Hi all

Just want to say I have spent now approx. 3 hours looking at many stats of players above 50% W/R and it can be confirmed that not Pool, but Kolobanov is the hardest medal to get. Even among super unicums and streamers etc, the Kolobanov is the most scarce. 

Dunno, I thought some people might be interested :B

Happy hunting !

 

EDIT after feedbacks: Raseiniai appears to be more scarce, my bad... totally have not seen it due to basically no one having it that I looked at.

except that most kolobonovs are from capping not fighting...pools you have to HARD carry more often than not to get.  just saying...either one is a hell of an accomplishment

It is the most situational. You have to have done MANY things right to get it.

I was 3 time short of Pool, 1 kill away. Sure, did not get it, but close, I know for a fact I will get it soon because that is the type of medal that you can increase your chances to get at lower tiers, where most players still not so experienced and sit in crap crew tanks.

If you try get Kolobanov in those tiers it is much harder, you have to consider so much stuff including allowing friends to die in order to still win. I got mine with the KV-5 at a cap while being surrounded by 5 tanks trying to kill me at same time. 3 were killed by slow speed ramming (have ramming perks on KV-5) and two by shooting.

Got six of them, two of them in tier 9s......

 

Got everyone by eliminating the last 5-6 tanks myself.....

 

My best was in one of my tier 9s with 11xkills total, and killing the reaming 6 tanks myself.

 

Yup it is not an easy one to earn.

I am curious. 

How many Tarczay's medals did you find out there?

In grand battles with 30 players each it is easier to get (statistically) than Pool, but good point, since most do not play grand battles, I have not considered this. But let's say if we turn all ranked matches in 30 player matches, then you need to finish off 10 tanks and be the last one on field to get Kolobanov, so this would be much harder to do than killing 14 I think. 

(that is if you get epic medals there, no idea, have not played that mode yet).

I have a Kolobanov's,but that was because I was defending in an Assault mode on Karelia in my Pz 4 H and the time went out with me living alone against 6 enemy vehicles :)

I've seen one of those, in a tier 4-6 battle back about 4 years ago.  It was a guy driving the VK3601 (when it was a medium with the Konisch), a city map (can't recall which one), and I was in a damn Hetzer with 6 kills and had to try and take him on.  Needless to say, I didn't make it... :teethhappy:

Actually not that many, but more than Kolobanov, and interestingly, I have seen that medal also in less skilled players when I was looking at medals yesterday (which gave me the idea to do the sampling today of more experienced players). I think this is because many new players use wrong ammo and just shoot wildly at enemies, getting crews killed etc by luck and not by skill, and then going for other tanks that are nearly dead to one shot them. This is a typical behavior of new players anyway.

I got two of those... and I'm just over 1K WIN8 point away from being Unicum.

 

Lat one was last night.... assault defense, it was down to 3 arties and HT one shot and HT slow blue player..... with about 30 seconds left in the game I killed IS tank (he was orange) and run away.  Didn't even know I got it til it showed up after the game.  I Don't mind getting bonds.

I laughed when I got my first, it was in the Jag 88. Unexpected.

Followed it up with a 1v5 in the Super P, one of them killed himself ha.

I  was also 1v7 in my WZ on defense, killed 5 of them before time ran out and I won.

Also 1v6 in my T49 with epic snap shot kills on three of them, that was fun.

 

As for Pool's, I got one in the old KV-1S and one in the T67. Neither was hard.

 

It differs.

Fadin's can be obtained by selecting less ammo, joining low tier battles, and have some patience :) But otherwise, if you do not specifically go for it, I agree, especially with tanks with higher ammo count !!
