Vader, I thought of you....

The enemy heavy fighter skimmed just meters above the ground, tilting its nose up in preparation to drop its explosive payload on our ground forces nestled at the western edge of the arctic region. The pilot was oblivious as I swooped in from behind, letting loose with a staccato burst from my 7.7 and 20mm machine guns. Instead of climbing, the enemy pilot gambled on trying to lose me in the terrain, diving low and navigating through a crevasse of winding ice. As I followed, snow behind me kicked up as an enemy fighter started firing at my rear; bullets perforated the sides of my fuselage, threatening to rupture my fuel tank, but I was undeterred going in for the kill on that HF! The heavy fighter and I turned an easy corner and my incendiary rounds blew out his tail, sending him crashing into the water. But the enemy fighter was still on my six...



Pilots, in many of our contests we give you the chance to flex your artistic muscles, but for this contest we want to see your writing chops! In 500 words or less, we want you to describe your best moment in World of Warplanes: tell us about that one hectic dogfight, the time you pulled off a tricky maneuver, or that lucky break that scored your team a victory! Whatever your favorite, most memorable moment is that makes you excited just recalling it, that's what we want to read about! You may write it as a descriptive short story (as above), as a military report--think of a real-life pilot giving a post-battle appraisal of what happened!--or any other type of creative writing, so long as it's within the 500-word limit. Post your entries directly as replies in this thread so your fellow Pilots can enjoy reading them as well!



The deadline for this contest is next Monday, February 17, at 12:00 PM (noon) Pacific Time! Entries will be judged based on creativity, clarity, and as this is a writing contest we WILL be taking proper spelling and grammar into account! The prizes for the top three most well-crafted stories will be:



1st place: 5,000 gold

2nd place: 2,500 gold

3rd place: 1,000 gold



Get to punching those keys, Pilots!

I wish it was a poetry contest.

O fellow clanmate Gundy
This is my apology to thee
for constantly crashing my plane
into your levels one, two, and three.

I swear it's never on purpose
like you must always suspect
I just have no grace for dogfighting
and abhor turning our planes into wrecks.

But you know, if I must tell the truth
I often snigger and twitch
and throw my head roaring back laughing
when you scream "YOUsonovabiiiiiitch!"

The battle started.

I got rammed.

The end.

If you had 4 more syllables on that second line, you'd have a haiku, bro.
