I disagree with the argument that the use of such medals is so sacred that they cannot be applied in a video game. It's not real life guys, it's fantasy. No one is suggesting that anyone is dishonoured by awarding a pixel medal for pixel bravery.

 

That being said, if these awards are ever to be given out, they should be so difficult to attain that almost no one can get them. Also, I'd prefer the Victoria Cross instead of the Medal of Honor, thanks. (sarcasm, with a hint of truth - not everyone can identify with American medals as much as their own....)

 

Oh, and since posting years of service seems to be de rigueur, CAN, 1986 - 1998.

 

Didn't think of that.

Medals of honor are generally awarded posthumously.

They were for awhile, but lately there have been survivors awarded the medal.

I would like to see this one:

 

Medal of Honor

 

Stand aganset 10 or more enemy tanks and surviving after losing 50% or more of your hitpoints make it a epic medal. It could look something like this:

That would be something nice to see.

 

This would be a intersting award cause it would show that when things turned rough you didn't panic you kept your cool and played right, or be it the enemy team failed massively at trying to kill you. 

 

The purple heart I have no idea how to do let's say you survive the battle even after losing half your crew or more and destroy a enemy tank, perhaps?

Why not the "order of Lenin" and "hero of Russia"? Do you hate Russians?and Commies do you want WG and WoT to tag you and throw you in with losing teams always??? Have you heard of the Gong called "cool headed" that everyone has twenty of? your other medal idea is similarly also used I am sure.. With upto 10% damage instead of 50% I think, I dunno.
