Screengrab

In 8v8, the kills medals are granted at 4 and 8 kills (you can see I have both the 10 and 25 medals despite only having 20 kills) and the 6k and 60k protection medals aren't granted at all. I've confirmed it in pretty much every match I've played today, and my friends are getting the same thing.

Not working as intended. The patch notes don't say that the protection medals have been completely removed from the game.

Quote:
"Medals for Warzone Arenas have been adjusted to better reward characters that engage in meaningful participation for their role. In addition, the kill requirements were reduced to better reflect the content.

Soldier Medal now requires 4 kills, down from 10.
Commando Medal now requires 8 kills, down from 25. "

Are you saying that Warzones are not arenas and this should not apply? I'm now confused by what you think the issue is.

Yes, the medal changes were only supposed to apply to arena matches but apparently they also apply to the medals from 8v8 warzones. (The medal descriptions still show the old behaviour, they only act wrong)

The PTS notes stated it more clearly:

The 6k protection medal was unchanged and appears to have been completely removed all the same. Not mentioned in the patch notes once.

Hey all,

The medal changes only apply to Warzone Arenas, both ranked and unranked, and should not take effect in any 8v8 maps. Additionally, the 6k Protection medal should still exist.

We are looking into these! Thanks for the info!
