Is anyone else winning a lot less recently? All of a sudden, it seems like the number of entries in any single giveaway has doubled or tripled. There use to be a decent number of giveaways with less than 200 entries. Now, I can barely find any with less than 400 entries. And I am level 4, too. In the past couple of weeks, has the site gotten a lot more popular? Or has a lot more people leveled up? Maybe there are bots putting in entries? I am not sure. It is just odd. I'm curious if anyone else is noticing the same thing. Maybe the site has become a lot more popular? I just find it odd that a level 4+ giveaway will now generate over 100 entries in the span of a half hour. In the past, this barely ever happened. Just curious if anyone else noticed the same thing...

Define recently. I win like 1 game ever 6-12 months for a few tears now.
I'm level 8 and i rarely win, it's a matter of being lucky i guess
Strange, as level 8 you should had more chances to win. But then i remember, on level 3 got more luck, than on level 4.
Don't have the statistics available but I would wager that number of higher level giveaways is quite low. Group/whitelist giveaways affect likely more, though there can be some correlation of high level and getting entry to group/whitelist giveaways.
if recently are like 4-5 years.. yeah i'm winning less "lately"
in fact i don't won any giveaway just after i got a conversation with a moderator and my opinion don't fit his opinion about a thing i don't even remember (was in a tipical random post)
so i assume he mess up my account to don't being able to win anything, because from win 1-2 games every 1-2 months to win 0 in 5 years it's a bit suspicious.
maybe some day i will try an experiment with 5 people to see if i'm really "bugged" or not.
I haven't been winning much, every giveaway I have won has had < 100 entries. I do think the site is getting more popular and I wouldn't be surprised if bots were flooding the giveaways more.
Yeah, I've entered ALL the giveaways that aren't ignored or already owned, which is more than I have points for. And I've been on this site like stink on **** and it's been surprisingly no wins for a while, I usually get at least one a week or so with my level of activity. Guess I need to find more groups but I'm already using a ton of time being in almost none. Haven't been making AS many giveaways lately but I'm still over 1.0 ratio of given to gotten. Just been hoping the site is waiting to give me something real good ;)
Nah, not really. I have been constantly quite unlucky, so nothing has changed for me. :)
I kinda feel bad for the people who say they win less nowadays and yet, have way more wins under their belts than I have. Poor things. Gotta feed the backlog. /s
I fixed the issue for you now, OP. Refresh (by hitting F5 while on the main giveaway page) and try again.
Basically what I did is that I ratio adjusted your probability formula, your win/lose ratio was off the base margin by 0,004 which didn't work well with the median entry algorithm but the curve is now reprogrammed to go upward in the 90° so things should be fine
Thanks. I learn something new everyday.
Just to be safe – xarabas was just joking, none of that is true or possible.
Such little fixes will not be enough for the one 5 above your comment :-D
I haven't won anything in 1.5 years so maybe
i win you with around 5 years of don't win.
Ok you win the unlucky contest. My case might be just because I don't really enter many giveaways (maybe like 3 a day at most). I'm pretty sure you'll eventually win a giveaway, probably
well honestly the last 3 years i just entered a few xD waste of time, in the time it takes to win something here i can win more money working and buying myself 3 or 5 full AAA games.
While you weren't looking, I entered every giveaway that you entered and won every game that you wanted to win.
I seem to average once about every 6-8 months? But I don't enter a ton of things, just the items I would really want to play.
