Pilots,

 

In this event we are looking for enemies whose names begin with a letter in H-E-L-L-D-I-V-E-R!


Beginning today (July 19th), we want you to spell out the word Helldiver by shooting down Pilots whose names begin with each letter of that word!
For example, you could spell "Helldiver" by destroying:

 

Hector1
Eddone (Both letter "E")
Leekslayer (Counts for the two "L")
Digger_one
Iggy_man

Victor

Richter_Belmont


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

 

RULES:
The word must be spelled with the first letters of players' names.
It can not be in a Training Room; it has to be a Random Battle.
You can use the same player for instances of the same letter.
The word must be spelled within the time frame of the contest--no screenshots before today, July 19th. Also, screens must be taken (and submitted) before July 31st, at 9 AM PST.


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 1,000 Gold!

 

DEADLINE:
July 31, at 9 AM PST

Why not forgo the whole contest and just randomly select 5 players and award them 1,000 gold?

This is the way we have commonly ran these. It gives more people who may not be able to play everyday a chance to win as well.

Ghost there was developer talk of an upcoming

US GA line, do you have any information if or 

when the helldiver will be one of these planes added?

no..it doesn't..it gives 5 RANDOM people that chance..ONLY 5. even if we complete the word..we still have to rely on blind luck to win. thats not really fair.

that is how WG runs many of its contest.

The people that achieve the goal are placed into a hat and randomly draw for a win.

If only 10 people spell the word then half of them will win.

There are different contests, art and skilled based

ones, ie videos and general contests like the one

here designed to allow as many as possible to

participate, not those willing to grind the longest.

I like both forms done on this forum and glad the

later is now infrequent.  I don't get how randomness 

in a contest is a topic for whinning.  There's as much

randomness in life as order :)

Do bots count?  Also what about underscores?  Example: _Energydudeman
