but he didnt buy it so he probably cant do that, the only way i think playing in EU/NA would work is to use VPN like eu players currently play at RU servers

Contact the source where you got your prize. That would be the smartest option since they were and are the original customer.

This would work. However, SE Asia would have the same issues as people have in NA playing Korean version, with high pings making it not super responsive in combat situations.

well... those of us in Oceania will be playing on the NA servers, so I can't imagine the ping from SEA to the US or EU will be any worse  :/

How exactly is he supposed to filter where people are from

How exactly is he supposed to filter where people are from

It depends.. I assume to attend to a giveaway, you either have to sign up upfront, or it's a giveaway live during a stream or event. If sign-up system, it should be very simple to filter through as any outside of the allowed countries shouldn't be able to sign up, and if they work around that to sign up, it's their own fault if they win. If it's during a stream / event, the host should inform about it. Example is with a Twitch stream, it should be mentioned in the description that it's for EU/NA and that some countries are excluded, including [... list of countries].

well when people tend to win something, sometimes they usually forgot about the "minor" details. especially when its my first time winning a giveaway after a million tries. im sorry if i didnt ask the streamer/giveawayer about the ip block. its entirely my fault!

You still mention no way to actually filter it. And I don't see anything stopping anyone from lying about their country of living either there.

Of course I did. That is exactly how to best filter it without having to manually verify identification to check their point of origin. Beyond that, it's the contestant's responsibility to actually have use of the prize. In this case, it's using a VPN or hoping the company can gain licensing in that country or otherwise get past what ever is restricting them from providing service to Asia.

No, that's not filtering anything, that's asking people to stay away from it. And it still doesn't stop people from lying.

According to his username and his post count (new account), it is safe to assume it is a troll. 

Conquerors Pack from a Giveaway, seriously guys.

what is wrong with that?

because he is a new account this seems more legit.

And considering there are a couple giveaways over christmas sthat actually gave away conquer packs (I even submited to 2 of them sadly I did not won) why should he be a troll?

Never expect people to trolla nd you will never be angry ^^ Just take it as it is and help him I remember the rabbit from Bambi saying "Mom mom always says. If you do not have something nice to say then better say nothing to begin with"  all hail bambi rabbit xD

as tiberius allready mentioned - in this case you are assuming wrong. I've seen those c-packs as a giveaway, too. Just didn't care, because I allready bought mine :)

I believe OP. I haven't seen any pack giveaways yet myself - I check twitch pretty often and I've only seen KR account giveaways. However, I won my $150 founder pack in Archeage from a giveaway. The streamer gave out many of those packs, and quite a few other streamers gave out lower tier packs. I assume it'll happen when BD gets closer to launch as well.

AA's packs were more expensive. Never stopped them from being given away in the hundreds.
