I'm going to create a new thread for this, and sticky it for the time being. When Chuy gets the time to update UBAR, I'll remove the sticky. I don't want this to get buried in the other thread.

I'm not so sure about the vet tranport one, but maybe it's just me.

I have well over 25h in it, yet I can't seem to get the badge.

You still probably have to get the 5 road kills in a round, but I'm sure I've just done that. What counts as a road kill again?

Shooting a guy that crosses the road at a zebra crossing is NOT a road kill.

The changes listed are ONLY the requirement that were actually changed. If it's not listed above, then assume that the other reqs are still in place. (maybe I'll go down the list and list them all, it's a lot of work though)

i completely agree with stryyker on this one.  Awards (especially expert ones) are MEANT to be hard to get, so that you won't have 100,000 people running around with Expert Knife... but whatever

there are several changes that i do agree with:

- the lowered Explosive badge requirements
- the increased time for Expert Heal (i never understood why it was only 15h....)
- the lowering of requried kills for Vet and Expert AA and GD badges (don't agree with removing the time req though... i think they should have lowered it... but not gotten rid of it)
- WCR changes (although, only 200 wins seems a bit small... but whatever
- chaning of the higher rankings from required Expert badges to veteran and Time played


go me

erm.. i think there's a formula been created for it..

("number of days in month" /  "number of posts by styyker in said month")³    x  "number of threads"
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                           (number of people in the church of polarbearz)




*edit = changed formula *
