Just as a little pilot to test the population out there, i thought i'd run a small competition for you all (was originally for supertesters only, but i thought it would be worth opening up to you all!)

 

The competition is now closed.

 

The winners are as follows:

1st: Novaror (4 kills, 2963xp) - Shimakaze

2nd: Briscolone_01 (4 kills, 2112xp) - Minekaze

3rd: Nagine (4 kills, 1916xp) - Fujin

4th: Kooluch (4 kills, 1639xp) - Minekaze

5th: Cosmonautilus (3 kills, 2363xp) - Kagero

 

Over the next 11 days you are to head out in any ship above tier 5, and score as many kills on enemy ships without being spotted!

There are some requirements however, these are as follows:

 

  • The ship you are using MUST be at least Tier 5 or above. And not an aircraft carrier.
  • The commander you use for the ship MUST have an active situational awareness level 1 captain skill.
  • You must be spotted by the enemy at least once during the whole battle - this is to prove the situational awareness skill is active.
  • Only kills you score while not being spotted (at the point of the enemies death) by any enemy ship will count towards your total.
  • Kills which are achieved after your death will all count towards this total.

 

To enter, you need to post a image of the team results screen, the in-game replay of the battle (be it the original file, or a version uploaded to youtube), as well as state the number of kills you achieved during the game while not being spotted.

 

Click HERE to find out how to record replays of your battles. To send the original file in with your entry, please upload it via either googledrive, mediafire, or any other free file hosting website and post a link to the download location.

 

The prizes will be as follows:

1st - 1000 gold

2nd - 500 gold

3rd - 500 gold

4th - 500 gold

5th - 500 gold

 

If prize winning entries have the same number of kills, positions will be placed in order of base experience earned during the battle.

 

 

You have until 18:00GMT on Friday 13th November to submit your entries (in this thread please!).

 

Depending on the success/ popularity of this competition, i will try to keep competitions running throughout each month for people to head towards. And hopefully, if there's enough interest, i'll be able to increase the prize pool with the support of WG.

 

Good luck and get shooting!

 

(Please note: These prizes are being hosted solely by myself and not WG! I'll do my best to sort out the winners by the end of the sunday, but i can't promise anything - might take an extra week)

I guarantee you the winner will be an Izokaze or a Minekaze !

 

EDIT: I have had too little coffee today, and my braincells are failing me.

My applause for your initiative and showing WG how it should be done :honoring:  Will try to participate .

Just for the sake of clarity I think you should add info how equal number of kills will be dealt (is the higher damage will take the upper hand or perhaps base experience).

 apologies, equal kills will be dealt with by base experience :)

 

Will add it to the OP tonight when I can get to a computer

Wow this competition will be awesome! I'm really happy to see more and more events like this for players. Only recently discovered this and tried the "raining shells" competition from Ph3lan, it really adds to the game and trying to complete requirements for these competitions is fun. Hoping there will be many more to come.

 

Now I just need to figure out how to record matches :teethhappy: 

I read somewhere about changing some lines in a code, but i'm not too keen on doing that

sorry! Forgot to explain how to do that too >.< You do indeed need to edit your preferences file, however it's very quick and simple to do, and the replay files don't take up much room on your hard drive, I think they're in terms of 100's of kb, rather than mb in size :) will link you to the official guide to it in ~ 3 hours

Just updated the OP, if you could upload the file to google drive (share with link only - then share the link!), or another file hosting website such as mediafire etc. that would be really helpful :D Thanks!

Yes, you must not be spotted by ships OR planes while making the kills.

Well... I tried to be extra sneaky today but unfortunately I managed only 2 kills (there was an enemy lemming train that went the other way around). I had been detected though, but only afterwards. Thus those would have been legit but not nearly enough to be considered in the contest (I guess). So I'll try again the next days.

 

I really like such contests. I usually followed the reddit challenges for Kerbal Space Program, but in most cases I wasn't skilled enough to do them myself. But if it was easy I probably wouldn't bother ;).

4 kills, all undetected.

You need to post the team result screen, not the general one.

 

The same goes for you too kenjiro_

Is there a way to get that screen now?

 

I don't think so unfortunately :/ They're only stored until the next time you log off.
