Sorry for the delay in getting these ready, it's been one heck of a week. The winners have been drawn for our on-site giveaway this afternoon and it's time to announce the winners.
The Good - Congratulations
Bananenparty and SilverWolf have both won themselves a Forged in the Barrens Bundle!
- 60 Forged in the Barrens card packs.
- 2 random Forged in the Barrens Legendary cards.
- Hamuul Runetotem card back.
A very special thank you to Blizzard for providing us with the prizes for this giveaway. If you haven't pre-ordered yet, there is still time to do so and you can do so in-game or on the Battle.net shop.
The Bad - Disqualifications
Although we didn't go heavy on disqualifications, 12 people were removed from the giveaway for spamming or making use of an overwhelming number of low-quality replies. The majority of participants in the Tavern Crawl did a good job and I'm glad to see it!
Now, there is certainly room for disagreement on what is a low-quality reply, so we were more than nice on this, but it's possible in the future we'll be more aggressive. I don't believe it's difficult to ask everyone to leave a full sentence talking about a card at a minimum. Yes, some cards are always going to be hard to talk about, but those ones you have some wiggle room provided your other replies are of good quality.
If you want a full list of who was qualified, you can find that here. I won't be providing a list of those disqualified to avoid publicly shaming them. If your name isn't on the winner list, please make a better attempt next time or don't participate -

Congratulations to the winners! Also, props to those who actually went through and commented for the Tavern Crawl. I know I missed out on a few tickets by not doing the comments myself, but I don't usually have much to say until I've *experienced* a card so I chose to sit that portion out. Also, commenting on all the cards often takes more time than I have these days.
Sorry to hear that people tried to scam the card commenting portion though. That's disappointing to hear, although it's probably inevitable as the site grows in popularity. :(
Congrats winners! I hope you enjoy your PRIZES!!!
Oh my god! I can't believe I won this!
I would've commented and congratulated anyway cause this competition was so much fun and kept me engaged in the reveals - and even better: engaged in this site and community!
It was and is so cool to see everyones hot takes on the new cards and be rewarded for commenting, even if it's 'only' in tokens.
Hope you had as much fun as me, and keep on being such lovely people <3
Also thanks to all people who organized this great event. It was a blast!
Congrats to you and SilverWolf! It´s always nice to see a valuable member of our little community being rewarded :) Enjoy your price, you both deserve it.
How many bananas will be at your party?
Thanks for this great organisation
Congrats to the winners! The competition was fun, and it definitely got me more engaged with card reveal season than I have ever been previously.
Congratulations to the winners and thanks for doing the giveaway!
Congrats everyone! Really stoked I got to participate in this event! Out of curiosity, I purchased the bundle thinking the odds were against me (I was right), but if I had won the giveaway and already purchased the bundle myself, what would've happened?
Sometimes you can explain the situation to Blizzard support and they'll do a refund. You can't be certain of it though so hoping to do that if you're entering lots of giveaways can be risky.
You'd still get the code from us though, you'd get to pick what you want to do with it. If you want to give it to a friend, cool. Maybe activate it on another server on your account. Not up to us!
Congrats to the winners! Had fun with this contest it got me hyped up for the new expansion release! Good luck everyone with pack openings.
Congratz to the winners, better luck next time for the rest of us!
For now, I shall be content with the Olympic spirit of having taken part in this wonderful contest 😋
Gz to the winners!
Sadly two people I reported are still on the list (although with 0 entries) and I didn't get any reply wheter my PMs were helpful or not. 6 pages of forum posts of one user are one word postings.... I expected at least a "we'll take a look"
I guess next time I won't report.
Ah crap, I didn't realize our code that spits that out kept people on the list that we removed tickets from. Well, too late now.
I'm sorry you didn't receive a reply, sometimes those messages get opened up and notes are taken and then something sweeps you up into a hurry (which seems to be my life story over the past month). I try my best to respond to everyone and your messages are always appreciated and worth sending in!
Ok. That's good to know. I sometimes do the same and forget to answer. I placed my complaint here because I was unsure if my messages were read. There was a specific question if a PM or the report function is better. So I thought that an answer is likely.
If 0 entries means blocked, I'll do my duty next time.
Congratz to the winners.
For those interested, the maximum amount of tickets possible seems to be 19. However, both of the winners only sat at 15 and 17 tickets respectively, which means that if you didn't manage to max out your tickets you don't have to feel bad since it doesn't appear to improve your odds by that much.
Congratulations to Bananenparty and SilverWolf!
