-----> WHAT'S A WEEKLY DRAWING? <-----
A Weekly Drawing is a random draft held here on the Fractured forums on a weekly basis. There are two types of Weekly Drawings - Ambassador and Engagement, described below.
If you've been selected to be part of a Weekly Drawing, you are to compete with all other participants for a large Foundation Points reward.
Winners are always chosen through a random algorithm among all participants in the Drawing. The number of contributions don't matter - each account is entered only once in each Drawing.
The number of winners of each Drawing depends on the amount of participants - could be only one, could be several!
-----> AMBASSADOR DRAWINGS <-----
Are you part of an online gaming community?
Do you have your own blog, social media page, YouTube / Twitch channel covering PC games?
Then just talk about Fractured and post a link / screenshot to what you published as a comment to this thread. Blog posts, social media updates, forum threads, videos... Anything that helps letting the world know about Fractured and triggers a positive reaction in the audience will do!
If your contribution is significant and legitimate (spamming a forum you have never been part of, for instance, is not!), you'll be automatically entered in the Ambassador Drawing!
A hint: many members of gaming communities don't like see referral codes of online games and will automatically ignore your post(s), or even worse, get mad at you. Don't spam your Fractured referral code! If you're posting on the boards of a community, avoiding using it, or just provide it as a clear alternative to the standard link.
Reward: 2,000 Foundation Points
Method: if your spread-the-word contribution has been considered worthy, you'll be entered in the Ambassador Drawing of the week, and all the following ones. If you win one, you'll have to make another worthy contribution to be entered again.
-----> ENGAGEMENT DRAWINGS <-----
Dropping a message in the Welcome section or the "daily post" thread is fine and dandy - but not really... Deep and interesting!
With Engagement Drawings, we want to reward the meaningful contributions you leave in these forums - many have been posted already, and a lot more will surely come!
Some examples of the type of posts we considered for the Engagement Drawing:
- Asking a question on the game never asked before (or asked when some information hadn't been released yet).
- Providing feedback (including constructive criticism) on the design / art / gameplay of Fractured.
- Dropping your own ideas about possible Fractured features, lore...
- Discussing possible character templates, skills...
- Setting up a guild and recruiting other players.
- Discussing other topics in the gaming world (but not only) that could be related to the development of Fractured.
In sum, any nice, interesting discussion does it!
Reward: 1,000 Foundation Points
Method: if one of your posts/threads has been considered worthy, you'll be entered in the Engagement Drawing of the week during which you made the post/thread.
-----> COMMUNITY CONTESTS <-----
Community contests are not weekly nor random - but it's good to mention them here since the reward is always Foundation Points.
A community contest is a competition held on the Fractured forums, open to all registered users. The type of contest varies each time - it could be fan art, writing, role-playing, or even a game design contest. The subjects explored are several too - they may touch the lore of Fractured, its game mechanics, or be more loosely related to the game.
Reward: Foundation Points (varies)
Method: Dynamight Studios chooses one or more winners among all community members who have taken part in the competition.
