I just want to give a quick update on badges.
We have a badge system in the game now, coded and working.
That's the good news. In the CCT Beta, you'll be able to collect a few badges as well.
We do not have all of the types of badges set up at the moment -- I think we have six types as of today. And somewhere between 12 and 20 are obtainable during the Beta. In retrospect, I probably should have looked up an exact number before making this post.
But we are building in the direction discussed in this thread, and the current system works. And to be frank, we love to be able to report something like this. Another little piece clicking into place.
This means there will be something else that the community can give us feedback on. We're pretty sure you will all have ideas about badges.
