The BlizzCon juices are beginning to flow and we’re running a BlizzCon announcement World of Warcraft mount giveaway contest to celebrate the anticipated beginning of our podcast year.
Contestants are asked to send an email to: Show@BlizzConCountdown.com
Your email must include answers to each of the 4 steps of questions:
Step 1. Will there be a BlizzCon this year?
Step 2. What will be the opening day of BlizzCon?
Step 3. Will the cost of the general admission ticket increase this year?
Step 4. On what date will tickets go on sale?
Steps defined by dates will be resolved by the number of days that separate the guess from the actual date. If after Step 4 there are still contestants tied, a random number generator will be used to resolve the tie.
Contest will be deemed closed 72 hours prior to the official Blizzard announcement of this year’s BlizzCon plans.
Any mount on the Blizzard store will be available, up to a maximum of $30. Alternately, the winner may choose to receive the equivalent in Blizzard store pets. Prize can only be awarded to U.S. Realm accounts,
