Thread: Elite Badge

  1. #1

    Elite Badge

    Really dumb qustion I'm sure ..... but I have a 29 year old badge that means the world to me .. http://wouter.bbcmicro.net/pictures/...elite_pins.jpg (the one on the left) .... any plans to continue this ? (a shiny new badge for shiny new Eliteangerous players that make it to Elite)

    n.b. not a show-stopper; already pledging £300 and not planning on pulling it regardless of the respose ... just curious.

    p.s. if anyone want's to buy my badge ... a £300,000 pledge to E kickstarter will sort the deal, anything less ... sorry, it's worth more to me ;-)

    Hi Duncan
    Welcome to the Frontier Forum and that is a nice badge you have there. Unfortunately it's a bit out of my price range

    I've been posting to the KS comment thread and some thread here, hoping that those badges would become a pledge upgrade. Of course, if Frontier wants to reserve them for gamers who actually reach Elite status, I'd respect that choice happily - just as long as they exist!

    I would love to get my hands on one of those.
    Wow.

    I've only just heard about these badges. At the time I was playing Elite, they had been discontinued and it took a couple of years for me to attain Elite status, so by that time it was all over. Add in the fact I'm in Australia and I had no chance of ever getting one.

    *Sad Panda*

    So I'd love it if Frontier Dev made them available again to players, pending special conditions (like, well, being Elite status first. maybe some others too).

    Those are simply beautifull!

    I too was a little young to get them first time round, and spent years trying to acquire one before I finally gave up.

    Would love to see a recurrence of these badges too.

    Damn they look amazing! Never heard of them, and never became ELITE anyway. I managed Deadly for Elite II and maybe ELITE (I can't remember)

    When I learned about Elite Dangerous on KS I decided that I couldn't pledge until I found my Elite Badge (original BBC Micro).

    It took over 4 weeks of searching before finding it. I was beginning to think I'd lost it for good and therefore didn't deserve to be involved with ED.

    I wonder how many are still out there in the wild.
