Huttball update for Dev's

Yesterday we were participating in various pvp ventures and during Huttball we found some very specific things that we wanted to bring up.

During the game a player gets a medal for completing xx thing. For example, doing 10k damage gets you a medal, 25k damage gets you a Soldier medal I think, Assassin is solo kill. Things like this. We were testing the actual mechanics using throw and seeing the various ways to move the ball down the field. I scored 3 times and passed the ball twice to someone who stepped across the score line within 3 seconds. None of those contributed anything to my score as far as I could tell. I had [3 kills and 2 deaths](intentionally), we wanted a very low score from killing to see what would happen.

Results: Our team won. I had 3 scores, 2 score line passes, 6,100ish exp, less com's and money too. My "guard" has 8kish exp more com's and so forth.


I just wanted to bring this up to see if this is by design or a switch not turned on. Thanks for your time.

Yeah, would be great if some Huttball scoring also awarded medals.

Totally agreed. I just assumed you got points back in beta. Never really checked it until now.

It's so that one person doesn't just try to "hog" the ball and score repeatedly by himself, I guess.

Xp and credit rewards are based off level. Wz comms are based off how many medals you earn. I believe its 5 wz comms per medal.

You can get medals by
Doing damage 3-4 medals for different ammounts of damage
Guarding allies 3-4 depending on ammount of protection
Healing allies 3-4 medals depending on ammount of heals
Death blow
solo kill
defender points 1k
There's more im sure

You probably never checked untill you scored. Did you score in beta?

Cause I noticed when I played hutball. But it wasn't until I actually scored with the huttball which contributed to a win was when I looked at the scoreboard and found no reward =(.

Afaik the only objective based medals in Huttball are for defending the carrier and killing the enemy carrier.

This is the most likely scenario. I never really looked in Beta. Well that is interesting.
