Alternate GOTW Winner
Why is a name being posted on the Rewards Store winners list? These people are not the GOTW winners posted weekly by the mods. Are there 2 prizes or does this confirm that entering using alternate entries really doesn’t count and is only there to satisfy the legal requirement? We have asked numerous times in the past if anyone has ever won using alternate entries and each time a mod has said they would check and post back but never do.
Those are all very good questions, @velveteenrabbit7! Getting and waiting for answers can be frustrating. With the transition of the Arcade we are in the mist of constant updates and restructuring and sometimes getting an answer isn’t that easy. We apologize for the lack of response to your concerns regarding the alternate entries process. I can assure that I am working to get you an answer. We’ll update you once we know more.
I look forward to your reply.
@velveteenrabbit7, the name was inadvertently posted due to a technical error. Each week, GOTW alternate entries are combined with qualifying score entries and a winner is randomly selected from the combined list. Throughout the nearly three years we have offered the weekly GOTW prize, there have been winners from both entry types.
That’s not really an answer. There is a program used to select Rewards Store winners so of course an alternate entry will be selected along with the prizes. What weeks exactly did someone using an alternate entry win? It would be helpful when you post the winner If there was a symbol distinguishing whether the winner actually beat the score or used alternate entries. Until then I am not convinced anyone has ever won using alternate entries as I seriously doubt the rewards store is combined with the program tracking scores in the arcade.
