The Sanriotown site, run by Hong Kong company Outblaze, launched a “Video Pitch” competition for 3,000 beta memberships based on the most creative videos about why people should be allowed into the game.
Yat Siu and his team at Outblaze were surprised to find among the 50,000 applicants, a large number of WoW players who wanted to trade in their roles as Orcs, Trolls (or whatever they are) to play in a game starring a kitten with no mouth.
Go figure. Battle fatigue, perhaps?
For other trailers, that do not necessarily include WoW, search for the tag HKOcontest.
Kitty fan alert!! Another trailer competition just began with a grand prize of a Hello Kitty Totebag.
Second prize? TWO Hello Kitty Totebags. (Just kidding, Hello Kitty – and WoW – fans!!)
