No idea. When I went into the recruiting station and put Cat0200 in, it gave me this reply:

Well, I'm in finally. First day today, but Wallybob was already taken, so Wallybobber is running around in a Tier 1 German light tank....interesting, and trying to use the terrain like they taught me at Fort Knox all those years ago....

Confirmed: if you have six kills, then kill a cowardly, useless friendly and it says you now are only credited with 5 kills - you still get the Top Gun award.

I just had to see if it worked, and when I found our no-kill M10 backing up to block me ... I shot him.

Also shot a tier 1 tank some smelly turd-sniffer decided to bring to a tier 8 match last night. He claimed it was out team's "mascot" ... I claimed it hurt our team to take up a useful slot with a tier 1. This is what my last clan, and believe my current clan's, rule is on people who hurt their team by platooning in uselessly low tier tanks. Is it wrong?

When I was new to the game I used to think it humorous... now, with as bad as teams are, not so much.

Welcome Wallybob!
There was a theory floating around that since the MM uses Tank weight tin it's calc, bringing in a small tank would allow all the rest to be bigger.

I don't buy it.

My understanding is that you can have a 'mascot' that is designated in calling the battle, player is designated to pay attention to the minimap and observe the whole battle as it occurs and giving out orders to the participants on a constant basis.

Playing a tier 1 tank to fill up the tank company tier count when the rest of the team stack up to be 59 (with the limit of total tier being 60 for medium tank company), a deputy commander in training who needs to focus on learning the skill of calling battles as a whole can do so without driving a tier 6 to contribute to battle thru out..

Better yet, some time I see the designated 'mascot' being the fast moving scout tier 2 scout that die quickly in battle then go into post-mortem mode, toddle thru the remain living teammates that remain in battle to call out orders.. it could be an effective stradigy.

I have had this happen more then a few times...but they seem to use me as cover....then will not backup, but push me forward. I was even told that their tank was too expensive to repair and they had to use me as cover....I told the bad guys where that guy was, and made a note of his id just incase I come across him again....I was that pissed. I mean really...I suck at this but to keep me from backing up and pushing me into the line of fire because you dont' want your tiger II to get dented.

I also had another guy shoot me right after start because he ran into me. Then told me I did not know my place. You don't tell that to a stug mounting the big gun...it will do nasty things to your PZiv.

In the beach map last night, I forget the name of it, I was in the Pz4. Me an M7MT, and an M10 ran down the beach got a few kills and stormed the cap. I noticed a red team KV-1 was following us but never got in place for a shot, I stuck close to the wall to ambush him as he came on to the cappers. Some dickhead in a Stug was shooting me. I thought it was a red team Stug, but didn't see him. Wasn't enough time to go around and shoot him in the back.

I just spent some time platooning with Cat.....wow, it's amazing what happens when you have your own personal arty support. I set up the targets, he knocked them down.

I got in a battle at Airfiled yesterday wher 3 T-50-2's were platooned together. Wow, what a ruckus they caused! I got one. I just stayed in one spot by the arty and ambushed. We lost. Funniest thing though? Last tank standing was an M7 Priest!

Sure was great fun when playing along side those who use TeamSpeak and know the game. Excellent teamwork.
