Lesser medals gained when better is achieved
« on: September 09, 2011, 10:37 »

Unfortunately there's no easy way to make this suggestion into a title, but the idea is extremely simple: for ANY medal set, whenever you gain a medal, you'll also gain any additional medals that would automatically have been granted. Prior to the Heroic series it didn't matter, but now that badges depend on getting a certain number of unique medals, it is probably a pain for players to have to grab Compet-n Silver/Gold/Platinum separately, especially in being conscious of having to specifically win the game between 20-30 (or 10-20) minutes.

If there is still opposition to this, I can't think of a good reason for it! Alternatively, we could fiddle around with the Heroic series to make it work with a specific type of medal (that would be added), and that those medals wouldn't come in sets.

It hasn't come up for me on account of my sucking at the game, but I fully support this, simply because it doesn't make sense to not get credit for lesser accomplishments now that the Heroic series is in.

Eeyup. If lesser medals would be gained together with better ones, I'd have gotten minor, major icarus, silver gold and plat compet-n all in one run (and so would P).
At the other hand it keeps you more busy and makes the game even more replayable. :P

I completely agree.  I had to leave it running in the background for 8 minutes just to get the silver compet-n badge.  No game should force you to stop playing.

Alternatively if you qualify for badge/medal and you have it, but you don't have lesser one you additionally get the one that is one step lower(or two steps lower).
