These awards are highly prestiguous and only the best submissions can win each month. We've heard about all the common bugs and ideas so you'll need to come up with something unique and original to have a chance at winning!
Awards entry tips:
- Don't rush to submit the first thing you can think of. Chances are many others have submitted the same thing already.
- Take the time to make your submissions informative and detailed.
- Little ideas are often better than big ideas. They're also harder to think up.
- If reporting a bug, try to discover how or when it happens. Simply telling us a bug happened once is not useful. Screenshots or videos might be helpful to explain what you've found.
- If reporting a hacker or cheat program provide details and evidence. We can't do anything about problems that are only rumored to exist.
- Don't put all your hope in one idea. Stay creative and accept the fact that some of your ideas will be better than others.
- Submit entries because you want to help improve the game, not just because you want an award. There is lots of competition and no guarantee that you'll be chosen.
- Avoid submitting your award entry in an attached document unless necessary.
Commonly submitted Lightbulb ideas that should be avoided:
- Add a new award to the game.
- Replace missile shots with some other type of equipment.
- Make a major change that would alter the entire gameplay.
- Turn the bulletin board into a forum or add a live chat.
- Add a feature from an old cheat program.

- Add a screenshot section to the website.

- Allow players to earn double experience for special events.
Common entries for other awards:
- Reporting a way to play two tanks at once on the same or a different IP. This is not a bug and can't be stopped.
