Almost four years ago, I was probing the forums at 2AM, when this popped up.

 

Spoiler

 

I went down to it right away then I sent it. According to the done piece's metadata, I finished it in 34 minutes.

 

What caught me by surprise was, I indeed sent it in first, and that got me a good chunk of gold. Probably the only time I've won any contests outright during my tenure in WG's crazy world.

 

I wonder if it can still be done now without the context of those times...a lot of stuff in there has already been phased out and/or done with already...



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

Planes was barely six months old then...

I won gold with Halloween Event back 2014, with this (drawing or a skin of plane qualify for the event):

There was a lot of events that was Creative in nature back in the old days.  I won enough event gold back then to get me 6 months free premium and still had left over for other things.

Warships still runs these, but once they began to allow napkin drawings, MS Paint doodles, or Lego construction and the like while awarding wins to obvious ''rather marginal'' entries participation dropped off significantly.

That would look awesome on the bigger wings of the IL series GA.

that was cool...

if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.
