But at the wrong time. We need people to look at the foundry a lot earlier than beta.



Getting players to actively participate in the foundry isn't going to happen. However, this at least has the potential to get players involved at the beta stage. I like the idea anyway (I'm usually in support of new medal ideas), but I like it even more that it could encourage some foundry participation even at the beta stage.

Love this idea. I've missed out on playing some games in beta simply because the games can take forever to fill. This would certainly spur extra players to dive in.

I am going to bump this great idea to the top of the list. I still feel it needs some tweaking but the idea of winning 400 games for a gold would be a great achievement and to have a medal for it would be really nice. As I said earlier (last year in fact) the games instead of players for the medal.
  • Win 20 bronze
  • win 100 silver
  • win 400 gold
Having it start fresh, so everyone starts at 0 will get players more interested in new games now and not have players getting a medal for being on the site for a long time. Also, with it starting fresh, this should make it easier to programme for the site as a whole.

I'm going to go ahead and Sticky this, because it is a wonderful idea.

You might want to consider different requirements for getting the medal, other than defeated opponents or wins. Because the maps may be unbalanced and because of possible XML changes as games happen, it might be unfair to demand that many victories on beta maps. It might be better to give the medal for absolute game play numbers, since the greater numbers of statistics are really what the mapmakers and community need to analyze how a map is faring.

Yea, I support.

@mets I don't think there needs to be any change in the calculations, maybe just a lower requirement.

What if you start a game in Beta, and it finishes in Quench? Need to work around that one.

Well when the map is created, it would have to have a (beta) tag, sort of like the (random) tag. So it shouldn't matter if it was quenched.
