Medals are gained from attacking other players' bases. The player with the highest number of medals in a given planet owns that planet. Similarly, the player with the highest number of medals in a sector owns that sector. Medal counts are how players are individually ranked, and the aggregate total of all alliance members' medals contributes to the ranking of alliances.
They hold no logistical value. As such, owning a planet yields no benefit except promote you as a target.
1 Star = 20% of estimated medal amount.
2 Star = 50% of estimated medal amount.
3 Star = 100% of estimated medal amount.
All final result are rounded down to the digit (EG: 5.6 = 5)
Medals determine the player leaderboard, with players with the highest number of medals displayed at the top. The total number of medals in an alliance determines its place on the alliance leaderboard which spans across all sectors in the game.
While medals generally not an accurate measure a player or an alliance's strength, it is said in general that players with more medals tend to be more aggressive and experienced in PVP combat. Engage such players wisely.
Medals is often common subject to scrutiny, some alliances use low level players to store medals. Other players protect their medals with the defense matrix or numerous guard fleets.
Medals do not have any Advantage for the player holding them. Although many players brag about how many they have. But Kixeye never put a real value to it

Player A has 100 medals, fights player B with 150 medals, and gets 2 stars
- Medal difference shows player B with 150 medals - 100 medals = 50 medals more than player A
- Refer to the table and find that a 50-medal difference gives player A 25 potential medals
- Since player A only gets 2 stars, 25 medals x 50% = 12.5 medals, which is rounded down to 12
- Player A only gets 12 medals, sad story.
