Oh wow! I have to say this was completely unexpected. I've been having a seriously bad day(last couple days) Man this made me feel so much better, seriously.

I'm excited! I guess I better get practicing! :-D

I appreciate the thought, but I never was able to get the expired demo to work - so I'm going to pass.

There is probably someone out there that needs the system more than I do anyway.

Your choice 3vi1, but we are also willing to help folks get setup with a copy of the full game, which will be required to play.

Also, I think you're just having an issue with the demo expiring. If you set your system calendar date back, it should work.

Even if I got it working, I've got an old man's reflexes, one good eye, never owned any of the Quake or Unreal games (FPS + me usually equals motion sickness), and have no motherboard that would be compatible with the 4th runner-up prize. Heheh...  

So, let someone else have my spot.

Thanks again for the consideration though.

Holy crap, I clicked on my name and i've been a member here for 6 years!! I knew i've been coming to HH for a LONG time but I didn't realize it's been that long heh. Funny thing is I remember visiting this site too, long before I became a member :-P

And I feel pretty nerdy for this but HH has been my home page for a LONG time :-x lol

This is going to make me sick but I going to have to forfiet my chance! I havent play games since I had brain surgery but my cognitive thinking skill and reflexes are non existant  now! I dont have the ability to focus on things. Its really bad and I dont have a chance  or the software much less a connection!Im sorry if I put anyone through xtra stress for me entering but I even misunderstood  the contest too.Im really thankfull that I got picked but I really dont have the ability to compete so give my slot to someone else that can and deserves it! And again to Marco and Dave like I said sometimes my brain doesnt quite work like it used to and I apologize for any inconvenence.Good luck to all.  mentaldisorder  Thanks for the mention!

Congratz to all the winners!

@ AMD: Couldn't someone else play for you? I would, but my PC's not up to UT3. I'm sure someone else would be able to, it'd be a shame if you lost your position.

Yeah Idk how you guys wanna work it, but I would play for AMD. Anyway Congrats to you all. All deserving winners!Big Smile

^^X2..

I'd love to upgrade my PC (Athlon XP-Mobile Based rig) with a Phenom II :D

Enter the Replacement Killers, and I LOVE IT!Yes

3v1 and AMD: don't throw in the towel just yet. I am sure there are plenty of people here that would be willing to play in the tourney for ya and let you keep your gear that you deserve for winning. I would if I wasn't already in it. Maybe Davo could even hook the "SUBS" up with a free t shirt or flash drive or something for being good sports. Of course it's all up to the powers that be but as a contestant I am perfectly ok with this. Anyone else want to second this notion.

 

Edit: oh yeah, almost forgot, thanks guys. I am pysched. can't wait till the 29th. guess I should be checking the calender though and let the wifey know that she's not allowed to make any plans for me that evening.

Well I work until 4p.m.(1p.m.GMT) and I have a Team Fortress 2 match at 9:30p.m. EST(6:30p.m.GMT) which should last around a hour, but I can join the end of the game if you guys are already going at it.

Dave Im not sure if this is fesable or just a stupid question! Is their any way other forum members to waych the game as its played out or keep track of the players while their in play! Im not sure if its possible thats why I wanted to ask.Hey I got to root for my main man mental of course but it would be cool if we could watch the battle. Im sure its going to be a great battle and want to thank mental for your willingness to do this ,and Dave , Marco and all you other guys. Best of luck to all the players!Big Smile
