    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.

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



    Game 1 - Everyone - Uber Breakout

    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, please create a free account and take part.


    How to enter:


    • Play "Uber Breakout" on Digiex Arcade.
    • Get the highest score by 18:00 on Monday the 1st of September (GMT - UTC)!
    • The winner will have a key private messaged to them.



    Game 2 - Account must be 14 days old - Asteroids


    To play this, your account must be older than 2 weeks. This is to stop new people from signing up just for this contest, and reward those who have been trying and posting for a while.

    How to enter:


    • Play "Asteroids" on Digiex Arcade by clicking here.
    • Get the highest score by 18:00 on Monday the 1st of September (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 you're not sure, log out and back in again 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.



    Rules

    We want to make this contest is as simple as possible, without a massive terms and conditions, but we must set a few ground rules. 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 it's recommended you screenshot your score just incase it's questioned.

    We hope that you will stick around after this contest as you will find Digiex does offer a lot. We were the first 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!

    Bonus Game!! - 10 posts required - Pacman


    Many of you may have been following the events that took place with the member KeyONE. He took part in our first contest and at the last minute broke the high score, it took him a while to send in the screenshot to prove his score as it didn't submit correctly and sadly we had announced the winner already. We made him a promise, and that was to find another key for him and we did. Sadly the morning before he was given it he decided to publicly attack us and bring chaos to the forum and had to banned.

    Therefore, in his honour we would like to announce an additional game which has been added last minute. Like the ones above it will end on Monday at 6pm British time. This gives you the chance to win the key which would have been his. You can either keep it yourself and hopefully rub it in too him, or give it to him (we hope not). Either way, we hope you enjoy the contest and the additional key, and hopefully teach keyONE a lesson in manners.


    How to enter:


    • Make 10 constructive posts on the forum. If more than one is classed as spam, you will be void
    • Play "Pacman" on Digiex Arcade.
    • Get the highest score by 18:00 on Monday the 1st of September (GMT - UTC)!
    • The winner will have a key private messaged to them.
    • As an extra, please rub it in to keyONE that you got his key.

    Rules and notes are the same as the contests above, please read them before taking part.

    I think you should look at London time and that's now GMT +1 and not GMT.
    The forum clock will show what you set in your options.

    He is right. Remember, it's DST in Europe now, which means the clocks are being set forward one hour, making the UK not GMT but GMT +1.

    Uberbreakout was a bad choice as the game just takes too long.

    BTW I AM NUMBER 1 ATM

    And what did keyONE do, when you say, he attacked you / made chaos - cant find any of his posts?

    And yeah, if I will win the key, I will give it to him ;) When I'm done with it, he can have it :P

    Correct, we will not tolerate childish flame wars, especially when it’s a matter that can be and was being sorted out through private messages.

    Good luck to anyone playing Pacman, I’ll be impressed if anyone beats my score (I’m not in the competition anyway)

    So keyONE did win the first game and because you announced the winner too early, he did not get the key? And as I remember, he posted that you deleted the screenshot, and not getting the key or something and he will be banned, because he posted it in the forum, so everyone can see it. I think I even replyed to that post - why did you ban him then?

    On the other side, one player less...
