By visiting the MLG Site and completing the free on-line registration form at https://accounts.majorleaguegaming.com/account/new, and participating in any active, available GameBattles ladder on the MLG Site, you will become eligible for this Promotion. Please provide a valid e-mail address, as e-mail will be the primary method of contact. Participants are limited to one entry per person. Valid entries must contain all information requested. Incomplete and/or multiple entries will be disqualified. All entries become the property of MLG and will not be acknowledged or returned. MLG is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, or misdirected entries. MLG, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to disqualify any person who tampers with the entry process or who otherwise violates the spirit or letter of these Official Rules.
This Promotion is void where prohibited. Employees of MLG, Dr Pepper/Seven Up, Inc., their respective advertising agencies, and members of the immediate family of any such persons are not eligible to participate and win.
For each week during the Promotion Period, which begins on Monday 12:00AM EST and ends on Sunday 11:59PM EST, MLG will determine the Participant who accumulates the most ladder match wins across all active and available GameBattles ladders on the MLG Site during such week, and such winning Participant will receive: fifty (50) GameBattles credits (which expire after 3 months of receipt, if unused by Participant), a Dr Pepper Player of the Week profile trophy, and front page promotion in the Dr Pepper Player of the Week box on the MLG Site (total approximate retail value: $37.50).
Participants are limited to one prize during any given twelve week period during the Promotion and will not be selected as the winner more than once during any given twelve week period. For example, if a Participant is selected as the winner of Week 2 of the Promotion Period, then such Participant will not be selected again as the winner until at least Week 14. Participants are limited to one prize per household.
In the event of a tie between the number of wins in a certain week, the user with the fewest losses in that week would be selected as the winner. In the event of a tie between wins & losses, the player with the lowest (closest to 1st) MLG Rank would be selected as the winner.
Prizes are non-transferable and not exchangeable for any other prize. In the case of unavailability of a prize, MLG reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to substitute a prize of equal or greater value. All taxes, gratuities and unspecified expenses are the sole responsibility of winners. Winners assume all liability for use of the prizes.
