Have to say this medal has become much more rare, for me at least.  Not that I got them so often, but playing German heavies they weren't that uncommon....these days however... *sigh*

Always look at the after battle report to see how I did and the rest,...and there are often medals given but this one....not so often any more..

SO perhaps increase exp given to 2000 ? ;)

-1 Because WG knows that it is nearly impossible to get it. And still they reward it like crap.

During the weekend I only got 1 with the At-2, and i was being shot by a Pz I. C., all other tanks either switched to He or GAOLD and totally raped that "invulnerable" tank.

Yeah, gold ammo is soooo common that yesterday I received 34 hits in my newly acquired Black Prince, with 7500 potential damage (which is 5 times its HP!) before being overrun. People can't drive their tanks and blame everything on gold ammo...

Good luck getting a "Steel wall" with all the gold ammo flying around.

The only chance to get it is probably to use the Tier 2/3 German premium tanks, in higher tiers everyone packs at least a few gold shells to do damage when they should not.
You might get lucky in a match where no one carries any, but those are the minority now.

I honestly can't remember the last time I got steel wall to be honest. I get sniper/confederate/topgun pretty regularly but steel wall, not so much any more.

yes steel wall this week!

I do agree with you guys that it's rather difficult to get but let's at least try.
I will do my best to receive it too  :Smile_Default:  We will have other specials as well.

Strangely enough I get them quite regularly regardless of gold ammo being ingame for credits now. Depends on the type of vehicle driven obviously however I even got some on my ARL 44 and that is not really a known vehicle to be able to take a lot of punishment. It all comes down to how bad is the enemies aim and if they use gold rounds or not and how do you angle your vehicle.

SuperPershing for instance is one of those vehicles you can get this medal pretty often with.

Hello there Macee
I wouldn't say its nearly impossible to get the steel wall medal I would say its quite possible I got 3 of them last week in one night. However, I am pretty much like Homer_J in his quote, I never get em when they count  :Smile_amazed:

same here for many things, not just this medal. I mean there was the end of year contest and only a few days before it started I had my 3030 exp on KV-5 which for the contest would have been fabulous but when the contest started the highest I could get was only 2673 and it's the same here probably.

Got one in my British Matilda this weekend in the 1 game I played with it and one in my M36 Jackson. Got hit 20 times by 2 AT-2 td's at point blank range of about 7 to 8 meters. Killed them both with 2 or 3 shots throught the drivers visor.

Not so difficult with T29/32/34. Front turrent armor 279+ and many players keeps shooting it then you hide your hull. I even got 2 cool-headed medals on it.

Wonder if its related in any way to the newly added British rolling bunkers/TD's.
