Renown & Badges


#1

Hey there,

I don’t know if this has been mentioned before as I haven’t really been in the forum for long, but there is major thing that I find that lacks is the ability to see who gave you renown and badges, and any specific reasons for them.

That’s mine, but I haven’t got a clue who I got any of them from, and it would be nice give them a thank you for it.

I assume it would be possible just to drop a notification in game (through email, too?) that you’ve been awarded something, who from, and an optional reason? I haven’t a clue. Let me know!

Thanks,
S2

On the top of my list is to improve this whole system and I think an email telling you that you have received a badge and who from will be good.

I wasn’t sure if people were going to like the badge system, but there are a few core players who seem to enjoy them so I would like to make a few more and make a bigger deal out of them.

Thanks for the feedback.


#3

I would really like hover text on profiles to show badge names and what they’re for.


#4

Yeah, I’d like to see what the badges were awarded for if I’m in talks making an alliance or going to war. It might be a nice indication of what to expect.


#5

I must say that as regular giver of bages and renown I think it would be nice for players to know who showed then respect regardless of if they were allies or enemies. Jay, pleased to hear this is on the list :slight_smile:


#6

Also, I would be open to new badge ideas.

And I know its tempting, but I will never include any badges that have negative connotations! Badges will only ever be rewards for good behaviour.

@Qwerty reckons that the Cheesy badge is a sign you should steer clear of a player, but I wear my cheese with pride!


#7

:stuck_out_tongue:, sure, who doesn’t like Cheese! :slight_smile:

I buy cheese to both, those I like and those I don’t like. For example, you are the one I like! :smiley:

Anyway, I want a badge for mad scientist and puppeteer :blush:
I’ve been called those and I really like them!

And there is one which team FIST invented, I think it was something like well oiled machine for those who have overwhelming E/I/S .


#8

Well Oiled Machine is like the Strategist one, I think.


#9

I like the mad scientist one. You could have a test tube or Bunsen burner.


#10

I believe I was the first to use the term “well oiled machine” and while yes, it was in reference to the Ender’s, it was really a reference to how well all three members of that team were consistently doing things such as upgrading their EIS (and distributing tech, etc.) … as I said in the game, someone should snapshot their Intel Charts because they were/are mathematically beautiful! :wink:


#11

I’ve just noticed I have a lion heart badge. Never realised before. Would be nice to know who gifted it to me.


#12

Was pretty much the exact point of why I made this thread!


#13

The badges I have, I only know because the person stated that they gave them to me.


#14

Players should now get an email when they receive a badge. Added last week.


#15

On a similar topic, could there a way to enable giving renown in/after an anonymous game and still preserve anonymity? Maybe keep anonymous renown from showing up for a while?


#16

@JayKyburz, should the two medals I got from you a few days ago notify as emails? If they were supposed to, they haven’t.


#17

Nar, emails don’t go out when I modify the database directly.


#18

Well, if somebody sends me a badge I will be more than pleased to share if the mail notification works :wink:


#19

I received a badge in the last 24h and received no email.


#20

I’ll go one step further and share the email with whoever wants it :wink:
