    Post Sven Co-op Meet & Greet Contest!

    EDIT: Contest cancelled. Happy April Fools day

    In our last post, we've concluded the Mapping Contest and handed out prizes to the best Sven Co-op mappers out there. To be fair, we want to start another contest where everyone is able compete and be creative! We present to you:

    The Sven Co-op Meet&Greet Contest!

    That's right. This is your chance to meet up with the infamous development team of your favourite mod!* What would you ask Sven if you saw him in real-life, which features would you request from Sniper and wouldn't you love to share a beer with the forum admins Hezus and Nih? Well, this is your chance! All you need to do is be creative!*

    For our Meet&Greet contest, we've chosen the following theme:

    "Bring Half-Life to Real-Life!"

    How does it work? Your task is to bring an element of Half-Life/Sven Co-op's universe to real life. Take a picture of your toilet and edit a headcrab in there, let a voltigore run through your back garden, release a pack of houndeyes in your school, hold a crowbar, dress up like one of your favorite characters or create a medkit out of cardbord. You can also turn the contest around and put yourself in the Half-life universe! Photoshop yourself into a Sven Co-op map, let yourself rappel down from an osprey, dance with the gonomes... in other words: Take a picture of yourself or your area and start editing!

             

    The best, funniest and most clever entry will win the awesome Meet & Greet with the Sven Co-op Team at an as-yet unknown location!*

    To sign up read THIS PAGE and from us all at Sven Co-op: good luck and we'll hope to meet you soon in Real-Life!   

    * Conditions apply.

    Since when did the SC team have the resources to fly to a central location? XD

    Hey! What's the matter with you guys, giving us a fake address to your business!


    I demand a refund! Off with Sven's head! Down with Hezus! All those years and we've been played for fools; I bet that donation money was never sent to Sven to begin with! I bet he doesn't even exist! SVEN COOP IS A CONSPIRACY!!!

    (t) Winner must, in advance of the Meet&Greet™, pay for: (i) plane fares and other travel expenses for all members of the Meet&Greet™ Party from their home locations to Winner's home country and location, (ii) conveniently located accommodation of not less than four (4) star rating not more than twenty (20) kilometers from Winner's home and major tourist attractions for all Meet&Greet™ Party members, and (iii) all other reasonable expenses anticipated by Meet&Greet™ Party members (u) A full list of aforementioned expenses will be provided to Winner prior to the Meet&Greet™ taking place (v) Failure to meet all prior mentioned expenses within seven (7) days of expenses notification will place Winner in default of payment and Contest will be rendered null and void
    Hehehe, grand prize is paying for plane tickets. Even if I had the money to cover that, there are no 4 star lodging establishments within 20km of me, although some of the cabins here could be considered tourist attractions...

    Hey, I've got tourist attractions and... um, 4-star hotels? Well, no... unless you added a couple of them together.
    But I can't afford anything right now - can I still enter?

    Good thing the airlines don't allow weapons onboard anymore, someone might go hunting the elusive Snipe, oops left off the "R".

    Damn, I wish I had awesome photoshop skills. Now that I'm thinking about it, I wish I had photoshop installed on my laptop.

    BTW, does anyone know when does the contest end?

    Seems like it had to do with a threatening note involving chubby being sent to someone's house.

    Gimp is a little tougher to get the hang of, but it's free (legally); and then there's Gimpshop that tries to approximate the feel of PS.
    I believe entries must be submitted on or before the 7th.

    Its nice idea , the contest.April fools or not.

    Talking about weapons on board of an airplane , i wonder what they'd say about snarks ?
    -What are these ? Are they weapons ?
    -No these are my pets

    Not to mention spore launcher , that electric weapon or barnacle and some other tools

    Barnacle can be explained that its a hand extension for your disabled arm.It crabs stuff for you , but don't say to security what it does the stuff after it crabs that.

    I was going to use the original picture for something else, but just for today, I decided to repurpose it.
