Contest For Server Hosts (And Their Communities)
[Image: CTP-Logo.png]

June's prizes are $75 USD for the Player Prizes and $200 USD for the Server Prize (they will be sent via PayPal).

There have been no winners for the past year due to low participation.  The big prizes aim to change that.


What is Capture The Prize?

Capture The Prize is a FREE to join and FREE to win monthly contest where players who play on any servers can win prizes just for playing (no skill required).  Server hosts can also win a prize by referring the most active players.  Servers also benefit from increased player traffic as well as rewarding your existing player base with the chance to win prizes.  40+ multiplayer games and all mods are supported (Garrys Mod, Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike GO, DayZ, Minecraft, Starbound, etc.).  Game Servers do not need to install any plugins.  We just need your Server IP, Port, Query Port (If applicable) and game type.

Unlike similar programs, Capture The Prize does not force your players to sit through an intrusive motd.  In fact there is no motd at all.  Server Operators do have the option of using our Sourcemod Plugin or Garrys Addon - but these only display a text banner advertising your referrer url (every 10 minutes by default).

Player Prize - All players who have played on any tracked server for at least a combined 1 hour will be entered into the drawing and a winner will be chosen at random.  Players gain points every 15 minutes.  You will gain points on any server, but you must first add them to your "Personal Server List" on the website. More points increase your odds of winning; they do not guarantee you to win.

Referral Prize - Server Operators who referred the most active players (a player who activated their account, sent their SteamID and accumulated at least 4 points) will win one of these.  You get a Unique URL and when a user clicks this URL, it takes them to the register form and credits that registration as being referred by you. Even if the user doesnt sign up right away, it creates a cookie that lasts for 1 month so if they sign up later, you still get credited. There are also a large variety of banner images available that you can use on your website (found here)

How it Works

After you register on the site (verify your email and login), you click the "Sign in through the steam" button. Steam will not reveal your username or password to; rather your SteamID will be shared.  This website like many sites on the internet is funded by advertisements; that's how the prizes are funded.

Server Operators (Server Hosts)

All new servers start out as "Standard Servers".  Standard servers net players 1 point every 15 minutes.  Once you have referred 50 active players (over any time period), all your current servers listed will automatically be upgraded to a "Premium Server".  Premium servers net players 2 points every 15 minutes (and as a result will generally get more traffic).  Click here for more information.
