Today I finally 3 marked the Type 59! Back when the Type 59 was still in sale I bought even tough I did not even own a tier 8 of myself. Over the years it was nerfed and powercreeped but I still love playing it. A week ago I saw that my mark was at 80% and decided to mark it. Many APCR rounds and a sh*t ton of food later it happened :).

Niiiiice.  This is my current goal since I just got the T23E3.

 

I'm floating between 93.5 and 94.5 I just need to put 2 or 3 bombastic games together.

 

Well done, now go play badly to make it easier for me XD

Now that raises an interesting question, would it be more practical to 3-mark a tank before the buff, when expected values are lower, or after the buff, when you you have greater potential? Or is the right moment just when the buff goes live and you get the best of both worlds.

​It depends: will the buff greatly increase the potential damage of the tank, raising the overall damage, thus raising the amount needed to three mark?  Or will the buff not affect the potential damage, but make the tank easier to play, like better gun handling, making it easier to farm damage?

I saw a post from you earlier about 3 marking the Type 59 and I was hoping you were not playing it while I did ;).

This month I want to stay in the top 10 in the hall of fame but after that I will switch back to AP. Good luck!

I was thinking about stopping at 90% and then play it close after the update goes live so the last 100 battles of others would be worse (I hope) than mine since my Type 59 would be more powerful.

 

Thank you all! :)

I am new to this marking of the tanks.  If you 3 mark a tank, is it always 3 marked or just for the time period (1-2 weeks)?  How do you know how well you are doing in a particular tank compared to the rest?


Thank you.

They marks stay on your tank and will never disappear. The percentage shows that you played better than xx.xx% of the other players in the last 14 days, and it takes the last 100 battles you played (So not 14 days). Damage and assistance damage counts towards your marks so it is smart to shoot the track of other tanks which gives you assistance damage. As shown in the first picture you can see what your percentage is in your statistics of your tank.

Congrats!

 

I sucked too hard when I played my Type 59, maybe I'll give it another try in the next patch.

So, if I play better than 95% of all the other players for 100 games I can get a 3 Mark on any of my tanks?

tier 5 and higher, yes.

 

Some are far easier than others.  The Cromwell, for instance, is stupid easy to 3 mark but the Cromwell B is much harder

no kidding.  Last week I was at 94.91 needed to simply not have a bad game.  Ammo racked by ISU 152 as I was crossing the gap on that ice road map towards the H area flank.  93%

Although that's nice to know.....keep it to yourself.

some of us don't own one of those and try as we might to procure one of these special vehicles,it's never going to happen,

so unless you can get me one....Me and everyone else who doesn't have one don't care if you 1 mark it or 3 mark it....lol

 

I really do want one.
