So two games in a row catching tanks on fire and not a single arsonist medal. I know this game is broken but what the hell.

Did you destroy the tanks with the fire? or just set them on fire.  That might be the problem.

You only help your team mates, because they cannot be shot at, if they are dead.

To get the arsonist medal, You must destroy it by fire. Not just set it on fire. Chances are you or someone else, Is shooting them for the kill.

BTW, there is no such thing as “your kill”.  There are so many reasons just to kill the red at the first available opportunity, after all it’s a team game, and you get more XP for damage than the kill shot itself.   
 

If someone helps me kill a red, I usually send them a “awesome”, as it usually means we survive and perhaps with more hit points left than would have otherwise been the case.

Hahahaha!

 

Are you serious?  Name one game where it's "your kill" before the enemy is dead.  

 

I love it when people get possessive about almost dead red players.  It's funny every time.

As long as they are playing and not just sitting back waiting till the tank is killable then shooting it's fine. I don't care too much about the kill, but losing because people are not shooting till the kill is available is just not good for gameplay.

I used to believe this but am not so sure any more. I think kills generate more XP than just about any other single thing besides maybe winning the match. I am almost willing to bet more XP is generated by hitting a Red for lets say 50 Health and getting the kill than hitting the red for 350 health and not getting the kill. I would love to lose the bet though.

There is kill stealing. I don't know why people deny it but it is a thing. It really doesn't bother me unless I am one away from a Radley's (happened a few times) or needing kills for an OP (usually why people steal kills). Biggest kill stealer in the game though is the game its self. How many time have you taken a Red down to nothing only to have the next few kill shots bounce or just miss and then either some one else finishes it off for you or it kills you. Yep it's lovely when that happens.

So nobody is supposed to help you if you are fighting against an enemy tank?

Maybe they are on a contract where they need to kill X tanks. You are on one where you need an arsonist medal. Personally, I call it out  at the start of the game if I am after a certain medal. Use a Mike. My WR% went up by 3-4 points after I started using one

True, if my gun is big enough and the Reds health is low enough for a non Pen HE shot. I do it all the time. One of the reasons I always carry a few HE rounds.

To be honest just play the game as normal which is to win and the best way to win is to kill tanks.

 

In my experience when you are only trying for a specific medal they become harder to get because you change how you play.

 

Playing as normal will also mean you will probably win more games which means more rewards.

 

There is also no such thing as your kill....the quickest way to victory to remove as many enemy guns from the game as quickly as possible.

 

Too many times you see a low health tank survive and go on to play a pivotal role. If its red and you  can shoot it, kill it.

The hardest part about the arson medal for me is that it always seems to leave them with a sliver of health.
As far as kill stealing, Again for me it is a steal when someone follows you around doing nothing, not a single shot fired until the kill shot. That does happen. That person is a kill stealer. I am fully on board that if it’s alive please shoot it before it shoots you or me.
The game gets to me sometimes and I shut it off and walk away. Crazy how a game can get us so worked up.

Would agree with you if you're in a single shot gun. 

But when you're in autoloader with two shells in mag left... no chance for a quick reload. :( There's no reason for RNG to take your kill away, but it happens more often then not for me.

Used to bother me a lot before, now I just move on, it's a game, right? :)

Ok, I’m going to be nice...but I’m sooooo damn tired of hearing on message boards, in game chat, FB people whining about their kills being stolen. It’s simple!!! When I play I put as much lead down range as quickly as possible on targets. That’s it, that is all...it’s that simple. I never steal shite. If I get a frag great, if not I couldn’t care less. It’s about damage, tracked, assisted whatever. I was in a game the night before last and via comms this guy was calling me a piece of shite, a moron, and several other colorful adjectives. Claimed I kept stealing “his” kills. It’s about damage for the last time already.
