[latest update 01 jan 2017]
There are several youtubers and Twitch streamers who do regular giveaways. Twitch giveaways tend to be a little more of a hassle to participate in since you often have to actively follow a streamer, possibly when they’re streaming at odd hours. We’ll therefore focus on Youtube giveaways, at least for the time being.
Mind you, this is a private post intended for our own crew accessible by URL only, although the giveaways themselves are “public domain”. We are not affiliated with the giveaways in any way, but we’d really like our people to win some cool stuff. Remember: the winning chances in each giveaway may be small, but we’re a decent bunch of players already, and even one extra ship like these might benefit our org quite a bit.
Please note that it has recently come to my attention that Youtube uploaders can’t find you as a subscriber unless you’ve allowed for Youtube to publish your channel subscriptions. I guess this means that if this feature is turned off on your account, you will not be eligible for giveaways that require you to subscribe. In Youtube, click “My channel” in the left hand menu, hit the gear icon next to the (inactive) subscribe button, and make sure “keep my subscriptions private” is unchecked.
Quick index with current status (as of the update date on the top of this page):
TheNOOBIFIER1337 is a seasoned youtuber fousing solely on Star Citizen. Lately he has, in cooperation with “Raul / Gideon”, been giving away the 890 JUMP and the Reclaimer, which are ridiculously rare giveaways. Now the user “Hoax” has contributed two prices for a new giveaway: an LTI Pirate edition Caterpillar and an LTI Cutlass Black. Contenders will need to subscribe to his channel and post any comment on his giveaway video.
BoredGamer is possibly our favourite youtuber, with plenty of informative 8-15 minute long videos about new ships, new game features, general game development, you name it. He also does a giveaway every month, though he doesn’t always say in advance which ship is given away any given month. He has posted his rules here, which in short are: comment on any of his vid during a month to have a chance of winning, the winner will be announced on his channel, and will have 7 days to claim his or her prize. You don’t even need to be subscribed; however, you should subscribe if you like relevant status updates about the game. Here is a video you can comment on for instance.
Gives away: Avenger Titan
Deadline: end of January 2017
STLYoungblood does also have a lot of interesting Star Citizen themed videos, and does giveaways regularly. To participate, you need to subscribe to his channel and post any comment to his giveaway video.
