    To help celebrate this success after five years, Turbine has teamed up with Massively to offer special prizes for three lucky winners: 5,000 Turbine Points, 10,000 Turbine Points, and a Lifetime account!


  2. Shutz Says:

    Lifetime accounts? They can buy them but we can’t?

      More than likely Turbine is giving them lifetime account codes (and all other prizes). These sites probably haven’t purchased anything.

        They should give CSTM lifetime account codes they can give away to “contributors whose usernames start with V” . . . er, podcast listeners.


        • Gliredhel Says:

          Actually, all kidding aside, they absolutely should be giving such things to a website with the LOTRO traffic that CSTM sees. Just because we’re already their children doesn’t mean that Turbine can’t send us some candy, too.


    • Tanner Says:

      As Goldenstar wrote, these are prizes supplied by Turbine in a deal with those sites. Turbine have been giving away lifetime VIP status as grand prize in contests and giveaways before, it’s all marketing ;)

    thank you very much :)


  4. Erulm Says:

    Thank you very much for posting this. I’ve been kicking myself for not buying a Lifetime account when they were last available and hopefully I can finally win one. Very helpful to have this all compiled into a single list.

    Thanks for posting these! If I don’t win anything, maybe at least another CSTM reader will. :D


  6. Ereg Says:

    Can anyone explain to me what this means exactly?

    “Eligibility. The contest is internationally open to legal residents who are 18 years of age or older.”

    So is it open only to US residents, or is it international?
