Had a quick search for a definitive answer on this but no luck. On 2nd patrol, Dec '39, got very lucky, 6 warships and 8 merchants, I Illustrious and 1 Revenge and 4 DD for 68663 tons and merchants for 67378 tons. less than 4000 renown awarded and only 2 front clasps, not even a single knights cross, I think with vanilla sh3 I would have had more meadals to give out than crew, so in GWX what are the criteria for getting my crew awards, e.g. do I have to consistently hit this score?
P.S. A most enjoyable return to SH3 GWX after a fresh install on my new PC after my last one quite literally blew up through dedication to gaming http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Well I have only just completed my second patrol in GWX and as so I am only on the Iron Cross 1st Class.

Working on the logic... Assuming you get every patrol as both high remown and high tonnage, it will take you... 6-8 patrols to get the highest possible award as you must be awarded the previous medal on the previous patrol to qualify. My first 2 patrols were 50K and 45K and I got the Iron Cross 2nd Class on my first patrol and Iron Cross 1st Class on my second..... or was that the other way around!! lol

On well, I am after the ??Oak leaves?? On this patrol! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Catch me in another 5 to ask again! lol.

Same goes for my crew. They should be getting their first Iron Crosses in Gold at the end of this patrol as I already have a few with 1st & 2nd Class Iron Crosses! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Thanks, I follow the logic, Vanilla SH3 just dished out medals, so just keep going and meadals will come, excellent. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif

Second patrol, GWX, cant remember the higher ranking medals as it was a while back but every member of the crew got the Uboat clasp in one go. Never seen that many in one hit before. I'd popped into Scapa on the way out, 3 DD's, 1 troopship and a revenge class plus whatever tonnage on the rest of the patrol got me a real handful of medals to dish out.
