After reading this I claimed my Master Champion badge and I received my level upgrade but there is no new badge in my profile thanks for lowering the requirement by the way smile

Me ditto. I have a picture of the badge in my messages, a new level, and... no badge. smile

You probably realise that the badge needs re-doing by the way, maybe it should be renamed "7 Champs" or something like that?

I'm glad you lowered the requirement as well. 150 seems like a level that VERY few, if any, will ever attain.
I too have received notification of the badge, and extra level, but no badge appears. But it shows as 150 in the announcement. Probably still being altered at the tailors.
Thanks again.

Same for me. Also FYI, it has a graphic of a mega badge, says you go up one level, but lower in the writeup it says "mini-badge awarded."

I suspect patience will be a vurtue here.

Heh... please change the name then. It was so nice with all the 150s including "Master".

My suggestion would be "Grand Champion", using "Grand" as the 125 designator.


See my PM on the titles - I have an idea with those smile

Also a note to anyone SOBbing - you can safely discard those 3 letters and pick up new ones. And no, they won't remain valid for anything.

Scoring monthly badges in 7 games is impressive enough -- this award doesn't need the extra challenge of 150. I think 125 is a lot more reasonable.


Cool, timed it right to be the first one. Though you could have left the level at, say, 145. ;-)

Darn. I was looking forward to earning that many champ badges, then being one of the first to cross 150 to earn it. But now that's it's at 125, I can't get it yet, as I only have 3 champs divisions. Haha. Oh well, gives me something more to shoot for. Haha.

Several issues.

1) got the email indicating I'd won the badge (OK)
2) points until next level indication at top right shows correct "next" level (OK)
but...
3) challenge page shows "Complete! Challenge finished and mini-badge awarded!" but it appears it's supposed to NOT be a "mini"
4) Check mark missing in menu on left side
5) No badge on profile
6) No credit to anyone on the badge page: http://www.funtrivia.com/badge_winners.cfm?bid=412

edit:
7) badge icon in email shows "150"

Why isn't Who Am I? credited towards the Master Champion badge and Who's The Expert is? Shouldn't it be the other way around when all you have to in Expert is win one little topic?

Apologies if I'm being dense, but I have a question about the Master Champion challenge. It shows as a non-gold badge, but since Who Am I? isn't being counted I only see 6 other non-gold games with a champions division. What am I missing? confused

Partially fixed, but it may have awarded a couple of badges based on incorrect reqs.

Will go through it all in a couple of hrs, gotta run right now.

Looks like it is (mostly) cleared up. (Had to do a hard refresh to load the new graphic)

Thanks!

I have credit for Obscure, but not for Gold Member? I have fully completed them both.

The problem is that the badge is counting stuff that shouldn't be. In fact, I'm confused myself as to what it should be counting.

It should be including the games with Champion Divisions.

Those are:

Mixed Game
Who's Smartest
Easy Game
Word Wizard
Fill Me In
Who am I

"Obscurity" and "Who's the Expert" are not champion divisions and do not count.

Therefore this badge should only count the 6 above.... correct?

I think that's right.

Expert has a Champion's Division but that doesn't count because it's done by category.
GM Madness and Obscurity both have Monthly badges but no Champions Division.

Which leaves the ones you've listed.

Technically, you could say Obscure doesn't have a Champs division. It's all thrown together, and there isn't a separation between winners and non-winners of the Obscure monthly badge. It does have an ELO page, via the link on the game page. WAI has a Champs division, but it's a daily, not an hourly. Expert has a Champs division. Much of this has to do with what is the definition of a Champs division. GMM doesn't have a Champ division, but it has a monthly badge. An idea might be to go by how many mothly badges somebody has. There are 9 I believe. WTS, Mixed, Speed Demon, (I hate the P of C name) GMM, Obscure, WW, WAI, Melt, and of course my fave--FMI. Then again, that could be different badge or badgelet.

"There is a Champs division in Obscure"

No -- every player gets an ELO in obscure. Clearly it has nothing to do with champions.

Ditto Expert, where all you need is a single victory to get an ELO. Completely different animal than the "Big 6".

It does however leave Who Am I? which I had forgotten earlier. This one has been a bit anomalous since it went from hourly to daily... it has sets for champions but no ELO.

( And yes, I'm unfortunately going to have to roll back those badges awarded in that hour window that it was open... it was awarding them based on bad data... )

I was editing my original response while you replied Terry. I realized there wasn't a champs division in Obscure, just an ELO because there was no separate division for monthly badge winners. If you could, please re-read. Thanks.

Are you awarding them now only to people who have all six? Or five out of six? I have all of them so it makes no difference to me... phew!

Maybe for simplicity sake we drop the "champion" stuff entirely and change it to consider monthly badges.

To allow non GMs, we exclude the gold GM games and make it:

Monthly Winner: Fill Me In
Monthly Winner: Mind Melt
Monthly Winner: Word Wizard
Monthly Winner: Who Am I?
Monthly Winner: Hard Game
Monthly Winner: Mixed Game
Monthly Winner: Easy Game

So we're back to 7 badges.

I like that a lot better, it's much cleaner.

Edit to add:

And we'd make the requirement to be 6 of those 7, to give people the chance to ignore one game they particularly hate.

On that basis I think that only one person who got the Master Champion's badge earlier would be affected, all the others have enough monthlies to count. Not sure how you feel about leaving badges with people who got them by mistake but no fault of their own... but it is Christmas. smile
