Listen up Heroes!

There has been a breach of security at Area 49, and something has escaped. Agent Eks wouldn't answer our questions as to what exactly who or what had escaped, he just kept saying "That's Classified" and then vanished.

Reports of strange sightings have hit our radar though and people are claiming they have seen mysterious flying objects in the sky hovering over fields and stealing live stock. When examining the scenes of these sightings there were always the same traces left behind... what we believe to be a message in a strange alien language reading:

"|/\|3 |-|4\/3 74|k3|\| 53\/3r4|_ 0f y0|_|r |\/|057 1|\|73|_|_193|\|7 |_1f3f0r|\/|5 c4p71\/3 f0r s7|_||)y1|\|9"

Latest news points towards an alien invasion and that a takeover has already begun and they have started taking over the minds of the Developers. It is up to your heroes to investigate and for that, we want some proof.


What do I need to do?


We want you to head out on to the Battlefield and hunt down these invaders. Your primary task is to capture screenshots of Easy Studios staff wearing BOTH a suit and an alien on their shoulder and post them in this thread. Easy Studios staff members will be wreaking some chaos on the Battlefield over the course of this event... so keep your eye's peeled for them.

- Go in game and find Easy Studios staff members wearing an agent suit, along with an alien shoulder pet (They must be wearing BOTH the suit and an alien, if no alien is present then your entry will NOT be eligible)
- Take a screenshot add a caption and post it in this thread before Saturday 1st September @ 07:00 UTC


How long do I have to do this?


The event has already begun and will end on Saturday 1st September @ 07:00 UTC
In order to be eligible to win a prize you entry must be submitted before the contest end date and time.


What can I get for participating?


At the end of the event we will be picking 3 winners. Each winner will get to pick:
- Any ONE Hardboiled Heroes set (Jimmy’s Set, Sams PI’s Set, Agent Eks’ Set or Agent Cobb’s Set)
- Plus any ONE Alien Pet of their choice (Dicky “Flattop” Taylor or Fenwick P. Wainwright)

We will contact the winners via PM to requests your choice of prizes.

5.    Winner Determination: Winners will be determined according to the process set forth below.

6.    Notification:  The potential winners will be notified by mail, email or phone. Except where prohibited, each potential winner will be required to sign and return an Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability and Publicity Release (or Declaration of Compliance, if potential winner is a Canadian resident, or confirmation of eligibility form, and liability/publicity release if potential winner is a UK resident), which must be received by Sponsor, within ten (10) days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent, in order to claim his/her prize.  If any potential winner cannot be contacted, fails to sign and return the Affidavit of Eligibility, Liability and Publicity Release (or Declaration of Compliance or confirmation of eligibility form, and liability/publicity release) within the required time period, fails to answer the skill-testing question correctly (if applicable), or prize is returned as undeliverable, potential winner forfeits prize. In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the applicable prize to an alternate winner using the skill-based criteria set forth above.

Prizes : Each winner will receive one (1) Hard-boiled Heroes set of their choice (Jimmy’s Set, Sams PI’s Set, Agent Eks’ Set or Agent Cobb’s Set) and one (1) Alien Pet of their choice (Dicky “Flattop” Taylor or Fenwick P. Wainwright). Approximate value per prize is $17 and €12.50. Total value of the prizes are $51 and €37.50.  If for any reason an advertised prize is unavailable, Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value. Winners may submit multiple entries, but are only eligible to win one prize. The odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible entries received and relative skill of entrants.  

7.    General Terms:  
a.    By participating in this Contest, each participant agrees: (1) To the extent allowable under applicable law, to release and hold harmless Sponsor and its agents from any and all liability  or any injury, loss, damage, right, claim or action of any kind arising from or in connection with this Contest or any Contest-related activity or the receipt, possession, use or misuse of any prize won, except for residents of the United Kingdom, France and Germany with respect to claims resulting from death or personal injury arising from EA’s negligence and for residents of the United Kingdom with respect to claims resulting from the tort of deceit or any other liabilities that may not be excluded by law;  (2) That EA’s decisions will be final and binding on all matters related to this Contest; (3) That by accepting a prize, EA may use your name and place of residence online or in any other media, in connection with this Contest, without payment or compensation to the winner or anyone else, except where prohibited ; and (4) The Contest is governed by the laws of the United States and all claims must be resolved in the United States.

c.    Winners are responsible for any applicable taxes on prizes.

8.    Winner(s) List: Winner List requests will only be accepted after the end date of the Promotion Period (listed above) and no later than November 6, 2012.  For the Winner List we will post the names of confirmed winners online after September 6, 2012 at http://www.battlefieldheroes.com.

I'll hunt you down (or not since I'm from New Zealand)

EDIT: Got about 100 screenies of Hugins Tongue

EDIT2: my first version, a bit unromantic though:
A more or less romantic meeting Heart

If you prefer a real romantic version, just tell me Big Grin and it's supposed to be a poem, so try to sometimes stress words differently than usual (for example unIcorn instead of Unicorn)
