Second Historical Screenshot Competition

Attack Screenshot Competition: Deadline 0900 GMT Wednesday 11th December

 

This time we're actually stepping away from fighters and doing something for you bomber, ground attack and maritime strike guys!

 

 

Very many thanks to all of the community members who have made suggestions for more Historical Board competitions. All of these ideas are being talked through; following the last decal competition it has been decided to run another screenshot competition as something a bit more inclusive for more participants, before we then go to something more difficult for those with a lot of time to go for the big prizes!

 

The rules for this competition are similar to our first Historical Screenshot competition; whilst you still have to try to capture the action and excitement of the game, you now have the additional constraint of keeping things as visually realistic as possible within the following guidelines:

 

 

- There will be one category for each of the five main in game nations. Again, each participant will be allowed to submit up to TWO screenshots for each of the five nations. However, one of these screenshots must be a 'raw' game screenshot whilst the second is allowed to use post screenshot filters, image editing and external software. The themes:

 

 

- Britain: 'RAF Bomber Command'

 

- Germany 'Stuka Attack'

 

- Soviet Union 'Tank Busters'

 

- United States 'Attacking Enemy Shipping'

 

- Japan 'Airfield Surprise Attack'

 

 

- To reiterate, there will be two categories: War Thunder Screenshots and Modified Screenshots. The first category must come directly from the game, the second category allows you to use software, editing effects and external images to modify or enhance your screenshot. A winner will be selected for each ace in both categories, giving a total of ten separate GE prizes.

 

 

- We fully appreciate that it is currently not possible to stage a 100% accurate depiction of combat encounters within these themes using War Thunder. However, the idea is to try your best to illustrate each scenario as accurately as possible in your screenshot. We don't expect you to go out and fully research a historical action, but preference will be given to those screenshots which depict a believable encounter. For example, showing a Lancaster carrying out a night straegic bombing raid will be far more suitable than showing a Lancaster fighting over a Pacific Island map against USAF jets.

 

 

- Simply post your entries on this thread. The winners will be announced on 11th December and each will be rewarded with 1000 Golden Eagles.

 

 

- If you have any further questions or require any clarification, post here and these guidelines will be expanded on to cover any queries.

 

 

- Best of luck!

Hello guys!

    Right; screenshots don't have to be staged; if you can get a good one from a random encounter, then go for it! From experience from the last competition, some people just found it easier to control all of the variables themselves, considering the extra constraints placed by the screenshot needing to go for historical accuracy. As for quality of picture, just the best you can. There's no need to go for top settings but it might make it look a bit prettier. I'll try to answer any more questions as they arrive.

So i have a question, in previous contests i have been allowed a resolution of 3200x900 (screenshot of the week). Will this resolution for the unedited picture be allowed? (i use two screens for this resolution.)

I'm sure you know a lot more about the technical implications than I do; are there any potential problems with you submitting screenshots using this resolution? Will people with only one screen still be able to view it normally?

There are no problems that i currently know of, i did win that other screenshot competition (and obviously was allowed) so im guessing there wont be. Even people with small resolution screens would be able to see it as it would most likely just shrink the image to fit the space. It will just simply be a widescreen picture.
