There are still some odities in the metavers, I have suddenly been awarded a medal for "Former 3rd Place Player" witch is not correct, I have never been higher than my current rank witch is 24th.

And yet I don't have my former 3rd place medal (though admittedly that was before the extra medals were added)

That is odd.. maybe a burp in the metaverse again. It does happen from time to time.

I never have seen a former first, second, or third place legitimately bestowed upon a former top 3 ranked player. Instead, this previous number 3 medal pops up seemingly at random. The "former top 25" medal seems to work just like Darth Kryo has.

As a general rule . . .the metaverse never works perfectly - sometimes you don't get credit for a game and the total game count is seldom correct. But it works well enough to keep some of us interested. Have fun and enjoy the medal.

I went from 3rd to 4th place when Weyrleader decided to become whole again. Guess what? No former third place medal.

If I would quit and drop to 26, I would get a former top 25 medal but like I said, I have never seen a former number 1, 2, or 3 medal properly bestowed. Has anyone else?

And, no, it's not a big deal. Usually people drop when they quit playing and so they don't notice anyway. But, it would be kind of cool if it worked. Greldon, Ray the Wanderer, Free Tibet, and other number one players deserve a little tag. It was a good thought that never worked out in my opinion.

I never got my ex-2nd place medal either (I fought with tech for that!) - I still play a bit, but haven't a lot of free time at the moment.
