My friend claims he got TWICE, 500 points at once, with one action defending / attacking the titan.
is that possible?

Here is one story he told me:
He was attacking the titan, him and another 10 people, there was 1 console left, so the whole gang was defending that console, he popped a 'nade on the corridor and killed like 3 dudes, so he got the 500 Points Titan Attack...

And then he said it happened again....

Is that possible? Have any ever heard of that?

Well... i suppose it could happen twice, if one's stats were to not show up for a round, they could(in theory, mind you) receive that badge twice. Other than that, your friend is full of shit.

there are problems with stats servers so people get an award more than once. im not sure if it would actually count both times though.

They do count more than once, today I received my basic titan commander for the third time... I'm not complaining.

Edit: hit the wrong quote button.

So he got a award that was worth 500 points..

His stats didn't upload yet.

Played another game got the reward again, and another 500 points.

and, i know how many hours he plays, there is no way he is around 2800 points... so that 500 points story is plausible

It went towards career points not score.

500 points = vetern knife badge. Easy. or you can go for War College and get 2000 points

This sort of thing happens all the time, so here goes.

How to get your badges twice (or atleast how it's worked for me twice)

It's a lot easier to do these kind of things for the kit badges or ones that only require a certain amount of kills in a round, preferably as few as 10

Fulfil the Global requirements
Find a server which seems to be balanced, IE long rounds.
Go into a server and wait until the start of a round to use the kit/weapon in question
Once the round starts kill the set amount of people as quickly as possible
Once you have done that you should get your first badge hurray beer for you.
Now log straight out, this next part is mostly dependant on luck, but if you picked the right server the first time it's fairly guaranteed
Log back into another server, again if you are lucky you will find a server that is near the start of the round
Get the same amount of kills with the weapon/kit that you did before, if you are lucky you'll get the award and points again.

How it works:

When you get an award the game automatically awards you those points, but it does not add the actual award to your stats until the end of the round when the server flings all the data back to EA where it is all stored (this is actually quite quick, even if it doesn't show up in your BFHQ), if you can do it quick enough both servers will still think that you are eligible for the award and once you fill the in a round requirements it will award it to you again. I'm sure if you where insanely lucky you could get it a third time, this is however different to the duplication that can sometimes happen on it's own within long time spans.

Anyway, happy times, if anyone else can 100% confirm this I'd be grateful.

What I read about the "private bug" is, that you sometimes really get the career points again, but other times you won't get any points recorded at all! So playing as an private seems to be pure gambling.

Yes you have to be on the losing team defend the titan when your shields are down than wait until enemys shields are down attack them and boom 2 awards. I almost have done this but the round ended.

They are not talking about gold, silver or bronze medals that are awarded to the top three players at the end of each round.
They meant the basic, veteran, and expert [that happen to be coloured, bronze, silver and gold] badges that you can get with time and then kill requirements.
