Can someone explain why there wasn't a medal hunt last week?  Was it just forgotten or do you no longer offer the mid-week on confederate?

Again, promotes selfish gameplay with no XP for the winning side. However, good bonus for 1v1/2 end-game momments, when a game can be won only by capping.

I've got no problem at all with people getting an Invader medal, as long as they earn themselves a Patrol Duty in the same battle :medal:

Actually, the description in the article is not complete. 80 base capture points alone will not earn you the Invader medal. You need to also get the highest XP on your team. I had a game this weekend where I got some 95 base capture points and thus I expected to be awarded the Invader medal, but I wasn't. I looked into it, and it turned out that the medal is only awarded if you also get the highest XP on your team.

So, kamikaze-capping at the beginning of a game will most likely not give you the Invader medal.

If you expect that from your team mates then you can surely expect that too from the enemy team which means easy kills and defender medals. 2 sides to every coin. :coin::blinky:

... and hopefully not run up a FV4202 repair bill the moment you poke your nose around that hill...
:hiding:

Saw the replay on QB's now. That was nasty.

Cos we need more people capping when 10 minutes left and it's 10 vs 4.

Got the medal but should it say if I got the extra experience or not since I don't see it anywhere.

Hmm so what you suggest is sit & hide then wait for both teams to almost destroy themselves then rush forward & cap?  :sceptic:
The only side of the coin I am interested in is having a good fair fight with even teams so the dice is not loaded in anyone's favor.
