Hi all 

 

I'm sure you've had a battles where you've had a good input and received a notification to upload your replay for a chance to win 2500 gold just like this

 

 

 

But has anyone ever actually won it, is it possible to win it, who is even viewing these replays to decide who wins it and how can they possibly know a replay that was deemed good enough to participate in the chance to win the gold from any other replay, especially when replays are being uploaded a zillion a day. Is it just a bit of a troll message or is there any actual chance of winning gold?

You will get gold if your replay will be choosen to 'replay of the week' on youtube channel. Chances for this are… hmmm... quite low.

Who won it? Basically, anyone on the EU run best replays of the week. You have to mark it as a contest replay when you upload it, and it will remain hidden when you do. So it's not like a normal woteplay.com upload. So they check the replays that are marked if you will. But they show like 3 replays a month. So it's not that many that have won yet I suspect vs how many that have uploaded. 

 

RU has a skin and a badge if you win. Not sure if EU has that yet. "the skin with the film reel roll on it".

yes. but BRW isnt active for a long tim

i even ask support about it and the answer was 

''you are right. BRW is out for a long time. if you think it should be

active again, post your idea on Wot suggestion thread on EU forum''

 

thread that non wg-relevant person reads.

Ahhhh gotcha. I was wondering what that BRW link was at the side of replays. But your'e saying even if it was some amazingly outstanding 14 kill epico, it would still be a total waste of time since nobody actually wins or checks? Ok, good to know anyway, had just seen a few too many to ignore and wondered.

Cool your ti*ties bro I just asked if there is actually ever a winner to these competition or if it's a load of bs. I didn't ask was that average pile of cra* good enough to win, the notification just drew my attention to it again since they pop up a lot, like those annoying discounts but obviously this is a chance of gold for nothing so much more appealing

I've gotten that notification like 4 times now, last one today for this one : http://wotreplays.eu...etto_m35_mod_46

But I've never gotten picked, despite one of the games was a Pool's and Kolobanov's combo. And to be honest, we're seen some very average games in the past from that show, so I got no idea what their criteria is.

That one? Should be "available" on EU as well, although it must be ridiculously rare, never seen one. (unhistorical stuff is enabled for me, so I'm 100% sure I never saw one)

Had it a few times but thought it was like those coupons they hand out for Epic Medals occasionally. Essentially a worthless exercise.

I won it,  2,5k gold https://www.youtube....?v=-l8KqxJnPkc  it takes a month to take the gold, but BRW are unavailable since the hd maps. i still post a few replays here and there tho just in case

 

Edit: Typo and also this http://wotreplays.eu...aldweed-t-34-3   the game that won me the gold, note the times of downloas and how you have to specify with timestamps  what happened in the game so you can be eligible

Didn't notice that yet. But those matches where all stars align tend to be rather boring anyway...

Lol, nice one, and if nothing else he does say weed an awful lot during his commentary which brings me back to some holidays I had in Amsterdam with some mates a long time ago.... I thought I was buying a chocolate chip muffin but it wasn't, good times.

It gave me that message on a 900xp win in the AMX 30... No idea how any algorithm would think that's worth a prize...

lol, well that's obviously a broken game feature more than first thought clearly. I was thinking that 1500 base xp was some sort of trigger for it, I think those were the times I got those notifications

 

Edit- I want a tier4 french duck epic 900xp base battle too btw
