Get Your Free Arcane Helmet and Arcane Horns with Alienware!

so I got to register twice using different emails on the day it came out and no code was given, and now I registered a new one but no code was given. It displayed that there was supposed to be a code but it was empty.
loves!
bit of a shambles
Let's use this Thread I created to try to achieve level 5 on the alienware page...

https://eu.alienwarearena.com/ucf/show/2122518/boards/awa-on-topic/ForumPost/the-journey-to-get-poes-horns-1

I'll upvote all the comments in the post, and you can do the same in order to help other people get that level 5
It will not even be enuff to get to 125 points in 4 days...

This promotion is a big bait.

Get your helmet and delete your acc after.
And share how GGG handled this promotion.
In the future i will spent a lot less on GGG then i was used to. I hope many will follow
This promotion is just a shame...

How is there a limited quantity of a friggin GAME ITEM?!

That doesn't make any sense.

Wish I would've missed this post :(


Being a freebie, if there weren't a limiting factor then the future addition to the MTX store would yield close to zero sales since most would likely have it from the promotion.

Yes, it sucks, but it's sadly how these things work when you have a freebie that's slated to enter paid acquisition after the promotion period ends.

They didn't have to do this with Twitch Prime because Amazon Prime's cost of entry is the limiting factor ($120 US/year). I just wish Alienware Arena's account management wasn't so bloody janky.

Also, just so people understand my position here - I'm not defending the very bait and switch tactic that was used here. It's rotten to the core on all sides. The only upside to this for me (as I obviously won't get the helm or horns thanks to the lack of available codes) is that I used a fake name when I made my account. There isn't a chance in hell I'm giving Dell my real information.

Edit: There is at least one promotion that comes to mind that was actually worse than this one. It's the one Blizzard Entertainment came up with a year and a half ago. They held a contest where you had to take a picture of you playing Diablo 3 on the Switch to win a Switch. Problem is, if you don't own a Switch, how to do so if you also don't know anyone that does? People ended up resorting to drawing a picture of them playing on a Switch using stock screenshots. It was probably the most backasswards promotion idea I've ever seen.

So if nothing else, you can rest assured that GGG isn't the only one to come up with craptacular promotions. ;)

Reminder that the Arcane Helmet, the Day 4 reward, is now available. I just redeemed mine. There may be a limited amount of codes for this one as well.

People who missed out on the horns may even be able to get this reward, if they logged in each day.
Redeemed the code for the helmet, but no helmet.

Edit: Support fixed it super fast.

Did you actually redeem it, or simply check the key?

When it came to the horns, I made the mistake of just doing the first part which verifies the key, but didn't do the second part where you have to click an additional confirmation to redeem it. I got locked out of the key and had to contact Support.

But yeah, the helmet was instant for me.

I click redeem, but what do you think? Right! No helmet!
