August 19th.  Better known as National Potato Day, or as we here at [SPUD] refer to it, "Pretty much the best holiday ever."

 

 

In honor of this great day, a challenge is being issued forth!

 

Tinmanic and I have put together a challenge that we both believe will be a good time, and allow anyone who wants to participate a chance to show their stuff, and help out your friendly neighbor in a game of tank combat!

 

What we'd like to see is who can get the most Normalized Assisted Damage in a game between now and noon on August 19th, based on tier.  (Noon Central Standard Time)

 

What I mean by that is we are going to try and "normalize" it based on the amount of total HP of the Red team and the amount of Assisted Damage you did.  This will give all tiers a chance to compete.  (Because which is more impressive, a tier 2 with 2000 assisted damage, or a tier ten with 2005 assisted damage?)

 

What you need to do to win:

Your team must win the game.

You must have Assisted Damage for your team.

Highest percentage of Assisted Damage versus Red HP wins.

You do not need to survive the battle.

 

 

What I need from you guys:

Screen shots of your games with your best damage assists between now and noon on August 19th.  I'm going to need the Victory Screen with date stamp, the battle results screen, and the Statics Tab as shown below.

We're gonna run two brackets, one for [SPUD]s and one for non-[SPUD]s.  (spuds in waiting, if you're signed up you're gonna count as spuds in contests.)

 

For the [SPUD]s, I'm going to offer up a 10 dollar (or 9.99, however it works.) iTunes or Android card thingy, which I assume I can just send a code on, and don't actually have to mail out a stupid little card, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.  (If you actually want the card, I'll see about mailing it out, you goofy kids.)

 

For the non-[SPUD]s, I've got all of this to offer up for the TOP (ASSISTANT) GUN.

1) Official [SPUD] digital decoder ring.  - Using this high tech piece of equipment you will be able to decipher all [SPUD] communications when you are on the same team as us in the gaming battle grounds.

2) A digital Over-Under High-Five - As seen in the volley ball scene in Top Gun, all [SPUD]s will form a digital line and give you an over under high five.  (Don't expect Ookla to make both high-fives, he's a Mok.)

3) Goose Call out - From Potato Day on until we get bored with it, every time any [SPUD] sees you in battle we will call out, "Talk to me Goose!"  (I've got to be honest, this one makes me jealous.  I'm a bit disappointed I can't participate just for this reward... but I've excluded myself.)

 

 

As always, I'm going to hold the final judgement on all entries.  I have a group of high ranking clan officials that I will discuss with, but in the end it's my decision.  Any shenanigans with illegalities to the user agreements will result in immediate disqualification from this and all future contests.  Don't be a D-bag.  Spuds don't like D-bags.

 

Top five [SPUD]s

1. T4four - 36.04% Assist Damage (4159/11540)

2. Nightporter13 - 23.28% Assist Damage (880/3780)

3. FDFL - 19.78% Assist Damage (1840/9300)

4. Paukenwirbel - 19.76 % Assist Damage (812/4110)

5. Furicle - 19.25 % Assist Damage (1819/9450)

 

Top Five non-[SPUD]s

1. utrear - Pretty much the only other guy to even post up a screen shot!

2. Could have been you

3. Could have also been you.

4. Would have been below you.

5. And the last empty honorable mention spot went completely empty.

 

 

For those of you that don't know how to get "Damage Caused with Your Assistance," the easiest way is to spot for other tanks.  You can also shoot out the tracks of a Red tank, and all damage done while the Red is tracked will be assisted damage.

 

Good luck to everyone!  Have fun out there!

 

Get going guys, you have from now until noon (CST) on August 19th!  Let's see who can be the most helpful!

Well, I suppose we should put the winners here.  It is why I reserved it.

 

I'll go big and bold because... well... potato!

 

[SPUD] winner:

T4four - 36.04% Assist damage!

 Way to help out there, and be a good neighbor!  I think it's pretty solid to think about the fact that you helped cause one third of the damage in that game.  It helps you, it helps the team, and that's good for business.

 

non-SPUD:

Well, nobody really entered... but we do have an honorable mention, and that's pretty cool!  So I'm going to hand out the digital decoder ring, and pretty much let it up to the individual [SPUD] as to whether or not they are down with the over-under high five thing, and the GOOSE CALL OUT.  I for one will be looking for you.

 

Sort-of winning-est non-SPUD:

utrear - he posted a screen shot with assisted damage!

 

GG everyone.  Thanks to all who participated.  I'm currently working on T4four's winning request.  Hopefully I'll be able to get it this weekend.

 

Spoiler

 

 

What I learned from this event:

 

I think we had pretty solid participation, to be fair...  I think next time I may have to put something out in game as well...  I also think that may bring some of the less forum-minded people out for the fun.

 

As far as the non-clan people... well, I'll have to work on that one.  Apparently no iTunes card, no care... or maybe it didn't get advertised enough...  who knows?

 

Regardless, it was good clean fun.

Despite my shortcomings on executing a proper high-low five (in addition, as a Mok, I am deathly afraid of water so being on the beach is challenge enough), I will follow up on all Top Gun related celebrations of participants. It is with great enthusiasm that I inquire on the Sit-Rep of my trusty compadre Goose.

 

A great and fun contest with a totally unique challenge. Tip of the cap to the quality dudes leading us SPUDs.

Great idea! Seems like a good teamwork building contest versus the usual "Go steal 4,5 or 6 kills" contest.

Oh.  Good question.  Central Standard time.  Because I can look at my watch for that.  I'll edit the intro post.

 

I was up at two this morning staring at my ceiling fan while the wife softly snored beside me thinking, "Boy...  I wonder what kind of tom-foolery I can dream up for that tank game I play..."  I don't sleep much.  I drink a lot of Redbull.  And I'm twitchy...

 

It's kind of a potent mixture of barely sane enough to function in public... and come up with zany stuff.

 

Oh, and Tinmanic helped.  A lot.
