The time is fast approaching (Sunday!) when we get to the second anniversary of the successful HEX KS!

Like last year, I'm going to give lots of stuff away... What should i give away? :)

I'm looking for a producer tier? =P

I definitely think you should give away some set 3 packs. Should be launched soonish, maybe some set 3 draft packs. Aa bucc sleeves, promo stardust....

HB Hex!!!

Honestly, I wish CZE gifted limited use Autograph stamps to those who have the Vanity Cards. Corny as it may sound, I'd really like a shot to get your autograph stamped on my "Colin Pset".

Set 3 packs for sure. Also I'll gladly accept an unused Grand King code if you have any laying around... :D

I really should stop torturing myself with giveaways. I'm probably not going to stop, but I should.

Even as someone who thinks he >isn't< cursed by bad luck and wins about statistically as much as he should, I just walk away from these things salty if I don't win anything, and on average most people aren't going to. Alucard going "Boom" by this point makes me wince, because 98% of the time it means someone who isn't me won a thing.

And what it ultimately means is that I keep walking away from what are acts of fantastic charity worthy of celebration with this awful, bitter taste in the back of my mouth placed there by a jealous little part of the human psyche. Which is not how I should ever feel about this community, a community that contains people like Colin.

BOOM

You have won my sympathy.

Congratulations.

On Topic: Bucc sleeves seem pretty popular. Jadiim sleeves if you still have any knocking about would be an amazing prize. Poster sleeves? So yeah, sleeves basically.

I honestly don't know what you could give anymore Colin - between cards, packs, sleeves, and even flights, you are going to find it hard to top yourself.

You have a few new options though - Stardust for one, new set 3 singles/packs, or even potentially chest contents (although you would have to set that up as a "I open X amount of Y rarity chest and give Z winner the contents, when the feature is live." Or if chest trading goes live at the same time, the chests would work too.)

You could always offer "Dinner with Colin".

Side note - the 2 year anniversary would be an amazing time to add to the ranks of Exalted. Colin looks lonely.

Fyren I feel ya man, in regular streams from Cirouss it's not as bad, when he raffles off like 2-3 doors you can tell yourself "ok that chance is really low", but just now I finished watching SilentSnakes "500 Follower" stream and he raffled off like 50 valuable items in 10 hours. I didn't win anything while others won multiple times. I wish I could say it doesn't sting, but it does, at least in the short term. In the long term I will remember that I DID win a few times in other streams and giveaways and will be able to appreciate this awesome community that gives out valuable stuff as if it's candy ;)

Anyways, 2 years Hex - good times!

As far as what you should give away, Colin, I love Ryuukans idea:

"Custom-made Highlands Magus robe"

Okay, I hope this isn't considered pretentious (and my sincere apologies if it is), but the first thing I thought of was something along the lines of: "Wow, Colin tends to Go Big. He even gives away trips. How about a future trip to HexCon?"

Anyway, that was what popped in my head. Colin's generosity is always amazing and his support to the community is awesome.

No matter what it is, thanks again Colin for thinking of the Hex community! :D

Two years...the game is not even 60% done and I have devoted so much of my time to it for 2 years now. Makes you think how awesome it is going to be in the future, due to how awesome it is now.

Fyren I feel ya man, in regular streams from Cirouss it's not as bad, when he raffles off like 2-3 doors ...

I have cut down on streamwatching because a lot of the streams turned into minigames that messes with my motivation for being there in first place (main motivation is hanging out with a cool community). But thats probably just me.

On topic: Apart from what has already been suggested, maybe some donation scheme...? A very half-baked idea, but I was thinking people could donate set 1 and 2 packs to a pool for new players and get some of their donation back in set 3 packs. Idk...maybe its too much trouble, but it was a thought.

And in any case, happy bd Hex :)

Not sure who else even comes close really.

I don't want exalted just to become "friends of .... club" it needs to be someone who has earned it. If it was a streamer I am not sure you could fairly pick one over any of the others.

No one comes close in terms of unconditional giving. There are many folks in the community that are great, but either come with them questionable attitudes or personal gains. I don't think there is anyone that quite fits the build yet. Colin set the bar way too darn high.

No, you're right, that was asinine of me to bring it up here. GL to all the participants when Colin does his Thing!

In my (extremely plentiful) personal experience, the only way to handle that jealous feeling in the back of your squirrel brain is to lean in to it HARD. I'm quite proud of the fact that I have the absolute worst luck of any card game player ever, and enjoy proving it to people who don't believe me. It's a big joke now in all of the twitch channels, and we have fun laughing about it. And on those exceptionally rare times when I actually DO win something (sometimes even a good something!), everyone gets to laugh at me again for winning when I said I wouldn't. ;)

"They're laughing with me Michael... they're laughing with me!"

Regarding the giveaway, I want the same thing I wanted last year: oodles of common chests, and oodles squared of gold to roll them all with. ;)

It was exactly Snake's channel that lead to these thoughts, yeah, listening to them give out random giveaway after giveaway to a seemingly-small number of lucky people was just... frustrating.

So actually, on that note, I would like to propose that instead of random giveaways, continued support be shown to community leagues like the Pauper and Rock leagues. I was exceedingly grateful that Colin was willing to back them to such an extent, and would like to see another such - one that, rather than having people enter !Keyword, encourages playing more Hex!

During that big "name your own prize" giveaway, the thing I asked for was to have a beer with the guy and talk some Hex...and I was mocked for it! Obviously this prize has my vote.

I don't want to see the Exalted become an annual thing. I'd rather it be something that is only handed out when it's truly earned in such a way that no one questions the decision.

That's the thing, I'm not sure I have that out. It'd be easier to complain if my luck was purely bad, but I got Bucc sleeves from Sithos (thanks again! ^.^/), as well as a couple Extinctions from Alucard and a fair number of Set 2 packs, most of them from Cirouss.

sukebe
06-04-2015, 10:15 PM
well, I can't speak for anyone else but these are the things I would love a chance at winning:
(not in any particular order)

-A 2 or 3 day paid trip to Hex headquarters so the winner and 1 other person can play at HexEnts game night
-set 3 packs (normal and/or primal)
-set 3 playsets (either entire playset or seperated into rarity playsets)
-Hard to get sleeve codes (buccaneer, poster sleeves, etc)

I can't believe the 2 year anniversary is so close. It has been a fun 2 years and I look forward to many more :-)

The time is fast approaching (Sunday!) when we get to the second anniversary of the successful HEX KS!

Like last year, I'm going to give lots of stuff away... What should i give away? :)
I'm generally all for your cool big splashy gifts but in all honesty the coolest thing i could think of would be like a lot of buccaneer sleeves. While i would die to go to hex headquarters and I'm sure others would as well i would honestly rather see like 50 people be very happy with a awesome sleeve than 1 person getting a very grand prize. Either way i know you will make it very cool and i will be there cheering you and all winners on and treasuring anything i might win.

I think this and the can-you-persuade-devs-to-give-a-vanity-card are the best giveaways, but alternatively if the devs & yourself could conspire I think the funnest method would be a launching an "alternative kickstarter" for non-AA Repels. :o

If you/they have a spammable account & the time for counting, let people send their Repels in and have thresholds for various prizes & reveals (equipment, set 3 cards and WoF loot)!

ShaolinRaven
06-05-2015, 03:52 AM
As others have stated if you want to do smaller rewards and a big reward you could start out with set 3 packs, move into set 3 primals, move into set 3 single sets, and have a lucky grand winner get a playset of set 3.

There's no "event", per say. Colin is just celebrating Hex's birthday and being super-generous as always :)

if this is a "What should be given away" thread, then I agree with the cameo in your dungeon, or the vanity card. those are great Ideas for someone/anyone.

if this is a "What do YOU specifically want, random person on the forums" then what I would like is a Monsuun, as It's the only card I've yet to play with at all in set 2. (ironically, I never got a pack raptor in set 1 from a pack either, I just have the AAs from KS) I also wouldn't mind a flight to Gencon... Or a Beer/dinner with Colin next time he's in the NYC area.

Actually scratch the card, I want that last thing.

I would want something where I could have a lasting impact on Hex. Whether that is a Vanity Card, helping to design a card, creating a foe to go with an arena deck, or simply getting to create dialogue for an encounter in the game.

Barring if those are unrealistic though - I'm always a sucker for any sort of collectible I don't have. (Jadiim Sleeves, Collector AAs, ETC)

Sorry to not give an answer before, but that's me who used that code. And of course I want to share it with all of you. In fact, i didn't use it; it was my girlfriend who saw it and use it on my account and she made me the surprise. OMG I love her so much and you too Colin. Thx for all, I love all of you. Sorry for my bad English anyway :p. And for the people who want to know what it was: Jadiim's Sleeve.

Well, if it was sleeves, I probably couldn't have redeemed it anyway - as far as I am aware, the only sleeves I am missing from the events are the Jadiim ones. Shame, I was feeling hopeful when I was logged in less than 60 seconds after Colin posted it. :p

Well, if it was sleeves, I probably couldn't have redeemed it anyway - as far as I am aware, the only sleeves I am missing from the events are the Jadiim ones. Shame, I was feeling hopeful when I was logged in less than 60 seconds after Colin posted it. :p

Oh, Xenavire... So close... :(

Gratz on the Sleeves, Erklan! :)

I have others to give away (both Jadiim and Bucc, and a bunch of other stuff). Some random. Some I'll do a giveaway for that might require thought/skill when I think of something to do.

I'd recommend putting people into a list and picking randomly rather than deciding it on net/typing speed, timezone, etc.

Well, I'd make a comment about never winning by pure luck, but my two big stream wins have been insanely lucrative (not that I resold them, but in terms of value...) So I can't really complain.

I do know I'd love to sometimes win a few small things to have a more constant happy feeling, than to just bomb out a few big wins almost a year apart. :p

I probably should be disqualified for whatever is upcoming though - Colin hosted one contest last week or so, I won a few packs there IIRC, and the Monsuun during the Generals Tent...

I'd feel bad for the guy with the code. Especially if it was someone who was planning to gift it to someone - then that person lost a code and looks like a jerk.

My schedule is... chaotic... and not particularly amenable to streaming consistently. I will stream on the day Set 3 launches though (twitch.tv/hex_colin)... :) I'll definitely post ahead of time so that folks know.

He's a guy that has been very generous to streamers/various community members. Given away a ton of things to people either for giveaways or just to reward them for the effort they put into streaming and the like. Doesn't post much on the forum but is around. Very understated. He's like the batman of community giving.

I strongly believe it isn't just about the money. It's about the commitment of time and energy and positivity to the community. Helping to grow the community and publicize the game. Money surely helps with all of those things, but it shouldn't be a determining factor when it comes to choosing another Exalted. My personal view is that there are currently 5 or 6 folks who deserve consideration for the honor. Time will tell... :)

Nero is definately an awesome guy. I wished I opened my mouth more when I watch streams because he drops amazing gifts on random people :)

I think many of the streamers have done amazing work, but there are also people less exposed than the streamers who do a lot for the community by creating tournaments, building web content and ressources.
