DiscreetFX's vampire giveaway - who is the winner?

Shortly before X-Mas DiscreetFX started a Vampire V4 giveaway. It was said winners would be announced shortly after December 31st. However, that apparently has never happened. Was this giveaway just a scam to make us write silly emails to them or has any winner actually been announced?

Vampires normally come at night under the cover of darkness so you seldom get an annoucement of their arrival!

This is why it's not announced yet.

This will be announced shortly. Covid almost took me off this earth so that caused a delay.

@DiscreetFX
How selfish some users have become, que egositas se han vuelto algunos usuarios, además se esconden como cobardes detrás de una nueva cuenta.
How are you? because the Covid-19 is very serious and the more important is your health that the vampire.

All the more reason to announce it as soon as possible, before it's potentially too late!!

Get well soon!

@m0lebrain

So it is a secret prize giving? If we haven't got an email we didn't win? Strange system!

Obviously I'm glad DiscreetFX is on the mend but this is hardly a transparent Vampire giveaway! I didn't even know other prizes were on offer!

And apparently this is your first experience with their marketing activities.

Hey, DiscreetFX is worlds most reality based company. Any day now they are going to finnish their Amiga Inc takeover which is funded by proceedings from their movie funded by their celebrity friends. This will help them to crush remains of Microsoft which is going under anyday now due "insert version of windows" is so baaaaaad.



And everytime they eff up "It wasn't me, it was Ted/Intern/Accounting department/Whatever comes mind first".

Friend Rose,

perhaps in the same haste that made you misspell "overlords", you have forgotten to dust off this masterpiece from our good friend and tycoon DiscreetFX:

https://amigaworld.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=43714

Come think about it, a prophecy has come to fulfillment!

"the time has come for us to purchase exquisite clothing items decorated with muscular armed women in bikini drawn by an "artist" who is oh so undoubtedly aware of this sale happening, so that our good friend DiscreetFX can receive the proceedings and oh so certainly share them with the many amiga coders that will rush to claim their stake as per his excellent website's instructions."

It’s interesting you have time to complain about a free giveaway. Did you enter to win?

@BigD

Original announcement was to be mid to late Jan 2021. That’s now been moved to end of Feb 2021 so not much longer. Getting sick really sucked but I managed to survive. Also, the Vampire V4 is no longer backordered with a long waiting list so winner should get their system even sooner than originally thought. Adding extra goodies like the AmigaKit Amiga joystick will just be icing on a gift cake.
