The Captains Council is proud to introduce a whole new reward system for our community: Badges!
Badges are similar to our Community Awards in that they are awarded for out-of-character (OOC) participation and achievement. However, while Community Awards are bestowed on a yearly basis in December to recognize long-term achievement and outstanding performance among a peer-group, badges are reserved for incremental achievements or singular contest wins.
Players can receive more than one badge at a time, and can also receive a badge multiple times through enhancements – a marker on the wiki that denotes repeated achievement. Similar to the star system used on the service ribbons, a gold tip represents each repeated citation, and a silver tip represents five additional citations (and therefore five gold tips).
We’ve launched with 18 badges, however more will be announced over the coming weeks.
