The medal doesn't give the players incentive to fight harder in their country's resistance wars, it give incentive to fight calmly with a fixed number of kills in a 'safe' training resistance war, as Austria - Slovenia right now. So the real occupations will be harder to break - the conqueror will have more money for CO.
Not quite. There are 2 types of fighters: fanatics and opportunists.
The fanatics will fight usually for their country, for their DOs, for their allies to the best of their ability. This type will be active on both sides of the RWs.
Opportunists are those who try to minimize de cost of fighting either by searching for active COs all the time, or going for MMedal if they have low to medium str or Patriot Medal if they are high strength etc.
The new system won't change how fanatics play the game, but they will reward more the fanatics who fight for the resistance side. On the other hand opportunists won't go barging randomly for BH, Mercenary M or god knows what in a random RWs, they will monitor safe rws with already high scores for the resistance, give they 25-75 fights and leave, helping anyway the rw side.
So it will just remove randomness from current battles. At least this is how i see it.
