  1. Eligibility – the contest is open to any player with a valid user account within Star Trek Online.  Employees of Cryptic Studios and others associated with the promotion of this contest are not eligible.
  2. Sponsor – the contest is sponsored by lootcritter.com (this domain) and @ddesjardins.

  7. Winner Notification – Prize winners will be notified in the form of a blog post on this website, and will be contacted in-game for prize hand delivery.  Given that I work normal business hours, I can only guarantee delivery in the evenings or on the weekends.  I will NOT MAIL rewards, and an in-game screenshot is required showing delivery.

  8. Prizes
    1. First Prize, an Annorax Science Dreqadnought + 1500 Zen
    2. Second Price, a Jem’Hadar Strikeship +1000 Zen
    3. 900 Lobi value for a ship of your choice from the Lobi store.  Note: I will purchase it on your behalf, and provide it to you in game.  Once selected, it cannot be exchanged.
  9. General Conditions – this is usually the place where I use language to weasel out of the contest in the event of a tragedy, or the game is unavailable for any reason.  As long as STO is online, you’ll get the prizes.  Also – no cash value either in real money or game currency is being offered.
  10. Release and Limitation of Liability – there is no guarantee that by using these ships in normal gameplay will your DPS improve, or will they make you appear to be cooler than you truly are.  If the acquisition of rewards increases your heart rate to an unacceptable level resulting in personal harm, please forward your complaint to Starfleet Command.
  11. Disputes – if you dispute any of these terms, I’ll feel bad and pretty much ignore your complaints with a smile.
  12. Privacy – Your in-game handle is your business. While we will take all reasonable efforts to protect the lists (we will not use them to remarket to you), we cannot be responsible for public entries on the interwebs.
