Worst part, He was promoting the game on e-bay, selling at 45.00 when you could buy it direct from Amazon for 27.99. Who's selling a Scam here ?????

All I can say is "Consider the Source".....

Cryptic wins by selling more product. Z3 wins by getting the ship/, 5 people win by getting the game. I can see it now:

"Greetings to you, the lucky finder of this Free Trial Code, from Mr. Z3R0B4NG! I shake you warmly by the hand! Tremendous things are in store for you! Many wonderful surprises await you. For now, I do invite you to come to play STAR TREK ONLINE — you and all others who are lucky enough to accept my offer. I, Willy Wonka, will conduct you around the game myself, showing you everything that there is to see, and afterwards, when it is time to leave, you will be provided your own personal copt of Star Trek Online . . . One more thing — be certain to use my Code, otherwise you will not be admitted. -Z3R0B4NG."


Rules of Aquisition:

Rule 111 – Treat people in your debt like family, exploit them [ruthlessly].
Rule 141 – Only fools pay retail.
Rule 142 – There’s no such thing as an unfair advantage.

Interesting idea. I like the concept. Personally if the guy wants to give away free copies of the game to people i see no harm in it. 5 people get a free game, he gets his referral reward, cryptic gets more subscribers. Yeah sure you people are all annoyed that you have to read these types of threads but you could just ignore them.

Anyways congratulations to all the winners out there. If i was more creative i would have entered.

I don't get this part. Now as far as I can tell the words in the original post haven't changed so I know I am reading the same post you are.

According to the words used to write the post he is saying that he will buy copies of the game for people. Now what I don't understand is how you are assuming that Zerobang can force people to subscribe.

The way it would work is that someone would enter Zero's contest, Zero would buy them the game and they would play. If they enjoy the game they would subscribe and Zero would get referral credit.

If they do not like the game they do not subscribe. From what I can tell Zero can't actually force them to pay any money on their own. If they do not subscribe Zero has no way to reprimand the person. He will actually lose money and there will be nothing he can do about it.

Wouldn't a scam involve the party being scammed to lose something?

I mean I get that you are mad about something Zoot, but I don't get why you keep making stuff up.

Just so you guys know,

I just recieved a PM from a GM_ and he said he was OK with the Contest, he only wanted the 10€ thing for the DDE to go and edited out that one line. (not if anybody would have wanted the DDE so far....)
