Announcing the Winners of the WoW Caption Contest!

Announcing the Winners of the WoW Caption Contest!

image

Over the past week we've been accepting submissions for our first WoW Action Figure Caption Contest. Your entries were both hilarious and horrific, which is exactly what we asked for, so thanks! Now two lucky folks will be walking away with a few magnificent models each, which boast elaborate attention to detail, express each character's own unique nuances, and stand approximately six inches tall. Congratulations to the victors who both picked the same image, unequivocal proof that gnomes are silly. We've also listed honorable mentions below their respective images.

'Don't forget the Mountain Dew, we're raiding tonight'

That was my personal favourite, although maybe I didn't really get the other ones because I never actually played WoW.

Wait, what?

I didn't even know this was happening. Clearly I completely missed the announcement somehow.

I feel extremely sorry for the people who managed to lose this.

Weird, apart from Odbac, all these leading entrants joined the Escapist on the same day (27 March 2012) and haven't really been active since.

Anyone else think that's a little fishy?

Of course the Princess Bride quote wins

That movie is full of win.

And I feel extremely sorry for losing. I thought my Pringles entry would have warranted at least an honourable mention until I read the winners.

April Fools Prank, perhaps?

The "Grand Prize Winner" is just a rip off of The Princess Bride. If you haven't seen it watch it. Hilarious movie.

Blizzard advertised the contest on their Facebook, so a lot of new users likely came to the site through that.

I swear you all are forever looking to uncover a conspiracy, hehe.

I can't believe I spent a good 20 minutes thinking up original, creative captions with a basis in WoW gameplay and lore just to be beaten by pop culture references.

I usually never post things like this, since I actually enjoy seeing superior creative works winning various contests I've entered, as that gives me an opportunity to look them over and improve my own works in the future, but this...

This was totally unexpected and mindboggling.

It's not even personal. I didn't have to win. I just wish someone who actually submitted something good won instead of this.
