Tankers!

 

The 1-year anniversary of World of Tanks: XBOX 360 Edition is slowly approaching and we would like to celebrate this as a community!  Each week we will focus on a different nation and its celebratory traditions to help build a different part of our party.  This week we are focusing on Germany and one of their birthday traditions of cracking an egg over the birthday tanker's head.  We would like to introduce our own twist on this customary tradition with the Egg Supply Drop.  Your allies need an egg to carry on this tradition, and we need you to get it there safely! We want you to perform an Egg Drop (Not sure what that is? Click here for more info on what an Egg Drop is all about), and document the experience.

The Top 10 Egg Supply Drop creators will acquire a reward of 1,000 gold!

How to join the contest:

  • You must take a raw egg and build a contraption to protect it. This contraption / egg holder may be made out of any materials that you wish.  After which, you will take your contraption (containing your raw egg) and drop it from a height of at least five feet. Then see if it survived! Did your supplies make it intact?
  • You must drop your egg from at least 5 feet high. Please participate safely!
  • Show us a before and after photo in the thread! Please include both photos.
  • Include your Gamertag somewhere in both of your pictures, handwritten on a piece of paper.
  • Your egg does not have to survive to be eligible to win. However, the purpose of the Egg Drop, is to protect your supplies - so give it your best shot!

 

Rules:

  • All players are welcome to join the contest but each player can submit only one entry ("one entry" includes both the "before" and "after" images).
  • The creation must be designed exclusively for this contest.
  • Entries will be judged on creativity, quality, "intactness" of egg, etc.
  • The image requirements are as follows: 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 submission deadline is Friday, February 6 at 06:00 PST (February 6 13:00 UTC).

Heck, I'll give this one a go.

 

My supplies for the egg drop:

one 40 cm long piece of masking tape.

4 tissues

2 pieces of printer paper

scissors

pencil

Egg (Duh.)

 

I call it the 240 mm Premium Egg Shell. :trollface:

 

Before:

After: 

 

Dropped at six feet, the poor thing fell on it's side and cracked wide open. Good splash radius though. :trollface:

We don't need to protect the eggs, the eggs will protect themselves.

I would love to see a video!  That having been said, in order to keep things on an even-playing field, we will only be judging the "before" and "after" images.

I'd like to ask that you create something, or at least tweak it, for this contest specifically.   Thank you for your understanding! :)

Best I could do today. I am working this week and can't do more.

Hope you enjoy. EGG came out intact. :-)

Here:

 

EDIT:

 

Since the contest only asks for before and after pictures they are the first two frames of the video.

Also pictures are here for reference. Before. After.

Can we get an update to the rules? I think everyone should have to break open their egg in an additional after shot to prove it wasn't hardboiled.  Preferably in the spirit of the contest: over another person's head. Or a cat's head. Either one.

 

:trollface:

Agree with Daffy, whether or not your point it valid, it should be brought up over PM, not in the contest page.

I can't clear the contents of you quoting me Daffy. Would you be so kind to clear that for me?
