Hey guys,

Just heard about this wicked promo that's happening around the launch of
Halo Wars. You can win 5 copies of Halo Wars for your and your mates!

I've inserted the email I received below and the link to their Facebook
group which has all the info:

http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/group.php?gid=65266313000&ref=ts

"Ladies and Gents,

NOTE: A break down of what?s in this email is available on the Facebook
group for this promotion.

Halo Wars is almost here and to celebrate we're giving you and your friends
the chance to take home 5, yes I said 5 copies of the brilliant, universe
expanding RTS that is Halo Wars only on the Xbox 360. Now you'll be able to
duke it out over Xbox LIVE with all your mates. How? Simple: Build your own
army. OK, so not literally. Here?s how it works:

We've set up a Facebook "hub" for this promotion. It's a group titled
appropriately "Halo Wars: Build Your Own Army" and it can be found here:
http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/group.php?gid=65266313000&ref=ts. You"ll
all need to join this group. It explains everything and you?ll need it
during the campaign.

The second part is to start building your "army" which means creating a
Facebook group of your own and getting at least 5 friends to join your group
(army). You need to come up with a name for your army and title the group:
"Halo Wars: INSERT ARMY NAME". The picture should be your army's logo, you
can create your own and scan it in or simply get it from another source.
You'll need to send the link to your group to: streetteams@xbox.com.au

Now here comes the fun part. Every day starting from 2nd March we'll post a
battle scenario on the "hub" Facebook group. These battle scenarios will be
taken from famous battles throughout history and ?Haloised?. Within these
battle scenarios/stories we'll put clues in regards to which battle each
refers. Look at numbers of troops, names, dates and the occurrences of the
battle itself to try and figure out which battle it is. Once you and your
friends have figured it out all you need to do is send the answer to

streetteams@xbox.com.au and the scores of each team will be posted on our
"hub" Facebook group. Each question is worth 100pts.

Now, what happens if you get one wrong? Is there a way to catch up? Yep! On
the weekends so that?s the 7th, 8th and 14th,15th we're going to be playing
"capture the territory". You'll need to take to the streets for this one. To
capture a territory you'll need to call a special 1800 number (yet to be
announced) on any payphone. You'll hear in the voice you've come to know and
love from the Halo franchise say "territory captured" then a beep to leave a
message. Leave the name of your army in the message and the number of the
telephone box you're calling from (these are posted on the backboards of all
payphones). Each payphone you hit is worth 10pts so if you?re not a history
buff there's plenty of time to catch up! Then simply take a picture of the
payphone and put it up on your Facebook group at the end of the day!
Territory captured!!!

The winning team will receive the 5 copies of this wicked new title. They'll
be posted to the creator of the winning army's Facebook group and he/she can
distribute. It's as easy as that guys!

NOTE: You can earn more points during the week by doing the following:

1. Changing your Facebook and/or Myspace picture to a Halo Wars picture
5pts each

2. Posting about the tournament on forums
5pts each post.

You'll need to take screen grabs and send them to streetteams@xbox.com.au to
have the points added."

Cheers,
TheAnswer

Well the Mythic Map pack is from the collectors editions only, not the regular editions

ok im in the group, what do we do now, there is a challenge that needs to be finished by 7pm tonight. any suggestions? here is the clue:


Battle ONE:

Sergeant Peterson turned to Private Holmes and put his arm on his shoulder in a way that suggests he’s more of a mentor then a friend. It’s a cold winner day. The planet is usually cold but the snow and winds of this time of year and especially today sting against the cheeks of Private Holmes. Peterson leans over and explains to him as a grandfather would explain to a grandson the history of the planet they’re overlooking ‘son, great battles have been fought here. Planet Dunver is part of our history. It’s part of what makes us men, of our honour. I’ve seen combat here son, I’ve fought on this very ground. You’re lucky private to be stationed here, you’ll likely not experience any short of combat. A lot of men died defending this ice-rock’. Holmes looks at his commanding officer ‘Why sir?, Why won’t I see combat?’. Peterson folds his arms behind his back, surveying the ice covered land ‘Because they don’t want it son. There’s not strategic reason those alien sons of bitches will want to come back to this piece of ice. It only matters to us in heart. In history. Those alien scum. They don’t see honour…they don’t feel the symbolic importance of this place…good thing too’

5 million kilometres from the surface of Planet Dunver aboard a Covenant Master Ship Elite Supreme Commander Falken has a commanding presence over a room full of other Elite warriors. In the centre of the room a blue hologram depicting Planet Dunver can be seen. Falken and the elite commanders are discussing potential plans of invasion. Falken lectures as he paces around the command chamber ‘the Planet of Dunver is an essential piece of human history, something my predecessor was unable to see. Humans are, as we’ve learned and wittnessed a pathetic race of withering organs encased in soft, crushable flesh. They’re as weak in morale as they are on the battlefield and will try and defend this useless hunk of ice. They will defend it at all costs. Their commanders know as I do that human morale is fragile, their beliefs often irrelevant to the task at hand. When broken, the ripple effect of their shattered morale can be felt for miles. This planet is our key to bleed the humans white. They’ll try and protect it...they’ll try and save it. I can see it. They’ll pump resources into its defence and it’s here that we’ll hit the hardest. Once we’ve defeated them here, they’ll have nothing left to defend the surrounding planets. We’ll not only defeat the humans here on Dunver. We will annihilate them!

Still looking for people to join if you are interested in trying to win a copy of Halo Wars. So far we are coming 3rd so need to get some more people with knowledge of history in particular battles to help us climb the ladder.
