[Site] Raise Achievement Medal Cap from 30 to Whatever

Postby BGtheBrain on Tue Oct 23, 2012 12:40 pm

[MOD Edit: Changed title since we will do this for all achievement medals or none of them. This won't be something specific to clans.]

Concise description:
  • Raise the current cap from 30 to whatever

Specifics/Details:
  • See above

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • will encourage clans to have more wars

Well, that cap is on all medals, so I think it would need to be changed on all to be consistent.

As far as encouraging more wars, I doubt it. There are only 8 people with 30 medals. I think you knew that though.

I think it has something to do with the fact that he's almost at 30. But I agree they need to increase it for all medals with that 30 cap limit.

I never knew there was such a limit. 30 seems rather arbitrary.

I think part of it is so that people can't do something very easy to get a lot of extra medals as well. Having a cap is a good idea, IMO, because it forces you to explore other areas to hunt medals in. Of course, the cap could be higher. And yes, his clan has the most medals because they play the most wars. I would be in favor of upping the limit to about 50, but much higher than that, I think is too much.

yeah i think it's not normal that HA isn't the guy with the most medals on the site.
On the other hand, i think it's a pitty to play clan wars mostly vs the worse clans over and over on the site just to get 50 medals. TNC has talented players and should play less and better opponents, they would be a much higher ranked clan.

I don't think you can knock TNC for their methods. They aren't doing it for medals. They just like a lot of wars. If the higher clans would play with them more often, I'm sure they would accept the challenge.

Can I count this as a challenge from Pack?
If so we accept. Terms to be decided at a later date.

i'm not the one to decide and to tell the truth the plan right now is a break untill january february, most of our members are a bit burned out or on a cc break. But no opponent is really decided for our 2013 comeback. ask crown to pm great-ollie, john deere, lynch and jghost our leaders (the 3 first ones are on a semi cc break and might take a while for them to respond).
I'd be happy to do so cause i know loads of you guys.

I'm not sure about giving a new medal for each thing above 30 for any of the achievement medals. Like chap said, handing 290 tournament medals to HA seems a bit excessive. What about a system like with regular medals, where you get a new medal eventually, but the award rate decreases.

Maybe for tourneys and clan wars something like 50, 100, 200. For things like tourney wins you could space them out a little more even.

There was a mention of this in the Newsletter the other day pertaining to the Foundry. It seems like you should continue gaining recognition beyond 30 for something like designing a map.

Also, the space limitations wouldn't be a problem if you awarded medals like this because Roman numerals for these "round" numbers don't take up too much space.
