So ASUS Australia ran a '12 days of Christmas competition' over Christmas where each day over the period they were giving away goods. Ranged from promo stuff like hoodies, up to expensive computer gear, like a 3070. All you had to do was like this and that, comment answering a question. As per their T&C's, winners picked on most creative answer.
The lesser prizes, like backpacks and shirts had multiple winners declared quickly. Anything of value, like the 3070 had not had any winners revealed well after 11/1/21.
I didn't enter, as I hate being free advertising for something I won't win, but kept a close eye on it curious to see what answer would win a 3070. Only 1x winner for that prize.
The winner of the 3070 was just announced recently and alarm bells started going off as soon as I saw the winning answer, keep in mind as picked by ASUS judging panel, the most creative answer; 'Cyber punk all the way'.
I viewed the winner's instagram profile and more alarm bells started ringing when they are only following 22 accounts, which are all brands, like local PC parts dealers and stuff.

So either the ASUS judging panel has rocks for brains and thinks that is the most creative response, or there is foul play in their marketing team, either way I'm not considering ASUS for any future purchases.
Most of the other big ticket items still don't have a winner announced. Maybe they promised to give after stuff they couldn't' actually get.
Anyway, I'm glad I didn't enter as it turned out to be a shitshow of a 'competition'.
