prize of 3000$ you can expect to pay about 300-500 euro's in import taxes etc. (in the Netherlands anyways). Also, this compo means that anyone who DOESN'T play EvE can also win it....doesn't it?

Lolz. With my pc's motherboard fried, my M15x's Nvidia 8800gtx gfx card toast, and running an alliance relying on my Droid X and eve gate, it would be nice to win that rig. Unlikely, but a guy can dream!

Thank you very much! You are one of the really few companies which are truly global. Maybe because you are European company.

This ^^^
Could use some clarification on this since it's been asked three or four times already.

EDIT - OOPS! Just saw that they pulled it until they figure out the Facebook policy thing. Embarassed

As for the 'sociophobes' who are scared of Facebook, unless you've got something to hide, what is the point in worrying about your basic info being on the web? If you've ever ordered anything online, joined anything online, or filled out any kind of form that requested that info (regardless if the site stated that they never give that info out to third parties), your info is already out there. The way the web is nowadays, if you're on it, so is your info. Time to wake up and stop being so paranoid. Geesh. Rolling Eyes

UPDATE:

Yeah, complete and utter facepalm. We will have to take down this offer until we iron out some details on how best to properly run such a sweepstakes.

Can you blame us? We got a little too excited about it.. and didn't quite dot all our Is and cross our Ts. Will be back with you shortly.

You can blame the tease on me.

AMD would be preferable, but I don't turn down $3,000 dollars worth of kit on a whim/fanboi urge.

If i win i will sell the case and build the system in something more dignified. I will also sell the case defiled with artwork and buy PLEX for the money yielded, which in turn i will sell for ISK. Laughing

Edit: Read page three with CCP's facedesk (when facepalm is not enough) and the posts about some xbox fanboi in Brazil winning this - Yeah i agree the rage must be great if this happens! LaughingLaughingLaughing

Many companies, nVidia included, have run contests on Facebook just like this one. There must be a legal way to do it or those others wouldn't have been doing it all this time.

use something similar to the somer blink site.

When someone claims a ticket, they're given a random number between 1 and, say, 1,000,000. Each user is allowed 1 ticket (yes you run the risk of alts entering). At the end of the contest, all unused numbers are taken out, then a random number is drawn (from the used numbers); that person wins. Do a quick investigation to determine weather or not they're an alt who entered multiple times. If they aren't, success. If they are, completely disqualify them from this contest and all future contests. That alone should deter anyone trying to cheat.

This would allow all eve players to enter, and you remove the off-chance of some non-eve player winning.

I think unless someone reports the company to facebook, nothing happens - but do you really want to run the risk of getting some legal action taken against CCP, or their name being slandered?
