Repair kits, medpacs, extinguishers, etc.

A medal in itself is just a useless trinket.

i could get behind this idea.

 

how about a gold reward, nothing huge,  between 1 and 10 gold depending ?

At the moment, I don't care about medals, so sure, maybe they could give rewards for getting them. However, I don't want to start becoming annoyed when I only just miss out on one, so I don't mind if they stay mostly pointless to avoid frustration.

Definitely one of your better ideas but we all know how WG feel about 'giving' things away ;)

 

Would this also promote some potentially selfish game play, even more so than at current)?

Well, they do it for Warships at least.

Once a day per medal.

I don't think so. Firstly, there should only be a small set of goodies, nothing that would make you stay awake at night dreaming about it - or sabotaging the efforts of your teammates. Secondly, players often only realise they have earned an epic medal when they see the battle results screen. During the battle we are mostly focused on the fight, at least I certainly am. Even the few Fadin's medals I have, each came as a total surprise to me, I was just shooting and shooting and shooting :)

Well, it would have be scaled relative to the rarity of the medal in question. Right now the medals are mostly useless..I have a modest collection but nobody hardly ever sees them. With the goodie rewards, nobody would still see them but at least I might get something useful thrown into the bargain.

Now getting to your weak point. Can you provide statistical evidence for all this?

That is sad, bro. But there are ways to overcome this. For instance, you can print the screenshot of your virtual medal haul on a T-shirt and wear it with pride.

Judging by your avatar, you should fit right in.

Definitely would be worth a trial on a smaller server, ie Asia, the only concern I would have is more killstealing simply to do get the reward, as well as more lols for the "wonderful" players who already like to deny players them already.

By epic, I assume top gun, high calibre, confederate and steel war are not included.

Ok if we say gold rewards, how much are we thinking for the various medals?

Say for the Raseiniai Heroes, 1000 gold?

Every time I get a steel wall in my Type 5, WG should send me a sandwich. I like sandwiches.
