The

LOLcust Giveaway

Posted Image

(Insert Woo Sound File here)










I will be gifting 25 (and maybe more) Locust-3V, which is a mech that is exclusive as of now in the Gift Store. I will be buying these little insects, and giving them to you, for free. So get over here, put down a post to enter and wait for about 3 weeks to see results. (This is not a troll, this is real, so be happy for a free mechbay and some c-bills, I know some of you need it :) )

Start: May 9th, 2015 at 10:00 AM PST
End: May 30th 21th, 2015 at 10:00 AM PST

Winners: To Be Announced
How to enter if you haven't read the intro:
Just Post! This ain't complicated, so don't be distracted that you might not win, there's going to be a lot of those things coming soon. ;)

RULES:
Accounts made after this thread are not valid.

You must make a post before the 26th of May.
You can only win once.
Only your first post will be valid, any additional posts will not count.
You Must make a post before May 21st.

To be Honest, when I was thinking about this idea, it was not the best idea, but you know what? Everyone loves free mechbays, I know there's people who love the Locust, why not make a giveaway?

Donations:
10 11 LoLcusts from MoonUnitBeta. Awesome!!!
Another 10 From Peter2K. More Awesome!!!
Vandul With 10 more to the giveaway. Epic!!!
ilikerice With 5 and a Cataphract OXP. THE INTENSITY!!!
Total Amount of LoLcusts to give away: 61 and a Lone Cata :)

EDIT:So yes, Time to enter has been cut down, 4 days at most so that we don't have to wait very long. Also Some of you are asking why I did this so early. At the time I did not think that I would have the time now to start the giveaway today, but now that I am, I've shaved off time from the end, so that in 2 weeks from now people can get their lolcust. Thank you for understanding, and good luck! :)

2nd EDIT: Cut down another 3 days, don't you just love it when you know when it will be here faster? :)

How the winners are announced: Like MoonUnitBeta, I will gather up all the participant's names, and put them into a bowl, box, etc, then begin drawing names. Once the winners have been announced, they will receive a code that they can redeem here.

Idea Inspired by Moonunitbeta, :)

Locusts are cute! And any pilot who can carry in a locust is a god.

This is the last missing Locust for me, and I have no idea what kind of build I'd use for it. XL190, ERLL and 2MGs, I guess? 2MPL and 2MG alone seems like it won't be worth it without cooldown quirk.

Maybe strap an ER PPC on it, for the lulz?

Only a mech as mighty as the Locust could effectively channel the spirit of Sanic and going fast.

Here's my post. I want a free Locust Mechbay!

Also, because I'm following your instructions as literally as possible:
This ain't complicated, so don't be distracted that you might not win, there's going to be a lot of those things coming soon. :)
