The last rush for the Halo 3 invites

The last rush for the Halo 3 invites

We still have a number of Halo 3 Beta invites to send out, but we'll this time use a different strategy for this competition. This time the competition only will be open for those that was registered yesterday and back in time, to give our older fanbase a chance. Tomorrow morning at around 10 or 11 AM (CET), we'll open up the competition on the forum- but it's first answer win, so be here in time!
It is also very important that you who won in the other competition put the correct mail adress and gamertag in your account info, otherwise we won't be able to invite you to the beta. If it's not done correctly on friday at 10 AM (CET), we will have *no way* to validate your beta subscription anymore.
Update: After people whined and whined, then whined again about the contest hours, some question will be asked later than anticipated. Next one will be at 12:30, then 4PM and finally 8PM.

"t is also very important that you who won in the other competition put the correct mail adress and gamertag in your account info, otherwise we won't be able to invite you to the beta"

But how do we know if we "won" the other competition?
All I got was an "ok" from BlimBlim, thats it. This is weird, and need a better explaination.

Is this open to those in the U.S. ? Just curious? Gamertag: OS Perry and my email on my account is up to date. But it isn't attached to my Windows LIVE account.

Have the previous winners been notified at all? I submitted all valid answers and was about the tenth respondent but I've heard nothing at all so I don't know if I need to be up early for submission or not.

  • Tiz
    Tiz I love em both to be honest. When I start playing either of them, I'm glued for a while albeit for different reasons. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Halo is a lot more dependent on individual skill which makes gunfights more intense and Overwatch is far more dependent on team synergy. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz As someone who has a fair amount of hours in both Halo & Overwatch, I'd say they both scratch different itches, but Overwatch has the broader appeal. (2 Hours ago)
