Hatsune Miku Concert Contest - what's the point?
What's the point of having a contest for tickets to a concert that almost no one can go to?
YOU can, just have to have flexible life (granted easier said then done). Airfares at the moment are preety low for the most part last time I checked (probably can get to TX for around $300).
IDK if it comes with a Funimation (Flower Mound HQ) Tour or not; else you only really need to stay 1 night.
Now, in terms of the General Admission tickets… yes, unless you are hardcore you may have a point. Standing in long line "hoping' for a good seat after a 3-4 hour plane ride isn't fun. But the box tickets are reaaaal nice....... :)
^This, or… it's targeted to people who live in Texas.
There are contests like this for a lot of events, they're not obligated to provide transit. e.g. I've seen Crunchyroll and ANN do contests for concerts in CA or NY (most recently Aoi Eir, I think), plus conventions that are anywhere.
It'd be really awkward if they did have to provide transit - that could mean anywhere from a subway ticket to a 10+ hour flight, depending where the winner lives (except they'd probably but a cap on it).
But if you can't go... don't enter ^_^; Simple.
But if you can't go… don't enter ; Simple.
…that's why the odds of winning are actually extremely high compared to most giveaways. From the rules... looks like 40 tickets (20 are "Grand Prize"; Funimation suite ones)... so even if 1000 people entered your odds aren't bad.
Of course, if I won, I only would want the "Funibooth" tickets. The difference is the other ones are just "general admission"; which you could buy yourself (for Houston), have to stand in line for hours for probably a standing seat. I already went to the one in Seattle, so no need to go /doom now.
Indeed, and if it were to come with some sort of Funimation HQ tour, well that could sweeten the Grand Prize offer a bit...
BTW, if I "win" the second place, and someone here wants the ticket; let me know, and I will send Funimation your way (assuming I can do that). First come, first served...
Me going for gold, or going home. All or nothing. Well, I made a small profit on the "Kentucky Derby" today (<$40) on a $6 Exacta bet, so alas I suppose "me feeling lucky". Hoping for the big one, the approx 1/2 billion Powerball tonight.
Indeed, it is more like "skills" though...
Update: Aaaa well, times us; looks like Me failed as usual, less there is some sort of delay. Wonder who won, in either case…
