ASUS x r/PCGaming Giveaway - Results Announcement

by Jeremiah-ASUS. Posted on Aug 02, 2020    12    8


The results are in… and there were literally thousands of them! We were hoping to make a fun event for this summer, and the response from the /r/PCGaming community was amazing (and, yes, we read them all!). We had such a great time working on this and reading your replies. There were some genuinely funny stories in this thread, and we were glad to receive the suggestions and feedback you gave.

While many people thought up smart builds for the Gleam portion, the ones we selected went above and beyond. These are the winners from there, and they all earned it:

  1. ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 2080 Super: /u/TheUndisputedTurnip
  2. ASUS Dual GeForce GTX 1660 Super: /u/TheKidOfAnOrospu
  3. ASUS TUF Gaming GTX 1650 Super: /u/Extreme1958

And on the Reddit side, the lucky winners are:

  • ASUS Dual GeForce GTX 1660 Super: /u/Psyc0ziz
  • Steam $50 Gift cards: /u/hans65 and /u/Ralod

Congratulations to all the winners, and thank you to all the participants!

While the community was awesome to work with, we have to give a shout out to the /r/PCGaming mods. This couldn’t have worked so well without their time, help, and input. Thank you all so much!

This isn't a complaint or anything as the description for the gleam giveaway clearly states you were selecting the top builds and it wasn't a random draw but what did the number of entries when completing the build represent?

Example of what I mean here.

In a random draw I would assume that increasing that number, increases your chances of getting selected but I'm not sure how that works in a selected draw. As I say, it's more just a curiosity and not a complaint.

Fair question.

We were using Gleam because it is easy to use and secure. However, the platform has limitations in that you can only set up a giveaway in that gamified, entry-based format. We tried to make it clear that the entry count itself didn't matter, but we fully understood how that could be confusing.

Ah, fair enough. Well thanks for doing the giveaway.
