Are the regular familiar competitions e-mailed to you? Yes, if you subscribe to the Events Newsletter.

I do get something every month, but it's usually in the middle of the month when an event is halfway over with. I didn't see one for this this month.

Yea, I missed that "need TWO third-place tickets to get a grab-bag.". Why two?

And if everything is a multiple of 5 -- 200, 50, 5 -- why not cut it all by 5, or else have a lot of 1 point tickets available?

Expiring:

Trying to purchase these in the inn is going to be much less desirable if they expire. Why? Because if I only purchase (say, as an example) 185 points, then everything I spent is essentially lost.

This item is probably the biggest reason to have some sort of automated trading system for items -- the AH/CS idea from beta-days, or a dedicated exchange (like the doubloon exchange) for tickets.

The idea, as mentioned in the OP, is that like going to an arcade you accumulate tickets, and eventually trade them in. So if that is the model, then there should be a "trade-in" event say, once every quarter. Tickets can be accumulated over time.

The good/bad/ugly? Too much turns into "Get a familiar just for participating and playing long enough". If the tickets last and are of value over time, they become more of "purchase a familiar" -- which might be either good or bad.

Primarily thank you for the competitions as always.

Secondly, are random competitions with red tickets still going to happen till the 9th of october? Since it's over with the main ones I have a doubt that they are going to continue, though hope they do carry on to use up this single red ticket I got left. Thanks in advance

The random competitions will continue through the 30th. The reason the tickets don't expire until the 9th is that I wanted to give people time to collect them and figure out what they want. It also gives them a chance to petition again if they're busy on some of the collection days.

I might as well say this now: Please note that many pirates will be trying to claim their prizes at the end of this event. This means that it's likely there will be an extended wait while I plow through all the requests.

You choose type and color with normal restrictions.
 
If you acquire enough points for a colored familiar, you may pick the type and color. However, please keep in mind that the standard event restrictions are in place. No all white, all black, LE colors, etc will be allowed.

First of all, I've been quite impressed with your patience in receiving your prizes. We've had lighter coverage this weekend which is contributing to the delay in prize distribution. I just wanted to let you all know that I'll get to your request as soon as possible.
