Hi guys & gals, 


So as as per the title do you remember your first ever MOE ? I can’t remember the battle but it was in the vk30.02d, pre 88 buff so you had to use the 75 pea shooter, at the time my goal was to do my HP in damage and then post battle I seen this “mark of excellence”, since then I’ve tried to get at least a single MOE when grinding ( I’m sure lots of you have higher goals) 


ive never been able to sell the tank as I always remember that post battle screen , tell us about your first time

Not the very first, but first 3rd one I think I remember. It might have been IS3 or 416. Got them back to back. Were a struggle on is3, easy on 416. Harder it is the more of a price it feels.

I think my first MoE was in Matilda Black Prince. Before that battle result screen I didn't even know such things existed. 


Anyways, I haven't been much fussed about them. I have some tanks with 2 MoE but none that I would have actually "pushed" so to say, since I'm not good enough a player to get constant good results so more often it just builds up frustration.

Don't remember.  Didn't even know there was such a thing as an MOE until I saw the markings on my barrel.    I think it was my Toaster that got it first.  Not really sure though, it's not that big a deal to me.

First tank to get a mark? Sure I can remember that. Made it with the Grille. Played it lots (still do) and suddenly I got 3 rings on the barrel. Was mighty proud of it at the time. Since then, I try to get a mark on every arty level 5+ I use. Quite hard in some cases, but I'm getting there.

My first 1st and 2nd moe's were with Panzer IVH. Not in succession though, it was my first tier 5 that I kept quite some time even after grind. Second moe was close for long, but mm messed it several times and eventually I swapped the gun back to 75mm for more constant results to get it.

It was my first tank too with decent (gold paid transfer) crew. I still use the very same crew to 2-moe rebought tanks every now and then.

No 3rd moe's though. Maybe some day if I find motivation for that.

My first MoE was on KV-3. The battle was in the old map Northwest, south spawn. Did quite a good game (was still a real noob back then so was nothing special, even if I was learning about armour angling at that time) and at the end I got my first star on the gun barrel. Was quite surprised and proud of that. :)


My first 2 MoE and my only 3 MoE are both on T-150. The 3 MoE was on Sacred Valley. Did a nice 3k damage game and finally did the small step to get past 94%. Considering I didn't fired any APCR up to that point I think that is my best result in terms of MoE.

First mark was on the Grille (the tier V one) and for a short while I thought I'd three-marked it because I was only vaguely aware of gun marks ... three rings means three-marked, right? :D


First actual three-mark was the Crusader back when it was a light. The requirements were ridiculously low, probably because most players only played the Crusader to get to the Cromwell, something like 500-600 damage per game. I'd received two marks without paying attention, checked my percentages to see I was on about 92% and it didn't take long to get the third.

First MoE was on the Cromwell. Played platoons with my friends and clan mates Bot and Chili, think it was Prokhorovka.


First 3 mark was with VK 16.02 Leopard, tier 6 game, pulled a 8-kill Radley-Walters’ Medal, High Caliber, Topgun, Orlik’s Medal and Kamikaze on Abbey.

I remember mine, it was in the Crusader 5.5 SPG.. and I remember thinking it was weird that I had got a Mark of Excellence in a tank that I had only a 47% WR in

Likewise, I remember getting a mark on a KV (either the 1 or 1S) and either Wolverine or Hellcat on the same day. Total surprise in both instances as it wasn't something I had ever thought about. I remember talking to a clan mate about it and being told how to look up the progress on each tank. Still something I don't pay much attention to. Its a case of it it happens, it happens, if it doesn't then it doesn't bother me.
