Looks like previous progress doesn't count yet? And what the heck is a polymorphic map?

These medals haven't yet been fully released, we're just testing a few things in the background before then. You'll find out all the information in the announcement on Thursday.

Was the thursday bug due to the implementation of the new stuff, therefore... No anouncement on thursday?

I asked about that, betiko, and they said that it wasn't due to implementing the update. I guess the data corruption killed whatever update was planned.

Not directly in the loop but yeah, i believe the data corruption just took up a ton of the time. Not sure if it'll still be released late or just wait until next thursday.

This shouldn't have taken time away from the implementation at all, because the big data loss happened early on Friday morning and implementations are typically done on Thursday morning.

It was taken out. The graphic for it was 3 Joined standard medal triangles.

I'm assuming this is a glimpse into some of the recent suggestions about neutral gameplay, with decaying, increasing, and all that?

Awarded to members that defeated X unique opponents by winning Polymorphic games

Polymorphic games will be where its 1v1, but its actually 2v2-4v4

In that I control red,green,blue and yellow and my opponent is pink,cyan,orange and silver.

Just a hunch....

That would make it a team game played without the individual bias each player independently has; to some degree.
