Who is Furry and Orange and has Pirate101 Beta Keys??

Who’s furry and orange and has a bunch of Pirate101 Closed Beta keys?

Ditto's Evil Twin

Bad Ditto based on Pyromnacer Morganthe, painted by Alex the Sorcerer

This guy – and he’s not going to give them up without a fight! Every day this week, Monday through Friday, Ditto’s evil double is going to ask a riddle – everyone who answers the riddle correctly will have a chance at winning a Pirate101 beta code! Five days, five codes each day, for a total of 25 chances to win a code for this exciting new beta!!

A new riddle will be posted here each day, and winners will be chosen the following day before the next riddle is posted. All winners will be notified by email and sent their codes as well as instructions on how to redeem them.

To enter, send your answer to dittocontest@gmail.com with a subject of ‘Pirate101 Riddle’ – all correct answers will be entered for that day’s drawing. One email per day, please – let’s play fair.

Update- Please don’t answer the riddles in the comments below – Bad Ditto doesn’t like that!

Day 1 Riddle
What goes around your ship and in your ship but never touches your ship?

ANSWER:  The Sun.  I had a lot of entries who said ‘Wind/Air’ – it’s a good guess, but air and wind obviously touch the ship – that’s how they sail, wind power!  Don’t worry, still four more chances to win!!

Day 2 Riddle

What belongs to you but others use it more than you do?

Answer:  Your Name.   Congrats to the winners – Chase Lionhammer, Stephanie Frostwielder, Ian StormStaff, Kian, and Mason Swiftblade!

Day 3 Riddle

What is it that you will break even when you name it?

Answer:  Silence   Congrats to today’s winners – Dustin S, Autumn FairyDust, Alex M, Matthew LifeFlame, Sean Duskhorn

Day 4 Riddle

What is it the more you take away the larger it becomes?

Answer:  A hole – For burying your treasure!!  Congratulations Haley Dawn, Kyle TitanFlame, Dustin Duskwhisper, Morgrim Nightbringer, and Justin Shadowthief

Day 5 Riddle

When someone does not know what it is, then it is something; but when someone knows what it is, then it is nothing.

Answer: A Riddle (Also accepted – a secret)  – Congratulations to the final winners – Valdus Shadowstalker, Sloan Shard, Francine, Cody, and Scarlet Owl

Thank you to everyone who played, and thanks for all the support and great feedback!

The average number of correct answers was 286 per day, with Day 4 having the highest number of correct answers, and day 1 having the fewest.

To all the winners, congratulations ad have fun – please remember that the NDA is still in place, so don’t post screenshots or other information about the game.

Don’t worry if you weren’t a winner – I’m sure there will plenty more opportunities to get into the Pirate101 beta, and before you know it, the game will be out for everyone to enjoy!
Thanks again, See you in The Spiral!!
Ditto P. Monster

    • Eric

      Wait am I supposed to be putting my wizard name in the email too or just the answer?

      August 16, 2012 at 4:38 pm

      • Don’t worry, just your answer is fine. This is a Pirate 101 contest, so some people entering might not have Wizard names…

        August 16, 2012 at 4:49 pm

    • Jotan

      where do we put our name when we send the answer

      August 17, 2012 at 9:37 pm

      • Anywhere you want.

    i read on the pirate 101 website that they only gave out beta keys to that AMD game thingy website so im kinda suspicios so can someone answer?

    August 13, 2012 at 8:33 pm

    • If you go to the Pirate 101 website you’ll see a lot more sites that are running beta contests. It’s a promotion that started this week. It’s smart for you to ask though – play safe!

    One question, is it ok to post the answer in the subject section of the email?
    Also, when do you give us the keys? The same day we answer or the next.

    August 14, 2012 at 8:14 pm

    • Please post your answer in the body of the email, thanks.

    Excuse me, but I know I had the correct answer, but I had to give it by 4:00 P.M. EST, so I guess you give it to those who first entered…. What I am trying to say is that it really isn’t fair to those who have school now and can only enter after 3:00, giving those who do not have school an easier chance to win. I was only able to enter this morning at 7:00 A.M. because I woke up early, which left me exhausted at school. Can you try and at least give out the riddles at a later time, giving EVERYONE fair odds to win… I think everyone who has school and/or a job, would greatly appreciate this.
    Thank you.

    August 14, 2012 at 8:39 pm

    • Actually everyone who enters with a correct answer has the same chance of winning – I accept entries for 24 hours, from the time the riddle is posted until the next riddle is posted. So no matter when you enter for day 2 – from 7am today until approximately 7am tomorrow (Wednesday), if you have the right answer you’re entered in the drawing. The winners are selected completely randomly from all correct entries for that day.

  5. Shadow

    Ah, thank you clearing that up. That makes me feel a LOT better! ^^

    August 14, 2012 at 9:29 pm

    • I’m glad this clears it up – I try to make sure it’s fair for everyone.

    • Getting the answer correct only enters you in the daily drawing – it doesn’t mean you automatically win.
