This is messed up Whats the deal here?

  • 3

I am a member over level 30 and tried to get a key for Black Desert Online - Lauren Family Gift Box  but it says all out so I asked my friend that is a lower level and he said there was keys avaiable and he got one. So whats the deal here I thought being a master level was suppose to have priority first on keys. How is it we given less of a opportunity then the lower levels. As you can see this is what I get when I go to the page. https://prnt.sc/uh66oo and this is his https://prnt.sc/uh66x6.

Are you and your friends in both in North America?  Sometimes there's different key pools set aside for regions (EU or NA) and one runs out before the other (I assume this is done to try to prevent a region from missing out on a giveaway whilst they sleep).


Being master gives you priority for "Master Only giveaways" or "Level 25 Giveaways".

And I mean Priority as in "You reached that level or you passed that level, You can claim a key". If one person is Level 25, and you are Master; The level 25 account can still grab the last key and you are out of luck.

This giveaway is available to anyone with Level 2 accounts and up.

I just claimed a fresh key and I'm in the states. Get it fast right now 8000 something left.

Certain giveaways are only available in specific regions. If you are not in that region, the giveaway will show "all out of keys" 


The whole master key pools is a joke. There is no priority, just a much smaller pool of keys set aside for each master level which dry up even faster. The higher you get, the less likely you are to get anything.  It's "normal" for there to be no keys left for master levels yet still thousands for low levels. There's no logic behind this.
Search the threads, this has been discussed and complained about for years since this came into effect, but nothing will change as AA don"t give a crap. You are better off at level 30 non master and staying there as the higher you get, the less likely you are to get anything. 
 


There are too many higher ranks than keys. For example 100 keys and 1.000 users.

I'll send you mine. Not sure if it was used by a friend so don't be sad it it doesn't work :/

I thouht you also have access to the lower ones. Looks like this system is even worse than I thought.


You may have only 200 keys for the master giveaway, but if you had a chance to snag a key, then it pays off to have ranked up first, and then grab the key in time. Yeah the bottom tier ranks have had alot of giveaways with 8000+ keys. But then again, those giveaways are mostly publisher giveaways. I am sure I can find the same Black Desert Online giveaway from games.steelseries.com and grab the keys there. I don't need to sign up for alienware to grab the key.

There was a situation that I saw a giveaway here for an indie game that required you to have Lvl 25 account, but on Steel Series, that same indie game giveaway was free for anyone up for grabs. Subscribe to several sources like IGN giveaways, PCGAMER giveaways, Steel Series Giveaways, and chances are there is more than one place to grab that same key. That's only if the same alienware giveaways are also found on those sites.

 

But all im saying is....it's still worth ranking up on here. Because if you see the giveaway available, you already crossed the first step by ranking up. Now just grab the key before its all gone.

Alienware should have guidelines for publishers and indie game devs with how many keys they need to have for a giveaway to even begin with. So that each tier has a fair amount of keys. Instead of 200 or 1000 keys for this master giveaway, and 10,000 keys for the spongebob giveaway for lower tiers. Have 2000-3000 or 5000 keys minimum for master and lower tier ranks as a requirement. 


And also, I only participated in 2 master giveaways so far. I have never seen an interstellar rank giveaway. And most other key grabs only required you to be level 15 or level 25+
