Big, honking Emblem spoilers with huge bells and knobs on!

Posted December 17th, 2008 at 1:15 PM by Alter Ego

That's right, folks, after a good month of blogging inactivity, I have returned with plentiful spoil(er)s to share.

So, as many of you attentive peeps who actually read those community announcements have probably figured out already, we have a new feature here on PC: user Emblems. For the benefit of those of you who are tragically unfamiliar with this concept (and shame on you for not reading the announcement), emblems are small badges of recognition for your various PC-related accomplishments that will be displayed on your profile for all to see, BUT because we PC staffers are cruel, horrible people who love nothing more than to mess with the heads of you regular forumite people, we have a strict secrecy policy about the criteria by which these emblems are handed out.

There is, however, one loophole in this policy that I am now going to exploit for your benefit. Decipher the hints below and you will find the specific requirements for all (that's right: ALL) currently available PC emblems. For the benefit of those who enjoy the hunt, I have placed the information within spoiler tags.

Are you ready for this?

There's no turning back once you see it, you know.

Your virgin mind will be forever tainted.

Are you sure it is worth it?

Well, if you're this persistent, fine.

The most important thing...

...the single most important requirement for obtaining every single emblem currently known to PC, is...

...don't ask. Seriously, that's the number one best thing you can do to help you get those precious emblems. Don't ask for them, don't ask how to get them, just keep your eyes open and figure it out. Even if there was an emblem awarded for pestering staff at every turn, I'm quite sure that it's not one you would like to have on your profile.

Really, guys, the sole reason we are implementing emblems in the first place is 'fun', yet though not even a day has passed since the announcement, some of you are already treating this like serious business. Just relax and have fun with it.

And there you have it, folks; the big secret of emblem collecting. I wish you all a good hunt. ;D

    And for those users too lazy to read through this, tl;dr: "Don't call us; we'll call you."

    I believe that pretty much sums this up.

    Darn, I was hoping for a jack-in-the-box or something of the relative. Still, these are wise words that should be widely acknowledged.

    Well, I'll admit that I toyed with the idea of making a YouTube video with something to that effect involved and linking to it here, but in the end it seemed like a tad too much effort and I couldn't find any reasonable way to accomplish the same trick in writing so...yeah. Even my multiple interlinked spoiler tags of doom were denied by forum mechanics. >|

    And yeah, that would be the short of it: nothing that you couldn't deduce from the actual announcement, really, but hey: I figured there's at least some people who just saw 'emblems for the taking' and never looked further.

    I only asked for the supporter one because I wanted it to go along with my shiny blue badge. I don't plan on asking for any others. If I get another, I get it. Not a real biggie to me. It's just more flash to my 'file.
