IMHO promoting Top Gun, Invader and Scout is promoting bad teamplay, especially if it is rewarded with a huge 2000 XP bonus. But we had this discussion quite a few times since the "Medal Hunts" started. Patrol Duty, Sniper and Confederate are great and I appreciate them. But please make the rewards smaller and extend the Medal Hunts maybe for a whole week. It would help keeping my sanity on wednesdays...

Couldn't these be made a permanent feature? It would allow people even on the losing side to get enhanced XP for good play even if the rest of the team doesn’t pull their weight.

It would mean more to the players getting a sniper or a top gun, Pools medal etc if they also got a reward in XP too.

Then on your midweek  medal hunt the 200Xp for Top gun could be enhanced to 2000Xp like you do now.

For those who can't access the portal:

Commanders,

It’s once again time for our Mid-Week Medal Hunt!  This is your chance to earn extra experience by demonstrating your aptitude on the battlefield.
This week, we want you to obtain the Top Gun medal by scoring more victories (at least six) than anyone else on your team.
The Medal Hunt will be active from Wednesday April 17th 07:10 CEST (GMT+2) until Thursday 18th April 07:00 CEST.  During this period, each time you earn the Top Gun medal, you will be rewarded with an additional 2,000 experience points!

This additional experience will be automatically credited to your account when you receive the medal.  There is no need to register or take any special action to take part in the event.

Though theoretically you can get play to get a Top Gun by only firing the last shot, I recon that generally you'd screw up in the chance.  Normally the guy that gets Top Gun has played pretty well.  Invader is pretty hard to play for as rushing to the cap gets you killed not a medal.  In any case you can only get it if you win.

Only scout can really be said to be poinless and the reward is 200XP for that, not 2000.
