What is this?

Every X amount of weeks Steamgamers will be running a CS:GO weapon skins raffle which will run exclusively in our CS:GO servers. Players will be rewarded for spending time in our CS:GO servers by being given a currency called 'Raffle Points' for every minute they spend in the server. This can then be used to purchase tickets into the raffle (providing that a raffle is open) for a chance to win a list of prizes which can be seen either on the forums or in the in-game plugin menu.

How do I get raffle points?

Raffle points are obtained by playing in our CS:GO servers, regular players will gain 1 raffle point for every 1 minute spent in the server and subscribers will gain 3 raffle points for every 1 minute spent in the server as a thank you for continued support (both amounts are subject to change at anytime)

Which servers is the raffle plugin on?

Zombie Escape
Prison Break
MiniGames
Casual
Course Server
In-game commands

!raffle or /raffle or sm_raffle - Opens the raffle menu.
!tickets or /tickets or sm_tickets - Prints to chat ticket stats.
!raffletimeleft or /raffletimeleft or sm_raffletimeleft - Prints to chat the timeleft until the current raffle closes.

Can I transfer points or tickets to another steam account or friend?

No.

I have purchased tickets by accident can I get these refunded?

No.

When are the winners announced?

Once the raffle has closed the winners will be chosen at random using the database tables, you can win more than one prize if you have multiple tickets entered into the raffle.

How do I claim my prize?

Winners are announced on the forums HERE (http://www.steamgamers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=60932) and in the in-game menu, if you are a winner you will get a trade offer shortly after the winners are announced.

Do I get raffle points whilst in spectate?

Our stance on this has changes since the initial first launch, we want to reward those players who are actively playing on our servers. As of right now you do not get any points for being in spectate, you will only gain points when you are playing. Anyone caught trying to bypass the afk manager plugin will be at risk of having there points/tickets set wiped.

Is there a limit for how many tickets you can purchase for each raffle?

Right now it does, we have a new version of the plugin coming where you will only gain 1/3 of the points per minute. However we are going to have "spotlight" servers which you will get normal amounts in spec, the first server to get this plugin will be the casual server which opened yesterday 66.150.121.69:27016

That's great. But do subscribers only get 3 points/min right now on ZE? I remember it was 5. :/

Just to point out if you haven't already noticed, you do not get points for being in spectate. We felt that this was causing people to idle more rather than playing the game itself, we want to reward those players who are actively playing in the servers and not just idling.

Please do not try and bypass the afk manager or exploit other ways around this.
