Captains!

Over the next two weeks, we are challenging you to create some awesome gifs, to show off how explosive, exciting and sometimes random this game can be!

We will be choosing the best Gifs at the end of the contest. If they are particularly excellent, they might be featured on our Facebook page with your player name credited.

 

The rules for this contest are as follows:

  • You need to create a GIF, upload it to http://giphy.com/ and link it in this thread  (1 GIF per player)
  • The GIF needs to be of your own World of Warships gameplay, or battle which you took part in
  • The GIF cannot be created from other players existing online video content
  • The GIF can be a maximum of 10 seconds long
  • The GIF needs to be linked in this thread by the 4th of February at the latest
  • You can use video editing software to add text or other items to your GIF
  • Anything added to the GIF needs to be non-offensive and allowed as per our forum rules
  • Mods are allowed
  • The winners will be chosen by MrConway, Ectar, Brynd and myself. The choice will be final and cannot be questioned.
  • By submitting a GIF to this contest, you give us permission to use this GIF in any way we choose.
  • All posts in this topic should be strictly on-topic, off-topic posts will be removed.

 

Please note: If you are challenged by the community on whether your submission was taken from an already existing online video, we will ask you to submit a replay and link for the respective battle. If you are unable to provide this, we will have to exclude your result.

 

Prizes:

 

1st place: Imperator Nikolai I

2nd place: Ishizuchi

3rd place: Aurora

4th place: Tachibana

 

Instructions on how to enable a replay can be found here: http://ow.ly/XjMUN
 

You can create the GIF with any means at your disposal. For anyone who has never done this and is unsure, we recommend checking out OBS (Open Broadcaster Software). It is a free software that will enable you to capture your gameplay from the client. You can find a basic quick start guide here.

The video can then be uploaded to Youtube and converted into a Gif with Giphy.com’s own GIF maker, or converted locally.

 

I am sure that there are many among you who know easier or better ways to do this and we do encourage you to share these methods here.

Here is an example taken from one of our official RNG compilations for World of Tanks:

Hm, I gotta say 10 seconds is quite the short timeframe, especially if it's going to be in slow-mo to add some epicness.

 

is it possible to change the submission after it has been submitted or switch it out for a different one?

 

EDIT: What about files in the .webm (gfycat) and .gifv format? Are those allowed as well?

The GIF doesn't have to be slow-mo and you can change your submission any time until the end of the contest.

You can use any format you like, but it has to be uploaded to http://giphy.com/.

When you're out of torpedoes, you become the torpedo.

Just some fun entry - ARP Myoko is a beast and nothing beats killing guys in a pink ship :P Too bad that old replays don't work, you really should get that replay stuff to work so we can capture epic moments later on even after client updates :sceptic:

I thought the low submission count was just everyone waiting until the last day but guess not. Grats Kluele, deleting cruisers looks as good as it feels. :great:
