Tournament Ribbons

With the maximal tournaments in the past I made ribbons for 1st-3rd places. I would be willing to make them again for different tournaments if you guys would be interested here are some of the past ribbons.

The idea's good, but I think you need to make em look more distinctive (ie have each different placing an entirly different colour rather than just a different colour border).

By just changing the border color I am able to keep each tournament separate, but still keep them distinct. Plus If I make a different design for each ribbon, I won't run out of designs one day and the players don't have to remember 3 different ribbons for one tournament... just one :).

Now Maybe if I changed the transparency of each ribbon for each place also, that might work too. 1st Place 100% opacity, 2nd Place 66% opacity and 3rd place 33% opacity .... hmmmm I will play with that tonight and post some test ribbons.

I think length, rather than colour, would work. Gold would be the longest, then silver being medium and bronze kinda small.

The easiest thing would be to have a small logo for each tournie, then put that on a standard gold, silver and bronze background.

The logo dosnt need ot be much, just a stylised version of it's innitials would do.

I could make 30x30 badges with the winners faction symbol in the background so it doesn't cover the actual badge. Depending on how the placing is set up I could make them for different finishing orders. How do you propose I distinguish them from one another ... I was think through transparency (faded) look for the lower placing badges. What are you guys thoughts on this?

I think you need something instantly recognisable as denoting rank, not something like different transparencies where you'd need to go and find out which is which. Size or colour (gold/silver/bronze) would work, even if it's the initials of the tournament that are coloured.

What about the CnC Generals rank symbols, they'd fit neatly into this perpose.

For those who dont know, the ranks are:

Maybe with the bottom block under the rank completely used for the tourney mark? Instead of the shield shape.

This thread is going well; the above could be easily paired with a faction symbol or placed on a background for other context (if, for instance, multiple prizes are awarded per tournament).

Good idea to start this conversation fuzz-butt.

I was originally using the ribbons with the maximal tournaments as they were kept small and didn't interfere with the signature significantly. I was using them not so much as a reward but as a way for people to wear them to show how they'd done, more like a badge of honor.

a tournament logo? like the current "attack/defend 'bot city."
Just a silhouette of some buildings and the rank above that on a transparent or gray background.
make a "participant", position 1/2/3 and MVP logo.

making them is done within an hour. hosting could be done on Seibertron if the were small enough and they could be easily attached to signatures without causing much strain.

rank symbols like above and color could just be in red/purple/green/yellow to distinguish the faction.

edit: exactly what I'm thinking mogwai.

same would go for scalp hunts.

I was using the chevrons as both a gold,silver,bronze and 1st, 2nd, 3rd place finisher. I don't think that a participant one would be needed as it would cause the sig to fill up rapidly. I would be willing to do a MVP one if the tournament were with teams as a solo tournament would get a placement badge already.

The wouldn't need to be hosted on Seibs as they could be integrated into the signature. If anyone didn't know how to, or didn't have the ability to do so I could help with that.

I was thinking about using that idea or just making the background the color of the badge winners faction.

I know about the implementing it in a current sig (example, Raphael Prime) but people change sigs and if it were small icons below a signature (merit badges) people would be able to click the picture/hyperlink and see the results in a thread. that saves a lot of time explaining what the picture is for all the time.

If you're talking adding it beneath a larger pic in a person's sig, that would violate the whole "one image per sig" rule, regardless of how tiny it is.

Though it would be the best way to go about things.

I know it's violating. But the draconian signature rules need their own Obama. It's time for a change!

it's either that, or have the sig hyperlink to an "achievements" thread (with no crap posting) that would list the achievements per user.
