2017 343ICF Christmas Tree

343industries Community Forum Christmas Tree

gallery_1_37_21175.png

 

It’s that time of year again! Thanksgiving and Christmas are fast approaching and of course, that means that the annual forum Christmas tree is being put up.

For those of you who are new here and don’t know, every year community members donate games, Xbox live memberships and other items that are distributed back out to the community. I’ve participated for several years now, and I even won an Xbox a few years back, so you never know what cool things you may be given by a fellow member. The goal of this as always, is to get the community to interact in a fun and cheerful way, and get you some cool presents in the process as well.

How does this work:

You must be a member of the forums to participate, so if you are here through the discord, you’ll have to sign up. After that, all you do is post somewhere below, what you will be giving away, whether it's a code, a physical item or some other gift/service. Additionally you can post what you would like, this is especially good if something that someone else has donated catches your eye.

As people post what they are giving away, I will update this post with a list of what is up for grabs and by who. The week after Christmas, gifts will be distributed to the people that have won. If you donate, I will PM you on the site, to tell you who to get in contact with about getting people their gifts.

You may request a certain gift even if you do not donate anything, however, priority will be given to those who have donated when distributing gifts.

*If you say you are going to give something, please follow through with it, especially since someone may be very excited to receive their gift!

 

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of the 343iCF Staff!

I’d like to give away 3 Platinum REQ Packs for Halo 5 to different people and a 2 Week XBL Gold Trial.

 

Happy holidays!

I still have some ancient Gears of War 1 and 2 codes, dunno if they're still alive so I'll back them up with actual gifts of these games should they no longer work.

I also have 2 codes for "Unit armor" in Star Wars the Old Republic that I'd like to add since I don't own that game.

 

Happy Xmas =.=

I'm throwing in a voucher for me to buy 1 person a $60 game in US monies. Then I'll ship it to the person who wants the game. 

 

It can be any game so long as it's around $60 in US monopoly bucks (no really, REAL money). Digital, physical, I have no quarrel.

Ayy, that's a nice thing of you to do bud. I'm interested, keep me posted, but I want to see if anyone else wants it too.

 

In the event no one else claims it I have a Nintendo Switch game in mind that I could use with an eshop gift card.

I feel kinda bad because I want it too. Im gonna have to say im interested in SD's offer as well. I have a game in mind.

 

I have a $20 Xbox Gift Card (US) and a code for Dark Souls (backwards compatible for Xbox One) to give to those who want them.

I'm putting my Halo 5 OST disk I won from Forge Hubs charity stream under our hypothetical tree. It's still in the original clear packaging. I just won't be able to send it internationally, so only in the United States. Sorry ;~;

I too am interested in this, could we potentially get two games for a total of 60 USMonies? Like for example, say PUBG for Xbox One, and MCC? Or any amount of games totaling 60 USMonies, as long as they are digital?

 

If not this, I wouldn't mind one of those Platinum REQs DD is offering :D

I'm upping the ante.

 

I'm now doing $120 (US dabloons) worth of games.

 

Also, 2 things:

  1. If ya'll want to split the cash so that like 3 people are able to get something out of that $120 instead of having just 2 $60 games then that's fine, but please be civil about who gets what. I don't care if you each get a $40 game or card or what, just figure something out. Oh yeah, and please convert the cost of what you want to US money or something.
  2. Additionally, exactly when the product is shipped or given to you depends on what's being bought, and when I'm able to ship the game(s). I'm in a transitional phase from house to house, so the items may take as late as February to get to you. The costs of shipping and handling do not factor into the original budget for the game: I'll cover that expense.

 

Murry to da kreestmaas for the all.  :thumbsup:

You could gift people games digitally too via Xbox Store, (not sure about play station or other consoles) that way you don't have to worry about shipping as much.

:D

Sorry for the delay, we're trying to get this done as soon as we can.  :police: 

 

In the meantime we can figure out the available options for my submission:

  1. 4 people ask me to buy them each $30 worth of games/content.
  2. 3 people for $40 games/content each.
  3. 2 people for $60 each, same rules.
  4. 1 person for $120 if there is a unanimous vote to do so: 1 person disagreeing with this will make me not do it.

We need to decide what's going to occur here. I don't want to spread the budget too thin, and everyone gets less money to work with because everyone wants something. Maybe restricting the number of people who get a budget will be a good thing, but I'd rather you people choose. But please be civil about it. Christmas 2018 I'm upping the ante, so this won't be the last time I do this.  :thumbsup:

 

Shipping & Handling is not factored in, and if the game/content is a code I'll send the code to you. Otherwise I'm going to ship the games/content to wherever you are, and I don't care where you live: you're going to get this stuff. The only thing I can't control is when it gets to you, and what happens along the way. If the games/content are mismatched, or broken I'll just rebuy these things again. Also, it may take awhile for me to ship the stuff like I've said before due to being in a traditional state between living quarters.

 

Also, try and find the games/content on a reputable site as my bank will deny any smaller outfit due to me having bought allot of stuff in the past holiday season. Places like Amazon, Steam, and Xbox.com are legit for me, and Gamestop, Target, Best Buy, and Walmart are the only game retailers near me I can buy physical crap from.

If we're going the 4 people route, I would ask for PUBG for Xbox totaling $30.

If we're going the 3 people route, I would ask for MineCraft and RWBY Grimm Eclipse, both for xbox totaling $40.

If we're going with the other options, I will kindly turn down your gracious offer :)

Looks like my $120 thingy is the only thing that's being gifted: I'll give Kakashi_Hatake, InfinityDusk, and Mr Kittens and Gibberish each a $40 USD budget to buy whatever.

 

For everyone else, you may do with your gifts as you wish.

 

 

The 2017 343 Industries Community Forum Christmas Tree is officially over! 

 

Happy (Late) Holidays!  :fun:  :santa:  :twin:
