So, I have been seeing alot of talk about honours and how much they cost etc recently, so I got to thinking.
Is there anyone else out there that uses most of their time chasing Honours and Medals?
If so, how many have you got?
Which is your favourite?
Which did you have the most fun obtaining?
Which award, if any, would be a dream to obtain?
Are you working hard towards any now?
You have a total of 278 awards
I dont think I have a favourite honour, I usually display my most recent achievement.
I enjoyed my time chasing the Seeker honour - after looking at what awards I had that were pretty close, I worked on multiple awards at a time. Along with racing a friend of mine to see who obtained it first! (I won)
I recently tried to get my 500 Killstreak award (using defends alone) I managed to get to 464 paying about 500k per hit, before being mugged for $1 (cost me alot to fail)
Im not currently working towards any awards, my time is devoted to getting to 50k crimes so that I can reach Rank 25
Here are the Honors and Medals that you've achieved in Torn. To view all of your awards, click 'Honors' or 'Medals'. You have a total of 170 awards and 3 merits available! You gain one merit every time you achieve an honor or medal.
I love trying to get awards and currently working towards several, my favorite are ones with $$$ on as I'm a mugger, so currently i use find a penny pick it up and i also like the one for winning the lottery but I've yet to be lucky enough lol
Several ones I've always wanted are kill streak 3, managed to get but was bloody hard and scary when you hit 400+ just not wanted to get hit randomly lol
Spaced out if always wanted but doubt I'll ever achieve
and i quite want to get the win 250 races one done and under my belt but it takes too much effort for me -.-
Awards/honors give you a goal to set yourself, goals keep you interested in the game so they're awesome to have
i spend most of my time going for merits. right now i'm working on getting the one for 100 hunting skill and then i'm working on the civil offence one for 5000 selling copied media crimes when i fly back to torn to reinvest my money/run organized crimes.
i think i'm the most proud of my spaced out and second chance honors. that being said, i AM extremely proud of getting both merits for racing without any help from anyway. same thing with 500 kill streak. i would have been pissed if someone ruined it for me. i begged my faction leader to avoid war at all costs. considered leaving briefly, but then that would have put me behind on my faction loyalty merits. haha
i probably enjoyed the racing ones the most though. not sure why, as they're pretty dull, but i guess i kind of enjoyed building the best possible car.
i always switch my honor every time i unlock a new one, just to show it off.
as i said, i'm always working toward merits, so i dream of having them all, but i'm really excited to get 10k busts, 100 hunting skill, level 100, dropping a dirty bomb, and owning 100 personal perks.
i'm working hard to save money right now though, so that's kind of holding me back. otherwise i'd be paying for sluts, building a dirty bomb, getting every enhancer for a perk, and i'd own a yatch. haha
As a young player, it's pretty much my main focus. At the very bottom of my profile page, I have a record of everything almost everything I'm working towards at that moment. The focus will shift when circumstances change (I'm not attacking right now, but am close to three merits). I'm a young player so I feel as if I have a lot of catching up to do.
Currently I believe I have 82. My racing car has broken through the barrier where it feels like it's impossible to win and currently have 13 wins. It'll probably take months to get to 250 through official races, but if I (or anyone) want(s) to speed it up, find a racing partner and race 1 lap races, with your best car vs their crappy car. I'm having fun building my baby up so the official races are good enough for me for now. If it takes too long and I'm one merit away from another Awareness point, I'll probably focus on that since it can be finished in a few days.
The most expensive merit I have is getting the 50 Dog Tags from the March competition, but I'd rather not rehash that subject again. In the beginning, and one of the reasons why I decided to participate was that I was already in the process of collecting the 50 Finishing Hits merits, so I was already mugging dead characters for money and merits. In the beginning of the competition it was fine, but once I got put on 15 black lists, I had to go hide overseas, only popping out in order to take care of business. Lost about two weeks in order to get that one.
Everything else is more or less standard stuff. I don't really consider any of my merits or honors to be particularly special or memorable. Well, buying and selling flamethrowers was fun because of just how many merits I collected in a very short span of time. In about three weeks i'll be buying my very own Private Island with enough money for a bunch of upgrades, so getting the Airstrip merit will be satisfactory do to the time that went into getting it and not having to find good terms for a lease any longer.
I'm looking forward to the Endurance contest as that seems like a fun way to collect some merits.
Here are the Honors and Medals that you've achieved in Torn. To view all of your awards, click 'Honors' or 'Medals'. You have a total of 291 awards and 2 merits available! You gain one merit every time you achieve an honor or medal.
My favorite is the seeker honor as I like the look of it and I really focused on picking up 60 awards in a short period of time to earn it.
I enjoyed earning the one for 250 dog tags, just a shame it looks pants!
I want the awards for hunting skill and revival but they will be far down the list in the order I will go for them. I am 16 crimes away from another award then 2,500 more jackets for 50k crimes. Also pushing towards 3k attack merit and respect merits. Also just 4 more flights for Dubai travelling merit.
Choosing a single favourite award is tough, I always prefer the medals over honour bars though.
My favourites are the ones that I was the very first person to discover or at least acquire through legit means, attention seeker (25k meds used, 50k when I got it) was one of these, as was king pin and supplier (8k and 10k drug crimes respectively). Lee Harvey Oswald (10k crits) is another favourite of mine, was the second person to get this though, just beaten to it by SuperMikk. The 25k personal respect earned too is quite nice, certainly not the only one with it but it took a reasonable amount of effort to acquire and was definitely the one that was most fun getting.
Right now I'm working on getting all the 5k crime honour bars, currently doing assassinations, debating whether or not to push to 10k to get all the medals too like I did with drug crimes, although unlike with drug crimes I wouldn't be the first so it doesn't quite hold the same thrill for me.
I have just over 200 awards at the moment. I still have ones such as taking all the drugs which would take this amount up by a few.
I think the award that I enjoyed getting the most was the pink camo for 5k attacks won. I have this honor and wear it with pride. I am also proud of getting the 1k runaways medal as I think it might still be quite rare. I really wish it told you how many people have each award and honor as it would be interesting to know how many people have each award. I am not aiming for any awards at the moment apart from 50k crimes for the next rank trigger. However I started doing computer crimes so I will probably have to go back to 2 nerve crimes to get the 50k crimes rank trigger.
