Look, I personally will never plan to get some of those awards. But my point is those who do....have no life.
They are just trying to make it a real as possable and a few of the weapons that are unlocks are not even in the hands of the USMC or Army yet.
Realistic? Don't make me giggle. If they wanted realistic they shouldn't have let privates fly jets or headshot wounds be cured by friggin SHOCK PADDLES. The great and all powerful BlazinUK, #1 on the charts hasn't come close to getting all the medals yet. And hes a COMPLETE loser.
i heard that that account is shared amoung 12 people, that is why it is the highest.
Sorry foir the bump, But I just wanted to add:
A reason they migh have made the awards so high is maybe because they DON'T want you to "Farm" for them, they want you to eventually get them naturally.
As such, there won't be the 10 hours Quake Effect of getting everything and calling themselves Profetionals.
I disagree, I doubt they made them that high to prevent stat padders from getting all the medals, it's as apocalypse_kid said more having to do with how much time you want to invest into Battlefield 2.
People who have invested a lot of time in Battlefield 2 have earned the medal or ribbon.
What I like about these outrageous standards for getting medals and badges etc, is that there is always going to be something to unlock. I love the Idea that ive been playing bf2 on anf off, and there is still stuff left to work for and earn. I'd rather play for another year and have the chance to unlock more things and earn more things, than to play for 4 more hours and unlock everything with not alot of skill, and hard work that you would need for some of the unlocks bf2 has to offer.
