Not with the MM in the state that it is and the majority of teams being as trash as they are. Every game just feels like I'm being pushed miles and miles away from even a 2nd mark.

 

Trying with the VK 36.01H and god is it infuriating, these teams are so bad its unreal they make it impossible to do good in any match. The bad players are what ruins this game for me so much, just makes me rage so hard when I see braindead players in this game, I'm not good by a long shot by my goodness

 

absolutely ridiculous:angry:

Well if I can do it to 5 different tanks there's no reason you cant. You just have to make it work.

So... you're saying that your teams need to carry you to 2 marks ??   (Believe me, with your attitude, 3 marks are not in the cards at all)

3-Marking is all about sticking to your guns and keeping a level head...along with being patient. Also, use HE and go for tracking/assist damage. That helps significantly. I've 3-Marked 11 tanks and that's about how I've done it. You'll 3-Mark something....just keep at it!

Well, you won't 3 mark any tanks.   That's for sure.   You'll have to address your attitude and competency first.

I don't have any 3 marks yet, but I'm really close, and on my StuG III Ausf. G.   I got it to 94%, then back to 89% after some bad battles, then to 93%, back and forth lol.  So I know it can be frustrating.,  

 

Some may not want to hear it but when going for marks of excellence, sometimes you have to be a little greedy and selfish.  If you see quickly that your team is horrible and will lose quickly, depending on the tank you may find a good hiding spot and farm as much as you can after your team dies, or just find the best hull down or choke point where you can do the most damage when they come for you.  Don't try to help a useless situation and die early.  Then there's other times that you need to be super aggressive, your team is pushing hard and if you don't charge you'll miss all of the damage.  

 

Remember that it's only damage and assisted damage.  Getting kills doesn't raise it faster.  So if you're looking at 2 tanks and one has 20 hp and one has 500 hp, usually you get the kill, but if you're real close to marking your tank , get the damage.

 

Most of all, if MM seems to be screwing you it will even out a little eventually.  MM is better than is was before their last tweak.  You just have to play enough games in that one tank  and you'll find yourself as top tier enough times and you really have to take advantage of it.  

 

This is advice from a player with zero 3 marks to this point, but from what I've seen and how I've been increasing all of my tanks % it'll help I think.

Marks are not about the team, but more so about the player in the tank. 

 

Aim for a damage goal each match and try to hit that goal. 

 

Try to stay alive till the end while keeping your gun firing. You just need to figure out how to be the first into battle and the last to die.  This is tricky and takes a real feel for the flow of the battle on the map. 

 

Don't be afraid to run away and let teammates die if it looks like the side your on is going to get over run.  Get someplace safe you can cover your teammates from.

 

Don't be afraid to load the gold to make the shots you need to make.

 

Make sure you have the right equipment on the tank and a crew with at least one skill.

 

Don't worry about winning just worry about hitting your damage goal.

I will never 3 mark a tank, and it has nothing to do with MM or the playerbase.  I'm not consistent enough to 3 mark anything, even if I were capable of that type of performance in short bursts, which is a stretch in and of itself.

If anything being on bad teams should make it easier since you're such a god, you can reap all the red HP for yourself. I don't really care about stupid marks on my barrel but I did notice that my 304 was at 94.7 at one time so I tried for it and won 17 of 20 games but lost 4% because my teams were too good.

I have one MoE on Pz.V/IV which surprised me when I got it. I don't expect to get anymore and not because my teams suck. (which they don't) It's because I don't think that my performance is good enough to get anymore.

 

FYI OP; MoEs are based on your performance, not that of your team.

Also depends on the tank. Pick a "bad"/less popular tank (for example, KV-13). Such tanks in general are easier to mark than "good" tanks because better players like to use them thus raising the bar for marking.

AS someone on the heel of 3rd marking multiple tanks- all you gotta do is keep a level head. Do your HPs worth of damage and then some- and some more. Just keep at it. Play it until you start droping percentage in it, then let it sit for the evening. Its totally possible, trust me- if a drunkard that only plays on friday nights can three-mark a tank- you can too.

Wouldn't a braindead player base drive the expected numbers down, making it easier for an ubermensch like you to get there?

I probably won't get a lot of marks because I don't stay in tanks for very long. I'm still feeling my way through different lines, got a mark on the IS-M of all things, that was a surprise, but Tier VIII waits for no man.
