      Applicants should send an e-mail to jobs@icy-veins.com with as many details as possible. The deadline for applying is the 2nd of November at 00:00 GMT.

      The winners of the contest have been contacted via our forums. We will not be listing the winners' names to ensure there is no trading or selling of the codes used. If you have any problems, contact me (Blainie) via the forums.
      We're just around the corner from the release of the latest expansion, Legion, and J!NX are celebrating even more new additions to their line of WoW clothing and accessories. We're teaming up with J!NX to giveaway 12 hoodies from the World of Warcraft section on their website!
      Here are some of the possible hoodie designs that you could be winning:

      The brand new "Crossed Warglaives" design. (Unisex)

      Alliance hoodie design. (Alliance version / Horde version)

      Illidan hoodie design. (Unisex)
      How can I enter?
      First things first, you'll need to head to the WoW section on J!NX and take a look at the hoodies they have on offer. Let us know which hoodie you would want in a comment below, as well as a link to the one you're talking about! We've pre-filtered the site for you so that you can already see a full list of the hoodies available here.
      Note: Just as with the previous giveaway, your hoodie of choice MUST belong to the World of Warcraft collection.
      Rules
      The contest will run until the 12th September, 2016 (23:59 CEST). We will be choosing 12 winners to receive a code for their hoodie of choice. The codes will only work for hoodies in the World of Warcraft section. The winners will be selected randomly from the comments on this post that include the required information. Double entries will be removed. You may only enter once. Any cheating will immediately disqualify that user - this includes using multiple accounts to enter. Our decision is final in regards to winners. All winners will be contacted via our forums. Good luck everyone!
