Gold Req Pack completion?

So, funny thing. Had enough req points for a gold pack, and it kicked back 2 3000 req point cards and no permanent unlocks. Used the points for another pack and the same thing. I still have tons of rare emblems to unlock. Are that many emblems tied into commendations, or was this a glitch in the req system? Comments?

The majority of the rare emblems are commendations and rank up. I had the same question when I was at your stage.

Thanks. Thought I was going crazy there for a while!
