Win one of 10 Streamer Dream Boxes for Trove!

This giveaway is closed! Congratulations to the winners: Draven Lewis, Warnity, Bill, John Kes, Tahiruua, Chamzeh and Darryl Le Blanc!

Trove recently launched its console versions (XBox One and Playstation 4) and in order to celebrate the occasion, they gave 10 codes for Streamer Dream Boxes to participants of the Creator Program – in other words: We have 10 codes to give away (according to Trion, they’re for all three platforms)! One code will give you one box. However, to make as many players as possible happy, we will only allow one entry per person, so you cannot win more than one code from us (but I’m sure there are lots of other creators with codes, so it’s always a good idea to hunt around for some… also check out Trove streamers on Twitch, as I would assume that streamers who are part of the Creator Program get codes regularly!).

According to Trove wiki, there are 12 items in the box, out of which you will randomly get one that you don’t already have unlocked!

Here is what can be inside (all are pictured above): The Balefire Wings, the Robo Raptor mount or one of the following allies: Wee Dawg, Timely Dismantler, Playful Scytheling, Pandering Panda, Midnight Minion, Lovely Lapin, Li’l Bae, Itty Bitty Bawk, the Cerebral Cephalopod or the Classy Kiwi.

In order to participate, read the following rules and then leave a comment to this post here and answer the question.

The following rules apply.

  1. One entry per person! Please stay fair! Your IP address gets logged when you comment, so we can see if you try to enter several times.
  2. In order to enter, leave a comment containing the answer to the question: If you had to choose one console, would it be the XBox One or the Playstation 4 (or PC either way :p)?
  3. Leave a valid email address when commenting. It will only be used by us for contacting the winners and nothing else! Enter said email address into the “email” field, do not add it to the comment field as that one is public! We will send an email to the winners with the code(s) you’ve won. If your email address is invalid, we may not be able to send you the code!
  4. The giveaway will have a stated deadline. All valid entries (as stated under no. 1 and no. 2) posted before the deadline will be entered into the drawing.
  5. No debating about the outcome! Unless otherwise stated in the respective giveaway, we will randomly choose the winners. This is done by me making a list of all valid entries, re-checking the list to make sure it’s correct and then using random.org to roll for the winner.
  6. You promise not to sell your prize! If you decide you don’t want it after all, give the code to a friend or guildie – for free!

Please note that the codes will expire on April 30, 2017. So if you win one, enter it in your Trion account page before that date!

The giveaway will close on March 26, 2017, at 9pm German time. Winners will be drawn as soon as possible after the deadline. Real life may happen, so please allow me some time to get the codes to you. :)

This giveaway is closed! Winners will be chosen and announced at a later point!

(You can find the German translation below / Scrollt runter für den deutschen Text)

It is this time of the year again: We are having our annual Wintersday Giveaway and ArenaNet gave us some sweet prizes to give away this time.

In order to participate in this giveaway, we ask you to share a scenery screenshot from Guild Wars 2 with us: It has to be a wintery picture, e.g., from the new map Bitterfrost Frontier. But any wintery place will do (especially if you don’t own Heart of Thorns and cannot enter the new map, of course!). Your character may be present in the picture, but for it to be a scenery screenshot, please hide the user interface!

Make sure to read the rules. Here’s the short version again: One entry per person. If there are more participants than prizes, we will choose the best scenery screenshots. If there are more “best screenshots” than prizes, the best screenshots will enter the winning pool and we will randomly choose the winners from that pool. You need to enter before the deadline of December 24, 9 am German time – Winners will be drawn shortly after the deadline (before we’ll leave celebrating Christmas with the family!).

These are the digital prizes:

  • Item Package worth ~ 100 gold, 1 code for a Snowflake Glider, 1 code for a Mini Angry Wintersday Gift & 1 code for a Festive Hat
  • Item Package worth ~ 100 gold, 1 code for a Mini Angry Wintersday Gift & 1 code for a Festive Hat
  • Item Package worth ~ 100 gold and 1 code for a Festive Hat

These are the physical prizes:

  • 1x size L light grey t-shirt with white GW2 logo in front & a HoT lanyard keychain
  • 1x size XL black t-shirt with white charr on it & a HoT lanyard keychain
  • 1x size M black t-shirt with grey/green picture and small green HoT logo
  • 1x size XL black t-shirt with grey/green picture and small green HoT logo
  • 1x size S black t-shirt with metallic green HoT logo in front

Wintersday Giveaway 2016 Guild Wars 2 t-shirts

When leaving a comment, please leave a link to your screenshot (you can upload it here, for example: http://tinypic.com/), and state if you prefer winning a physical prize or a digital one (and please leave your preferred t-shirt size). We will try to distribute prizes according to preference between winners, but can’t guarantee that you’ll get your preferred one. Also, digital prizes will go from first to third prize according to the order winners are drawn. Also please note that in order to send you the t-shirt, we will need to ask you for your address if you have won. The giveaway is open for participants from all over the world and we will pay for the postage unless you’re living in a remote area with insane shipping costs. ;)


Es ist wieder Zeit für unseren jährlichen Wintertag-Giveaway und wir haben ein paar tolle Preise von ArenaNet zur Verfügung gestellt bekommen!

Um am Giveaway teilzunehmen, müsst ihr einen Kommentar mit einem Landschafts-Screenshot aus Guild Wars 2 hinterlassen: Es muss eine winterliche Gegend zu sehen sein, z. B. von der neuen Karte Bitterfrost-Grenzland. Aber jede winterliche Gegend aus Guild Wars 2 zählt (vor allem natürlich für diejenigen unter euch, die das Addon Heart of Thorns nicht haben und die neue Karte deswegen nicht betreten können!). Euer Charakter darf zu sehen sein, aber damit es als Landschafts-Screenshot zählt, müsst ihr das User Interface ausblenden.

Lest bitte außerdem die Regeln. Hier ist die Kurzfassung: Ein Beitrag pro Person. Wenn es mehr Teilnehmer als Preise gibt, werden wir die besten Screenshots auswählen. Wenn es mehr “beste Screenshots” als Preise gibt, werden die besten Screenshots in einem Topf landen und wir werden aus diesem zufällig die Gewinner auswählen. Euren Screenshot müsst ihr vor diesem Datum hier im Kommentarfeld hinterlassen: 24. Dezember, 9 Uhr morgens nach deutscher Zeit – die Gewinner werden kurz danach ausgewählt werden (bevor wir zu unserer Familie verschwinden, um Weihnachten zu feiern!).

Hier sind unsere digitalen Preise:

  • Itempäckchen mit einem ungefähren Wert von 100 Gold, 1 Code für einen Schneeflocken-Gleitschirm, 1 Code für ein Wütendes Wintertagsgeschenk & 1 Code für einen Festlichen Hut
  • Itempäckchen mit einem ungefähren Wert von 100 Gold, 1 Code für ein Wütendes Wintertagsgeschenk & 1 Code für einen Festlichen Hut
  • Itempäckchen mit einem ungefähren Wert von 100 Gold & 1 Code für einen Festlichen Hut

Und das hier sind die physischen Preise:

  • 1 T-Shirt in Größe L: Hellgrau mit weißem GW2 Logo und ein HoT-Schlüsselband
  • 1 T-Shirt in Größe XL: Schwarz mit weißem Charr-Aufdruck und ein HoT-Schlüsselband
  • 1 T-Shirt in Größe M: Schwarz mit grau-grünem Bild und kleinem grünen HoT-Logo
  • 1 T-Shirt in Größe XL: Schwarz mit grau-grünem Bild und kleinem grünen HoT-Logo
  • 1 T-Shirt in Größe S: Schwarz mit metallisch-grünem HoT-Logo

Wintersday Giveaway 2016 Guild Wars 2 t-shirts

Hinterlasst einen Link zu eurem Screenshot (ihr könnt diesen z. B. auf dieser Seite hochladen: http://tinypic.com/)und gebt außerdem an, ob ihr lieber ein T-Shirt oder einen der digitalen Preise gewinnen würde (außerdem auch eure bevorzugte T-Shirt-Größe). Wir werden versuchen, euch euren bevorzugten Preis zu geben, wenn ihr gewinnt, aber wir können das natürlich nicht garantieren. Die drei digitalen Preise werden vom ersten bis zum dritten in der Reihenfolge, wie die Gewinner gezogen wurden, verteilt. Das Giveaway ist für Teilnehmer weltweit geöffnet und wir zahlen natürlich das Porto, um euch das T-Shirt zuzusenden – außer ihr wohnt an einem Ort mit hohen Portokosten (wie z. B. einem Inselzuschlag).

Atlas Reactor: Win 1 of 5 Lockwood Citadel Skins

(Update: Giveaway is closed. Winners will be receiving their codes shortly – We decided to give away 6 codes instead of 5, so everybody’s a winner! :D)

Atlas Reactor entered its headstart (which you can join immediately if you purchase the founder pack). If you don’t own a founder’s pack, you will have to wait until the game’s official launch to play the game for free. But don’t worry: This day is tomorrow!

The launcher states that the game will launch at 8 am PDT (click the link to see the time in your own time zone) – so in less than 24 hours! And to celebrate this occasion, we were given special skins (Lockwood Citadel Skins) to give away to our readers! Skins are purely cosmetic, of course. Lockwood is the freelancer you get to try during the tutorial, by the way. He is one of my favourite freelancers and I think purple suits him very well! So if you want one of these skins for yourself as well, read the rules below and leave a comment. :)

Atlas Reactor Lockwood Citadel Skin

  1. Rules and Important Notes – Read these before participating in our giveaway! They will tell you what to do in order to enter successfully.
  2. This giveaway will run from today until 8. October (9 pm our time!). Click the link to check for the time in your timezone.
  3. Leave a comment saying “I have read and agree with the giveaway’s rules” if you want to enter the giveaway for the Lockwood Citadel Skin. No other keyword is necessary here (since we only have this skin to give away in the first place).
  4. The codes will expire on November 6, so if you win it, make sure to enter it before that date!

Last but not least, good luck to everybody who participates!
