An easter egg in this context is a message, image, or feature hidden in a video game or movie.  It references something else such as another movie, game, character, idea, etc.

I agree, I even brought the idea of an Easter contest last year, because of the reasons you mention here, I’m not bringing any new ideas to wargaming. Also, quite late for an Easter contest. Easter started and ended last April.

I'm completely mind blown. So WG wants suggestions on how to celebrate a holiday they completely missed? I'd say skip it and concentrate on new content. I don't understand why this is even in question....

Feels like we got "lost in translation" on this one. Some people think this is an Easter egg hunt, and some think we are trying to find "Easter Eggs" and if you don't understand the distinction you probably shouldn't ask or talk or be working on this project. From the producer side the actual idea is for players to give concept ideas for new "Easter Eggs" to be hidden in the game for other players to find, a fun way to get the players involved.

For my submission: Of course we need to take to some of the "crew" from the recent video and have them at a party on the beach somewhere or the wave off gal at the end of one of the current runways.

Question. Since we're able to submit more than one design, can all of them be in one post or do they have to be posted individually one by one?

Are we looking for Easter Eggs too or just designing Easter Eggs, or both.

Designing Easter Eggs. We're supposed to design a new Easter Egg for one specific map we pick. It can be for any map you choose to use. Within those who have submitted, the design with the most votes will be added to the map the submitter picked for their design.

Since I don't have any higher tier ships (new-ish player here), I can't access the higher tier maps, really.  Is there a way to do so without having the ships, just taking a free cam and investigating the maps?

For the maps I can access, it's difficult to explore the "nooks and crannies" of the maps during the heat of combat.  Again, any way to access and explore the maps with a free cam but _not_ during battle?

Maybe look at replays of other players or community contributors on Youtube?

Guys n Gals, these Easter Eggs are just an image or animation to go onto a map. The instructions for this contest are clear. If in doubt please re-read the News Release.

I got a submission in & I sure hope it gets chosen. I hope WG will make the winning submissions be shown on all the Servers not just the player Account server where the submission originated.

Incredibly confusing, shows and increasing lack of communication to the player base with this one...

Guys, this is not the Easter holiday. An "Easter Egg" in the gaming community is something inside a game referencing other media works or even historical events. It is something that normally would not be inside the game but it gives a clear message about their origin.

Examples I can give is the "No BB" signal on the east side of the North map, or the Fritz X bomb modelled on battleship Roma.

Hell, there is a group in the lookout for some Cap's statues, distributed in a bunch of maps:

I tried to submit a 2nd design but i guess there is a limitation on size of the project/suggestion - doh- Oh Well - I guess I'm a gig pig now - lolz (were only talking a few megs here)

I didn't know that the contest was including different regions altogether. I thought each region was holding its individual easter egg contest for their own servers.

USAPatriotGamer's link works to vote. I found the link on the News story on WOWs did not allow me to vote. Thanks, Chief Petty Officer!
