No medals distributed for 10 year or tourney, and no mention of Rum in herald per the usual that occurs when ASCN wins

Medals will be coming very shortly - we're just double and triple-checking the scripts to hand them out, as this will be an automated process for regional tournaments thereafter, so medals will arrive within about half-an-hour of the tournament close in the future.

As the regional tournaments are fully automated things going forward (so no one will have to wait for us devs to actually do things, such as assign chosen totems, award medals etc - they'll just happen on their own)... there won't be any mentions in The Herald for the winners, as that currently requires manual writing/editing.  

We may look to automate the Herald "congratulations" in the future, on some sort of automatically filled-in template, but there's really no need to imagine any deep nefarious plotting or deliberate snub :)

In case it's not clear, these regional tournaments that run automatically every 3 months are *not* like pre-existing tournaments that we've manually run in the past, and this is much for the better, for everyone involved.

Cheers,

SC

The Herald should commission articles from users for prestige currency. I am sure this would be subject to editor's approval by the devs but it would allow the Herald to stay more up to date and be more interesting. I rarely click through it all, but having users give input would imho be a huge bonus.

Here's a thought. It seems to matter to some people that there are no longer medals for winning a regional square (presumably too much work for the devs). A dev designed medal is considered 'better' than a user designed one. If at the end of a tourney a dev designed medal appeared in the alliance medal list  and disappeared at the next tournament, the alliance could then decide whether to spend prestige and award the medals for people who fought for the square. It could be the same medal all the time with just a name change for period and region. It might increase dev income.
