This is a shout out to Bolawan@bolawon in game for
suggesting convincing me to do another giveaway in Star Trek Online. Also I’m getting my DS9 Bundle this week, so I thought I would celebrate by passing off some stuff to your guys.
I’ve been trying to think of what I could do this time around, so I’m planning on doing a bunch of things beside tossing freebies at your faces. Here’s a couple things I kind of want to do for the giveaway (events aren’t going to be in order, just stuff going around the game)…
- Give stuff away (duh)
- AMA (ask me anything) session (PG 13 please!!)
- Storyline missions teams
- Chat sessions
- Bum fights?
Of course the first bullet point is easy, I just want to be damn generous and give people stuff. This ranges between stuff for your ships or stuff for yourself. I’ve arranged them in these packages (Quantity):
- Ground pack (1)– Mk XII weapon, a stack of hypos and energy cells. If you are too low level to use the weapon, you’ll get an another stack of hypos and energy cells or a ship console (I’ll ask you in game).
- Ship pack (1)– A stack of Shield, Weapon, Auxiliary batteries.
- Stack of 20 energy cells (3)
- Stack of 20 hypos (4)
- Random Mk X and up ship consoles
- Random amount of Energy Credits (ranging from 100 – 100,000)
- Other stuff (Placeholder for stuff not related to the stuff above, no lockboxes of course…)
This is kind of a first come first serve, but it would be pretty random on what you can get. One prize per account, just so everyone gets a chance for a bit of something. If you like, you can give away stuff to other people. Just trade with them or mail it to them.
Ask Me Anything/Chat Session
One thing I kind of want to do is an AMA like Reddit. Also I’m lazy for Reddit, so doing it in STO for the sake of doing it in STO. I’ll have a channel up and we’ll meet up, info on the bottom. Of course you don’t have to be in the zone with everyone else, but I kind of like to see where everyone is at in game in terms of customization and stuff. You can use this time to just address random thing about STO or my blog. Of course certain rules apply to the AMA and the chat session:
- Questions should be PG 13
- Show some respect; no racial, harassment, spam.
- No spamming for giveaway prizes (because that’s spam too…)
Currently I think socials zones have a cap of 30-ish people or something, so people getting into the same zone to check me out might be hard to do.
Of course Star Trek isn’t Star Trek without getting a team of people together and doing stuff. So I’ll announce accepting LFT’s, 5 random players will be selected to join me to go gallivanting around the galaxy. From killing Klingons to obliterating the Borg. Though a few ground rules:
- No fleet actions, STF’s and Vault events.
- If you leave after invite, you’re place is taken by a random person.
- I get a say out of the missions people want to do (If they want to do a mission, help them out. You might get some loot at out of it).
Ye Olde Fisticuffs (AKA Bum fights)
From my last giveaway, I had some time to look around Andoria. So I’m thinking, lets do it again. This time no weapons or abilities, just straight up punching each other. You may even receive a prize from me if you show me your prowess in pugilism. Some ground rules so we can try and get some legitimate PvP going:
- You may keep your armour on
- No healing and no weapons (not even melee)
- Prizes award randomly for the sake of fair giveaway-ness
Information – Where, when, how, what
When is the event?
Starts at 5 PM Eastern Standard Time and will continue like an epic party! (Woop woop!!)
Where will this giveaway start?
I’ll be at Starfleet Academy, wandering about and chatting to people on our private channel.
Oh em geez, private channel. How can I join this channel?
Right click your chat bar and go to your Channels tab, from there type the channel name and click Join. I’ll post the channel at the end of this post. You will need this channel for AMA and any info of where I am in game…and to chat with people doing the same thing.
