    Agreed on all accounts. Shipping is high, was easy to get looks like they must have a made a lot with how long it was open for.

    They're allowing proxy pickups but the page doesn't say how they're preventing fake name entries, I imagine they're doing something, but it doesn't say.

    They say they’re checking IP addresses. So I’d imagine if you enter 5 from the same IP they’d catch on. I know VPNs could fix that issue but I hope people have some respect for the system

    They should bump up the names against names in the lottery, eliminate duplicates and then potentially have proxies provide both their ID as well as a copy of the ID of the lottery winner. Just an idea. Or if you're using a proxy, you have to send a photocopy of your ID to Toppling. Some way of forcing you not to just register using everyone in your family on every device you own.

    People already ISO proxies for this and negotiating thank you beers. This is crazy to me. With the unreal allotment that was described and the wide time window for enrollment into the lottery I am guessing thousands of people will enter. I am wondering what the odds of actually winning are. Anyone know how many approximate allotments there are? What have they done in years prior?

    Not sure the exact amount usually would say close to 1500-2000. However yea this is going to be a crazy small chance to win.

    Securing proxies now just means if you win you have someone to get you the beer. If you lose nobody is out anything.

    This is actually probably the most polite response I could get. Mine was definitely a bit trolly, so I deleted it. Cheers to you!

    I kind of figured. But it wouldn’t be the first time on BA someone came in to say that. I don’t take anything on this site too seriously as we’re all here to enjoy good beer and help each other out. Cheers to you as well.

    There's usually a ton of entries into their BA lotteries because they make a whole event of TG releases in Decorah, lots of draft events and bottle shares, official and unofficial, and Pulpit Rock will have releases too.

    So I wonder how many more will enter because proxies are allowed, or if it's a wash because there's no chance of going to have a good time this time around.

    I guess I just don't see the point in counting your chickens before they hatch. People be giving up Assassin bottles like its a White Claw.

    I'm with you... It cluttering up the trading boards and is completely unnecessary at this point. Plus after being home for so long, I'm looking forward to the drive if I'm lucky enough to get a package.

    I love how all the ISO posts have now transformed into FT posts. Think there's gonna be a lot of disappointed people on both ends of these deals, but just thought that immediate switch to opportunism was pretty funny. Don't see that very often in real time on here anymore.

    It’s not the people that are like hey I don’t have to travel from Cali to get there so I’ll enter. It’s the people like I’ll travel either way but I’m going to enter my mom/Gma/gpa/baby mamas cousin and if they win I’ll be there proxy, that worries me.

    Pretty amazing to me people are asking for and receiving a bottle of assassin just for proxying. That’s wild. Seems a bit steep. But if you’re desperate you’re desperate I guess.

    I had some time off in May for DLD...still waffling on actually entering, but if I do, and win, I'll probably go. Maybe stop at some kind of park or other on the way there or back, if they're open. With my Vader mask.

    It's not like beer nerds on each corner of the IA-MN-WI-IL border have anything better to do... the amount of people willing to offer proxy services will be unreal. Just make sure you choose someone that you can trust!

    For a bottle of Assassin, I'm certainly available to proxy for someone.

    Hoping these emails get sent early and everyone gets notified together but knowing TG, half of the winners will be notified at 11:58 pm tonight and the other half won’t be notified until next week because their server crashed or some shit.

    What they have been doing the past few lotteries is sending out the winners. Usually there’s a 2 hour window of people being notified and then a second round of emails for the people who won but didn’t claim their ticket.

    In the past it’s usually 11-12 cst but usually they’ll post on the tweeter or the instergrams they sent out emails.
