Why is it Impulses dont match medals earned

OP McVeigh

This could have already been answered somewhere else but I couldnt find it.

Is there any reason why impule counts like "FlagCapturedImpulse" dont match the "Flag Capture" medal count?

EDIT: It also seems impulses are the more "corect" value also most of the time.
Hey McVeigh,

This isn't something I'm aware of offhand. Do you have some concrete examples (Match IDs) that we could look at? I'm not sure how much time I'll be able to spend on this so having a starting point would really help.

Thanks

Here is one example

MatchId: 49203545-bd2e-45ee-9df3-0f84e122a682
FlagCapturedImpulse: 2944278681
Flag Capture Medal: 3886151616

You can see there is 4 Capture Impulses but only 3 Capture Medals.

I checked my local database of games and there is 2280 instances of this occuring.

Wait, I think it just dawned on me, maybe the missing flag medals were stealth captures as I was only looking at the normal flag capture medal.
That's a great theory! I haven't had a chance to investigate yet, but let us know if you have any additional updates!
