meh ...

i just want to get away from techie ...
it dosnt have the 'professional' ring to it that would make me proud to wear that tag ... 
also geek and nerd implies stange skiny guy with bad skin strange glasses and no social life since he is 24/7 infront of his PC. I'm not saying this is not how it is false, but not as desirebile as the other tags

.. you dont want the
  • modders to get called 'tacky engine tinker' 
  • the Media Managers 'Youtube Clip Cutter' .. 
  • or the Mission Creators 'Rat Maze Maker' 

orthought i like some of the names =)


cheers moeses


ps: Tech Tutor ftw

pps: Sydney Harbour (also called Port Jackson) is a natural harbour. It is on the East Coast of Australia in Sydney. It is also the location of the famous Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Perhaps we just keep it simple Moeses and go with 'Technical Support'.

The badges are supposed to be a fun way to reward people, recognise achievements etc... so ALL feedback is valuable and taken in good faith.

Neato. Remember having a similar setup with my Napoleonic Wars regiment a few years back lol. Very nice looking, arka. nice one


Not to sound like an ingrate but will we be getting unique ribbons for different campaigns? I.e one ribbon for OP Herrick, another different pattern for Tellic, and another for Granby\Banner.

Also, what's this about the Asset awards? Who gets the ribbon when it's accomplished? The pilots\crew? Troop CO? Coy CO? Zeus?


already think I should have 3/4 of those listed ribbons Image

Yep, can make campaign specific ribbons :)

Idea was for the entire crew of the asset :)

I see the air asset medal is based on this:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Distinguished_Flying_Cross_(United_Kingdom)

Quote:
"an act or acts of valour, courage or devotion to duty whilst flying in active operations against the enemy"


That's what you should get an award for, rather than not getting your aircraft destroyed. We're not that bad are we that we need to reward people for not being shot down/crashing?

And can't we just call it the same name too (Distinguished Flying Cross)?

We intentionally avoided ribbons which could be overly subjective. And as the pilot is usually the only person that would be privy to their own actions, we thought it would be best to leave it to something which could be gauged fairly. I.e. keeping your vehicle in one piece ;).

As Goodson said, there will most likely be more. Once we get a feel for how these are received we can always start brainstorming ideas :). 

Edit: Not all of these were intended to be overly difficult (and in the 'Asset' ribbons case, incentive to not kill a troops worth of passengers). Nevertheless, I'll offer any game in the Steam store to the first person who can achieves all 3 'Leadership' ribbons :P
