Hi guys and gals!

 

I know it is early, but I love Christmas, so in light of other player’s generosity in the past (like ID_100), I am contemplating handing out a couple of gifts in December. Also inspired by one of QB’s videos where his gf (wife?) rigged one of his tanks’ loadouts to 100% HE, an idea formed for a fun competition: HE Heaven or Hell. :-) Don't know if something like this has been done before, and as stated, the competition would run in December, but I would like to hear your thoughts on the idea & format beforehand.

 

My idea is:
Loadout: Full HE
Restrictions: A player may only enter with one (1) Tier-To-Be-Determined tank (I am considering limiting it to only MT-class; no superheavies with HE derp guns & tier restriction to make it more accessible to players who have not reached T9-10 yet, but I leave that up to you ;-) )
Winners*: 1 prize for most damage dealt in a single game, and 1 more prize for a contestant chosen randomly (so 2 prizes in total to give away).
Prize: Any Tier 2-5 regular tech tree premium tank OR 14 days premium time OR 1500 gold (winners choice).

 

*Dunno if it is doable, but am also considering adding a third prize for most modules damaged / destroyed & crew injured / killed in a single game. That is mentioned somewhere in the after battle stats right? (Yes I know: n00b! :-p )

 

What do you guys think? Since I want to make it a fun competition for YOU, you get to have your say on it, so please use the voting buttons to do so. Even if you think it's lame. ;-) And if you have any suggestions, please feel free to post them!

 

- Dutch

Nice idea! Hope in no restriction to class for my KV-2. Otherwise M4 and Pz4H would do the job! :)

Nice idea, but I think it would be more fun if we had tanks that normally don't fire HE, I mean sure as much as I love all the tier 5 HE derps (not the Sherman III), my Sherman Jumbo Derp and so on they wouldn't really be that spectacular to watch, they would just do what they always do. If someone used a tank and a gun that ain't exactly designed for HE derping and still got great results, that would be fun and interesting, at least to me, imagine a T-34 with the 57mm going full HE and making it work! :)

Love the idea but I agree that it should be tanks without a regular derp.

 

Perhaps a caliber restriction would do the trick?

Hahaha, yeah KV-2 did come to mind when I added that part. ;)

Hmmm, would restricting it further to using stock gun help? Or would adding an excluded-from-competition list be needed? If the latter, then I would need you guys' input, since I am not too familiar with all the obvious HE-derping tanks out there. :hiding:

hard to make a 57mm HE work. 50mm or even less are enought to block damage... probably you wouldn't even be able to damage an A-20! 

More likely, some high caliber cannons would do their job, but those come at higher tier...

You have to take into account HE mechanics. Limiting caliber would probably make the competition unplayable, just think that 75mm HE struggle to pen KV-1 armour.

Maybe a list of eligible T5-T6 guns or a maximum calibre rule.

Max 90 mm or something

Well i'd restrict it to two different types. There's the "~105mm" aka ~400+ alpha derps of which there's a lot to choose from (wolverine, pzIV, m4, Stug, G1r etc...)
Then there's the big guns (O-I and KV-2)

I'd make first choice tier 5 restricted to keep it interesting and to keep everyone from using the murican tier 6 with the epic turret.


But certainly a fun idea for a competition :p

Great idea but if it's limited to anything above tier 5 it'll probably be full of Japanese heavies with a few KV-2 at tier 6.

A great idea if you restrict it to a single tier and ban people from using derp-guns :) 

If the gun used uses HE as a standard ammo, it shouldn't pass.

Stock guns would be overkill, but I'd then use some russian tank with a large caliber gun :P

Simply exclude all 105mm and larger caliber guns, that should cover all problematic derps and semi-derps (like russian 122mm guns).

Good idea, i love derps. Some rules are necessary to consider so to make the whole thing balanced. I would suggest 2 or 3 classes, not too many to keep it simple, one of them would surely have to be the 'Unlimited' class, everything allowed (apart from HESH maybe?), and maybe the reward would be a highlight in the movie made from the competition material (replays), not gold or stuff, because not everyone has  a T10? Only award the lower classes... Also the choice of map is quite important, lights would dominate on open maps like steppes and malinovka, heavies would be good on kharkov and himmelsdorf... Give it some thought and i think we can have a nice and fun contest.

y'know, the KV-2 technically doesn't have HE as standard......
