The last tank I 3 marked was the M6 and that was because the requirements dropped since the last time I played it. I had it 2 marked for a while and parked it for a few months. Played a game where I got just under 400 combined damage and got the final mark.

 

This time, I was going to clear out my garage to make room for some new Soviet tanks while the discounts were active. I chose the KV-85 since I haven't used it in about 6 months. While taking it out for the 2x daily XP bonus, I noticed that I was at 91% MOE standing. So I figured, let's see how hard it would be to get the 3rd mark. Well, it was a lot harder than I expected. 73 battles, 40 wins, appoximately 2 days, numerous bottom tier games where I barely managed doing 300 damage, many blowout wins and losses that limited my damage dealt, arty that like to pick on bottom tier targets, the usual RNG shenanigans, 3 Ace Masteries, and a Radley Walters medal.

 

The game where I finally pushed over 95% was a mini 7-on-7 game. So overall potential damage was lower. Thanks, WG for making it harder than it should have been. 3 minutes in the queue for this setup? Fix the damn matchmaker!

 

 

I was about to stop trying for it since I was getting tired and my shots and maneuvering were getting sloppy. That shot at 2:33? :facepalm:

 

And as a bonus, here's the game where I somehow got a Radley's.

 

 

Fun fact: I completed 95% of the WG Anniversary Ops using the KV-85.

 

That's it for me! No more 3 marks unless it's by accident!

Congrats man,I'm currently trying to 3 mark the ELC at tier 5.It can  be very team dependent,..to say the least.

I've given up on three-marking tanks solely because of the ELC EVEN 90. I wanted to earn three MOEs on it since it's my favorite tank in the game, but in order to do so you have to play the Vanguard completely wrong, spam premium ammo, and get extremely lucky with both maps and teams for a ton of games.

That said, congrats on earning three MOEs in the KV-85!

Thanks. Good luck on the ELC. With the amount of city maps I see when I run lights, I feel you'll need all tge help you can.

Thanks. I had to resist the temptation of playing the KV-85 wrong, like trying to spot targets like a light or medium, especially since it's a blind Soviet heavy. Or use it like a potato and snipe at the back like a TD. I still had to use a lot of premium ammo and use food for good measure. At least most of the food was free from these earn ops.

back when it had scout MM it only took like 1,200-1,500 combined to 100% damage standing. That’s probably gone down now that it is a shell of itself. Good luck.

Lights tanks need rebalanced(again)

​Update 4.2 and 4.6 were terrible

I have a huge backlog of tanks I want to 3 mark but I never have the time.

I'm not stealing kills, I'm handing out Confederate medals.

Yeah the Vanguard's going to be a tough one, I'm gonna need to get a bit lucky on that too one I think.

I've given up on it entirely. A 3k combined damage game will only move the percentage up by about 0.2% once you're at 85% or higher, so you basically have to earn 3-5k combined damage every single match for about 40-50 games in a row (while using a tank with just 1.1k DPM, bad gun handling, and only 900 health). All in all after you get to two marks you have to get extremely lucky with maps and teams for an absurdly long streak while also doing well in each game (especially since one bad match can lower your percentage by a full percent), and during this time you also can't afford to play the EVEN 90 in any way but as a cautious scout and as a very opportunistic assassin (which means you can't enjoy the tank normally during the grind either).

I like the tank a lot but don't play it too much at the minute, I don't usually try to get the 3rd mark on a tank until I get close so I haven't tried with it yet. I kind of guessed it would be a pain though, my progress so far hasn't been all that great, I'm not far off my second mark at the minute IIRC.

You must play at weird times when the server population is low. That's not the match makings fault. I don't think I've ever had to wait anywhere near 3 minutes for a battle.

 

Other than that. GG's!:honoring:

I don't even try playing for marks. I rarely play 1 tank for more than a few games in a row, then I'll leave it for a few weeks before using it again, meaning the moe% increase I got in those 4 games it  has dropped back again. The only tank I did actively grind MoE on was the Tiger 1 which I got too 100% then never touched it again.

 

I'm close to 3 marking the E5 as that jumped to around 91 percent when I rebought it but I know that I'd have a few bad games and get annoyed if I tried going for the 3rd, so trying to just forget it had any MOE on it.

I wish I could stop myself from looking at my damage standing, I'd 3 mark so many more tanks. I check after each game and every time I see I'm getting close to a 3rd mark I forget how to play and mess it all up, I got my E50M to 94.97% everything was going great until I noticed how close I was, then I went full potato so no 3rd mark for me yet lol.

Preach!

 

Same here. Best idea would be to not check the standing... but if you're so close, how can you not...?

What you said here is exactly the reason I had to 3-mark the Lycan 4 or 5 times, cause every time I got close to 95% I would screw it up only to drop significantly and start the whole process again. In the end, totally worth it though. Gorgeous Joe looks magnificent with those three barrel stars. :)

Thought about trying to do it for some tanks but with how bad teams, MM and RNG is. 3MoEs aren't really worth it. Got my IS-7 to 94 and of course the next game i get [edited]on by the most fun MM and tanks. real not worth it anymore.

I haven't ever tried for MOE's after reading about the difficulty here.  One thing that is crazy, but true....how do you check the damage standings?
I'm just saying.....
