Live Rounds and Heroes of Newerth Giveaway!
With the exciting new launch of Live Rounds, we at Overwolf, Rounds, and Heroes of Newerth are bringing you a super sweet giveaway. If you play Heroes of Newerth with a party where everyone is using Live Rounds, you will all receive a 1 time, per account code that will unlock the full fan favorite Black Legion avatar set, valued at $50 USD, which includes:
- Quintan the Black Legionnaire (Ultimate Avatar)
- Unum the Black Legion Martyr
- Dyad the Black Legion Smith
- Troika the Black Legion Engineer
- Tetra the Black Legion Scout
If you already have the Black Legion set unlocked on your account, you can swap it for something else, just contact us at email@example.com.
Holy %&*, how do I get this?
Easy. Just follow the simple instructions here and get your loot!
- Install and register for Overwolf.
- Install the Live Rounds app located in the Appstore.
- Play Heroes of Newerth with Live Rounds running.
- Have your entire party in your Live Rounds video chat room.
Once you have a full room, a pop-up will show for all the people in the room with their own personal code to unlock the full Black Legion set. Some restrictions:
- This giveaway is for NA/EU Only – The codes will not work if you’re located elsewhere sorry!
- 1 code per account
Boy this giveaway was fast. You all overwhelmed us and really came out for that gold!
Unfortunately, we have to close the giveaway earlier than mentioned as the 100,000 keys we were given are already in your hands. We’re very sorry about having to close the World of Tanks 1000 gold giveaway early. In our next giveaway, we will make sure that both the number of keys available as well as other restrictions are properly reflected.
Thank you everyone who participated and downloaded Overwolf. We hope you enjoy both the gold and using Overwolf in your game.
See you in game!

Are you ready for more Guild Wars 2?
Last month, we partnered with ArenaNet to see who could develop the best app for World vs. World in the Overwolf WvW App Challenge. Some awesome apps were created by you all, and you can now download them from the Appstore!
After our awesome partnership on the Guild Wars 2 WvW App Challenge, we’re at it again with Guild Wars 2 and give you two new contests taking place during the Guild Wars 2 WvW Fall Tournament of 2014!
Overwolf WvW Streaming Contest
Here, you will be challenged to get the most number of concurrent viewers on your Twitch channel during the contest. The top winner will win some SteelSeries peripherals and a bounty of 8000 Guild Wars 2 Gems! By entering the contest and streaming using the Overwolf app, your entry will be displayed on the Overwolf leaderboards.
Check the Overwolf WvW Streaming Contest page and get the full scoop and how to enter!
Overwolf WvW War Reporter Contest
Our second contest is one where you are challenged to create a “War Report” video that discusses (or showcases) the week’s events (or slaughter) in the WvW Fall Tournament! Use the Overwolf Video recorder to share your video on YouTube to enter the contest. Each week, a winner will be selected to win 5000 gems. All entries will be judged by the Guild wars 2 Community Team.
Check the Overwolf WvW War Reporter Contest page for more info and how to enter!
Aloha dear friends!
I’ve chosen to greet you in Hawaiian because the air conditioning in my work area decided to take a nice long break and I’m now the prisoner of heat and despair. So in order to escape my prison, I’m imagining a nice tropical island with refreshing, ice-cold drinks… Ahhhh…
Enough with random ramblings and on with what’s new in this version: Continue
The gates are soon to be unlocked, a challenge awaits those who dare!
So gather your fellow coders and Guild Wars 2 enthusiast buddies, and hammer away at the best WvW app you can make. The app doesn’t have to be TeamSpeak related, but must be useful to WvW players. The Guild Wars 2 WvW challenge is judged by the ArenaNet Community Team and has its own, overly-awesome, prizes:
- 2,000$ Cash prize
- SteelSeries GW2 Sensei Mouse
- SteelSeries GW2 Flux Headset
- SteelSeries GW2 QcK Mousepad (design may vary)
- GW2 Collector’s Edition
- 2000 Gems, straight from the Bloodcliff Quarry
The Mist Wars are calling. Are you up to the challenge?
