I have for the second time reached the milestone of completing sojourner with more than the 360 days. I was expecting my counter in the medal to now display x2.
Does this only happen when the 360 days are consecutive? And if so, why.. that seems stupid to me.
Looking forwar to thoughts and opinions.
Sojourner is like every other medal: You get x2 when the corresponding counter reaches x2 the value for Onyx. For Sojourner, that would be 720 days.
If that feels unforgiving, well, I suppose that's why Epoch uses a different mechanic for basically the same thing.
you need 720 consecutive days on Sojouner to get x2
It's badly designed, but "Reaching 360" is not what gives you a point, but making your number x times 360. 1 = 360, 2 =720, 3 = 1080.
In this way, Sojourner is different to every other badge, because all progress can be wiped clean away easily.
Sojourner has always been a poorly designed badge, given that people with couch portals had an enormous advantage in achieving it (although the drone fixed this part), and you can lose ALL progress for reasons like:
If you want the red badge, none of these things can happen for 720 days. Even for Onyx or Plat, that's 360/180 days.
I've long ago accepted that gold's as high as I'm getting that badge, and that if I want something that shows extended regular activity that isn't completely cancelled by any of the above, the Epoch badge is what Sojourner should have been.
I've lost sojourner to a **** in he family, a hurricane, a Caribbean cruise, and to just being careless and losing it. I just got my 720 day flair on it last month.
