I've mentioned not long ago that I very rarely even look at the Cartel Market, but this past weekend a promotion on the launcher caught my eye: the "Grand Companion Pack", which was guaranteed to grant you a type of combat companion that's usually only available as a rare drop from a Cartel Pack. "Oh," I thought, "maybe I can finally get an Akk Dog. They're pretty cute."
I did eventually get one, but since it was still subject to some RNG, not before I ended up with a whole slew of other companions, including many duplicates. What to with all those droids and beasts? Well, I've been meaning to run another giveaway for a while, so why not use them for that? I feel like I should be giving back to the community anyway, considering that most of my Cartel Coins are generated by people clicking my referral link.
So here we go.
And the lucky winners, decided either by a lack of competition for their choice or by in-game roll, are:
Probe Droid - Ravanel (Republic)
Annihilator T4-1D - Aleura (Empire)
Personal Warbot - Xlaxi (Empire)
Exoboar - Rrogun (Republic)
ISO-5R - Soots (Republic)
QO-77 - Dibene (Empire)
TY-4N - Exiluminator (Empire)
Tuk'ata - A'rinka (Republic)
Nathema Beast - Sharack Snow (Republic)
H1-K1 - Aurrn (Republic)
You get to win one out of a total of ten different Cartel Market companions. Yes, you read that right, ten! Last I checked, each of these fellas went for at least a couple of million credits on the GTN. Here's the lot of them:
How to enter:
1. You need to have a character on The Red Eclipse. Sorry, but it's a practical limitation as that's simply where I've got these things lying around, and I'm not going to start server-transferring just to give stuff away.
2. Leave a comment in response to this post telling me which one of these ten companions you'd like to win and why. Example: "I'd love to win the ISO-5R because somehow it manages to look ridiculously cute for a killing machine!" You can only choose one, so choose wisely. Or, you know, you could hedge your bets and pick one that you think is unlikely to be picked by anyone else, therefore making you the default winner.
3. At the end of your comment, leave your character name and faction (of the char on TRE).
This is so I know where to send your chosen pet if you win! This doesn't have
to be your main if you're shy, just somewhere where I can mail the prize so that you will actually receive it.
The blog is set up to allow anonymous comments, so as long as you can
cope with CAPTCHAs you don't have to sign up with any third party
service to participate. However, should you still have
issues commenting on this post for some reason, feel free to drop me an e-mail with what your comment was supposed to be and I will post it for you.
Each of the ten companions will be randomly given away among the number of commenters who picked it as their favourite. You have until 6 am GMT on the 27th of March to enter, at which
point I'll close the comments for this post and announce the winner
later in the day.
Good luck and have fun!
