Good thing is it's automated, but bad thing is there is no award for defending team :(

I hope I will get a chance to see one in enemy team :D  If I do, I'll do my best to destroy it!  :Smile_blinky:

won't this event have the effect that everyone choose a light/medium or a fast td when they go to battle? to destroy the wargaming tank! the heavys won't be able to get to the mentioned wg tank because they are too slow. won't this effect in an lack of heavys/artys in battles between 19th and 23rd? :)

No, you will get loads of arties refusing to shoot at anything but the Wargaming tank on the enemy team because he could appear during their reload time, thus losing the game while you are getting shelled by enemy team

Exactly, WG tank on ennemy often results in a loss due to people focussing in getting that kill instead of playing smart. Prime example was 2 100% 13/90 syiciding at 1 wg tank trying to steal off the last 2% HP he had and both dying by ennemy fiee in the process. The one that got the kill left game with the comment:
i dont care about the loss, i get gold.

Thank you, making it automated is a great improvement. I saw one HUD member once mostly by accident, but I never really looked out for them even when I had heard of the event. Now there is a nice chance to get the gold without even looking. :)

As for changed behavior, I doubt that a significant percentage of players will change their playstyle even when in a battle where a HUD member appears: They would have to know of the event and look out if there is a target. On the other hand side, players who actively look out for HUD members are likely to be silent when they spot them so as to increase their chance to get the kill while the rest of the team plays normally. And of course, the fact that you can get the gold without ever having paid attention means less change, too.

I really like the idea of this competition.

If I ever get a gold WG tank on my team no way am I taking advantage of the distraction and capping the other base though, I'd hate to deny another player the chance of getting that 500g for thier kill.

Maybe there could be a little reward to the team that helps keep the WG tank alive eg 35g  each enough to buy  a cheap emblem or camo for a low tier tank?
