Hello,
My English is very bad... because im from Germany :-P
So... i have the Veteran Assault Combat Badge.... and i played only 11 Hours the Assault... I think there is something wrong.
See my nickname [HfK]Mr.Sniper an you will see i told you the truth.

On German:

Servus,
Ich glaub bei Ubar is was falsch.Ich hab jetzt das Veteran Assault Combat Badge,hab aber nur 11 Stunden Assault gespielt;keine 15.Zum Beweis einfach mal in mein Profil rein schauen.Nick is [HfK]Mr.Sniper

Just to start off I AM NOT IN THE MOOD FOR AN ARGUMENT

I think UBAR is very good and relable

I just wish to float the idea that I got Veteran Spec Ops after 22 Kills IAR rather than the 20 UBAR quotes

There may be another criteria OR perhaps this is just a slight inacuracy in UBAR, Im just curious to see if anybody else experianced the same thing

I can however confirm that Vet Sniper, Support and Anti Tank are all correct as per UBAR

Thats my thoughts

Hey i dont want to be flamed so here goes.

I honestly do think UBAR before 1.03 patch was wrong with the medals as everyone knows NAVY CROSS MEC & PLA medals where earned and same with the Purple Heart.


For the post above me i got my Vet Sniper at 10 kills in a round and i believe its 20 correct so i think there still is some randomness factor

Correction on Far-East and Mid-East Service Ribbons. The requirement is to play on every map for at least 1 round (for mid-east every mec/usmc map and for far-east every pla/usmc map). I've tested this myself. Doesn't matter if you win or lose either. Just play for one round.

I don't really have proof, but I can tell you that I just got the sniper badge and it took 10 kills, and I I just got the AA badge, and it took 10 minutes.

EDIT: Actually, to be honest, I didn't get the sniper badge until I got 11 kills, but I figured 10 made more sense, and it was just delayed???

I got one, with proof.

Ubar states:
Rank: Master Sergeant
Score: 50000
Awards: Basic Knife Combat Badge, Basic Pistol Combat Badge, Basic Assault Combat Badge, Basic Anti-tank Combat Badge, Basic Sniper Combat Badge, Basic Spec Ops Combat Badge, Basic Support Combat Badge, Basic Engineer Combat Badge, Basic Medic Combat Badge, Basic Armor Badge, Basic Transport Badge, Basic Helicopter Badge, Basic Aviator Badge, Basic Air Defense Badge, Basic Ground Defense Badge

But, check out these stats:
http://bf2s.com/player/misanthrop/

He does not have basic Knife or basic pistol. Either the stated Req is wrong, or BF2s is reporting incorrectly. The player has said that he certainly does not have those badges in BFHQ though.

Ravlen -- Ack. Got me on that one. This wasn't an error so much in what reqs I have in my database, but in the way I displayed them. I forgot to clear the string for awards from one award to the next, so they just built on top of each other.

I have corrected this error and now you can see the actual required awards. Sorry bout that.

One thing I'd like to point out is the number of kills per round is also related to the number of TK's in that round.

I know this from experience with aa, Ubar has always been 100% on the bages and ribbons.

If the requirement is 23 like in vet explosives and you tk 2 people. Hey it happens with claymores. You have to get 25 kills in that round to get the badge.

Note that the other 2 kills don't nessarily have to be with that particular weapon knife etc, at least I believe this is true.

Cool! Thanks

Also, a minor quibble just in the description:

Master Gunnery Sergeant
Requirements:

Rank: Master Sergeant
Score: 50000
Unlock Available
---------------------------
Shouldn't the Rank Req be: "Master Sergeant OR First Sergeant"?
Same thing for Sergeant Major... and should Sergeant Major of the Corps have Master Sergeant OR Sergeant Major, and not Master Sergeant, as the rank req?

does  anyone actualy have the war college ribbon? the kill ratio requirement seems extreme, since most of us spend time on pubs, how much difrence can you really make if the guys dont ever listen to you as comander? my ratio is allmost 2 now but its a real strugle to keep it there, and clues? are we sure it has to be 3? its the only ribbon i dont have and seems expodentionaly harder than the others, i had hoped they might have dropped it a tad in the patch

The faction medals seem to require 250 hours played and 500 victories with that faction.  I have been looking over several accounts and those seem to be the two determinants for the awards.

Alright I honestly don't want to read through all of this, I read the first page. I'm just going to put out there that it took me somewhere between 10-15 minutes to get the Basic AA and Ground Defense badges.

Also, this isn't so much of an error as it is a pet-peeve. In the Ranks section shouldn't 2nd Lieutenant come before Sergeant Major of the Corps in the list. I mean, it makes no sense to follow a pattern of min requirements-max requirements and get all the way to the last two and put the one that is the grand-daddy of all badges before the badge that takes 50,000 less points to aqcuire.

Also, Sergeant Major of the Corps says it requires Master Sergeant rank, shouldn't that say 2nd Lieutenant?

From a reader point of view, yes. From my programming stance, it doesn't matter. By Master Sergeant, I read "Rank 8 or better". So if you are a first (rank 9) then you automatically qualify.

Honestly, I'm waiting for some people to reach this point value to see what happens. When someone actually does, I might update this thing further so we can see what's really going on.

It seems you don't realize what the Navy Cross/Golden Scimitar/People's Medallion requires: I was told that it required 100 times being in First Place IAR on either team 100 times...

My argument for that seeing as how i can't get in touch with the ones who told me this...If you check my stats http://bf2s.com/player/43453546/ . Notice I have 101 gold and 101 silver stars. I played crappy all day today and didnt play yesterday, but i received my Navy Cross the night before on the second to last game b4 i went to bed. Both rounds i was in first place on the US side...

If u want to test that theory... Check the stats of the Top Tank Whores...you will see that some ppl have the Golden Scimitar and they have a ton of gold stars...

You must have 100 games where u were in first place for YOUR team...doesnt matter what u came overall as long as ur first on ur team

By now, I simply wish EA hadn't bothered with ranks and awards. This stuff is giving me major headaches....

Frankly, I don't care any more. I will try to get my basic knife to see wether I get First Sergeant. After that, I will play for fun...

Lol. That's what you say now. But just wait. You'll have that, then you'll be like "Well, shit, that expert knife is only 40 kills away, I can do that..." and so it begins again. Sucker!

I know for a fact the requirements for First Sergeant Rank are incorrect.

I had a support ticket open at EA Support. He told me my current score (i am already Master Sergeant) was not enough to make it to First Sergeant. However i have all the req. mentioned on ubar (all basic badges and such)

So i pointed the GM to this website. He told me that the info here was not entirely correct.

Unfortunately he would not tell me what the exact requirements are. He did however give me some hints. He told me i didnt qualify yet because of certain kit score, points and time tallies.

So i started to do some comparing stats with 3 First Sergeants. My conclusion so far is that you probably need to play either medic or support for a certain time. This will obviously result in higher resupply/revive score.
I am very confident in my source of information, and until they stop dancing around the point and come out with an official guide to the requirements for various ranks/awards/etc, then I would appeciate it if they'd stop blowing smoke up our collective asses.

Additionally, I can tell you from [url=http://bf2s.com/player/18282083/]this guy[/url] or perhaps [url=http://bf2s.com/player/43989437/]this one[/url] that medic/support points have jack shit to do with getting the rank. And if they do, it's so insignifcant as to not even matter. (What, 10 heal points to get First Srg? Sure...)
If you look at my playerstats Shuriken.NL (through gameslave.co.uk) you will see i got all the req. prior to being promoted to master sergeant. So i guess something must be wrong. Anyhow, i will keep you guys posted on my progress. I will start doin some serious medic whoring. And if i get the promotion before getting to 50.000 points i will let you guys know
You could very well be a victom of a glitch in the system.    Where you got your veteran badge and it did not credit you your basic badge in something.

I had been told about this glitch just short of 20K points   I needed basic knife badge and had 45 total kills  luckily i got my 7 in 1 round when actually trying so that my globals before that round were not over the 50 needed for the basic badge. 

Im not sure if the information on this glitch is correct as all I have is hearsay and rumor on it  although as you can see by my stats [url=http://bf2s.com/player/44569463/]here[/url] that i did manage first sgt.

So even though thousands of other people get promoted to Gunnery Sergeant at 8,000 points, just because you don't makes UBAR wrong? Go play on an Official EA server and see what happens.

yeah, well....as I won't get first sergeant anyway, there is no immediate need to go for the basic knife thingy.
But you're probably right...

time will tell.

But I assure you I will quit BF2 if I ever discover I'm solely playing for the ranks...
