Countdown to Burning Crusade: Day 13

It's hard to believe, but we're coming close to the end of our Countdown to Burning Crusade contest extravaganza -- which means it's almost time to get our expansion on! We still have the three grand prize contests left to come (be sure to get your entries in, mkay?), and a few lingering prizes from earlier contests to award, so it ain't over until Princess Theradras sings -- stick with us!

Today is the last day you've got it easy. We're giving away the last 60-day game card, and all you have to do is comment in this thread for a chance to win. Yep, just an easy ol' /Need roll is going to take this one home. You have until tomorrow, Sunday January 14, at 3pm EST to get your comment in. Happy /rolling!

Countdown to Burning Crusade: Day 8

We gave you some screenshots to caption last week in our Countdown to Burning Crusade, but this week it's your turn to provide us with some screenshots. We're going to do a series of three "best screenshot of location" contests, and we're going to give you some extra lead time on a couple of them, so listen up for the appropriate deadlines. For today, we want to see your best screenshot from Feralas -- anywhere within the zone is kosher, but you'll have to find a way to make it unique, funny, or particularly beautiful to catch our eye. You have until 2pm EST tomorrow, January 9 to send your best Feralas screenshot to us at countdowntobc AT wow.com for a chance to win the analog companion to WoW: the World Of Warcraft The Roleplaying Game. You must include the word "Feralas" in the subject of your email, and your image must be less than 5MB in size.

You've got a bit more lead time for the next two "best of location" contests. You have until Wednesday, January 10 at 3pm EST to send us your best screenshot of the Caverns of Time, which you should be able to access (sans the instances) even if you're not in the beta. Send us the best screenshot to countdowntobc AT wow.com with "Caverns of Time" in the subject of your email and you'll take home a 60-day game card. And if you haven't been one of the lucky winners of a 60-day prepaid card so far, you'll have one more chance this weekend.

The last "best of location" contest will be two, two, two contests in one: for "Tale of Two Cities" we want you to send in your best/funniest/most original screenshot of either Ironforge or Orgrimmar (you have to choose one and only one -- no double entries allowed). The best Ironforge screenshot winner will walk away with an Alliance crest t-shirt in your choice of size, while the best Orgrimmar screenshot will take home a Horde crest tee; we'll publish the winners and runners up on Friday, so you'll need to get your entries in to countdowntobc AT wow.com by 3pm EST, Thursday January 11. You must include "Tale of Two Cities" in the subject of your email, and all screenshot submissions must be less than 5MB in size. Good luck to all!

Countdown to Burning Crusade: Day 7


Horde lovers, yesterday you had a chance to win an I survived Barrens chat t-shirt, and today is the day of the Alliance. The same deal applies as yesterday -- you need to provide the best caption for the image above in order to take home a Team Paladins shirt in your choice of size. We'll choose 10 finalists from all the entries received by 2pm EST tomorrow, January 7, and put it to a vote to let the popular opinion determine the winner. Happy captioning!

P.S. Don't forget to get your entries in for the lyrics, fan art and machinima contests!

Countdown to Burning Crusade: Day 6


We're 10 days away from the big day, and we're counting it down with a contest every day. You still have two hours to get your entry in to win a 60-day time card for the low, low price of four little words.

Today, it's a Horde-themed caption contest -- Alliance diehards, you'll get your chance tomorrow. This time, we're going to pick a slate of 10 finalists and have you folks vote to pick the best caption, so you'll have no excuse to flame us over the winner. So get cracking and come up with the best caption for the image above, and hope your fellow WoW fans have the good sense to pick yours as the winner of today's prize: an I survived Barrens chat t-shirt in your choice of size. You have until 1pm EST tomorrow, January 7 to enter the best caption. Go!

Countdown to Burning Crusade: Day 4 winner

We've got a winner for the day 4 Leeroy t-shirt contest: commenter 170 wins the lucky need roll, and we wish March and her boyfriend a happy unwrapping.

You've still got some time to get your four word entry in to win a 60-day prepaid time card, and do join us later this afternoon to check out what today's Countdown to Burning Crusade contest will be.

Filed under: Contests, The Burning Crusade

Countdown to Burning Crusade: Day 5

You still have 45 minutes to win a Leeroy t-shirt. Today's Countdown to Burning Crusade contest also brings you yet another chance to score a 60-day game card, and to take it home you'll have to give us the best description of World of Warcraft -- the only catch is, you only get four little words in which to do it. We've stolen borrowed the idea from our friends at Second Life Insider (you know, that other world) -- you'll have to boil down your expansive experience of WoW into a four-word extract and leave it in this thread by 3pm EST tomorrow, January 6. We'll pick the best four-word summary of World of Warcraft to win a 60-day game card.

Ready? You're up!
