Captains!

 

With Update 0.5.5, WG has introduced some of the most popular reticle variations into the client, but they're not stopping there. They want every player to be able to choose the reticle he is most comfortable with. That's why they are starting a reticles creating contest in which the players can select the reticles they would like to see in the game!

The contest will have two stages:

 

 

Stage one will be held on the game forums for each region (RU, EU, NA, Asia). Authors can submit their submissions until 9 May 23:59 UTC. Voting ends on 16 May 23:59 UTC. There will be a separate poll for each region.

 

How to participate?

 

Reticle mod authors can post their work in this forum topic.

Please create a separate reply for each reticle submission. Please use this format for your replies:

  1. Nickname of the author
  2. Reticle name
  3. Screenshot of the reticle under a spoiler
  4. Download link for the reticle
  5. Technical requirements for the rear-sight leaf:

 

File format: PNG-24

Files size not bigger than: 50 Kbyte

Width no more than: 1700px

Height no more than: 800px

File size must be an even number (1689x799 is not a valid entry, however 1688x798 is)

 

Only the author of the reticle can post a reply to participate in the contest! The submission must be the original work of the author!

 

One author can post several reticles, but a separate message must be created for each submission.

 

By posting their reticle mods to participate in the contest, authors grant full rights to Wargaming to use their work in the game client.

 

What are the selection criteria?

The selection criteria will be the number of likes the submissions receive. To vote for the reticle you liked, simply press the “Like This” button in the lower right corner of the author’s message. The 5 reticles with the most votes will then go on to stage two.

 

Please note that until the end of the submission period, you will be only able to see your own submissions in this topic. We will open the topic for voting after submissions are closed.

 

 The 20 regionally selected winners (5 from each region) will be posted on our portal. Players will be able to vote for their favourite reticle. Voting will take place in all regions (RU, EU, NA, Asia). The 5 reticles with the most votes will be introduced to the client, and will become available for use. Stage II starts on 19 May and global voting end on 25 May 23:59 UTC.

 

Prizes

Regional winners (Top 5 per region):  7,500 doubloons and Special commemorative flag

Global winners (Top 5 worldwide): Premium ship of their choice from our Premium Shop, in-game offers and partner programs and maybe something extra! J
WG will also distribute 1 honourable mention prize, which include 500 doubloons and a set of economic flags, for every 10 valid submissions.

 

Contest results will be posted on 27 May!

 

Post your entries in the submission thread.

You should use the new files, I think. First time I'm modding games..

I looked at the flash files and the reticles are in a new "crosshairs" file instead of the old "crosshair_screen" file to fit all the new different reticles in the game.

I somehow got a reticle ready for that size but I'm no modder and not familiar with how WoWs files are arranged.

Which file would I need to edit?

Guys, you just need to design it, not actually make a working mod out of it. Just as long as it fits the submission requirement.

 

 

File format: PNG-24

Files size not bigger than: 50 Kbyte

Width no more than: 1700px

Height no more than: 800px

Am I an idiot if I read it as 'Submissions end on 16th' rather than voting?

 I believe I am.

Going to weep and cry now.

*pat pat*

 

There, there.

Don't cry. There will be more competitions in the future.

If you've already made a reticle, why not make a mod out of it?

Since it's a global contest, extension is unlikely. It'd have to extend on all all regions and decided by HQ.
