Existing interpretations are full of reverse-Rank bias. Newcomers can earn clan war medals for clan tournaments, ALL rounds (they have, go look!), but participants in a series that's less discriminatory (but still requires EXPERIENCED clans) cannot.
Totally different scenario. The Newcomers tournament is designed for new clans to flex their muscles a bit. Giving them medals for victories there makes sense, not least of which because since they are all new clans, rank should most likely be pretty close to even, while the same is not true at all in this tournament.
No slight intended towards Newcomers, but that is kinda like comparing trophy systems between Little League and the Majors. Different setup, different scenario, plausible different rule set.
Not necessarily siding with either group here, I personally am still neutral on this topic, but just wanted to throw that thought out there for your consideration stahrgazer.
And the Conqueror's Cup is intended for experienced clans to flex their muscles a bit. NOT a totally different scenario.
So again.. you're saying that because Ccup chose to not be quite as discriminatory as the other cup series, it should be treated as worse.
"MInor leagues" deserve a medal for wins, but "Major leagues" don't.
But last I knew, anyone "good enough" to play in a Major League ball game got the same rewards for wins no matter how far down on the scale some of their opponents were.
LoW didn't beg to have to play in play-in rounds, you know. We weren't chomping at the bit to wipe some lesser-ranked-but-experienced-enough-for-Major-leagues clans out of the competition. We grudgingly agreed to do so when it worked out as it did (when a few extra clans were deemed experienced enough, "Major League" enough to enter) which meant we were required to do play-ins as well as rounds of 16.
So on CC, clans who agree to participate in the (first 2, anyway) rounds of "Major Leagues" are farmers if we win.
yup, the fertilizer is getting real deep, no wonder they want to label so many farmers to spread it
Edit: and, nippersean? and Leehar? No. Unless the rules change, you'll be FARMERS to beat us in the quarter-finals, and as FARMERS you won't deserve a medal for beating clan 4 when you're clan 3... only the semi and finals are currently targeted for medals in the CCup (despite ALL rounds being given medals in Newcomer cup).. likewise, if we beat you, we'll be FARMERS to have beaten the clan ranked over us. (Because it's the "anti farming" rule that got applied behind sealed doors to prevent awarding all rounds of the CCup skirmishes any clan war medals.)
