Why did they remove the Kickback-related Medals Anyway?

18 replies 398 views Edited Jan 8, 2013

While posting about something related to this in another topic, I thought about this. Why did ND remove these medals? There was nothing wrong with them and were pretty cool as they rewarded you for killing players who had an advantage against you (Speedy G, Militia Man), killing enemies before they Smoke Bombed, or killing enemies with a kickback (Cluster Bomb, Creepy Crawler). There was nothing broken about them as they weren't exactly easy medals to get, and in Creepy Crawlers case, it takes a while to get it anyway, so one medal or two doesn't make a big difference.

I suppose its too many medals that a player could earn from a couple of cluster kills. There have been times i've thrown a cluster, killed 3-4 enemys and have 10 medals again.

If you think something is impossible, you’ll make it impossible.

I don't know why they couldn't have just raised the bar for aquiring them.

 

On another note, why did they remove the Wipeout medal anyways...? Its a much more better medal to see someone get on those "best of"clip shows.

I thought that you had to kill an enemy with the core grenade for that. And that you didn't get the medal if you got a kill with one of it's "kids".

I know, ND also removed the "Perfect" medal.

Why get rid of the "take shots in your riot shield while its on your back" medal? SO many questions, so few answers

They also removed TWE from Plunder. ND's logic is baffling sometimes...

Probably because it made it so much easier to get medals for another kickback. I mean like someone said, its possible already with cluster and mega bomb to get your kickback killing 2-4 guys at once, and getting a medal I think "clusters revenge" was it for each person you kill with it just adds to it.

 

They also took out medals like "up here" and "down here" since im sure those woulda been cake to get. Most of the medals taken out I'm sure were cuz of the ease of getting them. Others like perfect and such well I don't know really, maybe it will promote camping for people wanting the medal?
