Do you ever get promoted or gain the non-Iron Cross Medals/Knights Cross medals?

You do get promoted. I just became a Lieutenant Commander.

And there is a few other medals aside from the Iron/Knights Cross medals.

Being a Kapit√¬§nleutnant myself, fully decorated with Eisernem Kreuz 1. and 2. Klasse, Ritterkreuz mit goldenem Eichenlaub, Schwertern und Brillanten, U-Boot Kriegsabzeichen und U- Boot Frontspange, I can let you rest assured that you'll get promoted and fully decorated http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

The wierd part is I've completed 11 patrols, 217k tons sunk, I have the IC2, IC1, Knights Cross with all the goodies (including Gold Oak Leaves), but no war badge or anything from the first row.

I'm also still a Lt Jr.

Well, I had to sink almost 700k tons and finish 22 patrols to get promoted.

IIRC the "Kaleu" grade is unlocked after earning more than 50.000pts of renown.

Is that 50000 total, or saved up?

I haven't gotten any of the top 3 awards on the screen... I have all the Iron Cross and Knights Cross awards... and still a Jr LT.

Wonder what the thresholds are?

I think it's based on Available renown, so if you spend some, you will actually go down in rank if you were promoted.

Am I the only person who thinks that's strange? When I made LT in the Navy, they didn't think about making me a JG again if I requested a transfer or got some equipment for my ship. That's just plain wierd.

Zinger98 and Co...

I haven't gotten the top three medals in the case either; I made a post asking about it and nobody knew why. Some people can get all the medals, and some can't; the version they're operating under (patched/unpatched) doesn't seem to matter.

I've never gotten the top three medals, despite promotions and maxing out my bottom three medals (oak leaves, diamonds, swords, and the kitchen sink).

Sorry bud, you's and me's gotta play with config files to get our medals http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

I've been on 9 missions and I am disappointed because it takes forever to get to the patrol area even with time comp. Are there any career missions that put you in the action sooner? I am also considering just exiting and saving as soon as I get to the patrol area to try to build up renown faster. Any thoughts on this idea?

Maybe the devs are simulating you using improper/nauty procedures when obtaining new equipment and when the Gestapo finds out they notify the Kriegsmarine and get you demoted. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
