I'm asking a potentially stupid question here- is this award still around? I haven't uncovered that it's been removed, yet it isn't mentioned on the WOT wiki.

 

It is simply: do damage in the game equivalent to the hp of your vehicle. I have earned 3700 of these, but I don't seem to be being awarded them any more. Not that I'm bothered normally, but the current Festival Weekend 7 will be awarding 30 tickets for these (as of tomorrow).

 

I just played two games, one win, one lose, where I exceeded the hp of my vehicle in dmg and didn't get it in either.

 

Am I missing something obvious? :amazed: 

 

Thanks!

 

EDIT- after playing more games in teh E25, I am definitely getting it now- not sure what happened earlier...thanks all

It is still around:

However:

-Random Battles only (no Frontline, Clan wars etc)

-SPGs can't get it (given their atrophied Hitpoints it would be ridiculous for them, heck, getting that medal with a TD is a bit silly already)

Thanks for the reply. Ok, so it's still around- is it actually double the hitpoints, not equal? I was in an E25 and Hellcat for my two games today and didn't get double (too agressive)

Tap on the ribbon in the link above. It quite clearly states the very simple requirements.

More dmg than your own hitpoints. Nothing more than that. Actually a very good reward, since not getting it in a battle means that you (just) might not have carried your own weight.

It's for causing more damage then the HP of your vehicle. So basically more then 830 in the E25's case. It won't appear in the notifications centers battle results anymore. But still appear on the main battle result screen.

Well you don't get it for pure assist scout rounds. So if you are a passive LT player, you see way less of them.

I have read the simple requirements, and although I am adhering to the simple requirements, I am not getting the award- hence my checking with the oh so friendly forum. Thanks for your post.

True dat. But I always try, anyways.

How about Battle Buddy? Now when friendly fire is removed does that badge mean anything anymore? I've been away a couple of months now (planning to play a session tonight) so is that in the game anymore? I have 108 @ 9709 of those. Am I a good battle buddy? :arta::teethhappy:

Your reply suggests that my reply was heaped with sarcasm. It was not. You asked if it was double HP. It quite clearly states the requirements in the replay results.

Well it could also be a mod issue, where is the replay so that we can see that you met the requirements? Or at least a screenshot from the result screen?

Here is a link: http://wotreplays.eu...677f2f6ad32ae8d to the game in question I mentioned in the OP

 

Unfortunately, it does show the medal, but in-game it 100% didn't. I did play more games later last night and it showed them then also, so it may have been a bug of some sort (and cleared with a reboot/ restart of client)/

 

Thanks anyway, and mods can lock this now.
