    Gail, can I please get a confirmation if an Australian player can get the tee shirt outfit from this promotion? Not angry, just would like to know if I should keep checking the app or give up on this?

    "sweepstakes and app promotion are limited to customers in the U.S."

    That's an easy no.

    Thank you. I had that impression from the comments so far, but it would still be good to hear from Anet conclusively. Until, and unless, they say otherwise, I'll have to assume this is a promotion I'm not eligible for.

  • @fabian.3269 said:
    @JustTrogdor.7892 HAHAHAHA wow. At least I can uninstall this kitten fest called "app" now.

    What a move. Changing the terms midway through the promotion. And it is REALLY unfair that NA players get a shot at the outfit, while the rest of the world does not (as always...).

    And ArenaNet should really open their mouth regarding this one. They even PROMOTED it inside the launcher (at least for EU residents, even in f*** german!). Don't tell me "it has always been that way"!

    It says US not NA. I live in Canada and cant enter it.

    I was really hoping to get the outfit..... :(

    That is one crazy development. Wow.

    Oh look. I have a signature now.

  • Anyone still hanging onto a Game and/or Shirt code by any chance? I managed to connect both my Twitter and FB sometime before the major lockup but have yet to receive anything. Will gladly pass on the favor if my codes ever do some in!

  • I need two Outfit codes, and one Heroic Edition code. My guildies never come on the forums, and live outside the US.
    No idea if I will ever get codes. Sigh. What a mess!

  • WOW and gw2 DEVS have removed the advert from the EU launcher... yet dont have any balls to inform their EU players.. As this clearly was advertised as available to EU from the previous add on the launcher, the add on KUNGFU tea, and the reassurance that we would get the codes... is that 3 lies to EU customers?

    Pretty sure they also removed the advert on the US launcher, one of my guildies can no longer see it in the US.

    My point is they are actively aware and doing things behind the scenes,so are fully aware of the issues but are not man enough to address their player base..

  • Also how is it right that some of the "lucky" ones that managed to "connect" are allowed to keep their EU dragon shirt, yet other are now not allowed ... how is that fair?

  • Okay I'm kind of mad now. Not seething, it's just a game and it's just pixels in that game but the blatant exclusion hurts. How did they think their player base would be happy about this? Nevermind the whole venture being a mess of the hottest variety. They never should have pledged to give away unlimited free accounts for 30 days. The seed of that idea is madness and the outcome should have been obvious.

  • @Kodiak.4213 said:
    Whoa folks, put the pitchforks down and let's wait for a statement from ANET. I'm sure they will find a way to reconcile, just give them a chance to explain the situation from their end. There was obvious miscommunication between the two companies, give them a chance to sort it out.

    Looks like they have sorted it, gz US!
    They have already rectified it without a statement, so thats nice!

  • kitten sake ANet!
    kitten. I spent days trying to get this, and finally did, only to be screwed over....

    It wasn't originally limited to the US.

    It takes time to craft an official response, plus it's the end of the day, so probably not until tomorrow at the earliest.

  • @Raizel.8175 said:
    Still no statement from ANet about if you can use one key for an alt-account. >:

    That is my thought too. I bought a second account 2 years ago. So it may be a pain to get the shirt on it too.

  • ReV.6097ReV.6097 Member ✭✭✭

    Wow...
    They must have made this promo up before they had their morning coffee..
    It is so backwards...
    I could have understood if there was a different promotion APP, using the same rewards for the EU server users as the Kung Fu app for US, but.... there isn't.
    This is bad for their name sake...
    Half their players aren't in the US, so... you've practically told us to go Fkitten ourselves.

    @Magnus Godrik.5841 said:
    So the app finally works and u can see the rewards. Unfortunately no shirt code. Was there a limited amount of codes or is the app that bad.

    What can you see?

    When I got it there were just 2 GW2 rewards listed on the Social Rewards tab - one for the Deluxe Edition where you had to take a picture of a drink and one for both of the in-game items together.

    Clicking the second one eventually, after several attempts, gave me a message in the Profile section with both codes in the same message, the Heroic Edition code at the top of the message body and the Dragon t-shirt code near the bottom.

    The second one doesnt show

  • @Vyrulisse.1246 said:
    Honestly at this point like I said earlier they should just mail the outfits to everyone. At least that much damage control would be nice especially for EU players who are suddenly left out which just stinks.

    It's not even just EU players. Lots of people on NA servers are Oceanic players, who are also left out.

    They have many franchise and many part time employees. You got to forgive those employee not keeping up to date with the promotional thing. If you want to participate in the daily sweepstake all you need to do is buy the drink called COCOA CREAM WOW. The instructions is in the website and ap.. separate to the shop. https://www.kungfutea.com/blog/2018/8/31/guildwars2sweepstakes

    Having worked in retail I can tell you it may not even be a matter of the employees not keeping up to date - they may have never had an opportunity to find out.

    2 of the shops I worked for had websites which ran their own promotions and sales and we were never told about them, even if it involved buying something in store. As far as the company was concerned if it was online it didn't involve us - we didn't need to know why the customer was buying a particular product or what they did with it afterwards and the fact that some people would literally yell at us for not being able to walk them through the process was apparently our problem.

    I'm not in retail but I can understand how it works. It's common sense but many ppl aren't as nice when come to think they are entitle to have something whether they need to spend money on buying or even if it's free.

    Strange thought. I have been playing Gw since the second month that GW1 launched. How is it that bad guys can get an overwhelming set of codes and I can not get a free shirt?

    I read this just before the spelling correction, and my brain pulled the "r" from "shirt" to fix "fee". However, that created a new problem. I must be tired.

    I'm glad I gave up early... I guess quitters win sometimes!

    That's ridiculous... I've been playing guild wars since GW1, I was there when prophecies came out, I even own collector's edition of nightfall. i've a combined total of 5000 hours of playing GW1 and GW2. This is like a big "i don't give a fudge about you" to a lot of us guys that supported arenanet since the beginning. Especially EU players. EU is the biggest chunk of GW's playerbase. There are much more EU players than US players. This is discrimination. I've no respect for arenanet anymore.

  • Talindra.4958Talindra.4958 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I had five codes sent to me. And shared them with two players whom I talked to in gw2 fb social media sites and one in game friend who can't speak much English (he truly deserve the code since he plays more than 10 hours everyday) I gave one code to my daughter account. One code to a stranger who has been playing on a free to play account.

    Hello, I have a guildmate who happens to have an extra outfit code, am I in danger of getting banned if I use it? I'm not from US btw.

    No.... You don't need to be in NA to get the outfit. I live in Australia and I got the outfit and heroic edition codes via kft ap.
    The reward currently has been disabled due to issues they need to resolve first.. PLEASE be patience let them fix it and they will announce again once the ap is working properly.

    You do now. They changed it to say that only people from the US can get it. It's in the previous page.

  • Dear Anet, good luck fixing this mess for your non-US playerbase (wich probably is bigger than your US player base)

    The first few days the app promotion (not the sweepstakes promo) was open to everybody, but now they've gone ahead and changed it, saying that it was only ever intended to be available for the US.

    Now what will happen to everyone not in the US who are locked out of the rewards when there have been many outside of the US who managed to redeem it before this change?

  • I am trying to keep up here, but 20 pages deep and other life obligations. I downloaded the app, took picture and put the hashtag. According to the app I was entered into the contest drawing.

    Where in the app do I get the DLC code?

    Did they stop giving these out?

    Some people are getting the codes and others are not?

    I have no idea what is going on right now....

    Well that was for the deluxe edition drawing mate not everyone wins those, there were another promotion that not every one saw for a outfit and heroic edition.
    Required no picture or purchase of drink to get, was available to all untill Kung fu tea got a o kitten alot of people are trying to login to our app from all over the world pull the breaks moment.
    Restricted it to usa only 4-5 days in to said promotion and now its still down for everyone.

    Edit
    Sounds like you entered the wrong promotion without visiting and buying a drink to get a chance for a deluxe edition and uploading a random picture with the hashtag or am I wrong?

    There are 2 promotions? Thought there was only one, then how do I enter the other promotion?

    There is actually 2 stores in the state I live closet one was 30 mins away pending traffic. Was I suppose to keep the receipt or something?

    Hey there,

    We are aware of some concerns about the current promotion. We do understand your concerns and apologize for any inconvenience. I'll post with more information as soon as we have it.

    So....time to start posting with more information after you suddenly exclude everyone outside of the U.S.

  • I still do not know anything about this "Kungfu" thing, my 1st thought was Arenet is offering a tea party :p
