(Oldies But Goodies) Ah well... I lost by a mile, guess I'm gonna have to wait for a family member to kick the bucket and leave me some money, so I upgrade my system to something that will run a game not made in 2012 or earlier. Never won anything before... don't know why I expected anything different. Adios.

I understand you, but you have to keep trying. You have nothing to loose, so do not be upset when you did not win, its just a game.

And this time thanks to Steve it is in really interesting way :)

So can anyone answer the question of, how long till the losers get their code for Rainbow Six and does anyone know what edition of Rainbow Six Siege their giving away? I see they have like a Starter Edition, Standard Edition, Year 2 Pass, Year 2 Gold Edition and a Complete Edition.

One would assume the base game, and no idea on the time frame, I tend to leave things like this as I'm sure people are busy, they'll get round to it when they can.

well yea your gpu isn't that bad(atleast not as bad as mine) like come on..2014 gpu and cant really play games from 2012 without issues.. my cpu can somewhat do it so my main problem is the gpu and lack of ram(plus the mobo limitations) so I dont think its really worth doing much to upgrade on that platform
