I finally did it.  I got my first 3 mark.  I've been in the 90-95% range on my Jumbo and T67 many times, but inevitably i come crashing back to earth with a couple 0 dmg games.  Yesterday's pilot mission (be top 3 in exp and win) made me choose to play my T1 a bit.  I admit I used some premium rounds in the games with bad MM, but I finally did it.  

 

I don't even care for this tank very much.  It's a great tank, but I don't like falling behind faster tanks when we win because I get no dmg.  So my question now is, how realistic is it to get 3 marks without using premium rounds?  Seems like with how many people use it, it would be almost impossible (unless you are in a very powerful high tier tank).  Thanks all and happy tanking.

Good job 3-Marking the T1 Heavy!! And as for getting 3-Marks with standard rounds.....it is hard to do, especially when a single missed shot can determine if you go up or down. So people use Premium rounds to guarantee the highest amount of damage with the best chance of the shot actually going through. +1

Nice work man. I don't think I'll ever get three MOE since Im  a Marine and theres only certain times I can play. But I do have 2 marks on my Super Pershing. #c marks is very impressive.

it depends on the tank, I 3 marked the baby leopard just yoloing around with standard rounds

 

on the patton kr it took a few prem rounds but not much. I chalk that up to all the rentals

 

on the wz-111 the prem rounds were practically my standard ammo

I know that feel bro. I even had some screenshots of when I had like 94.8% or something on my T29, but gladly I got my first 3 MoE a few days ago. Next one is probably going to be M41 Walker Bulldog or M46 Patton KR.

 

Congratulations! :medal:

How possible is it to get 3x MoE without premium ammo? Depends on the tank, depends on who your competition is week to week. Remember that your score is being judged specifically in reference to others who are playing the same tank within the last 7 days. Trends change with time. There's always the off chance that one week in particular is really treating one specific tank really roughly, meaning you can slip right past your peers without as much effort. For example, my first 3x MoE was on the StuG III Ausf. G, which would only be touching its premium rounds on very rare occasions. For the entire MoE grind I must have only fired a couple APCR at the most. But when grinding for E25 MoE, firing tons of APCR was mandatory.

 

But there's no reason to ever completely divorce yourself from premium ammo/consumables in the first place. You don't have to pile on tons of the stuff, even just a little goes a long way.

I've never 3 marked any tank and I never will. Its really because I'm a terribad player. But congrats on the 3 marks for the T1. I can barely get the 3rd mark for my T67.

About premium ammo, I have no idea why but a few battles before I got 3 MoE on my T29 I felt like spamming APCR wasn't doing any good. Probably because I was used to AP shell velocity or something. Seemed to be bouncing/being absorbed on tracks and stuff quite often. I still carried 20 APCR on it because it has a lot of ammo capacity but when I started using mainly AP things started working out and then I finally got it. Not surprising that my first MoE was in that tank since it's my most played tank.

I've three marked 3 tanks so far, the KV-5, the M10 Wolverine, and the T1 Heavy. Of the three the KV-5 required the most gold rounds (167 base pen FTW!). The Wolverine was by far the easiest. I wasn't trying to get the 3rd mark or anything, it just showed up. I guess because everyone who wants to club plays the T67 instead. So if you want an "easy" three mark without shooting a lot of gold, the M10 might be the way to go. A decent camo crew and binoculars makes it totally OP for tier 5.

depends on how well other people do in the tank compared to you, so it usually all boils down to how good and consistent you are.

Congrats, it is truly one heck of an achievement, to get 3 marks on any tank..   It is an incredible amount of hard work, so much, I will not attempt a 3rd mark another time, if it happens it happens.  Im happy with just two on my favorite few tanks.   Great Job!

All I have is a pile of 1-star barrels. But then again, maybe 5% of all the shots I fire are premium.

Nice I have 3 on the T-34, T-34-85, and Chaffee.  I'm close on several specifically the T-150 which I have literally had up to 94.9 before I'm also setting my sights on the T-37 but not sure since it is a pretty commonly played tank, this all to say I know the pain of doing 0 or something similar just because either you are low tier or your team straight up sucks that bad.  Keep on keeping on and gratz on the 3 MoE. 

 

With the Jumbo do you use the stock turret/howitzer that a lot of good players use?  If not I would suggest it.  Also aim for tracks if you have the howitzer and are in higher tier MM since assist damage will count just like real damage.

 

1 Mark is pretty cool, it means you are pretty good at your tank, enough to understand how not to suck, 2 is really good, you are very dangerous in that tank and 3 is just yow watch out for this guy.
