I just got into the whole efficiency ratting thing and found mine in 1569, then I saw that the best of the best are called unicums. I'm hoping it means unicorns, I just wanted to know why 1800+ plus players call them self unicorns. to me that's pretty lame. I just wanted to know where  its origin came from.

Old times meaning of "unicum" is original or unique, nowdays it is translated as term describing lack of sexual intercourse.

From the Latin ūnicum, the neuter nominative singular form of ūnicus (“unique”)

Aha! Another Benedictine monk gone astray...your knowledge of latin betrays you, brother! Back to the church, post haste, or the Bishop shall hear of this! (sorry, flashback)

Correction above.

Garbad does help the community, and he helps a LOT. I have watched many of his vids and read many of his posts and they have helped. But his attitude sometimes gets in the way ...

Sometimes? Clearly you have a higher tolerance than me, I can't hardly stand to read anything he writes unless it's an arty bash, there's just an air of smug about him that overcomes anything good about him.

Unicums have a bigger horn between their legs. So it's not the unicorn, too much fairy tales. In RL the unicums get the girls screaming.

Verily, the Unicum is a rare beast indeed.  They are blessed with the ability to shoot a full-speed T-50-2 on the fly, can cap in 20 seconds and can get the Top Gun medal by killing single tanks (five others just die in fear).  They can penetrate anything, even with splash damage.  They shoot through schools.  They can be identified on the battlefield by driving tanks made entirely of Kolobanov's medals.

They are rare in the forums, being a secretive lot.  They have, however, elected a 'spokesperson' of sorts.  Sort of like a 'Mouth of Sauron' for Unicums.  His name is Garbad and he drives a chariot pulled by golden BatChats.  He hates arty.  My SU-26 crew refuse to leave the garage if they are about.

Fear them.

There are unicums with less than 2,000 battles.
