Please answer the questions we are asking ALL THE TIME in these threads:

 

-> whats the date the winning replays were submitted, as its 2 week period, i for one don't have a clue whats going on 

-> how do we know the replays we sent were checked out and just not picked

-> do the replays stay in existing pool for next video or not

 

I submitted some replays a long time ago. On youtube channel someone mentioned Episode 6 was still from December or November replays? Now its February. I don't know if my replays were already removed from pool before Episode 7 or i just wasn't picked. What if i submit again, ofc if i knew it wasnt picked before i wont do it again like some monkey, as it clearly isnt weekly. 

 

Really this needs more info, why should i send my replays when i dont even know whats going on atm??!!

What i really don't understand is the reason why there are no specific rules on how to participate? Don't link me that useless video i watched it and it has nothing to do with it. What one would expect to find in the description or video itself is:

 

- Set of general rules so people don't feel its just some random-generic News feeder you guys post on your website to look "active":

Lets say now its 2 weeks till Episode 8 comes out.

1  - From the day that last Best Replay news were published, players can submit new replays into the pool for Episode 8. That gives everyone idk .. a week or so to publish, then its closed and reviewed by your team. 

2 - If your replay isn't in video, it means, it wasn't picked from that pool. 

3 - Pool is wiped and step 1 is issued again

4 optional - Every replay can be submitted only once or something

 

Is this really so hard? I needed exactly 3 minutes and 23 seconds to come up with it and write it down. Also not one moderator or community manager is regulary checking the "active" thread about this. At start all of you come in here and write "wooow!, GL!" and stuff like that. Then some of your forum guys are busy deleting threads and editing posts instead of maybe contacting Managers from time to time, to say that there are important questions in some threads.

This basicly.

I looked up "this week´s" replays, the newest one being from the 17th of January (The Defender, http://wotreplays.com/site/542683#self) and the oldest one being from last year (One of the snipers, http://wotreplays.ru/site/1710716).

The replays were even more than 2 weeks apart...

I like the contest, I really do, but this just looks like as if you picked random replays and put them into the video and name it "Replays of the (week)".

If you pay attention to the replays you can see the dates on the victoryscreens. For instance the 'replay of the week' was conducted 4.Jan 2014... so they are about a month behind from submission to release.

If this is true, they should rename the event to "Best Replays of the Week (With one month delay)". It would clear a lot of confusion.

You had to submit it with an EU account because wotreplays is an EU site. They tell you to put the server you play on in the description and I set NA not EU.

Could you add the youtube-link also to the news article, or atleast in forumpost, because some older mobile phones can't play it in browser...

Thanks!

The issue that we, the European Community team, aren't in charge of the videos. We monitor the thread, yes, but we do not select the videos. This is done by the video production crew in Minks. As such we can't give you the answers you seek as we don't have them. I'm going on weekend tomorrow but I'll speak with the managers when I get back and see if I can get the name of a person to contact so there can be some definitive answers.

If you send a replay to a category like for example steel wall yet it is very good, can they be picked as a best replay of the week? Or do the BRotW come only when sent specificly to BRotW?

OK, someone please tell me where I do have to go to participate in the Best Replays of Week Contest.

The links in the first post gives me an error 404 PAGE NOT FOUND.

Spoiler
 
Google also just gives out this website or this forum thread.
Do they even go on with this contest?

I just uploaded a replay to BRW for a "Top gun of the week". I thought it might even be good enough for a "best replay of the week" but when i tried to upload it for the second category, a message appeared- i already posted it to BRW and can't do it for the second category.
 
My question is: just in theory, if WG would see my replay and decide its better than just for "topgun of the week" would it be included as a "best replay of the week" instead, or can it be shown ONLY in the category i have sent it to?

Cheers.
