Great job, and congrats to all. Will have to try some of these out when I re-install for the patch/bonus pack.

...

Not to bring the tone down or anything, but again why does it seem like they're trying to hide all that great content? I thought the MSUC was all about promoting the brand and stirring up interest/buzz in the franchise. If that's the case, they can't be bothered to post a simple site/page with previews and non subscription-based downloads? Didn't they maintain a whole MSUC page at epicgames.com back in the day? Seriously Epic - a bunch of text and links to Fileplanet do not excitement make. At least not for anyone outside the community. Suck up the expense to pay a web monkey to spend a whole day creating rich content for all this stuff.

Odd that the results haven't been posted on the MSUC site or at the Epic forums (officially I mean, someone posted a thread linking here).

But it's good to see that they're at least trying.

Some people just like to bitch I guess... *looks in mirror*

Edit: And while I'm at it, they should compile all of the winners of each round into a single downloadable content pack. I think people would be more apt to try stuff out if it was more hassle-free. Not a bitch, just a suggestion.

Not to spread paranoia... but after scourin' the interwebs for the last half hour, I have yet to find an official post anywhere that confirms this isn't just someone's MSU predictions taken out of context .

Also, none of the supposed 'winners' seem to have received any email notification yet. Last time, all winners were notified of their victory the day before the announcement... I hate to say it... but with no reliable source mentioned, there's currently nothing to confirm that this announcement isn't just a hoax .

Well it's been announced Ve3d, and there is a video montage of most of the winners in there.

Seems pretty legit to me.

Someone has to be real douchebag to pull off a hoax like this.

Look at it this way it took a long time just to get this much info, I assume it's going to take along time for the official forums update and emails to go out.

Plus there is an official press release on the first post. I doubt anyone will go to all that effort to post predictions....just my thoughts. Also don't forget WarTourist was on the forefront of phase 1, granted he is no longer the core contact point and driving force I assume those taking control now will eventually get to the forum postings and emails.

There's a press contact at the bottom of the article here:
http://www.gamesindustry.biz/article...ntest-revealed

I doubt it's fake, but it is weird that it hasn't been posted officially at Epic or the MSUC site.

im a bit suspect because last time epic emailed the winners first.. this time, the community knew i won before i did.... that doesn't seem right to me..

We got the info straight from Epic, guys. Unless their PR is mistaken, it's legit.

Come on guys, you know we aren't going to post something like this unless it comes straight from our contacts at Epic.

It's 100% guaranteed.

If anyone wants something more official, the link to the planetunreal article has been on the MSUC site all day anyway. Just have to dig a bit.
