Default Heresy Online's Official Award Medals


Heresy Online is very proud to present it's new Award Medal System.

These awards will appear in your Avatar information bars and also in your viewable member profile should you be lucky enough to receive one.

The majority of these awards will be presented by Heresy's Staff when the occasion is correct; but to keep these as a special item they will be fairly uncommon and only given to those that excel in those areas.

Do not pester Staff for any awards!

Awards may be stripped from a member by the Staff to keep the integrity of an Award should anyone disgrace the honours bestowed upon them.

A PM will notify any of you that have been presented an Award, telling you in more detail why you have been awarded.

Without further ado, here are the current batch of medals, ready to award the worthy!

Yeah Syph has really come through for Heresy Online with these medals. Kudos Syph.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?
