The Gate - The Solution

This riddle was complicated and in hindsight, there are many things I should have thought about. However, I am considering them when I reveal the winners. There were 90 participants.
     
From the base scenario, the number 8 could be derived. However, the clue revealed that there is no universal answer.
   
-----------------------
Imagine the numbers of the keys incorporated in Tengaged. Where do you see 1-15?
And THAT is why the answers are unique to you and not universal. ;)
-----------------------
   
Your own colour level was also NOT your safe key. XD
But 8 is the correct key for 2 groups of users. With this in mind, here are the solutions:
     
If you are a....
>TV Star: Your safe keys are: 7 & 8
>Blood level: Your safe keys are: 6 & 7
>Sky Blue level: Your safe keys are: 5 & 6
>Gold level: Your safe keys are: 4 & 5
>Silver level: Your safe keys are: 3 & 4
>Black level: Your safe keys are: 2 & 3
>Brown level: Your safe keys are: 1 & 2
>Red level: Your safe keys are: 15 & 1
>Purple level: : Your safe keys are: 14 & 15
>Blue level: Your safe keys are: 13 & 14
>Dark Green level: Your safe keys are: 12 & 13
>Light Green level: Your safe keys are: 11 & 12
>Orange level: Your safe keys are: 10 & 11
>Yellow level: Your safe keys are: 9 & 10
>White level: Your safe keys are: 8 & 9
     
So in hindsight, the secret number in the base scenario should NOT have been one of the key numbers.
     
Here's how I've decided to delegate points:
If you guess both keys correct: 10 entries in random.org (Spoilers, no one got this)
If you guess one key correct AND NO OTHER GUESS: 5 entries in random.org
If you guess one key correct BUT did guess again incorrectly: 4 entries in random.org
If you are a TV Star* who guessed 8 as their one guess: 3 entries
If you guessed your colour level AND/OR 8 AND NO OTHER GUESS: 1 entry
If you guessed your colour level with an incorrect guess as well: 0 entries
   
I did warn you that if you guess two, be sure. And everyone who guessed two before I said that were offered a second chance.
   
*There was one white level who guessed 8 but it was after he had already guess 2 incorrect keys, so I didn't count him. :(
     
With that all in mine, next post will be all the users with entries....
(give me a minute, I wrote it all on paper like a dumb dumb) :P

The winner:
XoXu - 5 entries (Congratulations! You're the only survivor! XD)
If you want the gift, you can have it, random.org off because you really are the only survivor!
   
Runners up:
HowLovely - 4 entries (You guessed one right but then you guessed again incorrectly)
_Teemo_ - 4 entries (only taking one away because while you got one right, you also guessed 8) XD
(I think I may double your entries 'cos I'm impressed) XD
     
TV Stars who guessed 8:
Aquamarine - 3 entries
DanielKennedy111 - 3 entries
Andalarew_2231 - 3 entries
Zinger - 3 entries
nbkiller - 3 entries
TheSexiestDude990 - 2 entries
Dandoe - 2 entries
   
Everyone else who guessed 8 alone, their colour level alone OR both:
Nicknack, Juliann, JoglruLOST, MelloJello, Sam_Hamwich, JoJo7784, PureEssense, Fedebenna, Superman11, Catch_a_falling_star, Survivorfan37, Colin1357, Pikachu142, Tizian, ninjohn, Pieguy555, Kelly0412, Galaxies, Pegasus1234 (she was sky when she guessed), Lexibear, m7md26, Snake, Levonini & Winner132
     
So that's 33 users to be entered into the gift giveaway!
What I've randomly decided to do is double the entries for the runners up & the only survivor (unless XoXu doesn't win the random.org and says he wants the gift)
   
BRB, gonna random.org it...

So was it just coincidence that when you read the paragraph down it says It is Eight?

Ninjohn, not exactly.
You see a place where you see 1-15 includes plusses and negs.
So you take your colour level, which is silver.
So you're at +11. Then you can -8 (3) or +8 (12-13-14-15-1-2-3-4, so 4)
So colour level & 8 mattered. :D
And that's why this was really convoluted. X:
Don't worry, more actual silly and not complicated events are coming.
   
Anywho, random.org results!!!
