Create and Submit an Entry: There are two ways enter for a chance to win a Prize.
ENTRY METHOD ONE:
During Drawing Entry Periods one (1) – four (4), Participant must use his or her Twitch account. Creating a Twitch account is free but is subject to the applicable terms and conditions (https://www.twitch.tv/p/legal/terms-of-service). In order to earn one (1) Entry into the Sweepstakes:
Each Participant may receive one (1) free Entry per Drawing Entry Period, and the Entry will expire upon the end of each Drawing Entry Period. Participant must submit a new Entry per each Drawing Entry Period.
Participants must be present in the Twitch chat during the applicable drawing time in order to win a prize. See the Drawing Times above. If Participant is not present in the Twitch chat during the time of the applicable drawing, he/she will not be eligible to win a prize.
ENTRY METHOD TWO:
Additionally, Sponsor will conduct one (1) drawing for Participants who reply to AMD’s AMD Xbox Game Pass for PC VLAN Party during Drawing Entry Period five (5) (August 26th at 7:52 PM CT to September 20th at 11:59:59 PM CT). One (1) winner will be selected from all Participants who reply to the Blog Post.
For All Entries: Limit one (1) Entry per Participant, per account, per Drawing Entry Period, for a total of five (5) potential sweepstakes Entries. Any attempt by any Participant to submit more than the stated number of Entries by using multiple/different accounts, email addresses, identities, or any other method will void that Participant's Entries and that Participant may be disqualified. Multiple Participants are not permitted to share the same Twitch account. The identity and eligibility of a potential winner will be confirmed using information provided in their Event registration. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, illegible or misdirected Entries, which may be disqualified, or for any error, human, technical or otherwise. Sponsor is not responsible for any loss of internet connection or for any server issues or other electronic connection issues which may cause Participant to be unable to connect to the internet in order to enter the Sweepstakes. Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any Participant it finds to be tampering with the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. In the event of a dispute as to any Entry, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register for Participant’s Twitch account used will be deemed to be the Participant. The authorized account holder is the natural person assigned the email address used to register for the Twitch account, as that is determined by the Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. The potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, illegible or misdirected Entries, which may be disqualified, or for any error, human, technical or otherwise.
Drawing: During each Drawing Time set forth above, Sponsor will randomly select one (1) potential winner per Drawing Entry Period, from all eligible Entries received during the applicable Drawing Entry Period. Non-winning Entries do not roll over to subsequent Drawing Entry Periods. Odds of winning depend upon the number of eligible Entries received.

Prize must be accepted as awarded and may not be transferred, substituted or redeemed for cash or otherwise, except at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater monetary value if the prize, or any component of the prize, cannot be awarded for any reason. Sponsor is responsible only for prize delivery; Sponsor is not responsible for prize utility, quality or otherwise. ARV is as of date of posting of these Official Rules. The difference in value of prize as stated herein and value at time of prize notification, if any, will not be awarded.
Sponsor will notify the potential winner via Twitch private message within one (1) hour following the applicable Drawing Time. Sponsor will also announce the potential winner’s username on both AMD’s Discord channel (https://discord.gg/qb7mHwV) and AMD’s Twitch channel (https://www.twitch.tv/amd). Within five (5) minutes of Sponsor’s notification, the potential winner must acknowledge receipt of such notification by entering a chat message via either AMD’s Discord page or AMD’s Twitch channel. Within twenty-four (24) hours of Sponsor’s notification, the potential winner must supply Sponsor with a valid email address and any requested information for the administration of the Sweepstakes. In addition, a potential winner from outside of the United States may be required to correctly answer a time-limited, skill-testing question in order to receive the prize. The potential winner may be required to sign and return an affidavit of eligibility and release of liability (“Release”), as well as a publicity release, except where prohibited by applicable law, which Sponsor must receive within fourteen (14) days of its provision thereof. Potential winner may be issued an IRS 1099 form. If a potential winner of any prize cannot be contacted, fails to respond to the notification within five (5) minutes, or fails or refuses to fully complete, sign and return the Affidavit, fails to provide any requested information of the Affidavit within the required time period, fails to correctly answer the skill-testing question, or the prize or notification is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits the applicable prize. Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules. If for any reason a potential winner is disqualified, the prize may be awarded to an alternate winner, selected by random drawing from among remaining eligible entries, even if the disqualified potential winner may have been publicly announced. Only up to ten (10) alternate drawings will be held, after which the prize will remain un-awarded. Failure to comply with any term or condition in these Official Rules may result in disqualification at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Potential winner(s) may waive their right to receive a prize, in which case an alternate winner may be selected in the manner described above. The reporting and payment of any taxes on prizes are the sole responsibility of the winner(s). Any applicable forms will be filed with the appropriate taxing authority by the Sponsor. The Prize will be sent to the winner within one week of Sponsor receiving the requested information and document(s). Allow 2-4 weeks for prize delivery.
Except where prohibited by applicable law, participation in the Sweepstakes constitutes each winner’s consent to Sponsor’s and its agents’ use of the winner’s name, username, city, state, province or county, and country, likeness, photograph, statements made by the winner about the Sweepstakes, Sponsor, and/or prize information for promotional purposes in any media without further payment or consideration. All entries become the property of Sponsor, and none will be returned. Sponsor reserves the right to terminate, amend, suspend or modify this Sweepstakes in whole or in part, at any time and without notice or obligation, if in Sponsor’s sole discretion, any factor interferes with its proper conduct as contemplated by these Official Rules. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, if, for any reason, the Sweepstakes is not capable of running as planned, including infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention, fraud, technical failures, or any other causes beyond the control of Sponsor which corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of this Sweepstakes, the Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify any individual who tampers with the entry process. Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision or of any other provision of these Official Rules. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Official Rules shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision. If any provision of the Official Rules is determined to be invalid or otherwise unenforceable, then the Official Rules shall be construed in accordance with their terms as if the invalid or unenforceable provision was not contained therein.
By participating, each Participant agrees to release and hold harmless Sponsor, Twitch Interactive Inc., and each of their subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers, distributors, advertising/promotion agencies, agents and their respective officers, directors and employees (collectively, “Released Parties”) from and against any claim or cause of action, including but not limited to, personal injury, death, or damage to or loss of property, arising out of participation in the sweepstakes or receipt, possession, use or misuse of the prize. The Released Parties shall not be liable to winner or any other person for failure to supply the prize or any part thereof, by reason of any acts of God, any action(s), regulation(s), order(s) or request(s) by any governmental or quasi-governmental entity (whether or not the action(s), regulation(s), order(s) or request(s) prove(s) to be invalid), equipment failure, terrorist acts, earthquake, war, fire, flood, explosion, unusually severe weather, hurricane, embargo, labor dispute or strike (whether legal or illegal), labor or material shortage, transportation interruption of any kind, work slow-down, civil disturbance, insurrection, riot, or any other cause beyond Released Parties’ sole control. The Released Parties are not responsible for: (1) any incorrect or inaccurate information, whether caused by Participant, printing errors, or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes; (2) technical failures of any kind, including, but not limited to malfunctions, interruptions, or disconnections in phone lines or network hardware or software; (3) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the entry process or the Sweepstakes; (4) technical or human error which may occur in the administration of the Sweepstakes or the processing of Entries; or (5) any injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from Participant’s participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt or use or misuse of any prize. If for any reason a Participant’s Entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, Participant’s sole remedy is another Entry in the Sweepstakes provided that if it is not possible to submit another Entry due to discontinuance of the Sweepstakes, or any part of it, for any reason, Sponsor, at its discretion, may elect to hold a random drawing from among all Eligible Entries or, as the case may be, received up to the date of discontinuance for the prize offered herein. No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded. In the event that production, technical, seeding, programming or any other reasons cause more than the stated number of prizes as set forth in these Official Rules to be available and/or claimed Sponsor reserves the right to award only the stated number of prizes by a random drawing among all legitimate, un-awarded, eligible prize claims. IN NO EVENT WILL RELEASED PARTIES BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OR LOSSES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, ARISING OUT OF THE ACCEPTANCE, POSSESSION, USE OR MISUSE OF ANY PRIZE AWARDED IN CONNECTION WITH THE SWEEPSTAKES. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, THE SWEEPSTAKES, ALL PRIZES, AND ALL MATERIALS PROVIDED IN CONNECTION WITH THE SWEEPSTAKES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.
Except where prohibited, Participant agrees that: (1) any and all disputes, claims, and causes of action arising out of or connected with the Sweepstakes, or any prizes awarded, shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the United States District Courts for the Western District of Texas (San Jose Division) or the appropriate Texas State Court located in Travis County, Texas; (2) any and all claims, judgments and awards shall be limited to actual out of pocket costs incurred, including any costs associated with entering the Sweepstakes, but in no event attorneys’ fees; and (3) under no circumstances will Participant be permitted to obtain awards for and Participant hereby waives all rights to claim indirect, punitive, incidental and consequential damages and any other damages, other than for actual out-of-pocket expenses, and any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of each Participant and Sponsor in connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Texas, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the State of Texas, or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Texas. Some jurisdictions do not allow for limitations of certain remedies or damages and so this provision may not apply to you.
