UPDATED: Announcing the winners of the contest!

19 Jul

So after a long and grueling process (of like 10 mins), I have chosen the winners. I have a surprise, though. There will now be winners since I scored an extra beta key. This means the GW1 prize will be split in 3 as well (unless you don’t want yours then I’ll just split it in 2). Also, if you don’t need the beta key, let me know and I’ll give it to someone else who I was going to choose.

And now, the moment you’ve been waiting for! The winners are:

Amy with her wonderful Fishmonger Scipio’s Seafood Stew. Very creative and hilarious commentary. Loved it!

Meancheez with his Quaggan Kelp Braids. I loved how you tied the lore into it (and Quaggan are some of my favorite creatures in GW2). It was wonderful reading your entry.

Zerogrifter with his hilarious Mursaat Mojito. The commentary about doing it right or wrong is what did me in. Haha.

Congratulations everyone! You all did a really good job and it was super tough picking this. I really wish I had more keys because man, this was tough. I had like 2 or 3 more I wanted to give prizes too, but sadly, I didn’t get anymore keys. Maybe next time.

Thank you all so much for entering and as for the winners, let me know the best way to contact you and I will send you your keys. Also, put your in game name here in the comments and we’ll arrange to meet some time in Guild Wars 1 for your in game rewards (although keep in mind if you want them before the BWE, you will have to get them tonight since I will not be available all weekend).

Update: Meancheez has said he ended up getting 30/50 and bought the game. He has generously given his prize away so I picked the 4th place winner to receive it 🙂

The new winner is Algorab with their Moa tagliata. Regardless of Rick Rolling me, I really enjoyed the picture and the way you tied it into the game as a traditional recipe.

If anyone knows how to contact the other two winners, please let me know. I can’t find a way to contact them. I’d like to get their keys by tomorrow. Thanks!


I will be checking this tomorrow before the BWE and I will be awake until around 12am PDT. I will constantly be checking for updates. I might not check after the BWE starts, though. But if you know someone in the game, my in game name will be Dragonof Chaos.

    Thanks, glad you liked it!

    I actually had a big day yesterday and finally hit 30/50 in my HoM, so in celebration I just went ahead and pre-purchased GW2 so I could try out the Asura this weekend. My beta key and in-game goodies are free up for another worthy candidate!

    Thanks again for running the contest; it was a cool challenge to think up an entry.

    Hey! I am so excited I won! A whole bunch of friends of mine all had beta keys except for me and I didn’t want to be the only one not playing. UNFORTUNATELY, one of my friends let me know late last night he was able to score a beta key for me. So I guess I don’t need this one anymore. Which feels slightly disappointing because I worked so hard on making that recipe and the soup. But thanks so much! I will continue to read your blog and munch on my Fishmonger Stew whilest beta-ing away at GW2.

    Happy Gaming!
