I am on a server, where you don't get medals from any npc. Well I haven't anyway. There is something in the defense side of the Intel hero. You get the 50% heal rate at certain levels. Once this was seen as a mech hero, but now the 'big' players see it as a defense hero.

Legend has it a city with an intel hero of 850 and att of 220 is fairly formidable, and if you are online, it's very easy to ensure that is the highest attack hero in your city.
