Our team is on a mission to save kids through video games, and we need your help.

This Saturday, October 26th, Zagam, our lead moderator, and his team (made up of Icy Veins members) will be part of a huge international celebration of the social impact of gamers with Extra Life. It is our sincere hope that you will find it in your heart to support us with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to our team's chosen hospital: West Virginia University's Children's Hospital.


Message from Zagam


Dear Gamers, Friends, and Family,

I'm on a mission to save kids, and I need your help. My local Children's Miracle Network Hospital treats thousands of children each year, regardless of their family's ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents to name just a few. This year, again, I am focusing my proceeds to West Virginia University's Children's Hospital.

On October 25, 2014, I'll be participating in this huge worldwide celebration of the social impact of gamers of all kinds from video games to board games and tabletop RPG's! I personally will be participating in 24 straight hours of playing video games while streaming everything I do to raise awareness to this amazingly wonderful cause. I will start at midnight, October 25 and run until 12:00am on October 26!!! The day's events will include a stream of me playing Diablo 3 as a Witch Doctor as well as my entire guild's full 14/14 Heroic clear of World of Warcraft's Siege of Orgrimmar! It's my sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support my efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to my hospital.

Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids. To donate, simple click on one of the team members at http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.teamParticipants&teamID=16702 and then choose "Support me".

Schedule


12:00am to 8:00am - Old Raids such as Naxxramas, Icecrown Citadel, and Ulduar! All who want to join in are welcome to tag along! Hope to clear every single old raid and help others with chances at mounts such as Ashes of Al'ar, Invincible, and Mimiron's Head!

8:00am to 11:30am - Heroic Siege of Orgrimmar, hosted by Zagam. This will be a fun run with no stress in order to access a lockout for Heroic Garrosh that will be used from 12:00pm until 4:00pm.

11:30am to 12:00pm - Lunch. Man's gotta eat!

12:00pm - Special shoutout to all those affected by cancer, especially from those who have donated or are closely related to me and my guild.

12:00pm to 4:00pm - Heroic Garrosh title and BoA weapon giveaways! For 4 hours, my guild will be "selling" BoA weapons from Heroic Garrosh that you can use to fuel your leveling experience going into Warlords of Draenor! Any Horde player can gain this BoA weapon and the title "Liberator of Orgrimmar" for a minimum donation of $10! Remember, the money you donate goes to a great cause while my guild is more than happy to assist you in your future monster-slaying! We will be doing Garrosh kills at 12:30, 1:00, 1:30, 2:00, 2:30, 3:00, 3:30, and 4:00 taking all who have donated at least $10!

4:00pm to 8:00pm - Lots of fun WoW stuff including the Celestial Tournament pet battle, running Dragon Soul again on my Rogue, and generally doing any old run that people want to see or do. Donations from 4:00pm to 8:00pm in the amount of $25 or more will also get to rename ANY OF MY PERSONAL BATTLE PETS TO A NAME OF THEIR CHOOSING! The three highest donations from 4:00pm to 8:00pm will have their re-named battle pets saved into the 3 spots shown on my WoW armory for all to see!

8:00pm to 12:00am - The final 4 hour stretch will be another round of donation-induced selling of Heroic Garrosh. However, included in this stretch will be the entire Siege of Orgrimmar raid! At 8:00, I will look at all the donations received up to that point from the previous 20 hours. The highest 10 will be offered spots with 20 of my guildmates as we plow through Heroic Siege of Orgrimmar! Spots will be offered to the top 10 right at 8:00. If any do not accept, we will work our way down the list until our roster is full!

Although this is not reflected in the schedule, the BOA runs are so popular, that they will be continuing this evening (unless something changes, of course).

 

The current plan is to resume these Heroic Garrosh kills at 6PM EST.

      We are looking for a transmogrification writer to help curate our transmog section.
      We need someone who is a fan of transmogrification and has transmogrification experience on all or most classes. Having a blog or something to showcase that is a definite plus. We also want someone with a lot of free time (output is important, because there is so much to cover).
      As always, when we post this kind of offers, this is a paid position with earnings shared between us and the writer on the guides and articles they will write.
      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.

      We're teaming up with J!NX once again to bring you a chance to win a fantastic hoodie from their WoW collection! Check out the post to see how to win!
      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!
