Has anyone else had issues receiving rewards for merit lately?  I have been paying close attention since I need 1 universal blueprint to make a new fragment, and have played 10 battles with various tanks and didn't receive a reward.  Then I tried 5 battles with the same tank, still nothing.   On the post game action report it shows the "present" with all 5 highlighted but I haven't received it yet.  I've won 5 games to see if that mattered and still no reward.  Has anyone else had similar issues?

Higher tier play increases the odds/increases the invisible counter....

I never understood the scale they use for it. I'll carry 1 game and nothing. Then another ill do ok at best and get one. Ill win and nothing and lose while doing worse and get one. 

 

Theres no standard to it. Its all rng

You are wrongly assuming that a reward for merit would be awarded for doing something meritorious. That's just crazy thinking.  What it means in WG speak is "random RNG based prize for clicking the battle button."

its random to be awarded - doesn't gaurentee after 10 games you get one --- that is your assumption which is wrong

I personally think it's programmed wrong. I have gotten more from crap battles. Never got one from a great battle. And sometimes get one after meh battles.

 

So, try to have a fail battle and see if it pops.

It has nothing to do with how well you play, it's purely about number of battles.  After the minimum number of games is met, it does a roll to see if you get one or not.  The odds increase for each battle played after the threshold is met.

This is how WG presented it:

 

  • They are awarded somewhat randomly
  • The better your "personal effectiveness", the higher your probability.
  • Your probability grows over battles, so each battle you are more likely to get one until you get one, and it resets.

 

If that is correct, there is no direct link to the battle performance when you got it, and getting it, but you should get them more often if you perform well vs performing poorly.

 

Also, WG claims that breaking the rules will prevent your odds from increasing...they use the example of deserting in battle or killing a team mate.

I have no doubts that there is a random threshold setup in the programming, but I still think it's programmed wonky to reward more on bad battle results than on good ones.

If you click on the after-battle lock it explains how they are awarded, and I could have sworn it said you'll get a reward randomly, but at a minimum after the 5th battle.  Am I wrong in interpreting that?

its a "Random Prize for Participation". WG sees the word "merit" in a somewhat skewed way from how many would use that word.

Clearly very random, and sometimes the RNG hoses you. You need to be in Tier 5 or higher, of course. The description says you earn it for "personal effectiveness in battle, no matter whether it was a winning or losing fight". Well, I've been stuck at the "very high" probability for 3 days now. I don't play much, about 15 per day. But I get various achievements/awards in half of those, and I'm playing the requisite tiers. But still nada after 3 days. I hadn't played WoT in 18 months, and the funny thing was that I got one after my very first game the other day. Now it's a long dry spell. I guess I will just be thrilled out of my gourd when I finally get another one.

Are they really that rare? I get the full set every day. I only play 20-30 battles usually.

Like I said earlier... VERY random. Played 12 games today, finally got another award. Then yet another 2 missions later. None for days, then 2 in 3 missions. RNGs are a mystical thing.
