I would just like to know how you guys decide what medal to give to what crew members. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif
Do you guys just give the medals to whom ever you feel like or do you have your own way of deciding what medal to give to who.I have medals to give out, but I am not sure who I want to give it to,without looking like I am friends with one crew member more then the others http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Generally it seems like the awarding goes to the men you want to stop shifting around for getting their rest first....
ie. as for me I have a full sett of officers and they all get tired pretty fast in the start but I only have the 2 "recharge spots" in the bunkrooms so I got them to recieve medals first so I wouldn't have an exhausted officer when I needed him the most.....also it would look odd to have an ordinary seaman with medals while my officers were without....
and then I just went on giving out to the ones I wanted to have on station the longest like the sonar radar guy and the watch crew....the gold star gives pretty mych unlimited energy...

What's a "recharge spot"????

I can put about 20 men in the bow or stern quarters to rest. Is there a 'special' spot in there where they 'recharge' faster?

He means he has only 2 bunks for officers.

Recharge spots = bunks.

Indeed, the offiers are the first to recieve the German Cross. That way I can keep the Helm and Engines at top efficiency all the while.

Before that it is a run to get there for the officers. Then the petties.

I just go from the top down. Officers get first crack at awards unless a crew member has gone above and beyond the call of duty. My flak gunner saved my butt on my last patrol so I had to give a shiny medal for it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

I use to give german golden cross to:

1. Watch officer
2. An officer in control room
3. Petty Officer mechanic
4. another officer
and so on. It depends on your style of playing.
