And another broken link from Rekhan...

Can Europeans enter the contest? Because Boomtown requests your post address and i find that very odd. I guess Cryptic are only entering Americans into the Closed Beta, which wouldn't surprise me, but it would be nice if Cryptic had told us. Why else would they need our postal address to enter the competition?

It's pretty simple? Send an e-mail to the boomtown address provided. The e-mail should contain a caption that goes well with the screenshot they provided.

Another website I have to sign up for and get junk mail and crap for, no thanks...
If they are going to accept people into the beta, they should just read through the applications and accept people, that simple.

I thought, it's a shot at Closed Beta, so why not. So here's my caption:

Not even Captain Riker's famed Anbo-jyutsu could compare to this martial arts strike, one that not even the Borg could assimilate.
Not sure if it's a winner, but I chuckled at it.

You don't have to sign up. Just make the e-mail your caption with your address.

You clearly didn't even take a look at the competition. I usually don't go for the 'sign up and post to be in for a chance' contests, but this one only requires you send an e-mail.
