This is part of a response regarding the Distinguished Blade Medal:

Unfortunately, you're leaving factional warfare on June 2nd, and not rejoining it till June 18th, was the reason for Monavic Doombringer's exclusion from receiving it. I'm sorry, and I realise how disappointing this may be to you in view of your record, but in view of the main requirement for the receiving of this medal, I'm afraid I cannot comply with your request. I can only assure you, that I would readily decide differently, but since the criteria for the handing out of this medal was decided upon by the game design and content staff, the policy we're obligated to follow in this matter does not allow me to do so. I'm sorry.

Best regards,
Senior GM

This answer leads me to believe that if the GM's had there way the medal would have been given to all deserving parties, but the "game design and content staff" for some reason decided that would be too much work to determine. I have all but given up on getting the blade medal myself. My point is, I am assuming CCP intends on giving out more medals in the future. There is no reason to think that those awards will not have the same issue of not everyone that deserves it, recieves it.

Unless all medals are to remain the jokes that they are, I think that the GM's need the authority to issue medals in the future.

P.S. please support this tread

Mate I got exaclty the SAME reply in my petition. Copy pasta ftw???

CCP is this your idea of customer service? I feel like a very valued customer all of a sudden.

Anyway I have asked my petition to be escalated to the design team because it is a design FLAW and GMs seem to be bound by the developers' decision.

Just to add the only difference in my case is that I was only gone from the 12th of June to the 16th.

I'd be annoyed too, I suppose they must have rules. The real question is, why did you leave at all ;)

Okay, so I didn't follow every post in all the caldari medal drama threads, but here's one thing that I've been wondering this whole time...

CCP said they were going to do this like a week in advance, or more. So... why didn't all you 'deserving' caldari players/corps just re-enlist and wait for it, then go about your business?

More important, why are you filling the petition queue with it (and then whine when they give you a copy paste response), when it has nothing to do with GMs?

Actually, it was announced about a week in advance, and then about 5-6 days early, the medal was awarded. A lot of caldari who had left were planning to get in by the announced deadline, but then CCP didn't adhere to the deadline and awarded the medals early.

Chatgris is correct. As for why leaving? I for one wanted to try the epic arc which is impossible to do while in the caldari militia. I was just "retired" for 4 days. This is my petition response (notice the similarityShocked):

"A specific criteria applies to those, who received the medal, which states, that the receiver had to be a member of the Caldari State faction from: 2009.05.29 (at the latest), and remained a member (at least) till 2009.06.23.

I'm afraid, Wallinstar's departure from, and subsequent rejoining in the Caldari State's factional warfare from the 12th till the 16th June, excludes him/her from receiving the medal. I would most readily decide differently in this matter, but since this was a decision reached by the game design and content staff, our policy has been laid out quite clearly, I'm not in a position to make any exceptions. I'm sorry. "


The bold is the script they run.

The medal was to be given out on the 23rd, I was back in the militia on the 18th and still did nt get the award. The point of this post is in the future CCP needs to take more care to insure awards are given to the people who did the work.

Wow what a drama. It's such a nice medal, and only 4224 distinguished people received it, and you will never ever have one, for the rest of your life. Find out who exactly made you leave militia for that period of time and kill him over and over again, until he has no isk to pay for his clone upgrade.
You can't be a Caldari hero anymore. The only way to get one is to join the opposite faction and conquer all that 101 systems back and then stay in the militia, not leaving it. Only then you can get such a fine medal and become s part of the background storyline, a part of history. No medal, no honour, live with it.
