Here are select humorous quotes that were submitted in the T-Shirt Giveaway article, in the order they were posted:
- “You must unlearn what you have learned” (Patrick Glover)
- “If you can see this then you strafed correctly” (Shin)
- “Backpedaling? I find your lack of skill disturbing” (Skargust)
- “No! Try not. Strafe, or strafe not. There is no try” (Tim Langenberg)
- “The strafe is strong with this one” (Mongol)
There was no guideline that quotes had to be about Star Wars, but I guess it was to be expected that dozens of SWTOR-related quotes were submitted given that the game is launching today.
Here is the quote I picked for the t-shirt giveaway:
“I find your lack of strafe disturbing”
For that quote, there is a complication!
As I posted on the Giveaway article, here’s how it works:
- To participate in the Giveaway, post a comment on this article which contains your kick-ass quote that will go on the back of the t-shirt. Your choice of whether the quote is insightful / clever / funny / etc. If you tweeted the quote to me already, include a link to your tweet
- At my discretion, I’ll pick the winning quote and the lucky person who gets credit for it. In the case where multiple people tweeted the same winning quote and posted that quote here, I’ll consider the timestamps in making the pick
I setup the Giveaway that way to make my life easy. Comments posted here are easy to track / manage and aren’t buried in a mass of unrelated tweets.
The quote was originally tweeted to me back on December 10th by nova_squad. I waited several days for that person to post their quote on the Giveaway article, even hinted to that person via PM to do so since the quote was so funny, but no dice.
The only person to post the winning quote is Mongol, and therefore he gets the free t-shirt. For full disclosure, Mongol is in my guild. I gave him no information that would have caused him to submit the entries that he posted.
Please PM me the following on Twitter or TwitchTV:
- Which t-shirt design, size, and color you want
- Your name and mailing address (info only used to send you the t-shirt)
However, since it is the holiday season, I’m giving nova_squad a chance to receive a free t-shirt. nova_squad, here’s what you need to do:
- Post a comment on this article by 12:59am PST today (Dec 20th) – i.e. you have just over 3 hours
- Follow the instructions I posted for Mongol above
Thanks everyone for participating, it was riot reading all the submissions, and enjoy the SWTOR launch :)
