It was, it was the best contest I've seen on blitz to date and by a wide margin.   WAIT, WHAT!?   I'm in the top twenty!?  Holy cow!!!  I played over 900 battles to make sure I got the fury prize and I made top twenty:D  wow!  

 

Sly, thanks again and please consider making bingo a regular to semi-regular blitz event, instant classic man, well done!!!:honoring:

 

Only way you make the top 20 is if you did not have 800 battles (or Sly missed the fact that you had 800). The rules stated that those who had 800 got the Fury and did not count against the 20 for the highest win rate. IOW, if you really did fight 900, as I understand the rules, you should be moved to the list of winners who fought 800 battles at 58+% and whoever was 21st is bumped into 20th and gets the Fury.

 

 This whole thing illustrates why doing a contest this complicated by hand is a load of work.

This seems like a very valid point. Not taking away anything from sheriff hitting the top 20, but if battle count was over 800 for the period he should be in the automatic winners list making room for the 21st player.

You played 674 battles over the contest period.

 

I will need to do a dive into the data to see how everything worked out. But it is pretty obvious that the vast majority of people really enjoyed the contest! Yay!

Oh WOW!!!  Thanks Sly & WG! :honoring:

 

I didn't think I would be able to be in the contest for a while, as I was going away for Thanksgiving and would not be able to post images etc.  Weather delayed me by one day, which was sufficient to complete 5 in a row.  After that I was playing every opportunity I could on vacation, but that was no simple task as I was on the edge of cellular signal and had some ping issues to boot...  I was hoping I could break 800 games, and I am glad I was able to do so!

 

It was interesting to say the least.  I've never seen the magic carpet on Oasis Palms, but the ping during that week did put me on a Magic Comet Ride on Oasis.  Little did I know the genie would later bestow on me a Fury! 

 

Yes I got a pic of the Magic Comet Ride...

Question, I got the Fury and it came with 50% crew? I thought premium tanks came with 100% crew. Not a big deal I just bought the 100% crew with gold I had saved up but was just curious about it..

Same here.  I just used gold and got the crew to 100%.  As I understand it, gifted premiums often come with 50% crew.  Not unusual.
