Hi people,
I've never been too active in forums here on steamgifts neither for creating giveaways. My comments are mostly related to thank people who made GA's I won. You can check my stats by yourself finding the giveaways I entered, the ones I won, the ones I sent, comments and so on. I know, many people jundge a person from his stats and I don't complain about it. Feel free to blacklist me if you are able to rate a person from his profile. I'm not here to gain your favors.

Coming to us...
I want your "help" by writing down a game you would like to recive if you will be eventually picked at the end of.. my degree.
I have collected 15 out of 120 ECTs so far, and i'm planning to select the winner the day after my graduation (unfortunately unknown).

The rules are simple:

  • 1 entry each
  • You can write down the game (possibly steam) you would like to recive starting from now to the day before my graduation
  • If you have already selected the game you would like to win if selected, you can change it until the day before my graduation

Updates

15/09/2020: The thread has been created (15/120 ECTs)

Frequently Asked Questions

1) Is this giveaway related to your thesis? (thank you Filipi for first asking)

  • Short answer: NO. This is just an idea jumped in my mind to keep me up during my last "scholastic" months of my life.

2) Why are you doing this? (thank you PeterShepard for first asking)

  • Basically the graduation day is one of the most important days in our life (I guess?)...I already have a bachelor but I think that it isn't the same thing as a master degree. In few words I would like to share my happines with someone of you, who followed in some way my journey

3) What kind of help do you need? (thank you Bo0Mz for first asking)

  • I don't need any "material" help for my journey neither for exames or (future) thesis. I just want you to write down the game of your dreams and have a free chance to win it

4) What are your plans? What are you majoring in? (thank Neomixer for first asking)

  • I'm attending a master degree in finance

5) When's your graduation? (thank you Filipi again for first asking)

  • This is the point of the "game". My graduation date is potentially unknown (even by myself). I obviusly want to graduate as soon as possible but you have to consider this is a long term event (I would belive early 2022 is more than likely)

6) What does ECT stand for? (thank you PossiblePsycho for first asking)

  • ECTs stands for "European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System" which express the weight of each exam in the degree. For our purpose you can see them as the "progress" of my journey

7) How is going your journey?

  • Well, I will update this thread as soon as I increase my ECTs. The next increase is likely to be on January 2021.

8) Can I wait for a closer day to choose my pick?

  • Of course, but keep in mind that, since the journey is expected to take some time, you can also change your choice till the day before my graduation

9) Do you plan on going for a doctorate? (thank you RaisinCookiesAreGood for first asking)

  • Even if I enjoy to help students, I think that the journey would be too long for me...and after years of studying I feel a bit tired. I would like to apply what I've studied and find a quite place to work

P.s: I thank everyone who helps me in formatting text or make this thread cuter. Every suggestion is welcome.

Just kidding. I have it, and it’s not that good. Baldur’s Gate 3
FYI if you haven’t already played it, Offworld Trading Company is the greatest finance-related game available right now.

Side note: for several years I had a job designing new financial products. Barely used any of what I learned during my Master’s. You’ll never use 90% of what you’re learning now, and 90% of what you’ll do in the real world is nothing you can learn in school.

Mi manca solo la tesi e diciamo che, essendo una triennale in Scienze dell'educazione, a parte la sbatta per iniziare, scrivere una 40ina di pagine non è una cosa che mi stressi poi troppo, il più è stato iniziare a scrivere...salvo benestare del relatore che non si fa sentire da maggio, ecco :D

Bhe guarda che anche per la mia triennale è stata molto soft :D Ora sto sputando sangue per la magistrale...devo solo ingranare...Come ho trascritto non nego che dovrei essere a 60 CFU ora come ora...ma con calma e pazienza si fa tutto no? :D

I find it pretty interesting that you use the acronym ECT. In Poland I've always only seen "ECTS" and according to Wikipedia that's the most popular way of calling it in most countries 🤔

I'm actually right in the middle of writing an application to approve my master thesis subject (in the field of Computer Science) that I'm going to work on over the starting academic year. Good luck on your thesis from a fellow student! :)

The game I choose is NieR:Automata

Yeah, here in Italy they are called "CFU" but since the master is delivered in english and we have many international students we use ECTs too. I also see the weight of each ECTs is the same as in Poland! :D

Wish you good luck for your one buddy! :)

My choice for a game would be Evenicle.

What bothers me though is the fact that the last option exists, and what bothers me more is that 11 people have picked it.
Why???

Well, the poll is one of the first things I've created in this thread. I wanted to be somehow ironic..To be honest (even if I have to admit I'm quite touchy) I don't care so much about it and I take it as "a part of the game". :)
Or better, let's see the huge number of people who wanted to support my journey! I didn't expect so much audience neither such partecipation...and what about all the beautiful words in above comments? I'm getting proud of what I've created! :D

Good luck with graduating, school is tough these days, especially with the virus. Make sure you're getting enough water, sleep and rest. And stay safe.

Much respect for pursuing further education. As someone who stopped after 4 years, I know how tiring the journey is.
