I try to do the machine contract . As you can see in this game I fired 22 shots 21 hit the target. The second highest fired number of shots in my team was 10. I did not get the sniper medal. WG could you please explain this?

Maybe someone on the reds did better? Afaik it's only one sniper medal per game, not per team.

Someone on the red had over 10 shots and hit 100% more likely than not.

You only get one sniper medal per game; not per team

On the red team the highest number of shots fired was 15 with only 6 direct hits which is not even higher than mine but the hit ratio was also below the 85%.

Have a look at all the players, it doesn't matter who has the most shots fired, only that they fired a minimum of 10 rounds with 1000 potential damage.

and 85% Accuracy. If you have 19/20 but another player has 10/10 the 10 player wins as got 100% Accuracy.

This correct only one sniper medal per game, so you not only have to be better than the rest of your team, you have to be better than all of the red team. I had the same issue while doing that part of the Machine contract. It is  the only time I ever care about getting a sniper medal, so I was watching very carefully each match to see if I made it.

I think they could just add a few words to the explanation of the sniper medal to make it clearer about what you have to do.

Agree - the tie breaker only comes into play when the ratios are same.

 

Achieve at least 85% hits out of a minimum of 10 shots fired with potential damage of 1,000 HP or more. Non-penetrating hits count. If two or more tankers have equal hit ratios, the award is given to the tanker with the highest number of hits.

I heard of a dodgy strategy on sniper medals; concentrate only on your first 10 shots, and hit all (100% accuracy) about over 1k dmg, then get yourself killed at that point. Dodgy though eh?

Only problem with that is if someone else is concentrating on getting 11 of 11.  When I was getting the Sniper medals done for the contract, I finished one match with 15 of 15 only to not get the sniper medal because someone did 17 of 17, and later I did 20 of 20 and looked through and some poor dude had done 19 of 19 and didn't get the medal.  Kind of felt bad for that player honestly.

I think the problem here is that Medal description and end game stats are somehow missleading.

I made a few screenshots when i was doing 4 sniper medals for Machine contract and was amazed why game deny to give me the medal with such hit ratio.

But after i analized few replays of games which suppose to bring me sniper medal with both negative and positive result i come to conclution that end game stats basicaly misleading the player.

When you look at your total shots made and total ammount of hits this Include hitting tracks (with no damage dealt), cannon hits or shots absorbed by spaced armour or "screens".

But the actual "Accuracy" calculation EXCLUDE above said shots from the formula. And here comes the frustration.

I guess it's because when your shot are beeing "absorbed" it doesnt count as a "potential damage" or basicaly counts as a miss.

Screens below is a results of 3 games with pretty decent hit ratio. But none of this games bring me Sniper medal.

Spoiler

There is nothing about this in Medal description. I dont think it work like that.
