some of u all or either stupid, more stupid or just plain stupid.

I lost, i accept that so u all should just accept that as well. What is the point in crunchyroll rigging a contest.What would they gain from that.My god what a bunch of stupid children. Yes they should have been more specific in saying that thye FIRST TEN TO COLLECT BADGES are going to win.Some of us are actually in college, school, moms , dads, working, and we spent alot of time watching videos.Some of us dont give a sh*t about of life, that group better get some help, talk to god, start listening to their parents and get back on the right track.

Oh by the way, the Naruto specific episode was available to non members as well, to clear that up.I deleted my badges out of anger, but i wish i had not done it,lol. Thats a lesson for u all kids,lol.

If i had new from a start, it was the first ten, i maybe would of done other cooler things with my life, instead of watching naruto for 2 and a 1/2 months.But, god crunchyroll, start a contest on time and finish on time, my god.

And congrats to the first 10, u won i lost, so congrats again. I will take my anger somewhere lese now,lol.

Simple, hits. THAT'S what they gain from it. The non-premium members got commercials which is advertising, which = $$$.

I think people have a right to be a bit PO'd at this whole deal. When you put in the effort thinking you have a shot at something, when it was an IMPOSSIBLE goal to hit from the start, kinda stings. CR should've been more clear in their rules, and not make things like badges so damn hard to aquire. When you top 300 views of one single episode to just get ONE version of a badge, that reaaaaally sucks!

Lesson learned, I will not do their contests in the future, as I'm sure many will not as well.

Although having a anime membership, I do have to agree that they should have made the rules more clear, so people that didn't have a membership wouldn't have wasted their time. It would have been obvious that Anime members would only win. So that sucks for who ever tried.

Also on other news I noticed in the latest preview that the Animators made a mistake on Pains face so I put that as my Profile Image

Wow Crunchyroll likes screwing people over. The rules clearly stated that it was a random drawing. Therefore, everyone should have had the same opportunity to win. Picking the first ten people is such a cop out. Non paid members were already at a DISADVANTAGE when we can only gather BOLD badges a week later. Extending the contest even longer is probably what upsets most people too since your setting up people with false hopes. I agree with most people here is that YOU should have clearly defined the rules. This is why I am not signing up for a membership. The anime here that is for the spring line up sucks. Why would I waste my money when I can go to other websites for free. Cruncyroll you better offer more incentives and contests for people who are non-members. Why would you have more contests for paid members. You already won them over. You need to win over people who are non-paid members.

jpax44 Not really clear on this Ilamaben. I thought the episode with the episode-specific Naruto badge was released 1 week later its premier date for non premium members. If that's so then the regular members could've never made it in the top 10. (Oh and your avatar makes me miss Gin Tama even more)

the rules could've definitely been clearer, contest executed and planned better. The frustration is understandable. I'll keep my membership because I believe that it supports the anime industry which i totally love. This top 10 thing is a bit of a let down.



PhiloSiphy
Let's see llamaben. I think you mean it was available to everyone WITH A PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP. Not to mention that your username has a star icon by it that only premium members are allowed to have. So there goes your defense and my respect. Just because you managed to win something out of it doesn't mean what happened makes it any more right.

Just admit it and say that crunchyroll rigged the contest because any idiot can tell when people are being dirty.


Yes, the rules could of been clearer, but I'm 100% sure it was available to everyone. It was available on the first episode of a double episode, where the first was available but the second was not.

Same date for pre-release as public release...

Also, if you go back and check comments, the second person to post that they finished was a free member.

Will everyone PLEASE STOP COMPLAINING. The final two badges were available for everyone. So MEMBERS AND NON-MEMBERS HAD AN EQUAL CHANCE TO BE WINNERS that week. In fact the second person to post they collected all the badges on the Naruto specific episode was a non-member! So no more whining.

Though I am sympathetic as I kinda do get how it was a little messed up because a lot of people would've definitley stayed awake in the early hours just so they could win but by extending the contest and giving the impression that there would be a draw made most people kick back and relax thinking they had time to collect and a chance to win.

Actually as I look back the third person that finished was a non-member, well the third to post at any rate. I believe the non-members' name was makehomersomethingsomething, the fourth was you, and the second was Soultpp. Although that can just be by posts, there could have been other winners that didn't post.

Thanks for clarifying. I wouldn't have known if it was available for non premium members anyway since I'm a paid member. I don't know about the rest of you but I'm convinced now since a non premium member got it early.

So, if it is true and the episode with the last exclusive badges was available for everybody from the start, I wonder why Crunchyroll doesnt want to officially announce the winners!?!?!

When everybody here will see that also non-premium members are among the winners, everything will be allright!

But I think there will be a majority of premium members among the winners, if not all of them will be premium members... since they said that they will not announce the winners officially and that they will contact the winners privately, we will never known if this contest was fair.

Im sooo glad I killed only two days, watching the episodes only because I wanted to get the badges of my fav characters... fufu

My mistake if it was the wrong number. And although that is by posts, there is no reason someone wouldn't of posted (unless they left episodes running and came back to see they had finished). That said, its unlikely that theres more than acouple of those.

The real question here is how the first people are counted. I have absolutely no idea on the method, but its possible that they judge it on the time that you got the badge that completes your 80. If thats true, its possible that if a person deleted their original final badge (after acquiring duplicates) may not win even if they completed it first. Oh well, I guess we'll have to wait and see.
