it really makes it impossible to get some ace badges and I got way too many games in some crappy Tier 1 and 2 tanks to get the badge and still haven't: http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/635320-who-the-hell-is-getting-those-strv-m38-ace-badges-900-dmg-is-not-enough/

You don't get badges for PVE, thus why you see so many alt accounts with 1300 average XP on their tier 1 and 2, and no badge on it. But yeah, it's still included in the "99%" calculations. Thus making it rather hard to get ace on low tiers. A Facebook page I follow has a contest for tier 1 ace badges that has been going on for weeks now. Still no winners.

new acc. have some kind of protection against games vs veteran players, to keep them entertained if not enough non vet acc. are available one side will be generated with WG-bots to be faught aka PvE.

the problem though is that htese bots are so dumb you will quite often see 15kill games with 5k+ dmg... thus its impossible to generate ACE medals as those stats are counted towards the overall needed XP for it but at the same time bot games are not granting any medals at all.

Actually no... I'm not even sure they are protected anymore. As if you play your tier 1 to 3 now, about 25 of the 30 players have 1K games or less. Before the system protected anyone with less then 2500 games playing tier 1 to 3 from the likes of "us". And you did only see about 2 on each team with 2K or less. But not anymore. As when I trained my T49 crew here last week. I more or less got only 0K players playing my low tier lights.

 

The PVE mode only gives you XP & credit rewards for your first 10 games, or after you pass your 10th battle, inc random. What ever comes first. PVE is only for tier 1 to 2, and is not a 15 vs 15. It's a 7 vs 7. And you can have more then one human player on your team, and it's Mines only. The AI do half the damage and have 2x reload time vs a normal tank. Thus it's easy for most to kill 100% of the enemy team solo if they are alone with 6 bots on their team. Thus as you said.. the XP they get counts for the 99% to get ace. And as new accounts get the Tetrarch for free for 5 battles. And every alt account do that via PVE. Ace on that is equally hard in randoms now. As most have 1100 XP on average for those 5 rental battles via PVE mode.

You can play it now even, but it don't reward any XP or credits for you. Just select "proving ground" from the mode select and pick a tier 1 or 2. Most use it to test mods on patch day along with the tutorial.

This has been going on for like a year now and WG still hasn't fixed it, and they are 100% aware of this issue.

 

 

 

It can only mean they are on a tunnel vision developement cycle that does not include minor issues anymore, all available funds need to be channeled into generating more funds as long as it's profitable.

 

Once past this stage servers will shut down to make way for their replacement project.

 

 

 

So sorry, no more tier 1 aces unless you literally pull raisienai with all targets inside your view range at all time.

5k damage on tier 1/2? If you call the bits dumb, I'm not sure what to call you.

They may have changed it since I did a, admittedly small, test with a newbie account. What I saw, using a tier II tank, was that about 80% of the games were newbie (less than 2,500 battles) only and the rest were a mix. I also believe that's it based on battle tier not tank tier.

What really sucks are all those games I've played in crappy tanks without getting one (so the info was much appreaciated): T1 Cunningham: 100 games (ok, that one at least doesn't suck), Kolohousenka 149 games (the pain, the PAIN), Strv fm/21 54 games (almost as bad as the Koloh, same level of pain), Strv m/38 115 games (just love it knowing how much a M2 Light would be better in every situation)

Same here. Got to do it as fast you can when a new line is released or you can just forget about it until they fix it.

Not that I'm going to those tiers to get aces anyway, but I can accept that for those that are 'completionists', this is incredibly lazy by WG. How hard is it to fix a problem like this,  in more than 1 year? Do they not know about it ?

CS got notified along the previous thread on this issue and I believe it was said that it would be reported to the devs, so I guess it's just a matter of Soon™.
