Hyy! I think Sw0rd_F1sh should get a Lowe. Not only is he my friend, but he's a very skilled player. He knows how to play his tanks and he gets on with it pretty damn good. I win most of my platoons when I'm with him, he literally carries my [edited]and sometimes gives me the opportunity to get a top gun, and he always makes sure we get brothers in arms and on the rare occasion I manage to play like a pro, a crucial contribution medal.

 

So give the lowe to him! and Him alone! and if not him, Huwie. Because then I can blame Huwie if Sw0rd_F1sh doesn't get it :P

i would have another full box of nominees but I see it's closed (crying background choir) I still decide to hopelessly nominate nuclear_kid who has been my mate all this time. He is an amazing player and most of all, very funny. Without him I would still be a noob, at 12.000 yet he never gave me a lesson. He just let me died for a few thousand games a

while he was winning alone, and he just asked me every time why did you die again ? 

 

After a few thousand games, I started wondering why I was dying so often and so early. My (blitz-connected) life was never the same after that. Thanks to him and also he is a Russian from lituania, please help him stop playing mother Russia's tanks after his close to 50.000 games he barely played some British tanks for about just 500 games total. He just started playing Tiger, which tells me that a Löwe would turn him into no less than some sort of superhero in the form of a Löwe driver. Plus he would stop playing his IS6/defender which would help us all in the server.

I want just that, and replay files.

I will accept this self-nomination by merit of its' poetic and jestful content, but do note the whole point of the giveaway is to actually give the Löwe away.

 

Also; not saying my acceptance will impress the judges...

 

:)

 

Yes, got it!

but, in this case, would you really have preferred i did "outing" in the name of "a lucky tanker", forever know as "the pinky löve" commander...???

:teethhappy:

Really?

In a related enquiry, has anyone produced a 'Mr Löwe Löwe' matchplay video with Shaggy's Boombastic as the backing track? Because that would be flipping awesome.

I nominate VG's docandy, because he's a real doctor working at saving lives (I won't say which area he works in but it's very important) and he's an all round nice guy, great player, good egg and decent bloke who loves blitz. Not err the same blitz who is in VG, probably.

 

So apparently, this very short nomination, displaying all the abrupt effectiveness we have come to expect from Siko, seems to have captivated the imagination of the Judges.

 

Siko is the winner, meaning docandy gets the Lone Wolf Löwe, complete with Vertical stabiliser, as promised!

 

I want to thank everyone who contributed, and I think we are all winners here, because a Vanguard Löwe on the Green team is a real blessing, and you should at least strive to get to the point where a Vanguard Löwe on the Red team means free damage, so remember that when you get sniped through the commanders' hatch from 437 meters away by one. These coming weeks, that will likely be docandy testing the Heavy waters and practicing his extreme-range peekabooming.

 

Long Live Löwe!

Wow.......super impressed Irma......Doc is probably the nicest person I've met ingame and works all sort of lengthy hours in his highly specialised super important area of medicine. I know he's posting something himself so I'll stop there, but he is crazy about blitz (the player aswell ;)) and one of those players who platoons with all sorts of people from all sorts of clans.....so I think it's a nice award for all of us.

 

Irma, many thanks for putting this together....what a great idea and what a nice thing to do for the community by you and WG :)

Irma, many thanks for putting this together....what a great idea and what a nice thing to do for the community by you and WG :)

 

Siko, I can tell you I have already been in contact with said Blitz, and he assured me that the Judges had done the right thing. Several others have expressed their admiration already, and I of course contacted docandy to give him my sincerest congratulations!

 

I know the Lone Wolf Löwe is being delivered as we speak, it should arrive within 36 hours if everything goes well. And it will, I had MrConway standing by for days before we decided on the winner, and he sent the order yesterday, right before I posted the results.

 

So;

 

I want to say I am extremely pleased with how this turned out, and I would like to tell you why.

 

My objectives with the Löwe Your Neighbour giveaway were the following:

 

1. Get more Löwes in the game - that has happened.

2. Get more people talking about the Löwe and interested in the Löwe - that has happened.

3. Make one extremely deserving player really happy by giving him a Löwe - that will happen any minute now.

4. Show that Wargaming are serious about the Löwe, and they take an interest in fringe groups like the Löwe Appreciation Society. I think the fact that Wargaming gave us all a Löwe - with a Vertical stabiliser like I asked to counteract the new German TDs - shoes they do take an interest, and they listen to the players out there. At the very least they listen to me, and I listen to you all.

 

An unexpected bonus was a lot of people took the opportunity to express their Löwe and admiration for their in-game friends, to the point of adding their suggestions well after the contest was officially closed. I think that was probably the greatest thing about the res Löwe Extravaganza.

 

That was really all of it. I wanted to spread a little joy, and I had said if WG ever made me a Community Contributor, the very first thing I would do would be to ask If the Löwe Appreciation Society could have a free Löwe to give away, and as you can see that is precisely what happened.

 

And all and behold, Wargaming actually read my 3,5 page suggestion, and felt it made sense. Let me try to paraphrase Unkindests inimitable Hard-core Russo-Finnish Sisu Poetry:

 

Löwe wants to be Free

Löwe wants to be free to Kill again

 

And now Free Löwe is real

Löwe is Free to kill the Useless

 

 

 

Free Löwe is real, and I think Unkindest deserves a special mention, because I would have liked to see him get Free Löwe. Some others also deserve a special mention.

 

They are: 

 

Huwie,

Xenodium,

Phelan,

Bushka on Blitz

Mrpgilbert a.k.a Merpug

MeetThyDoom

Brinsigr

Martindogger, Amaunet85, Sk8xtrm and the EU Community Coordination team

 

...and of course Titus_Scato because Reasons.

 

So, thank you all, and remember:

 

Free Löwe is not an old Hippie fantasy, even though IrmaBecx obviously had Hippie parents.

 

Free Löwe is real.

 

And Free Löwe has a Vertical stabiliser.

 

Thank You, Wargaming®
