    I did this event with two of my guildmates and we got disqualifired.
    There was no note from you that is against the rules.
    So for me this is no cheating.

    As this is a contest with highly sought after prizes, we evaluated and awarded individual entries - not as a team or group. As a result, entries that were detected as copies were disqualified for plagiarism. This type of contest requires a lot of effort to search for answers or use existing knowledge. It would be unfair to those who put in effort. Next time, we'll be more clear about this in the rules.

    @CM Servantes @CM Avalace
    I have to protest here against number 18:"Illezra". The "Are you awake?" from the trailer was released in December 2018 (the story revamps were done together with the archer release) and as such is not part of 2019 content, which is why I ruled out the possibility of it being the correct answer. I answered with "talents", which also fits the crossword puzzle and was a common question (even officially answered that way) about Shai's awakening:"Shai doesn't have an awakening, she's got talents."

    Hmm you are actually correct about this, that Illezra was introduced in Dec 2018. Her opening line however is famous in the community and the first thing you hear when you first start a new character in BDO. Majority of responses had answered Illezra. It's a bit of a stretch to consider Talents, but I see where you're coming from. We will be sticking to "Illezra" as the final answer. Next time will be sure to fact check on our questions/answers. Thank you for pointing this out!

    People gather the answers together anyway, and considering that that certain event discord has thousands of people, most likely the vast majority will have at least inspired their answers from there. Just rewarding those people who then gave those 2 minutes extra to rewrite it again, seems kind of silly to me. Especially since there was no statement that you have to find the answers on your own. I mean, in the end, the previous events from the last few weeks gave you enough possibilities to laze through them as well.

    I see of course how it's frustrating when people just want to leech the rewards, but then might as well properly think about it from the start, or just accept it as is. But don't suddenly pull back afterwards, as this is not the fault of the participants.

    This was very dirty pool. I guess husband and wives and a few guild mates weren't allowed to work on it together. It said NOTHING about sharing answers. Kind of shitty all the work a lot of us did in finding the answers and it was all for NOTHING. Def wont be doing another one of your stupid activity's, cause I'm sure ill do something wrong that you're not specific about.

    This is the first time we've hosted this type of contest by the CM Team, especially with such highly sought after prizes. It's difficult to predict what the players will do or how they understand the rules/guidelines until we see the submissions. Just to be clear, the event Discord is not an official Kakao Games Discord and not associated with us. The reason why the submissions were via google form was to prevent other players from seeing your entry, to prevent plagiarism in the first place. I noticed that there were players commenting "Reserved" or "Placeholder" intending to post the answers in the announcement forum post. I stopped them immediately before their efforts went in vain by other players copying their answers. It wouldn't be fair.

    In previous contests, we've started out with general guidelines/rules. As we see what players submit or hear their feedback after the contest is over, we adjust the rules for the next contest of the same type. Any word-type of contest generally has plagiarism as an auto-disqualification. We will be clear about this in the next contest.

    Being clearer about it in the next contest is one thing, admitting to your flaw in making the rules is another. You are punishing people for your lack of foresight, and that's not how it should be.
    I had to plan things IRL from time to time as well, and sure, you don't always keep every possible outcome in mind, leading to flaws in the ruleset. You have the possibility to adapt the rules on the run, but having people make use of your flaw and then afterwards come out with it is a no-go from my perspective. At least if it's not something completely breaking the premise of the game in mind. As already said, probably only very few solved it on their own, be it because of the event discord or doing things together with friends. One might be fast to forget this in BDO, but this actually is not a single player game.

    My only question is what do you consider to be copies? If everyone is supposed to do this individually and enter the words electronically - a majority are not going to handwrite the letters one by one into the boxes. Then the text they used will most likely all look the same - will those then be considered "copies"? There are only so many text types out to use. I'll just have to hand draw a crossword if there is ever another event like this.
