you know that you obtain only 1 token for medal? Not second time. And this dont reset if you are in battle during server restart. Is need finish battle (not only leave to hangar) and exit game before 7AM to obtain medal reset.

 

Yes I know that, infect you got only 1 token for specifically medals in 24hours/day. When pass 24hours, infect next day you can get new token for same medal. I ve just played 2 games now in last probably 7days, so that should not be problem. Bug is in something else..

No token for Conqueror. Only 15 medal-related tokens per day: Akamatsu, McGuire, Lambert, Efimov, Doolitle (400 cap points for each class), then Thunder and Lang medal (Ground targets). Then u can get AceMarseille, or McCampbell. And also "special ones" as Golubev (3 rocket kills), Gabreski (10 planes, 7 GTs), Kožedub (Squall line 5 kills). + Winged legend and Hero of the sky. - together 15 tokens.

What I whitnessed, even though, u get only one token for each medal per day, kožedub sometimes works more that once. Probably also bug.

Ok thanks so no for Conqueror wasn t sure for that, but knew exactly which medals is worth for token before, now when dont work for me forgot :-) Anyway now I got very rare tokens for that medals, and when I got, do not see difference why I get that time and not day or 3 before when also should get...will try with that wowp cach file but think will stay same...

Thanks, I ve just checked, wowp_cache is different, it s; rmdir /S /Q "%temp%\wargaming.net\wowp". I will try that also! Anyway I try with this what you said and did not worked! Played 2 games, in one game won Akamatsu and McCampbell medals but got only 1 token, (4 got for Daily missions, that worked all time) did not got token for Akamatsu medal. Won also Conquare medal but forgot if you are rewarded with 1 token for that or not. In 2nd game I won Wing legend, Akamatsu again ( did not got token 1st time, so thought maybe will now) and Ace and got only token for Ace. Like that was before, I just get sometimes 1 token (not always like now in 2 games 2 tokens), but rest tokens for rest medals dont get..Now I got 2 tokens instead 4 or 5, that is same bug, still here..

 

Please mind that a token for an epic medal can be received once per day. Also, avoid battles around the server restar as it might cause problems with counter reset. If you haven't been awarded a token for your first epic achievement of the day please submit a ticket.

Never had an issue with battle around the server restart time (I tend to play in the morning before work) the only thing to remember, is if you have a battle which finishes at the restart time, all credits, tokens, first win of the day etc will be counted to the next/incoming day, not the day that the battle was started on.

Several players were destroyed and left the game. They don't even know they can respawn. Warganing... do you know what to do? There are many new players and you have to take care of them. 

 

I don't think it's always that they don't KNOW they can respawn, but they see little point in continuing to be the free kill for a sky full of specialized aircraft a tier higher than them.

 

I've been struggling to play on my US account all week. If you only have Tier 4 planes then you are essentially being up-tiered into Tier 5 spitfire battles every time. I had a run where 8 out of 9 battles I was up-tiered. Matchmaking is a joke. It doesn't take into account specialized aircraft so you regularly see obscene imbalance between teams. (5 specials vs none) You struggle to get a kill because everybody is faster and has better guns, you struggle to stay alive for more than 30 seconds because everybody absolutely has to get kills. I'm finding it hard to even grind pilots back to 100% and upgrade Tier 5 aircraft because I'm scoring so low. 

 

I've had plenty of games where once somebody latches onto you there is no point trying and might as well point the nose into the ground. 

 

So, if you have just managed to get your first Tier 4 plane and all you see all week is up-tiered battles where you face 5 specials while your own team has none (with sadly predictable results) is it any wonder people leave?

When I collected statistics of every battle I learned that only about 30-35% of the time tier IV aircraft were top tier.

Like you say, it actually does ; it tries to put them all in the same team !!

I still collect statistics of every battle and right now it's even less.

I said they had less than 50 battles. No, they didn't know they could respawn. They have gone up too fast to tier 5 - 6 that they don't know what to do yet.

it didn't matter whether I flew my F2A or my F4F, I was drawing nearly all bottom tier games, and flying the F4F with a zero skill pilot in T6 games was /not fun/.  I'm finally finished with these missions, and  break is needed.  I unlocked the F4F, Corsair, Yak-1, and Yak-1M, during this event.  Specced the F2A, Blenheim F, Boomerang, and I-17.  The Yak-1 is close to specialized, and would be if I came off the I-17 sooner.  Planes that I remembered liking from NA were most certainly unfun (I-17, Spit Ia, Boomerang) and planes that I hated on NA performed well (Yak-1).  I am glad to be finished with this.

Got mine today, had a battle in it, and was top tier, and won, felt pretty decent, grid wasn't too bad, the Brit win was a bit of a pain, the other were just nice to upgrade and move some aircraft nearer to specialist.

Brits : Win 30 games, with 5k personal points? Ultra hard.
Ruskis: Shot down 300 planes? Solid.
Yanks: Make 300k personal points? Solid.

It wasn't impossible; I did it in 3 days.  However, the 30 wins needed in British planes was indeed a nasty requirement and for those with limited time, this would have made the marathon difficult.

This reminds me the artwork restoration of this Paint , "Ecce Homo" : Behold the Man ( Latin words for Behold the Man, scourged Jesus Christ, bound and crowned with thorns, to a hostile crowd shortly before his Crucifixion ) initially made by Elías García Martínez (1858 - 1934) , totally botched and mangled by an octogenarian woman who received copyright royalties for this crual restoration ... (the church-owned Cope radio station persuaded her to donate the painting as part of its Christmas charity fundraising drive) .
