Gore’s Medal

In World of Tanks, players may be awarded “epic medals” under certain extraordinary circumstances.  These medals are usually inspired by some historic military commander, hero, or event.

The other day, I acquired “Gore’s Medal” for the first time in my Hummel.

The other awards I won in that battle:

“Ace Tanker” mastery badge

Earn more base experience in a single battle than the average highest experience of 99% of all players in the same tank within the last seven days

“Fighter” honorary rank

Destroy 4 or 5 enemy vehicles in the course of the battle.

“Arsonist” token

Destroy an enemy vehicle by setting it on fire.

“Bruiser” token

Damage enemy modules and/or knock out their crew members at least 5 times in the course of the battle.

“High Caliber” battle hero medal

Awarded to players who dealt the largest amount of damage during the battle and where the total damage dealt is at least 20% of the total hit points of all tanks on the enemy team.

 

Mark of Excellence: Hummel

I earned my first Mark of Excellence on my Hummel the other day in World of Tanks.  These are special markings that are drawn on the barrel of a player’s tank which indicate exceptional performance.

These in-game markings borrow from the old “kill rings” or “victory marks” tank crews would paint onto their tank guns to mark their kills.
