Amusing side note: I actually had to run the randomizer twice because it picked my own posts in the thread several times haha!

    What's a randomizer?
    P.S. If someone from there doesn't want to go or can't.... I got dibbs.

    A randomizer is a program used to pick random numbers. I set it to choose random numbers based on how many posts were in a thread. Once it generates those numbers, I go to those specific posts to see who made them. Shazam!

  • #9 biff_exploder
    hehe congratz to you all crazy bastards! HAVE FUN THERE! and bring some exclusive video content :P
  • #10 PlasticComplex
    forget the randomizer, did you guys even read the posts? i think reading everyones reasons for wanting to go should have decided who gets picked instead of going completely at random.

    grats to winners.
  • #11 Red_Panda

    ROFLMAO! No just your char level.:D
  • #16 mockery
    Congrats again all! Four of the five winners have already replied and confirmed that they will indeed be attending BlizzCon. I've already sent their info off to Bashiok over at Blizzard. The only person I've yet to hear from is Pwnubis.

    Also, to the person who asked earlier if we read the posts, of course we do... that's part of the fun of doing this whole thing. But, as I stated in the original thread, this was a giveaway based purely on luck... plain and simple.

    Hey, if your randomizer is pulling your name up multiple times chances are its not actually random, and you are starting on the same psuedo random numbers produced by your machine. If you want your number to be truely random and not just picked out of a list you should involve time into your programming statement, so that it is sure to pick a different starting point out of the algorithm every time. I'm a Computer Science Major, if you want help designing a new random post selector I could program a better one for you, Message me if you're interested

    I didn't even enter, but I think it's a real shame that older members, as well as newer ones who actually have some pretty good reasons and stuff for going get looked over through a randomizer.

    I distinctly remember people winning Tyrael pets that had like ... 3 posts in all.

    Like I said, I wouldn't have been able to go, so it's cool with me, I just feel sorry for the other members who have been here a long time that are getting shafted by randomization. lol

    congratz to all the winners. have fun, we know you will :)

    I just wanted to say to all those guys complaining about something to please keep quiet. You haven't won the tickets!!!! live with it. don't try to organise another "randomiser start"... I didn't get a ticket but I'm cool. you always gotta remember that if you play a game of chance, you can also lose.
