Before update 9.18 I had two Pascucci's medals, after 9.18 I have gotten 9 in the last month. The old requierments to get the medal use to be that you had to destroy 3 or more artillary in one battle,:medal: fair enough, but now  you only need to destroy 2.I understand wargamings reasoning behind this (since only up to three arty can be in one battle, killing three for a medal is to hard) but it just seems to easy to be in the epic medal class.It seems to me that it should be in the hero medal class.Now it's like the fighter award , it's a nice, shiny thing to earn in a battle but when you go back and look at someones stats it's like"oh, cool, they have 100 of those just like everyone else."Nothing special :sceptic:.Am I over exaggerating?What are your thoughts?

They should put it back to three.  Most of the time when people for it, I'm guessing, the battles probably only had three max anyway.

 

Plus, if the come out with the 30 vs 30 games, you can have up to six artillery per team.

Off topic a bit but I  bet they will have special awards exclusively for 30 vs. 30.

The medal got diluted.... And I personally don't like it. It lessens the work of those who earned it back when it was harder to get.

I had a few Pascucci's before and it wasn't that hard to get if you really wanted it. I used to get it occasionally, now I got 28 even though I'm still not even trying.

 

I think it's OK the way it is, but if people really want it changed maybe they could make Pascucci's require 3 SPGs and Dumitru's would be 3 SPGs of at least 1 tier higher than you or something like that. Dumitru's was rare before 9.18, I had 1~3 and now I have 6.

What they should have done is retire those old medals and create new ones.

 

Those poor people with Burda's... My God it was the rarest medal to get at one point... Not anymore.

Ahh, those were good times back then. I remember I got my first Pascucci's Medal on Airfield, with the 75mm toting Pz.Sfl. IVc. Of all tanks to get an award for killing artillery it had to be the tank that looked the most like artillery.

 

But yeah, I've even gotten a Dumitru's medal since 9.18 which I don't feel like I deserve.

They down graded the requirements on several medals with 9.18.  The kill X number 2 tiers higher with a TD/med/LT have mostly been changed to 1 tier.

Yeah, they should have frozen the old one and created a new medal, "Pascucci's Junior".  (Or for musicians, "Pascuccissimo"   ;)

Should have called it the"Wannabe Pascucci's" medal. Or the Pascucci Light.

Six SPGs per side would be a nightmare. :ohmy:  As soon as a tank got spotted, a rain of arty shells would drop on it.  Tank goes poof.:arta:  Next.:justwait:

Would bring back memories of the bad old days where we had 5 arties on a side.  Holy s**t!
