World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor

CLOSED: We've got 1000 Warlords of Draenor beta keys to giveaway

Warlords of Draenor Beta Giveaway

UPDATE: The giveaway is now closed, and future comments will not be counted. Follow @Archernick for status updates on the code sending progress; it will take at least a few hours. Keys will be sent out after we've weeded out duplicates, and please remember to check your spam folder!

Celebrating the Warlords of Draenor cinematic reveal and street date announcement, we’ve been through the Dark Portal to get our hands on 1000 Warlords of Draenor beta keys. Don’t worry, you don’t need to fight any orc warlords to get one. Just follow our easy instructions and keep your fingers crossed.

Just please don’t break our website.

We’ve got a mighty 1000 global keys to giveaway, and we’re going to do it old school just like our Hearthstone giveaway last year. Here’s what you need to do: if you haven’t already, create an account here at PCGamesN. You must provide a valid email address when you create that account - this is where the code goes. Read the last sentence again for good measure because it’s super important.

After that all you need to do is leave a comment on this post - nothing specific, but if you leave a nice message you might make our Nick smile as he reads them. If the site implodes because you guys are like stampeding Kodos, don’t worry as we’re giving you a full 24 hours to get your comment in. You have until Friday at 19:00 BST to enter into the giveaway, and any entries after that deadline will not be counted. The codes will be given out shortly after the giveaway closes.

We’ll be tracking repeat entries, so don’t bother doing that. You’ll look thick.

Once you’ve got your comment in, what next? Well it’s a good idea to be following @PCGamesN on Twitter and PCGamesN on Facebook for announcements. You can also follow our Nick @Archernick for status updates as he’s giving out the codes; it’ll take a while to do it manually.

Now there’s bound to be some of you with questions even after all that, so here’s a quick FAQ.

Q: How will you be giving out the keys and will it be fair?

A: We won’t be using any third-party website for this giveaway, instead we’ll be doing it manually. This means that Nick will be sending out the beta codes himself to each comment that is randomly selected. There’s not going to be any broken giveaway websites, bots snatching the keys or any foul play. It does mean it will take a good few hours though; he’s only human after all.

Q: I submitted a comment but I can’t see it, does that mean it didn’t work?

A: Not at all. As default when a new account makes a comment we moderate it first to check that you’re a nice human being. Until it’s been approved, it’s not viewable on the website. This however will not affect your chances at winning a key, as we see each and every comment at all times. Please refrain from posting multiple comments as it could get you excluded from the giveaway.

Q: Can I do X and give myself more of a chance of winning a key?

A: Nope. We have computer magic and common sense weeding out anybody that’s trying to manipulate the giveaway. And don't think that upvoting your comment or downvoting others will give you more of a chance, it doesn't. It will just earn you a swift ban from it entirely. Don’t try it.

Good luck and see you in Draenor!

Dear handsome and well endowed Nick. I hear that you are a man of quality and rippling testoterone that makes all other men pale in comparison. That being the case i, a pale and depressingly obese man-child with genetaila which couldn't be seen with an electron microscope (not that anyone would want to see it anyway) humbly beseech you to grant this pitiful and lonely creatures inner most desire and grant him access to the WoD Beta, so that he may slink back to the hovel from wence i came and bother humanity no further.
