I agree, if I'm reading this correctly. This surely shouldn't be? WG care to comment? Or are you going to ignore this? Nobody should have an advantage.

Is it sad I’d rather have the runner up prize than the first place prize?! :P

^^^^^ all of the above doesn't make sense. Did anyone think about this? Or just go with it?

Cool! That sounds like a totally fair competition that doesn't cater to the paying customers at all. That's exactly what you want to see in a FREE TO PLAY game. A competition that's designed to screw over the free to play crowd. I love it! Since I don't own either of the mentioned Premium tanks, here's my Tiger P entry from today. Enjoy.

 

 

PS. Minto, this competition is just wrong! Honestly, how can you put a pay wall condition like this? Shameful...

So, the contributors vote but in a close one the fact a player had used a vehicle currently on sale gave them just enough to pip the post.

Yeah, thanks. Not interested in participating when it's unfair to people who don't post a pic with one of the two tanks.


Remember, it's just a game!

Why are people complaining that those that contribute more are rewarded more?

a good question is, does the Striker and Scourge count or does it HAVE to be the unskinned versions?

The judging does make sense, not heard of complaints until now. As for this specific contest, i don't like it. I would say, if they absolutely have to go with 2 votes, make it any Soviet Heavy or German TD so could be a Waffle, a Grille, an IS-3, an Object 257 etc (or even a Marder). 

 

Long as free tanks are included i'm fine with this. Or the other option is remove the 2 vote rule altogether and exclude Overpowered Tanks. I do think difficulty should be a factor. For example, It's harder to do 3000 Damage in a TVP VTU than in a Skoda T50.

A popularity contest isn't intended to be fair to begin with anyway.

In all honesty, i haven't seen many complaints about the judging up to this point. This contest though i do agree with the players on this one. I miss entering these but it's fun judging as well.

I've moved to my Dialga88-x account in the game and on the Forums. If you need me, you can contact me there. :)
