Yay!  It's Christmas time!  And other Winter Time Holidays that people may celebrate.  Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Bodhi Day, Decemberween, and for those of you still playing World of Warcrack the Feast of Winter Veil.

 

And that means together-ness and Holiday Cheer.  We've got the lighthouse decorated up with multi-colored lights, empty beer cans, and whatever else that's green and red that we could find laying around without much effort.

 

And to Celebrate the fact that Persil fell of the ladder while decorating and didn't break anything (Mainly because he landed on Psyberius) we are going to do a little "togetherness" themed competition for every [SPUD] and [SPUDX] girl and boy.

 

So here's what we are looking for.

 

Screen shots of platooned battles from now until... well let's say January 28th at noon central time, because that seems like a sort of decent end date, with one member from [SPUD] and/or one member from [SPUDX] with the highest combined base XP of the two platoon mates.  We'll be running this for different tiers individually, with different prizes associated with the different tiers.

 

Tier 8 - Each winner will receive a 10 dollar gift card (iTunes or Google Play)

Tier 7 - Each winner will receive a 10 dollar gift card (iTunes or Google Play)

Tier 6 - Each winner will receiver a custom made signature done by Tinmanic to fit their very own style and personality (At very least a 10 dollar IRL value)

Tier 5 - Each winner will receive a 10 dollar gift card (iTunes or Google Play) *CH III not eligible because it's broken OP with it's XP multiplier.

Tier 4 - Each winner will receive a custom Stick man/MS Paint Avatar done by myself (ahredstealth) to fit their very own style and personality.  (At very least a 14 cent IRL value)

Tier 3 - Each winner will receive a custom digital mystery prize from the Tater Council.

 

Each tier must have it's own unique platoon team to be a valid entry.  (That means that if Persil and Psy enter a platoon game for tier 8, they cannot enter any other tiers with that same platoon.  They must have different partners for every tier they enter.)  If their entry at tier 8 gets beat, they can then re-enter a new game at tier 8, or any other tier.  So to make an entry for all six eligible tiers, you must have six different platoon mates.

 

To enter please post up the Personal results page and the Battle results page of any battle between now and the end time.  (The first page that says "Victory! or Defeat! or Draw!" with the time stamp on it, and the page with all 14 tanks with the damage and base XP on it for everyone.)  Only one person from the platoon needs to post to enter for both parties.

 

Because we want everyone to feel like a special and unique snowflake here in SPUD(X) each person will only be eligible for one prize each.  If someone wins multiple tiers, we will ask them which prize they would like, and then go to the next highest base XP in the next highest "combined XP pair" of the second place platoon.  (I think that sounds more confusing then it is.  We'll go to the next highest platoon, and the higher of the two gets the prize.  Hope that's easier to understand.)  (**That means if your partner already won something, the platoon mate of the highest XP combo still wins, and then next platoon down, the highest base XP guy gets the next prize.)  {okay, I'm going to stop on this now, because it's getting ridiculous.}

 

Also, here at SPUD(X) we realize that tanking skills aren't really the only reason you're camping out at the lighthouse with the rest of us.  We like Campfire Stories.  (Me more then anyone else.)  So our Wise and Generous Ookla the Mok has volunteered up a bonus prize for the Best Story Posted (hereby referred to as BSP) in this thread regarding a Platooned Game in the Contest Time Frame (Judged solely by the Mok).  Even I don't know what the prize is, but I'm going to be bringing my A-game in author-ific attempts to win it.  Challenge dropped!  Who will Accept?

 

Feel free to ask questions, voice concerns, spread holiday cheer, and post up winning screen shots.

 

GOOD LUCK TO ALL THE TATER-NATION BOYS AND GIRLS!

Reserved for any clarification regarding story time and to eventually post the winner.

 

Your story will be judged on secret criteria that may or may not lean towards creativity, drama, humor, off-hand references, and assorted linguistic shenanigans.

 

The prize will be better than a pair of old socks, but not as sweet as a new car. Think of this as you choosing door number two on a game show. They reveal door number one as a new car, bummer. Door number three is a donkey wearing a tutu. You're going to be happy with door number two, mostly because you do not become the owner of some high maintenance diva donkey.

Thanks for breaking my fall Psy ! Sorry about your broken bot parts. I'll get you new ones from Hackers R Us as soon as I can.

 

Just to be certain a platoon of Spud-Spud, Spudx-Spudx or Spudx-Spud are all valid ?

Yeah, I don't really care if it's a SPUD/SPUDX platoon, or a SPUDX/SPUD platoon, but I would like to see inter-clan relationships building, which is why I went with one from each tag.

 

Good question though!

Rommel, it is up for you to decide if you want to contact leadership via PM or use a contest thread to complain about an incident.

 

Choose wisely.

Great idea guys, looking forward to platooning with more of you. 

 

Also so it's good that it will push people to friend each other in game to see who is on or not.

As long as the Clan Tag is after your name in the screen shot, I'll allow an entry into the contest.  (For Existing SPUD/SPUDX members hoping back and forth, I'm going to say that you need to be in the clan (ie: Have a TAG) for the purpose of this contest, because I was kinda hoping for everyone to make new friends and platoon with new people, so hoping back and forth to get platoon mates wasn't really what I had in mind...

 

I suppose I could flip-flop on that verdict if I have a good enough argument put up by someone.  Johnny Cockhran me if you feel that strongly about it.

Next round of questions. Say Psy posts a tier 8 entry with Alphabet. Is that it for Psy at tier 8 or can he post another entry at tier 8 with Gusman if he gets a higher combined damage. Next one: Say Psy and Alphabet post a tier 8 and a couple days later just really rock one out. Can they repost? What I am getting at here is that I would like entries posted early so we can see where the bar is set. If we can only post once, you will be buried at the end of the contest.

What I am getting at here is that I would like entries posted early so we can see where the bar is set. If we can only post once, you will be buried at the end of the contest.

 

First question.  If Psy and Alphabet post up a tier 8 game and then later Psy and Gusman have a better Tier 8 game, then I suppose Psy or Gusman can post up that game, as it's a new platoon'd game.  Poor Alphabet will have to go out and try again.

 

Next Question.  If Psy and Alphabet run a platooned game, and post it, and it stands as the top game, they may not post a better game for that tier, no.  If they really want to, they can save it for if they get knocked off the pedestal, but who knows if that may or may not happen.  I don't think it will be to bad, but who knows... maybe I'm wrong.  I've been wrong before, and I'll be wrong again.

 

Also, I'm going to say that I am not eligible for prizes, as I'm freak'n special, but I will say that I am eligible to run platoons, and [SPUDX] plus Stealth results will count for said other player.  (ie: If we end up as top combined XP, the other person will win, and then we'll roll to the next highest platoon game/high XP player.)  Mainly because I still want to have fun with friends.  Also, let's be honest, I'm a skrub, and only stand a chance in tier 3/4 anyway.

Okay, per persil's request, any spud platoon combo will work.  Spud/spud and spudx/spudx will also work.
