I'm about to have a go at getting the only two epic medals I don't already have (not counting the artillery ones).

One of them is Tarczy's Epic Medal.

It says you need to lose 80% of your hit points and suffer 5 critical damages.

If you receive the five critical damage and then repair them, does that still count towards the medal?

Or is it necessary to keep the 5 critical damages althrough the game?

Appreciate your answer.

I've only gotten it once. In my Light Vic that got strafed by a T7CC killing all modules and leaving nothing but the driver unharmed. I did fall back and repaired what I could "pre-repair kit cooldowns". But I still had 5 or more at the end of it. As it clearly says that you have to keep the 5 broken modules for the duration of the battle in the medal.

 

It also says the 5 kills must be AFTER you lose 80% of your HP and 5 modules. As it only counts kills after you lose 80% of your HP. So keep that in mind too.

This medal is only awarded to those who can pronounce it correctly.

Wtf it doesn't say that. It says that you need to do the kills after you lost 80% hp and 5 modules.

I know, because i got the bruno medal on my chieftain by accident. i got hit by arty, lost two crew members and got set on fire. Then i repaired everything with large repair/first aid kits and got 3 kills and got the medal.

I barely see people getting Bilotte's medals. I basically never see people getting a Bruno's medal and never saw someone getting Tarczay's medal, nor got one myself.

Those things are really freaking rare

I think I accidentally got one of those Tarzan or Bilette medals because I am too lazy to pay attention to damage to my tank.

That's false. It still counts if you repair your modules.

 

It only says the kills must be done AFTER the damage has been taken, nothing about keeping the damaged modules for the rest of the game. The medal would be pretty much impossible if that was the case. 

 

Source: got a Brunos Medal in my 430U after a 4005 blasted it and I repaired most of it.

I got one Tarczays… in the ARL V39 :hiding:

 

I still remember the game I got it in.... Mines :izmena: 

 

edit: it was a long time ago, before repair kits etc.. were multi use so I remember having a very crippled tank by the end of that game :(

Well, calm down then... As it turns out some of WG's own pages still lits the OLD requirements. It was changed years ago apparently. Thus the confusion for some still I suspect.

Ok, so after some claims from some of you that you need to keep the 5 modules until the end of the battle, the consensus is that, that statement is false.

You can repair your critical damage and still be awarded your medal, right?

 

How about the claim that you need to destroy the 5 enemies after you receive the 80% damage, is that false aswell?  Cofirmed

 

Thanks all for your input.

 

P.S The reason I'm asking is because all description I have is the following:

 

"Awarded to players who destroy five enemy vehicles and survive the battle despite receiving five different critical hits and losing 80%+ of their hit points.  Destroyed enemy vehicles count after all damage is received."

 

As you can see there are no clarification specifying of when you need to destroy the tanks. Indeed there is, correcting myself here.

Some of you seem to have another text, please point me to it, if that is currently valid.

Because scoring 5 kills & then get reduced to low HP & a ton of broken modules is rather easy. And the medal you gun for is way to rare for it.

 

On that note, the rarity of Bilotte's medal already points to this, scoring 2 kills is not a rare feat, yet this medal isn't that common, as scoring two kills after losing almost all your HP & a bunch of modules is not that easy.

 

Oh and it says so in the description you quoted: "Destroyed enemy vehicles count after all damage is received."<-- this means the kills must be done after the damage is received.

 

Edit: corrected the terrible typo's

You're quite right, my bad, not paying attention properly.

These days repair kit and first aid kit are usable in every 90 seconds.

Everyone use them.

So achieve a Tarczay medal is very unlikely.

(Unless you are a very determined person OR a masochist)

Ever since consumables have gotten a cooldown timer, these kind of medals have become impossibly hard to get. Unless you purposefully would keep your modules damaged, I don't think anyone will really get these medals anymore.

I too got mine when the repair kit was only usable once.  Arty hit my kv-1 in the first minute of battle and set it on fire.  So my advice is get set on fire in a tank with enough armor to survive against noobs.  Note that the website says 'different modules', so getting tracked 5 times doesn't work.
