I see no problems with this except for the suggestion that we should be excluding certain maps from random.

Submitted.

Re: Medal Suggestion List [Submitted - Darwins_Bane]

i got one more which i didnt see mentioned:

* Medal Title: Random medal
* Medal Description: awarded after defeating 20/100/400 opponents on maps selected by the "random-map" function.
* Why this medal should be awarded:
while some say the cross-map medal covers this one already, i think there is a major difference between selecting a map and gametype you like, and that way managing to get the medal, instead of actually having to be prepared for any and all maps coming your way. i like playing random maps and i think its a shame we don't get a medal for it.

The problem with that suggestion, Catarah, is that there is no way at this point in time to track which games were created using the random map function and which were created on a particular map.

So, just because I'm ignorant on the process, what is the hope that this might actually be enacted anytime soon?

Is there any at all?

Submitted suggestions are effectively a shortlist for things that lack may want to look at. Whether and when they get implemented is completely up to lack. (At least, that's how I've understood the proces)

However, I have a question- for the crossmaps medal, would each unique defeat count both towards the random map and the map that came up from the random setting, or just the random setting? (Assuming the random medal would be based off of unique defeats, that is.)


It shouldn't count towards both 'random' and the map that came up for any medals, but it probably would unless lack made some serious changes.

I agree with you that it shouldn't, but I don't believe it would require serious changes. It should be as simple as having a "marker" denoting it as "random" which would make it NOT "Classic" or "Feudal" or whatever.

Oh, and thanks for the explanation, Michel.

Lack hasn't implemented this yet because he fears how dominant I would appear in comparison to those lowly Brigadiers and Conquerors. It would be so humiliating for them, and he has to look out for that. I'm sure that's it.

True, which is why THAT suggestion needs to be implemented ASAP, so that THIS medal can be awarded. <evil grin>
