The question has to be asked - is there anyone influential player left out there, hiding? That's up to you, the WoT Blitz community, to decide. In memory of Edurace, I've decided to open this year's Most Influential Player 2017 thread myself. I'm genuinely interested to see if anyone has made their mark on our collective psyche as players have in the past!

As with the competitions, there are some rules you need to follow when voting:

1. You CANNOT vote for yourself.
2. You may vote for a maximum of TEN players in total.
3. No more than TWO of these may be from your own clan.
4. Votes without a reason will NOT be counted.

Please follow the voting template below to make my job much easier when determining the result:

Player A
Player B
Player C
Player J

Reason for A
Reason for B
Reason for C
Reason for J

No numbers, no letters - just ten names and then ten reasons please!

Voting will be open from tonight until the New Year officially begins in Scotland (00:00 Server time, 1st January 2018) - so you have plenty of time to make your mark if you want to get in the results list! I will be keeping a check on the thread 


If anyone would like to make a banner for this year's competition then please let me know in game - I'll pick the best and put it at the top of the thread 

As a final note, I want to stay true to the original spirit of this event - so if there is anything you think I have missed out then please do get in touch and let me know.

Get voting - and spread the word! Let's make this the biggest and best opinion poll yet!

Martin Dogger - Genuinely one of the nicest people out there and a great ambassador for the game.

sk8xtrm - As above

evertonfc1878 - My most regular toon mate and our clan Yoda

cyborg422 - Clan lead and top bloke 

mtaylor8212 - I could pick a lot from Empros but spent a lot of time with him and he’s a great lad!

MajorBear - Dads another top clan and while I could pick a few of them, he recently helped organise a clan war so he gets the nod.

thebirdistheword - Sardonic wit and the best profile pic (except for the Nyan Hetzer whoever has that!) but I agree with him a lot.

IrmaBecx - Poetry and wisdom

Nikoliki12 - Wonderful support on the premium buyback campaign 

warren5 - Love his artwork

Cancracker - because he is the only player who managed to have an -ism named after him.




Mcfloren - because he managed to show just how unfunny and stupid trolling can be and hence this thread will be ignored by most.

Who perhaps should be watched with a disclaimer. I am sure we would all fully max out our tanks, shoot prammo and have access to all the tanks if we didn't have to worry about the cost. Not knocking the guy or what he does but its useful to put his videos into some sort of context.

Not in any particular order besides "ladies first"

Mrs. Zoschoen - amazing platoon mate. Laughs and fun time are guaranteed. True reminder that this is a game and it is supposed to bring fun in our lives and not frustration and anger. Thank you.

Amaunet - amazing person, good player, irreplaceable hostess of ICE. Thank you.

Martin Dogger - great YouTuber with detailed and very useful information in his videos. Great clan leader, player, toonmate and person. Thank you for having me in EMRS.

Sk8xtrm - great YouTuber with detailed and very useful information in his videos. Very good player, toonmate and person. Thank you for the great conversations.

Meadsy69 - great YouTuber with detailed and very useful information in his videos. Very good player, toonmate and person. Dont be flattered - i still hate you because of your M41 Bulldog review. My wife still looks at me the wrong way because of that purchase. :)

TangoAlpha1 - good player and active forumer. Thank you for the "prem tanks buyback" initiative.

The whole LGN team - very good players. Thank you for winning the World championship on behalf of EU server.

Mishkamapk - very good player, great platoonmate and person. Thank you for showing the ropes to a 10k batles and 45% wr noob, inspiring the will to learn the game and making me the player i am today.

Minitelrose - very good player and active forumer. Thank you for your detailed and easy to comprehend guides.

P.S.: i would love to mention more players from the EMRS clan because they are all amazing people and very good players and they influenced me in one way or another but rules are rules. Thank you guys. You are amazing.

P.P.S.: might sound cheese to many but that's the truth on my side. Keep doing what you doing guys.

 I do know that the way i express myself to some, if not most, people sound a bit too...aggressive? salty? rude?... but this is the way i speak and the way my thought train rolls...so...yeah...i'm not trying to insult anyone or pick up any fights.

Indeed the whole Legion team - for delivering thrills and excitments but also for brining the WoTB community together; coordinate the beta testing for the new maps for example. Well done guys !


Amaunet85 - For organizing countdowns and other events.


MartinDogger - Because his vids always stand out in educative value and teach you something useful.about the game, tanks or mechanics.


Sk8xtrm - When I got into a temper tamprum after a bad series or games; I always remind myself of how friendly and polite skate remains under all circumstances. Definetely vote for the tanker gentleman of the year if that award would exist.


Cancracker - because he is our MM prophet and resident soothsayer


Dassem - for creating the asshat of the week series; but I am sure there is enough content out there to create a daily series :--)


SockRobber - for creating our preferred stats site. Please don't quit otherwise we won't know how bad we are playing.


Minitelrose - for his incredibly well researched guides and analysis of munitions etc; and the amazing thing is he creates all this content on an old teletext terminal with a v23 connection..


And I am sure I forgot many others.

Amaunet : she worked really really hard to bring us as a group out of the forums and into the game

Unkindest : he was actively trying to get. us news from the Russian server as well as the devs.

Sk8xtrm: He is the first Youtuber that felt like a proper Youtuber to me, the others i didn't checkout or felt they were just propaganda channels, if the voting is for 2017 then sk8 is my top vote

Gentlefun gets my vote for his super videos but also for being one of the most polite and fun players in the game. Tooning with him reminded me why I played the game in the first place.

Sk8xtrm for his brilliance in bringing us information in his own, humorous way and always keeping it real in his videos. 3 on videos on spare parts alone and always remembering his player base.

Bushka for being the biggest celebrity we have in Blitz. I probably play more variety of tanks after watching his videos and learning new approaches.

Amaunet85 - great representative of the blitz community and does a LOT to represent us.

Unkindest - probably the most enjoyable streams and a great early source of info from the devs for us English speakers.

Meadys69 - great ace videos and a growing youtuber going from strength to strength.

Jylpah - all his in depth research and for being a top all round bloke

I_slapped_a_pet_badger - just simply for making the funniest and most nsfw blitz videos bar none.

Irmabecx - for his awesome in depth forum guides

Cancracker - for making me laugh at his crackerjack MM conspiracy theories

Thanks. You know me very well.

Read my guides there

I want just that, and replay files.

Anyone can access and max out any tech tree tank FOR FREE and also fire prammo for free... what costs?
