How to acquire or lose Medals?
By successfully attacking another player's base or by successfully defending your own base from an attack.
Conditions for Successful/Failed Attacks
At the beginning of any attack, there is a number of medals any user can gain from a Victorious battle. That number of medals they can win represents a Victorious battle from 100% base destruction. For the variety of outcomes possible from any base attack, the sequential, pre-existing conditions are as follows:
<25% damage = No loss of Medals for the Attacker and no Damage Protection to the defender
25% damage = 12 hour Damage Protection (DP) and 20% medals awarded for defender
50% damage = First star to the attacker, 10% medals awarded to the attacker, and 24 hour DP for the defender – even though the attacker will earn Medals, they will still receive a Defeat message
Outpost destroyed = Second star for the attacker (60% medals awarded to attacker)
SEQUENTIAL: First star must be gained prior to OP star
PRE-EXISTING: If OP destroyed on attack start, give second star as soon as 50% damage star is attained
100% damage = Third Star and 100% medals awarded to attacker
Victory = 2 stars (e.g., 50% + OP destroyed)
Partial points awarded based on conditions satisfied
Depending on the success in battle, whether the attacker earns one, two, or three stars, more or less Medals will be awarded to the victor.
How many Medals can be earned from an attack?
The number of medals that can be earned varies differently from attack to attack. It is dependent on the number of medals the attacker and defender own and how large the gap in each player's medal count is.
A player with a low medal count attacking a player with a high medal count has the potential to earn significantly more medals than if the attack and defender had similar medal counts.
Adversely if a player with a high medal count attacks a player with a really low count they may not earn medals even on a 3 star attack.
Either way the maximum amount of medals that can be earned or lost in a single attack is 49.
I lost Medals in an attack and it wasn't my fault! Can I get my medals back?
CS as a policy does not credit medals to players via tickets as it is a delicate economy and doing so would detrimentally affect the PvP environment. We reserve the right to suspend or change this policy at any time.
