Re: India Gaming Carnival - Real or Scam ?

Its a shame, this event was done just for defrauding people it seems. Afterall people will not be going to court etc to claim back their Rs. 500. But some1 should, so that no1 else tries something similar to the gaming community in the near future.

See, a bank guarantee is essentially a contract between two parties in which one party will pay to the other is it does not fulfil the terms of the contract. So this contract is between whom? NSR construction and WTF ? What are the terms of the contract? Let us see this contract and bank guarantee.

With both NSR construction and WTF having same address, I guess their is nothing more to say. No need to see any contract or any bank guarantee. We only need to identify their intentions :

1) They want to generate hype and hoopla with big numbers, so that more people attend the event (With the 1.5Crore prize announcement though, they can get as many people as they want but still they would not have money to give out the prizes)

2) They want to simply fraud people of the registration money and cheat a few small time sponsors they might have received.

Re: India Gaming Carnival - Real or Scam ?

These guys are running an event to promote that ayatti convention center. The sponsorships are by one of the founders close friends who have promised the 1.5 crores to him. He, being a gamer, decided to organise an event that would attract a lot of people. Obviously people are wary of such claims, but you can either sit and diss all day long or take a chance to see this happen. I am looking at the positive side though and I hope it does happen.

A lot of people have problems paying up prizes. Like my headphones from Erodov for winning the writing contest. I haven't gotten it after 2 years. I gave up after having to chase one guy after another who kept promising to send it. Vijayninel was spammed enough times by me but in the end, it's the same thing that might happen here. Good intention. Bad Execution.

That doesn't mean I won't support gaming companies or Erodov for that matter .

Also I have spoken to people at Zomato. Till the event takes place they will hold you rmoney, so a reimbursement is possible should the event not occur.

Who are "these guys" Who was promised what by whom? Why are there no genuine sponsors till now? Why are the sponsors and organisers sharing the same office space ? They are just throwing around wild figures without any basis at all.

Your prize was sent to you twice through two different courier companies, however both of them returned it saying there was no such address. We cant help it if the address you give is incorrect or is untraceable. I even asked you to pick it up locally from @200mph but you didnt pick them up. All the remaining participants confirmed that they received the prizes.

Secondly, we didnt ask you to pay any fees in order to participate in our contest. It was a free for all and all our contests have been free to enter. These people are asking you to pay in advance. Also our sponsors if any are always clearly listed and reachable. That is not the case here.

Re: India Gaming Carnival - Real or Scam ?

How does Zomato come in, it is a company which is a food rating and services company !!!
how is it related to a gaming event and that to handling the money for the event???
have they given an official letter of such a commitment ?
also the companies mentioned on their websites are just fronts of th esame company, all have the same addresses !! how wierd is that?

unless I see proper papers, I would request all members of Erodov to stay away from this and not fall in the trap !!!

As for money being small, remember small drops fill the buckets and a lot of buckets fill lakes and oceans !!
so stop being a part of such an event !!!

In case the event doesn't take place, will they be refunding the registration money ??
Please read the terms and conditions that you agree to while purchasing tickets through zomato.
2. Tickets/Vouchers/Passes/Packages once sold will not be cancelled, refunded or transferred under any circumstances.

13. This show is subject to force majeure conditions.
IMO even the Zomato people have not investigated what exactly is going on over here. They are just selling the tickets for a partly fees. In any case they are only selling the tickets and dont guarantee you anything in writing.

Yes, I think that our former mod Maxaxe is fully aware of what is going on though he may distance himself from the event and sponsors at a later stage.

I suspect that the event will be "postponed" for a few centuries shortly before it takes place.

I'm speechless. That's another Question Mark dangling in favor of Organizers !?
A small scale Gaming Expo at Ambience Mall seems a much better idea now...

There you go : The second sponsor also shares the same third floor office and same phone number as the other sponsor and WTF eventz. Please note that they deleted the address from the Gennext site though they couldnt delete it from everywhere.

Re: India Gaming Carnival - Real or Scam ?

I was away for a few days and look at that!
Wasn't even aware of such an event before vijay called me up.

When is the event btw, April 1??

Indeed. This whole thing seems unreal and you know what they say about stuff which appears too good to be true.

Besides shearing the sheep, these also bring about disrepute to the country and the community.
Some comments at international forums regarding this are already making me squirm.
