New WZ medal ideas

I'm thinking we need some War Zone specific medals, and more medals in general.
Medals are like mini-achievements for WZs so there should be more medals all with witty names!

I'll constantly update this list as more ideas are suggested.
Remember: All values are subject to tweaking, clearly these wouldn't all be "balanced" and having all these medals implemented at once would be overkill.


Huttball:
*Carrier Killer (Kill the ball carrier)
*Touchdown (Score a point in Huttball)
*Unstoppable (Score 3 points in Huttball)
*Wingman (Heal the carrier for over 25k)
'-- Not in a single life, or on a single carrier, but throughout the game.
*Denied! (Kill the ball carrier within 5m of the goal) [credit: Deacon-frost]
*Team Player (Pass the ball to someone who then scores with it)
*Connection (Successfully pass the ball!) [credit: Elboc]
*Cleanser (Remove N negative status effects from the ball carrier) [credit: Blazehound]


Alderaan:
*Control Freak (Take a turret, and kill a player who was attempting to take the turret within "n" seconds?)
*Turret Defense (Kill "n" players near a turret control)
*Ninja Cap (Capture a turret while there are 2+ enemies within 30m)
*Swoop Interceptor (Block an opposing team's capture within "n" seconds of leaving a speeder) [credit: Kryptorchid]


Voidstar:
*Saboteur (successfully blow open a door in Voidstar)
*Bomb Disposal Unit (Disarm a bomb!)
*Raider (Extend the bridge)
*Secret Agent Man (Download the plans)


Group:
*Alderaan War Hero (Win with all 3 turrets captured) [credit: Kryptorchid]
*Shut Out (Don't let the enemy score a single point in Huttball)
*Shut Out (Don't let the enemy blow up a single door in Voidstar)


Generic (Heal/Dps/Tank):
*Eye on the Prize (Get 1k objective points)
*Objective Oriented Playing (Get 2.5k objective points)
*Rude Company (Successfully interrupt 10 abilities) [credit: Senefera]
*Meat Shield (Take 10k healing in a single life) [credit: Senefera]
*Clutch Healer (Heal someone who is below 20% health for more than 2.5k)
*The A-Team (Heal a player who has Guard active on you for over 10k in a single life)
*Checkup (Remove N negative status effects from allies) [credit: Blazehound]
*Immortal (Score 4 medals and do not die for the entire match.) [credit: insanelf]
*Massacre (Get N kills within T seconds.) [credit: insanelf]
*Dominator (Get the killing blow on the same player 3 times in a warzone match)[credit: Mossesman]



Please leave your thoughts and medal ideas below!


P.S. I think my medal names were clever.

Love it!

I'd also like to see medals awarded for team play like Not on my watch! = successfully interrupting X amount of casted heals.
I'd also like one for amount of healing taken.

Actually, I'd like an entire scoreboard section for interrupts and healing taken. I feel information like that is important.

Cool idea.

Point values on the generic ones might need boosted if any or all of the other were implemented though, as I would see the generics then becoming easy to obtain or easier at least. Unless thats the point.

I really like the interrupts idea.

Healing taken could be interesting but also counter-productive... this might favour people who stand in acid traps with a pocket healer. xP

I think healing taken in one life would be a good medal though, because you wont last long on the battlefield if you're dabbling your toes in acid and healing yourself for medals. :P

After a WZ is over only a handful of people break 2k objective points and I dont think I've ever seen anyone go over 3k. But I agree that all the constants are subject to change. 2.5k may be more appropriate.

Controlled Crowd - Spend a total of 60 seconds without control over your character.

Should bring medal counts up.
