my country not included, why do you exclude some players from participating in this new contest ? i have been a subscriber for a long time and even when i’m not playing the game i stay a subscriber to support the game and this is the thanks i get ? you have an unhappy customer here and i’m sure there are other players who feel the same way

Country eligibility is definitely a question we have seen quite a bit, hopefully I can lend some insight. In most cases, the reason a Country would be eligible/ineligible is dependent on their respective rules. Each Country has their own rules depending on the type of contest, the individual prizes, the dollar value of those prizes, etc. If your Country is ineligible for the contest, it is likely due to our inability to meet the requisite criteria for Contests and Promotions and we’re either prohibited from offering the promotion in your Country or limited in what actions we could take. Please be aware we are constantly reviewing these types of rules and working with relevant internal teams to expand the number of Countries that can participate.

We apologize if you’re ineligible, our intent will always be to include as many Countries as we can. I hope that clears up any confusion. Thanks!

I’d be playing the chapters whether there was a contest or not, but the way to submit confuses me.

You only need to do two things!

  1. Click enter now on the May Promotions page to agree to the terms of the contest.
  2. Complete Chapter 13 during one of the drawing periods.

We will be drawing 5 random people who are entered in the contest, that completed 13, at the end of each 5 day period.

If you complete Chapter 13 on the 9th, you are only eligible for the drawing on the 10th.
