I would love to see more medal like patrol duty and confederate in the game. These medal promote helping the team rather then nabbing all the glory for your self. Perhaps a medal for damaging X number of tank to 50% health or lower would be a good one. A saving shot medal/ribbon would be great and promote your teammates helping each other. If you got a ribbon for killing the tank that is actively engaging a friendly maybe people would pay more attention.....instead of just hiding in their bush.

Too complex.

Sure you don't work for WG? Anything hard or complex not worth doing. The game is working as intended after all.

I wish they do what War Thunder is doing. You get xp for medals like top gun etc. It makes you want to play better.

Exactly. The game would require some extra AI to evaluate such cases.

I mean picking saving shots for example.

I dunno, isn't the "lucky" medal kind of similar? perhaps that code could be adapted.

How is game supposed to differentiate between a truly saving shot (with an intention to save your team mate) and a selfish attempt to get another kill? I think that was the OP's idea - to encourage team work.

The problem here is not lack of medals or other achievements but mostly our human nature - you will not enforce team work if so many people simply prefer playing on their own while thinking that they're "masterz ov da universe" :P

You mean like a "savior" ribbon like in BF3? That one is for killing any enemy which currently is "suppressing" (firing at) a teammate. I want to see top gun in the game now changed to not count kills, but count total damage. I would also like to see one for when you do more damage than the other 14 players on your team combined.

I play the game as a team player.  I not the guy you got yelling that you just kill stealed him. I would be the guy keeping the enemy lite up.  As long as the game is won, I am happy.  I hate losing.  Although my usual teammates love to lose.  My percentage is below 50% for wins.  But hey those losers are leaving the game with some kills.  :Smile_great:
