In most of the matches I am in I am the only healer now as most of them went dps to get more medals. I can regularly get 500k healing in a voidstar or Alderaan. What sux is I usually dont have time to do anything but heal if I want our team to win, which means I usually get 3 or 4 medals. There should be a way for a single healer to get a couple more medals without having to dps, not asking to be able to get 10/11 medals per match for just healing but 2 or 3 more for doing what I should be doing to help my team win would be nice.

I usually get the most medals in Huttball depending on the match but I spend a lot more time dpsing in HB as I am healing and dpsing about half and half.

Not complaining, I would rather win than get medals, but I think more healing medals would bring back more healers to the WZ's.

When Water/Medpacs gave credit for healing medals, I was able to get 16 out of the total 18 Medals on my DPS Juggernaut. Technically, I could still get the 2.5k and 5k heal medals if I specced and geared correctly. You jelly?

almost every wz ppl vote on healer they get 10-11 medals while some ppl like pure dps will never get more than 8 medals and never get vote so they will take much more time than any healer to get rank 60

It's true. Tying tangible benefits to medals was a terrible design decision.

Immortal Juggernaut:

Almost every fight easy:

2.5K protection single life
5K protection
Killing blow

Not hard, but take some effort or luck (I normally get about 3 of these per game) :

10K protection single life
50K protection
75K damage
1 v 1 kill
10 kills
75K damage

Not impossible, but hard (long hutt-ball games):

75K heals
25 kills
300K damage

To get the 75K heals you need to use your out of combat heal, it takes about 7-9 health bars worth of healing (never got quite there myself the closest i got was 56k).

IMO the WZ medals should be awarded for WZ goals. Scoring and passes in huttball, planting a bomb on a door in voidstar, capping a turret in Alderaan and things like that. The medal format is currently very individualistic and motivates certain people to treat WZs like death matches. How about some team medals for finishing huttball in under 7 1/2 minutes or winning by over 100 in Alderaan. I would just like to see the medal awards geared to team play and achieving goals.

I am only level 36 and I get a minimum of 10 medals in every WZ.
I hit the 50k defense in many matches as balanced jc. Just started hitting 300k dmg with full champion gear... have only hit both once so far though (in the same match). That'll probably change with bm gear

kinetic shadows can get the 75k healing medal, plus every other medal except the 5k hit, the 300k dmg and the 300k healing. Battle Readiness gives the two big heal medals as well.
