Re: C12 Intel/Battleplan Sharing Thread

I agree that its a lot, even too much, work, but disagree otherwise. We should probably have some kind of repository of past campaign ribbons so we don't have to keep making new ones every time. I think Murkey said he has access to some of the old CATA ribbons, and given that both Kidding and Alex are here we could easily ask their permission for their work to be used in successive campaigns.

Re: C12 Intel/Battleplan Sharing Thread

I'd be more than happy to pass this work on for other campaigns to use. I think ribbons do actually have some decent value and cutting out the work of making new ones makes a lot of sense to me. Something I did with these ribbons was try and make a uniform colour amongst the thin bars to unify them all as APN ribbons, changing that bar of colour is pretty easy to do and is something that me and a T-CON could do prior to a campaign using the primary colour of either team, making it a really easy switch. I can also provide the psd I used to make the ribbons so either team's Propaganda HCO can make special ribbons if they want.

Cutting out the work of setting up all the ribbons and requirements pre-campaign and just recycling them I think makes ribbons make a lot more sense for a team to use them.

(Also, Alex, what happened to your ribbons? They've suddenly disappeared from the doc?)

I'm game if one of the teams want to use them I'll help but on a personal opinion and from a view of a guy who loves to do photoshop, I'd rather make my own original stuff than recycle.

Re: C12 Intel/Battleplan Sharing Thread

It's a team decision, in the end. Just stated that I personally dislike them, because in the 15 years I play in BF campaigns now I never have seen a fair and universally motivating approach to handing out ribbons. Rather, it more often than not caused some dissent among those players who are less "loud" (=Raidonrai) and flaunt their achievements less. Their achievements tend to get unnoticed and hence unrewarded.
Not a huge deal though, I understand that a lot of people also like these ribbons .

Re: C12 Intel/Battleplan Sharing Thread

But dude that area attack on Vadso tho

Legit tho I agree with Senshi on this and said so at the beginning of the tournament as well, the sort of emotional reward that someone gets out of having a little sticker under their sig really doesn't equate to the potential negative attitude that can arise out of someone's achievements being neglected. Any active effort to ensure that achievements don't go unnoticed will only add another level of unnecessary "work" to the SL/NCO roles that really just isn't necessary.

If Vista got a ribbon, we would never hear the end of it.
