This Guy Is Hell-Bent On Getting A DotA 2 Beta Key

Valve opened a photo-submission contest offering beta keys for DotA 2 that asked fans to show just how much they want one. The contest guidelines included the requirement that images be larger than 600 by 400 pixels. Think a billboard will do?

Steven Addison talked a rep for US media company Clear Channel, owner of this digital billboard in his neighbourhood, into displaying this image for a brief time for free. There are many creative and, well, uncomfortable submissions in the official forum thread. If any of these could get someone a key, Addison's should do it.

    Networking FTW!

      I see that and think Networking ftl : /
      Fairness ftw!

    If this guy doesn't get a beta key I'll be very disappointed in Valve

      Haha me too


      Thats what I thought. It'd be so much easier.

    Although i would scream photoshop as well, but the actual cost of "renting" a billboard is not that high, moreover its a one shot like this, still in the hundreds though

      If you read the blurb, he talk a rep into doing it for free. It is a digital board and it was "displaying this image for a brief time for free."

      Sounds like he just got hold of a fellow gamer who managed to slip it through
