Happy to report that we have a winner of the EVE1K PLEX giveaway contest. I honestly didn’t believe that it would be too difficult, but after a few days watching folks trying and not finding the code, I realized I probably needed to hand out a few hints. Congratulations to XtraCtrl on figuring out the clues and finding the number sequence. The final clue that keyed XtraCtrl in was: “What is Katia’s home system.” Here’s how she went about figuring it out.
Thank you so much for the PLEX! It was fun trying to work out the clues, as soon as I read the ‘about me’ section of your blog I googled Achura bloodlines and came to the conclusion it was Saisio III, I had all 3 versions of the planet open in photoshop looking for watermarks or hidden numbers lol, I even tried inspect element through Google Chrome. I eventually saw the information button and found the sequence and was greatly surprised to see nobody figured it out before me.
I will put this ISK towards learning and dying in PVP. You have made a newbie very happy.
The answer was Saisio III and could be found in a subfolder for that system in the PreDominion expansion images. You can follow this link to see. There were a couple of factors that went into choosing that system. Just as XtraCtrl figured out, it was part of Katia’s lore and it was the very first system that was explored. Like I said, I didn’t want it to be too difficult, the tricky part was checking out the subfolders as well, not just the current images for Saisio.
It was nice getting the positive feedback from many folks that enjoyed looking for the code as well as seeing the images themselves, which is what I was hoping for most of all. Thanks again to everyone that took the time to play. I’ll have to see about doing other contest along the way as I reach future milestones.
Lastly for this post, I wanted to drop a quick reminder to be sure and vote on this upcoming CSM9 election. If you’re one of those that think your voice isn’t heard – then it certainly isn’t if you don’t vote. Stop for a moment and think about it. If CCP believed that the CSM wasn’t worth it, then they would have done away with the council a long time ago. Just the very fact that they do continue to allow players a voice through an election process to form a council should be enough for everyone to realize just how important it is. It’s come a long way since CSM1 with many learning experiences and growth pains, but in the end, it’s been beneficial for both the players and CCP. By voting, YOU are empowering the players voices to be heard. So please, take a moment and vote. Here’s a list of the approved candidates. The elections will be soon.
Fly smart, fly safe!
