Hey Tankers,

This weekend (December 14th-16th) we will be running a "Hunt the Sheriff" Event where those with Sheriff accounts (WG employees and Community Contributors) will be out on the live server looking to give away 250 gold bounties to the players that manage to destroy us.  For a hunt this big, I'm going to need some volunteers to put a badge on and bring justice to the server.  I have some temporary Sheriff accounts being prepared to round out the posse. if you think you have what it takes to join respond to this post explaining why.

The schedule is as follows (times in CT):
 

The Schedule

Friday (12/14)

4PM - 7PM CT -- Freeplay

7PM - 10PM CT -- Tier 5/6

10PM Friday-6AM Saturday CT -- Freeplay

 

Saturday (12/15)

6AM - 9AM CT -- Tier 7/8

6PM - 9PM CT -- Tier 5/6

9PM12AM CT – Freeplay and End

 


We are especially looking to pack the queues during the times where specific tiers are listed, so please make sure you can make a few of those before applying.

Sheriff accounts are demo accounts with all tanks unlocked that give 250 gold to the player that destroys you.  Players do not get more than 250 gold for destroying more than one Sheriff in a match (sorry).  You are not allowed to share this account with anyone, any violations of the game rules on them will be taken very seriously (with the repercussions applied to your main account), and you are not allowed to coordinate with other players to help them earn your bounty unfairly.  Please do not be the person who spoils the fun event weekend, I will be on you like white on rice on a paper plate in a snowstorm.

UPDATE: We are no longer reviewing applications for Sheriff accounts, thank you all for your interest.  I am honestly overwhelmed by how many people wanted to participate and we will definitely look at expanding the amount of slots available for future events.  For this one, we were limited to about 45 spots and they filled up quickly.  Good luck and happy hunting!

Sign me up, i've been workin' like a dog to grind out some new tanks and i feel like it'd be quite nice to give back to all of those i farmed for damage, by giving them a chance to score some goooolllldddddddd *says this in gold members voice*. Not to mention i'm on a lot, since i have nothing to do on the weekends other than sit at home and stare at the computer screen. Real talk, it'd be nice to chip in on something like this to help the community.

 

Also, i love the major payne reference! <3

Sounds awesome, but pretty sure I'll have limited play time Friday and especially Saturday, so won't be applying for the posse.

I would be interested in this. I am an avid player and while I am not the best player, I do enjoy the game.  I would give players a fair chance because a) I am a normal player and b) I am on and play a ton of games usually.

Been watching these sheriffs from the sidelines for years, so I’d like to give it a shot myself. I’ve got no plans that weekend, so I should have plenty of time to play. I’ve been watching for a way to give back after being a lurker in the forums for quite a while now.

Hey Cabbage!  I have some free time this weekend and its always fun to see a sheriff in game so I'll gladly donate some time for a fun community event.

For qualifications, I've been around for ages and am aware of the rules and how important it is to strictly adhere to press accounts from having access to one during a silver league period.  I can be flexible on when you need me online, and I killed your leopard when you dove off the cliff at me the other night on el_haluf!  :D  Hit me up if needed!  Cheers!

I'd be willing to pitch in and run a sheriff account for some of the weekend. It sounds like fun.

I'd be willing to sign up for it.  I can make the Friday evening, Saturday most of the day and most times on Sunday.  I take a break on Sundays to watch my football team.  Other than that, would be willing to volunteer some time and help out with this event.

I've been around since 2011, debated with The Chieftain about buffs and nerfs, and would love the opportunity to help out by donating my time for a good cause =)

I'll be available all weekend long as the coffee is strong with this one.

Id like to take part Cabbage. I last did something like this for the final Corgi Fleet event just before NikoPower left and it was fun then. It would be fun to do a similar thing in tanks and give out some gold to people this holiday season. I can make all the time slots (except those that start at 6AM).

I'll be a 50% Sheriff! I'll be a one handed sheriff so I have to choose between using the gun or a billy club, and on most days it feels like I am using the billy club versus tanks. I have nothing but time, free time, on my hand.

I'd have to find some time in there to do my daily xmas loot missions on my main account - but after that I am free.

I would love to get in on this!  And I promise to die a lot to give out as much gold as possible :).

Would Love to do it if possible. MY PR isn't great but it is steadily improving and I like to play a lot of different styles and types. Late night Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are perfect and possibly other times as well, but late night, 10PM-6AM is great. Plus I am available almost any other time being disabled. I don't sleep much.
