You need to be 21 to enter the contest? Man, that bites. Can you guys do the contest again in 4 years?

you think -that- sucks? you also have to be from the US or Canada.

if i were to think up a contest:

a) where the participants wouldn't have to know a thing but their own name,

b) in a time where the internet is absolutely everywhere and

c) that is about a game that has the most international spread ever

d) and probably most of the players for this game are UNDER 21

i would NOT think up a contest with these stupid rules!

As far as the USA or Canada thing; this may have to do with International Transportation or Customs Laws.

As a former Customs Broker, there are rules & regulations governing this, and shipping can be a nightmare.

Just a thought...

I can assure you guys that excluding international residents and citizens under 21 isn't avoidable. Dakota, GameSpy's prized law-boy, has been trying to work around these limitations for quite some time. The truth is, there is only so much that can be done. Hey, being under 21 myself, I feel your pain! /~unreal/ubb/html/smile.gif

You think people are actually gonna be honest about their age? I like these rules cause it increases my chances if they actually check the age of the winner. /~unreal/ubb/html/smile.gif

Enjoy your age as it happens....each age group has its rewards and disadvantages...that never changes...from young to old.

yeah but being under 21 ur most likly to play these games then over 21's sucks thats an understatement.
And also not affending n e one here who is over 21 under 21 more likly to kick over 21's butts since being younger most of use have faster reactions.

What?

I'm pretty sure that whichever contest the people in this thread were talking about is over now, and anyone who contributed to this thread back in November 1999 has moved on from this discussion ;).
