    I'm staying in Veteran for a bit. Why? I want the experience of playing against the best remaining veterans in th spring ANBs. So I plan to hold at level 99 this season, and move up sometime in the spring. (In between is farming time!)

    If you want to stay casual, stay casual. if you wanna go causal, get causal.

    Pro's of staying in vets:
    casual play, take all day
    no stress to be the best
    no need for speed
    you grow as you go
    competition not your mission
    then you settle for any medal
    if that's your style, then stay awhile

    Con's of staying in vets
    wanna develop faster, move to master

    Tin Man I was basing my comments on the Dev's originally proposed threshold for the Master's league. I agree that changing the threshold to TL120 does decrease the numbers a bit. However, I stand by my original position that if you are pushing to top of the leaderboard to earn medals then you really have only one shot. Even using the TL120 threshold most of the top 100 BHs will threshold out of their current league in a single event.

    Silver 12 BHs that passed the TL120 threshold = 95
    Gold 12 BHs that passed the TL120 threshold = 49

    I expect that most players will eventually end up in Master's league unless they deliberately avoid crossing the threshold. You can already see that the number of BHs in Silver who crossed the threshold [95] dropped significantly in Gold [49] since the top 95 Veteran BHs in Silver all moved up to Masters league. I would expect to see that trend continue until only "new" players are in the lower leagues.

    The only exception would be if a players actively trying to "game the system" by not completing TL120 by any of the heroes on that account just to keep the account in the lower league. Given the current stats in those lower leagues, I do not see that as a viable strategy for a player who wants to be competitive.

    You really only have one shot at finishing at the top of the Veteran's leaderboard because the trial thresholds for moving up were set so low. In the last Silver and Gold ANBs, all of the top 100 Veteran BH players passed the trial threshold for moving up to Masters league. In the most recent Bronze event, over half [68] of the top 100 players in the BH Contender's league will also move up to Master's League based on their ANB trial completion. I suppose that you could stay just under the threshold and still earn a lesser class of medal, but what would be the point of that?

    Mine showed it too, this event and the one before but very briefly. It was there then gone and I didn't see it again. ??‍♀️

    Sorry for the strange characters in my post. I should have used the forums and not my phones emojis.

    A small amendatory veto if permitted:
    would like to see Green medals {xxp/xg} added to that list.
    As a , so far, non money spending mobile only toon, I have been trying, rather unsuccesfully, for months and months to get even 1 of those green medals . At my skill level, current 'mixed LB' and not the best of devices, the only possibilty of remotely hoping for a greenie is Top100 in silver....that makes it seem pretty precious
    [Pink Floyd's “Green is the colour“ comes to kind]

    Not feeling in a position to enter the fairness/advantage argument, I do think medals may be a great motivational element for many players, so I wholeheartedly agree that to keep them special would certainly be a good decision.

    I think TL100.

    Yes I think the cut off is at tl 110, any higher and your next will be master league.

    At TL 132, you'll be moving up a league next ANB.

    The actual effects from medals aren’t so big as to unhinge the balance to be honest. Yes they help a fair bit when levelling up to clvl 70, so if you have a lot of medals you can save 5-10 minutes on an Anb, a bit more if you change classes half way through. But once you start to gear up, the stats you get from max level gear simply dwarf out the stat gains from medals.

    So the answer to your question is simple: you don’t need medals to compete at all, veteran or master. And even for free players, with a bit of practice the occasional top 100 finish is definately possible. I can’t choose for you the importance you should put into medals, just see them as they are: medals. Not as a boost to your strength, an extra piece of gear…

    Very accurate statement, I worked bloody hard to get Red Medals. Now I could just start a new account, stay in the low leagues until AnB Gold and hey presto, easy red medals.

    I don't object to top players getting rewarded (duh), but the medals kind of throw a wrench into the whole premise of ANB, namely, everyone starting out on equal footing.

    Actually, those who want to compete get better and earn, those who don't expect it to be given for just showing up.
