Ugh, never win anything ever. Tired of playing the game on minimum graphics and cannot afford to upgrade. Was hoping I could've got the system, but grats to those who won.
The winner only posted in one of the 4 threads....?
The winner wrote only a sentence.. I'm sure plenty of people said Glory of the hero.. what makes how they got it so special?
Check how long I've been a member. I just have never had a reason to post ;-)
Grats to all the winners. Thank you Wowhead and ZAM for making such a amazing contest possible.
Gratz to the winners :)
Soooo... why did we go through all the trouble to write an extensive, well-founded post explaining what we like and why we like it, if we could just have made an account just for the contest (the 2nd place winner did, by the way) and write something along the lines of "I liek nafarrian lolz"?Don't get me wrong, I like the contest and I'm really happy for the winners, and I don't deserve it any more than they do, but I think it's just a bit silly. Maybe it would've been a lot of work to actually read all the entries, but I do think maybe you should've filtered out those kind of posts and selected possible candidates, and draw from those.
Meh.Random is random.Did it irk me that the "favorite encounter" answer was practically the same as mine, only "warlock themed" and about 13 pages later?... actually, it did.However, if the positions were reversed, I'm sure I'd be fine with it... so I'll have to settle for being a hypocrite. *shrugs*
Jealous of Duerma -->Would have loved to replace my comp for free. Big time grats to you lucky SOB's for winning.Course big time thanks to Ashelia / Wowhead for the chance and fun.
Gratz to the winners
I actually thought you guys were reading all of the entries! lol, that kind of irks me in a way because a lot of people put a lot of passion into their entries (so many of them were so fun to read)... and someone writes a one sentence entry and wins. IDK, it's kind of a let down, but my bad for not reading all of the rules super great.Maybe next time you guys do a contest, don't do random draws? I think it would add a lot to the contests if you actually got judges and stuff. You could add a winners section to the site (or something) to showcase some of the great, amazing stories people have had on WoW instead of, "I liked so and so achievement." Then not as many people would just sign up for the sake of signing up. :S Hey, have you guys ever done a drawing contest? Or a poetry, fanfiction, etc.. contest? That would be exciting and I would think that the entries that would win would be well deserved. :3 Even a caption contest would be super fun ^___^
Somehow this seems more like a lottery than a contest.
Exxaaaccttlllyyy.Lottery is def. more like it.
We read all of them and picked the ones we liked most for the mice (or ones we just agreed with). I probably read about ~12k entries by the end and it took a lot of my personal time =\\We randomed for the PC/headset and mouse combo because it's too hard to pick that level of prize without bias. I would give the PC to someone who posted here a lot if I could and who tried hard... but that's not what sponsors would want--it's biased and unfair, why would people enter if they knew the CM was just going to pick someone they personally liked?I feel like the winners we have show a good range of people. Some are new to the site but will probably stick around, others are older to the site.
Grats to Duerma on the grand prize and to all the other winners too. Thank you Wowhead for this great contest.
super jelly. grats Duerma! Of course its all random and luck... would you want to read and keep track of about 17,000 posts in 5 days? hahaedit: oh wow! didnt know you read that many of em... jeez gj then! :D
Oh alrighty! I thought all of them were randomized, but that's cool. You guys are pretty dedicated. I can see where picking winners would sort of be kind of hard to do.Just so you know I really appreciate it that you guys do these contests. I was just kind of thrown off a little.Congrats to the winners :3
