another question, how come the first stage lasts for 2 weeks? isn't that way too long time?
do we really have to nerd so hard for 14 consecutive days? isn't just one week a more "human" target?

Peace lol

Marketing Fail with a big "F" imo.
Come on Rolfski, you euro's barely work a 25-30 hour weeks as it is, not to mention all the holiday time you get, plus consider all the unemployed out there, plenty of time to head to Vegas if they win. Heck the current President would make then honorary US citizens and offer them free healthcare and tax exempt status too.. lol

While it is nice that there is the chance to win, basing it purely around score encourages kill whoring and as others have said it will also encourage those who are willing to give up everything else for two weeks to do so, potentially damaging their relationships, careers and even health.

A EU TR representative is going to be a (the) russian. Pretty symbolic isn't it?

Ahahaha, talking about the Iron Curtain... Either way, I just don't think the whole "score" idea makes sense. There're at least 3 Europeans I can name who deserve a ticket without even playing.

P.S. Oh, it's visa-based... It's not that bad, then, I guesss. I doubt it would be much of a problem to wrap up an invitation from SOE if it comes to that, afterall they are supposed to be people's persons when it comes to community management. At any rate, the comment about Daddy was more of a joke. Woodman has 2 TR that beat his score by a mile.

Here's a tip for all of the EU players out there, if the current president offers you US citizenship, don't take it.

To be honest I was going back and forward on this myself we thought if we spread it out longer than a week then people who would miss a few days could also still potentially have a chance. As I said we will take feedback from this one and optimise the next ones.

That's one way to look at it for sure. They deliberately made this a competition for the unfortunate under us that are unemployed and offer them an opportunity to escape their unlucky lives and join the Land of Plenty.

Aannnd its fucked.


The hyper boosts just released today completly screw the whole thing.

They give you 100% XP boost (instead of 50% as the other boosts) for 1 or 3 days, depending on wich one you buy.

Given the nature of this compettion, not buying them means you are pretty much out of luck.


To be fair, the whole competition was pretty screwed from the beginning, as you had to have the 50% XP boost + 50% from the subscription to even have a chance.


Pete: I hope you guys have some way to track base score, means before any modifiers like the subscription, boosts, population etc.

I do also hope that the 12v12v12 at the end is without any boosts or stuff.

Otherwise its not "may the best dude with plenty of time to game win", but rather "may the dude with plenty of time and plenty of money win".
