#1 Top Dog Badge...
« on: January 04, 2013, 03:53:33 PM »
...is not applicable in this Tourney!!!

Earlier today I had the euphoria of making #1 after my hit on Commander Alldow (TSW).  This has now been turned sour by the fact I do not get the Top Dog achievement.  I raised a ticket to ask why and this is Matt reply...

Matt Hirschfelt, Jan 04 09:03 (EST):
We do not award rank relevant badges if there are less than 1000 players currently in the game.

My question is why is there a differentiation being made?  The time I have invested in this game has been enormous but being #1 is nice but not to get the top dog badge award to prove I held that spot just sucks.  It should make no difference how many are playing as those that are playing are all seeking to do as well as they can.  Why penalise players in this universe just because it hasn't been the interest in it BFG expected.

And BFG wonder why people are walking away.  Get a grip guys!

We have always required a minimum of 1000 players in the Universe before we award any rank relevant badges. Keep in mind that achievement points are not added to your score and will not impact the badges awarded at the end of the season for final tournament rankings.

That is so not the point.  Time to walk away.  I have 3 open tickets that have not been worked on and the game has been full of bugs.  I kept going to get #1 if I could despite BFG poor coding.  Now that I get there I might as well not bothered.  No achievement, no visible acknowledgement that I made it on my profile.  If CZ or any of the others players get a good hit and take over, there is no way of showing I once held #1.

Rant over and goodbye

The devs will be deploying soon to lower the threshold number to 500. The badges will be awarded during the next leaderboard update following the deploy.

But it not the only half cocked badge in the game, "ship master" and "Completionist" are also dead badges but at least I can go for the moon badges - oh no we can't get moons.

As I will never get to #1 and the badge's are impossible to get then the only reason to stick around is to kill grace's sat's  ;D

You know, the funny thing is pretty soon a requirement of 1000 members would be a bit much for some of the older universes... X1 has 1400 members with more than 5 points (The initial lvl) and Uni-2 has 1705... I think that 500 requirement's a much better Idea Matt.

You can't currently earn these in the tournament universe, as some of the components do not exist in the tournament universe.

Appears I have to do the jumping through hoops trick to keep them amused - if I tried this on with our customers we would not have any - Jason just read the link I sent you.

Is it all really worth it?

If you know who this user is in game I can check and verify this. However it is also possible that he is looking at a universe other than the tournament universe.
