    or is there a survey/census coming out and you need to show how many " players" you have logging in ?

    this seems weird to me.

    And what exactly is 1mil for them?

    They probably make 10x as much weekly.

    Is it gonna be in crowns or gold? :) :)

    Seriously, though, you just need to log in and then you enter the raffle, right? Nothing affects your chances (how long you play etc) - just pure luck?

    And why is that? haha

    @ZOS_GinaBruno or anyone from ZOS who knows.

    I think quite a few people would like to clarify this..
    What is my country of residence? Same as citizenship? I've been in the US for about 4 years (grad school), but not a citizen, so what do I put as my country of residence? The US because that's where I currently live (and where I am and where I should be after the Draw Date) or the country I come from?

    Please, help.
    Thank you.

    Then why do it at all and not something that the entire community can be a part of? Right now they just exclude the majority of their playerbase with this.

    I'm not saying "this ain't cool idea"..
    Since winning this in my current state of life would be really helpful and amazing.
    ..but to be perfectly honest I would still rather see you using all this money for making the game even better, this way we could *all* enjoy your " 1 million".
    The prize could be like 1 million crowns (lifetime) or 1 million in-game gold and not be such a overkill.
    Anyways..sharing is caring :)

    To all the players who are ineligible, I'm sorry to hear that. Still, I'm really glad that ESO is giving back. I mean they already have a loyalty program, but now they're giving away actual cash? I dunno about you guys, but I'm really happy that they're even trying. Frankly, WoW would never do loyalty programs much less a random monetary giveaway to players.

    Considering all you need to do is register and log in, what's the assurance this is going to be won by an active player who cares about the game?

    I already have friends who left long ago and have zero care for the game reinstalling and signing up. They will log in once a day then out again to go play other games.

    It doesn't mean it's going to go to a "loyal" player though. As I said in my earlier post. Bob who quit the game after a month can now sign up and log in and walk away with the money.

  • duncan_cougarpreeb18_ESO
    Don't want to burst your bubble, but this isn't about giving back. With the price reduction of 60% for the game itself now, it's a last ditch effort to get create some interest in the season sales, so that new folks pick up a copy now.

    Just read the fine print. That's not 1M$ cash now, but 50k$ on a year by year basis for 20 years.
    Well what's going to happen if there is no ZOS left in x years, mmh?

    Given the dwindling player numbers (at least on the PC servers), the near dead PvP, and now also PvE trials and even some smaller group content going the same route, the inability of ZOS to balance classes and/or skills, the amount of bugs seems to be the only number that is growing rapidly lately.

    Expect to see delays in content updates; with a "surprising" announcement sometime next year or so that also the gaming client will become "free to play". With DLCs (you need to have to play/gear for end-game) and more crown store items (latest then with a clear pay to win label) will be what's paying the rent for the servers.
