AGREEMENT TO OFFICIAL RULES. By participating in the Sweepstakes, you (“Entrant”) fully and unconditionally agree to and accept these Official Rules and the decisions of the Sponsor, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Whether Entrant receives a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.
TIMING. The Sweepstakes begins on September 19, 2019 at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) and ends on September 29, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. PDT (the “Entry Period”). Winners will be announced on or about September 29, 2019. Entrants may also monitor contest progress and review the list of official winners for each Milestone’s drawing at www.pledgethepirateslife.com. Sponsor’s computer is the official time-keeping device for the Sweepstakes.
HOW TO ENTER. To enter the Sweepstakes, you must: (a) fill out and submit the form located at https://forms.gle/EE8eedaVRkqXpQAy5 (an “Entry”) and (b) Play Battlewake. An Entrant may submit only one Entry per person. If you use fraudulent methods or otherwise attempt to circumvent the rules your submission may be removed from eligibility at the sole discretion of Sponsor.
By submitting an Entry, you grant a non-exclusive license to Sponsor to use, display and distribute it in all media (including, without limitation, all social media platforms) for promotional purposes. Any engagement in social media by Sponsor does not guarantee a Sweepstakes win. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, un-intelligible or misdirected Entries, which are void and will be disqualified. Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may feature any Entry submitted in this Sweepstakes at any time during, or after, the Entry Period on websites, in any promotional materials, whether related or un-related to the Sweepstakes, in games, and at any other location, whether physical or online, that Sponsor, in its sole discretion, deems appropriate or necessary for the operation and promotion of this Sweepstakes.
ALTERNATE METHOD OF ENTRY. You may also enter the Sweepstakes by mail as follows. On a plain 3” x 5” index card, legibly handprint or type your first name, last name, date of birth, complete address, city, state, zip code, home or mobile phone number, and email address, and mail your completed 3” x 5” card to Sponsor: Survios, Inc., Attention: Battlewake Sweepstakes, 3249 S. La Cienega Blvd., Culver City, CA 90016. To be considered eligible in the Sweepstakes, AMOE entries must be received during the Entry Period.
WINNER DETERMINATION. During the Entry Period Sponsor will collect gameplay data regarding how many enemies all Entrants collectively kill in game across all game modes on all supported platforms (Steam, Oculus and Playstation) (“ships sunk”). When the collective number of ships sunk by all Entrants passes the milestone set forth below (each, a “Milestone”) the Sponsor will conduct a random drawing among all contemporaneous Entrants. The number of winners and the prizes corresponding to the drawing for each Milestone shall be as set forth in the table below:
Milestone: 1, Ships Sunk: 50,000, Number of Winners: All Entrants, Prize(s): Digital asset pack with Battlewake wallpapers and sounds;
Milestone: 2, Ships Sunk: 100,000, Number of Winners: 25, Prize(s): Battlewake T-Shirt and Stickers;
Milestone: 3, Ships Sunk: 150,000, Number of Winners: 10, Prize(s): $50 digital gift card for Steam or Playstation network (Entrant’s choice of one);
Milestone: 4, Ships Sunk: 250,000, Number of Winners: 1, Prize(s): $1,000 USD;
All random drawings will be conducted by representatives of Sponsor, whose decisions are and shall be final and binding in all matters relating to this Sweepstakes. The odds of winning depend on how many entries Sponsor receives. Sponsor’s previous sweepstakes contest, the Creed: Rise to Glory Sweepstakes received approximately 300 entrants.
WINNER REQUIREMENTS. Potential winners will be publicly announced by Sponsor on or around September 29, 2019 and notified by email. Each potential winner (parent/legal guardian if winner is a minor in his/her state or country of residence) will be required to sign and return to Sponsor, within three (3) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent (or such longer period as required by applicable law), an Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability & Publicity Release in order to claim the prize. Sponsor shall have no liability for a winner’s failure to receive notices due to winners’ spam, junk email or other security settings or for a winner’s provision of incorrect or otherwise non-functioning contact information. Potential winners outside the United States may also be required to answer a skill-testing mathematical question and/or complete additional documentation. If any winner cannot be contacted, or fails to sign and return the applicable Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability & Publicity Release within the required time period noted above, that applicable potential winner forfeits the prize and will be disqualified. All potential winners must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules; and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. Failure to comply with these requirements for any reason, return of prize notification or prize as undeliverable or disqualification of any winner for any reason will result in forfeiture of the prize; an alternate winner will be selected by random drawing from the remaining entrants and the applicable prize will be awarded to that alternate winner. Only two alternate winners for each prize will be selected, after which the applicable prize will remain un-awarded. Acceptance of any prize shall constitute and signify the winner’s agreement and consent to Sponsor’s use of the winner’s name, city, state, province, territory or country, likeness, voice, photos and/or prize information in connection with the Sweepstakes worldwide, including the Internet, without limitation and without further payment or consideration, except where prohibited by law. Prizes will be fulfilled by December 1, 2019.
PRIZES. One (1) Grand Prize: $1,000 U.S. Dollars. Ten (10) Second Prizes: a $50 digital gift card for Steam, Oculus or Playstation network (Entrant’s choice of one) (approximate retail value (“ARV”) of $50). Twenty-five (25) Third Prizes: a Battlewake T-Shirt and Stickers (ARV of [$40]). Finally, all Entrants will receive a digital asset pack containing Battlewake sounds and wallpapers upon the achievement of the first Milestone (ARV of $1). The ARV of electronic items is subject to fluctuations in the consumer marketplace based on, among other things, any gap in time between the date the ARV is estimated for purposes of these Official Rules and the date the item is redeemed. Prizes are non-transferable and no substitution will be made unless Sponsor, in its sole discretion, determines otherwise. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a listed prize for one of equal or greater value if the designated prize should become unavailable for any reason. Winner is responsible for all prize related expenses, including, without limitation, federal, state and local taxes and fees associated with prize receipt and/or use. Total ARV of all Sweepstakes prizes: $[$2,501]. ARVs are denominated in U.S. Dollars.

GENERAL CONDITIONS. Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Sweepstakes, or any part of it, if any fraud, technical failures or any other factor beyond Sponsor’s reasonable control impairs the integrity or proper functioning of the Sweepstakes, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Sponsor, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to disqualify any individual found to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or those of any other promotion or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision. The receipt by winner of the prizes offered in this Sweepstakes is conditioned upon compliance with any and all federal and state laws and regulations.
