Hey folks,

 

So Rai has opened her stash of cat nip codes and there are just too many.  (It may have something to do with those wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube man--they look suspicious!)  As such, she has asked me to give some of these things away--mostly tanks and premium time.  

 

So now I have to figure out how, and I am no Paulie P. you see.  I do have a couple ideas:  a random draw of Pascucci medal (or better) winners within a given time period; a dual platoon highest damage or xp event in a given tank; a moves like jagger contest, and to be fair probably an arty shotgun contest or something.  Also considering perhaps something to do with forum wn8 contest, a create your own crew bio contest, or a thread of the week contest (not sure how I would judge that).

 

But I thought for the first contest I would ask the community what you want in forum based contests--to tap your creative minds.  So starting now, give me your ideas for contests we can run.  It has to be something involving posting on the forum and preferable something in game and posting it on the forum.  Most important, it has to be fun for the participants--challenging but not requiring super skill or incredible effort.  Random draw events are ok, but so are skilled based events.  There may also be just random pop-up quick contests.    

 

The rewards for the Contest Ideas Contest:

1st Place:    Choice of either the T-32 Proto, *or* Yazi, *or* Skorpion G, *or* the Brett Parson's Tanks;

2nd Place:   Choice of either the Vindicator, *or* Bear, *or* Warlord Panther;

3rd Place:    Wojtek (comes with crew but I will need to contact RaiBOT01 for delivery)

 

(Also those Brett Parson Tanks come with crew but I will need to contact RaiBOT01 for delivery)

 

Contest Ideas Contest Winners!

 

First Place: 

Youngestbike679 (for the Some of the Kind entry)

 

Second Place:  Tie!

--FlexedCornet40--Jump and survive

--ATHFjman18--M3 Lee combined damage

--DiluteBump4--fastest kill

--Slimey Caveman--creative ambush

 

Third Place:

CamaroGuy96--tankies

vampyrii--sequenced/various achievos (really don't know how to give this a short description) 

 

Lots of good entries here.  Thank you everyone for the entries.  Winners PM me your tank choice from the contest list.  Some of these I hope Raibot might consider (too complex for me to administer) and some I will definitely use!

 

One Random entry will receive 30 days of premium time.

 

Congratulations SlickFawn149411.  You win 30 days premium!

 

Contest ends February 28, 2019, 5pm, Central US time (Chicago time) 

 

If you place higher but want a lower prize, I can accommodate that.  Also, these are codes and work as codes work (may be limited as with codes for streamers to only one per individual, etc.)

 

I am the final arbiter of the places and please don't submit no effort or inappropriate stuff or copy my ideas (though a unique variation would be allowed) because I won't count it for the random draw--no time for that jibba jabber!

 

Also, answer the poll and you will be entered into a seperate random draw for 30 days or premium time.  Poll closes February 28th, 5pm, Central US, Chicago time as well.  (All contests will be in Chicago time btw, because as my clan mates know I am not an international man of time!)  I'll screenshot the answers and that will be the official entries.  

 

Congrats KilroyWasHere17!  You have won 30 days premium time!

 

If you have any questions post them here as well!

 

Have fun!

 

Special note:

Something in game please Mr shill. Maybe giving out a free black tank as one of the rewards for a winner.

Post your highest direct (or combined) damage game in your M3 Lee. 

 

PS- I only say this, because the M3 Lee was the most popular tank during console’s first year! Perfect tie in for a year five contest. 

 

That info-graphic brings back some memories! :teethhappy:

Create an instructional poster for new players.

Must be a single unedited screen capture from WOT Console.

Embedding image in frame OK but not required.

Post to forum should include an appropriate title/tag line.

 

Could be an example of what to do, what not to do or just inspirational.

Judging based on quality of image, relevance of title/tag line and importance/uniqueness of point being made.  

Funny gets a bonus!

 

Something along lines of:

400px-Training_affirmation_poster%2C_USA

 

Question for Gallant Prime - multiple entries to your contest allowed?

(Answer was up to two, preferably in same post )

 

So now for something completely different

Working title  "Some of a Kind"

Based on Damage, Assisted Damage and Bounced scores

Goal is to have the highest number of the same digits.

Four nines beats four eights.

Five of a kind beats four of a kind.

Zeros don't count.

Digits just have to be part of the score.

So 1024 Damage, 715 Assisted, 114 Bounced gives us "4 Ones" 

Proof can either be a screen grab of personal summary page from end of game or screen grab while actually playing - (Damage, Assisted and Bounced are shown during game play)  

Don't want someone to turtle half way though match because they have 666, 666 and 666!

Cheers,

YB

I chose “Other” for Contest parameters..... Name a Mercenary Crew AND their animal sidekick that’s not RaiBOT01 and Biggs.  One winner will be RaiBOT01’s choice, Prime will pick his/her 10 favorites and pick winners via poll, and a handful of other entrants will get randomly chosen for lesser prizes.

Entries should include Crew name with a one or two sentence description and the species, name, and any special abilities of the animal companion. For example:

Crew: Mickey Knives. He’s a pickpocket turned Mercenary who uses big tanks for big heists.

Sidekick: Dingo the Wallaby.  He’s cute and cuddly, but his keen hearing helps to keep the Crew alert to any unseen dangers.

Maybe we can get another Mercenary Crew(with animal) out of it! That reminds me..... we still haven’t seen the results of that Become a Merc Contest...

Alright so here's my pitch....

Create a community awards contest. Like a superlatives or best of wot type deal. It'll have different categories for awards, sort of like the Oscars or the Grammies of tanks.

We shall call these awards the TANKIES!

 

So without further ado I present:

 

Posted Image

 

Tankers will submit game clips to enter the various categories. The WG staffers can then either select the winners directly; or they could nominate finalists and put them up for vote by the community. We will have categories that take skill, categories that take luck, and categories that are just ridiculous and fun!

 

Proposed awards include:

-Best tanker in a lead role- Awarded for the best kill streak game (creativity/difficultly counts, not just total kill count)

-Best tanker in a supporting role- Awarded for the best game without a kill

-Best stunt - Awarded for the most wicked stunt performed in a tank (and survived)

-Best dance number- Awarded for the best use of maneuvering to survive an encounter/get a kill

-The Lucky Dog Tanky- Awarded for the best display of good luck

-The Bareknuckle Brawler Tanky- Awarded for the best physical kill (ramming/dropping/pushing)

-The Giant Slayer Tanky- Awarded for the best kill of a heavy tank by a light

-The Derpy McDerpface Tanky- Awarded for the most satisfying single use of a derp gun

-The Stuglife Tanky- Awarded for the best display of being a boss in a StuG.

(and we can always come up with more)

 

There's two ways this contest can occur. Either throw all the categories out there and once, and have an awards stream to name all the winners. OR(and this is my preference) this could be a weekly running contest with a new Tanky awarded each week, that comes with a small prize; and at the end of it all, one grand prize is awarded to the best overall entry.

 

For winning, tankers could be given a unique Tanky winner emblem in game.

Garage has too many tanks to list now...

Design your own Mercenary:

Requirements:

  • Basic info(tier, list of modules used, any special features, etc.)
  • Drawing or some other depiction of what the tank looks like(Can be hand-drawn or computer generated)
  • Name and backstory of the crew to command your tanks(Portrait of them optional)

It would be awesome if the winner's tank could somehow be adapted into the game(within reason of course)

 

I think it would be a great contest because you get the creative element of thinking up the tank combined with the skillful element of drawing and embellishing it.

lol you must not be satisfied with the number of Black Tank threads already!  :teethhappy:   I think it would be close to complete meltdown if anyone started handing out black tanks.  Btw--I am just a poor guy--all prizing is from WG and RaiBOT01!

I think what I will say on this is limit of two--preferably in the same post, but only your best one can win.

I think this contest arena should be-- the forum!

 

Perhaps some trophies could be handed out for:

 

Most nerd rage about black tanks posts

or

Most troll posts about artillery

or

Most posts without ever hitting the enter button for spacing or paragraphs

I would suggest, the most spectacular death scene, dying is easy but going out in a blaze of failed glory is hilarious.
