I’ve had some good games since I started playing World of Tanks again. Here are some awards I recently earned:
The Arsonist award is not easy to get, especially with an SPG. With a single shot, you have to almost destroy a tank and score a critical hit on the fuel tank and have the fuel tank rupture and catch fire and have the fire do enough damage to finish off the tank.
I was wondering if I’d ever get the Bombardier award, as it entails destroying two tanks with one shot. High-explosive artillery shells FTW!
I was not expecting the Battle Buddy award; I had no idea it existed. I guess it says something about an arty player since SPGs are typically not very accurate and often fire high-explosive shells which cause splash damage. It’s very easy to damage allies if one is not careful.
Destroying a third of the enemy team by yourself is a decent accomplishment.
The Raider award is earned when you capture the enemy base — you have to make it to the enemy flag and stay close to it for a minute or two — and do it without ever being spotted by the enemy. This is fairly humiliating to the enemy. It’s especially so when the enemy does it with a terribly slow SPG.
The game also has a campaign for each class of tank. Each campaign consists of fifteen missions, and each mission consists of a primary win condition and a secondary win condition. These missions are just a goal you can set for yourself — you don’t have do them.
The reward for completing a mission is typically a pile of credits and/or some in-game consumable. Completing a mission with honors (i.e. fulfilling both primary and secondary conditions) rewards additional credits. The reward for completing every mission in a campaign includes a female crew member (and this is the only way to get them).
I had completed the entire campaign a few days ago, but the game gives you the option to retry any mission which you did not complete with honors the first time. Tonight I managed to finally complete the entire campaign with honors.

And, finally, here’s a photo of my favorite tank — the Hummel:
