I am tired of seeing silly things get added into the game that most people would not want. I am putting up this poll to see whether or not the community truly thinks that this feature aught to be reworked. Wargaming players do not want things added like this without getting player input first. This feature was one that was poorly planned out and it needs to be reworked so that the badges are in the results screen and are shrunk. A simple Ohanconner sunk you followed by a smaller sized badge would suffice in the battle results screen. If anyone seeks to detract from the thread I ask that you ignore them. I have seen threads get closed , because some would like to disrupt people talking about common sense features. Thank you

They should be completely optional so 95% of the population can select the no button.

Missed my final torp hits because of that idiotic emblem blocking the view. So yes, these things have to go. Another thing nobody wanted or needed, added by the developers when scads of urgent and easily fixed problems/requests are ignored.

In wot, if ur killed by anything other than arty, the camera locks to the shooter. I found it offensive the first dozen or so times but then it became conical. 

There needs to be an option how you want your defeat to be displayed. Right now, the badges are not only amusing they are pretty cool. It would also be good if there was a camera to lock on your killer after you'd been sunk like WoT.

I have played Wot and I know what you are saying. I have also paid attention to threads made in the last week since this patch dropped. I made this so that we could discuss as a wows community on ways to satisfy everyone's needs. So that if you want to see badges displayed you can, but in the results screen. I am not against keeping the current badge view as long as people who don't like it can opt out for a different view. thank you for your thoughts I appreciate them

I agree they should be optional and should have been proposed to us before this patch went live. Thanks for your thoughts

What about the stealth DD who laid torps 30 seconds ago? There would be a whole lot of non-zooming. Still not a bad idea though...

 

As for badges, they are fun. You can see who invests time into the game and actually knows what is going on, or you can see who just uses the default. The gold badges could be less based on average damage and more based on either individual games, or use a smaller sample to earn.

It's not that I mind seeing them, per se. 

It's a matter of scale. Especially on, say, a 27" monitor not quite 2' away from my face.

:cap_wander_2: :Smile_teethhappy:

ADDING: Agree that you should be able to turn them off if ya want.

I would rather "Collect Patches" of those I killed for future trading in the premium Shop.

I had this suggestion in another thread.  The only thing I really don't like about the patches is that they heavily block the view.  So, I suggest moving them more to the left where the normal text shows up.  It should be the badge and the name of the player showing up there.  The badge would also range in size due to the amount of damage that player did to you, from just getting the last shots is the size of the text, to a max 100% damage to you really popping out.

Yes and other. 

 

Something as simple as giving the player the ability to scale and move the badge display would work fine. Or just have it appear higher in the screen..  Options.

I think if they want to show it put it on a couple second delay, then slowly fade in. I don't mind seeing the badges, they're fine. But plenty of times an engagement isn't over the instant you die, and the badge prevents you from seeing the ending.

You need to remember that we are still the red headed step child. :Smile_teethhappy:

And even though the other servers have lost more numbers than we have, they still have a larger population than we do.

The whole blocking the screen is pretty silly though...

Never played world of tanks, but I thought the badges sorta thing was gonna be stuff visible on the ship, like those medal ribbons you see on the USS Iowa for instance.

They are fine just need to be moved out of the center of the screen and put on the side when you die. I know some snowflakes are upset over these things and even more upset that Emblems are earned from being good and not a potato, but it is about time WG rewarded players who get the job done in the game.

Either move them off to one side at half, or less, size and/or a option to disable seeing them.

Badge crap is crap and does absolutely NOTHING to improve the game. If WG insist on copying CoD nonsense tehy shoudl at the very least make badge crap optional (like cartoon stuff) so players can TURN IT OFF.

It comes up after you die. How did it screw up your torps if you were already dead?

He was watching his torps, and they were blocked from sight. You're a DD, torps are still hot after you're dead. You want to see them hit.

Is that screenshot from the battle you describe? I would think that a ship that was hit by torps after a four second run would basically fill the screen.

Never mind for some reason I was thinking that you had been sunk right after firing your torps. I guess the "final torps" planted that seed'

It would not bother me if they moved it to the side of the screen, or allowed peolpe to disable it.

Still, the badge lasts about 4-5 seconds, and covers about 5% of the screen. I don't get all the angst.
