SUBMITTED and Title of OP EDITED. This will not just be for clan medals if implemented.

Looks are important, but the other issue (and the bigger issue to my mind) is that we don't want to award 200 medals to someone for winning 200 tournaments. Right now the person with the most medals has 146. We put some restrictions on medals that makes them a little bit difficult to achieve. The escalating bronze, silver, gold is the way it's done for regular medals. The cap is the way it's been done for the achievement medals.

There has to be a balance between recognizing people for their achievements and limiting that recognition to true achievements.

Few question are arise
1.Are these usefull
2.Are these possible to implement?
3.What lvl of difficulty in implementation of these suggestion ?
4.How long these need to be implemented?

-------------------------------------------------------
Im here 6 years and i can not count how many times i heard from people who understand coding say " its easy to implement", and after that suggestion drop in oblivion, siting for infinitive time .
Now i hope that el jefe will not work like lackattack,and start avoiding suggestion forum.
Its important that we know--all these above, otherwise all these posting in suggestion forum, its pure waste of time.
When we come on these stage when these 4 question can answer El jefe, and start implement suggestion in appropriate time, then we can say that "Revolution Begun" have some practical meaning,and not to be some political phrase to sound great and nothing else.
And these its not only for these suggestion,these its for all sugestion who sit infinitive time here.

Ok, a couple of things...
• If it's been 6 years, then suggestions haven't been sitting here for infinite time.
• If there are only 50 topics in the submitted forum, you should be able to count.

In seriousness, I understand negativity surrounding this forum, but in this transition period, the new administration has had a lot of clerical work and has been taking time to understand the site before jumping into something that isn't fully understood. As you can see with the latest implemented suggestion, things are getting closer to being full force. Give it a little more time and see what happens. It's only been two months. If things aren't as promised in a few months, we can all grab a pitchfork and head to Indonesia together.

very few people would be affected if the cap was raised and i am one of them.

with 32 tournament wins and over 200 tournaments hosted it would be great to be recognised for that. the thing is, i already am. the hall of fame for hosting & winning in the tournament tab give people like myself recognition without devaluing the efforts of other's achievements in the Clan world, the Foundry or success in competitions run by the Entertainment team.

merch313 is already known as our most prolific host, HighlanderAttack for his incredible tally of tourney wins. increasing the cap won't change that.

give Clans a tab at the top of the site to list all clans and number of wins, all players and number of medals awarded. put a search page in there too to find war threads. mimic the Tounament tab. do it for the Foundry as well showing mapmakers and their maps.

allow us to recognise our contributions and achievements within our sub communities and there'll be no need to raise the cap on medals.

cam on greenoaks,, now you suggest 3-4 different implementation instead these one , and these mean more work.

I understand, but for start will be good that someone come to suggestions,and start reply "these will be implemented" " these not be implemented" .
How much time will El jefe, spend to answer, for start, then we can know what to expect.
And what period need for transition, so that new administration start work? 6 month-1 year-5 year?

but it doesn't unbalance the medal tally list because tournaments (won & hosted) has a lot of players maxed out

I don't think it's balanced the way it is now. If it were, a map contribution medal would be worth at least ten times a tournament medal!
No one looks at a rating medal and consider it as valuable as an assassin medal. I'm all for a fairer medals awarding system, but that doesn't need to clash with this suggestion. Give 1 medal per 10 hosted tournaments, 1 medal per 15 won tournaments etc

We need clan tab for this not expanding number of medals that can be seen.

I couldn't disagree more with that proposal. Maps take longer to make, but that doesn't mean winning a tournament is easier than making a map. Anyone can make a map eventually. It would take me forever and be painful, but I could make a map. Anyone can, because it's not a competition to see who's map is better. Not anyone can win a tournament.

There have been 2074 tournament winners for 9761 medals total. That's an average of about 4.7 tournaments per winner. There have been 315 (I think) map medals given and 102 winners. That's an average of about 3.1 maps per winner. By those numbers, map medals are less prevalent, but also less specialized. Less than 20% of people who have played in a tournament have won a tournament.

you think creating a map that will be playable on this site (not landgrab) is something anyone could do? You think just anyone could do it if they sit long enough? Your naivety is amusing.
Unlike winning a small tournament which anyone with some dice luck can win, creating a map will test your dedication and skill in ways playing a luck based board game will never do. ANYONE can win a tournament, because ANYONE can win a couple of games in a row, and that is often all it takes to win a tournament. Anyone can try to make a map, but very few can become good enough to prompt the site to use it as a playable map. You mentioned time, you don't think with time ANYONE can learn how to play RISK good enough to win a tournament? All you need is some advice from a veteran or a bunch of games on said map, I know that from experience.
Learning how to make a map is like painting, ANYONE can doodle down some ugly crap, but few can paint well enough to get their paintings into an art gallery.

Yes, I think that anyone can make a map here. It can take quite a while for some, but I'm been in the foundry and been a part of the process over there with a couple of maps. The foundry community is very helpful and patient. On this site, I believe that anyone can make a quality map.

you matematic are totaly wrong. Creating maps are not competition. Its much easier to join a tornament,then to start a map. And real recipient of map medal are much less, then what statistic tell you. Im alone get 7 medals for entire work on 7 map, only in WWII Europe i get medal for graphic,idea,gameplay,and gilligan get medal for XML. More medal are awarded for contribution in map foundry then for real development of maps, Cairnswk alone create over 20-30 maps.
Cairnswk-30 medals
Dim-10 medals
Qwert-8 medals
-------------------- For these 3 map maker i can be sure that they create everything(i dont count XML, because these its easier part of creating maps,and these can do everything ,and its most easy way to get map medal), so 48 maps are created 3 person.
From these day you have 225 maps, but real map makers are around 50,and all other are co-developers.
In some cases people get medal only for IDEA(ridiculous), and they dont work anything on map.

I've worked on three maps, I know how much works lies ahead of you if you try to make a map, and let me tell you, it's a shitload of work! The mapmakers should be knighted for the time they put down on this site, not be compared with tournament organizers or even worse, tournament winners, who have done nothing special at all.

I don't have anything nice to say to you about tournament organizing, since you have abandoned 8 tournaments and finished only 1. With a record like that, how easy can tournaments be to run?

@qwert: You can say the same thing about tournaments. It's really top-heavy for the winners. As I said, 9761 winners and 2470 of those wins are from the top 2.5% (50 people). So, I don't think that your argument holds water.

you are here 4 years,and im here 6 years.
Lets see- for these period you create 170 tournament-and i create 8 maps(42 tournament per year,and 1 map per year). these mean that create map are very hard and not easy job.

From other side i create 22 tournaments(creating 7110 games) and you create zero maps( 3,6 tournament per year-zero map per year) these mean that for me create tournament are much easy then for you to create map.

Now you say that hard to win a tournament? And you have 45 medals?
I win in 5 tournament, and its not difficulty,only what i need to do its TO PLAY,, no hours of work in Photoshop.

Do you know how much i spend in creating of some maps? 16 month for WWII Europe-6 month for WWII Eastern Front. And for these time you manage to win in 45 tournaments, how can these be difficulty????
One day when you create map,then you can talk about development of maps.

It's one of the easiest things in the world to do. I'm about to finish one right now, and it was no effort at all to do so. Yet that tournament contains three times as many games as the lowest standard tournament. If you seriously think typing a few words in a forum thread and sending out invites to players is harder than spending at least 100 hours in photoshop working on a map (that's about the least you can get away with), then you've gone mad! Hosting tournaments is super easy! As long as you're on the site, I tend to come and go as I please and so that's why I have so many abandoned tournaments. Nonetheless, it's easy pickings to do and should not be compared to map making.

Let's move the discussion on to something else, please. We don't actually gain anything by debating about which activity is harder to do.

tournaments vs Map making.

Tournaments are easier to farm medals than map medals.

HOWEVER, BOTH are equally important to the site. Without maps this site would die, but without tournaments this site would also die. That is why both deserve recognition on the site.

The tournament communities and Map communities are very different though. It's like comparing different cliques in a school, do you REALLY want medal hunters to be all over the foundry just doing the bear minimum to get a medal? I don't think so. Map makers will never, ever be rightfully recognized unless they change recognition altogether. But I believe the truly dedicated members know and understand how much effort map makers put into their maps.

sorry mets, could not resist to post.

Tournaments are easier to farm medals than map medals.

that is why i like the cap, combined with the Hall Of Fame.

Hey there everyone! It looks like a scale (such as agentcoms) will be used for the update. Please stay tuned for this (hopefully soon) implementation.

rdsrds2120...have you solved the mapmaker's medal problem (that i have) above 30 with the same solution?

PS. I've read through the discussion previous, and i have to agree with Qwert....change over to Arabic numerals, the functionality is far better.
And if there is ever a need for functionality, this is it!

In all the discussion, there is not one example considered of what this change might look like...it actually looks very similar to the army numbers that are generated on all the maps.
I don't think they look too bad.

Cairns Coral Coast, agentcom? could be mis-interpretation there if awarded for tourney medal.

ok a few things, I kind of agree with a few opinions here:

-there should be a clan tab with the wins per clan and per player, a tab for maps created, and a tab for map contribution, the same way as for tournaments and I think it should be on the scoreboard tab, not in the tourneys tab

-arabic numerical system is a good Idea.

-we should create a new total medal count system that would be based on points, not number of medals! Saying that a map medal has the same value of a tournament organization is ridiculous. Creating a map is the most complicated thing on the site, some people have been working hard on maps trying to make everyne happy for monthes, and also creating a map is the best thing you can do for the community, much more than winning an individual medal.
Winning a tournament is much more difficult that hosting one!!! We should come up with a point system for medals. You can't value the same way 3 bronze medals (60 unique kills total) and 1 gold (400 unique kills total). We should have a game score on one side (the one currently in place) and a medal score on the other, where each medal type is valued accordingly to its difficulty. That way I would see no problem to pass the system to arabic figures bellow the given medals.
