Nice idea. But, as usual, any country that's not in North America gets shafted.

Few years ago I saw those female t-shirts with white hands right on boobs. I immediately thought of Saruman (second though was what a nerd should I be to think of it). I wonder if those t-shirts are still going, would be fitting for this contest, probably.

You know I think they are jumping on something that has been happening (at least here in the UK) since the Trilogy was in theaters. The white Hand pops up on a regular basis here in Glastonbury...all around Somerset really.

As Lenn said, it is only in the 50 US states. Useless contest for an international company.

@Yarg2011 At least Codemasters had the occasional contest for us Eurotrash.

@Lenn I really don't understand how a company in today's international market can be so stupid about contests. Turbine always has these great contests but no one outside of the company's country can get a prize.

@Yarg2011

Now add that Turbine instead of running themselves game servers in Europe transferred them to US , increasing latency for European and not only players , making PvPM and raiding very uncomfortable /impossible and worsening play comfort for others ,you can definately say who they think as priority players.

Really I am fed up with this kind of attitude showed to me. I am done.

@Lenn

To be fair, it happens both ways. I don't know how many Doctor Who related contests I've wanted to enter, but the BBC has restrictions for US citizens, even though they have a channel here in the US.

@Yarg2011 It happens all the time with companies outside the US. Such as Doctor Who with their contest, it was only in Europe and not in the US. Turbine maybe dealing with Lotro internationally but they are still a US based company so those outside will have issues with any type of contest

There are probably some stupid laws about international contests, wish I could find the article that talked about it.

Oh dear, I don't think the idea in the right picture was thought through well enough...

"Players can download the white hand template from the contest website"

Can players not find a template at the end of their own arms?
