Hey Tankers!

It's that time of year again where we spend tons of time with family, eat lots of food, and start planning those changes we want to make in our lives. OH, how could I forget? ALL THE SALES!

Now is the time to think about all the awesome upgrades we would like to make to our tanks, be it a new engine, a sweet new turret, or adding in that new disco ball.

Your task: Think about any upgrades you would like to make to your current favorite tank and do so via a traditional or digital drawing. 

Example by Mana WGA

I kept mine very simple. Upgrading my camo to an awesome purple/pink star pattern and adding in some extra ammo rounds on the side for aesthetics. 

1st place: Secret Tank* + Garage Slot 

2nd place: 4,000 Gold + 1 week of Premium Time

3rd place: 2,500 Gold + 1 week of Premium Time

 

How to join the contest:

  • Pick your favorite Tank
  • In a drawing (traditional or digital) add some new sweet upgrades to your favorite tank
  • Be sure to include any fun addition you would like to have inside your tank for you and you crew (you know you want to add in that new hot tub)
  • If you are not the illustrator type do not fret! You may piece together images in photoshop (or related software). 
  • Make sure to have your GamerTag clearly posted on the image somewhere.
  • Share your pimped out tank in this forum thread 
     

Rules:

  • One entry per player
  • Each pimped out tank drawing must be created exclusively for this contest
  • Image requirements: format —JPEG, PNG, or GIF; resolution — between 800x600 and 1024x768 pixels; size — up to 700 KB.
  • The image must comply with the moral, ethical, and legal standards, as well as with the Forum rules.
  • Wargaming gains exclusive rights to the contest image when you post it on the forum, as outlined in the “10. User Generated Content” section of the Terms of Service

 

*The first place winner will be contacted and provided a list of tanks they may choose from as their prize.

The submission deadline is Friday, December 5 at 09:00 PDT (December 5 16:00 UTC)

:( can't do any of this cause no software. What type of stuff do you use to do these kind of things? I always have ideas for the contest but don't know how to do the things. I have great ideas for both of the new contests, I've just never done these type of things and having a tablet makes it dang near impossible unless you can recommend an app.

My submission is rather simple, but its because my glorious KV-1 is a monster tank all on its own, and needs very little improvement to Pimp out

 

 

Added thrusters for faster movement and turning, is all I need!

Pz II j X

This pz II j X is the most extreme tier III in the game. With its super charged 1500hp motor and monster tracks it will tear up the environment and with its upgraded 7,5 cm Kw.K. 40 L/48 canon it can actually put the whalup into every tank it comes across.  The only thing that could slow this baby down would be having a mud run contest, and then it would stop only long enough to claim the prize. The Crew is upgraded to 4 people because heck who wouldn't want to ride in this thing

  1. Commander (Gunner) - Tells you where to go
  2. Driver - Goes where he wants
  3. Loader (Radio Operator) - Lets everyone know where they have been
  4.  Shot-Gun seat (Morale Motivator) - Ya that's right I called it first...  Has the best time EVER

Another one. Keep 'em coming Mana. I'll ask again, Paper and pencil?

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. No use being a damn fool about it.

So whether you make your own or use pre-made materials, you should be fine :)

I did what I could with what I had. Upgrades are a snorkel on each side as every little puddle will drown you. The spoiler on the back is for downforce at high speeds. What you can't see is then flux capacitor on the inside that, once you hit 88mph, will allow you to go back in time and wait a few extra seconds in the garage to avoid team moron you were just on.

A VK 30.01 D with 

  • 88 kwk 43 L/71 gun (with PC Tiger 1 RoF buff) with
  • 120mm of armour instead of the 60 on the regular 30.01 D,
  • The 1200hp Maybach engine from the E-100,
  • -10 degrees of gun depresion,
  • The tracks from the leopard 1 which would give it great ground resistance and a great traverse speed.

 Helped of course by the gods of these forums, cats. (there's bacon too) :great:

I did mine on the Churchill Gun Carrier.  The 32-pdr gun has pretty good pen and alpha damage, but with so much flat armor, it gets taken out way too easily once spotted.  So I thought, some sloped armor in the front wound help increase its survival rate.  I mean, it has such a narrow gun arc, has a view range of <350m, and is sluggish to maneuver...so why not help out this often neglected tank.

I'm sure you know somebody with an old eMachines PC from like 2008 that you can get/borrow/buy...if not, Christmas is coming up, you should ask for a PC/Laptop
