Update #2 - Obviously, one post per user.
Update - Yes, all languages are allowed for the giveaway. Any dungeon is fine (including non-Cata dungeons)

MMO-Champion "Be nice, not naughty!" Giveaway
It's almost Christmas! All the WoW players around the world are happy and busy being nice to everyone they know and don't know in-game! ... Ok, most of you aren't that nice and I heard that Santa's "naughty" list is getting longer and longer with so many people gearing up in PuG/random instances.

That's why Christmas and the holidays is a wonderful time to change that behavior, especially if you can get free stuff just by being nice!

Prizes
A lot of these items were kindly offered by WoWTCGLoot.com, thanks to them!


I never joke when it comes to being nice, and this is definitely the biggest giveaway to date!


Giveaway Rules
This giveaway is very simple and will require you to do 3 simple things.

1. Join a random instance group through the /lfd tool, any level is fine it doesn't have to be a Cataclysm dungeon. When you arrive in the instance you have to:
  • Say hello to the members of the group. (Any language is fine)
  • Wish them Happy Holidays/a Merry Christmas!

2. You have to finish the instance with that same group, I'm expecting you to kill the last boss and finish the instance instead of quitting after the first wipe. Let's say that two members are allowed to change over the course of the instance because you can't control other people ragequitting over stupid things (but it won't happen if you're nice!)

At the end of the instance:
  • Say goodbye to the members of the group and thanks them for their time.
  • Wish them Happy Holidays/a Merry Christmas again!

3. Post on the MMO-Champion "Be nice, not naughty!" Giveaway - Screenshots Thread the two screenshots of 1. and 2. to show the world how nice you are. After you're done with that, you will officially be on the list of the people nice enough to be picked for free stuff! (One post per user allowed)

4. Winners will be picked on December 26th at 08:00PM GMT based on their post numbers. If there are 2437 replies at the end of the giveaway, I will do a /random 1-2437 (either in-game or on a random number generator site) and will select winners based on their post number!

I will finish this post with the most adorable artwork ever, posted on the forums by Equilibrioception. Good luck to everyone, and Merry Christmas!

    LOL be nice to pugs.... That'll be a very small competition then after seeing what they're like now, screaming "HEALS" and "NOOB!"

    I already see it before me - Five people in the same group everyone wishing the others Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays at the start and end of the run for this contest, and then raging and yelling at each other during the actual instance. Making people act nice on screenshots is nice.

    Heh, nice one. Too bad I'm doing only guild runs now.

    Start the instance, "Merry Christmas" blah blah blah, take screen shot. During run, act like complete douchebag. End of run "thanks for the good run, Merry Christmas" blah blah blah, take screen shot. Of course, I will be the one that puts the "you acted like a total douchebag the whole run and NOW you want to be nice??" comment in your screenshot.

    You'd be surprised how easy it is to get people to act nice when you're nice at the beginning of an instance. if you check out the first submission, you will notice that it can work just fine.

    This is awesome, thank you so much to Boub for doing this.

    Even if it's just for two days, we might actually see some PuGs being nice to each other for a change. I hope it works anyway and it might encourage me to actually remember to say 'Hello' and 'Goodbye' at the very least from now on, I have a habit of staying silent during PuGs.

    That's nice to see. Although, if you look closely the other four were guild mates... :P

    Happy Holidays.

    Just thought maybe you should specify if its allowed to run with guild groups bibi seeing the first 2 replies are.

    Is it one chance per user? Not sure it says in the instructions if you're allowed multiple group screenshots or just one.

    You are judging that on a tol'vir run and not dm/sfk/sc :>

    I can't get bads to act normal, so never mind me being nice to a warlock who doesn't understand a yes/no question or a hunter who doesn't grasp the idea of 'put trap in front of him so he walks into it.' "IMMUNE!" - yes idiot, the magic field makes them immune just like on the previous attempt :/

    I'll be nice to them if they show me they understand the basic concepts of cc and answering a yes/no question when presented to them.

    Happy Holidays everyone!

    Are we allowed to submit multiple screen over the 24,25,26 either with new post or edit your old one, not to greater the chance but to share the love?
