Now that we've made contact with the winners and sent out the prizes, it's time for a formal announcement of the journal contest winners!
Shiiben picked out ArmA II: Combined Operations and Portal 2.
Razek19 went with Red Orchestra 2 and FarCry 2. We decided to award an extra game as he tied with first place.
And lastly, Spectre received a copy of Garry's Mod.
Great job everyone, and excellent stories! We'll be holding more contests in the future, so make sure to subscribe to our RSS feed, follow us on Twitter, and like the DayZ HQ page on Facebook!
This site has been in the works for the past two months. Our goal has been to develop new and unique ways to share user-submitted content within a community of people who enjoy DayZ.
We've shown this in our map, where we opted to go for a user-friendly way of displaying building types and landmarks rather than places to find loot. We believe the fun in the game is the adventure, and analyzing the game and turning it into a loot-finding simulator flies in the face of that. Now we're trying do the same thing for the new site.
Stories, videos, and discussion are what make the community unique. We intend to promote that. Thanks for checking DayZ HQ out and please keep in touch!
Just a quick service note to let you know that you now have the option to use Steam's login system to authenticate your account, in addition to Twitter and Facebook.
Current users may also attach their Steam ID to their accounts via the user control panel. This serves no purpose currently, but we have some neat ideas for the future that we’ll outline once they've been fleshed out on our end.
We hope the additional methods for registering will make your DayZ HQ experience better! If you have yet to register, come right this way.
Thanks for checking DayZ HQ out — expect much more to come! We're currently developing new and innovative features for the site.
Hello and welcome to DayZ HQ!
Our goal is to be the most efficient, feature-driven, content-filled, and visually appealing DayZ fan site on the World Wide Web and collective consciousness of the game's burgeoning community. With great effort, and help from the users, we can and will aggregate everything from the most indespensible game mechanic down to the most meager fun fact.
We are glad you've come along for the ride.
