i guess they figure its an opportunity to squeeze some free advertising from us, since if anybody uses their actual main social media account for it there's good odds their whole social network will see it.. gross

  • Players must provide their correct Region & Family name in the post.

  • The image must be posted on either Facebook, Twitter, Instagram on your own page, set to public, and include the hashtag #BDOcherryblossom2017 with your post submission.

    Soooo...players must dox themselves in order to participate? Are you kidding me @CM_Aethon? Can't you just message the winners for their region/family name after the contest is over to prevent cyber stalking. I mean, that the way to do things responsibly and protect players.

Why not just uploading pictures in the forum? Why should we use cancer while selling our souls to Zuckerbergs stakeholders?

Family name/Region...  Sure I think the mean your in-game family name and... say if you're like me, from the United States, what's the harm in posting that you're from North America?

 

That having been said, when I enter into this contest and post: MrsMaxxma and NA (North America), that should this be what they are taking about, then what harm is it to post it on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram?   It's not like they're listing your home address as one of the entry requirements.

Any where that you can get the general Cherry Blossom theme from.

Yes, if you do not wish to have your personal identity tied to your game account we do understand. I have also brought up the concerns expressed here with the folks handling the event, if anything changes you'll be notified.
