::: OLDER POST INFO :::
UPDATE: 5/2 We've got a brand new update! over on youtube for you guys to check out!
MOST RECENT UPDATE: 5/2
Click this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TA526KteXeo For the most recent update about the giveaway. It is being held on MAY 12th! The radio station is out and I just want to get this over with. Sorry about the long delay in information! Hope you can all make it.
Hey everyone! I'm Shady Tradesman, and I have too much money in Guild Wars. First world problem, I know. In order to solve this problem, I'm giving ALL of it away. This is a pre-thread for a giveaway event that's taking place mid-April. We'll have an exact date (as well as some more very exciting news) in the near future!
This is a giveaway event in the making! Please don't worry about posting your In-game-names. Simply show up at the event when I announce a date.
The main idea behind this is that I'll be trying to give away as many HOM points as possible by only giving away items that are HOM-ready. That means destroyer weapons, oppressors weapons, tormented weapons, hero armors, minis, and similar items.
What a little bit more info? You can watch Quality Discourse Presents: Unpopular Show ep. 1!. This video has a good outline about the event. Also, we're looking for feedback, so please watch it and comment! If you'd rather not listen to our antics, click here to skip to just the part about the giveaway. We've also got a brand new update over on youtube for you guys to check out.
As of right now the date is unannounced. I'm still working out the details with a certain radio station. We should have the update for you guys ready by NEXT WEEK. Chances are it will take place in mid April.
It will be located in Eye of The North outpost AE 1. The only people who are qualified to receive items are those whose HOM is at less than 30/50. Please spread the word! Having more people at the event won't get you any less money, so don't be greedy .
So far the contributors are:
Myself with 1750 ecto worth of destroyer/tormented/oppressor weapons, unded minis, hero armors, and more.
oppressors curses focus
oppressors curses staff
unded mini cobalt scarra x2
unded mini hydra
unded mini jungle troll
unded mini fire imp
But why, Shady? Why?
Because I got 45/50 in my HOM and I don't really like grinding, so I'm not going to play any more Guild Wars
How did you get all that money?
I was the grand prize winner in the 2010 Guild Wars Halloween art contest. I sold my Mad King's Guard mini (His name was Honur. Nevar forget. ;_; ) for tons of money.
What is Quality Discourse and who is Hawful?
Quality discourse is our start-up youtube channel, and Hawful is just some guy who, so far, has done 90% of the work in putting a video on youtube. We'll be covering more news about the event on that channel as it comes up. Keep tuned!
"Quality Discourse Presents: Unpopular Show" sucks.
Glad to hear you have a strong opinion. Please post comments with constructive crit on the Youtube video page or message me here. We need to hear feedback.
Have you ever actually been asked these questions?
No. It's just an easy way to cover tangental and optional information.
What's the grand prize?!
I can't tell you guys yet. But stay tuned, I'll be announcing it soon. I will say it's worth somewhere between 100 and 200 ecto, though. Nothing CRAZY, but certainly something!
I want to contribute!
Shh! I'm not allowed to ask for any money in this forum. PM me and we can work out the deets. I'll append you into the list of donators. The more items I get, the bigger I can make this event.
Please post here if you have any questions, comments, or anything to say about the event!!
Mod edit: Please do not post your IGN. This is a giveaway EVENT, not your standard giveaway. Please read the OP before posting!
