So I was wondering after a decent game where I got the High Caliber that why was it so hard in the beginning to get one. Now you seem to get them at least once in a while. And I started to think about what medals do you get early on. And what medals do you only get later.

 

I started as a complete noob because my friend asked me to. He bought me Cromwell B (because good tank). Well noob and cromB doesn´t go well together (also I suck at games generally). But I got like 5 scout medals anyway or something like that and nothing else really. Maybe some lucky ones but only due to luck. Other tanks I just can´t remember though I seem to have enjoyed a lot of time in tier 1. And apparantely I have got a Raider at one point. I do remeber the more recent one.

 

But anyway. During your wot-career. Have you got any epic early on and continue to have them later? Have you lost the ability to gain some after a lot of games (raider seems "impossible" ) ? I know it´s hard to ask well, but think of it this way: My gameplay changes and (hopefully) evolves, so the only medals I could get in the first 3k battles where like scout on Mittengard or Himmelsdorf. Maybe a lucky high caliber or one top gun. But now it is more likely to get a TGun sometimes or a HCaliber etc. First Kolobanovs was like after 5k battles or so but took 12k more to get another.

 

And does getting medals affect your gameplay? Do you throw away a sure win because a change to get Radley for example? Would be nice to remeber the win rate early and how did it correlate to medals but can´t.

 

Short: 1) Did you get medals early on and do you get the same still at same rate (ie I don´t get that many scouts these days)? 2) Do you let medals change your gameplay? 2b) Has it affected your win rate? 3) Are the medals in general as easy to get as before or easier/harder (patches)?

 

My short: 1) I did only got lucky scout´s early mostly. Later medals came if they came but earlier I just didn´t get top guns for example 2) Medals do not affect my gameplay apart from one early rush to get first spots if possible 2b) nope 3) Lehväslaiho for example is way easier and I would guess all the similar ones too.

Medals have been phucked up something rotten of late. I used to be a LT specialist and took pride in my collection of Pasucci medals for example.  I get them all the time now.

 

I don't really take notice within a game except if I think I'm close. i might try to do a bit more of what I need to do to get the shiny.

Yeah - some are complaining of lack of arty in the new patch but my LTs are seeing them all the time.

Re Medals I like Fire for Effect as it tells me I've contributed damage wise to the team effort ( Team even said with a straight face)

Medals mean nothing. They dont give you anything extra. I dont give a damn about them and never did. Same goes for gun marks.

In World of Warships if you acquire certain medals you get mountable, visual signal flags that serve as a single battle, nontimed personal reserve. A similar system can be implemented in World of Tanks, but there might be many "reasons" why that's impossible.

Yes, way to easy to get medals now, not saying that I have a lot of them but with the recent changes I dont really care about them anymore.

Why did they make this change? I understand that they had to tweak it a bit after the changes to light tanks and arty but why "nerf" them like this?

Pascucci's medal they reduced the difficulty of getting one from three SPG KIA to two. This was so the one above, for killing four could be reduced to three because of the new "Max 3 SPG" MM.   They'd have been better leaving it, even of the old four-kill medal became completely unavailable..

Well. I got my first Radley very early and have gotten some since. Bit the fact I got it with Matilda Bp and I was a complete tomato back then is what surprised me.

Medals are something that I don't actively go for. I just play normally and concentrate on other things than medal hunt.

Oh yeah... medals... not like anyone can see them in battle. The one I like most is kamikaze ... but that's just because it's fun to ram a higher tier tank to death :)
