Free Stuff Friday – Prize announcement

With the final Free Stuff Friday draw starting this week on Friday 30th May I’ve decided to announce ahead of schedule the final prize in the series of Free Stuff Friday competitions that have been running in the lead up to EVE Online Kronos.

This week the prize will be a pirate battleship of the winners choice, which follows nicely the theme which started with pirate frigates on the 16th May and then moved onto pirate cruisers on the 23rd May.

Last week we had 59 entries for 3 prizes giving everyone slightly better than a 1 in 20 chance of winning with 0 ISK entry cost. Free Stuff Friday has been about celebrating the upcoming changes in the Kronos release so in the spirit of the whole community being able to get involved this week Free Stuff Friday will not be exclusive to Twitter and will simply require a comment on the competition blog post to enter. If you consider that in the last week the tweetfleet hashtag has had just under 1600 users then limiting entrance to Twitter really restricts the number of people who can get involved.

The exact rules will be posted on Friday morning before downtime so keep an eye on the blog for more information. At this point all I’m willing to reveal is that entrance will be free and there will be a pirate battleship up for grabs.

To keep track feel free to follow, like or add EVE manufacturing to your circles all of the relevant links to do so are below.



Free Stuff Friday – Pirate cruiser winners announced

The winners of the Free Stuff Friday competition this week have just been announced on Twitter they have all been sent direct messages with Rixx currently the only one to claim his prize.

I’ve been asked if I would mind sharing the way in which the draw is conducted just to prove things aren’t rigged so for those interested here is the ticket number spreadsheet and the links to the EVE dice rolls for week 1 and week 2 of free stuff Friday. Entrants are ordered alphabetically just so I can quickly manually check for duplicates.

With one more Free Stuff Friday still to come to celebrate Kronos which is released on the 3rd of June I want to make the final competition a big one. With that in mind I’m looking to open it up to the whole EVE community by allowing entry simply by leaving a comment directly on the competition post on the site allowing those who aren’t on Twitter to enter too.

As for the prize for the final Kronos release free stuff Friday it’s still to be confirmed but I’ll do my best not to disappoint and make it a prize fit to celebrate the upcoming Kronos release. Expect to see the final prize announced on EVEManufacturing.co.uk on Wednesday 28th May.

Free Stuff Friday Pirate Cruiser Prizes

Those of you who read my previous Free Stuff Friday winner post will already know that this week I’m giving away 3 pirate cruisers to three lucky winners.

The rules are really simple for a chance to win simply:

1 – – Follow @dannycentauri on Twitter

2 – Retweet the competition tweet.

This is a slight change of rules from last time, retweeting instead of replying is a simple change just to encourage more people to enter. Still would be great to hear what everyone thinks about the pirate cruiser changes coming in Kronos so if you have a minute reply and let me know your favourite of the ships too.

If you’re reading this then the competition has started and is due to close 19:00 EVE time Sunday 25th May. Winners will be chosen randomly by harvesting all entrants and assigning them a number, the draw will take place at 20:00 EVE time Sunday and announced on the blog and directly on Twitter.

Winners will be contacted by DM after the announcement to confirm the pirate cruiser they want and the character which it should be contracted to.

Congratulations to the first Free Stuff Friday winners

Kronos Pirate Frigates

Last Sunday was the draw of the first Free Stuff Friday, with the lucky 5 winners claiming their choice of pirate frigate as their prize. Here are the lucky winners:

First Winners of Free Stuff Friday pirate frigate draw

What was really interested to see from this competition was the amount of love for the Worm with many players really keen to get their hands on one come Kronos. The massive drone bonuses are something never seen before in EVE so it’s hardly surprising that players would gravitate towards them I’m very interested to see how the whole Guristas line is going to turn out.

This week the prizes for Free Stuff Friday are being announced ahead of schedule, however to enter you’ll have to keep an eye on Twitter. Just follow @DannyCentauri to get competition announcements and regular updates of all the latest blog posts as they are published.

Onto the bit that everyone actually cares about, this week’s prize!

I’m happy to announce that this week we will have three prizes and that each of the lucky winners will get a pirate cruiser of their choice.

To try and get a few more entrants this week the rules are changing slightly so to enter all you need to do is follow and retweet the competition Tweet. Still it would be great to know what you think of the rebalancing of the pirate cruisers and which one will be the best come Kronos but it’s no longer a requirement to enter.

Good luck to everyone who enters!
