Here are the winners and honorable mentions in this contest.
As stated in the rules, we picked 7 winners in this contest, then slotted them into a random 1-7 order. This only matters since the prizes are 1 BlizzCon ticket and 6 WWI Cards. Congrats to all of the winners. Lyquid had first choice, but couldn’t make it to Blizzcon, so the ticket fell to Jodaus. Click through to view all the winners and honorable mentions.

It’s not clear if the Fallen were killed there, or photoshopped in. If they were killed on the spot, then bonus points galore! This shot also gave us an idea for a fun future contest… stay tuned.

Leah’s expression here, and her role in the new game, perfectly matched the tone of the issue. And yes, it was probably inevitable that we have two winners who made reference to the (art) controversy that will not die. Try though we did to avoid it.
Picking 7 winners was tough. We got 3 or 4 that we agreed on, and then had to debate and horse trade to pick the remaining lucky 7. Here are some others that the judges enjoyed, in no particular order.
