Red Alert 3 Beta Keys Community Contest
Hey, comrades. Wish you could take part in the Red Alert 3 invitational beta test, but you never picked up a copy of Kane's Wrath to get your ticket in? A handful of lucky players out there are going to get a chance to score a free key, and all that's required is a bit of Red Alert knowledge.
A couple of our staff have an extra key to share, and with EA's sponsorship, we'd like to make them and a few others available to you. Starting Wednesday at 11:59PM LA time (Thu 7:59AM GMT) we're going to begin posting questions; get them all right, and you're likely to be playing the RA3 Beta soon afterwards. If you get a question wrong, you're out of the competition. If you get them right, you can keep playing. Please note that you'll need to have an EA ID account to participate in the RA3 Beta Test, and you'll need to have an APB forums account to submit your answers. Questions will be trivia drawn from the original Red Alert, RA: Counterstrike, RA: The Aftermath, Red Alert 2, RA2: Yuri's Revenge, and Red Alert 3. Emphasis will be put on the main titles or general universe knowledge.
Days questions will appear:
- Wednesday, August 6
- Friday, August 8
- Sunday, August 10
- Tuesday, August 12
- Thursday, August 14
- Sunday, August 17th Lightning Round
- At 11:59PM PST (7:59AM GMT next-day) on a question day, we'll post two questions on our front page
- If you know the answers, send a private message to username "Contest" at the A Path Beyond forum
- If you do not know the answers, find out! You have 24 hours to submit your answers.
- When you answer the first question, include your valid EA ID account name and a valid email address, noting whether or not you already have a serial.
- We'll post the correct answers on the next question day; if you were right, you can keep playing.
- If the pool of contestants ever drops below seven, we will assign runners-up based on submission times.
- Lightning Round: If we have more contestants than serials on Sunday, August 17th, we will post three bonus questions as a lightning round. Beta keys will be awarded while supplies last to those who answer all three correctly.
- Do not post your answers to the questions anywhere, as you will be disqualified
- If you are caught attempting to enter multiple times, you will be disqualified
- You cannot play if you are a project team member, or family member of one.
- You can play if you already have a serial, but are discouraged from doing so.
- We reserve the right to make the final judgment as to who the winners are
