Competition Time! [Finished]

And the winner is...

It's been two weeks, and we're finally ready to announce the winners. We'll start with the ArmA II Combined Operations prizes. As a recap, here are the questions along with their answers:

1/ ARMA & ARMA II are considered the spiritual successors of which videogame series?

It was Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis, although we will accept simply Operation Flashpoint as an answer as well.

2/ Who publishes ARMA II in Russia?

The answer is Akella, who are also behind the recently released Disciples III game. A bit of a random question, but easily found out by consulting Wikipedia.

3/ Who reviewed the original ARMA game for Strategy Informer?

This was a trick question. The original ArmA: Armed Assault game (Known as ArmA: Combat Operations in North America and our database) wasn't actually reviewed by anyone. Not sure why, but there you go.

So there are the answers. Out of those who participated, we used a random selection sequence and are proud to announce the following winners:

stuntkid

noobster

Raviel

Congratulations guys! Well done! You'll be receiving a PM from me shortly.

Now, onto the bundle: As you'll remember this was for a copy of both Armada 2526, and King Arthur: The Role Playing Wargame. There were no hoops to jump through for this one, so we are equally pleased to announce the following winners:

bosnian_dragon

Cryptex

Bonearc

Congratulations to you guys as well! You'll also be getting a PM from me.

I'm afraid that's all for today folks. The other King Arthur copies have been awarded via other means. Keep an eye out in the coming days as we may just have some more prizes for you.

They say Red Bull gives you wings, but what about Liberty?

-----------------------------------------

It's that time again folks - competition time! It's been a long time coming, but we have some more prizes to give away to you lovely people. Partnering with Iceberg Interactive, 505 Games and Paradox Interactive, we have a whole bunch of goodies to give away.

Five lucky winners will each get a copy of Armada 2526 and King Arthur: The Role-Playing Wargame in a nice little bundle. We also have five extra additional copies of King Arthur to give away, as well as three copies of ARMA II: Combined Operations which contains both ARMAII and the recently released expansion - Operation: Arrowhead.

This competition will be in three parts: one for the five bundles, one for the other for the extra copies of King Arthur, and a final trivia section for ARMA II.

Readers can only win one copy of each game, so you may participate in the Bundle OR the Arthur section on its own, and then in addition the ARMA II section if you wish.

Note: Competition is for European readers only. Staff are excluded from participating.


The Bundle

The deal is this: Only people that contribute to the community will be rewarded, and those that end up being the most active will claim the above mentioned prizes. So what does this mean? It means that you will need to register, if you haven't already, and start posting comments around the main pages of Strategy Informer. For example; the news, reviews, interviews, and preview pages. So check back on our main page for new stuff and post comments on anything that might interest you, it's that easy!

Comments must be good quality, and not spam or one word responses. If your comments are good enough with both quantity and quality, you stand a high chance of being selected.

To participate in this sectiont, please post a comment below along the lines of "I'm in" so we can track your comments!


King Arthur

For the extra copies of King Arhtur, you will still need to be registered, but this one won't revolve around comments. From today until the end of the competition, we shall ask five different questions that will be buried within five different news posts. First person to send me (JustCommunication) a PRIVATE MESSAGE over the site's messaging service will win.

These will be quick-fire questions connected to the site and/or gaming, and may require a little bit of digging. The winner of each round will be replied to, so if you don't hear from me, you weren't first.


ARMA II: Combined Arms

For the three copies of ARMA II: Combined Arms, we have these three trivia questions:

1/ ARMA & ARMA II are considered the spiritual successors of which videogame series?

2/ Who publishes ARMA II in Russia?

3/ Who reviewed the original ARMA game for Strategy Informer?

In order to participate in this section, you must chose one question to answer, and then either tag it at the end of your comment below if you're participating in 'The Bundle' or just a stand alone comment if not. Winners will be chosen at random a la the Bundle section.

------------

If there are any problems, or you're not sure on what to do, feel free to send me an email directly at Joe (at) strategyinformer (dot) com

Good luck! This competition will end one July 27th.

Just as an example:

If you were participating in both the Bundle, and the ARMA II Trivia you would say:

"I'm in for the Bundle"

and then:

"Question 1 - Answer: etc..."

IF you were just participating in the bundle, you would just say "I'm in", and if you were just participating in ARMA II, you would just list the question.

If you're participating in the King Arthur stand-alone section, then you don't need to do anything, but remember you can't participate in the stand-alone AND the bundle.

Any questions, email them to us, don't ask them here. We need to keep this clean so we can track who's in.

Was the competition posted in the forums? There's quite a lot of activity over there and it might benefit these comps.
By JustCommunication (SI Core) on Aug 03, 2010

Not in its own thread, but I pointed towards it on the chat box. I'll make sure the next one gets its own thread though.
