HOW DO YOU BECOME A LEVEL 5 EB WORLD MEMBER?
As of now, there’s no real way of knowing the requirements to become Level 5. An EB Games rep confirmed last year that it was a mix of carrots as well as a number of other requirements.
Speaking to someone who got the invitation yesterday, the person said that they didn’t spend a whole lot of money, but did train in games, buy preowned games, shop at a number of different stores, pre-order games and buy PAX tickets through EB Games.
At this point, it’s not clear if more invites will go out for this period, or if all of the invites went out yesterday.
