contest Forum Contest: Win Video Games, Amazon Gift Cards, and More!

45 posts in this topic

To celebrate the recent birth of our forums, we are holding a one-month contest where the 10 best forum contributors will be rewarded as follows:

  • 1st: $100 Amazon Gift Card, or $100 worth of Steam games, or all the mounts and pets from the Blizzard Store.
  • 2nd and 3rd: $50 Amazon Gift Card, or $50 worth of Steam games, or $50 worth of mounts and pets from the Blizzard Store.
  • 4th and 5th: A mount or two pets of their choice from the Blizzard Store.
  • 6th to 10th: A pet of their choice from the Blizzard Store.

Vlad and I are not eligible to enter the contest. Everyone else can enter.

On the 1st of July, at 14:00 GMT, we will attribute points to each and everyone of you. We will then rank you according to the number of points you obtained. Points are obtained in the following ways:

  • 1 point per forum post;
  • 1 point for every post that Vlad or I liked (2 points if both of us liked).
  • additional points given by current reputation on the forums:
  • 5 points if you are friendly;
  • 15 points if you are honored;
  • 35 points if you are revered;
  • 70 points if you are exalted.

As always, we want to promote quality content, so we will keep a very close eye on the forums to make sure that no one is making non constructive posts just to increase their forum count.

I was curious as to how this competition would work on these forums. The Facebook / Twitter mount and pet give - aways are all so random. This is an excellent idea and should encourage quality posts. Good luck to all!

Thanks. We had to think quite a bit before coming up with these rules. It is not easy to find a balance between encouraging people to post, ensuring that quality will be there, and not upsetting forum members who will not be among the winners :P

I hope I win something. I have no money to buy anything from the Blizzard store, so this would be amazing ^_^

Yeh i agree it always seems like i dont win these things because ppl find every single bit of information that could make a new forum post and go ahead and start one. I hope that these rules will be strictly followed by all members and we have a fun time with it. I intend to stay as active on forums as much as possible in the hope that i might actually end up giving advice to someone who is more nab than me (gonna be hard to find lol)

Have fun & good luck to all!!

The wife says I have to win this because "I didn't marry a loser"

Please take this into consideration when tallying points.

Remember! Quality over quantity for posts. Anyone can spam a hundred replies to every topic / every forum per day ... but is that REALLY what people want to read? Unlikely. Having said that, the forum rules / post guides should eliminate the kind of random trolls you seem to have to endure on the mmo-champion / official Blizzard forums.

I'd like to point out that all of the pets and mounts would come out to be $155 (Us). Is this intended or is it just $100 worth of pets/mounts?

Thank you Jacob. Indeed, we kind of overlooked this. Since we said "all the mounts and pets", it will be all the mounts and pets, no matter how much they're worth ;)

I did think this looked rather sweet... A nice prize to go for as personally I can never justify spending actual CASH on vanity pets & mounts!

I wish I was as strong willed as you. Not only have I bought myself 2 of the 3 mounts, I bought the wife all of them. Granted, I'm curious as to if there's a difference between Landro's Lich and Landro's Lil X-T and the ones they sell in the shop. Besides a different name and add two more pets to the count for your acheivements.

Bought the wife the mount made out of noob tears (celestial steed) to get her started playing wow. Amazingly she hates it now, she chooses to ride on the Experiemnt 12-B that she "forced" me to give her after I beat her on the roll. Apparently because I already have 100mounts I don't need it. She now taunts me in Stormwind flying around on it.

Does this mean when you come first you're going to donate the items you already have to charity (also known as me)! Just don't let Icy Veins know!

Totally. Granted that would involve some heavy padding of the my posts and I think Icy Veins may catch on.

But I won't tell anyone. SHHHH!!
