Fadin's Medal is also a hard one to get.

 

Destroy the last enemy vehicle with your last shell.

 

I destroyed the final tank with my second to last shell.  After killing him I realized I should have shot the dirt first.

 

And Fadin's is hard but yet relatively easy to cheese at lower tiers.  Find a tank where you can easily "kill steal" and then remove ammo.  Then as you get towards the end of the match intentionally shoot the dirt so that you only have a single shot and "steal" the last kill.

What about Bruno's? With the introduction of reusable consumables, you'd have to go out of your way to not repair/heal to get one.

 That or a Fadin's.

 

My Fadin's came in back to back matches with the T49 (now known as the T67).  The odds of that happening in back to back games has to be astronomically low...

HUG>>>>>> I am no unicum or even blue, but but I got 3 of them! This is because I've played t6 tanks for a while. I agree this will be extremely difficult at any higher level...

Thanks OP! You made my day! :)

Good research, I came REALLY close to getting a Pool's Medal in my IS7, short by one kill. I only got one Kolobanov's Medal, I will cherish it because I will probably never get another one... LOL.

Kolobanov's can be fluked. I've seen many obviously botted accounts with the medal. I've witnessed it in assault mode on a few occasions; bots static in some weird position with their turrets spinning the whole game where the enemy can't find them in time, or have enough time to full cap. Saw a replay with a cap race where three cappers all died but won because the timer was full within the five second period. Their one surviving arty did pretty much nothing the whole game but got a Kolobanov's.

I've picked up 2 Pool's and 2 Kolobanov's. Got a Kolo in the T-28E F-30....I killed all 5 enemies, no capping. Picked up a Pool's in the KV-220-2. And then I picked up the 2nd ones of both in the KV-122 in the same battle. Killed 10 enemies, capped, and got killed only 1-2 seconds too late by the last enemy, and I won the game. There's the replay so you believe me :P : http://wotreplays.eu/site/3925291#abbey-haxmachine21-kv-122

I agree that Kolobanov's Medal is a very hard one to get I personally think that Rader is another very tough one to get too!

OP. I saw grand battles mentioned earlier. the requirements change for those, pools for example takes 13-20 kills in grand battles.  kobolonavs is random only, and raseineis is 21 for grands

Get tiger 131 or jap tiger wait until you are top tier, do nothing until alost everyone died, use the remaining as meat shields or push them into enemy fire but make sure there are only 4-5 enemies then is a matter of camp bush or get them 1v1 while you diamond angle and use gold (vs OI or KV2 ) against the derpers and just as easy as that you get one medal

Fadin's or Invincible are both pretty hard to get, especially in 'regular' play.

 

The thing about Kolobanov's, is that I consider it a big middle finger to the "Don't cap, kill all" crowd. Given how often I see the latter, it does not surprise me that so many Kolobanovs are awarded.

 

 

 

Kolobanov's medal on a defense map is a joke.  I have seen arty win Kolobanov's three separate times while defending on this map.

 

E.g. 

Defence team gets overrun, Arty escapes (usually French one) timer drops to zero, and the attack team failed to cap. 

Award 1 Kolobonov's to an arty that failed to cap or kill, yet still gets the same achievement to a player that had to work very hard.

 

I've made this ^^^post before, so please excuse the repeat.

I also believe Raseiniai  to be more rare.  Seems much harder to achieve.

 

Couple of years ago I killed 12 in a tier 3 match and it took a unique chain of events (red team of idiots and some luck by RNG).

 

I wasn't sure how someone would kill 14 or 15 (the entire team) without someone on your team getting at least 1 kill.

 

I do have 2 Kolobanov medals.  1 was in KV-5 and I was alone vs. 7 or 8 on Fisherman's bay.  The other I think was in a KV-1 but to be honest I don't remember for sure.

I have a Kolobanov's in my French arty.  I don't understand how you win without capping or kills all though.  Personally, I got on cap and then proceeded to reset against big fat heavy tanks that hide in the only spot that could be considered having any shelter on the cap.  The one that got away, was with the Sturmpanzer II.  One kill was just after friendly died, but I just said the heck with it and charged.  I crested a hill and it was perfect timing as I hit a guy right in the side.  Then I just TD-mode my way through for the High Calibre/Top Gun and... ah damn.  There was a friendly heavy tank I had forgotten about who had driven behind a bunker and went AFK for the rest of the game.

Defense map

 

Only have to stop the red team from killing ALL, or from capping to win.

 

Game mode is enabled in settings.

The additional options are:

Encounter

Assault/Defense

and that 30 vs 30 tier X thing.

 

I guess you're new to the game, I hope this helps

 

:great:

The idea of getting an "epic" medal for successfully hiding in a bush while the clock runs out is kind of offensive, to be honest.

I absolutely hate the other modes, so they've been turned off for a long time.
