(2nd Annual) Badass TF2 Pumpkin Contest Winners – And an announcement about NewbsMas

Posted on: November 5th, 2009 by octo dhd

As promised I’m posting the results of the 2nd Annual TF2 Newbs Pumpkin Carving Contest – This year we had 7 entries which is down from last year, but the entries were VERY good. I spent a long time evaluating the Pumpkins trying to decide who should win. I decided that in order to reward those who put the time and the dedication into making a pumpkin and submitting them that I would expand the prizes! So instead of one copy of l4d2 I gave away 3 copies! I had Jib send one to each of the three ‘winning’ pumpkins. The final odds of winning a grand prize in this contest ended up being a 3/7 which means that 42% of the entries won a copy of l4d2! You just can’t beat TF2Newbs odds.

A big thank you goes out to Control Point for featuring our little contest on their podcast, I think its really kicked things up a notch – Thanks again!

All people who participated won 1 years worth of reserve on the Newbs servers, a forum honorz (will be added tomorrow hopefully), and 1 year of !hatme access (enables you to wear any classes hat). If you participated and want the Newbs server rewards contact me on steam, most of the participants I couldn’t find in the stats db under their entry name so I don’t know their steamid :) I can be reached @

I would like to take this chance to announce the next Newbs Contest… (drum roll) The next contest is the – Newbs Team Fortess 2 Christmas and other Winter Celebrations Contest. All entries will be TF2 and winter solstice themed. Entries can be winter decorations, confections, other food stuffs, songs, snow sculptures, or any other creative work. I will be announcing further details very shortly. If you want to keep track of the latest Christmas contest news please join I’m not certain on the prizes yet (looking for some sponsors) but I promise that it will be worth your time :)

And we have some TF2 Pumpkin Carving Contest Winners!

Posted on: November 3rd, 2008 by Newbs Staff


So its November 3rd now, and after a little bit of fumbling around, I managed to get all the pictures of the pumpkin contest (also known as Jibs Contest Of Noiice) sent over to TheJib so he could judge.  As some of you may know we were offering up a single prize of a Steam Gift of Left 4 Dead to be awarded by Jib.  In order to qualify you had to submit a pumpkin, the more badass the better.  The REAL prize though was the never ending fame and glory of knowing that you participated, and that the world looked on in awe at how cool your tf2 pumpkin turned out. 

 And… The winners are:

1st prize: Left 4 Dead, 1 year reserved slot, trophy honorz – Crab Spy (in cross hairs)
`– NFreak

2nd prize: 15 steam bucks, 1 year reserved slot, trophy honorz – Painted Engy/Sentry Gun
`– Dingo (And her canadian bf)

Runner up: Honorz Icon, 1 year reserved slot:
Spy silouette *Nice work, you pulled this off well
`– Doomheit

Sticky bomb *Very original. Although not ‘carved’ you had to carve out the spikes to put them on there.
`– Koans (you can no longer say you never win anything)

Pyro face etched *quality. Very clean
`– Octo (hah, I managed to place!)

TF2 graffiti carving. *graffiti for the win. badass
`– Zepith

All who participated:
3 month reserved slot / honorz icon.

All in all, we had 21 entries, 20 were TF2 related (1 was portal related).
