Contest: Destruction Derby

Commanders!

The introduction of new physics in Update 8.0 made combat across the maps very intense, and brought a variety of gameplay previously unknown in World of Tanks. As a result, collisions and accidents with your metal machines are ... much more spectacular!

Thus, we have prepared this fun contest for you to show off the amount of destruction you can create at the controls of your tanks with your friends and clan members in training battles. The sky is the limit – use any map, climb the tallest hills and mountains, run at top speed, prepare mid-air collisions and gunfire!  Use your imagination, and remember that the more friends you bring, the more boom you’ll have!

Capture the moment and enter the contest! There are separate categories for YouTube and screenshot submissions, and you could win a ton of gold!

Winner Selection:

Winners will be chosen in a vote of the EU community team and will be determined by how many individual votes they accumulate after all the community team members have voted.

Each EU staff member will be able to cast 10 votes, but a contest entry can only be given one vote per EU staff member. This means that each EU staff member will be able to cast 5 individual votes for the image category out of the submissions gathered, and another 5 individual votes for the YouTube category out of the submissions gathered. Final placement and results will be determined by the entries that receive the largest number of votes from the EU community staff. In the event of a draw in the original voting, a tie-breaker vote will be held.

Good luck tank commanders! May the most destructive display of in-game physics win!
