BrightStar Studios ApS arranges competitions to please our players and communities. Prizes in the competitions may differ in value depending on several factors. Bright Star Studios ApS does not give any guarantees for market values of the prizes and values may differ over time.
The land plots will be delivered to the winner's crypto wallet. The graphical assets will be delivered over email or Discord contact. The Discord unique roles will be delivered on the Discord server. The Shauk hoodie will be delivered by delivering it to the given address. The winner must accept the prize(s) by 6th November 2023. Otherwise, the assigned prices will be reassigned to the next winner in line.
The prize cannot be exchanged for cash.
The Competition winner(s)
There will be 19 winners in this competition.
HOWEVER you can only win land allocation once in this particular competition, so the 5 random winners from the chosen region cannot also be winners from the Top 3 Leaderboard land allocation - and if they are - they will be redrawn.
SIMILARLY in the case of duplicate appearances of unique usernames on the Top 10 Leaderboard the prize will be awarded to the next unique username in line to win it. Meaning that in the case of having the same unique username on top 2 and top 3 Leaderboard, the top 3 prize will now go to the top 4 on the leaderboard.
Note that some of these winners might be the same person, for example Top 1 Global Leaderboard could be the same winner as the Top 1 of a certain weapon category, HOWEVER, the 5 randomly drawn regional winners CANNOT be among the Top 3 of the Global Leaderboard (having already won allocated land plots), but the rest are eligible since their prizes did not include land plots.
The winners will be picked on 30th October 2023 and contacted immediately hereafter via email registered on Ember Sword's website.
The winner's username, Discord tag, and earned price(s) will be announced on the Ember Sword Discord server.
Winners may be asked to give information or documentation to receive their prize, e.g. proof that they are over 18 years old at the time of registration for the competition and/or that they are not residing in a geographical restricted Territory. This also includes a KYC - Know Your Customer - check if you are winning land plots. The documentation and required information must be provided within 7 days after the winner is notified via email. If the winner fails to submit valid and appropriate information or documentation at Bright Star Studios ApS’ discretion, the prize will be forfeited and instead awarded to another winner.
