With the never ending introduction of new premiums and reskins as well as Tech Tree lines into the game do you ever think you'll get the Master Tanker Honorary Rank?  If you already had it, once upon a time, are you mad that it's constantly taken away from you?  Or do you cherish the challenge of hunting down new tanks to get that golden carrot dangled in front of you constantly, Master Tanker?!

I’ll never get it, nor do I care.  Probably have more respect for a Pool’s Medal than the Master Tanker...

I know right. Even when you get close they release new premium tanks, in some cases so rare or that don't sell that much that you won't see them in the battlefield enough to have a chance of destroying them.  And then there are the paint job versions and non-cammo versions (Defender/ Object 252U to name a recent one). The list will be endless.:trollface:

I don't think premiums count towards it.

Still need 6.5 million xp to get it. I'm doing what I can to get every tank in the game. Events like this past weekend make it a possibility. It's a challenge that I want to earn without bypassing any tank with free xp.

Yes they do.  If you go to https://wotfrags.pythonanywhere.com/ it'll give you a list of Tech Tree and Premium tanks you need to get Master Tanker.

A couple of months ago I only had 20 Tech Tree and 9 premium tanks I hadn't destroyed.  Now I have 12 premium tanks left and that's not counting the new King Dragon and the recently introduced Alpine Tiger, Yazi TD, Object 252U and T26E5.

No.  This is not a rank you get by researching all tanks in all Tech Trees, that's Senior Technical Engineer.  This is a rank you achieve if you destroy every tank in the game.

I think that info is false.

I'm an idiot. I blame my phone. Yeah, I like to get the kill medals too. It's really not too big of a deal so long as you don't miss any low tier tanks when they come out. If you do, good luck finding it.

Of course I'll get more Master Tanker badges. I already have 48 tanks with "M" and some of them with many "M"-s. Yeah - lately it's tougher but I'm not giving up. And - yeah... some Epic medals are usually better.

No no, this post is not about the Ace Mastery badge.  Those are just individual achievements per tank based on comparative XP earned in one battle.  Master Tanker is obtained only when a player has destroyed at least one of all existing tanks in the game.  My question is that with the never ending release of "new" premium tanks and addition of tech tree lines, is this an achievable goal?

Don't think I will ever get it I only have 3 TT left all tier x both swedes and the Chinese lt but premiums there's 24 of which a lot are HMH or black edition plus a lot of the combat car variants. Personally I think premiums should be excluded especially as they keep adding new ones then reskinning those to create a new vehicle.

Seriously - it's an easy target - just play more if you can't get it.

Agree! New premiums come out every month and some are rarely seen on the battlefield!

Do you have Master Tanker?  You can play all you want but if new tanks are added you lose the rank until you destroy those.

I've had it a couple of times. I don't pursue it. It comes naturally when you play as much as I do.

Was down to 4 the blah blah 103b, AMX 30B and the Sheridan along with a Chinese light I think. So I'll have a few more to get still not that bad.

Premiums do NOT count against the award. I had it until the new TDs appeared and I'm still missing a few of the more rare premiums...

 

EDIT: Actually my stats page shows it as still completed but I'm definitely missing the new chinese TDs and the frag page shows im missing a pair of Tier X light tanks...aren't you supposed to lose masteries as tanks are added?

 

Getting new TT tanks is really simple. When a new line is released you play the tier you need to kill until you get the kill. You have to do this until at least tier 5 or risk leaving a low tier kill to the fates later... If you care about this award don't just skip passed them with free xp or if you are done.

 

The higher tiers are easier to get in the long run without as much worry as the higher xp requirement will have them on the battlefield longer.

 

For people coming into the game later I imagine it can get tricky to check off some of the older more rare tanks.

When a person resorts to attacking the other person rather than focusing on the issue (aka argumentum ad hominem), it becomes pretty clear they have nothing else to contribute and are wrong.
