    Cheecky beggar - my eyes are just as sharp, as are my reflexes; fly through my sights and see if I don't etch my name on your hullplates for that slight you blaggard!

    We don't have to win it back... we already are Elite and always will be, in our old age we might just 'choose' not to flaunt it in Elite Dangerous

    I too think this should be done. I know it will add to production costs but it will be soooo worth it.

    If this is brought up in the DDF I will vote FOR

    Don't bet on it, once you fire up the thrusters, your blood will rush and your nerves will sing.

    Elite was an experience often emulated but never matched. I've played almost every space sim since elite and even though some have been more elaborate, Elite was always the one by which they were judged. If David has anything to do with it (and by Deus he will), Dangerous will be just as special.

    Lol speak for yourself; I'll be right in there, with echo's of Maverick in my ears "no, you can be MY wingman"

    I also entered the competition that Buell won, so mine might be from that..the specifics are a little hazy, but that might account for why mine and his are the same but different from the others.

    Maybe David B might be able to shed some light on this?

    I was just trying to lull you into a false sense of security... I am Elite and I will be making sure that Elite Dangerous knows it!!!

    From what I gather the gold Elite badges where issued by Firebird and the silver ones by Acornsoft reflecting the colour of the Elite insignia on the game packaging.

    Ha! I was thinking mostly of myself, I am even older than DB...

    @Andy Kappa, @TheDarkKnight

    How is the great badge search going?

    Don't give up, seven would be great; don't want to be one of the Final Five!

    WOW!

    Like a Blue Peter badge but more WOW!

    and more Awesomeniesss

    *edit*

    Infact and ED badge would be awesome.

    every KS pledger of double figres gets brass coloured
    every KS pledger of triple figures gets silver
    every KS pledger of four figures gets GOLD
    every KS pledger of 3k + gets Platinum

    even if they're just plated

    When it comes to mercandising I'm not a great fan.. fluffy toys etc.. However, an Elite badge can't be scoffed at - I want mine in 24 carrot sold gold please.

    Would you like any of that solid? LOL

    I'd go for platinum or Titanium for the metal, but for the 123 look of it gold. I just prefer those silvery/grey colours of precious metals. And the weight of platinum is reasurring. "The One Ring" was probably made of that stuff. I know my wedding ring weighed loads in comparison to gold, even much bigger gold rings.

    Damn, never knew about these badges when I reached Elite on the Spectrum version. Even got the damn cloaking ASP ship...

    Oh well, I was young and forgetful. Unlike now....what was I talking about again?.....

    This is simply awesome!??!

    How did they verify / find out you had become Elite?

    Was this some contest held in a dusty old warehouse with thousands of Elite gamers crammed in until someone cracked it?! =)

    VERY COOL!
