Greetings earthmen.

 

I have an idea for a new award for random battles.
It could be called  -Team Champion - or similar name and be for tanks at Tier 5 and over.

The idea is that to get the award the tank has to:

1. Cause damage more than hit points of own vehicle.
AND
2. Spot enemy tanks so that more than the hit points of own vehicle are scored.
AND
3. Use armour/damage recieved more than hit points of own vehicle.

Example.

KV-1 tank in random battle;
Damage to enemy tanks 780
Damage caused by spotting enemy vehicles 695
Damage rec'd 350 + Armour damage rec'd 400

Award received!

OK - now start posting why it's a bad idea.......

All in all, it's among the better awards I've seen proposed imo. The combination at least helps avoid farming it easy & while it would indeed favour a certain class of vehicles (armored tanks/TD's) it's not uncommon for awards to favour certain classes/styles (Steel Wall / Tank Sniper / Patrol Duty / etc). Maybe make it more like a ribbon, like Fire for Effect, feels like it's a bit too easy for a good player to accumulate plenty of these else.

Would certainly be a nice award to see & at least if you see this one, you know that the person who drives this tank gets into battle & not snipe from afar, like some do.

Note, sniping tanks also has it's value & has the Tank Sniper award for it.

Yes that's the idea. Anyone getting this has had a good all-round performance and it rewards positive attacking play rather than camping... :medal:

It's good and bad. Good because as pointed out, it does encourage active play, but bad because you just know it's going to be ruined by idiots focusing solely on trying to get this award, e.g. player using KV-1 has scored direct/assist damage then just tries some idle angling to get the blocking score and throws the game because he refuses to shoot back at the enemy heavy steamrolling at the end. Sounds cynical I know but come on, this is random battles we're talking about. It'll be ruined almost immediately.
