Hello all,

I bring to you a competition like no other!

This is a race from tier one to tier ten!

 

Participants will play normally from T1 to T10 on a line of their choice, and the person to play a battle in a top of the tree plane in the least number of battles wins.

 

Wait, whats that I hear? Cries of "how? I already have 1/all of the tier ten planes."

Well here's hard bit. You will need to create a new account if you want to take part. Your new account name should start with RtoX_ then a short tag to identify yourself. I recommend about 3-5 letters. (so for example, mine could be RtoX_gary or RtoX_niteg)

 

But otherwise the rules are simple: Use only what is provided with a new account. No bonus codes and no buying anything with real money.

That's it, everything else is up to you. You chose your line, if you use consumables, what you spend the starting gold on, ect. You just need to play one battle in a tier ten plane to be able to win.

 

The way the winner is decided is as follows: The time frame for this competition is five weeks. In that time, you need to have done one battle in a tier ten. If this takes you one day or twenty is irrelevant. At the end of the time, I will count up how many battles each player has done, and the player who has the least battles wins. Players who haven't done a T10 battle by then will not be considered for winner unless nobody reaches tier ten, then the required tier will be lowered to 9 or 8 or so on until a winner is found. In the unlikely event of a draw, the winner is the person with the most epic achievements. If there is still a draw, then the person with the highest win rate is the winner, and if that doesn't settle it then you would both deserve to win because that would be incredible.

 

The prize is 1000 gold or any tier three aircraft from the premium shop that has a personalized skin especially created by zen_monk_.

 

If you wish to take part, create your new account, but don't play a battle, and post your user name here.

 

The competition lasts from Monday May 18th to Sunday June 21st

 

Does any one have any questions?

Great idea :honoring::great::medal:

 

Only problem would be how to assure no buying or bonusing was done, but other than that - bravo!

I guess it would just have to honesty, but there is a set amount of gold and premium time you can get without missions and if someone mysteriously got more than that, then you would know if these rules had been violated.

 

I will be checking...

Of course, if the winner chooses some Tier III premium I might sweeten the prize to be personal :D

Great idea, mate! Awesome to see you contribute in this way, and I do hope you get some sort of endorsement from WG (looking at ya, blindfold). Personally I don't think it will take a whole month, people seem to have a lot more time to play now - I wonder how fast will it take for the first participant to make it to t10. I'll be following this one, it's intriguing. GLHF to everyone who participates :)

Agree! Great idea.

 

Re "endorsement": I've sent you, @blindfold, a rather long message a few days ago outlining (basically: asking for) WG-sponsored prizes for the official "All-round Aces" tournament.

Some/any feedback would be highly appreciated...

Fantastic Idea, but i just ordered a new bicycle which will arive this week.

So my plans for May are different. But good luck to everyone who participates!

What a brilliant idea. Speed gaming in an online air combat shooter.

I'm fairly certain I wouldn't be capable of getting from T1 to 10 in just a month but who knows, I might just have a go at this to see how far I get.

 

Would it be an idea maybe to create a clan and all these new accounts become part of it? Would that make monitoring easier?

Now that's a very good idea - plus it could potentially lead to both mutual cooperation, and internal strife ;) Seriously though, this does look like a good plan. Easier monitoring of stats and progress  there, gary, you should consider giving this a go. On the other hand it means spending gold to create a clan, but perhaps WG could lend a hand in this, refounding the clan commander?

Firstly: Quota etc.

 

That does sound like a very good idea. I've never been in a clan so I don't yet know how that would work, but it should be easy enough to find out. A reimbursement would be nice, but it seems unlikely. I'm not worried enough about the five currency denominations it would set me back by to pester WG for it.

Thanks again for the tip. I'll take anything that lets me sleep a bit longer in the morning.:)

Mate, if it's a tier I bicycle you can still participate...... :trollface:

 

@nitemare_gary: Where do we stand in relation to this ? Did anyone sign up ? Did you create a clan as suggested by Ziptop (brilliant idea, btw.) ? If yes: what's the name ?

Sadly I've been rather busy and haven't yet created the clan, but when I do (very soon) it will be called "Race_to_X" [RtoX]

I haven't received any notification that anyone has signed up yet, but if this is an inconvenient month for people then I can simply move this to next month.

 

As for the bicycle, there is actually a whole tech tree for them.

Tier 1... 

 

... to tier 10...

 

... and some premiums.

Noted. Once it's created I'll sign up, and so will others who expressed interest in this, I hope.

 

Suggestions (feel free to use, or just tell me to sod off): Create clan, promote the competition, make it mandatory to be member of [Rtox] in order to participate and move start-date until around middle of May.

Furthermore: Poke a German, Polish and French player to make entries in the various language-sections across the forum (if you don't know any with those nationalities here, just use Google translate and do it yourself) - basically something brief with a link to the rules+registration thread (this one...?).

 

Nice bicyles, btw. :)

 

 

Edit: Keep in mind there's an artificial limit for the total number of members of a clan (iirc it's 100 - it used to be, at least).

Not anymore. 100 used to be the limit long time ago, right now it's unlimited in WoWP (as opposed to WoWS, don't know about WoT).

Good Idea. I hadn't thought much about advertising, but I'll see what I can do.

I have a deadline for my work in about two weeks, but after that I should have some more time off. (you can guess where it'll go)

I will now start the competition in mid-late may, but expect the clan to be online in the next couple of days.
