I'll have a few keys to share with our loyal readers, courtesy of our friends at Blizzard.  Help me come up with a contest to give away a few keys!  Keep it simple and do-able.

Random drawing? How about submitting pictures of characters in weird places or something?

Since you need an active account, that isn't a bad idea.

Oh...please.  Please.  Please.  Please.  Pretty please.  With sugar on top.

After leveling up 5 toons to level 60, I've longed to see what's through the portal.

Characters in weird places

Let's start the first 6 keys this way.  Submit your best in each of these categories.  One winner will be chosen from EACH category.   You don't have to enter every category to win, but it increases your chances.  The GT staff will chose the winner from your submissions.  Deadline is Friday by MIDNIGHT PST!

Ron, I swear to you man I would love to quit my job right now. I've had over 200 calls in the past hour about users being kicked off our system and are unable to log on (TermID showing logged in when the user is offline --system knocks them offline randomly) and this problem has been going on for the past few months...

But the past three days have been HELLISH.  I can't wait till we finish our conversion so this crap stops!

/quit <=== My desired choice

/debt = a lot   <====My reality lol


When I get home I"ll dig htrough some screenshots.

Should we only send in one submission per category? Like I got a ton of scenic pictures, but I assume I have to pick the best one.

I think you might be able to run WoW with your graphics options turned up a bit. What's your PC's specs?

Honestly, the game definitely doesn't look that great on its lowest settings, as your screenshot proves.
