WoW Stratics Gold Medal Challenge

Discussion in 'WoW WotLK Beta' started by Eldorian, Aug 7, 2008.

    The real world Olympics are approaching and thousands of people are flocking to Beijing to take part and watch this world wide sports event. Where will you be when this all takes place? What's that? In your computer room playing World of Warcraft? Oh...

    Well, you're actually in luck then as WoW Stratics is giving you a chance to win your very own gold medal! Well, it's not really gold, but there's 5 of them, kind of like the Golden Ticket in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory except <i>this</i> ticket gets you exclusive entry into the <b>Wrath of the Lich King Beta</b> IMMEDIATELY.

    That's right, <b>we're giving away 5 Wrath of the Lich King Beta keys</b> that give you immediate access.

    So what do you have to do to win this coveted prize? Simple. Be creative.

    You simply <a href="http://vboards.stratics.com/newthread.php?do=wowbeta">fill out this submission form</a> on our forums (you must be <a href="http://vboards.stratics.com/forumdisplay.php?f=15">logged in</a> to Stratics or <a href="http://vboards.stratics.com/register.php">register</a> a new forum user account to do so - click <a href="http://vboards.stratics.com/register.php">here</a> to start that process). The submission should be anything that is creative that ties together the Olympics and World of Warcraft.

    Example entries might be a screenshot, a photo, a movie, fan art, fan fiction, etc. Simply attach the piece of work to your submission form. As for the case of movies or larger attachments that the form may not allow you to post, please provide a working URL to the piece instead.

    <b>The contest will then end on Saturday August 16 at 11:59 PM PST</b> and winners will be announced within a couple days from that time. The best 5 will then be contacted via E-mail with their winning beta keys and the winners will be announced on WoW Stratics.

    So you're not the creative type and still want a chance into the beta? Well, we have something also for YOU.

    <b>We also have in our hands 20 Worldwide Invitational cards to give away to 20 lucky winners.</b> These are the same unscratched cards given exclusively to attendees of the Paris event this year. Each card has two unscratched codes. The first code is for an <b>exclusive in game pet</b>, Tyrael the Archangel from Diablo 2. The second code is a beta code that will <b>guarantee you a spot in the Wrath of the Lich King beta</b> (please keep in mind while it guarantees you a spot, we can not guarantee when you will get in).

    To win these cards each day Eldorian will be making a new thread in the WoW General Forums that will be stickied and include the contest name in the title. Each day you will make a post in the thread and gain 1 entry for that day. This will go on for 7 days and you can make a total of 7 entries (you can post multiple times in each thread, but you will only be counted once).

    At the end of the 7 days we will take all entries and have 20 names randomly selected. You can only win one card total even though you have 7 entries.

    So there you have it, you will have two chances this Olympic season to win one of two great prizes that will get you into the Wrath of the Lich King Beta. I bet you're feeling lucky you ended up staying home afterall.

    NOTE: The WotLK Beta key is for the US beta ONLY.
