Giving this the old heave ho for the weekend crowd!

 

Also of note, I have been told that the Brett Parson tank codes may only be giving out the Banana Buster instead of all three tanks.  If that turns out to be unfixable, I will likely move it to a 2nd place option (though the first place may still choose it).

 

Also of note, some have suggested prizing.  I just want to note the prize choice selection is not entirely up to me.  But, if there are specific tanks you would like to see available as prizes in the future, go ahead and post those as well, and I will see what I can do (no promises).

I think it would be neat to see a 'Most Creative Ambush' contest. All player and tank types can participate and get their friends involved. And it isnt necessarily a goal that may conflict with the whole teams goal of winning. Fun and strategic all at the same time!

Just a bumpty bump because this is still going and a heads up I am going to post another contest in the contest section of the forum for today!  (Have all these codes and itching to give them away!)

I think the skill based challenges shouldn't have priority as it means the same small pool of folks will generally win.

 

My preference is in game wacky feats, like a flying ram kill, upside down kill, etc. More skilled players are more likely to achieve these, but it gives others a chance.

What would be a really nice reward some day would be a camo voucher. I'd use the heck out of those!

I think they would sell even more war chest if they put camo vouchers in there.  Would love to have camo vouchers in general.

 

 

14 days left.  Surely there are some more Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man ideas out there!  I've seen some post in other threads with good ideas...

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

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.

In no particularly order (other than the order the winners may have posted in), but to alert them to their winning.

Hello GP:

Thank you very much!

Was tempted by the T-32 Proto but I`m a fan of turreted TD`s so going with the Skorpion.

Best Regards,

YB
