    @sbf That might actually be what it is. So misleading.

    Well Done for providing that video.
    This is the visual glitch I'm talking about.
    I can't find where I read it now but there's an official statement somewhere saying this is a visual glitch and the highest values you see is in fact what the values truly are

    I did not unequip. It was my last slot in both cases. I was excited to see my damage rating go up and then the opposite happened lol.

    Thanks. I am going to assume visual glitch which might make sense since it happened twice in a row to 2 different survivors. For both, I lost 150 attack damage.

    Just to add. I was adding badges to survivors who were not in my mission line up. So there shouldn't have been any leader bonuses.

    I don't think the highest values are what the actual amount truly are. The highest value is the max possible if you fulfill all the survivor team bonuses, as @sbf suggested. I did a little experimenting and that seems to be the case. It seems that when you first open the app and look at your survivor roster, their health and damage show the max possible if all the bonuses are fulfilled. As soon as you put one in your lineup of 3, the actual bonuses are taken into effect. Then once you swap them out for someone else, their values display no bonuses once viewing the roster again. That's why my video was showing each of them having 3 different values at various points.

    Maybe you should use all epic & shouldn't put any legendary component to craft then you wouldn't be mad of the result.

    Haha, I have actually upcrafted 3 legendary badges with that combo, so I was long overdue for some bad luck.

    Does anyone know if badges auto scrap like gear when you go over your allowed limit?

    You can't craft more badges than the allowed limit, you'll have to scrap badges to craft new ones

    Thoughts and feedback on the badges system, great pulls from the Craftsman? This is the place for it.

    Hi Teeceezy, Can you please tell me if Ng are looking at changing the crafting system. All the feedback I can see is pretty much all players are not happy with the current system. using all Legendary components and not guaranteed a Legendary badge but can get Rare or Epic? They are so hard to come by I cant understand why its not just simple, you get what you craft. Also the cost to swap them out seems very unfair, like changing weapons and vests is free. Any feedback is appreciated on this .

    I still believe it would be horrible (in current UI) to have badges swap for free.
    It is already a swapping fest just for gear. If I'd be swapping badges too, well it would become rather annoying.
    I know this is a choice, but I'm glad I don't have the choice :p. Because I would be swapping them all the time and it would take the fun out of my gaming experience.

    @The_Overcomer
    I have to agree with @jimmorrison369 with his statement.
    As for the rest of your comment, I agree but Goodluck with that. Many have said the same thing with no response :s

    I agree to an extent. I think badges should be semi-permanent otherwise we would spend more time prepping each level than actually playing. But the 15 gold penalty is a bit unfair as well. Someone suggested this at an earlier point and I think it's a fantastic idea: remove the unequip fee every Monday. That way, it won't interfere with the challenge or the Distance and will give us players a chance to try out new badge combinations or upgrade our survivors with new badges we have crafted.

    I have crafted 3 all legendary component badges and all 3 have been epic or lower. It is really weak to get a lower badge when it takes so long to collect the legendary components.

    Ha, first thing I thought with @Governator 's comment, was "uh oh, watch out, Al Franken!" Here's where it gets interesting, because that one silly thought led me down the following path, literally in seconds. Al Franken is a senator from Minnesota. Jesse "the Body" Ventura was once the governor of Minnesota. JV was in Predator with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Arnold, when he was governor of California, was commonly referred to as.....yup.....The Governator. Bam, full circle.

    If this were 20 years ago, and I were under the influence of hallucinogens, as was so common back then, this would have absolutely blown my mind.

    Sorry for going off topic, but this was a cool full circle of quick random thoughts.

    I don't see the point in it costing gold to unequip a badge. Gold should be used to re-roll a badge or upgrade one instead.

    Hi everyone! I'm level 40 player and I've never crafted badges yet. Now I've collected lot of components and I'm ready. I have a question: is badge powerful influenced by player's level or not? Thank you
