per Synapse

Thats the majority of the MA badge being pulled.
I'm torn.  I like that they're doing something about the badges, but I'm sad to see them go.  A lot of the the badge titles are nice little costume pieces, if anything.

The statement RE: count badges also concerns me, as I'm not sure what else they would be able to do.  I'm willing to wait this one out, though.

Not to mention 'fixing' this stuff here on CiT ;)  ;workworkwork

Finally. A lot of the count badges have always been retardedly high to the point of farming being the only legitimate way of obtaining them.

They created this problem on their own, and I'd like to believe they're not stupid or naive enough to not realize that adding badges in where you have to heal for 1 billion points or whatever is going to create the perceived need to farm for them.

I agree with that.  I'm really not a fan of badges like Immortal that aren't even realistically farmable.

I didn't really consider these to be in that category though.  I've just been running AE content and rating people's arcs since I14 went live and I'm only just a couple hundred of custom spawns away from Terminator.

Ah well.  Such is life.  I'm sure my Warshade will appreciate the renewed interest in pushing him to 45.  :)

A little sad to see them all go (over 80 of them).. and wonder on a few of these badges that have not been mentioned at all.
Around 10 of them (or abit less).
Relieved that the hardest ones are G O N E. Specially many of the test ones... (virtual killing i.ex).
To be honest I was shocked and perhaps a bit furious when I first saw it, but became calm quickly as the shock went away. We knew some would go, but that many...? ;)

Looking forward to see that new system they must be thinking of and a stop to all that powerlevelling that goes on in Atlas park.
Hopefully the MA will be used to what it originally was intended for; stories.

I PM'd Synapse with the list of missing badges last night, and he got back with be today.  Architect X and Architect XXV are the only ones still staying in.

Since he's looking: how about asking him if he's gonna change 'Customiser' to an account-wide badge? Would keep the number of arc IDs down if we only needed to publish one arc to get it.

That one is a bit misleading. All you need to do is Republish on each character to get the badge. As long as the arc you are republishing has a custom boss, the character will get the badge.

Well with this discussion I'm going to be removing the said removed badges from the low hanging fruit report on CIT. Its kinda pointless they are there now since its said there going to be removed. Not much we can do to change that fact that they are being removed but really now ask "What type of badges will replace whats been removed"

I agree with SP tho that the top tier count/cumulative badges were never the best badges they came out with. Badges like MoSTF (which i still haven't acquired) is a true badge of accomplishment. Its dam hard to get for some players. Lets just hope that i15 is something we can look forward to and not sulk over.
