Howdy! I've noticed tanks with barrel bands on the gun tube. What does that signify?

Marks of Excellence, if you do good (better than a certain percent of the playerbase) you get one from Tier 5 and up.

Like the guy above me said, they are MOE's. The first one is just a participation medal. The second one is where you start to get good at the tank, and the third one is where the real hardness kicks in. They go 65, 85, 95%.

From your garage, Service Record --> Vehicles --> Awards

 

You can keep track of your progress for MoE that way. 1st mark is for playing a tank better than 65% of the player base within a 2 week period. 2nd mark is 85% and 3rd is 95%. It's based on damage (your own and assisted).

Thanks folks! I thought it might have to do with the number of kills a tank had but y'all have cleared that up. Thanks again! :honoring:

The other way to get them is to be in the top 3 of damage on a team that completely fails on the deployment and then collapses.  I've earned about 6 of those tonight.

Signifies someone's been shopping on Ebay. Just search for "World of Tanks No Code" and you'll find all the MOE's you could ever ask for... :coin:

Wait, people actually pay for marks?   What's the point and where's the fun in that?

I can only DREAM at this point of Two Marking ANYTHING.  I have most of my T5 tanks Mastered (Ace) and a goodly number of them are in the One Mark range.

 

I know someone called it a participation award, but if you realize the average server stats show the player base at an average of a 49% WR, then the actuality of playing better than 65% of the people using that tank in the last two weeks isn't that easy, either, honestly -- not for the majority of us players.

 

So I'm PROUD of One Marking the tanks I have.  I figure I'll have to be a very steady 54%+ player with a much better WN8 before I manage Two Marking any of my tanks.  To Three Mark any of them would be like -- flying to the sun without burning a wing, to lie in the meadow and hear the grass sing.  In short, "To Dream, the Impossible Dream..." in that regard.  At least for me.

 

Take what you can and be proud of getting that far.  This game is NOT that easy that One Marking is "only" a participation trophy.  I've scanned many a player profile and there are a plethora of folks that haven't One Marked a thing and haven't Aced more than 3% of their total tanks played.

 

 

It's better than NOT One Marking a tank.
