    Yeah, same here ;/ I entered. Was the entries randomly selected or they were biased and chose some people they knew?

    ¡Felicidades Zzad! And everyone else too!

    Good picks. 

    I was deeply moved by L0C0Man's story...

    I was under the assumption it was random, but by reading other posts and the winners' responses, it seems to be more "how much thought you put into it" along with happy throw up stories and such.

    Can we get confirmation this was actually "random" ?

    Jesus, is this really happening?! :D My entry was really the greatest moment of my MMO life but I never would've thought I can win :P Never actually won anything to this day. I'm so happy, too bad I bought MoP like 3 days ago in normal version, should've waited :D Anyways, thanks for acknowledging my entry and giving me the prize. I'm a big fan of your site by the way, keep up the good work guys!

    Congrats Zzad.. Sorry to hear of your friend passing.. Good to know you still game on as some would have stopped..

    Xpac is cool so far, better paced and now too much different faction rep to grind, if you aren't a raider or pvp'er.. think you'll like it just don't burn out..

    I chose the ones I felt were best from our forum entries and Som chose our winners on Facebook and Twitter. :)

    EDIT: There was never any indication that these entries would be selected at random. Why have anyone share their stories with us if it was just a random selection?

    Just Received this email from MMORPG.COM:

    Hi there!

    Unfortunately, we are not going to be able to honor your prize due to associated shipping costs. Please accept our apologies! :(

    Regards,

    Is this True??

    C´mon i don´t live in some lost village in Africa....i live in a main City in Europe!!!!

    As i said in a email sent to MMORPG Community Manager....I´ll run with shipping costs...... :/

    I just can´t believe this is happening after beeing awarded as the Grand Price Winner!!!

    PLZZZ get in touch with me...this is so unfair :(

  • ZzadZzad Palma de MallorcaPosts: 1,332Member Uncommon

    So even after offering myself to pay for the shipping cost of my "Grand Price" the only response i got from MMORPG.COM is:

    Really sorry, but this isn't possible. :(

    Regards,

    Michael Bitton
    Community Manager, MMORPG.com

     

    I feel CHEATED.

    No where in the contest was said only US citizens could participate...

    I live in Spain (Europe),....and i´ll gladly pay for shipping costs to get my Signed copy of MoP...

    I just don´t understand WHY you cannot send it to me????!!!

    Never expected this from MMORPG.COM...............................

    Welcome to the club there Zzad. I live in Poland and I got the same message yesterday. The only thing that saves me in this situation is that I got a friend in the US that I can tell them to send it to.

    I don't know what are you guys playing here but It sure is a damn coincidence that from 3 people that won the grand prize 2 of them were in a place where you won't send them their due prizes.

    Europe is not some remote village in Africa, just like Zzed said, so I don't see a problem in sending two boxes to people who actually won something and cover the shipment money (I'm sure you guys have some sort of income), and if you can't then you probably shouldn't be running contests when you can't afford to send the winners their prizes...

    This is indignating :(((

    I even told them i would pay for shipping costs...and still they will not send it to me ....

    I don´t believe them, They didn´t give me a reason at all...just "this isn't possible."

    ...i guess some friends of them got "our" Prices....................... ¬¬

     

  • banadonabanadona IlawaPosts: 16Member
    I really can't think of any other words than outrageous to describe what has happened. Can't really find a reason why they wouldn't let you pay for the shipment and get your prize other than that it already went to some brother/friend of theirs. Either this or someone fucked up and they decided that the winners should actually take the blow and not the person that actually is to blame for this. If I would run such a website I would have made the man responsible pay the shipment costs for the people that won. Either this or just fucking make an effort and make it possible for those people to get it some way, suggest some options of solving this problem other than "we are really, really sorry. we can't do anything about it".

    yes!! very nice indeed :)

    i´m more than impressed by Blizzard.

  • ZzadZzad Palma de MallorcaPosts: 1,332Member Uncommon

    I re-open this post  because i want to publicly THANK  BLIZZARD.

    As you can see in the first post,i won the "Signed Collector Edition of MoP" in a contest held  by this site....i never got the prize from MMORPG.COM since all of the sudden...they decided only US residents were elegibles for such honor....and i live in Europe, in Spain.

    Few weeks later i received an e-mail from Blizzard´s Game Master Gourgetion telling me that they saw on the forums what happened....and that even though it was not a contest held by Blizzard itself,they wanted to ship my prize by themselves because they felt i was the legit winner.... we are all fellow gamers,they told me ;)

    I must confess i thought it could be a scam at first...i´m not used at big companies like Blizzard taking THIS MUCH care for their fans/costummers/people...even when they are not "forced" to do so.

    But man, i got my prize today on the mail !!!

    Blizzard sent it to me as they promised! Even though they didn´t have to....

    No wonder why Blizzard still nº1 company when it comes to support & caring for their community. As you can see It´s a very well deserved fame.

    I just wanted to THANK BLIZZARD for this amazing "Signed Collector Edition" !!!! And specially to Game Master Gourgetion,who really worked hard to make this possible checking all details,and supporting me to verify my identity.

    TY SO MUCH!!!!

    Your present is finally at home!

    here is a pic  :)
