Tankers!

 

The KV-5 is back in the store for a very limited time! This means you are more likely to run into these beasts right now on the battlefield. We want you to show off your KV-5 kills!

 

Post an image showing off your KV-5 kills.

 

Your image needs to look like this:

 

 

Your image CANNOT look like this:

 

On Monday, we will close the thread, and choose 10 random, valid entries to receive 750 gold!

One entry per person? And will full health kills count more than things like one hitpoint kills?

The winners are totally random. It does not matter if you get 1 kill or 16 kills:amazed:, but you are probs best putting a good picture up as you might get labelled a screb, scrub or whatever the latest word for it is.

World of tanks Auto lock edition,  because aiming shouldn't be a skill.

Now that's some karmic justice well done

Hey Pain, will the host have the option of turning premium ammo off?

Nope.  Didn't even occur to me to have this.  Maybe cause it turns off the ability for players to support us

PS: I cant get the image to work with tiny pic. Anybody any suggestions because I think it's kinda bad now...

 

Suggestions for what?  How to get tiny pic to work?  Other image hosting options?  I don't know about tiny pic, but I use photobucket and it works great.  Hopefully that's the info you're looking for.

Alright.

First match I tried to do this I got a platoon of 4 KV5's on the opfor :P. I managed to kill 2. The other two that are there I only managed to track.

Sadly it was a loss, because the frontline collapsed pretty quickly :(

I already figured it out.

However I can't find the delete post button (I know I'm stupid :P)

Very cool.  Also, I don't know that a post can be deleted by anyone other than an admin.  I wouldn't worry about it.

I can’t live without
So you won’t recognize me

Contest rules are confusing, need buff.

 

"This means you are more likely to run into these beasts right now on the battlefield" implies you can participate by killing KV-5s. So I can participate even if I don't own a KV-5? Or do you mean I am more than likely to run into myself playing a KV-5 on the battlefield?

 

"Post an image showing off your KV-5 kills." Do you mean I should show off all the kills I got in the KV-5 I don't own or show off how I killed a KV-5?

 

The image is of a game Nyx played in a 105leFH1882 and doesn't show any kills or even damage to any of these KV-5s we're supposed to be running into on the battlefield. So I can play any tank and kill anything to enter the contest?

Overthinking it friend :)

 

The images were merely to demonstrate picture quality. Niko doesn't want eye strain, so post a clear image. The title is "Hunt for KV-5" and while you could interpret that as "find it in the store to buy" it just means find one in the game and kill it. Take a picture of results screen and post it and you are entered in the contest.

even if its "obvious", when Contests and Rules are generated, they need to be CLEAR and PRECISE

They've had TONS of issues with OPs, Contests, Events, and Bundles being worded incorrectly or designed with the wrong rules in mind, so this isn't a new issue

Haha, guilty as charged, Tetris. Thanks for clarifying. :)

Good point. I might be overthinking this one, but there seems to be a larger issue. Maybe wg should think about hiring an editor to proofread everything.

I could do that.  I wouldn't have let slip their ad talking about using the "accuracy" of the T14, or the one advising using a T2 Light to "circle your enemies", much less allowed the training video suggesting buying a premium tank if you "just want an edge".
