Battle for Azeroth Beta Key Contest: Part 1

Recommended Posts

LK2Ltof.jpg

It's time for another beta key giveaway and we've got 150 keys to give away this week! Check out the first part of the giveaway and how to get your chance to win.

For those of you that missed out on our contest last month, we're back with another set of giveaways. We're kicking things off with a screenshot contest this week, with entries having the chance to win one of the 150 keys we are giving out.

How to Enter

In the last competition, we sent users into Darnassus, allowing them to embrace the beauty of the city while completing a timed run around the terraces. This time, we're journeying over to the Horde!

The aim of this competition is to create a screenshot in-game that personifies your feelings towards the Warchief herself, Sylvanas. Whether you are an Alliance player that wants to see the Banshee Queen fall or a Horde player that feels nothing but pride for her, we want to see you paint 1,000 words with your screenshot. Your feelings do not have to align with your faction, however, and you can definitely show us your dislike of your Warchief as a Horde player or love for Sylvanas as an Alliance player!

Once you have your screenshot, submit it to us in a comment reply to this post along with an explanation of the screenshot, but only if you feel it is necessary! If your screenshot already says enough, then it will be enough alone!

Rules and Information

Your screenshot should follow these rules:

  • Screenshots should not be altered with any form of editing program except for cropping as required.
  • Hide your UI (user interface) before taking screenshots (Alt+Z shortcut).
  • The screenshot must come from in-game, not from a model viewer of any kind.
  • Your screenshot does not need to have Sylvanas in it, but should adhere to the theme of "feelings towards Sylvanas".
  • You can use whatever in-game items you wish to improve your screenshot.

The contest will end on (CEST) Sunday, 10th June, 2018 at 11:59 P.M. Once the contest has ended, we will review the screenshots that were submitted and choose 10 that we feel complete the task in the best way. These 10 will be rewarded with a beta key each, while all other entries will be entered into a random draw. The random draw will select 140 users at random that submitted a screenshot and they will be given a beta key.

Note: You cannot win through both options. You can either win as a top 10 entry or a random pick entry, not both.

When selecting the top 10 entries, our decision is final and users cannot dispute the winners based on the content of the screenshots unless it breaks a rule of the contest, such as having photo editing applied.

Good luck to everyone that enters and we can't wait to see your entries!

The contest has now ended. Winners will be notified within the next 48 hours via forum private message.

EDIT (13/06): If you have not received a message from me on the forums, you have unfortunately not won a key. We have contacted all winners.

There will be other chances to win keys later this week and next week, so keep checking the site and our social media for announcements about those competitions going live.

Below is an entry that I thought deserved a special mention, since the small details on it made me laugh enough that it made it into the top 10 of entries. It comes from user @Nakko and contains a spoiler for Battle for Azeroth, so only view if you are comfortable with that. The pet's name really sealed the deal for this entry!

The screenshot came with the quote: "Revenge for my little pet".

To all who entered, thank you for doing so and we're sorry that you didn't receive a key this time. Fingers crossed for the next competition!

      We have two Corruption fixes today, as the Gushing Wound nerf has finally arrived! There's also a fix for Ineffable Corruption and its effect on lockout times for interrupted spell schools.
      June 2 (source)
      Items and Rewards
      Corrupted Items Gushing Wound (Corruption Effect) damage over time effect has been reduced by 35%. Developer’s note: While we try to avoid changes like this outside of regular balance patch intervals, the changes we've made to the Corruption system to make Corruption more targetable and attainable risks turning a rare but powerful Corruption into the optimal choice in nearly every situation. With this reduction in damage, Gushing Wound will remain reasonably powerful in all situations, but will no longer be the most efficient source of damage per Corruption in all situations. Fixed a bug that caused the lockout time of interrupted spell schools to increase when the Ineffable Truth Corruption effect ends.

      Update: The second theory has been debunked, as it's predicted items did not show up in today's list!
      We have some possibly good news for all the people still chasing their perfect Corruption setup (which would be most players everywhere), as two separate theories have come up predicting which Corruptions will appear at what time in MOTHER's shop. Both theories are based on the Corruptions that we've seen so far, so neither has the full info for all Corruptions yet and both predict entries in different time frames, so their predictions don't conflict with each other.
      First off we have Dorovon, from Big Dumb Guild, who has actually datamined some hotfix data and come up with a possible pattern there, with cycles of linked Corruptions repeating. Now, this data might not actually be linked to the vendor at all, but we can't know that yet. From that base, Shiftmage created this spreadsheet which tracks all the upcoming Corruptions, but its first prediction comes on July 16th, as that's when the supposed "cycle" will start repeating.


      An additional problem here is that even if the data is linked to the vendor, it might simply randomize the order once it comes to the cycle reset point. We won't know whether any of this is reliable until June 16th, when the first prediction will either come true or not. You can check out the spreadsheet here for more details, and read a more detailed analysis of the datamining itself here.
      *The below theory has been proved to be incorrect*
      The second theory is much simpler and we'll find out whether it's correct a whole lot sooner - tomorrow on the next reset, in fact! Limit's Imfiredup has created a much more direct prediction, potentially figuring out the pattern for (only) the stat-based Corruptions.

      We simply keep in mind we're now on cycle 4, which would indicate the next reset, coming tomorrow, should have Expedient 1 and Versatile 2, so it won't take long to see if this is correct. Just so it's easier to keep track, cycle 5 would be (US) Tuesday's reset, aka 02.06, 6 would be Friday 05.06, 7 would be Tuesday 09.06 and cycle 8 would be Friday 12.06.
      You can check out how Imfiredup came to these number in the clip below:


      Now, obviously both of these have a lot going against them, and it's all very speculative at this point, but it'll be pretty exciting to see if either of them managed to get it right. Perhaps Blizzard will even see the interest players have in actually knowing when which Corruption will appear and share the correct schedule themselves?

      Dredwing mounts are bat-like creatures that are probably native to Revendreth given that the whole zone has a vampire vibe to it. Check out our preview of the mounts for more details.
      The mount comes in four colors: green, purple, red, and stone.
      Silvertip Dredwing

      PH Purple Dredwing

      Horrid Brood Dredwing
      Harika the Horrid terrorized the denizens of the Forest Ward yet with her demise her broodlings under proper direction can now take this horror to denizens farther afield.

      PH White Dredwing
