Tankers!

 

World of Tanks: XBOX 360 Edition is as much a strategic positioning game as anything else.  We want you to choose a traditional chess piece and turn it into a tank-inspired version of itself.  The best Pawn / Knight / Bishop / Rook / Queen / King will receive 1,250 gold!

 

Here is a very simple example of a Tank Chess piece that I came up with:

tzw64KH.png

 

Chess Piece: Queen

Tank Chosen: Object 261 (Because it can attack in any direction/at any range unless blocked by another obstacle)

 

How to join the contest:

  • Create your Tank Chess piece as a concept illustration/graphic/etc.
  • Include your Gamertag somewhere in your concept (Placing your Gamertag on your concept illustration/graphic/etc. indicates that this is your creation).
  • Include a small description as to why you chose that specific tank for your chess piece.
  • Post a picture of it to this thread

 

Rules:

  • All players are welcome to join the contest but each player can submit only one entry.
  • The creation must be designed exclusively for this contest.
  • Entries will be judged on creativity, quality, etc.
  • If you are using an image, the image requirements are as follows: format —JPEG, PNG, or GIF; resolution — between 800x600 and 1024x768 pixels; size — up to 700 KB.
  • If you are using an image, the image must comply with the moral, ethical, and legal standards, as well as with the Forum rules.
  • If you are using an image, 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 submission deadline is Friday, January 16 at 06:00 PST (January 16 13:00 UTC).

This is my attempt to do something a little different.

The Rook, because it can hit the other team from across the board.  It fires deadly pawn strikes.

Why can't we submit one entry for each category? I'm not asking to able to win multiple times, but odds of winning will depend on which category you're in. Thanks for considering this idea.

Here's my Chess piece. Maus for Rook. (Please excuse my detail, I did it in MS Paint.) I chose the Maus for Rook because it seems to resemble a tower that is made of steel, and I thought it would fit the part perfectly, though the Maus is surprisingly nimble, and not fast, it would still be a great rook to protect the king piece.

I figured that Tier I tanks should make up the pawns, so had to go with one of my favorites - The Leichttraktor! :great:

Yeah, so basically if a person waits until the last minute to see which category has the fewest entries and then enters in that category they'll have the best odds of winning. Alternatively they could wait and see which category has the worst entries and improve their chances by entering in that category. It's like playing chess with the contest! Sort of...

It's a Bishop...that doubles as a Bishop.  Not altogether clever, but the gun traverse on the SPG is almost as narrow as the straight line attack ability of the chess piece.

There's only one tank that can be the Bishop, and that's the Bishop. i pick the Bishop because it just looks like a church on wheels with a 4.5 Howitzer pocking though the roof!

The knight is the only chess piece that can jump an obstacle and can't be blocked.

My Piece, The Maus King

-Why is it the king? The king of HP and armour that is.

-How ever like the king on its own it can be helpless against faster(move more spaces) tanks(pieces).

Made using Windows Fresh Paint.

Edit:forgot 'turtle' in my name, had to change the image so it said my full name.

Second edit:discovered images was slightly too small to fit with the rules, so I made it bigger.
