Quote from: "Matt"
We're revamping the daily login bonus. Now instead of a trivial amount of resources, you'll get a lottery ticket for each consecutive day you have logged in, up to 10 tickets, for each of two lotteries.

Daily lottery.
1st prize: 20,000 credits.
Runner Up prize: 10 Artemis Class Light Fighters (which will be added to your homeworld).

Weekly lottery.
1st prize: 100,000 credits.
Runner Up prize: 2 Athena Class Battleships (also on your homeworld).

There will be 9 Runners Up in both lotteries.

Quote from: "Matt"
I didn't realize what day it was, but it's no joke. And yeah, even the rankest newb can get a couple Athenas this way.


Assuming it really isn't a hoax ...

Huzzah!

I am looking forward to seeing this tomorrow.  I was already awarded my 500 Ore, Crystal and Hydro when I logged in this morning.

Can you imagine this scenario?

Andy is away for a week, and forgot to go on vacation mode.  He turns inactive.

Bob sends an attack at Andy's homeworld.

Andy logs on before the attack.
Andy wins the lottery (with 1 ticket, I guess!)
Andy gets 2 Athenas.

Bob gets ninja'd by the lottery.


I think it's fun and exciting when it does happen!

yeah, but saying that something isn't an april fools joke doesn't mean it's not.  I know many people who pull that...and it still ends up being a prank.  anyone have screen shots?  I don't remember what my log in said.....give it a day and we'll know for sure.

agreed, bit lame even for noobs... maybe 100% extra mine output for an hour or something, then no matter what your rank is you get a bonus equal to what stage your at  :mrgreen:

Actaully what would be cool is if the prize periodically changed, say its this for a couple weeks, but then its a larger vessel for a week.  Or a large resource dump.   Though I will miss my little daily bonus lol got used to seeing it.

A very generous lottery BFG , should be enjoyed. 1 person a day getting 20,000 credits. I'd be happy with that.

(finally got my password back lol)
