Hi,

 

can I ask you why rewards for Design a Patch Competition were changed?

Earlier the rewards were: Ship, port slot, captain, doubloons and signals.

Now the rewards are: Ship, port slot, captain and signals.

 

Where are the doubloons? Was it too generous and WG changed it's mind?

Strange, I have never sawn the image with the dubloons before, only your second picture...

On Polish, Spanish nad Italian website you can find it even now. Maybe they forgot to change it.

Yup, me too. The amount of doubloons though is huge, 5th place is high enough to buy a T8 premium in addition to the Hood, and have some left over.

Just checked the Polish site. The image is there, with the doubloons. Weird.

I guess that is the case, because the prices were rather over the top for a minor sidecontest if you think about it.

Just translate the dubloons in real money via the shopprices.

1 place €100

2. ~€85

3. + 4. ~€70

5. ~ €50

 

That would be already really generous for a small contest like this if you would only count the dubloons.

Then the ships and other stuff comes on top....

 

Still a mess that they actualy made and posted the other picture.....

Hello,

 

This was a mistake - the older infographics showed the total doubloon value of the prizes, but in a way that was rather confusing (as can be seen here) - we have replaced it with a newer one not showing this to make it clearer (the one without doubloons), but unfortunately we did not change it in PL, IT and ES articles and we did not notice the error until today. The articles have been corrected now.

 

Sorry for the misunderstanding this error caused.

 

 

In any case, do not forget to go and vote for the patch designs that were a product of this contest!
