    Nothing scarier than pulling a 5☆ in a color already @5 and not full covered

    I am confused, is this just a story starring characters in MPQ, or are we supposed to take actual screenshots with different lines?

    Just use any/all characters from MPQ and make up a gorey story. icon_twisted.gif No screen shots needed or anything like that. Just make up a story starring the characters from the game.

    Send a copy, or write your story in a PM, to me or fight. We will post it as soon as the contest opens. I have mine written and ready to go as well so you can send it to me and I'd be happy to post yours when I post mine.

    commandpointsbig.pngThis goes for any and all forum members that will be unable to post their story for whatever reasons. Send a copy to fight or myself. As soon as the contest officially opens, we will post it for you. commandpointsbig.png

    My official entry for the Halloween Creative Writing Competition

    I really can't be bothered. Y'all can imagine what it would have been like... a bunch of barbed comments about drop rates and customer support nightmares and bugs and freezes, all wrapped up in a tenuously held together narrative about Liliana fighting Jace. Whatever.




    What did you think?
    Pleace vote for me so I can win 600 crystals.

    Ok....how do the rewards even compare between Marvel and Magic?

    With Marvel you get a card (cover with them) of your choice which are mostly the legendary cards and....oh, a legendary card for first place while for Magic we get....literally just gold and runes? Really? The transition would be a card of your choice and a Mythic.

    For any player who has played for more than a month, even a choice of rare would often be better than getting 600 crystals; do they not understand their own drop rates? 1 big box is often just all duplicates.

    Thanks for bringing attention to this matter. Although I don't think we can change the rewards for the contest with this event, I will discuss it with Hi-Fi and see if we can't upgrade the rewards for future events.

    If you are referring to this post, unfortunately it does not qualify. It is simply a comment about why you have chosen not to write a scary story, not an actual a scary story. And that's why it was moved to the contest discussion thread.

    Hi, there!

    Am I to assume that the voting is now closed for the stories?

    When will we receive a verdict on a winner? I'm a little nervous about the timeline, considering that BfZ packs are leaving the store in 2 days!

    Hi Kuraikarp!

    Thanks for your query! Yes, voting is closed and the entries have been sent to D3 Go! to determine the winners.
    Unfortunately, I don't know when the results will be posted but they normally take only a few days so I imagine results will be up later this week.
