We are hoping to have at least one winner.
I'm assuming it depends on what entries they get. For now, I believe it's one winner.

WOW, after today, the contest will be over, just feels like yesterday when I posted my first bug report! So, when will we know who won, tomorrow or like in a week? Sorry for asking a stupid question, I just want to know when the update will be. (Since Cana is doing lots of updating in the next 3 days, I can wait for this update :wink: )

This update will probably be next week at the earliest, because we need to determine how helpful the bug report actually was before determining who a winner is. And to confirm a previous quote, yes, we may have one winner, but we'll probably only send a t-shirt to the main winner. We may add more than one beta tester.

And yeah, there are a lot of things ending tomorrow!

Yea, it is time. Now we wait and see. But I would not bug Cana because she is doing LOTS of work this week. Anyway, I am glad to see all of those posts and at least have some competition :wink: And I wish the best of luck to all of you!

When Cana updates, only then will she choose the beta.

Cana, even if you get 2 or 3 testers, you'll need like 10, right?Maybe we could have a screenies contest or something fun, and the winner gets to be a tester.Or we could just have a contest for the heck of it because I know and you know that we all have had stressing weeks, and we need something fun to bond as a community.A screenies contest could be super fun and release tension, plus, I know we have some AMAZING photographers here.It never hurts to have fun, and it wouldn't be a tense, omg-we-have-to-reach-this-goal contest.It could be like a friendly duel between members.It'd be fun.Please, Cana?Pretty Please?*Waves $1000 in the air* we have this....And we need a break..

That sounds like fun :mrgreen: I would not mind doing other contests because I really want to be a beta tester and this would be a good opportunity to do something else other than play wolfquest. I am willing to help in any way I can :wink: But I dont think we will get more than 3 beta testers because it has been said before that they dont need them :(

We would only use people who can properly report bugs as beta testers, so a screenshot contest wouldn't help us determine how well someone can catch and report bugs. But perhaps we can have another contest at some point soon.

Will post an update to this contest later today or tomorrow... there are a couple bugs we are aware of, but didn't get enough bug reports on to help us actually fix them. So if you're still interested in becoming a beta tester, start looking into:
1) issues connecting to/staying in/starting games, and
2) issues with mate & pup AI (interactions with you & how they're programmed).

I'll post a more detailed update later, to let you know exactly what we're looking for. But at least you can start thinking about it now.

The contest has been updated on the first post- even if you don't want to be a beta tester or win a shirt/patch, we could really use as much help as we can get on solving these issues, so please consider entering regardless of the prize. Thank you!
