crosses the particular milestone associated with the medal.
Service medals are successive and only the latest medal will
appear in each Member's Profile and on the uniform page.

earned the first six. Also, this is the only RS-Wide Medal

Order of Precedence

The order of precedence of is determined first the level of the medal (Levels 1- 9) and then by its category. If two different medals are worn from the same level and category, the one worn for longer comes before the newer one. The following list indicates the order of precedence by category:

  1. Commendation
  2. Honorary
  3. Unit Commendation
  4. Combat
  5. Campaign Medals
  6. Accomplishment
  7. Service
  8. Graduation
  9. Academy Medals

Note: Former Fleet Medals are not shown on the Uniform, hence they are not included in the Order of Precedence. Academy Medals are always worn after the last RS-Wide ribbon (e.g. if a member's last RS-Wide medal is the Violet Cluster, and has 3 graduation and 1 commendation medals from the Academy, the 4 Academy medals come after the VC, but in their own Order of Precedence).

Retired Medals

Any RS-Wide medals not mentioned here, or listed as being phased out should still be available for viewing within a segregated and un-issuable area, with brief statements about which medals to use instead.

The following list of medals are retired:

  • Eye of the Jedi
  • RSIO Assistance Medal
  • Golden Eyes
  • Unit Commander's Commendation
  • Fleet Commander's Medal of Excellence

Rules for MP Combat Medals

1. The multiplayer medals are not applicable for ongoing events such as ITOD's, ladders or weekly reoccurring competitions.

2. The Citations are awarded to the recipient based on their number of standard gaming hours within the competition and the outcome of the matches. Each group that supports a multiplayer game within an interclub/clan competition shall establish how many minutes each match is worth. In order to determine the standard gaming hours, take standard match length and multiply that by the number of matches played by the individual.

3. With the MP combat medals being based on standardize time of play, the Fleet Commander gives authority to the Medal Officer to make guidelines and have final approval for the number of minutes which a match equals. This should be based on the game in question, and the type of gameplay on that game. Fleet CO's will use the MO's guidelines to create a proposal for each game and gameplay type. The Medal Officer will either approve the proposal, or request more information or adjustments. No medals may be issued for a particular game and gameplay type until the Medal Officer approves the number of minutes applied to each match.

Possible Examples of Standard Match Lengths:

Empire at War                   20 min
Battlefront Match               30 min
Battlefront II Conquest Match   30 min
Battlefront II 2-CTF Match      30 min
X-Wing Vs. Tie Fighter Match    10 min
X-Wing Alliance Match           10 min
Jedi Academy or Outcast         10 min

Example of application: If a person plays 10 matches in a week long Battlefront II Conquest competition event, they are assumed to have played five hours and are eligible for the appropriate award medal. Win/loss will also be factored in as appropriate.

4. The Violet Cluster is a special medal awarded to members who suffer grievous losses in MP combat. It is awarded in addition to other medals that the member may qualify for. The suggested qualifications for a Violet Cluster awarding are at least 3 losses and a winning percentage no greater than 24% in a single event. Hence, 0-3 or 1-4 would qualify, but 1-3 would not.

Operations Manual Changes

"In the Rebel Squadrons, you may find yourself being recognized for your efforts with a medal or award. Medals and awards fall into two categories: RS-Wide and Academy. Both type of medals will show up in the listing of medals which is stored in your RS Roster Profile. RS-Wide medals also show up on your Uniform, which is accessible from your RS Roster Profile. For an example, see the profile of former Fleet Commander, ADM Rahj Tharen.

"Any member of the Rebel Squadrons can nominate any member for an RS-Wide medal, except when otherwise specified by the medal description.

"The Fleet Commander is responsible to evaluate each RS-Wide medal nomination, either directly or through an authorized executive staff member (such as the RS XO or the Medal Officer). This evaluation includes consulting the necessary parties and determining the merit of the nomination. If the nomination is warranted, the medal is awarded by the Fleet Commander or authorized executive staff member. If not warranted, the nomination is rejected. Some high medals may have restrictions as to who may award them. Also, as a body, the High Command may evaluate a nomination, determine its merit and award or reject it.

"Club awards in the Rebel Squadrons are divided into several categories, listed here in importance from least to greatest: Graduation, Service, Accomplishment, Campaign, Combat, Unit Commendation, Honorary, and Commendation. Combat Medals are divided into two subcategories, with the latter being greater: ITOD Medals and Multiplayer Medals. Additionally, each medal is assigned to a level, which is used to establish its ranking within the category and its overall importance. Below, each category and medal is listed in category rank order.

In addition, the remainder of that Ops webpage should be updated per the medals in this proposal.

Additional Considerations

Uniforms

New uniforms were created along with new graphical representations of the medals. The uniforms display ribbons for the medals, rather than the medals themselves. Along with this, we also revised the rank and position badges as well. Additional trinkets, like squadron patches and the like, might be something to look into developing.

History

The first medals were developed in the collaborative effort of Greedo 96 and Super in 1997. These first medals formed the foundation of a new club wide system for rewarding the work of the RS membership. Some of the medals had no practical use at the time but were created for future use, such as the Violet Cluster. The evolution of the medal system continues to current times. Although most of the original medals are still in use, the whole medal system has vastly expanded and evolved well beyond the original set up as each successive generation improves upon the previous.
