I got a question: When would the winners be announced? the contest is great but I think it can be a little tricky if one doesn't has the freedom and wants one, because it will be on sale until July 10 at 2:00 in the morning ET if I am reading the hour well. So assuming the winners are announced let's say July 10 after that hour and one didn't win, one wouldn't have the chance to buy the Freedom then... Hope I am making sense. I want one and would like to participate assuming I find the time but I wouldn't want to have to wait for the winners to be announced after the Freedom sale is over and miss on it... I think would be maybe better to take a day from the contest (July 8) and the winners are announced let's say July 9, so in that case if one didn't win, one can still buy it from the store without much hurry. Makes sense? Unless you guys announce the winners that very July 9 and the earlier the better I suppose. Just my two cents.. Also another question:What if one already has the freedom? could one pick another rare tank? (let's say the liberte, or pz Hydro) or would it only mean more gold? Thanks. Kudos for still coming on with good contests

I may regret it later, I may even change my mind later, but I take a stand."-  Frank Zappa

I was actually just asking about this. I am going to cut it back by a day to end on Wednesday. That way, if someone doesn't win, they will still have the chance to buy the Freedom. Good catch. :)

Cool! Was just a suggestion, but I for one think is better for all, unlesss someone says otherwise and presents a better argument I suppose. I'll work on mine this weekend :B

 

edit: In this case you may want to also change the date between the parenthesis, btw, to avoid confusion and whatnot.

 

Also: if you could answer my other question would be cool. Would the Freedom go to second place if first place already has one? what if second place and third place also already have one? Cheers!

Just for clarification. You say draw but then say any medium. Is digital in or out?

Digital, hand drawn, painted, wood carving, mashed potato sculpture, and so on. As long as the tanks are recognizable.

Okay thanks. So one is safe to assume that you are no longer splitting digital and non digital entries into two separate contests.

Sorry I missed this one. If the winner already has one, we will look into an alternate prize. Since the Freedom isn't a physical prize, it can't be carried over. If the winner doesn't want another tank and wants to donate their prize, they are allowed to do that as well.

It would depend. If I get a substantial amount of physical vs digital submissions, I might add that as an option. In the end, it all comes down to you guys. However, each person can only submit one entry. We will see what happens if I can justify it. :)

You mean the Freedom would go to second and first place would receive only the gold and prem time? I think would be cool to give first place the price of the Freedom in gold and still give the Freedom to second or third, depending, if second also has Freedom it would only receive the 2000 gold and prem time... dunno, unless it would also receive full Freedom price in gold but maybe that's too much gold given away. Hope I explained myself.

 

Also I think dividing digital vs hand drawn isn't a bad idea. Specially since I think digital can be tricky regarding how original the work really is, for example, maybe a software can automatically draw an image of a tank and make us think it is drawn in the software, not sure how would the contest have to be modified if it's divided though.

 

Anyway I gtg now, but the second date still says July 9, you may want to fix that.

It's happened before where they do but it isn't required. We have plenty of backup ideas. We've had a couple donations from a few of my other contests.

Would someone post a screen shot or two of the freedom in the garage to use as a reference?  Probably won't have the time to do this, but would like a reference of the paint scheme it I do. I have the regular SP to use as geometrical reference.

This is what I could pull up immediately. It isn't in the garage but there is a comparison to a small house.

well if you were to win it and have the freedom all ready i believe they give you the gold in the amount of the tank cost. Wich then you could buy a tank of your choice. it check your tanks you own if or when you win.
