Source: http://worldoftanks.ru/ru/news/1/9_1_mark/ Hello everyone, here is the EU post for the “Marks of Excellence” – basically, kill rings. Since I don’t see it in the EU post, I will add the conditions required for them from the Russian one. Basically, it is explained on the Russian site that tank kills aren’t always an objective measure of players quality and that in order to judge the quality, other indicators have to be considered: average XP per battle and average damage per battle. XP is already counted within the mastery badges and so the devs have chosen to use the average damage. Kill marks are recieved for doing more average damage per battle on that respective vehicle than other players: - 1 mark: more than 65 percent of players - 2 marks: more than 75 percent of players - 3 marks: more than 95 percent of players Light tanks can achieve them as well, as for the purposes of marks, damage done by other tanks from your scouting counts towards this damage as well. The battles count only from patch 9.1 onwards (won’t be awarded retroactively). The statistics are collected on daily basis. The battles taken into account are the last player session and not from ALL the battles since 9.1. Marks are awarded only in random battles and only for tier 5 and higher vehicles. Furthermore, the players will be able to see their standings in the Achievement window. If your statistics drop, the kill marks will not be removed (just like a mastery badge). These marks can be disabled in settings.
