I like to propose the Introduction of a "STO Academy Combat Action Badge" (name open for discussion). This Badge should not be treated like a Commendation for promotion but rather to serve as a visual representation of a members efforts to complete an intense set of Ground PvE Queues, Space PvE Queues, Small Craft PvE Queues as well as Action in Adventure & Battle Zones. In essence, it is meant to just a visual statement of a members awesomeness, so one can brag in the Forum Signature. Big Grin

Such a Badge should be made available in three degrees (Bronze, Silver and Gold):
  • Bronze level:
    • 6 of the current 14 Ground PvE Queue Maps on at least advanced difficutly
    • 9 of the current 24 Space PvE Queue Maps on at least advanced difficulty
    • both current Small Craft PvE Queue Maps on advanced difficulty
    • 4 of the current 10 Adventure / Battle Zones
  • Silver level:
    • 10 of the current 14 Ground PvE Queue Maps on at least advanced difficutly
    • 17 of the current 24 Space PvE Queue Maps on at least advanced difficulty
    • both current Small Craft PvE Queue Maps on advanced difficulty
    • 7 of the current 10 Adventure / Battle Zones
  • Gold level:
    • all current 14 Ground PvE Queue Maps on at least advanced difficutly
    • all current 24 Space PvE Queue Maps on at least advanced difficulty
    • both current Small Craft PvE Queue Maps on advanced difficulty
    • all current 10 Adventure / Battle Zones
Here is the list of eligible Maps (Click to View)

You most certainly have noticed, that in order to get this Badge on the lowest level, you need the Ground Warfare Specialist, Space Warfare Specialist, Small Craft Warfare Specialist and Expedition Specialist Commendations.

Why do I propose this? Actually I have this idea for quite some time now. It is my sincere hope, that such a Badge would motivate a large number of our fleet members to engage in Fleet activities more often, hopefully led by the veterans amongst us (especially those aiming for the upcoming Fleet Commodore rank). Considering the amount of Maps, this wouldn't be accomplished overnight but rather takes some time. So by having members to grind for this, fleet activity should increase. At least that's what I hope for.
I like this idea as well. We have a small group of three fleet members that run STFs almost every night. We are always trying to get others to join us but have little luck. Be nice to find a method or idea to increase motivation in this area. On a good night we average around 15 or more STFs. It's something we enjoy doing very much.
hmmm

fascinating...
Its a good idea in principle, but all it seems to do is combine 4 current commendations into 1 commendation with 3 levels.

Ain't supposed to be a Commendation and it's not supposed to be considered for promotions either.

I'm for anything that helps promote Fleet Activities, once I'm back from this trip I'm hoping to start organising more STF runs for those of us playing in the GMT time zone, other time zones are of course welcome Tongue
