I've decided to ring in the new year in a slightly different manner this year, namely by holding a little giveaway for my readers!
And the lucky winner, determined by an in-game /roll 30 (the number of entries), is...
Commenter #3, fellow blogger Ravanel from The Red Eclipse!
While I visited my family in Austria for Christmas, I purchased a 2400 cartel coin code in a local shop. Here's the box in all its German glory:
No, of course I won't send that to anyone, that would be silly. The winner will simply receive the code to claim their coins in their in-game mail.
Store-bought cartel coins come with different mini pets depending on where you bought them, and since these are from Austria, they will also grant one of your characters a Forest Nekarr Cat.
How to enter:
There are two requirements for entering this giveaway.
1. Leave a comment in response to this post telling me about a happy SWTOR memory. (I was going to say "your happiest" at first but didn't want anyone to fret about whatever they had thought of right then really was their happiest moment or merely in their top ten - it's kind of silly but I know it's the kind of thing I would do.) Anything SWTOR-related will do, whether it was directly caused by something that happened in the game or only tangentially related, e.g. that time you had a real-life meetup with all of your SWTOR guildies and it was awesome.
2. At the end of your comment, leave your character name, faction and server name. This is so I have a way of contacting you if you win! This doesn't have to be your main if you're shy, just somewhere where I can mail the code if you win so that you will actually receive it.
The blog is set up to allow anonymous comments, so as long as you can cope with CAPTCHAs you don't have to sign up with any third party service like OpenID to participate. However, should you still have issues commenting on this post for some reason, feel free to drop me an e-mail with what your comment was supposed to be and I will post it for you.
While I hope that people will leave thoughtful comments that will be enjoyable to read, they won't be rated by quality and the winner will be drawn at random from all eligible participants. You have until 7 am GMT on the 6th of Janury to enter (you'll have to check yourself when that is in your local time zone), at which point I'll close the comments for this post and announce the winner later in the day.
Happy New Year!
