Thanks for your interest, but this contest is now over. Keep checking The Escapist for more contests and giveaways in the future.


Damn. I could use something shiny like this so I can finally join the PC Master Race (namely because I want to play XCOM 2) but I hate liking stuff on Facebook like that.

So good luck to those who enter but I shall have to bow out of this one :(

Oh, they're Intel boards. Thanks for including Australia, but nevermind.


Nice I can participate :P, you might want to fix that. Can't avoid to kinda smile at this misspelling since everyone keeps spelling the name of the country as Columbia.

Ew....a Facebook liking contest. I dislike it already. Okay, bye.

Ha, Biostar. They don't even have a market here where I live. Most people would pick ASRock over them anyday.

Like I said before, elsewhere:

No, these are not fun. They aren't even giveaways. They're marketing schemes, all of them.

Look at what you have to do:
1. Give them a facebook like, increasing their popularity by having you do unpaid advertising for them
2. Do research on the company (that you've probably never heard of before) in order to answer their quiz.

To top it all off, by entering the contest, you've given them the right to use your name, likeness, voice, picture, and alias without consent or additional compensation. That's not even if you win. All participants sign that right to privacy away, except where legally prohibited.

Not to mention all the people they will probably be selling your personal information to.

This isn't a "giveaway". This is a profit for The Escapist and a profit for BIOSTAR. This is an ad. As a pub club member, I don't want to see ads. I paid not to see ads, did I not? They should be removed from my view like the rest of them.

If they really want to do a real Giveaway, they'd allow you to opt-in by clicking a button, and then send you your prize if you've won. That's it. That's what a giveaway is. No facebook likes or tweets or researching companies that are 18x smaller than Nvidia needed.
