Okay I just discovered there is a damn medal named Dumitru's Medal which is kill 3 SPGs in a match.

 

Before Pascucci's medal was nerfed from 3 spg kills in a match to 2 spg kills in a match, and dunno how long until Dumitru medal were added in, so my 3 spg kills was not accounted? What the hell? 

 

I know those are JUST medals, they're meaningless but come on. I can't even remember how lucky/skillful I was to kill 3 spg in a match.

The chronic changes, especially in arty, has ruined the game. To the point, I am thinking it sucks. I know adapt or die is needed in the game but many of their adaptations have ruined the game. Low-cost premium, wheelies, arty nerfing, etc.

Are you certain that you got the killing shot on all 3? Shells from different tanks can (and do) hit the same target simultaneously. 

A replay would help.

i think you are saying you had a 3 spg kill match LONG ago that never got the dumitru medal? dumitru used to need 4 spgs for the medal,i think.

 

edit;the SPG kill medals all were lowered by 1 SPG when that re tiering occured pascuccis used to be 3,dumitrus was 4 and burdas was 5 SPG.back in 2017 the requirements were lowered. i may have misinterpreted what you were saying,if so , sorry!

Dumitru’s existed before the change. It used to be awarded for killing 4 SPGs but was changed at the same time Pascucci’s medal was.

No, before Pascucci's medal was nerfed, I took out 3 artys per match for medal but it was lowered to 2.

 

I was not aware of Dumitru medal, was it also in 2014/2015 too?

No need for replay, the Pascucci medal (before it was nerfed), was awarded for taking out 3 artys in a match, I know this because I got that award. But now, I do not know how much 3-arty I took out anymore.

What he's referring to is before they changed the medals Pascucci's was for 3 SPG kills, Dumitru's for 4 and Burda's was for 5 and Tamada's from 3 to 2 for light tanks killing SPGs.  Now they've all been lowered by one and if you have the old medals they've essentially been watered down.

 

Same as Oskin's, Orlik's and a handful of others.

 

What they should have done was put them in "Special" medals at the bottom of your awards page with an explanation of the change and which patch like they've done for others like the old Sniper, Bolter's and other medals.

 

Edit:  Fixed Burda's old count. :P

Not sure when it was added, but it was definitely part of the changed awards in...

 

...off to multi-tab....

 

9.18 it seems. 

 

Found this, but I don't think this is all of the changes.  Again not sure when those were added, but I know some stuff was added prior to these changes as well.

I have a ton of both. I guess they are cool. Bonds are better and they are stingy as hell with them.

I have 53 Pascucci's Medals and 6 Dumitru's Medals. My real pride is that 2 of those Dumitru's Medals were earned back when you had to kill 4 SPGs to get it. Made it all the more worthwhile. :medal:


 

EDIT: I got one of those Dumitru's in the M4 Improved. Shot right past enemy lines and partook in artillery scum tears. Their unfettered rage at their team for letting an M4 Improved through the lines was even more rewarding.

Although I revere the old medal symbolism; due to the revised limits on SPGs (down to 3 per match and limited platooning), the MM, "Scout" MM, Map changes, and Light tank class changed significantly (extended twice).  I tend to still believe the "new" medals are comparable if not harder. 

 

No, they don't have the same numbers as the old medals but they do have a similar difficulty in a different meta...
 

Pascucci's - Old (3 of 5), New (2 of 3) SPG kills,
Dumitru's - Old (4 of 5), New (3 of 3) SPG kills,

Burda's - Old (5 of 5), New (3 of 3) but all must be one tier higher SPG kills,

Tamada's Old (3 of 5) in a light tank, New (2 of 3) in a light tank but both must be one tier higher SPG kills,

YMMV but I expect the medal reward rate actually went down post 9.18 due to the changes...
