Nice & simple - can anyone explain to me how the T92 got a Confederate Badge & I didn't?

Same amount of shots fired, same amount of hits/pens.

I damaged 10 vehicles, he damaged 8.

Am I missing something?

Depends on who killed the vehicles. You killed 5 of them yourself. They have to be killed by other team members, not you.

There is one info that is currently not shown on any of the medals that was always explained before, inc on that one. I suspect that rule is still in effect. As in if two or more players meet the requirements for a medal. It's goes to the one with most XP. And he got 6 more then you.

 

And ofc you hit 10, but killed 5.

That rule is what happens if they both damaged the same number that were killed by others, and both qualify, otherwise the one with the most qualifying targets wins it.

You guys are gonna love this then, try explain this result. Confederate, cause more damage or critical hits, than any other player. Ok so, any other player by definition being ANY other player, in other words, no other player has caused more damage or critical hits

 

 

 

And yet... 2 players?? WHAAAAAAAAAAAAA?!!!!!

Seen it several times, although the screenshot doesn't show how many vehicles WolframAssassin damaged.

Given the number of kills, my guess is nine in total.

I've always thought is was a bit strange that a kill didn't count toward the Confederate award.

Had many games where I had made critical hits to to 7 or 8 tanks but since I eventually killed some of them, no shiny button for me.

It doesn't quite make sense but with WG, it doesn't have to.

My guess is that Confederate was cooked up as a sort of a "consolation prize" for those games where you shoot up a bunch of tanks but someone else snags all the kills right in front of you and that if you got the kills yourself, kills in and of itself is already "reward" enough.

Stunned allies? Maybe you don't get it then.... Just like you don't get certain medals if you do team damage.

​It's a preferable consolation when you end up losing but gets the experience of a winner. Good tactic if you happen to be in a fast firing light, I've been told. :bajan:
