Medal System Overhaul/Suggestions

Overview Points
-Kills should give credit to the killer, assisters, and any healers that healed the killer
-Medals should be more common but reward less, allowing players to be rewarded on the fly for various activities
-Each MVP vote should count as an extra medal, and it should be required to vote your MVP before leaving. Loss or not, some player did well and deserves recognition.
-Removal of Absorb Medals, only one healer subclass gets absorb abilities and the other is basically screwed when it comes to these, resulting in Sages/Sorcerers getting extra medals over Commandos/Scoundrels (and their Empire Equivalents)
-Removal of Heavy Hit Medals, these one shot of "hit for 2500, 5000, etc." are kinda worthless and guaranteed every round to those with good gear, creating a snowball effect, as cool as they are they lack a real purpose

Except that medals like "Plant the bomb" should be given to every player in 30y range to the planting one ect.

I've lost count to the number of times I've lost out on commendations and MVP points purely because I'm a healer. The reason why I can't take objectives is because I'm usually healing the guy TAKING them.

Same with with damage and KBs. I only really have the chance to ninja KBs and DoT up people trying to take objectives while the suicidal randoms outside my premade get a ton of medals for bashing on that pocket healed tank for the entire Warfront...

I would fully support healers being given full or partial credit for kills and objective takes that they are involved in.

I would be fine with this as well. I'll addendum objectives to also give medals to nearby allies as well.

My issue is that as a Tank I'm raking in 9 medals a match, whereas my dedicated healbot (my fiance') is behind me healing me nonstop and only getting 2-3, due to the absorb shield ones only working for Sages/Sorcerers. Kinda a bum thing.

I'm grateful to get 5 medals in a game while healing really. It's just disappointing to see that the medals aren't really based on performance. It's just based on how many people you can tag for kill participation.

That's true, maybe they should just gauge that you gain so much valor/commendations per x healing in incremental steps? Then instead of medals you're just constantly gaining as you play.

I like the basic idea of what you're saying. One nitpick though to me (as a medic) is the savior medals. If you're healing a batch of people below 5% then you're not doing your job as a healer IMO. Maybe instead only have 1 medal instance since it is a life saver when they do it?

Just thinkin' about it.

Yea those I was afraid of for that reason, instead it should probably be the alternative to the guarding one, you get it for healing someone's full health value total on them.
