City of Heroes winners announced

City of Heroes winners announced

The City of Heroes competition is now officially closed, and the winners are announced below.

That's it, folks - it's all over. Our City of Heroes competition is now officially closed.

In conjunction with NCSoft, we offered readers the chance to win a load of prizes including copies of the game, t-shirts and limited edition goodies to celebrate the release of the new expansion for the super-powered hit MMORPG.

The question we put to you was simple enough; If you could have one super-power, what would it be and what would you use it for? We received loads of entries which ranged from the lewd and crude to the thoughtful and useless. We had to pick out five winners though, so hear are out choices.

In runner-up position were the following entries, each of whom win a copy of the City of Heroes and Villains combined edition and a Hero Statesman figurine;

"My superpower would be the ability to resonate at the frequency of any object. So I could make my hand resonate and the frequency of a wall/person/whatever and it would fall apart. Leaving me unharmed of course." (from Spacecowboy92

"I would have health-regenerative powers and I would take Extreme Sports to The Extreme, and also be able to customise cases with little fear of cutting myself!" (From Tibby)

"The ability to control atoms ... or in other words create anything with the power of my mind, so if anyone bothers me I could do some crazy shit like turning their chair into a turd, or create an uber-sword to impale them with!" (From Dire_Wolf)

"If I could have a superpower my choice, I'd have the power to morph my hands into different things such as dremels and screwdrivers. Why? It'd be REALLY when you "need" to fix something, or just mod something." (From Jokkocze)

In first place however, winning a copy of the game, a t-shirt, posters, two character statues and lots more heroic goodies is Jazzle, who may actually have super-powers already it seems...

"My superpower would be the ability to change the law of statistics so that I always win."

Congratulations to the winners - to whom prizes are currently on there way - and commiserations to the losers. If you want to pass on your congratulations, or just speculate about what will happen in season two of Heroes, then hope into our forums.

As was stated, he seems to already have it. :|
Other than that, it's an enviable choice with admirable wording.

I was told before the weekend that I'd been picked as Runner Up, so the news just got even better!

Thanks to bit-tech, and to NCSoft.

Oh what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practice to deceive.

I'll get Joe to check up on when the prizes will be sent on Monday. :)
CardJoe 9th July 2007, 09:04 Quote
Was planning on doing that anyway :)

Update: Been chasing this up for you guys and Tom, who has the prizes, is on holiday until Wednesday. I'll let you know when I know more.

aaw.. Thought they were gonna be sent out a week ago :/
CardJoe 9th July 2007, 12:54 Quote
They may well have been sent out already, we won't know until it's confirmed. Bear in mind that there was a postal strike going on here in the UK recently, which likewise delayed products coming to us for review by a week.
Jokkocze 9th July 2007, 13:47 Quote
We'll have to wait and see then :)
dire_wolf 9th July 2007, 14:39 Quote
Yeah thanks for looking into it :D

any further news on the prizes' whereabouts, CardJoe?
CardJoe 13th July 2007, 09:13 Quote
Just got news actually, prizes are being shipped out RIGHT NOW. Supposedly there was a mixup at the PR firm for NCSoft and the PR I dealt with was on holiday, but assumed the prizes had been shipped off without him present. They hadn't and nobody else knew where they were etc.

Don't worry, should be with you soon. :D

Good news! recieved my swag this morning, just installing the game now :D
CardJoe 18th July 2007, 10:20 Quote
Good to hear! Apologies again on the slight delay, but free swag is always worth is ;)
jezmck 19th July 2007, 11:44 Quote
Just got mine through the office mail! Quite a haul.
Will post pics later if anyone's interested.
CardJoe 19th July 2007, 11:48 Quote
Sure, i'd be glad to see them!
Jokkocze 19th July 2007, 15:30 Quote
I'd like to see piccies aswell! Still havent recieved my stuff. Guess they might be here tomorrow..
CardJoe 19th July 2007, 15:42 Quote
They may take a little longer to get to you Jokkocze as they are being shipped out of the UK. If they don't turn up in a day or two then let me know and I'll get back on to the relevant companies. They've confirmed with me that all prizes have been sent out, but I'll make sure there are no problems or delays if possible.

Got my stuff today. I were kinda hoping for a figurine, but all I got was a tiny little heroclix figure (that even were all broken. Base were cracked and the figure were almoast split in half).. got really dissapointed :/
Bit-tech should've written "heroclix figure" instead of "Hero Statesman figurine"
dire_wolf 20th July 2007, 20:09 Quote
Hey man, that was a bit disapointing i'll agree but you can't really moan when it's free :D

Bloody 'ell I do rhym when i've had a drink . . .
Jokkocze 20th July 2007, 20:10 Quote
Nah, but it was broken, so I can still moan ;)
CardJoe 23rd July 2007, 09:53 Quote
New one sent out to you shortly, so no worries ;)
Jokkocze 23rd July 2007, 15:18 Quote
Yay :)
