Hey guys and gals,
we've got an exclusive opportunity to go check out GRAW on PC, at the German Games Convention (http://www.gc-germany.de/) in Leipzig!! The GC runs from August 18th to August 22nd.

We'll fly one (1) Ghost Recon fan to Germany, put them up in a hotel, get them into the convention, and then get them into a behind-closed-doors press presentation of GRAW (plus throw in a few goodies).

All you have to do is WRITE A SHORT PIECE ABOUT GHOST RECON. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

An essay, a short poem, a personal recollection... the theme and format are up to YOU (the only constraints are that it must be about Ghost Recon in some way, and it can't be over 500 words in length).

We'll select ONE awesome entry that we think is the cream-of-the-crop to be the winner, and we'll post some of the best entries up as well. So show us what you've got! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Send all entries to: grawcontest@ubisoft.com

All entries must be received by Monday, August 8th, 9:00am (PST) in order to be eligible for the contest.

So this is just for UK/US citizens? And only one has the chance to win? This is ridiculous..... Make whatever you want on GC, I don't care about anymore.. I bet that GR3 will be released next year. So whatever you gonna show on GC, you are just making the com ***** on something which won't be worth it. Just another marketing trick. Fools.....

Agree 100%

I made my submission:

I love Ghost Recon. Ghost Recon was developed by RSE, and published by UBISOFT.
GR, the pinnacle of RSE's tactical shooter games. For all to see, and play. But RSE had a big brother, or an abusive stepdad. (You decide.) UBI made them wear shakles on their success, and put ball and chain on the end users. Starforce had come. Poor RSE, Starforce, thrust upon them, tantamount to murder.

Such a tragedy. My favorite game series, will be ruined by greed, corruption, hate, and prejudice. We, the consumers are not all criminals, and we refuse to be treated as such. It was such a shame, one might have wanted to purchase such a fine looking game.

At some point, someone who is involved in GRAW will read it. And it might make a difference for the better.

"Ghost Recon had good gameplay
enough to compensate for the ugly art
GR2 looked pretty, though it stinked like a fart."

"GRAW may look promissing
before this GR2 looked the same
is the great gameplay still missing?
will we finally have our game?"

"Let us hope UBI will publish
what we missed for quite some time
they should stop releasing rubish, or
i wont waste another dime"

Teh winner has arrived, unfortunetly august weather is too nice for me to waste in germany and so i will have to refuse the price, a shame really http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

Why dosen't UBI ever included its Canadian fans when it has a contest or event show casing a new product?

07-30-2005, 01:25 PM
The point is, that there are great exhibitions in LA, in London, in Tokyo... but I never saw a competition, which allows me to take part in a "closed door" presentation over there.. so why are only US/UK ppl invited? Afraid of the "old world" or what is it? Why the hell are you then presenting it in Germany?? Stay in US or w/e...

(btw I wish you good luck my british mates http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif)

Why go see something that will be (PC- canceled and xbox marketed) at a later date. No Platform support - Genterates NO software company support. When they quit supporting PCs I quit buying their software for my grandsons... Xbox/PS2/game cube...

UBI can "Kiss my backside" before I give them another nickel.

Because Canada does not have enough customers to make it worth their time.

I honestly love that attitude. You will go far with that. Don't let them push you around. Remember, your power lies in your wallet. You are a good person. I herby award you an e-cookie.

That would probably be me.

I think everyone needs to chill here. I am Canadian so obviously I am disappointed to be excluded from this contest. Maybe if Ubisoft opened an office in say, Montreal, they might realize that Canada has customers too. However, everyone has to realize this is only the firstconsumer "look" at GRAW. I am more than sure there will be at least a couple of demonstrations in the continental US, so there will be several chances to preview the game for us lemmings. I mean, look at GR2, how many "shows" they had of it and the PC version of GR2 was awesome.

08-02-2005, 03:59 PM
the PC version of GR2 was awesome.

LOL, good one man...

I sent my email in.

The reason why it's UK and US only is because we have community managers for each country and the CM's for US and UK were able to provide budget to send people to Germany to see the game. The other countries either didn't have enough money or weren't interested. Ideally I'd love to send five people from anywhere in the world to go see if before everyone else, but it'd cost way too much.

This will be the first time GRAW is shown for the PC version so we thought it'd be nice if some people from the community could go along and see the game.

Does Canada have it's own CM?

Bloody money http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif Its a great idea tho, the contest.

What do you think the odds are that next time when UBI holds a gathering to show off a new product (like we saw with GR2) they will consider a Canadian location as well. Vancouver or Toronto perhaps? Both would see large turn outs Im sure.

08-04-2005, 06:11 PM
When your country's population reaches 300 million, I think they might consider it more.

If there was a games show the size of Leipzig in those locations then I'm sure we'd be there showing off something http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Like you all did with friggin Ghost recon 2 you will make it for XBOX and PS but screw us PC Users right?. well i have a note for you who do you friggin think buttered your bread? it wasnt XBOX IT wasnt PS2 it was PC Gamers and after reading these forums you have pretty much pissed all of them off. I really dont know if i would buy it now even if you did make it for PC. My Clan has been playing the GR series since they first started making the game. now we have moved on do to your lack of support for the PC gamer.....

Hey Guys check out America's Army......... Not only is it for pc BUT ITS FREE!!!!!

I think you are a bit behind the times.
A lot has happened since gr2 canceled.

Give your self a catch up.
