Hey! I would love to bring an idea I have for Battalion to the forefront of the forums. As we know cosmetic skins will be present in the game. This is a feature I value and believe adds a lot to a game, however it is something that has been done before. I have a unique idea that will be both cosmetically beautiful & add a sense of uniqueness to the game. One thing I believe games are missing in the common era is a sense of community. Players take part in events, tournaments, and challenges but never seem to have anything to commemorate these very times effectively. I want to add in a cosmetic item that players will value, cherish, and give their guns a unique flavor. I present to you...
A "sticker" or "stamp" that can be added to and removed from a gun. These badges will be won or given away in the form of events (challenges, tournaments, holidays, etc.). These badges cannot be traded and will be account-bound. Each gun will have 4-5 slots in which players can choose from their inventory of badges to add to their guns. Anyone spectating a player, or whom picks up said players gun can then see the badges being shown-off on his/her gun.
While similar CS:GO's sticker system badges offer some distinct differences:
Badges are given to players through events, challenges, and tournaments. A player cannot simply buy a badge.
Badges are used to show a players participation, success, and history.
Badges may be interchanged at anytime to give the player control over which badges will be displayed.
Badges will be small, organized, and represent the player rather than only the gun.
All in all I feel that this idea may be slightly altered or change to fit Battalions needs. I have seen games in the past such as Habbo Hotel: an old social-based community where when you click on a player their "badges" are shown. Players became proud, envious, and determined to build up their arsenal of badges. It shows their history, participation, and gives them a sense of community and accomplishment. Examples from Habbo are below.
I will be attaching an example image from Habbo, and two examples of how it may look in Battalion. Thank you for your time. I would love to hear everyone's opinion below!
