The 3 Phases of Free Badge Removal Events

Once upon a time I was totally stoked to see a free badge removal event. "HUZZzzZAH!!!!". That's the first phase.

Later on with more survivors it became "SIGH..., time to knuckle down and get this chore done". That's the second phase.

Now with all heroes unlocked, a half dozen+ survivors and a full inventory of badges, it's "F*** off, this S*** again already?". Total apathy. That's the 3rd & final phase.

The problem with being in the third phase is that it is a massive chore to undo badges, slooooowly scroll through and evaluate where you are at, then load them all back up again. It just doesn't work for me anymore.

Sadly, it's true, I have Badge Fatigue.

An easy cure would be to:

1) Have a "Remove All" button. This can be individual toon, global or even better, both options.

2) Add at least two to three sortable fields - in the character badge placement screen. Having to go to the Craftsman to see sorts is BS when you are at or near full inventory.

I would MUCH rather have this game issue fixed as a higher priority than adding new content as this constantly sows my discontent.

I know there's a symphony of other posts about this subject. I just wanted to throw my little woodwind in the mix in the hopes of a conductor paying attention.

    Absolutely agree. The apathy is real.I didn't even bother trying to swap badges the last time it came around and skipped it the entire weekend saying it wasn't worth the stress of scrolling up and down and making notes of badge positions and shape on my spreadsheet and a notebook. It really needs a massive overhaul especially since badges are so critical in advancing

    Yeah there is no chance in hell that I'm going through that again. I remember I had a headache that lasted at least a day after the event finished. My advice would be to suck it up, create a spreadsheet and put a fair amount of effort in to do a good job of it.

    Once it's done, if you do it well you never really have to do it again :lol:

    Sometimes I think they're doing this on purpose. They could make life so much easier for us. Even a "badge autofill" would be possible. Just say which kind of badges you want (3x damage + 3x critical for example) and it automatically fills in the strongest possible option. I also don't get why we have different kind of components if it doesn't matter at all. Pure randomness which badge we'll receive. Organising badges is simply a pain because the system is so outdated. Also, they need to get rid of regular numbers badges. They just exist to annoy us.

    I've never taken advantage of badge removal. Really can't be arsed.
    Currently guild-less.

    I'm also delighted that following the craftsman upgrade I can no longer rely on Epic badges being the best :neutral:

    Just crafted several Rare that are far better than my existing Epics, and no way to easily sort them.

    This is so true. I didn't switch a single badge last event. Making a huge spreadsheet to keep track of your badges is not how it should be.

    I mostly just swapped badges on Maggie to buff her up. I rarely use her, but figured she could use some buffing for the GW battles that weekend.

    I guess it proves there was no long term strategy to organize and ease the players ability to sort and optimize their badges. Either spend a ton of time per event, or spend a ton of time logging and cataloging to put onto a spreadsheet. Either way, NG gets your time...On 2nd thought, the strategy works brilliantly for them

    Make it happen. Remove all and a sort function. It takes me about an hour to remove and re-equip everything

    Can you provide some detail on how to make one of these spreadsheets? I am very interested in making my own.

    I took screenshots and printed pictures because I was tired of not being able to sort and look at the items in totality. Was also sick and tired of blocked images

    I gots me a plan. Aaaaannnnnnnd, I'm pretty sure most of ya will like it. Problem is; how do I find time aside from my own life that won't conflict with my game time. (I mean, what's the point if your time in the game is only spent organizing, cataloging, and equipping badges?

    Fyi, I once spent a stoned (legal in my state) 3 hours just rearranging my base. Snapped out of it like "what the $üć* did I just spend my life on?"

    Anywho, spreadsheet with functions to determine final outcome. Plug in survivors' stats and desired badges BEFORE equipping them.
    I'm such a dweeb, this actually sounds fun and challenging. Wait til my wife finds out...

    This was the first badge swap weekend that i did absolutely nothing to my badges. I normally take them all off and rebadge my best people then the remainder get badges as I use them in the distance. This time I just couldn’t face it and I enjoyed that weekend so much more than usual. Badge swap shouldn’t be a weekend event unless it is at the same time as another event. If you want to run it on it’s own put it in the Monday-tues event rotation.

    Oh god yes. I love spreadsheets but I seriously can't be arsed with one for badges.

    Remove all and two badge selection filters (shape and badge type) would do the trick.

    Hello everyone.

    I estimate the process of assigning badges, from start to finish, to take around four to five hours.

    This is my idea of fun.

    Good day.

    Please send in a job application to NG :)

    Each badge should be labelled (A, B, C, D, E). This way when equipping badges we would not have to waste time double checking at the craftsman if the badges match the given set. This would save a lot of time

    @Adamski316 they probs expect us to remember which shape correlates to which letter. I agree with your idea. Better yet, come out with a system that suggests the badges from the matching set and / or stat.

    Me, I've been hanging out for the rebadging because of a dumbarsed socialist idea I had last time.

    I figured if you assigned all the badge classes to a specific survivor classes (i.e. warriors got the the ones that looked like clovers) it would be easy to organise them. The scouts ended up with all the dreggs because of the old "bag of hotdogs and bag of buns" syndrome.

    The results worked for admin but ended up with mediocre survivor improvements.

    Also....

    Can we please get some kind of permanent fix/exchange for 1-2 star comps and frags please!

    Or at the very least lift the cap on the amount of completed badges we are able to hold in our inventory?

    I would gladly swap all of these for cans of gas. @Fluxxx
