PVP ZONE: THE VOIDSTAR (both times)

I just had two PVP matches queued. The first time there were only TWO republic players and the imperial side had a full team. The match started even though the system message said that if more players did not join that it would end.

The match ended and each imperial had FIVE TO SIX MEDALS each. How did they accomplish this if the match lasted less than 30 seconds?

The second had five players with the same scenario. The imperials had a FULL TEAM EACH WITH FIVE TO SEVEN MEDALS AT THE END OF THIRTY SECONDS.

Not really an exploit, but if it the opposing team wins in the situation you described they will get the dauntless victory medals I.e the timed medals, and since they technically won in under minute they get quite a few medals because of that. Some other medals might have been from planting the bomb and gotten 2k obj points or whatever amount it is.

Not really that difficult to obtain that many medals in 30 seconds. Pretty sure there are at least 4 Dauntless medals just for completing under time.

If you hover your cursor over the icon for the players medals it will tell you what they were for. As previously stated, these were most likely Dauntless medals.

It's ok. You're not the first, nor the last, person to cry "exploits!" or "hacks!" when it's just something you don't understand.
