Order content and information
You can purchase up to one set per member. That means you can technically buy up to 14 items in one order (multiple members = same order).
This time around, as said before, there are two rounds for purchasing. This does not mean there are two limista events, rather the sales for one event will be spread out in two different purchase rounds.
The rounds will follow up each other, meaning the second round will start once the first round has "finished" selling. Note that deadlines for certain things will differ (these will be shown later). Below more explanation about both rounds:
First round: the sales will start of with a lottery round. For a limited time, you will be ably to apply for lottery to get chosen to buy one package per member. You can apply for multiple members, just only once per member. If chosen, you will get a winning mail from Limista and you are able to make the payment within the deadline for your won items. Note this does not equal winning the live signing lottery, like usual this is another separate lottery that will still happen as well.
Second round: after the 1st round has finished "selling", a potential (!) second round with first-come-first-serve system will be organised. Potentional meaning Limista does note that if any sold outs happen with the first round - there will be no second round (most likely speaking per specific member). This is the regular system we know from previous events. For this event, as long as there is availability, you can buy multiple packs per member in separate orders.
