Sword of the Stars 2: Giveaway Contest [CLOSED]

By on October 18th, 2011 3:14 pm

I thought it was time we had another contest at Space Sector. So, I’m proud to announce that Space Sector has teamed up with Paradox Interactive and we’ll host a giveaway contest at Space Sector. Paradox will offer 10 copies of Sword of the Stars 2: Lords of Winter, this 28th of October. But that’s not all. Paradox was generous and in addition to the 10 SotS2 copies it will also offer 20 copies of Sword of the Stars Complete Collection (the entire SotS original series).

This means that the lucky 10 will get Sword of the Stars II and Sword of the Stars Complete Collection. The next set of 10 lucky ones will receive a copy of Sword of the Stars Complete Collection, which is a great way to enter in the SotS Universe also. So, in total there will be a total of 20 prize winners in this contest.

How to enter in the contest

  1. Follow on twitter: @spacesector@swordofthestars@PDXinteractive – OR – like Space Sector, Sword of the Stars and Paradox on facebook
  2. Tweet for Sword of the Stars. Example: “I will eXplore, eXpand, eXploit & eXterminate the universe! @spacesector @swordofthestars @PDXinteractive to win a copy” – OR – share this blog post URL in facebook
  3. For the social network non-users out there (that don’t want to join these networks) you can still enter the contest. You folks can forget about points 1 and 2, you just need to subscribe the Space Sector newsletter (in the sidebar to the right) and Paradox’s newsletter by registering in their forum. This is not a big deal to ask I guess, and you can unsubscribe both newsletters later at any time if you wish. Although I think you’d lose a great opportunity to stay in touch with Space Sector’s news ;)
  4. Make a comment in this blog post below. Submit your name and email in the comment form (we’ll use that email to contact you if you’re one of the winners). Let us know also what you’ve done regarding point 1,  2 and 3. Don’t forget to include your twitter id or facebook id (for points 1 and 2) or the username you used to register the Paradox forum (for point 3).

I will give examples of how you guys should post your comments to become eligible:

@<your twitter name here> has followed @spacesector, @swordofthestars and @PDXinteractive and tweeted

Another example:

<your facebook name here> liked Space Sector, Sword of the Stars and Paradox and shared this post in facebook

One more:

Registered Space Sector newsletter and registered in Paradox’s forum with username [the username you used to register in paradox’s forum here].

We’ll pick the winners on the 28th of October 2011 at 12:00 am EST. I’ll check those to see if they fulfilled all points, if they shared and what it was. Edit: I forgot to mention. Contest closes on 27th October 12:00am EST. After that point you can no longer enter the contest. I’ll signal that by changing the contest status to [CLOSED].

The contest winners will be generated randomly with the help of random.org

Games will be provided via Steam.

Good luck!

Cheers

      I have added @Spacesector and @PDXinteractive to my follow lists on twitter and definatly tweeted and will repeat the tweet periodically so that “I will eXplore, eXpand, eXploit & eXterminate the universe! @spacesector @swordofthestars @PDXinteractive to win a copy”!

    Thanks for the contest. Really looking forward to Sword of the Stars 2. Good luck to everyone.

  5. David Carron says:

    Done and done on Facebook.

    dscarron@yahoo.com

    And let me say that this cite rocks. No one else scratches my 4x itch…

  6. aReclusiveMind says:

    Disappointing that more and more of these contests are going the facebook/twitter route. I have no aspirations to use those social networking services, which I understand is my choice and prevents my entry in the drawing. This seems like less of a contest and more of a marketing campaign to me. Disappointing to see as I’ve been enjoying reading the posts on this site, a site which covers a genre that is seriously lacking exposure.

    • Adam Solo says:

      Well, there’s marketing also involved for sure. The request to follow spacesector (in twitter or facebook) is in pursuit to reach more readers for this genre. I don’t see a problem with that. The request to follow Paradox and the Sword of the Stars game in fb or twitter is a small compensation for the contest supplier I guess.

      I tried my best to make the contest simple to enter and profitable for everybody but I was indeed thinking a while back that rules as they were leave people who don’t want to use social networks out of the contest. I’ll try to think of a way for those people to also be able to enter the contest. \Edit: There you go, I added a rule to allow people that don’t use/want to use facebook or twitter to enter the draw. Don’t want to see any Space Sector reader disappointed.

      I hope you don’t get disappointed with the contest and that that will not hurt your enjoyment of the blog. The idea was totally the opposite. To create a fun contest, offer some goodies and yes, make some publicity to the publisher. I don’t see the big deal. Paradox was kind and generous and I think they deserve a little bit of exposure for supplying the goods for the contest, don’t you think?

  7. Daniel gaudreault says:

    Already following on facebook and posted the link there.

    daniel.gaudreault@gmail.com

    Love this site. Always excellent news and reviews.

  8. Anthony says:

    Mike mouth has liked Space Sector, Sword of the Stars and Paradox and shared this post in facebook. He is very very interested in his broke butt being able to play this game and showing it to his friends who, while rabid gamers, think that 4x games are some kind of pornography.

  9. Chewmonger says:

    Holy Smokes! A free copy?! Hell yes.

    Done and dusted on Facebook!

    Can hardly wait for the 28th. I’ve got my fingers crossed on both hands yo! Hope you guys sell a ton of copies.

    Cheers

  10. Most of it was already done… just needed to add Spacesector to my twitter, facebook and newsletter list… and of course completed also point number 2. Looking forward the results of next week ;-)

  11. Louis deGuerre says:

    Done point 1 and 2. Can’t wait for this game to be released !

    Email in plaintext is a bad idea as a mountain of spam will follow (contact me by twitter @LouisDeGuerre instead).

    • Adam Solo says:

      You’re right. I’ll make it clear in the rules that people don’t need to put their email address in the comment. Putting it in the form when submitting the comment is sufficient.

  12. JNG says:

    Following Paradox and SotS on Twitter, facebooked the link. Email available in the required field of the form.

  13. Seboss says:

    #1 and #2 are done. Long time follower of @PDXInteractive and @swordofthestars (and @solforce) already and really looking forward to SotS 2 :)

  14. Mike says:

    Oh great! Seems like the next gen 4X space game s coming :) Thank you Paradox!

  15. Flex1024 says:

    @Flex1024 has followed @spacesector, @swordofthestars and @PDXinteractive and tweeted.

  16. Damir says:

    Tweeted and following (as @peacegiverman)

  17. Gonçalo Pereira says:

    @Soulstrider has followed @spacesector, @swordofthestars and @PDXinteractive and tweeted.

    Am I supposed to also write this on twitter?

    • Adam Solo says:

      No. Besides following on twitter you do a tweet of your choice. The following is an example “I will eXplore, eXpand, eXploit & eXterminate the universe! @spacesector @swordofthestars @PDXinteractive to win a copy”. You can choose to retweet spacesector’s tweet for example (it’s the last one here http://twitter.com/#!/spacesector).

  18. Mika Hakonen says:

    Did the Twitter thing. I can’t wait for this game either. :D

      Check also my first comment. Where I say “I will give an example of how you guys should post your comments …”
      Don’t forget to include in the comment your facebook id, twitter id in case you go with point 1 and 2. If you go with point 3 you just need to supply the username you used to register in Paradox’s forum. Thanks, and good luck!
