We have received your entry for the "Spyder MR Series Weekly Giveaway". 2 Winners will be selected each week to win either the Spyder MR1 Semi-Auto scenario marker, or the Spyder MR2 Electronic scenario marker. Winners will be notified by email, and results will be posted right here at spyder.tv.

Don't see any report of results thus far. Doesn't even mention exactly where that results will be posted. Hmmmmmmm - :confused:

At any rate, if you did not receive an e-mail yet, my guess is you didn't win for the last drawing - :o

This gun is really awsome looking. I know I won't win, but it would really be nice to see a suprising email stating I won :p


My friend told me to enter this contest. Ofcourse I got really jelous. He wont the MR1!

Andy Gill << Lucky person

Are there winners from the same place?

Well Kingman makes amazing starter and medium level player markers. Good luck to the company and all that love the Spyders.

Yeah after realizing its hopeless, I went out and started looking at auto cockers.

My little brother entered thinking he can win, I'd be dammed. I love the look of that gun, and it would truely bite to see my bro win. I'd be happy cause I'd probably have some ownership of it but meh!


Good Luck everyone.

Seems kind of unfair... :(

marvin-martian
07-21-2006, 09:02 AM
how is discriminatory? they pick it at random, and because of the number of people entering in each contry, the odds are that more americans and canadians will be choosen. lets say 14 americans, 11 canadians, and 1 swede enters. the picker reaches into the bag and has a 1/26 chance of picking you.

Well, that might be but it isn't.
Europe is full of players who want's the MR1 or the MR2.
The lottery is international and still there is nobody outside the American continent who won!?
Yes, I think it is strange.
We are 730 miljon people over here..

vikingshadow
07-22-2006, 04:05 AM
You aren't 730 million paintball players or entries into the contest, though. I honestly don't see your reasoning. I haven't won a gun either and have entered 3 times. So are they discriminating against Northwest Oklahomans? Come on! Oh, wait! I get it - this is another way America is just a bunch of jerks, right? Tell ya what, complain when you find the number of people who have actually entered from all over the world and calculate the odds. By law, you have the right to ask how many contestants there are. (By the way, Kingman is a company from Taiwan with offices all over the place, and the VS series was unveiled in Europe, not America, so I seriously doubt that they are just pleasing us Americans.)

Sure, paintball is all over the world, but I do believe the the actual number of paintball players per capita is higher in American and Canada, so the odds are that someone from this part of the world is going to win. How many people actually VISIT the Kingman site, anyways, and know about the drawing? Now, break it down per country? How many Swedes visit? How many Scottish? How many Russian? The odds aren't stacked in your favor, but still fair since it's a random DRAWING.

Sorry for the rant, but I'm sick of the rest of the world coming down on Americans - unfair, my ass.

MonkeyWiz
07-22-2006, 08:48 AM
Sorry for the rant, but I'm sick of the rest of the world coming down on Americans - unfair, my ass.
Chill, please!
I am not angry cause I didn't win.
I think it is odd that nobody outside your continent did.
Sure the odds are against me, I know that.
I hardly ever win anything personaly.

I do believe that a big number of players from Europe visits the Kingman site.
No doubt!
The gaming industries in Germany, England, France and Scandinavia is HUGE per capita and getting bigger.

I just think it is odd, thats all.
Sorry if you took it personal it was not my intention to agrevate anyone.

vikingshadow
07-22-2006, 09:36 AM
Nah, just having a bad few days is all - unexpected problems with things breaking down, lack of sleep due, etc, gripey wives, list goes on, but they're all excuses....I think I've been reading the BSNation political threads too much lately, as well, and took it way more personal than I should have...

I sometimes blow steam, then it's all done. We're all ok, now.

By the way - in 40 years I NEVER win anything either. I actually think there's a conspiracy against me.

yeah really lucky....which one did u get?

I got the MR1, I was about to buy it too, and as I was looking at it's specs there was the link to the MR Giveaway page, I signed up, wasn't expecting to win though.

I signed up on the forum a few day's after a Kingman Rep. contacted me, to verify what I had to purchase afterwards and all. (Found out I needed a Spring Kit) Most of the other stuff I already knew about though..

Anyways, I recieved it monday, brokerage fee's were quite high, as usual, UPS isn't very nice with Canadians :rolleyes:

To finish off, I strongly recommend this marker over the 98 Custom. I personally find it slightly simpler to get used to, and much easier to strip..

SammieWammie
08-04-2006, 10:35 AM
Kingman didn`t charge me, UPS charged me for the importantion and custom`s clearance. So basically they charged me taxes on the retail value of the gun (UPS)

And candian money is exactly the same as american money:P Execpt you get 1.12 (Something close to that) $CAD for every 1$US, oh and also, our money looks much better ;)

We used to see that stuff occasionally when I lived in Detroit and we called it funny money lol. We went on vacation at Niagra Falls on the CAD side one year and when we used American currency the CAD's ripped us on exchange and when we used that stuff it was all too confusing. It was a nice little vacation just the same. Some koo stuff to do there -

Funny you should have gone to Toronto. There they have no clue what the exchange is and gave us way too much in change.

SammieWammie
08-04-2006, 06:20 PM
Ahh, I always get my money changed at the bank, I do agree it can easily be called funny money though. All the bills have segments of divers texts and stuff, I just find american bills so plain, and 1$ bills? They get worn so quickly, when you see a stack of green bills in canada you know that person has lot`s of cash, whereas in the states you can have like 75$ in ones and 5`s and you`ll look rich. You can`t tell the difference between a benjamin and a 10$ bill unless your close enough.. Our money is also harder to duplicate, but hey, that`s a disadvantage for us ;). All in all maybe we just prefer our own currencies since were more familiar with it. It`s known that most people don`t like it when things change..

So you have to have a special wallet? American momey is better.

Why would I need a special wallet.. I included in my other post the bills were pretty much the same size.

calebh
08-23-2006, 01:20 PM
im an american, but i dont like our money much... and going by that picture, candian money looks pimp. but i like the new $10 US bills. but american money is so wierd compared to other countries' currencies...

$75 in 1s? lol i had like $30 once. my wallet was fat.
