20, 100, 400, 1200, 2400 makes more sense

The ads are fine. I'm actually surprised that you didn't add them a couple years ago. I'm looking forward to playing some speed games. Thank you.

you can't do multiples forever. at the end of the day we're talking about unique opponents, and getting new unique opponents gets harder and harder.
1500 I'm not even gonna bother trying when I see the hard work it is for gold and it's not even a third of the new requirement. only the crossmap at 200 would be an interesting challenge.

The medals are super high for a reason -- to truly reward the longevity players. They're not supposed to be easily farmed, and filling out your profile with those medals would be truly, truly fantastic! Players with those medals would be known as the cream of the crop for the respective setting. :)

no one will ever get the teammate medal for example, or maybe in 10 years time and I doubt anyone will be consistent on the site for another 10 years.
Also you haven't revealed the info for the crossmap, is it 200 indeed?

Yes, crossmap next level is 200. We can look into changing the scales for the teammate medal overall, since it is ostensibly harder to get that medal than the others.

I agree with this view. Set the bar high - it may take some time but for people that were out of medals to obtain - at least now they have something to keep them busy for a (long) while!

Damn, I was sort of hoping for 100 or 150.

I'm gonna have to foe anyone I win over to even get Platinum in standard. Trying to get it in any other medal is just mission impossible. except the rating medal, that should be possible. Just wish I had rated the players in those 19 speed BR's I played.

don't you think that 1000 or 1200 was already setting the bar really high? I think you can count on the fingers of your hand the players that have all in gold out of 650 000+ accounts. Multiply it by 3 already guarantees any player on the site to be buisy for a few years. It's almost multiplied by 4 here, no one will ever reach full diamond!

gillipig: for the crossmap I think 200 is fully logic and reasonable.

Not all the settings are 1500. Ratings medal is higher, as is always. If you want to do some guesswork, I'll be getting 5 medals when they go live! :D
