Nexomania Loot Box Giveaway!

Recommended Posts

BM1C18l.png

Rack your brains and jump into the ring to solve some riddles! Find the answer fast enough and you might be able to grab yourself some Nexomania loot boxes!

As most of you already know, the Nexomania event is well underway with the introduction of reworks for Lunara and Diablo, as well as heaps of new skins to earn. With so many new additions, it can be tough to collect all the ones you want, right?

We're giving our users a chance to win 5 Nexomania Loot Boxes (you can check out some of the skins in them here), but there's a catch. In typical Royal Rumble fashion, there can only be one winner, so make sure you get yourself into the ring. Once the rumble begins, you can discuss and team up if you wish, but at the end, there will only be one left standing. Every piece of information you choose to share (or not share) might be the difference between the next person jumping ahead and grabbing the prize before you.

So, without further ado. Let's get ready to rumble!

How do I enter?

We have created two riddles for you to solve, each of which points to a hero that is currently present in the Nexus. To win, you need to solve the riddles and then match the answer to the code assigned to that hero. Easy enough, right?

That's what we thought, too, so we made it a bit harder. Every hero has been assigned a random code, with only one of them being a "winning" choice. The first riddle will give you the first 20 letters and numbers of the code. The problem is, the winning code has to be a 21 character entry.

The second riddle will give you the last character of the code, so you'll need to make sure you solve both to be able to win! Once you have done so, you can enter the first 20 characters given by the first riddle, followed by the last character from the second.

An example using the codes that are listed below, would be as follows:

Quote

If you solved the first riddle and got Rexxar as your answer, then solved the second riddle and got Dehaka as your answer, the code would be:

IQZF-GBBA-NSYHX-MJ7B-WXCB

If you are unsure of where to enter the code if you think you have won, you can do it in your Battle.net client. Simply select Heroes of the Storm, then click "Redeem a Code", located above the news reel for the game.

Rules

The rules are as follows:

  • You may comment, discuss and communicate as you wish, but keep in mind that helping anyone else to solve a riddle might let them get the code ahead of you. Do this at your own risk.
  • The contest is a purely first come, first served basis. If someone solves the riddles before you, they will claim the code before you.
  • There is only one winning combination.
  • If you do manage to claim the code, make sure to let us know via private message. Do not spoil the activity of solving the riddles for those that do not wish to have it spoiled.
  • There is no time limit on this contest. It will end as soon as someone claims the code.

The Riddles

The riddles to be solved and the codes accompanying them are as follows:

Quote

Age matters little to one of great power, the breaking of order made many glower. To move without delay is truly a mystery, but in secret it was done by someone in my history. Who am I?

Once you have solved this riddle, you should match your answer to the codes in the spoiler box below, before moving on to the second riddle:

What does "glower" mean? Is it a noun, a verb or an adjective?

If you glower, you scowl at someone angrily. Hope this helps 🙂

I'm too fucking dumb to understand how to solve these. I guess I'll just spend the next 8 hours trying every combination.

The easiest way to solve this that I came up with was taking a character list next to me and thinking who fits the description of the riddle. The problem is that the first one is really difficult.

We have a solution and it has now been confirmed by the user that it was through solving, not brute forcing!

For those of you that didn't get a chance or missed out on the code this time, we'll definitely look into doing more of these in the future if people enjoyed it. Don't worry, it will be back!

If you DID enjoy it, please do let me know!

I'm truly amazed someone got it this quickly, because I really tried to make them difficult. If you are wondering what the solution is, it is in this spoiler tag:

Spoiler

First one is Li-Ming, second one is Tyrande.

Li-Ming is 19, one of the youngest in the Nexus, so she isn't letting her age stop her from being incredibly powerful. She was a terrible student and broke every rule possible, choosing to become a Wizard, not a Mage, which pissed people off. Teleport in D3 is on a cooldown, but for Sorceress in D2, it wasn't. She has a quote in HoTS where she says her teacher knew how to teleport constantly but never told her.

Tyrande is loved by Night Elves as a leader, but she is incredibly afraid of becoming like Azshara, who took it a step too far and treated herself as a goddess to be worshipped. She leads the Night Elves as their Priestess of Elune and faction leader, but also uses the Owl in game that works as a scouting tool. She once said to Malfurion that she didn't have the luxury of sleeping through disasters like he did, referencing when he was in the Emerald Dream and such.

Once again, if you liked it, let us know! We'll do our best to make sure there are more things like this for our users to have some fun with 🙂

Wow I didn't even take #1 as an option, I thought we we're talking about someone really old.

Also, I was sure Dark Lady was the second one. Goes to show how little I know about Warcraft lore.

Anyway, this was really fun. I hope I get to rack my brain with similarly possible and not guesswork reliant riddles. Hey diddle diddle, bring me more riddles.

Whelp, that was fast. Whoever solved these really know their stuff about the lore.

I was trying to make sure that the first clue pointed that way! 😛

I'm glad you enjoyed it though, I'll definitely look to do this again, with a few more clues and prizes involved!

I saw the riddles only now. I liked them.

The first one was pretty hard considering I know next to nothing about the lore. But the age requirement alone cuts a lot of characters (being either very young or very old), and I was actually thinking of various mages (including Li Ming) and then realizing that I don't know the age of any of them, so I started thinking of Li Li and Deckard Cain too 😅

 As for the second one, I had absolutely no clue whatsoever except that it was not a Starcraft or Overwatch character, which is... not very useful.

My only lead towards the first one was Chromie ("time" "power") have almost 0 knowledge of Diablo lore. For the 2nd one, I was sure it was Malfurion (from the sleeping part), I read too fast into it. Oh well, close enough :p

Really like riddles, yeah, please do more :3

Sorry about that! Moving forward, for future versions of this, I'm thinking of an announcement post with the riddles being given at time intervals that are announced beforehand, maybe with prizes for solving single riddles as well as all of them.

We'll have to see how we can improve!

Cool idea, it's a shame it was solved this quickly. I got Tyrande right from the start, with both the "love" and "sleep" hints, but I would never have guessed Li-Ming, because I was thinking about the older (or immortal) heroes such as Gul'dan and Alextraza.

Also, I think it would be a good idea to give the riddles first, and the options/codes on a set date later on. This way everybody has some time to think and a fairer chance at winning.

Yeah I just read this post too. I thought #1 answer was Gul'dan cause I figured he's basically immortal with his fell power and I with 'glower' I figured cause the fell energy gave all the orcs 'glowing' green skin.

For the second one I figured it was either Illdan or Malfurion cause of the love and sleep for a long time in the hint. If I had got to try those and didn't work I probably would have tried Tyrande then since she's the reason for there love in the first place. Which she being the answer I suppose makes more since cause of that in the first place.

Still was fun to read and give it a guess before finding out the answer.

      In Storm League, rank is always updated by taking the change in rating and determining the equivalent number of rank points to reward. While the Heroes team is quite happy with how it turned out, the system is causing problems in Bronze 5.
      In Bronze 5, players gain/lose far fewer points per game than players in other leagues and divisions. The underlying problem makes it harder to climb out of Bronze 5 and causes frustration and bad gameplay experience. The team is working on ways to improve it and provided an explanation of why this is happening.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With the launch of Storm League season 1 we have seen a dramatic improvement in rank distribution. One of the primary changes in this release was in how rank is determined. In the past, rank and rating were two entirely different concepts, both of which were updated differently after each game. It was very common for a player's rank and rating to diverge throughout each season which could cause the matchmaking system to struggle to find games.
      With the changes introduced this season, rank is always updated by taking the change in rating and determining the equivalent number of rank points to reward. This leaves very few ways rating and rank can diverge and results in most players being shown a number equivalent to their rating.
      Overall, we are very happy with how the changes are looking; however, we are aware of the inconsistencies players are currently experiencing in Bronze 5. With the new design, players in Bronze 5 will gain/lose far fewer points per game than players in all of the other leagues and divisions. The reason for this is a bit technical but we wanted to take the opportunity to elaborate on what's going on.
      Under the hood, matchmaking rating is simply a number on a bell curve. Every league and division encompasses a range of values on the same curve. For example, if the overall bell curve ranges from -10.0 to 10.0 and the range 1.0 to 1.5 maps to Gold 1, then a player with a rating of 1.25 will have the equivalent rank of Gold 1 & 500/1000 points. These numbers are intentionally made up as the real ones are always subject to change but the idea is the same.
      The reason for the decrease in points awarded in Bronze 5 is that the range of ratings that maps to Bronze 5 is much larger than other divisions. The difference is that this much larger range of ratings still maps to the same number of rank points. As a result, despite being rewarded the same change in matchmaking rating, the rank points awarded may be lower. This is visualized by the graph below:
      We understand that this inconsistency is a negative experience for players so we will be exploring some ways to improve it.
      Thanks for participating in Storm League and providing your feedback!
