Remember: Argue the point, not the person. Remain polite and constructive. Friendly forums have friendly debate. There's no shame in being wrong. If you don't have something to add, don't post for the sake of it. And don't be afraid to post thoughts you are uncertain about, that's what discussion is for.

no winners yet in any event.  is still any number o' unexpected events that can alter a release date even this late in the game.  anybody recall the ps:t gold foible? so, am thinking it is premature to declare a winner.

 

HA! Good Fun!

Opted for direct competition with TW3, eh? It's gonna be interesting.

 

They've bumped the Witcher 3 release date a couple of times. It's now at May 19.

 

Current competition is GTAV, but I'd say that's appealing to a very different market.

Two months is probably a big enough window for a playthrough but I thought mostly about marketing. Something tells me that game journals will be more preoccupied with previewing TW3 rather than reviewing PoE. But we'll see.

Drat I wasn't around when this thread was going. So with Gromnir's post in mind, I say ... March 28th! :p

not to be a wet blanket, but am thinking this thread functional died after the announcement that poe would not be released in 2014.  at that point, most folks had their submissions invalidated. some kinda suggestion were made that guesses past some non-specific date would result in a penalty and/or cost.  'course nothing were actual stated or decided.

 

*shrug*

 

in any event, we suspect taht the folks that initiated the idea got caught off-guard by the announcement that 20014 were no longer viable.  interest understandably disappeared.

 

even so, one must concede that leferd were the first to mention march 26, so at this point he seems to have the pole. congrats?

 

HA! Good Fun!

It's called strategery. Carrion feeders are probably my spirit-kin.

 

Anyways, going by the spirit of the "contest" --nobody legitimately guessed the correct date.

 

Maybe choose a date for going gold on the physical copies?

well going by the spirit o' the contest, the poster with the guess closest to the actual release date would likely be the winner.  as we don't current know the actual release date, we surely don't know the winner.  that being said, as the thread were abandoned following the change in release dates, it makes it kinda difficult to identify a fair cut-off for submissions. 

 

oh, and we do not look down 'pon carrion feeders.  gromnir is only one letter away from grimnir, so it would be bad luck for us to be ill-disposed to carrion feeders.

 

HA! Good Fun!
