Greeting Tankers!

 

As promised, here is the second Community Created Contest! This is the second time we are running this and we are going to see how it works with a little more promotion to try and get some more votes!  

 

The basic format will mirror the previous one, a two week length. The first week will be voting to determine  all of the factors of what we should run as the contest and the second week will be the actual contest based on the results of the votes!

 

The first part of the poll will be 9/21 Monday - 9/23 Wednesday (2PM PST), the second part of the poll will be up 9/23 Wednesday (3PM PST) -  9/25 Friday.  From there the contest will be created and posted on 9/28 Monday (Noon PST). The contest will run until all the winners have been chosen or until 10/2 Friday.  

 

Please vote in the poll above to help determine what contest will be run next week! It is up to you!

 

** - Please note that this is only a valid option for the "Earn a specific Medal" type of contest. If "Earn a specific Medal" is not selected, this option will not be considered and the next most voted option will be chosen

You should do something crazy like:

 

"Do the most damage in a tier 10 game only using HE"

 

"Do the most damage in a bottom tier tank"  eg. Tier 8 game, you are the tier 6 

 

 


What? You jealous?

Most definitely no raffles with random winners. It should be work=rewards. So any option other than random winners is great.

 

Also is Wargaming cutting back on the rewards? 75 gold for all participants? It used to be several hundred. These payouts are becoming like oreo cookies with less and less of the good stuff.

so to be clear, when you say "drafted up", you mean publish as final and the contest starts, right?  A draft sounds 'un-final', which I think threw some people off last time.

I agree with double! Give a prize tank to the top participants. Gold is somewhat easy to obtain for those who can afford to purchase it. A prize tank gives the solid tanker with no funds a way to truly win a trophy. Too little gold is either a free xp conversion for a module or crew training. Trophies are what were after! Tanks can be obtained by griding alone. 

 

I reccomend victory for the prize. Tons a players hate they didnt get it while it was here.

Agreed - changed!

 

Thanks for pointing that out.

I was given a specific amount of gold I could use for this contest. So I based the rewards on the average amount of winners in similar "everyone wins who enters" contests and gave myself a small buffer. This is what it worked out to be.

if you're willing to help WG by spending money on their game, it makes sense that you can be rewarded as well.

I think there should be some random winner contests, I feel like I am just at a disadvantage with some contests because I have a job and can't play all the time. While others can play more than I can. Also I'm a decent player, but not the best. So sure some contests are easy, but the best players get the rewards? If the top players get the rewards then everyone else would never have a chance. While yes, the best players should get rewarded for playing good. I think a few random winner contests would let those who aren't as good as the best players win something. Sure you can't let everyone be a winner, and I'm not saying that. But if we just keep rewarding the top players it would just be the same few over and over getting the prizes and eventually people would stop trying to win the contests. Just my two cents

I must agree with Orion the Warrior throw some bones to those players that are not elite players. I love this game but I must admit I'll never be in the top  echelon of players but I'm OK with that.

Make reward a limited edition tank +  garage slot. Also how about single tier battles example all tanks tier 6 all types of  vehicles, but make  competition for all tiers.

You should run a contest for every tier... that way  you have more people playing top to bottom

...they all spend mooo... money.... don't you have a marketing department. ... need one?

How about a multilayered contest.  One consisting of a an obtainable goal for the casual player along with a higher reward for a more difficult goal for the really good players out there.

Good idea - far too complex for a poll. This thing is meant to be a super simple and basic "build your own contest" deal. Adding any more layers of complexity to it would cause the creation process to drag on for too long.
