i agree with his point :3 , could we have more medals?, i think we should so that other people can see what we have acoponlished, beacuse i dont see the current ranking system or medals as it were to be proud about, so mabye a diffent ranking system could be produced with leaderbords, and scores.
youknow, just to make warzone i bit competertive and more fun.

also the current ranking system seems to me like is boring.(e.g- yay a gold medal :stare: :zZz: ) compared with (yay im now level 27 commander :D :!!!: ).

i think the ranking system at the moment could do with some major improvements :!!!: .

Erm...

Write up a proposal about a new ranking system? I don't really care about them all that much myself, so that's not something I can really do. But if you write a clear proposal for a new and detailed ranking system, I'll try to add it into the game.

i no you just said you don't care about medals zarel, but what about adding a win streak (online mulitplayer only), surely you will be interested in that.

but the only problem i can think of having that is, you will have Finnish the game (beating any remaining AI :(), normally you could quit when other players have been beaten.

PS, if i could make a mod about this then i would, but unfortunately i don't no how to.

A win streak is a particularly useless method of gauging the skill of a player. It's better left out entirely.

Before we can suggest medals, what stats can the game collect to create medals for (apart from those that already have medals)?
Full of ideas - Most are probably useless. Feel free to ignore them :)

Number of units you've killed.
Number of units that've died.
Number of times you've started a game.
Number of times you've finished a game and won.
Number of times you've finished a game and lost.

I think "amount of time playing" is also on the list. We might be able to record other information, too.

Perhaps some more win ratio medals are needed, I and 3 other guys I know have already maxed one name and are working on a second/third....
