The holiday season is behind us and the next one far away. Plenty of time to fill the gap with something else, so I'll give you another forum contest. Once again I will utilize the forums to try to make you help other users, so that you might win one of several nice prices graciously sponsored by Wargaming.

 

 

The prizes

1st Place: T-VII Blyskawica + Community Volunteer 1st Class FlagPCEE064_Flag_Volunteer_3.png

2nd Place: Tier VI Premium* + Community Volunteer 2nd Class FlagPCEE063_Flag_Volunteer_2.png

3rd Place: 30 days premium time + Community Volunteer 2nd Class FlagPCEE063_Flag_Volunteer_2.png

Any player with 5+ Best Answers: Community Volunteer 3rd Class FlagPCEE017_Flag_Volunteer.png

 

First class flags provide a 5 % Bonus to XP, Commander XP and Credits earned

Second class flags provide a 5 % XP and Commander XP bonus.

Third class flags are decorative.

* The ship will be chosen by WG depending on availability at the end of the contest

 

 

Contest runtime

The contest will run from February 3rd till May 2nd. That's a total runtime of three months. Plenty of time to qualify.

 

 

So what will you need to do to win?

If you want to participate you'll have to register yourself in this thread.

 

It doesn't matter if you register today or on the last day of the contest. The way I run this event will not favor those who register sooner then others.

We have two forum sections dedicated for players to ask questions and to recieve answers. Those two are Newcomer Questions and the Q&A Section. If you want to win, answer as many questions as possible in those two subforums with the best answer you can give.

So that you do not start spamming into old question just to get your post count up there are two limitation to make your post eligable to count towards winning.

1) The question must have been asked during the runtime of the event (February 3rd till May 2nd).

2) Your post needs to be marked as the best answer.

 

I am aware that this might seem to put the users who qualified for the Quality Poster Initiative at an advantage as they can simply select their own posts as the best answer. That's why I have to ask them not to participate. I can not force you to stay away but I would welcome it if you instead support the contest by regularly visiting the two subforums and selecting answers instead.

 

Some users might end up as a recommended user for the initiative by activly participating for this contest.

 

 

How are the winners selected?

After the contest expired I will start to go through those two subforums and start counting the qualifying best answer posts. That may take me a day or two, so please do not get unpatient. You will be able to do the same, so there is no way to manipulate this contest for me. The user with the most best answers in both forums combined will recieve the first place price. Second most will recieve second price. And so on, you get the drill. Additionally, every user with at least 5+ best answers who did not win one of the first three spots will still get a special reward.

 

 

Disclaimer

If someone tries to manipulate the contest, for example by attempting to bribe a QPI-Member or Wargaming employee, all persons involved will be disqualified.

Neither I nor Wargaming employees are applicable to win the prices and are excluded from participation.

All prices are sponsored by Wargaming.

As usual all Wargaming forum rules apply in regards to language, insults, and other limitations.

I register myself in this thread.

Not trying to derail, but Cornflakes, I think you win automatically due to the practical demonstration of how win rate reflects playing skill in your signature! :) )

That sounds like fun. :cap_win:

I want to participate too.

Sadly i won't have much chance because i can't write answers and check the forums all the time as I am a fulltime employee.

But I'll gladly take the consolation price. :cap_like:

There won't be enough players to create threads in Newcomers Section.

 

I guess i will participate too,  despite how unlikely writing 5 'best' answers is (does it count as being stubborn or overly optimistic?)

Great idea and kudos to you, OP, for running it. :Smile_great:

 

I'd like to register but feel with my level of knowledge of the game, the only question I could provide a reasonable answer for would be, "which ships are the baddies?" :Smile_child:

Wait a minute!

Do really only the two qouted forums count or can i score extrapoints for being german? :Smile_trollface:

https://forum.worldofwarships.eu/forum/633-neueinsteiger-fragen/

 

Sorry, but only the two quoted forums count. While I do speak german, I can't say the same for all the other languages available.

185 threads / questions in the past three months in the two qualifying forums. Let's hope that the amount of best answers will be equally high in three months.

I figured as much... :cap_fainting:

Just a friendly hint to make your openingpost 100% waterproff or more like impossible to misunderstand as you have been so throughout on other possible problems too.

Also looks like the secound price is the one i want most after the third :cap_haloween: (I Already have Blys, swim in credits, like the blue flag more and could use a free Tier VI ship)

So sign me up. I like helping people (that want to be helped)

First question: How do you make WG forum stop double posting? :Smile-_tongue:

 

 

Also, count me in, just realised those forums exist.

 

Btw, gg WG, a lot of help for new player for no cost. Do your job and make some proper tutorials.

Douse this mean a Quality poster is not allowed to participate...    :Smile_ohmy:

 

Good Idea by the way.. I like it. Lets help each other... 

That said i will try to take a closer look at these two sub threads and Promote some of the comments i think are worthy..

 

I will not be above getting PMs from people if you see a comment you think is worth a Recommendation.. if i agree i may well highlight it.

You are allowed to participate. I can't force you to stay away. (Though my first draft (not published) contained such a clause)

Recommendations are fine. Accepting rewards for marking a specific answer is not.

Thanks a lot for taking a closer look at those forums in the future. :cap_like:
