Custom Clan Camouflage/Skin

What comes to mind when you think about your Clan?  Whether it's lollipops, conquest, or honor, use your plane as your canvas and create a custom camouflage paint (or skin) that shows off what your Clan's truly about.

Earn some gold by creating the best custom Clan camouflage in the world!

 

Everyone in WGA-A is sweet, which reminds me of candy and lollipops.  Since World of Warplanes has an (XF5U) Pancake, I decided to make it into a breakfast pancake by placing candy emblems on it.

 

How to enter

In this topic:

-Design a camouflage/skin based on your clan (can be hand-drawn or digitally created. Can be any plane.)

-Include a short description about how your Clan inspired your camouflage/skin. (Added update)

-Post your Clan tag/name.

-Post which player in your clan did the artwork.

 

Contest Rules

-Contest closes at 1200 PT on May 27, 2015.

-Clans may submit multiple entries, but only one entry per Clan will be eligible for prizes.

-The image requirements are as follows: format —JPEG, PNG, or GIF; size — up to 700 KB.

-The image must comply with the Game Rules and Forum Rules.

-Entries will be judged on creativity, quality, and adherence to the contest's theme.  This will be determined by WGA staff.

-Entries for this contest can be placed in either this contest thread or the corresponding one in the other supported languages or for World of Tanks. They are all part of the same contest.

 

Prizes (to Clan Treasury)

-1st Place: 10,000 Gold

-2nd Place: 8,000 Gold

-3rd/4th Place: 6,000 Gold

-5th-8th Place: 4,000 Gold

 

Tank/Plane Reward:

As an additional bonus, whichever artist created the camouflage for the 1st place entry will receive your choice of a World of Tanks Tier 8 Non-Rare Premium Tank (with a garage slot) OR a World of Warplanes Tier 7 Premium Plane (with a hangar slot).

Edit: I'm sorry for the way this post was previously worded - I'm having some major issues getting over the Warplanes stream from the RU region and carried some of the bad feelings from that into this post.

 

I realize that clans are cross-game. Events like this are generally run cross-game as a result, but when you do run these events like this, I feel it is important to carefully word the contest announcement to show that you actually care about the Warplanes community.

 

Simply changing a picture from a tank to a plane and leaving the text as if you're posting on the Tanks forum can really feel like the community team doesn't actually care about the Warplanes community. You left words like 'tank' and 'this contest thread or the corresponding one in the other supported languages or for World of Warplanes.' This shows that the team members responsible for the contest did not give our (warplanes) community the same level of consideration that they gave the Tanks community - this obviously is going to contribute to the feeling of Warplanes being second class. I sincerely hope that is not how things are actually going on this end. I know it is on the RU end.

 

Perhaps to more clearly show Wargaming's appreciation for the Warplanes community these events could be run in tandem, rather than cross-game. Basically, make a contest for tanks, and another one for warplanes. Clans could win twice, yes - but that would probably not happen. Either way, it's all about the art, right? Good art should win the contest, and how can you compare tank art to plane art? They're both so different. :)

 

 

Cheers!
Glenn

Wait....since we don't yet have Clan Wars enabled in WoWP....exactly WHERE does this prize gold go???  We don't HAVE Clan Treasuries......I know...."soon", right??  Piss off.

Not only is this a joke, but it is a joke in poor taste that basically kicks the entire WoWP community right square in the nads....

Come on Glenn, we have all done this, I don't think a rushed copy-paste equates to not being cared about.  There is a LOT of assumptions being made there.  Think about it this way though, maybe they are rushed because they are scrambling to implement Clan Wars in 1.8 on first of May.  I'd rather assume the best, not the worst.

 

Lets make this a Happy Monday.

There is a clan treasury, never tried to use it though.  Keep in mind that since we have common clans and the treasury works in tanks it should work for us as well.

 

edit: LOL I had to come back and edit spelling on my rushed post

War, we do have clan treasuries already. As an officer in TFE it shows me the clan treasury and how to allocate gold to our members. I think it may only be viewable by COs and XOs, but not sure.

We don't happen to be a multi-million dollar company with a bad reputation for customer service either. They should be taking extra care to ensure that we know they care about our community if they actually do.

I don't think what will help the community at this moment is another art and crafts project.  :sceptic:   At least give us something like weekly team scrimmages with some gold prizes for winners.  That would be a step in the right direction.  :medal:

I apologize for having the wrong vehicles for their respective forums.  I was coordinating the translation of one post into 3 languages and 2 products, and missed the important details for the overall status.  This is something that cannot happen again, and will not.

 

Having separate contests for World of Tanks and World of Warplanes is a good idea, and is what I originally planned.  Unfortunately, some of the logistics for the Warplanes contest (judging and entry requirements, time required) was a bit more complex than I expected because it involves video/replays, and it wasn't just an art contest.  Clans would be eligible to win both contests if there are concurrent and different ones for World of Tanks and World of Warplanes.

Clans are unified between World of Tanks and World of Warplanes. The Clan Commander, Executive Officer, and Quartermaster can allocate gold from the Clan Treasury.

Thanks for the clarification and apology vegan, it really goes a long way in showing us that the NA office still cares about us!

I recently joined TFE (The Fighting Eagles), which takes its name from the The 334th Fighter Squadron, which was comprised of American volunteers who served in Great Britain's Royal Air Force, protecting Britain from attack while Britain's own pilots engaged the enemy. They originally flew the British Supermarine Spitfire, but later flew the P-51, which is the aircraft I have chosen to modify.

 

To best represent the Fighting Eagles, I have skinned a P-51D with:

 

  • flat grey paint scheme to better contrast the other additions
  • eagle wings (wing tops)
  • eagle head on the fuselage (both sides)
  • eagle tail feathers (top & bottom)
  • out-stretched eagle talons on under-body (to strike fear into our enemies below)
  • 2 eagles fighting on the tail

 

I have also chosen to honour Desert_Vixen, our Commander who has taken a leave of absence for medical reasons, and who we all wish a speedy recovery. I have selected the motto, "Soar above the storms" based on the factoid that while other birds hide during a storm, the eagle supposedly uses the updraft to soar above it.

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you enjoy!
