NS2 WC Horizon bracket prizes

I have a simple grievance. it has been several months since my (former) team Mimic won the NS2WC horizon bracket. Our team, as well as Scurvy, Singularity, and one other team (Quactus i think?) were promised prizes. First there was mention of graphics cards or cpus, but no promises. Finally, months after the contest ended, it was revealed to me and a few others by zefram that the prize is actually "ns2 merch" like t-shirts and posters and shit. Naturally we would all have preferred expensive technology, but merch from the game we love is appreciated.

I have yet to receive anything. My teammates have yet to receive anything. I don't think anyone has received any such promised prize. I don't like bitching, and held my tongue for several months (aside from bugging zefram every other day.) I think we have waited long enough. Pull a few bucks out of that Subnautica game that people will stop playing after 2 months, and give us our prizes. I've heard Hugh was in charge of the horizon bracket prizes. Where our stuff be, Hugh?

THANKS FRIENDS

    While we're at it, the NS2WC 3rd/4th place finalists were promised Logitech gear and all I heard is that "physical stuff takes time" and that was quite a while ago.

    What about the people the made donations to the NS2WC, and were supposed to get posters and other stuff as well. Been a long while now and still nothing. :(

    Wasabi made a post a while back about ns2wc posters. He can't ship them till he has everyone's address... or something along those lines.

    @mendasp As for the Logi gear, ask Hugh. I heard hes got a good story about that.

    at first zef said only winner will get one big prize, then he changed it to all four getting something smaller. TAP got really mad.

    Was just over a month ago, maybe @WasabiOne‌ has an update since then.

    Yes, I've heard some stuff, which is interesting, since I was requested to send all of our addresses for the stuff, which I provided like 2 weeks after the Cologne event...

    I'm starting to think our address information was sent straight to Nigeria.

    they also said last season a team would get prizes, and the winner never received the prizes wasabione was suppose to send, they even made a thread about it complaining.

    which is why when i heard we would get prizes i didn't believe it, but was hoping for it

    Not to be a dick but in the past the Horizon Bracket was clearly for people to just keep having some games for fun - there were rarely ever any mentions of prizes.

    You should probably directly contact the organizer instead of necro'ing this thread.

    This was already answered in another thread, Satyr, about the exact same thing. If you can't be bothered to check it, well, I don't know what to tell you. I'm closing this thread so you can't uselessly bump it any more.
