The functionality didn't exist then. It does now, so we decided to give it a test drive.

So you can do this when WG add new tanks to existing trees? Like the Leopard branch this year  or second german TD tree in 2020?

Who is this putz, and can he be put on a permanent RO?  Seriously dude, get a life and stop insulting the devs.  That goes for everyone bitching about this new contest.  WG produces a new contest, giving out a ton of gold, and all everyone on here can do is piss and moan?

How about everyone instead says THANKS GeneralDirection, this is a great new start to new player contests.....love it!
^^ This

I for one would like to say thanks for the contest. Also, I like the new auto-submission system. I hope it works out well.

Each person with a top 100 performance will win gold.  What if a person has multiple top performances?  Say Garbad has 10 of the top performances in a tier 10 Chinese tank, will he get 50k gold?  It would stand to reason that the best players may likely have multiple top performances.  Also, I thought I heard someone mention that this is a "Global Event".  Is there a top 100 list per server, or will all servers be combined to create a single top 100 list?

This contest is going to be running for some time.  Will you do anything to post the current top 10 or top 100 results per tank?  Would be great to see a leader board and see what we have to shoot for.

GD, how recently did the new techniques/technology that let's you do this kind of "automated" contest come down the pipe? Was it something that you guys got rather recently, and the timing was just perfect, or was it something you guys have had for a couple months, and you were waiting for a good chance to put it through it's paces?

Is it safe to say that if a player can manage 1st class and Ace class Mastery Badges on a relatively consistent basis, they stand a pretty good chance?

If they gave a permanent RO to everyone who tried to keep WG honest about the quality of their game events, few would be happy about it, I assure you.

Well... now we know for sure that every single chinese tank out there will always be shooting gold rounds.

At least for the next 4 weeks.

Don't get me wrong, free stuff is always good... but this is going to be a nasty 4 weeks long thing.

You can only have one MAX round, not top rounds.

Looks like the pedo-tankers will be out in force during this event.  Tiers 1 and 2 will be festooned with them.

General insults. Warning issued.

We'll see how this one works out and determine if we want to do another one this widespread.

Yep, that's a possibility.

Very recently. It's been in the development pipeline for quite a while now (it was inspired by the all star events), and just passed through testing about two weeks ago.

If you can score an Ace badge pretty reliably, you should have a good chance in this. Ace badges aren't given out too often, so 1st class probably has a good chance too. Ultimately it all depends on the number of each tank playing during the event.

Unfortunately we don't have a leader board UI for this. It's a behind-the-scenes data query at the moment. It's an idea to request for the future, but could take some time to develop.

Perhaps WG could share, during the course of the event, the high and low scores of the top 100

The answer to the last question is this event is going  to run for 4 weeks.  So you will have from the 8.3 release until 23:59 PST,  on February 14th to get your Maximum Exp Scores.

GD could one player win the "whole" pot of prizes and walk out with 178K in gold?
Yeah I thought there are only 13 tanks.. anyway 178k gold would be...well, about $800-$900 value but you probably have to either play all day to unlock both t10s or spend a good several tens of k gold to get them at first place.

I appreciate wargaming taking out the requirement to send in screenshots.  That was always a turn off to me in past contests.

-needs a raise for whoever thought of this at WG, first true to the core kudos i give to WG in a long time  :Smile_great:
