I seriously thought you had to kill at least 5 tanks alone and win the battle, to get the Kolobanov's Medal.

you only  have to be the last tank standing against 5 remaining tanks HUH? well I think that's cheap!! the only reason I won is they couldn't pen me enough to kill me before the end of battle. So, I don't want the medal. all my other KB medals I killed 5 or more tanks by myself, now that's deserving !!:mellow:

What an odd bug. I've never seen medals handed out like that before. Might want to file this in the bug reports section.

Assault. Defending team wins if they survive till the timer runs out. So you can get a Kolobanovs medal that way.

Ehhhhhhh? That sounds completely broken and not working as it should be to me. Unbelievable if intentional. Talk about cheapening one of the rarest and hardest medals to get. Should totally be a bug. I don't see how it's there otherwise.

Is this sarcasm? Its not a bug. You simply have to stand alone vs 5 reds and win. Its in the description. 

 

I've got 3. 

1. Killing the 5 remaining reds. 

2. Capturing the flag when 7 reds were still alive. 

3. Denying the reds a base capture on Assault - just like the op. 

 

Obviously getting #1 is the best type of victory. But a Kolobanovs is always worth celebrating imo.

You also earn the medal if you capture the enemy base in a 1v5+ situation, or if you win in a 1v1 (that was previously a 1v5) from time running out in standard and team destruction battles. This is because the only requirements for a Kolobanov's medal are winning the game as the last player on your team alive against five or more enemies, so how you win doesn't matter.

Totally not sarcasm. All the Kolybanov videos I've seen involve killing so that's why I'm surprised. Still, I don't feel it should be a thing to allow #2 and #3 to apply now that's been explained to me. Personal opinion.

I got my 3 Kolobanov's from killing 5 reds while being the last green standing. I prefer my Kolobanov's to getting them from capping or stopping the reds from capturing a base.:medal:

Amen brother! As it should be. None of those other reasons. Wargaming should really change the requirements to involve kills only.

Must have be a great hidden place if the time expired OP.

The requirements for Kolobanov's medals are mostly fine as they are, and the only requirement (or lack thereof) I don't like is the fact that you can earn a Kolobanov's medal at any tier (including tiers I-III), where it should really be limited to tier V and higher matches.

Reds probably didn't realise it was gbsman so didn't check behind the base...

I earned one in a tier IX light tank vs 3 heavies and Two Mediums on Ardennes Assault. Several of the reds started to cap out but I guess they thought it was better to chase me down. Managed to kill one of the medium tanks that was chasing me, no way I had the fire power, health, or time left on the clock to take out the remaining reds.

 

Assault is simple, either capture the enemy base or kill all the enemy tanks. They didn't do either. I benefited from the fact that there was 5 of them vs 1 of me.

second one i won properly.. chewed gum and kicked [edited]... 7 kills loads of other medals,
