Pretty simple. In 8.3 the Kay's medal description says this: "Awarded for achieving the battle hero status in 4 classes". Well, That's the part I have a problem with, anyways. The new battle stats screen (which is awesome, BTW) Makes no indication that awards like "defender", "Steel Wall", and "top Gun" make you a battle hero, whereas the old stats screen had an entire tab for that. Thus, new players may be confused as to what being a "Battle Hero" is. If you could change the description to say "Battle achievements" (as the awards are listed on the wiki) and/or indicate that getting one of these awards gives you "Battle Hero" status, It would lead to less confusion among those who never saw/forgot the old stats screen. Basically, Change the description of Kay's medal or show people in some way how to get "Battle Hero" status.

What you suggest would make it more confusing.
In the game guide, on the page for Achievements, each class of achievement is broken out (see below for simple list from that page).  Note the first of the classes is "Battle Hero Achievements."  In other words, these achievements are the only ones that apply to Kay's Medal.  If they changed it to just "Battle Achievements," as you suggest, it would imply that every thing on that page applies to Kay's Medal, which is simpy not the case.

Battle Hero Achievements: Top Gun, Defender, Invader, Steel wall, Sniper, Confederate, Scout, Patrol Duty, Brothers in Arms, and Crucial Contribution.

Commemorative Achievements: Cool-Headed, Lucky, Patton Valley, Ranger, and Spartan.

Epic Achievements:  Boelter's Medal (is not being granted since 8.0 update), Radley Walter's Medal, Pool's Medal, Orlik's Medal, Tamada Yoshio's Medal, Lehväslaiho's Medal, Oskin's Medal, Nicols's Medal, Kolobanov's Medal, Halonen's Medal, Fadin's Medal, Pascucci's Medal, Dumitru's Medal, Burda's Medal, Billotte's Medal, Bruno's Medal, Tarczay's Medal,  Raseiniai Heroes Medal, and DeLanglande's Medal

Step Achievements: Abrams' Medal (IV–I class), Ekins' Medal (IV–I class), Carius' Medal (IV–I class), Knispel's Medal (IV–I class), Popel's Medal (IV–I class), Leclerc's Medal (IV–I class), Lavrinenko's Medal (IV–I class), and Kay's Medal (IV–I class).

Titles of Honor: Hunter, Sharpshooter, Raider, Mouse Trap, Survivor, Kamikaze, Reaper, Master Gunner, Invincible, The Lion of Sinai, Bombardier, Technical Engineer by Nation, Senior Technical Engineer, Tank Expert by Nation, and Master Tanker.

Not everyone reads the game guide (including myself- Sorry). And calling it "Battle Achievements" was just an Idea. In reality I would prefer if they had a list of battle hero achievements/ achievements that add up to Kay's medal/ said on your service record when you mouse over battle hero achievements that they're battle hero achievements. I don't really care if they change the name, just make the info easily acessible in-game.
