Winter 2014 Giveaway - The Battle of Steam Sales
« on: December 18, 2014, 04:36:02 PM »
THIS CONTEST IS NOW OVER!

This year we've decided to follow Valve's example and to change the way we do our bi-yearly giveaways. We'll be holding a big auction, and to participate you guys will need to collect Hyperion Gems by making forum posts at least 1,000 characters long, or playing at least 5 hours straight on our TF2/NS2 servers or by simply donating money. You will be also able to find hidden Hyperion Ducks on the forums and in-game. Each duck is worth 5,152.25 Hyperion Gems.

On December 25th, the first Hyperion Auction will begin, and you can bid your Gems (but you can't bid Ducks... that's inhumane) to maybe win a game that's currently -85% off on Steam. Oh wait, I've just been told by our web team that we need to shut the auction down because people are abusing/cheating the awesome Gems/Ducks system our bored TF2 designers came up with. Well, at least they can go back to work on new maps, game modes and more... Right?

Yes, very sarcastic before the holidays, isn't it? Don't worry, we're not changing a winning formula. As usual, you only need to have a valid forum account (including SteamID), to join our public Steam group and make one post in the giveaway thread linked below. So easy a geico could do it. We've got 14 months of Donor membership and lots of Steam games for you guys. And as usual a big Grand Mystery Prize on January 1st. We're activating our Bonus Round challenge once again: this time we need 60 participants by December 31st to add a 2nd GMP!

To participate, please follow this link: http://hyperiongaming.org/index.php?topic=770.0 and make sure you read the giveaway rules carefully. The winners will be picked randomly from the giveaway thread from December 25th to January 1st for the Grand Prize. You may register for the giveaway at any time December 31st at midnight Pacific Time.

Do not post in this thread! The giveaway thread is here: http://hyperiongaming.org/index.php?topic=770.0
Good luck! and Happy Holidays! :)

You guys know how the bonus round works by now. This time, we need 60 participants to unlock another Grand Mystery Prize for January 1st.

Right now, we need 49 more people to sign up! So spread the word! ;)

Happy holidays and good luck!

Update #1:
Only 20-ish people signed up so far... I guess that means higher chances to win for you guys, but only one Grand Mystery Prize.  :p

First two winners will be announced tonight, and again tomorrow, and again until December 31st.
Check this thread to see the winners name, and make sure to check your PM inbox.
Good luck! :)

Make sure to claim your prizes by replying to the PM in your inbox!



And that's it! Our Winter 2014 Giveaway is now officially over. It's too bad we didn't get to unlock the bonus round this year, but that means I'll get to distribute more games via SteamGifts.com.

New giveaways will be posted in the SteamGifts.com giveaway thread as usual. I also try to post an update on our Steam community groups.

I'm sorry if you didn't get to win anything this year, but who knows... maybe all is not lost. Keep an eye on your inbox during the next few days. Surprise?


Congratulations to all our winners, and I really hope you guys all enjoy your new games and shiny donor membership! I wish you all a very happy new year 2015, and let's hope Valve will keep updating TF2 with lots of new content!
