This week marks our two year anniversary!  Our official launch date was on 4/28/2013, but FP was in the works all of April.

We couldn't have made it this far without each and every one of you.  Thanks to our awesome staff volunteering their time to help keep our servers clean and drama free.  Thanks to our members and senior members who contribute to the direction FirePowered grows.  And thanks to all the regulars who keep our servers a challenging place to frag.

A special thanks to our donors who contributed more in the last year than it takes to run all our servers and software!  Since we have some extra money kicking around (and 100% of donations go back into FP, not our wallets), we're giving a bunch of prizes away to celebrate this week.  Prizes will be distributed during events, raffles, and competitions.
 
Mega Raffle
Win Grand Theft Auto V, a $50 Amazon gift card, or one of many TF2 prizes just by visiting the link above while logged into the forums.  You earn an extra ticket for each day you visit the page, for every 50 loyalty points you earn during the week, or for any special claim codes given out by admins.  You can enter your earned tickets into any of four raffles.

Each day there is a new raffle link and password posted at the bottom of the page as well, available to anyone (logged in or not). Check in every day to make sure you don't miss out!

All raffles are free to enter, so what are you waiting for?  Win some free stuff!
 
You can find the link to this page under "Tools" on the navbar.
 
Event Schedule
The below schedule is subject to change.  We may add events if more admins are available, and we may have spur-of-the-moment events at any time.  The public calendar is available on our Steam group page.

So excited! I don't think I'll be able to participate in any of the gaming events, but those raffles sound so awesome. Massive thanks to all you administration people. You guys are the best.

These raffles are the sweetest things I've seen in my life (might be because I happen to have about $50 worth of stuff I wanna buy on Amazon, but you know). Thanks so much to everyone who's helping put this celebration together! :phappy:

I'm so hyped to be never lucky!

 

I really think that this system will help keep wanderers from stealing top prizes. ppleased.gif

 

 

EDIT: What is the "Daily Raffle?" Sorry if it's in the original post, I'm read bad. What kinds of prizes?

For whatever reason, I'm not getting the new entry ticket for logging in and visiting the page on subsequent days.

This is making me sad...

I'm stuck at 7 entries and everyone is passing me :(

Will the amazon voucher work on UK stores? In the very unlikely event I win.

 

And good luck to all in the raffles!

I see that you have 7 entries from visiting (5 first day, 2 from repeat visits).  Looks fine to me!

If you win and the gift card doesn't work in the UK, we can figure something else out. :)

Yeah same here, if there was anything that I would like to win it would be by FAR the amazon gift card, and I too won stuff from the scrap.tf raffle lol. I suck at winning raffles so winning 6 items was kewl

All prizes have been delivered!  Congrats to everyone who won, and thanks to all those who participated.

After we hand out keys to the L4D2 winners, we'll have a thank-you raffle available to anyone (with a forum account) who attended an event.  6 taunts, 8 strange parts, probably some keys and a few other goodies.  Keep your eyes peeled for that!
