Tankers!

To celebrate the 8.3 release that introduces the Chinese Tech Tree, we've put together a contest that will be centered around the newest tanks on the block. For the next four weeks, you'll have a chance to earn a bunch of gold and all you have to do is play as any of the Chinese tanks to have a shot at the riches. Check here for the "Art of War" contest details.

Good luck!

Is this top XP for one game, or top average xp in each tank?

This is a really dumb question. Be nice please, lol.

Is it safe to assume that if you don't reach Ace Tanker, you stand no chance at all?

And, to go along with that: An Ace Tanker award does not guarantee you are in the top 100; earlier in the comp, more so than later in the comp?

It is safe to assume.

I'd say correct on both counts. Some people are crazy good at this. :(

Also: Hurrah! A shot at a Type! I won't win either, but having a chance to get one is cool, too. Why does the EU/SEA/RU announcement look prettier with pictures and all? :P

Yay!  An automated contest that I don't have to take screenies and crunch numbers manually for!!!

Edit:
Assuming that the contest begins as soon as 8.3 is available, when will the contest run until?
Do you have to be a top earner in total XP, average XP, or have one of the top positions with most XP earned in a single battle in said tank?
Are the award periodic (daily/weekly)?  Assuming not, but its good information to have.

As much as i like contests for free stuff, it is a slap to the face when the EU server gets about 6 times the amount of prize winners as we do.

Ours is divided into 3 tier groups, they get 17, one for each tank.

In order to participate you simply need to battle with your new Chinese tanks starting from patch launch day (Wednesday 16th Jan) all the way up until the 10th of February. We will then take the results from every battle played with Chinese tanks between these dates to form a top 100 list based on highest experienced earned in a single battle.  As there are 17 tanks this means there will be 17 top 100 groups.

here cometh the rage from many NA players.


Edit:  It's being fixed to 17 tanks.

How does the EU population compare to the NA population?  It could be that they designed it to reward the same % of the player base.  I'm not saying that its what it is, just speculating as to what it might be.

Admittedly, it could just be an inequity between the servers and we are getting short-changed but it'd be nice to actually logically consider if we're getting screwed or not (though I fully understand that the internet is the wrong crowd for logic).

You really dont expect patience from the NA server player base now do you :) god forbid they should have to wait a few hours for there details to be confirmed :) fact is NA players have a far greater chance to win a prize than the EU players due to the player base sizes on both servers but most will overlook that fact :)

Edit EU server usually has atleast 7 or 8 times more players online than the NA server currently there are well over 145,000 players in the EU server and its not peak time yet
