Dreamteam prizes
Dear HLTV.org,

As all of us know, the ones who ended up winning any prizes in the Dreamteam game haven't received any prizes yet. As I am one of those who won a prize (about 5-6 months ago, can't remember corectly) I am wondering IF or WHEN this is going to happend. Since my private messages have been ignored I decided to post this question in the forums.

It is being dealt with, and it is not acceptable that it is taking so long, I agree with you totally there, measures are being taken to avoid this in the future. I am very sorry about the outrageous long delay, it is not how we want to conduct our business.

Thank you for a quick answer. I guess all we can do is wait. I remember that when the 2012 Gamegune DT was announced I saw some comments from users that won previuos DT's and didn't receive any prizes...so I estimate that HLTV is about 9-10 month overdue with the compensations.

Anyway thx for answering me.

Dear Nomad,

At least tell me one thing: will you guys at least send our prizes, delayed or not, will you ask our addresses to send the prizes? Just answer me please.

I'd also like to point out that most people do get their prizes, it's only the ones who don't that make posts (for obvious and good reasons). But unfortunately some countries postal systems are no good and things never arrive at the 'correct' destination. :( :(

Nomad is one of the smartest and trustworthy people i know, if he says he is measures are being taken to avoid it happening in future, you should believe it.

i didnt forget to write anything. I wrote #4 which was an open post before i replied in #5 (hence the consecutive numbers). #5 is a direct reply to something he wrote, where as #4 was open for all.

To my knowledge before the prizes are sent the winners of the respective DT must be announced. I'm quite sure that such an announcement hasn't been posted in regard of the 2012 Gamegune DT.

As I stated in the previous post I'm just glad that I got a response regarding this matter and an assurance that this "situations" are being handled.

I believe that... Last week i found one of those "fatboys" outside my door. It appears they mixed the city names "Odder" with "Odense" :DDDDDDD

One question, I placed 2nd in the CPH that it was long time ago... and where or when I have to put my personal details(address,city...)

I have to wait one pm of one admin or I have to sent it to anyone?

After the event, (about a month or so) there is a news post like this one:

http://www.hltv.org/news/7407-e-stars-seoul-dreamt..

In the post it asks for users to contact Nixon with their details. If you did not do this, you will not get the prize. The cut off for giving your information is one week after the winners are announced.

there is a 1 week deadline for giving your information while the announcing and sending of the stuff takes months? :P odd xD
2012-10-30 08:58:12
hmmm maybe i don't have right, but numbers of dreamteam contest is bigger than number of dreamteam winners posts. I open HLTV.org daily and i don't remember any dreamteam winners post in 2012...

sorry for English xD

Frankly I find it odd that you don't send a private message to the winners. I mean how long would it take for someone involved with HLTV.org to send 3 pm's ?

And Nixon is like the black hole of messages...you send one, you don't get anything in return :)
2012-10-30 12:01:38
this is easy... hltv.org delay announcing and sending prizes becouse they known that many of winners forget about dreamteam, and they don't answer on time for winners annoucing... There is any problem with announcing winners few day after event, go to post and send prizers??

sory for english ;)

What do we possibly gain by hoping people forget ? We don't own the prizes, they are donated. HLTV.org never even physically see's the prizes. We pass on the info and the vendor ships them.

2012-11-11 10:44:28
for me it is strange that people must wait 6 months for prize... futhermore they must visit hltv.org everyday if they don't want miss out on pm from admin...

I won DREAMTEAM to WCG 2011, and still do not get the prize, I wrote Admin Nixon, and he said that the prizes will come ... I'm still waiting =)
