@The_EURL_Guy Thanks for running this collab, folks! First time I'm interested in participating in something like this

 

I have a couple of questions, if you don't mind:

  1. Am I right in understanding that the subject can be anything, during any time period, fiction or history, as long as the basic theme is 'Victory at Sea'?
  2. Are we limited to a prose essay / story, or can we explore other literary options, like poetry?
  3. Is each player limited to a single submission?

Cheers and thanks in advance!

It's not clear to me: can I win anything related to WoWs?

 

Well, the game that you can win is about naval battles, which are kinda strongly related to WoWs ;)

 

But we do not have in game prizes for this one.

1. Yes, as long as it uses the "Victory at Sea" theme, you can go wild.

2. We are looking for a short story here, but I would also accept poetry.

3. No, but you can only win once.

There was a listed NA stream last night on the Twitch schedule, but the listing disappeared when the time came around. I'm thinking they may have rescheduled at the last minute or something...

GMs? Mods? Any info? I don't know if it's

ok to @ to @MrConway

 

Yes it is OK! :) 

 

It seems we had a bit of an internal miscommunication, as the stream on Friday where the winners were meant to be announced was moved to Thursday.

 

I'll get back to you, but likely we will announce them on the portal tomorrow.

 

My apologies.

Damn it, I thought I had a good story :Smile_sad: I'm a sad panda :Smile_sad:

 

Same! Was really proud of my entry. Still, it's up to the personal tastes of the judges, and we can't change that. Well done everyone.

@NobleSauvage I am not sure

I already own some VaS products. I wonder if Warlord would accept to send me three fleet sets instead of starter+two sets if I paid for the difference in cost ? Probably not ; prizes are prizes, but it won't hurt to ask :cap_yes:

I'm definitely getting the Kriegsmarine fleet. Not sure if I'll go for the UK or Japan set as the second choice

I liked the look of the UK and Japanese sets myself! Will be interesting to see if we get more VaS collabs with WoWs in future ;)

Thanks TheWarJaC, I loved writing it and doing the research behind it...

Congratulations to the winners! Is there a spot where we could read the other stories? Would be nice.

I'll second that. Would be lovely to expand the feedback threads, if possible, to read the other submissions.

Now if that isn't a strong argument for some Greek content in WoWS, I don't know what is.
