PAX West 2019 Forum Badge Thread

While we wait for the PAX West 2019 passes to open up, let us start designing the forum badge for this year shall we?

For those of you who are new to this, the forum badges were created as a means to recognise other forum members amongst the vast host of people who attend PAX West. To get one you simply have to be a member of this forum and collect one from the Pre PAX board game night or the BYOC registration desk during PAX West itself.

So here are the three choices for the theme for the PAX Forum Badge of PAX West 2019:

1) The Dark Souls of Forum Badges
2) If EA made the Forum Badge
3) Match 3 Forum Badge

Let me know which one grabs you the most by responding to this post with 1,2 or 3 and we shall put it to the vote on THURSDAY 18TH JULY At which point the winner will be designed and tweaked until the final version is settled upon prior to printing.

    #2 This option should be a source of all kinds of fun. :P

    Haha #2 sounds like a great option.

  • IncreaseBlueIncreaseBlue Registered User regular
    I have to say #2 is really enticing.

  • GONG-00GONG-00 Registered User regular
    So #2 could be a half finished design that will be complete by next year’s Pax? ;p

    I was thinking more along the lines of having the front boasting how it does not feature loot boxes or micro transactions and the back be the list of executive producers who have all since been given a bonus for not being monsters, without any sense of self awareness.

    #2 so we can talk about all the features it’s going to have, and then release an unfinished badge.


  • IncarnadineIncarnadine Registered User regular
    #2 sounds great.

  • anettie76anettie76 OregonRegistered User regular
    I have to agree with most....#2 is what I choose too. So much can be some with that.


  • Garet_JaxGaret_Jax SeattleRegistered User regular
    #2 has amazing potential, ha. That's my vote.

  • BluemeaneBluemeane Registered User regular
    Oh yes #2 please! (Foresees a landslide this year)

  • DashDDashD Dread Pirate Chef Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    #2 could be so entertaining!

    Good to see you again @kropotkin !
    Sounds like you and many others are liking the sound of the #2 option.
    Are you saying we community members have no self-awareness? lol

    Hey Kropotkin, good to see ya back at this again this year! I have always enjoyed the forum badges, with last year's holding a special place in my heart.
    As far as what I want this year's badge to be, I'm going with the majority and saying #2. Definitely lots of potential and fun to be had with that one.
    See you in September! :)

    I really need to see #2, even if it doesn't win.

    ...Are you going to hide the badges behind an annoying login page?

  • SinoSambaSinoSamba CaliforniaRegistered User regular
    I'm all in on #2. Great idea.

    Everyone is going with the second option, but I gotta throw in my vote for #1!

  • zerzhulzerzhul Registered User, Moderator mod
    I do not understand #3
    I... think #2 is entertaining, but I'm not sure it's something I would... *want*? haha
    I am not sure I know what #1 would entail

    For No. 1 I was thinking of some dark gothic imagery for the front of the badge and on the back some rather long description of the lore behind the badge all written in the same style as a 'Souls game. The people listed on the back would be everyone who left messages for other PAX attendees with tips on avoiding the Ticket Tout boss monster without using a Summon along with the music CD mini-bosses that reside outside the WSCC.

    The tagline would read 'You Will PAX'.


  • davobahdavobah Registered User regular
    ooh. #1 is sounding really good!

    Number 2 all the way!

  • draklandraklan Chocobo in time the Frosty North... mmm FrostingRegistered User regular
    I would have said 1 but seeing as 2 is the popular choice that would be great as well. As always thanks for doing these Kropotkin.

    2 is definitely the popular choice but I think any of the three would be fine. I can only imagine #2 being littered with lists of useless microtransactions, pre-order bonuses and deluxe edition perks. That could be fun. :)

  • Aardvark VulgarAardvark Vulgar Registered User regular
    2 is my vote

  • Sleepy KittySleepy Kitty Registered User regular
    I love match 3 games , BUT I really want to see what you come up with for # 2 , so that is my choice this year ... once again thanks for taking your time to make these

  • Captain Ironsides Captain Ironsides Registered User regular
    I vote for 2.

  • nixternixter roughly Portland, ORRegistered User regular
    I'll vote for #3, but #2 will be fine, of course.

    I like the terribleness of 2 :D

    1 sounds pretty, but I've not played much Dark Souls so it feels weird to me.

  • DracilDracil Registered User regular
    If #2 does that mean we get a quarter of the badge? With the rest of the badge made up of 1) saying we're getting the badge now and 2) paying extra for the collector's edition and 3) paying extra to get the final "DLC" next year?

    Darn I missed this or I would have said #1 but looks like 2 got a lot of votes.

    Go for the eyes Boo, GO FOR THE EYES!

  • Mr Je11ymanMr Je11yman Registered User regular
    #2 is just too tempting. Love it.

    The consensus so far seems to be #2. I like the idea behind #1 personally. I dread having to continually so "No" to the horde of CD pushers outside the door.

    So, I'd have say #1.

    #2 sounds like it would be pretty damn amusing.

  • cbelleviecbellevie Registered User regular
    Late to the party, but #2 sounds like the fun way to go.

  • forbiddenvoidforbiddenvoid Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    Number 2 sounds like fun!


    PAX. PAX. PAX. Boom.
  • vespachicavespachica SeattleRegistered User regular
    I am liking #1 as per your description. That sounds super neat.


  • TOGSolidTOGSolid Drunk sailor Seattle, WashingtonRegistered User regular
    #2 sounds like an adventure straight into memetown but #1 sounds like it'd be potentially more artistically interesting. Both sound fun to me!
