Captains!

Captain Bad Advice needs your help! He has been playing rather well lately... A little too well. He came to us and wanted to know if we could ask the players what Bad Advice has he forgotten. At first we were afraid to give him those keys. As you've seen, he doesn't exactly know how to avoid beaching himself or slamming into his allies. The more we thought about it, maybe he is right. We looked into his account and saw his win rate was way too high. We wanna wreck it! This is where you come in. 

 

For this contest, we will be asking you to create a 6-8 panel cartoon illustrating your own personal Bad Advice using the Captain. Is there something you've done where you say, "I've done this too many times?" Have you maybe found yourself out alone in a battle only to turn into a flaming wreck on the ocean surface? Maybe Captain Bad Advice doesn't understand distance when firing torps and shells. Feel free to use those experiences to create your entry. Make sure to create it in a way that a player with little to no experience would be able to pick up and use in battle. 

 

Example: 

 

The WoWS Community team will go over the entries and choose the best ones. From there, we will send it up to the awesome folks who make our Captain Bad Advice shorts. They just might use one of your ideas in a future short. Remember, submitting an entry also waives your creative rights to your image. We will however make sure you get credit for your ideas should it be chosen to create a short. 

 

There of course are a few rules so here they are: 

 

Rules:

  • All players are welcome to join the contest, but each player can submit only one entry.
  • Please think of your fellow community members' bandwidth, Entries must be posted under a spoiler.
  • The creation must be designed exclusively for this contest.
  • Entries will be judged on creativity, quality, etc.
  • The image requirements are as follows: format — JPEG, PNG, or GIF
  • The image must comply with the moral, ethical, and legal standards, as well as with the Forum Rules. Wargaming gains exclusive rights to the contest image when you post it on the forum, as outlined in the “10. User Generated Content” section of the Terms of Service.

 

And now for the good part. THE PRIZES! This will also include something never before given away. :)

 

Top 5 entries: 

1 Premium Ship of your choice*

7 Days Premium time

10 Random Loot Boxes

 

5 Honorable Mentions: 

7 Days Premium Time

10 Random Loot Boxes

 

*Excluded Ships: Kitakami, Missouri, Iwaki Alpha, Arkansas Beta, Alabama, Gremmy, Nikolai, Dragon West, Dragon East, Katori, Flint

You don't even have to have amazing drawing skills. As long as we can tell what you are trying to get across, it's just as good. We are looking for your content and ideas.

Someone should make one about rushing the center passage on Twin Brothers, or about taking a battleship into the small center area in Shatter. I would do it myself, but I am short on time right now and have basically no artistic talent.

Yes.  
Or even better, someone could explain concave versus spearpoint.  Like in Starcraft 2.

Bab Advice #XX: "Dont choose only 1 attack direction"

Spoiler

 

The match begins and our Captain BA look at the team in the minimap and decides to go to 1 side of the map, soon all the team decides to go the same direction creating only 1 fleet:

Spoiler

 

Then the fleet starts to go south:

Spoiler

 

Fish tries to alert CaptBA that only that side is a bad choice but our dear capt doesn't care:

Spoiler

 

The enemy team (that decided to go both directions) begins to cap:

Spoiler

 

Fish alerts again....

Spoiler

 

But its too late since the allies are fighting a pincer attack:

Spoiler

 

Finally our Capt is resting on a nearby island after being defeated. The video finish when the base flag is captured (with a focus on the cap indicator :trollface:):
