You have 2 days left to finalize your guides and make them pretty before the contest ends! I would also like to add that if you had a super awesome guide on our forums and have decent ideas on how to improve it (= put some real work in it and don't just copy paste your post) you are free to submit it. It seemed a little unfair to "ban" from the contest people who already contributed to the community in the first place.
At this point we have over 300 submissions and anyone can win as long as you write something nice! Also, I think we have enough "fun"/5 lines guides ... You can go back to the useful/helpful stuff now
If you didn't hear about the contest before, check this post: MMO-Champion Guide Contest - Win a Mottled Drake and a Riding Turtle!
MMO-Champion "Be nice, not naughty!" - Winners
The "Be nice, not naughty!" Giveaway has been a success and almost 2000 people submitted their screenshot after being nice in-game!
I will contact winners and send them a private message on forum before sending the prizes, mostly to make sure that people didn't just register and forget about it (and also to ask for the region of the mount/pet codes, etc ...). If you want to spy on how it went, I covered my back and recorded it but I doubt it's very interesting.
Thanks again to WoWTCGLoot.com for providing some of the prizes for this contest.
Atramedes Heroic 25 World First Kill by Method
Bosses are getting harder and world first kills happen slower, especially during the holidays! Method was the first guild in the world to defeat Atramedes in heroic mode! It also makes them the first guild with 6 heroic boss kills, congratulations to them!
