1,811 Base EXP. Kolobanov's, Radley Walters's, Pascucci's, and a whole host of other medals. And YES, that game was my first Ace game. Unreal. Anyway, you all can probably see what tank I am aiming to 3-Mark next..... ;)


 

EDIT: Yesterday, a 1,450 Base EXP game was a 1st Class by the way. So....indeed, this is what it takes.

The T14 was my first 3 mark.  Like, the first week MOEs became a thing.  I'm surprised it took that much base exp, my old girl has been a garage queen for many, many years now.

HT.No.VI was my first one. I still use her every now and then. :)

First Ace in the T14. Can't believe that it took THAT much of a game to get it.

You probably made way over the amount required for Mastery.

 

Edit:

If a 1st Class was 1450 then maybe it's that high.

My first premium was a t34-85m and I haven't marked it yet, at least not a second mark. That's because I earned the Japanese tiger then the dicker, then the lowe, then the t34b and is6b and I just kind of spaced out for years. I do have a Churchill 3 with 2 marks

Cool game, I liked how you used HE against the T67 and arty effectively.

 

But as with most ace tankers, what makes them possible is the combination of great play with lackluster opposition...

 

  • T14 could have damaged you if he had loaded premium, yet he kept firing standard AP and bouncing again and again
  • Stug IV could have penned you in the side with premium as you were advancing
  • PzIV derp could have penned your frontal plate with HEAT and one-shotted you as he was above you negating the angling...
  • 3 artillery never fired at you the whole game despite being in the open most of the game
  • 3 artillery did not coordinate and outcap you at the end.

 

Anyways, awesome game ;)

Thanks! I love 75mm HE...rapid-firing and good damage for the caliber, and I use it on the M4 Improved as well. And yeah, their team could have taken me out easily....but no teamplay, as my friend Einstein would say. So...medals for me! :medal:

Yep! 3-Marking odd stuff is my favorite pastime! :P And yeah....I would bet 1550+ is the Base EXP cutoff for an Ace, which is nuts for a tier 5 tank. :amazed: Thanks, james!

ace mastery and 3 marking a tank is pretty much more about who else plays the tank all the time then how well you played ..

 

take churchill gc no one plays it so is pretty easy as most people are grinding it and have poor crews and not upgraded

 

if you have a top ten clan that uses that tank baby seal clubbing daily then you are dealing with non stop unicums spamming gold as well as illegal modpacks (sold to them by the game itself ) then for normal players pretty much impossible

 

pretty sure their are websites that log the tanks and can tell you what is needed for ace and 3 marks daily and you can simply look at the numbers and pick a tank you have with a crew that can reach that goal

 

one last thing if the requirements change in a few days and you keep playing the tank your MOE progress can actually go up as more bad players play it and the curve changes .. a lot of my MOE marks magically appeared one day because of that

The bar for Ace tanker is probably a lot lower than that. I haven't seen a T14 being played in a long time. It's easier to get Ace tanker in vehicles that people don't play anymore.

So, a 1,457 Base EXP game is an Ace. Just a really good battle with too much APCR spam on my part. :facepalm: Still, that is probably barely inside Ace range, which is nuts. Again, 2 days ago, 1,450 was only a 1st Class.

I still prefer the 1st Ace battle...THAT one was something special.

I'm not sure where to begin with this one, so I'll summarize with "wrong"
