The Ten Ton Hammer "Dead of Summer" Contest Begins!

With prizes including several great Zboard products, beta slots for upcoming MMOs like Tabula Rasa and Pirates of the Burning Sea, World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade pre-orders, skads of gamecards, and autographed prints from Tabula Rasa master developers Richard "Lord British" Garriott and Starr Long, the Ten Ton Hammer "Dead of Summer" contest prize list has something for every kind of MMO gamer!

How to win? It's the dead of summer, and we want to see screenshots of your death or moments-from-death scenes in your favorite MMORPGs. The more we make that laugh and groan in empathy, the better your chances to win! So your World of Warcraft 40-man raid turned into a 40-man wipe in Naxxramas? Aviaks turned you into birdseed in EverQuest 2's Kingdom of Sky? The Warforged Titan end your party in Dungeons and Dragons Online? Rats eat your EVE Online Ship? I could go on, but you get the idea.

Take an amusing, macabre, or otherwise out-of-the-ordinary post-mortem picture from any of eight popular MMORPG, write a brief caption for the screenshot, and follow the directions on our contest page to send it in. Enter as many times as you like, but Ten Ton Hammer isn't responsible for the experience debt, armor repair cost, or the guildchat flaming you get if you do this on raid time! We urge you to die responsibly; let it happen naturally! And when death does happen, snap a pic, share it with us, and win over $600 worth of great prizes!

Special thanks to contest sponsors: Ideazon, Inc. (makers of Zboard peripherals), NCSoft, Flying Lab Software , and Ten Ton Hammer.
