Let's hear from Kay:

The Tyranny Contest has been a great success so a big thank you to all of you who took part. Your time and effort is greatly appreciated and shows what we can achieve when we work together as a group. We’ve had a fantastic response over the last nine days and have accumulated over 1.2 million in total for the coffer. Congratulations to the winners, who managed to collect 237,410 between the three of them – well done, you guys are awesome!

Kay - we really appreciate the work you put into tracking contests for us. Thank you VERY much!

Our recent contests have been wildly successful and it is great to see the guild come together to work on a goal!

Thanks to a great suggestion from Fertha, we're adding a CONTEST channel to Slack. You'll be able to read a summary of the current contest and click a link to the full post. You'll be able to see who the winners are, as well as see a daily total of "raised so far" to let you know our progress.

That is a big deal, because.....

Today, I'm announcing our most important contest to date... we need 1.25 MILLION Influence to get to GH 16, which includes upgrades to all three of our current boon structures. We need lots of other things - currency, gems, gold, and surplus - but the big hold up is going to be Influence.

I can't stress this enough - there's nothing you can do to help your guild AND YOURSELF more than to run Influence every day. The daily quests that grant it have a low limit per character and the structures that need it always need a lot of it.

So our next contest is going to be for Influence and the prizes are incredible.

The contest will run for 1 week, until Sunday, November 27, ending at 8 am UK time, 3 am New York time, midnight on Saturday Pacific time. Influence you donate on multiple characters counts towards your account total, as with all of our contests. There's a catch, though - actually a few key points.

1) The first place prize will only be awarded IF we reach a minimum of 400,000 Influence from all contributors by the time the contest ends!

2) In order to be eligible, you must donate an average of 500 Influence per day (per account), meaning you will have to run 5 stronghold heroics and at least 2 of the boon structure missions (the missions you pick up at Explorer's Guild, Stable, or Barracks).

3) Vouchers that you farm from DF or Siege count, as well as vouchers from Stronghold Starter packs or the Auction house.

So what prizes are worth those kind of conditions?

Third Place - Epic Rimefire Golem
Second Place - a full stack of Lesser Resonance Stones
First Place - Epic Savage Polar Bear mount

We've got a lot of resources to build up over the next three and a half weeks if we want to start GH 16 on time, so the more guild members who join in, the better we'll do - and Influence is something everybody can contribute for just a few minutes each day!

Good luck and GO KILL SOMETHING!
