Hey guys,

I can confirm that there will be two new medals in 8.6 that you may or may not know about yet.

I wouldn't have believed these if it was still April...

Alaric Commemorative: 'Is given to player of winning team, who destroyed at least 2 enemy tanks and at least one monument'

        


Lumberjack Commemorative: 'Is given to player of winning team, who destroyed at least 3 enemy tanks and pulled down at least 30 trees'

        

What do you guys think about these new medals?

I'm not personally sure about adding medals that require people to do silly things like knocking down trees - what if an important player after killing 3 tanks then spends the rest of the game chopping down the forest?

Tears will follow.

QuickyBaby.

What is meant by destroying a monument?

I love the lumberjack one btw

edit, to all people saying that it will lead to less contribution to the team, you only get it when you win and kill some tanks

there should be a medal for players on the loosing team who has more xp gained than the top player on the winning side.

Pulling down trees is a bad idea, they should not support this kind of behaviour.

This feels more than a bit silly...

I want medals for performance not for larking about?

What next a Tony Hawks medal for killing a tank then Grinding or performing an Ollie?

As already mentioned - pointless. This will only promote medal farming, thus jerking around and not contributing to the team, which already is too much,

Hehe, I just hope there won't be noobs knocking down trees when in scout-ninja mode or TD-stealth mode.

Really not the direction I would like medals to be improved... I have a sense that the average redhat in his KV-1S wil start to look for trees to mow down instead of supporting the team after achieving his third kill - propably on a map like Sand River or El Failouf... Of course only those on my team...

Nah.... I wont be going for these medals. The reality role of WOT is fading and becoming more like a console game. We dont need silly gimmicks to keep us interested. If we wanted silly, we'd play GTA or similar genre.

Not really, they're Commemorative achievements and not Battle Hero medals or Epic Achievements..  It's not like you see people setting out to get "Lucky" "Spartan" or "Cool-Headed"

Think of the environment, and the poor men that that have to re-erect them ready to start the next game. Now that is noobish behaviour!

Don't be greedy guys. U don't want SimpleBob to have medals also. And that lumberjack is quite difficult to get, 3 kills OMG.

<p>It'll be fun to see in 8.6 matches that all 30 players are knocking down the trees in the first half of the match and when there're no trees left they start moaning :" Arghh!! Player X knocked down my tree...****ing 'tard!!!"
And when they get to Himmelsdorf they cry: "Damn, no medal for me this match :(("
Back to reality.Now, seriously, those medals are for real?...They're dumb...
