Meh, too bad it wasn't there yesterday...

I was playing Churchill I (to unlock Churchill Gun Carrier) and after ~30 games I earned 7 or 8 Sniper awards :) And a half million credits. You can't go wrong with Churchill - this thing is just so lethal :)

I don't think this bonus is working properly, I just did 900 dmg got sniper along with defender but only 788 xp on a church III, this just doesn't add up some how, if this score includes the 300 extra xp  it would mean that I only scored 488xp for 908 dmg, a 98 point defense award including 3 kills. this bonus doesn't seem to be working. let me know if Im wrong or if there is a problem with this.

Good luck guys and let me know how many sniper medals you managed to achieve! I will play some battles too shortly after 7pm.

For those who can't access the portal:

World of Tanks is ready to reward the greatest tankers, even during the week! We believe that the top sharp-shooters must constantly increase their in-game experience in order to master their skills on various vehicles. So, our Mid-Week Medal Hunt event will help you to achieve this mission. With each Sniper medal you obtain by getting at least 85% out of at least 10 shots fired that have a potential damage of 1,000 HP or more, you will not only receive the medal, you will also gain 300 additional experience!


From Wednesday 03rd April, 07:10 CEST (05:10 GMT) until Thursday 04th April, 07:00 CEST (05:00 GMT) the Medal Hunt is available for all our players!

There is no need to register for this event; the bonus experience will be added automatically by the system!
So, during this day – become a Battle Hero by showing us your “Sniper” skills, and gain extra experience as a reward.

Could you please answer my question, This bonus didn't start until at least 1.5 hrs after 05:00GMT, Im just curious as to why this happened. I don't care about the two sniper award bonus that I missed out on in this period, a simple acknowledgement that this issue did exist and that it wasn't just my imagination.
Thanks

And you need to make sure atleast 85% of the shots hit. And that you deal more potential damage than all others who might have fired just as accurately. And that you get more XP than all of those. So yeah it is in the bag every time right?

1000HP potential damage , you don't have to do any damage , just have the potential to do that damage.
plus do the 85% hits out of 10 shots min,
seen it awarded to a KV-1 for no damage.  :ohmy:

Got one bonus last night  with the Chaffee in another bad game.  Of course sniper more often goes to a tank shooting poiintblank rathe r than sniping from range.
