Sorry.. I don't see how the randoms were legit. If someone can please explain it to me. I bought in thinking they would do it fairly for everyone.

The whole point is to do it LIVE where we actually see it happening.. not complaining about not getting any hits.. I'm complaining that it's shady how BlowoutTV switched to BreakersTV AFTER it was all done.. and then the randoms were pretty much done behind closed doors.

They were on breakers the whole time they never switched anywhere

The random wasn't live though that is correct

The random is the most important part! Has to be LIVE to have any integrity. The promo itself is great but really turns in BS when it's so shady.

Come on man.... nobody was forced to participate in this promo. If you don't trust Blowout, you should find another forum. Yes, live would have been nice, but it is not the big deal that you are making this out to be.

I've been on this forum/site for a number of years and found them nothing but reliable and honest.

Nooo.. I'm saying it's a GREAT promo.

BUT they missed out on the most important part of determining who gets what. It was all about the LIVE aspect and everyone missed it.

So you gotta look at it from my point of view.. first time on blowout. The ONLY reason I bought into the promo was the CHANCE of hitting something.

The links were all wrong so I didn't see the live break. The update was posted AFTER the break was complete. And on top.. the randoms were behind closed doors. Soo.. what part of any of that is being a fair promo?

So... you have me totally confused. You call it a "great" promo, yet in the same breath you claim it's not fair. whatever... I give up and am moving on.... I'm done.

Congrats to whoever got the 1/1.

I completely trust that Blowout did this fairly and everything was on the up and up, but they did drop the ball a bit by not knowing most people couldn't see much of the break and having the random not online. I can see how people new to here are skeptical.

I am happy though with my purchase. I pulled a Harrison Barnes auto from my boxes and got a Royce White RPA in my draw. Didn't get one of the big hits, but it was certainly worth the investment.

Worth the investment and the promo is great if all were done CORRECTLY. But it was executed so poorly and shady IMO. Going back to page 1 you see how hyped up it was being LIVE.. so I was cool with that. The links posted by admin directed you elsewhere though. There was nothing happening on that link and no communication (you can look back on page 3 of this board to verify).

The BreakersTV link was posted AFTER the "LIVE" break was complete. Then randomized without any viewers. So yes I did trust blowout at first to do things correctly but that just wasn't the case. With the level of hype, price, and many people involved it needed to be done live and randomed live without question. That would have taken away any doubt or shadyness.

Not to be a stickler, but where does it say theat the randoms will be live???

As for the breakerstv link, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt that they didn't know ustream wasn't working for live feeds and didn't find out until later
