Guide Contest - 2 Days Left
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!

So I went about my time, and just recently re-registered (I had to make another e-mail JUST to do it, because my main e-mail is taken even though my first registration never went through).

    Just because I don't post on these forums, doesn't mean I am any less deserving than someone who posts all the time.

    I read mmo-champion EVERY DAY. Sorry if it offends you that I don't contribute.

    G'day.

    Grats to all the winners! Can't win if you don't play!
    Was a pleasure doing this contest! Looking forward to more.

    Probably just the same users creating multiple accounts. I don't blame them, I just didn't feel like winning the contest was worth it. They did so they win. Grats, people shouldn't have any hard feelings. It isn't really cheating since it isn't stated in the rules or anything. So they took advantage of the system, so what? It happens in real life every day. Time for a fresh year.

    Did anyone get their price yet? I've replied to the PM but didn't receive any answer so far!

    I've been reading MMO Champion for ages. I never created an account because I've never really had all that much to say, not because I didn't enjoy following the community. As a long term reader, I think I had a right to participate in the contest. Nowhere in the rules did it say that it was a members-only-must-have-posted-x-times type of contest. *shrug*

    And no nFac, I haven't received anything yet either though I did respond to the PM. I am guessing that it is just taking a little time to make all the arrangements for the items.
