I guess you have found some way to work around the player since I don't see how anyone could watch these episodes all the way through 200+ times since the contest was announced just a few days ago! 216 plays would take like 3 days at 24 minutes per episode, or more. I just can't devote the computer time to constantly running "Giant Killing". Three months membership and a jersey could be bought with a fraction of what I could make in an hour, so it is just not worth it to me. (though I am interested in how people are getting around the system to get the winning badges. Very clever! )

I have a feeling going through the back door is too easy for these "badge" games. They should structure the games differently so they would be more fair...

My IT guy tells me there are various ways this thing could be rigged by various means.

The game skews to premium members as well, since the duration of each video would be increased due to the additional time involved running the advertisements. Premiums would get more plays over time over the course of days of continual play, even if there isn't some trick being used.

1) You don't know SH*T and you're terribly misinformed.
2) I don't know how many badge games like this you've played before, but anyone who is observant enough can figure out an efficient way to get more badges in a shorter amount of time. Everything I did were within the parameters of what the system will let me. Short of hacking the system, there's no other way to cheat. How dare you accuse me of cheating! Just because you can't imagine how I did it doesn't mean it's impossible. You just lack imagination. You don't have to accuse people of cheating just because you can't get the badges you need.

I said what I said to say how difficult the contest is and is and that getting the goal badges is not easy.

Basically, you are saying you have found a "fix" to get more badges. (in boldface above.) Fine. You win.

Even if you did play it straight, tell me how you figure this is fair to non-premium members who have to sit through all the advertisements? The mathematics just don't work out.

There is no fix! Having a fix implies I do something else in other than playing the episodes. I play the episodes just like everyone else.

And as far as on-premium members, they can easily do the same thing I'm doing too. It will just take them la little longer to do it because of the ads, but when they do it it will still mean more episodes to play. Look, I'm not the only one in this board who's ever figured this out. If you ever have the time to sit through pages of posts go to this forum http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-605207/win-a-free-1-year-membership-with-naruto/ . Someone actually posted how to do it. i could tell you right now, but you already pissed me off.

You're just bitter you haven't figured it out.

I'm not anti auto play button but it screwed this competition. Maybe that was the point for this to get giant killing more views..... I sure hope it wasn't so...

Yeah, if they can, the next contest it should be set up (and announced in advance) that episodes launched by autoplay won't count.
