use the control key at the start of the match and right click the name.

if a drop down menu appears then it is human.

Normally there is 1 to 4 humans in a match depending on the queue

Am I really the only person who notices this? Ghost needs to clarify what to kill in order to "skywrite" from the proper names.

 

Enemies=red team=humans/bots

 

Yes, he needs to clarify since this is the first skywriting contest since intro of bots and some past contests have been a confused muddle of clarity but logically there's no difference.

Even though there are ways for us to check if the enemy is a bot or a human, once we take a screen shot, there is no way for WG to tell from the screen shot if it is a bot or human unless the investigated every name submitted.  I doubt they will be doing that.

yep, pretty much this^^  

 

If I knew I'd come away with something worthwhile for my efforts, even if not the top prize or prizes, it'd be worth my time.

On the other hand, I think you will be able to accumulate the letters you need easily without any additional effort.  The only effort for this contest is posting the screen shots.

 

The overall reason for these types of events is to drum up participation in-game and on the forums.

 

I would agree, there should be rewards for completion, there have been in the past.

Allow me to clarify my question...

 

 

Does the BONUS count if flying the German Spit.V DB605?

 

Thanks,

VA

 

Yes It does!

Bots names do count. If it were just human players, I think that would be very difficult.

The only negative is that many people will enter to "randomly" have a shot at winning this.  It is admirable for Ghost to do this but unfortunately the randomness of who wins it leaves more people jaded than thankful.  Also since they are "randomly" drawn in a back room....  It only leaves people to think they are more "hand picked" due to lack of winning, money paid in, or simply not someone that would post something like this......  Although I know Ghost would never do that....

You should be an automatic winner if you can spell SPITFIRE with a Spitfire in one battle's worth of kills!

In the past it's been whispered that previous winners are excluded as well, though WG has never confirmed nor denied...

The only "I" I've seen in the last half-dozen battles + has been on my own team. WG is not encouraging team killing now, is it?

 

All I have left to get is two 'I's... does this make me like Losttwo (eyes) ?

 

OMG !!!! Am I BLIIIIND !!!!!

Pilots,

Start your engines and search the skies, looking for enemies whose names begin with a letter in S-P-I-T-F-I-R-E


Beginning today, we want you to spell out the word SPITFIRE by shooting down Pilots whose names begin with each letter of that word!


TO ENTER:


Take screenshots of the battle results page with the names of players you've destroyed, and post them in ONE post.

 

Start Date: 3/07/2016 (Now)

 

End Date: 3/17/2016 @ 9:00am PT


RULES:

  • The word must be spelled with the first letters of players' names. (Numbers count as the first letter)
  • It can not be in a Training Room; it has to be a Random Battle.
  • The word must be spelled within the time frame of the contest--no screenshots before today, March 7th.
  • To enter, take screenshots of the battle results tab with the names of players you've destroyed, and post the screenshots together in one forum post.
  • One entry per person.

 

PRIZES:
We will randomly select FIVE (5) pilots who complete the task and award them with 2,000 gold + 3 days of premium Time!

 

BONUS: 

1,000 extra Gold to 2 players who Spell out "SPITFIRE" (Chosen at random, from the winners) in a spitfire

should I cover the names of the human players ? Or just post the original pictures ?

Please check my post- #36

If WG needs the original pictures please let me know, thanks

Oh boy, this is a game where one shoots the other. Showing a battle result in a contest is not naming and shaming.

If you need an 'R' shoot me down and post it, I don't mind.
