Here, they announced the winner of the WoW laptop that this site gave away and here is the link to their weblogs profile. http://www.wowinsider.com/profile/1183764/
Happy now? Saying that you suspect these sites of not being honest about these giveaways because TB is defending them("Further, all this defensiveness around it makes me wonder even more. After all, if there was nothing to hide..."), all because you cant take the time to do 5 minutes of searching is really pathetic.
And yes Blizzard lists who won because they ARE subject to United States sweepstakes laws unlike this site.
"It really does not seem as though "harassing" is an issue anyone else worried about."
Well maybe WoW insider IS concerned about it and that's up to them to decide. When Blizzard posts their winners they do it as such http://www.blizzard.com/us/inblizz/contests/artcontest2006/secondaryprizewinners.html
It is just a persons name. There is no way to easily figure out their characters name and harass them in game, no easy way to know if you have the right John Smith if you tried to google them.
But you see how easy it was for me to find the winner of the laptop and if I wanted to harass them every time they posted on the Weblogs network it wouldn't be that hard. And yes TB went on the defensive cause you attacked the honesty and integrity of this site and the people who operate it ("I often wonder if anyone wins some of these contests at all.") in your initial comment.
Lighten up. Just cause you don't win doesn't mean no one does.
Jul 30th 2008 3:02PM My exact same thoughts. I think we can all agree with Procris that he should get an overhaul before Wrath goes live. But from what I understand there are a lot of placeholder models/skins up in Northrend at this point so we can only hope his is a placeholder as well.
Jul 30th 2008 2:13PM lol yeah I became sorely tempted to go through and add all my /played together but, well frankly I don't like crying myself to sleep. In all seriousness though, Schramm had a good point. You shouldn't feel all that bad about the time you've invested in this game as long as you had fun.
Jul 30th 2008 2:10PM Aww common Mike it wasn't THAT bad.......ok yeah I couldn't get through that with a strait face :P
Great show as always and I really applaud the way you guys avoided as many spoilers as possible. My journey through Northrend will be all the sweeter for it.
Jul 30th 2008 1:11PM Must be nice to have it available in your area.
Jul 29th 2008 12:27PM My thoughts exactly Fernando. I loved RE4 on both the cube and Wii. Can't wait for this one :)
Jul 28th 2008 5:50PM Well ok, you prolly wont be carrying around the lowest 2 once your 70, but still that's another 2 or 3 items for mages.
Jul 28th 2008 5:49PM @Thrashnak You also forget the item slots mages need for each of their mana gems, of which there are 5
Jul 28th 2008 5:22PM @DangerMouse Cheese Nips suck!!!!
wait...what were we talking about? ;)
