You can't sell it on e-bay, since it's personalized and will only work for you. That's why we require for you to specify whether you can attend BlizzCon '09 in the email.

"what was the most popular map of the week"

for this question, is it referring to ICCUP maps of the weeks? because there's probably a few websites that record "maps of the week"

So it's not worth it one bit, cause it's too expensive just to go to USA for few days.

Could I get clarification/more details on question 8? There's a couple options I'm split between because the confederates had multiple secret ops.

Edit: Nvm, I found a second source to ease my doubts.


PS: For everyone trying google, its useless hahaha

Then you obviously don't understand how to use Google properly. I've found 14 of the 15 answers using it, and I expect to get the 15th very soon.

Edit2: Submitted. There's max 3 I may have gotten wrong.

Edit3: Ahaha, I just realized I forgot to put if I could go to Blizzcon or not. Guess I'm disqualified. That's harsh.

i just spent a few min'its on it cause i wont have internet. for like a week or 2. i could of really searched for the answers and spend a few days i don't have on it. but i took my chances. It looks like it could be Google FTL ay at lease for my loss.

I found quite a bit on archived Starcraft:L articles. but since people don't have a back up to sc:L GOOGLE!

i promise you giveing the competition the upper hand will hurt you more then u think.


To tell you the Truth! i dident even realize it was on the site already. would saved me like 15 min on searching for my archive of your site.
just prior contest questions. you had one with lots of starcraft beta questions a few years back.
if u would like ill see if i do have anything thats not on the site. im shure it all is it looks like alot of the same just skimming threw them now

the only reason i have an archive and its old any way is at the time i was writing an article for my Creative theory and writeing class. and the site kept going in an out.

Actually you can't GOOGLE them in all its senses, you need to know part of the answer to find the full answer.

People loyal to SC will know this information and will easily use sources to find them. But if someone rather new, to it, tries it he will probably get 3 answers and then frustrate to death.

Just PM Gradius or myself with whether or not you could go and we'll put it in for you. A perk of being a forum member ;)

The winners will be randomly selected from those receiving the highest scores.

As Gradius said, all of our previous articles should now be up.

how are you going to announce the winners? will you announce it over the site, or PM/email the winners privately first?

also, since the first three prizes are all blizzcon ticket-inclusive, that basically means that those who can go have a better shot at a beta key, cuz there's only 1 beta key-only prize. not fair! i want a beta key too, but I can't go to blizzcon this year. what's the deal?

I think we'll probably contact the winners at least a few hours before we post to site then we'll post.

All the people in the pool of highest answers will be entered. If a person is randomly selected for one of the top 3 spots and is unable to go - they will receive the beta key and the BC ticket will be randomly given to one of the others in the top pool that "can go".

Does that clear up any confusion?

Hahahahaha, good one. :D However, I think web searching is second nature for anyone who uses the internet even on a semi-regular basis.

Anyway, it is true that nearly all of the answers can be found using Google. However, at least some of the questions (partially) require a good memory as well.

All of our articles should be up on our site. What do you have archived that we don't?

I don't know if it counts as an article but http://sclegacy.com/content/interviews-6/scl-metzen-interview---lore-exclusive-28/ was unavailable when I tried to access it.

LordofAscension
06-10-2009, 10:29 AM
Which article is it? The reason it was unacceptable is that our content structure no longer produces URL's like that - you'd need to go back into our interview section and see if it is there under a different URL.

I have a question of clarification regarding #15. In describing Tassadar, does Chris Metzen actually use the world "like." Does he specifially say, Tassadar is a ______-like character?

LordofAscension
06-10-2009, 03:10 PM
No. It is implied from what he actually says.

To be honest - when I wrote the question I totally blanked on the words he actually used... even though I was there when he said it -_-

~LoA

06-10-2009, 07:04 PM
If the Metzen quote for Q15 doesn't actually contain the words "-like character", is there some other way we can confirm that we're referencing the particular quote you're looking for?

When you find the quote, you'll know its the right one. Metzen refers to Tassasdar as ________ a couple times, actually.
