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>
