    Missed out on getting a Red Alert 3 BETA Key from Fileplanet?
    We have a few spare, and to win them, all you have to do is play some games


    Contest Finished

    We have been given a number of keys from forum members to give out and we decided that the best way to decide who gets one is to play some games and give it to the highest scorer.

    Earlier this week, DoctorJones won a RA3 key by helping us test out a new Arcade game and getting the highest score. This is a repeat of that, though this time no testing is needed, and one of the games requires no posts to take part!

    The RA3 Keys have been obtained from Fileplanet and have not been used. You can use it as you wish :)



    [​IMG] Game 1 - Everyone - Ice Age: Scrat Jump

    This game is open to everyone. All you need to be is logged into your account so the score can be recorded against your name. If you haven't registered create a free account and take part.


    How to enter:



    • Play "Ice Age: Scrat Jump" on Digiex Arcade by clicking here.
    • Get the highest score by the end of Saturday (30th) Evening (GMT - UTC)!
    • The winner will have a key private messaged to them.


    [​IMG] Game 2 - Contributors (10 Posts Minimum) - Mini-Putt

    This game is only open to people who have Contributed something to this site. Be it helping in the RA3 thread to posting throughout the forum. Unlike the previous game which is mostly luck, this game requires some skill and may take a few attempts to learn all the tricks.


    How to enter:



    • Make ten posts throughout the forum that dont get flagged up as spam
    • Play "Mini-Putt" on Digiex Arcade by clicking here
    • Get the highest score by the end of Saturday (30th) Evening (GMT - UTC)!
    • The winner will have a key private messaged to them.


    Important Notes:

    For those of you who really are determined, please make sure when you logged into this site you told it to "remember me". If your not sure, log out and back in and ensure it is selected. After long periods of time (ie playing the game for an hour) the system will have logged you out and your score will fail to submit unless your logged in. Also just in case please dont play the games for longer than 30 minutes or so at a time just incase there is a problem. If need be, submit your score then click to play again.

    Also note on the Ice Age game, your score is multipied by 100 when submitting, so add an extra 00 to your score to compare it to the leaderboard.

    Rules

    We want to make this contest as simple as possible, without a massive terms and conditions but we must set a few ground rules. For users with less than 10 posts its clear you will most likely go round the forum posting so we need to make one thing clear. Posts which are just spam like "I agree" and "Thanks" will make your entry into this contest void. If you intend to post 10 times just to play game 2 they must be 10 serious posts. Also staff members at Digiex are not allowed to take part in the contest, any member of staff who records a high score will just be ignored and the person below will win. Anyone caught cheating will be banned on the spot, if you secure a really high score miles ahead of everyone else its recommended you screenshot your score just incase its questioned.

    We hope that you will stick around after this contest as you will find Digiex will offer a lot, we were the site to leak the first ever build of Windows 7, as well as one of the first sites with Red Alert 3 Beta. So in the future, we will offer more :)



    A big thank you to Digiex Members for donating keys for this contest!

    To be honest i didn't think of that lol. If you win both the games the score that was recorded most recently (ie: last) will be ignored and on that game it go to the next person. So you still win one key, and the bragging rights that goes with it.

    Ie, if you got the high score on Miniputt on the 28th and then the high score on Scrat Jump on the 30th and ended up winning both, you would be the winner on Miniputt, and 2nd place would win the key on scrat jump.

    Hope that clears it up for you.

    Apparently its not about the time.. Its about who scores the most recent 342. I wonder if there is a possibility to get an higher score than 342.

    If no one beats 342 then the winner will be the member who gets 342 in the quickest time, I think you will all agree that would be the fairest way to choose the winner.

    Damn the person to announce how to cheat in flash, the mini-putt game has turned from a fun game of golf into a competition on who can click the fastest.

    Thanks alot!

    EDIT: Someone has 344 in the mini putt arcade game! I don't see how this is possible without cheating or hacking. 342 is the best when every hole is a hole in one!.
