This Week in Raptr: TERA Week, Borderlands 2 Haiku Contest, Community Highlights

Welcome to This Week in Raptr, your weekly summary of upcoming community events and top discussions happening on Raptr.com!

TERA Week*

This Tuesday, Raptr Rewards will give away a double dose of TERA love. Not only will there be 50% off TERA discounts for new users, but veteran players can also get their hands on the reviously unreleased Apple Hat!

Tune in next week for a Raptr Q&A with TERA developers — we’ll give away Night Mare mounts (a $25 value!) to those who post the best questions (as determined by Raptr)!

And get into the Halloween spirit early with our TERA Costume Contest — we’re looking for users to don their best Halloween outfits and take a screenshot using the Raptr Desktop App. The best screenshot will be the subject of an upcoming Caption Contest, so dress accordingly!

*TERA Week is technically more like three weeks.

Raptr wants YOU to write Dishonored and Borderlands 2 reviews

Everybody’s got a voice — Raptr wants to hear yours! We are looking for reviews of both Dishonored and Borderlands 2. Loved it? Hated it? It doesn’t matter; share your thoughts and let the world know what you think.

The best reviews will be featured in an upcoming entry of This Week in Raptr!

Borderlands 2 Haiku Contest

The world of Borderlands 2 is full of life, but screenshots of Pandora tend to be a little quiet. That’s where you come in — we are looking for the best caption for the above image from now until October 24. There’s a catch though — we need it in the form of a haiku. Brush up on your syllable structure, and wax poetic for a chance at nabbing some loot of your own.

The best poet laureate will win a Borderlands 2 Season Pass!

Raptr Rewards: Battlestar Galactica Online

If interstellar warfare is your thing, we are also giving away a Battlestar Galactica Online Bundle this Thursday. It doesn’t matter if you’re a human or Cylon; anybody with a high enough rank can claim this bundle consisting of Tylium, Titanium, and a temporary XP booster.
