Largest Quiver Ever (in Contests)


Tomoyoshi April 8 2006 5:09 PM EDT

Too tired to think up a clever contest, but I wanted to hold one anyway...so here goes.
Contest is to see who can transfer the most base arrows [8X1] (+0) to my character Kira by noon carnage blender time on Sunday, April 16th.
- No entry fee required.
- Winner will receive 100k CB$ +.5CB$ for every arrow they send (slightly more than cost at shop).
- Everybody else who participates will receive .5CB$ per arrow sent (So you won't really lose anything if you play :-)

*Only base arrows will be accepted. Please don't send anything else because I'd feel bad for taking it and have to send them back to you.

Updates will be posted each day around 8:30 AM cb time (work permitting).

You know there's a limit to the amount of ammo you can carry, right?

[T]Vestax April 8 2006 5:13 PM EDT

Did I win yet?

Tomoyoshi April 8 2006 5:14 PM EDT

yeah...i get on about 3 or 4 different times a day, so as long as people merge the arrows before they send them (or even if not) I should be able to keep up with it...just thought about that actually. So thanks for asking :-)

Tomoyoshi April 8 2006 5:16 PM EDT

to restate :-)
send them to my character

Kira

but you are off to a good start Vestax

[T]Vestax April 8 2006 5:16 PM EDT

No really, what are you going to do with the ammo?

Tomoyoshi April 8 2006 5:24 PM EDT

probably ending up merging them with the arrows I have and never have to buy any again.
pretty much I'm just curious how many I'll end up with :-)

right now I can afford for 1.4 mil to be sent in, and by the end of the week probably another million.

Don't even know if that's possible, but if it happened that would be hilarious.

***Side note***
Please be patient when transferring to me in case my inventory is full. That's why I made the contest as long as I did. If you are serious about playing, cm me a time you want to send your arrows in if you're having trouble and I'll work with you.
That's all :-)

Zhakrin [Knights who say Ni] April 8 2006 5:35 PM EDT

You do realize that you can only have a total of 15,000 pieces of ammo on all your characters combined, do you?

Tomoyoshi April 8 2006 5:47 PM EDT

And this contest is ended.

I wasn't aware of the ammo cap, sorry for being such a newb.

My apologies for the contest forum spam. Please don't send anything else and admins feel free to close this thread.

On a positive note...The winner is Vestax with 7789 arrows!!! Yay!!!

Prize money of 100,000 + 3890 CB$ to be paid shortly.

The loser is me :-P

Looks like I'll have to come up with something clever in the end...

Tomoyoshi April 8 2006 5:54 PM EDT

Just to make sure everything is cleared up from my foolishness. CM me if you're stuck with base arrows now and I'll reimburse you for it.

Vaynard [Fees Dirt Cheap] April 8 2006 6:19 PM EDT

Don't worry that you made a simple mistake, it happens. Thanks for trying to arrange a new contest idea though. We need more people like that.

QBRanger April 8 2006 10:35 PM EDT

16,808 Arrows [8x1] (+0) 8,067

Largest quiver ever.

Check TAB if you do not believe it.

Doom Lit Sky April 9 2006 1:10 AM EDT

Whoa!

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 April 9 2006 8:03 AM EDT

someone on Cb1 had one around 30k arrows once.... : )

AdminShade April 9 2006 8:11 AM EDT

having so many arrows should be forbidden :p

Tomoyoshi April 9 2006 9:06 AM EDT

Thanks Vaynard.

Ranger, how did you get so many? I topped out at 14,990

QBRanger April 9 2006 1:41 PM EDT

53,038 Arrows [8x1] (+0) 25,458

Now equipped on TAB.

[T]Vestax April 9 2006 1:43 PM EDT

And Ranger's old stack is in the store!

QBJohnnywas April 9 2006 2:35 PM EDT

Lol, how did you do that Ranger? Because, no matter what I try I still get the same:

All your Characters together may not have more than 14999 ammo. This is so new players get a chance to purchase ammo too.


:S ????

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 9 2006 2:43 PM EDT

Ranger haxor!

Rizz April 9 2006 2:52 PM EDT

harhar ranger, its on!

Maelstrom April 9 2006 2:56 PM EDT

Ha, I see how he did it. Very sneaky! :)

SNK3R April 9 2006 3:03 PM EDT

Hey, does that mean we can fine him for having ammo over 14,999 like in the pre-limit ammo days? :P

bartjan April 9 2006 3:14 PM EDT

Where's Valgasu when you need him? ;)

My guess on how is 'retired characters'.

Hyrule Castle April 9 2006 11:43 PM EDT

how did he do it i dont get it :(

Special J April 9 2006 11:45 PM EDT

It's not hard to do ;)

QBsutekh137 April 9 2006 11:58 PM EDT

A loan/rent loophole? Or am I missing something else?

A Bathing Ape April 10 2006 12:04 AM EDT

16,808 Arrows [8x1] (+0)$8,067
These will forever be in the store.
its like a landmark or somethin.

DD34isback(justkidding) [Severswoed Accounting] April 10 2006 12:18 AM EDT

til cache flush of course

Flamey April 10 2006 2:05 AM EDT

im guessing you keep renting arrows out and they keep coming back.

Flamey April 10 2006 3:03 AM EDT

the rent thing wont work because you need 50k NW to put in rentals .

and the auctions i tried but you keep the actual item so im baffled :(

Zhakrin [Knights who say Ni] April 10 2006 3:38 AM EDT

Flamey, perhaps this answers your question?
