How does someone go 100+ battles in a tank and not have at least a 3rd class mastery badge?

How does said person get all indignant in chat?

Had a dude in an M3 Lee the other night call me out for sniping in my Hetzer with the 75 when he cut my shot and got tracked while making a headlong charge into the gun of the enemy Hetzer I was hitting, then taunt me about "hiding" when everyone else on the flank marched obligingly into the meat grinder and I thought it best NOT to give up my camo so at least I could slow the enemy flank a couple minutes more.

But, seriously, how do you go 100+ matches without at least a 3RD CLASS mastery badge?  Yes, I repeated myself, I'm just that mystified!  I get peeved at myself if I can't get that within a few matches STOCK.  I mean, I can see a Ace Tanker, sometimes the game you earn that on is one that just all falls together beautifully!  But 3RD CLASS?

It's an enigma, a mystery rapped in a riddle...or they just plain suck...but in their defense...they are really good at it.

Dude, that little M is evading me in the M10 Wolverine and the M18 Hellcat.  I'm not talking about Aces, or even 1sts.  I can even see capping out at 3rd, if you're just not that competitive or skilled.  But to never, in over 100 battles, have even scored above the 50% mark?  Srsly?!?

well it took me 130 battles to get my 3rd class on my M18, then the next day i got into a battle and earned Ace Tanker. And to be honest i don't care about these classes as all it tells me is you had one great game

I just chalk it up to number of people who play the tank and the number of people who keep it as a credit grinder.  Hell, my top in the M10 is only 10XP less than the T40, and I got Ace on the t40 before my crew even hit 100%.

I just laugh at them when people like that feel like they know better than me when they have only played like 500 battles.

i just got ace tanker in the t50/2 cause i got over 2000 damage and got 4 kills (killed 2 tds, one heavy and a light) and i'm not even a scout guy lol.   I can go back and try to master the tanks I couldn't in the past but i'm not bothered right now.   Right now i'm trying to master the KV5 lol

I honestly just have mine as a credit grinder haha. Already have the m18 researched, disliked it, hoping the m36 is more of my style

Kill some tanks that are higher tiered than you. I killed a T34, a Lowe, a T28, and a VK4502A, and severely wounded a Type 59 in my Tiger I. I got 1600 exp along with that big golden "M" badge.

I generally look at someone's stats in the track they're driving in the battle if their behavior stood out as excessively good or excessively stupid, so that wouldn't be the case.

They could have played it pre-7.2, which means mastery badges didn't exist.

But this is just ONE GAME. Out of 100.  That they have to score over the 50% mark.  For that week.

I mean, we've all had those situations (and probably have all GIVEN) where we get the kill and think, "Wow, that was just set up perfectly. I didn't even have to try."

Does it really mean anything?
