Is Wrath out yet? Is Wrath out yet? It's not? Well, here's another Caption This! contest to fill in your lonely hours.
First off, congratulations to the winners of the last contest: thebmf with "None of the Tallstriders had the heart to tell the orc he was adopted," and runner-up Kakura with "Grog never wanted to be a peon. Grog always wanted to be... a lumberjack!"
Here's how the story goes: I post a picture during Tuesday maintenance. You write a humorous caption for this picture by Friday, September 26 at 11:59 PM EST. It could be a funny description of the situation or a quote that you imagine the characters in the screenshot saying. Examples of previous winners can be found here, here and here. Leave your captions in a comment on this post, and keep it clean -- if Blizzard would warn you for saying it in-game, don't enter it in the contest. During the weekend, I e-mail the post to our list, members of the WoW Insider team respond with their favorites, and ten of those favorites will be chosen for the final vote. On Tuesday morning, we put the top ten up for a public vote in a new post. Voting ends Wednesday, October 1 at 11:59 PM EST. After the voting, we notify the winners. If they respond to our e-mail and confirm that they're eligible to win, we mail out their prizes.
And what are these prizes, you ask? Well, first place winner gets a 60-day game card, worth approximately $30. And the second-place winner will get his choice of an Eastvale Logging Camp or a Camp Taurajo ringer shirt from J!NX, worth about $20.
However, to win you have to be eligible -- and to be eligible, you have to be a U.S. or non-Quebec Canadian resident at least 13 years of age. Sorry, EU, Oceanic and other readers, but legal restrictions make it impossible to include everyone. The official rules for the contest can be found here. Read them or be kicked out of the beta by Tigole!
