I'm talking about the companies action. I hear what you're saying. But the point is, that score is of legitimate concern over a 6 hour period.

And the company takes very, very unprofessional strides. Combined with a lack of logic over certain things there is a reason to be concerned.

And also, why would they need a "team of specialists" to check if their encryption method is decryptable?

@rayword45: They're already saying that they're speaking to their lawyer to see what must be done. Also, that 'the company is not valid' line looks like they're trying to add some levity to the situation when it's clear that English is not their first language, thus it fell a bit flat. I know you're deeply involved in this situation and I know you're upset, but the only thing I would advise is patience, which you have not shown during this situation at all.

I'm not showing patience for the obvious reasons first, but also because there are some pretty unprofessional situations.

And I repeat, why would they need specialists over their own damn encryption?

When one person is being unprofessional, the best thing you can possibly do for yourself is to be as composed, polite, and professional as you possibly can. Stooping to their level does not help your case at all, especially when you're at the mercy of the party you're accusing of being unprofessional.

That said, again, language barrier? It be that the person operating the Cypronia FB account doesn't exactly have access to that information personally. Who knows?

Something tells me they won't want to make more contests lol.

I kinda feel bad for them actually.... You know, they decided to give away 3 consoles to advertise their little game and everything got complicated.

If you're gonna run a contest, then run it with some organization.

One thing that strikes me as off (like, EXTREMELY off) is the profit margin here.

48 total ratings on the eShop.
Around 80-100 unique names on the leaderboards.

Assume Nintendo docks 0% off of every sale, that's still only $200. Yes, there are some who didn't submit, but DSiWare is one barren service. And with a price of about 300 Euros I last checked per Wii U not to mention shipping... Seriously what?

@Ray: You do know that the eshop only shows you the scores for your country, right?

Anyway, that's actually the reason I feel bad for them... This kind of thing can be very vexing for companies and the people who run them.

^The eShop, yes. Their scoreboards, no (which is what I based my math off of).

And that's what I've been trying to put my finger on. Why would they give away 3 consoles? Did they honestly expect a profit on DSiWare?

I honestly think you are getting way to cared away with this. A contest is suppose to be fun and you do it for the enjoyment of it. When you stress out over it and start getting aggravated at it like you are its time to quit.

I know what I'm doing damnit. Please don't tell me I'm getting too carried away.

Had I honestly believed he docked me out, I'd take it (happened to me before).
Had the company been more professional... Eh. I'm not going to immediately admit that I'd take it immediately.
But this is complete farce. I don't care what I come off as right now, the first thing that comes to mind is integrity.

That and there are definite suspicions over this whole thing. Quoth someone else who I discussed this with.

If human nature was like that, we'd all be passive people.

Well, actually, I sorta BS'ed that, but anyways, the point is, when you feel you've been cheated, what are you to do? Again, from the only other person to break 300000 aside from the winner, 400000 is basically illegitimate within 6 hours.

When you feel like you've been cheated out of something (of actual value), what do you do? Do you just scream "Eff this" and walk away?

Actually to be honest I enter contest for the fun of them if I win great if not thats fine too. I dont go and buy a Lottery ticket expecting to win and than get all upset claiming that I have been cheated. Its a contest someone has to win and someone has to lose. If its you thats the loser well thems the breaks there will be other contests. You congratulate the winner and move on. No sense in being a sore loser.

Chill. Out.

Again, we all understand that you're upset, rayword45, but we have nothing to do with what's going on, and the people who do have something to do with it are saying they're following up on things from their end. There is nothing you or we or anyone else can do at this time.

Don't get me wrong, I wanted a Wii U too (and I wanted YOU to win a Wii U too!), but I just don't feel right pestering the company about it.

I mean, what do I know about them and why should I just assume they're doing things the wrong way?

I bought a game, not a raffle ticket.

I was chill up until people got all up in my derriere actually. I just have some poor wording at times.

And @Tasuki I request that you actually look to see that I had my reasoning. If you had played the game and beaten level 35, you would understand. But since you don't, you make assumptions.

Well, I'm an assertive person, but that's not the point.

It was originally not about the company. They were doing everything what I view as right, asking for (admittedly not too helpful) evidence and at least trying to sound professional. Jump to now, everything fades and things seem off.

And really, a raffle ticket isn't a fair comparison. It's like taking a taxi when having a subway race to Coney Island.
