I would like to suggest that medals equipped on the hero be blocked and not made available for upgrading the elite rank of troops.
The other day, a friend complained to me that the medals equipped on his hero had disappeared and he thought it was some kind of error in the game.
Talking more, he explained to me that he had raised the elite rank of several troops with the medals he had and concluded with that, that without knowing he had used the medals equipped on the hero in these upgrades.
If the medals equipped on the hero were blocked for this purpose, this type of problem for the player would no longer happen.
