EDIT: To clarify, NA and EU for sure. If you're SEA and would like to enter, please do as well and I'll try my best to get in touch with you CMs for prizing. No promises though.

 

Worth a try guys since he will contact the CMs on our server also and its a reasonably decent ship for a fun contest =)

 

Also here is the full text.

 

 

Alright. Let's have some fun. 'Marbleheads Will Roll' All Day Tomorrow. (self.WorldOfWarships)

submitted 12 hours ago* by also_robots

Okay folks, For the next 24 hours, (7pm PST Saturday comments will close), let's test everyone's musical creativity. Comment on this thread and replace a word in a song with a Warship (like Dirty Diana, Benson Caught Stealing, etc.) and you'll win a Marblehead.

Most upvoted selection will win a Tirpitz. Post your suggestions out to Twitter using #WarshipASong and another winner who posts will be randomly selected to win a Tirpitz. READY. SET. GO.

EDIT: To clarify, NA and EU for sure. If you're SEA and would like to enter, please do as well and I'll try my best to get in touch with you CMs for prizing. No promises though.

Also, if you're going to create a new account specifically to comment on this thread, you better make your lyrics really good.

 

Looks like 12 hrs left from now.

Conan-sama is the CM for ASIA

 

It's nice to see the NA CMs reaching out to ASIA and trying to include us in some their giveaways.

I thought Gunlion was a good but ever since he and KMaus were sent to the Siberian gulags, the NA forums have come a long way under Nyx and also_robots

Uh, 'wins a Marblehead' or 'will have a chance to win a Marblehead'? Last I saw there were over 200 entries and it's hard to believe that WG would give away that many premiums, unless they don't mind seeing swarms of Marbleheads in battle.

Every legit entry wins one. NA and EU have been giving away tons of Marbleheads. Time is now up for the contest.

 

Was the wording they used confusing?

 

"Comment on this thread and replace a word in a song with a Warship (like Dirty Diana, Benson Caught Stealing, etc.) and you'll win a Marblehead."

why there's not enough love for ASIAN server? in this past few days, they are giving away lots tirpitz and other ship on EU and NA server but no a single tirpitz on ASIAN server. :sceptic:

During PAXPrime, Nyx gave out 2406 Marbleheads through the forums alone (ie. not including those handed out at the actual event) so I don't think another 700 or so should be a problem for them :teethhappy:

No way it's that easy. Have you received anything yet?

Give also_robots time he has over 500 competition entries to process =P

 

Then for SEA he has to get in contact with our CM team and get it organised.

I'm not creative for this so I just copied a song which just so happened to have a warship name already. Would've used MJ's Dirty Diana if they didn't mention it.

 

Heh, first thing that came to mind for me was "Iowa" by Slipknot.

Here is an update. Looks like its all done now he will try contact the SEA community team to organise prize distribution to people who entered from here.

 

Well whether we do get the Marblehead or not, you have to give credit to also_robots for his efforts in helping all three regions and not just NA.

That's what worries me. Just hope that such lyrics still count.

Yeah also_robots is a super cool guy. Dont forget to add your username and server to the entry you made in that original thread so they know who to give the Marblehead to.

Updates Updates Updates Working on getting all of the Marblehead stuff taken care of right now. If you went back and put you in game name in the thread (and are in NA), you should have your Marblehead now! I sent off the Marblehead EU codes to their CM, so if you're EU, you should have them in the next 48 hours. Reaching out to SEA tomorrow!

Diana contest I'm going to try to get up tonight. Will add details shortly.

Thanks for being so patient! Had to go over to IGN this morning to do a

so I was out most of the day, so I'm ordering pizza, throwing on Doctor Who, and continuing to get prizing stuff done for you all night long!

 

Fingers crossed he manages to get in touch with our community team tomorrow! Are they all still in Tokyo? (lucky guys!)
