Seen one not too long ago, so they are out there :) Good to see that you reverted to a gold reward again.

The contest will be running throughout two whole days from September 6th at 07:30 CEST (05:30 GMT) until September 8th 07:00 CEST (05:00 GMT).  That’s right – you can meet our Wargaming tanks in battle any time throughout the day and evening.

Never meet one, I quess mainly becouse I play earliest @ 21:00, normally from 23:00 (GMT+3) onwards.

Any hope these hunt us downs could be timed to late evenings also?

I know, WG workers have lives too. But I have idea:
Maby if WG could hire some players (not to any 600eff/44%WR) to play for them at late evenings with WG-provided account.
In return, players could be given some gold for their normal account.

Don't think I've ever seen one, but its still a nice thing for you guys to do. And you've made it even better by automating it, so people recieve their gold straight away and don't have to post screenshots, and making it easier to locate these tanks.

I still feel like it should be whoever deals the most damage to the tank that should get the gold though. You can deal 1300 damage to a Tiger, for a friendly T29 who sat there waiting to steal your kill and get the gold.

"Please be aware that there is no reward for defending the vehicle"

This can be a source of frustration, not only these tanks are very rare and you might choose the wrong side of the map or not have a good cannon to kill the HUD1 tank, now the chances to participate in the contest are reduced by 50% because you might be in the wrong team.

IMHO, the best way to make this contest is:
1. If the tank survives, and the team wins, the other 14 members could be rewarded with 50 gold or so each. (this will increase the prize to 700 gold but since it is distributed, it should not be a problem).
2. If the tank is killed and the enemy team wins, all 15 enemies are rewarded 50 gold each (this will increase the prize to 750 gold but since it is distributed, it should not be a problem).

The fact that the gold is distributed has some good sides and some bad.
Bad sides are: the prize is less significant for a tanker and the HUD1 tank helps his team mates get some "free" gold.
Good sides are: up to 15 players remember the battle and appreciate the contest, players don't sit and wait to be able to fire the last shot and get the kill, players play to win which is the essence of WoT, not just the killing of a certain tank.
Best thing for Wargaming is the more people have gold, the more people see it's advantages and the more they are inclined to buy more of it, which is why you are handing out free gift cards at games conventions and make the offers in the specials.

Please reconsider this contest, don't get me wrong, it is really nice you're holding it but, as it is now, it's against the main direction WoT is rewarding players for and the behaviors that WoT encourages from it's players.
WoT is not about waiting to get the last hit against a certain tank, it's about doing your best to achieve victory, this is why spotters are rewarded, why we have a confederate achievement and why there is a bonus for capping and winning. Kills are good but you don't need to chase them desperately, it's not Quake Arena.
If you really want to reward the kill shot, give 60 to the killer and 50 to the others but not more so that you do not encourage people to form a lemming train and wait after one another for 1 minute so they get the final shot against a tank.

We recently changed the rules of HuD so you can see us playing much often.
Hopefully this time we will finally meet :Smile_Default:

HUD should be part of random battle gameplay not only as event.

Nice improvement with instant rewarding but i would like to see a bit diff distribution of gold. "Only kill count" would promote fenomena known as kill stealing with really scarce user support as majority hates it. Divide the 500gold reward into 2 category: 300 for kill and 200 for most damage on target(so 500 if one person do it) and all will be pleased.

Idea of recruting players to join wg clan HUDx and play some dedicated roles(pick tier, nation or timeframe) in excange for gold is brilliant(flooodi) as it could evolve into birth of interlinked economy inside the game and as so could pull millions of people to hook in. That means a lot more servers and jobs and profit for WG but also for the users as WG could spill small part of it into the crowd and watch them fight for it. Or play for it. Or work for it. Or whatever you like to call it.

World as big as this one needs "Panem et circenses" all the time.
