That's exactly the problem. If you can continue getting more medals just for doing more of the same, it basically becomes a type of farming. A medal system is supposed to reward you for stretching yourself in new directions and looking for new challenges. Running your first tournament is a big milestone, running your 291st is not.

Ideally a medal system should be logarithmic. If you get a medal for running your first tournament, it should take ten tournaments to get your second, and a hundred to get your third. and a thousand to get your fourth. (The multiplier doesn't have to be 10; if an activity is inherently more difficult it can have a smaller multiplier.) That's approximately the way the gameplay medals go: it's easy to get bronze, a little harder to get silver, and much harder to get gold.

Just so we're clear, he's won 291. He hasn't quite ran 291 yet.

I do agree with Duka. I love medals a lot, but a cap is good because it makes more types of medals mean more, IMO.

Bronze, silver, gold, platinum for all types of medals is probably the best solution. As it deals with the inevitable inflation of some types of medals. Different standards could be set for different types of medals.

I'd be quite happy to have this, as long as it provides functionality, but it still doesn't solve the numeric issue on the medals.

It would actually. Just like there's no numerals on the terminator medal or the fog of war medal, there would be no numerals on the special achievement/contribution medals. After having won a certain number of tournaments, you would be awarded with bronze, silver, gold and platinum, same for clans and every other medal currently displayed with roman numerals. That's the suggestion I was thinking of.

so these its new system of solve problems? with less effort to create something? Anyone who ahve over 30 medals will need to create hes own medals in signature(like cairnswk and highlanderattack).

like i say in page 4

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.


its will be great if you put a vote poll, so that community give hes vote ,between Arabic and Romans numbers, now its look that our opinion and suggestions are not valid, and that again mods suggestion will be implemented, even when Arabic also possible to be implemented.
Why you even bother to ask for community opinion,when you work on your way? These its what i don't understand.
Also will be pointless to open new topic and suggest change Romans with Arabic numbers, because like its look these will be very fast rejected, even if these possible.

There isn't a need for Arabic numbers with this update. So, why change the current system?

As far as I know the suggestion that has been approved, is the one where roman numerals will end at "L" or "50", so roman numerals are staying, unfortunately.

That is all fine and dandy, then why a CAP--it should just be bronze, silver, gold, and maybe further it out. It makes no sense you can win 30 medals and then you can't win any more when the majority of the medals are bronze, silver, gold. Add Platinum and Diamond and make them all the same. We already know that it is much harder to get a medal for some things than other things. Someone can spend 30 minutes of their time running a tourney while someone can spend 100 hours running another tourney an it gets the same medal or in the case of the CAP neither get anything. Their is no easy way to measure the importance of each medal as everyone thinks different anyway, I would be glad to lose my 30 count caps for a more uniform system of bronze, silver, gold, Platinum and Diamond. At least to me it makes more sense than a CAP.

unfortunately,when mods suggest something ,then these its sealed for any other change. These its not any improvement at all.
Now you need to wait another 3-4 years, so that some new mods finally accept logical solution, who will fix these for very long time.
I dont know why i even waste time in these topic?

I think they should come up with three ideas and have the community vote on it--that makes the most sense to me

qwert, try not to be so negative.

Why is there a need for Arabic numbers if the only medals will be given out at certain leveled intervals? Roman numerals work fine for this. It's not logical to change something that is already working. So, instead of changing a lot of images already in place and adding a LOT of images and dealing with medal inflation, a few images will just be added.

This suggestion is only getting pushed through because of community support -- we probably wouldn't have looked at it if not for this thread. However, sometimes we have to go a slightly different route from the specific alternative the community requests, but that's usually for technical reasons. It's not that we don't value your input!

I have to agree with qwert on this. Its so disappointing at this point that no solution has been implemented and the mods/admins are walking around the problem. Be honest and tell us if you guys are not able to make a change on this, or if there is a programming limitation for a solution to be implemented.

I think is Conquer Club obligation to hand out as many medals as a player deserve. If HA wants to keep running tournaments, and winning more as well, he deserve every single medal he earned.

Do you think the banks are going to send a letter to Mr. Slim, Mr. Gates or Mr. Buffett saying that: "Sorry Mr. but our bank system can handle more digits on your account. Please stop making more money!" Thats bullshit guys!

I know that there are going to be more replies and pages added to this thread before this site commit and implement a solution for this problem.

My two cents, sorry.

All the medals have some sort of "cap." With the standard medals, they are capped at 3: Bronze, silver, gold. After that you just have to play standard games (or whatever) for fun, points, prestige, clan wins, etc. That is, something other than medals. The same goes for tournaments: after you've won 30 you can still enter more tournaments, but you don't also get the medal out of it. You can continue to do it to move up the Hall of Fame or for fun or whatever reason, but medals won't really be your goal.

Perhaps if we could start the whole thing from scratch, we would come up with different limits, but the system isn't that broken right now. To me this is a minor change that will award a few more medals to those that have gone so far above and beyond the current cap of 30 that they almost demand recognition. I don't think that 31 achievements demands recognition in this same way.

So, keeping caps/limits on the medals is in keeping with how CC issues medals generally.
