List of Global class guides.
The above guides may be obsolete for vanilla SP, but they may still hold true for the 2018 Steam version.

Lol these are so funny! And I am extremely impressed by your enthusiasm and your willingness to participate... that's great spirit guys... and just a quick heads up - I have contacted the T3 marketing representative and they are very much in support of the event... we should hear within the week what prizes they will be willing to extend us!  ;D

PS. I will clarify the rules above to allow multiple entries... so if you have more ideas, keep them coming! The best entries win!

So far this has my vote. Subltle. Very subtle.

Try here.

I had the absolute perfect photobomb picture, but I couldn't take a screenshot in time. I'll find some other things, though.

I wasn't sure what to put as the caption. By this point I needed to crowdsurf to get over them.
