Easter Eggs Found and Shot

Easter Riddles Secret:

There were three places where an Easter Egg could be found. The main trick was that it wasn’t necessarily supposed to be an egg in its direct meaning. Only 13 players got the idea right.

Thus the first place to hide the “Egg” was the game itself: “…Find them, if you can, Hound them, happy men! Show us all if in the fight Easter egg escaped or died…” The task was to detect a player under the name of “WOTEasterEgg” who appeared in game in 7 battles during the day when the event was going on. There was only one player who managed to decipher this part of the riddle. For his resourcefulness d_black_se gets 5000 gold.

The second place was easily figured out by most of the participants. “…Try to find among the floods, Trolls and millions of thoughts That belong to all in WOT,” – these words were about the forums. And the task was to find posts of a player called WOTEasterEgg. There were 3 players who emailed the right findings to the e-mail address needed but the fastest one was aRmoreD_eX. His prize is 2500 gold.

The last part of the riddle was possibly the most difficult one. “…Where nothing but good will Leads a sage to share his lore With the ones who trust him a lot,” – everybody who plays WOT definitely knows the name Overlord. A WG representative whose opinion is highly respected by players allowed to use his blog as another field for celebrating Easter in World of Tanks. There were 9 people who figured out the hints given in the riddle. All of them will get their prizes and the main ones (2500 gold) go to Cousteau and rahx.

The festive event was organized for you to have fun in first place. We do hope you had it! Congratulations on Easter once again and congrats to lucky winners too!

I found the overlord egg long time ago, but didn't send a mail until late times :/

Thought you need to find all three to claim the award, but thanks for the 250!

I found the Egg on Overlord's blog quickly...But, alas I thought it was only for the first "finder" and it was marked as found?? so, I took no action?  Foiled again.

This contest was not fun.

It was like we all just got lined up and someone fired a pistol before anyone even knew what we were racing for...

Waste of time/space/effort really.

Maybe next time you could involve the game in your contest.

That's a very poor assumption.

I agree with Manhands, next time it would be nice if the game were involved.

I was searching the maps until I realized that if a new item were to be placed on a map, it would require content to be downloaded IE a whole new map or at least an object file.  Since I had kids and grandkids awaiting my attention I spent my time with them.

Well they need to patch the game to do that but kudos to people that figure it out.

thanx for the fun.  I'd suggest you  have the tanker run more than 3 matches though  that limits the number of players who potentially saw him to 87.

but it was different, and fun (though I may be biased here)  thanks again for the days amusement

Hurray! Awesome 250 gold!!! But curious... I found both Overlord's blog and WOTEasterEgg's post and sent both in and seeing as only 3 people found and emailed in WOTEasterEgg's post and 9 for Overlord's blog posting of the #6 EasterEgg doesn't that mean I get 500 gold? Or were we limited to finding only one egg?

Lol I thought the easter egg's included unbreakble debris like that lampost in the city map that wouldn't go down after you rolled over it,or the boat's that wouldn't break,but instead didn't act like an obstacle   :mellow:
