I was looking through missions and realized that it has been at least two years since seeing once of those specially marked accounts that you kill and get gold. I had completed it twice back when it was normal to see them, and before it was even renamed "Hunt The Sheriffs". I am wondering if anyone has actually seen one of these accounts recently.

Yes, I've seen one 2-3 days ago, and a few more in the past month.

They'd been gone for a long while until the past week. They're finally back.

there's 3 in every match.  they're playtesting the new soon-to-be-released premium camo.  people can't even see you on the team list - only $100.

if I remember right they have a red symbol by their name.  not the ranked battle symbol, a different one.

Could someone take a screenshot and post if of what these sheriffs look like?  I've played thousands of battles and haven't seen any players with any special symbols other than the Ranked Battle thing or clan logo.  Does it stay on during the match or is it only visible in the pregame?

 

FYI - I thought this was some bogus mission there to just annoy me.  As far as I know, in my 4,000+ battles so far, I have yet to see one - and I've been looking.

Look for the clan tag "WGL-A" (or "WGL-B" ). We don't call them Sheriffs any more, they're 'pros', and are run by the e-sports team members. When they are on the enemy team, you will see a little crosshair behind the tank icon on the team listing on the top right corner of your screen.

Thank you Sir for explaining that to me. I will continue to be on the lookout for these dirty rascals now that I know what I'm looking for...

This is what their player names look like and in battle they have a red circle next to their names (oh and if you kill more than one in a single battle you still only get 250 gold :():

Thank you for posting those pictures.  WOW, killing 2 in one game - you are THE MAN!  Great job!!! :great:

 

I believe that they didn't contemplate when a person killed 2 of them in one game.  I would suggest you submit those pictures in a ticket to Wargaming to see if you can get the other 250 Gold. Although I'm sure there's no rule covering that either way (making it discretionary), I think they might give it to you - especially since you lost.  Good luck!

LOL - I am an average player at best - I just got that little bit of luck needed in this particular game.  To your point, I did raise a ticket enquiring if I could get 2 payouts of gold as I thought the mission text was ambiguous at best but they said "Well Done but NO" :teethhappy:.

Well, it says kill "Kill any Sheriff in any specially marked account and get 250 Gold."  You killed 2 Sheriffs, so you should get 250 for each.  It's their (WGLNA's) fault for platooning in the same match and getting killed by the same guy.  You might have stretched out in battle to get that 2nd one knowing you'd likely die just to get the kill or something.  Besides, ambiguity has always gone in favor of the Customer and not WG in the past.  When they mess up, they generally make it right and then change the wording of the ads.  According to the Chieftain, you didn't even kill a "Sheriff" but a "Pro" instead.  Time for someone to get off their bee-hind and start editing their wording.

 

Not for nothing, but I wouldn't take NO for an answer on this issue. Geez Louise, it's only 250 Gold and you earned it under the rules.  If it were me, I'd reopen that ticket and with a request for a supervisor and point out that if they wanted a limitation in game, they should have stated so.  Without such a limitation, you followed the rules and you expect WG to follow them as well.

 

 

(This is in no way legal advice.  I am not your attorney, however, if you get 250 more gold out of this, I shall expect 50 of it to find its way into my account  ;)  )
