Super SOE Ninja Loot Giveaway

Updated Fri, Jul 12, 2013 by Shayalyn

In which everybody wins! Or at least a lucky few.

Last week I made my public pitch to be among the large contingent of Ten Ton Hammer staffers going to SOE Live in an open letter to my Uber Boss, Boomjack.

Hitchhiking is easier for pinup girls. But there's still the matter of potentially sleeping outdoors, which totally wrecks your manicure.

I probably should have known that public begging wasn't going to do the trick. I mean, nobody likes a noob standing in PoK begging for SoW and KEI, right? (Not that I'm a noob, mind you. I've been with Ten Ton Hammer since Vanguard was a twinkle in Brad McQuaid's eye.) Still, as a raid encounter, Boomjack is no cakewalk. He has a +20 to Resist Charming Editor, and he uses this wicked counter attack that hurls whatever gauntlet you've throw down right back in your face.

"So, you want to go to SOE Live to see the EverQuest Next unveiling, eh?" he said. (He's Canadian.) "And you want us to pay for it? Fine. You get us 1500 likes on Facebook, 1500 followers on Twitter, 1500 followers for me on Twitter...and we'll take you along."

If social media had been around back when Lucile Ball was begging Ricky Ricardo to be in his show, this is how she would have accomplished it.

So, that's the deal. Since hitchhiking to Vegas and sleeping on the streets during SOE Live is sort of out of the question for me because I require my 8 hours nightly, for which sleeping outdoors is not conducive, I need 1500 likes and followers for Ten Ton Hammer's social media channels. To help make it happen, I went on a midnight raid and ninja looted the following epic prizes from my awesome-and-only-slightly-less-uber boss, Reuben "Sardu" Waters', prize chest to make the effort worth your while. Two lucky winners will receive:

GRAND PRIZE PACKAGE

  • SOE branded high-quality laptop bag
  • SOE branded military-style hat
  • Dragon's Prophet t-shirt (red) | sz L, XL, or 2XL
  • PlanetSide 2 dog tags (Terran)
  • DCUO blue cape and branded swag

RUNNER-UP PRIZE PACKAGE

  • Dragon's Prophet t-shirt (red) | sz L, XL, or 2XL
  • DCUO branded swag
  • PlanetSide 2 branded swag

Some of this stuff is pretty exclusive, meaning you wouldn't be able to get your hands on it unless you were attending a press event like E3. What do you have to do for a chance to win? It's simple: just enter your email address below, and like or follow Ten Ton Hammer on our social media channels for extra chances to win. (Tell me you're going to take all the extra entries you can get, people! My trip to Vegas is on the line!)

There's an added perk. Even if you don't end up winning the loot, by following Ten Ton Hammer on our social channels you're destined to be among the first to know about all things EverQuest Next, because I can guaranty that we've got BIG plans for keeping you up-to-date and in the know!
