Good news for those who wanted more medals (everyone?) - we've added more medals! They are:

Militia Must Die (for destroying Militia)
War Drags On (for the number of weeks played)
Experienced General (for the number of games played)
Victorious General (for the number of games won)

Plus, there are 6 new 'anti-medals', given for losing games, battles and units. They are there purely for fun, and only bring 1SP when earned.

Hopeless General (for the number of games lost)
Hopeless Admiral (for the lost naval battles)
The Field Is Lost (for the lost PvP battles)
Left To Rust (for the lost land units)
Swallowed By The Sea (for the lost land units)
Crashed Into Dust (for the lost air units)

The other cool thing we did with medals was adding progress bars in the 'Stats and medals' screen in the game. This is something that has been requested quite a few times, and we finally got around to do it. Additional info panel for medals now only shows your current stats, at what points the next medal comes and how many SP you're getting for it.


Now, to Coalitions. After a lengthy discussion in this thread, we decided to add seasons to Coalition Wars. Seasonal standings appear on the front page and the Coalitions index page. Even though Last season standings are shown retrospectively, it would be wrong to give out any trophies for it, so we'll start doing it from this season (which ends on the 29th of February).

Note that CP (Coalition Points) have been replaced by Competence (exactly the same thing / 1000) and Earned CP is now the main representation of Coalition Points.

First. (^_^)

Nice enhancement of the Coalition System, I think this will be great.

The medals tweaks are a really cool update as well; how will we get them, though? Will counting for the necessary stats begin now or do we get the medals if we get new stats (i.e. killing a few more Militia so the stats are updated and recognised by the new system)?

No, medals are added retroactively. (much like you get golds and crimsons if you have the stat numbers required when you go Premium)

That's what I was trying to say by "if we get new (updated) stats". Makes sense, I hope it works...

I think SP gain wasn't calculated correctly.

I got the points for the silver medals, but not for the bronze ones before those.

Hugo said this already, but the CW point system needs fixing. It's not fair if a clan like BT2 gets 72 points for beating Dalmati Pups, whereas if we beat a cln we only get normal points.

Http://afterwind.com/cln/cln.php?cln_id=57

they beat a new cln and got +71 and +60, we beat the #2 cln at the time (the most possible competence we could get) and we got +48. I don't think it is even possible to win seasons for stronger clns when they can fight newly made clns and get that much lol

you could probably make a coalition, lose a whole bunch for 1 season without placing, come back another season win 10 games(getting tons of points) then after 10 games you just keep losing. You would win every season after that due to the gains. You don't even need to fight a strong coalition(as shown by the fact they got +71 from a new cln) so there is no risk of losing the game really.

The CW point system as it is now is flawed. Basically, more points are awarded to training clans (even when they face weak clans -- see fruit's post above), leading to training clans being at the top of the rankings. This, obviously, is not representative on who the best coalition of the season truly is; which is the point of seasons, right? Personally, I and a few others agreed that having a tournament-type event for the top 5 ranked coalitions would be the only way of determining who the true champion is. At this rate, the only 1st place coalitions will be training clans....and that's not right.
