I think all winners should win 250 gold. Can't do much with 75 gold.

Edited by Geewizz3, 21 September 2015 - 06:07 PM.

YES to +1,-1 MM. The game is more fun with PMM on every tank.

High tiered tanks, E100,IS4,E-75,ST-1 and T-54.

You should focus on light tanks. They are available to all and will require players to actually work for the prize. I mean if it was a most dmg mission, a player with an E-100 or Death Star would have an huge edge over everyone else. 

Favorite tanks: E-75, Cromwell, Nashorn, KV-2, SU-152 and the Shinob

Lines currently grinding: AMX 50B, Obj. 268, E50, T110E5, & JagdPanzer E-00

Completed lines: STB-1, E-100

Lol why have so many voted to give everyone who tried a reward? 75 gold is useless. If we reward every player with gold, and we go by the number of players and however much gold they have to give. I highly doubt everyone would actually get 75 gold.

I want to see some contests that reward premium tanks that can only be one not purchased with real money. 


I really think they need a premium tank or tank line that people see and say wow he's not a n00b he had to win that tank...

The last time a contest offered a unique tank as prize, the Pz2J, the amount of cheating was over 9000.


Doubtful a unique prize will ever be offered again.

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.

No maybe make it a special tank that we vote for because then those with the victory get nothing make it fair for all

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.


almost sounded like the definition of missions, but I agree with your point about a "ratcheted" contest for casual players to compete - like combining the goals & rewards above:  "75 gold for medal A, but 250 gold if you get medal A and B, and so on...".  Good idea.


Also casual players typically can't jump into the game at a moment's notice to compete in a "first 100 of [whatever]" kind of contest, so I hope those casual players like me are voting with that in mind...hint hint

They get the value of the Victory in gold, so about 3000-4000 gold depending.



Personally, I find myself motivated a lot more when the prize at the end is a premium tank, rather than gold. I spent probably 15 hours total for that War Never End Quietly contest where the Fury was the reward. Gold comes and goes, a prem vehicle (usually) lasts forever.


Bouns points if it's a past exclusive like the Snowstorm, Fury or the E-25 #1, you'll see a heck of a lot more participation because you can't get those vehicles normally. 

I sometimes drive Warships too.

There could be a contest that could be for premiums only. People who don't have a premium tank could be gifted the LTP so they aren't left out. The prize could be gold, premium time, or even a premium tank of the winners choice.


Just an idea I thought to toss into the idea circle.

In my workplace I sell propane and propane accessories, but on the battlefield I sell propain and propain accessories.

I like the idea of a premium / hard to get tank as a reward for future contests. Dont get me wrong, I could use the gold, but when I can afford to buy some, I use it to buy garage slots for future grind expansion and a premium tank to practice new styles of fighting. Gift tanks and garage slots are the way to go in my opinion. 


I really like how you guys take our input and actually listen. Makes the difference between a good game and a great one. Thanks. 


Idea for the future, give the winners a choice between 2 prizes... gift tank or gold or free XP conversion to module up an existing tank to ease the grind. Just a side thought.

Should be a reward for completing some special assignment. Cuz if all the players compete, the top giys who have already won a lot of contests win... AGAIN. make a mission where every individual can do it themselves, to challenge themselves. So you dont care if there are 1000 people better than you. Cuz its not competitive

Here's my opinion on these events


There should be a participation prize, but something small, 100 gold or less. That way everyone is, in some way, satisfied with having earned something during the contest.


Meanwhile, those who perform better should earn better prizes. I propose a percentile system:


50 percentile - More gold than participation prize. Let's say, 500

70 percentile - A bit more gold. Let's say 750

80 percentile - More gold. 1000

90 percentile - 1000 gold plus something extra (garage slot, low-tier premium tank, etc.)

95 percentile - 1000 gold plus something extra, double the amount that 90 percentile gets

99 percentile - Extremely good prize, like 1500 gold and a Premium tank

Top 5 - The top 5 players in the given competition receive a prize that WG deems appropriate, such as one of those rumored tier 9/10 Premiums or whatever


This system would require a competition that involves the sum of performances. For example, accumulate the most base EXP over the course of a week. This kind of system is easily managed by in-game coding, and do not depend on forum screenshots or whatever. Literally anyone can participate if they wish. The rewards are much greater than previous competitions, thus greatly increasing both the amount of participation and the "street cred" of the 99 percentile and Top 5 winners.


My above example is more suitable for a very large competition such as a Christmas holidays competition, but for smaller scale competitions that commemorate war holidays or whatever, the prizes can simply be reduced. The prizes for the percentiles are solely based on what WG wants and everyone is happy: The competition attracts many more players (assuming WG takes advantage and advertises the competition), increases the value of the competition because the reward system gives so much, and makes everyone feel happier because everyone gets at least the participation prize. Those who work hardest and accumulate the most amount will get grander prizes.


Anyone else think this system is much better? Now that I review my post I can see that the game addicts will have an advantage because they will be playing much more, but there is little opportunity to cheat because it is based solely on your performance. Blocking incidents such as the one during the Pz. II J competition will be less likely if the measurable quantity is something like the net experience instead of experience in one game.

You should do a special event where you can only use a tank destroyer and 3 kills at least in ten games or more and the more games you get 3 or more the more gold you get
