20, 100, 400, 1200, 2400 makes more sense

The ads are fine. I'm actually surprised that you didn't add them a couple years ago. I'm looking forward to playing some speed games. Thank you.

you can't do multiples forever. at the end of the day we're talking about unique opponents, and getting new unique opponents gets harder and harder.
1500 I'm not even gonna bother trying when I see the hard work it is for gold and it's not even a third of the new requirement. only the crossmap at 200 would be an interesting challenge.

The medals are super high for a reason -- to truly reward the longevity players. They're not supposed to be easily farmed, and filling out your profile with those medals would be truly, truly fantastic! Players with those medals would be known as the cream of the crop for the respective setting. :)

no one will ever get the teammate medal for example, or maybe in 10 years time and I doubt anyone will be consistent on the site for another 10 years.
Also you haven't revealed the info for the crossmap, is it 200 indeed?

Yes, crossmap next level is 200. We can look into changing the scales for the teammate medal overall, since it is ostensibly harder to get that medal than the others.

I agree with this view. Set the bar high - it may take some time but for people that were out of medals to obtain - at least now they have something to keep them busy for a (long) while!

Damn, I was sort of hoping for 100 or 150.

I'm gonna have to foe anyone I win over to even get Platinum in standard. Trying to get it in any other medal is just mission impossible. except the rating medal, that should be possible. Just wish I had rated the players in those 19 speed BR's I played.

don't you think that 1000 or 1200 was already setting the bar really high? I think you can count on the fingers of your hand the players that have all in gold out of 650 000+ accounts. Multiply it by 3 already guarantees any player on the site to be buisy for a few years. It's almost multiplied by 4 here, no one will ever reach full diamond!

gillipig: for the crossmap I think 200 is fully logic and reasonable.

Not all the settings are 1500. Ratings medal is higher, as is always. If you want to do some guesswork, I'll be getting 5 medals when they go live! :D

i know very strange point,
but i am not very satisfied from means of visiuality...
many will have a few of diamond medals once it gets released but then from visiuality measures, if this diamond medal, any chance going to look better than we have it gold right now ?

i just dont want diamond medals to look like a black spider on the white carpet... color combinations is a fail IMO.
i dont really care if it looks like to diamond piece, in jewelery offices, diamond pieces are made combo with ruby/sapphire/etc stones so medal should not be all dark because we call it to be diamond...loook at standard gold medal icon, and if red color has got anything to do with gold ? But it is well red dominating more than gold yellow.

Well, idea is superb !!!
On the other hand, maybe we reconsider the diamond colors, i am all good with very shiney white dominating medal icons, or if you are making it dark background, then add some powerfull colors in it, such as ruby color instead turquaz, or add gold yellow in it instead turquaz, just try it out then you will see it better company with existing gold medals...If you keep this look, then really between gold medals, this new medal is not going to fit well.

Ads, are you serious, ok, they are not that bad, but really? I don't have money to spend on an online game to get premium, also, I want a game limit so I don't overfill my day with games. Could you put the ads at the bottom of the page? How do they benefit the site? How many people would it take to overturn this new announcement?


I like more medals, but, hey, I don't even have any gold yet...

well you could ask yourself the question the other way around. how do you benefit the site? As anything free on internet, you got to see ads in return. Just give me a non merchant site free of use without ads, it's just stupid not to monetize these pages (even if adsense isn't gonna bring a very effective CPM..). If you are not willing to pay to play, advertising exposure seems more than reasonable.


oh and just realized 1500 was just for ratings (reasonable for that one). I overlooked the wording! ;)
So looks like other medals will most likely be at 1000-1200 as I initially understood from the medal suggestions! :)

Ummm... by bringing in revenue? Of course no one likes ads, but this site has made nothing off of free players until now. This is a business. Premium players bring in revenue and, now, so do we. As a free player, at the moment, I support this move. Makes complete sense to me. If it bothers people, maybe they'll pony up for premium.

Actually, for some reason they've decided to call it "Diamond". It sure looks more like a medal for platinum.

MegaProphet, thanks for that. Does not look that bad. I know it could get annoying but as long as it stays on the freeium side of things, I am happy. So this is really only on game pages. Again, not so intrusive. It makes sense to have them to pay for programmers/updates.
