Okay folks we are going to be sticking with the existing format for the All Star contest,  and it will be continuing with the previous format.

Seriously.  It took a week at the new job to come to the decision to maintain the status quo?

Try to keep in mind that these contests are the only endgame activity for soloplayers.  I miss the Gaea era tbh; she almost always had a contest running, which meant there was always something to do.

SaVaGee,

It means we are continuing the tiered structure of the All Star events from the last few times it was run.

Desdichado,

Don't worry there is more to come.  I am stepping into the role,  and taking up the reigns,  and you will be seeing more contests in the near future.

Okay folks sorry to put this off for one more week but I am going to have to push this back.

I am not going to be in the office next week,  and I don't want to start a contest back up and not be here to make sure it runs smoothly.  I am sorry for the  delay.  After next week we will be bring it back.

Hey Uncle Rampage Santa. Us lowly orphans would appreciate a tier 7 all star/mvp for the new type-62 and the new t71. It's totally up your alley for the promoting the new stuff, and Christmas cheer. Ho Ho Ho...

If you're not gonna be here next week - do something really really rough like 'Christmas Miracle MVP' which requires Top Gun, Patrol Duty and Sniper (in a tier 7!) and simply do a 'first to achieve it, wins 5-10k' type deal. Chances are you're not gonna have too many emails to check, and its simply first verified game with those condition wins (will take you 5 mins to find the winner).

Let me see what I can do for that week.  Last time I put out a difficult MVP people got up in arms that it was impossible...  but we did have a winner in the end.

That's the MVP that inspired my suggestion.

They really don't have to be crazy since crazy barriers to entry just reduce participation.  People that have done everything else are just looking for something to do with a competitive tilt, but we still want something perceived as achievable.  Just whatever you do, get rid of that 1 point per spotted tank in the allstar format; there's not much quite as soul destroying in this game as having some 10 kill, 3-5 damaged game but knowing you're not going to have a winning entry because there was a 40% win rate T-50 on your team that suicide scouted and took all the initial spots.  One shouldn't lose a good entry because of things out of their control; it's pretty much the antithesis of a competitive event.

edit:  If you're looking for inspiration, this was a memorable MVP:  http://worldoftanks....nd-goliath-mvp/

Major_Rampage is on the case (and needs to update his signature :P). No need to panic. 'sides, you know what SerB says.

Well, I believe SerB once said in an interview: "Real men don't panic... but when they do, they make sure their calendars are up to date".

Just wanted to put that out there. :-)

Frankly, I expected the new after battle report to end the typical MVP.  The old replay format always provided clear proof of achieving the goals.  No more sifting through the last few days for your best performance in a particular tank.  Now you have to take a screen shot of your garage results, or it didn't happen.

I like Allurai's suggestion.  MVPs are now something you find out about, then purposely go out to achieve.  As such, there's likely going to be a very small population going for it.  It should be something very difficult to achieve.

Individual events in the first 10 months of 2012:  70+
Individual events in the last 2 months of 2012:  1

Like the disclaimer always says, I guess past performance does not guarantee future results.

I just got back into the office today.  Sorry I was tied up for last week (more info here)

I am taking care of the aftermath of the sheriff event,  and then getting an All Star event is next my to do list.  Keep your eyes on the news section of the website,  or this forum section.
