    I'm excited to announce the first giveaways for our February WCG Team Challenge! On Thursday, I'll pick three or four games from the donated list to hand out Friday.

    I'll pick games on Thursday morning; please refrain from posting in this thread until 10:00 AM EST Thursday. I realize that not all of you want to be entered into the game giveaway, so I'm not going to use the full list from the WCG Challenge. If you want to enter for a game, you must post in this thread. Requirements are simple: you must be currently crunching for TPU's WCG team :toast:

    Game prizes will be drawn Friday night; I'm planning on closing the doors at 22:00 EST (10 PM for you 12hr folks) and drawing the games within an hour.

    If you're interested in a game or just seeing how this progresses, please subscribe to the thread and stay tuned for further details :toast:

    When you enter, please tell me what game you're most interested in! (games will be chosen before entries open)

    Someone is forgetful (me :rolleyes:), but the games are:
    AMD Never Settle Promo
    Hitman Absolution
    Deus Ex. Human Revolution
    Left4Dead 2

    post which game you're interested in, or just say "In" if you don't care. Winning a game does not disqualify you from future prizes

    I hope im not entering too early (sorry if I am), but I gotta hop of the interwebs for a week due to an IAPS assignment =(. I cant math today so I have no cue what time 10AM EST is here in Toronto...also I can't figure out how to work the timezone conversion things. Hoping to enter for the AMD never settle bundle =D

    EDIT: Derp, just remember Toronto is EST... and its currently 10pm on Thursday (Edit of the edit: no wait.. its wednesday -_-)=D

    I pity you and your comprehension of time :)p). You are entering early, however, do to your IAPS assignment, this is acceptable. You'll be entered for the Never Settle bundle :toast:

    I think it would be better to just select and post the first ~5 titles that are to be given away instead and have the interested people post to enter. I think doing it as described in the first post lacks a level of transparency, for lack of better words.

    Unless I've had a bout of dyslexia, you haven't stated whether or not a win here means exclusion from further WCG prizes.

    I'm not sure what BL2 is, but there are still a dozen games that will be handed out after these ones are gone ;)

    I'll go with the Never Settle. And I think he means Borderlands 2 for BL2.
