Ok so stage 5 of the Chisel requires 2 high cals. Im 1 of 2 should have been 2 of 2 already. My rant is and some will agree some wont, but in T110E5 i had matches with 8,000 damage done, next person on either team 3k maybe. Sure easy high caliber, nope didnt get one because my teammates ram my tank or stop to shoot as i fired hitting there tank, mainly the ramming of the two tanks. Why does this stop me from getting a high cal. I really want to know, please explain if you can.

WG should change things. Why take a HC award from a person doing the real work just because a fool is ramming his own team? If WG isn't going to change the way the HC is awarded then it shouldn't be part of contract requirements.

You sure you met the 20% requirements?

 

I have video of me ramming into another green at full speed yet I still got a high caliber. 

 

I’m  almost positive Max said the friendly damage part is turned off on console.

I mean 8k damage is more then enough to get a high cal easy, but since somebody rammed me i lost it oh and an m103 died behind me blocking my escape, i didnt see that so i ran into his dead tank. Not really sure if that counts but after that match i was like surely thatd be 2 of 2, nope.

i dont think friendly tank contact negates the High Caliber.

 

shooting your team mates might.

 

i got my second High Caliber today. the match was tense & in the heat of the battle i bumped 2 tanks, one of them twice. all three times were collisions strong enough to have done damage if they had been red tanks.

 

at least for bumping your teammates tank, i dont think it stops you from getting a high caliber.

Could be, but the medal still claims the need not to hit fellow greens and I don't recall Max or anyone speaking for WG coming straight out and saying clearly 'Contact between team members will not prevent awarding of H/C'. So, why does WG not update the requirements listed if contact is not a problem?

My recommendation is go to the European server when they are all in bed, and you will usually only see 7 enemy tanks in a team. Use a preferential matchmaking tank... Super Pershing and or the Mutant. After struggling for days... I had my High Calibers done in 2 hours using this plan.

So you don't have a Mutant or Super Pershing?

Which tanks are more inclined to getting a matchup that will stand up to the task of 20% of the enimies dmg?

while this sounds like good advice, everyone follows it, so the EU servers are just full of people from NA when the Eros are in bed. Would get maybe 1/3 7v7 for T10 while trying to do this over the lasr week.  The +-1 MM was more of a help for playing T8

Struggled with HC for almost 2 weeks on the Chisel.  Had a little time and read this thread at break last night during work.

got home at 2:30am eastern. Jumped on NA server.  7v7 top tier in my T32-A.  High caliber with 3 k damage.

2 hours later a 15v15. Top tier with a lot of 7’s and 6’s.  Another HC. Little over 3k damage.

 

Thank you guys for the advice to log in during normal peoples sleep time.

I forgot the Mutant had preferential MM.  The HC I got so far was in a T25 Pilot Number 1!

I just completed the high cal portion yesterday for stage 5!  Was in the chieftain for the first and the Tier 8 T32 American heavy for the second.  Just have to focus on the spotting now.  
 

whish you well on completing the stages.  Looks like another crazy perfectly balanced tank

It's frustrating but if in that 8k damage game u had enemy tanks like a couple Maus and E 100 type 5 for example then that 20% of enemy hit points in damage delt could have been more like 10k or more. I got both my HC in my T34 one game 5500 and the other 5000. As this game is controlled by the match making its just a roll of the dice to weather u get it
