Well 2 down to 1.7 Million in the first month, you do the math.

And to those that say that the medals systems works fine, they are just numbless brain dead people who like gear grinding by farming medals but do not care to partake in any real engaging PvP.

They lost 15% subscribers in the first month. Will see what happens in the next few months.
Because no MMO has ever lost subs after the free month.

Medal system is ok in theory, they just need to tweak some medals so that each archtype(dps/heals/tank) have access to the same number of medals.

I was playing a Hutball the other day and my team was playing pro hutball. Grabbing, passing and getting in good spots to receive passes. Score became 5-0 really fast and I look down and noticed I had ZERO medals because I was just trying to help win the game. At this point our team was forced to stop grabbing the ball and start farming the opposing team. This is neither fair to EITHER team.

Secondly this system seems to favor people who do not care for objectives and hurt the rest of your team. A lot of people just run around trying to kill people and they ignore everything else. Those people usually end up with the most Valor/commendations at the end of the match which is wrong.

Third and I will add I am not a healer but healers really get screwed here. Healers are arguably the most important members of your team and they are always getting the least medals on the team and a lot of the time they are the whole reason you win said match.

There are probably more issues with this system but you get the point. I know you guys have a lot on your plate with other issues but Id like to see some sort of change in the future on how rewards are handed out.

Anyone elses thoughts?
So what?

You get commendations for winning, and winning quickly is better than qinning slowly.

The guys not paying attn to objectives probably lose more games than win and the 'medals vs commendations' thing ends up a wash.

Not really caring about this.

Nothing wrong with healers... I play a Sorc healer and I average 8-11 medals a game. People just need to learn to deal damage when everyone is above 80% hp.
2.5k heal, 5k heal, 2.5k damage, killing blow, 75k healing and 75k damage is obtainable during every game if you spec and play right.
