great idea =D>

I was originally thinking it should be 3 separate medals, but after reading the thread I agree 1 is probably better (400 dubs partners is a lot)

but once people have the gold for that they will start requesting more medals and splitting it in 3 will be an obvious demand

so why not just implement the 3 upfront + having 3 will encourage more diversity of teams than what only 1 will


even though i am saying it should be 3, not 1 i am not the 'no' vote. having this for all teams is better than not at all

The only reason I think it should be for all the team games combined instead of 3 medals, is because it is almost impossible to play with and win with 400 dubs partners, THEN 400 trips partners, THEN 400 quads partners.. Most of us will have trouble playing with 400 partners to begin with!

it is no more difficult than trying to get your speed if you don't play speed

or your freestyle if you don't play freestyle

too many people set up 50 games on obscure maps with the same partners farming the clueless (or the friendless)

if they want to get it in Dubs, Trips & Quads they are going to have to step outside of their little clique

They will have to step out of their clique even if they had to get 400 overall partners.. their clique is at most composed of 20-30 members.. 400 is a lot!

Not so. Once upon a time, there was not a "nuclear" medal, nor was there a "manual" medal. I remember the threads that requested them. Initially, the idea was downed, but eventually CC admin saw the wisdom voila` - now there are medals for these gamestyles.

CC does have some faults. Just please, aog, be honest about them.

Meanwhile, the idea of a medal for winning teams based on unique players on the team would encourage mix-n-match. Problem is, how to do it?

A separate dubs/trips/quads or one medal that requires a certain number of EACH of the unique-team styles? What would that be? 30 dubs, 30 trips, 30 quads, each with totally different partners? Or could you use each of your dubs mates with an "unique" third for trips? Could the "unique third" for trips also be one of your dubs mates?
Or, in this scenario, would you have to play all 90 games never repeating any partner?

Work out the logistics of the suggestion and you just might see them agree to it.

I am not entirely sure what your asking.. But here is my idea

The medal would require 400 uniques for a gold. That means if you played on my team as a doubles partner, and won, and then you also played on my team as a trips and quads partner, and won, I would still only have you counted as one unique. Does that answer?

I think this is a great suggestion. It'll have the exact opposite effect of the public invite system, which I thought and still think sucks for this very reason.

no, it will be no harder than coding for 3 new medals normally is. Just get rid of any and all coding relating to the 1 medal, and replace it with everything you need for the 3 new medals, pretty simple actually.

I didn't and don't like the public invite system because it limits the general desire to play with new people. Most people will stick with inviting the same 10 teammates to every one of their games. Also, I personally get annoyed when the same trips or quads team Team 2s me over and over. After a while, you know exactly how a team will play, so the strategy aspect becomes dull, and the game is really just a dice war while you try to pre-emptively strike them or counter their predictable moves.

Three of my favorite teammates were found when I first started, just joining random team games. I think the institution of this suggestion would encourage more diverse teams, and would fix all the problems I have with the public invites. I don't want to derail this thread into a discussion on the invite system, just saying that it's the reason why I really like the idea of this medal. It'll probably only be a temporary solution until the usual suspects would get this gold medal, but I'll take it.
