Okay, this thread is about getting lottery tickets in the current Steam summer sale. Just the facts: on each day of sale, there will be special achievements for games and when you complete one, you get one ticket. You can then redeem three tickets in order to get one reward. Additionally, each ticket will enhance your chances to win the grand prize at the end of the sale (ten games from your wishlist). It's fairly simple and pretty much identical to the last winter sale.
When your click on your profile you will see the progress you've made and it suggests that there is a limit of four prizes and sixteen tickets to get.
Furthermore, we will discuss strategies and problems regarding the achievements.
BIT.TRIP BEAT: This is not too difficult. Just start "Transmission" and don't miss 76 blocks in a row.
Lead and Gold: I'm not sure how difficult this one is in regular play. I didn't bother finding out and just decided to game this one with a couple of fellow RPSers. The server on which you play has to be a public one and not private, though.
Swords and Soldiers HD: This not too difficult either. The first two missions of the Viking campaign are tutorials of sorts and in the third mission, just develop melee fighters and the healing spell. Send your troops on the upper road first and after the first tower there, start sending troops to the lower road. Make sure to use the healing spell often to keep your guys alive.
Welcome to Camp: Simply join the Steam group. No questions asked.
If you have strategies for the other achievements or ones that are better than mine, feel free to post them.
PS: If you don't like that whole lottery thing and think it's a gigantic waste of time, good for you, but don't bother posting in here.
