Hello everyone,

two weeks ago we announced the winners of the Question Revival V contest. Following the announcement we have also initialized a verification process to ensure that all contest entries and contestants followed the site and contest rules. During the verification, we discovered several unusual things connected with the two entries that were announced as winners. This led us to take a closer look at the contest entries and an audit of the user accounts in our database and site logs. Unfortunately, an audit revealed that the TibiaQA rules have been violated.

Our findings have been forwarded to the fansite coordinator at CipSoft, who guided us on the next steps. We have also discussed the case internally with the TibiaQA staff. The final decision is that the two said entries are disqualified and that the remaining contestants are moved up. Here's an updated winner list.

  1. This answer to "How can we organize our backpack in a practical way?"
    Author: Rawex
    Prize: Pick one: Yellow Rose OR Omniscient Owl + Golden Warrior Trophy
  2. This answer to "In which achievements can we take a shortcut and save time?"
    Author: Arcai
    Prize: Remaining prize: Yellow Rose OR Omniscient Owl + Silver Warrior Trophy
  3. This answer to "What ARE the best EQs to farm HotA Pharaohs for 240 EK?"
    Author: Loqhakk
    Prize: Badge of Glory + Rune Emblem of choice + Bronze Warrior Trophy
  4. This answer to "Recommended Wheel of Destiny for ED 300-400?"
    Author: Mikhelle
    Prize:
    Elven Trophy + Rune Emblem of choice

We are sorry this took so long, but it was an unusual situation that required careful consideration and discussion.

@Winners - please send an e-mail to tibiaqa.adm@gmail.com with your character name, game world, and the choice of your rune emblem! Make sure to use the e-mail address assigned to your TibiaQA account.

Sad story. So it seems that the results of Winter Lottery 2023 were also affected.

It's strange that some people don't care about their reputation and cheat in contests. I suspect I know what the cheating was about. It's hard not to guess. Despite several successful entries in previous contests, the cheater today lost my respect irretrievably. I am very glad that TibiaQA team managed to detect this. Good job. My sincere congratulations to the real winners.

I'm not sure what's going on but really happy to be the 3rd place.

Congratulations to the well deserved winners. Please let this serve as a reminder that cheaters will be caught by the Omniscient Owl himself. Have a great weekend all.
