    lOOking for wOrK
    MAP RATE-ATHON
    (with PRIZES!!!)

    WINNARS:

    Random Winner on the top rated map (tc_meridian_b5 - Ratings) - STEAM_0:0:18403615


    Thanks to captainAngry, the map ratings (!maprate) are working on lOOking for wOrK again! To celebrate and replenish the ratings that were lost, I'm giving away 2 copies of Call of Duty: World at War* (see fine print).

    Here's how it will work:
    Until Tuesday, March 24, 2009 @ 12:01 a.m., the server will be running the 5CP push maps as per the original rate off. After that, the server will return to it's regular map cycle with the winner of the 5CP push going up against fastlane in the regular rotation.

    On Saturday, March 28, 2009 @ 12:01 a.m., I will take a snapshot of the ratings. I will choose 1 random steam ID from the map with the most ratings. The owner of that steam ID will win a copy of CoD:WaW (see fine print).

    The steam ID with the most maps rated will also win a copy of CoD:WaW (see fine print).

    THAT'S TWO CHANCES TO WIN!!

    Play on my server and rate as many maps as possible. If you rate the map with the most ratings, that enters you in the random drawing. If you rate more maps than anyone else, you automatically win!


    FINE PRINT:
    All times Pacific. The "copies" were obtained by me as a bonus when purchasing 2 video cards. I received the CDs with "key codes" required to fully use the game on stickers on each CD. I'm 95% certain you can open steam, go to your 'my games' list, click 'activate a product on steam', and put that key code in the product code box and DL the game. In the event that I'm wrong, I will mail the disk to the winner who owns the steam ID, but the winner will be responsible for shipping and handling.

    Wowy, lol. That's a pretty sweet deal. Though I'm not really a fan of CoD or similar WorldWar games, I think this is definitely worth checking out. Good luck to everyone who participates :)

    Whoa, that's pretty awesome! I've got to visit your server quite a few times in the following days. :p

    That's kind of why I decided to have the contest, as an epic ploy to have people on the server for a week straight in an effort to build up regulars. I would have been on more myself last night, but we're having issues with our( i has a partner now) and mySQL databases and such.

    On the plus side, I'm switching to our normal stOcK vs custOms rotation today...and it's always easier to get joiners on non-custom maps.
