Here are current Hackstreak Medals:
Proposal for a new Onyx Medal design:
With a new design the Onyx Medal is more in line with the rest of Statistic Badges.
The most recent onix medals are no longer entirely black and are following the design of the Resonance medal, a new style: faded black.
Since the black Medal of Resurgence (and its lack of frame) it was getting weird.
atleast the plat and onyx should be a little darker imo.
I like it! All it's missing is the classic teal accent that most onyx medals have. I did a quick Paint job to add them back in.
I'm kinda not a fan of the gloss effect on the Bronze, Silver and Gold ones, still. But I do like seeing the classic level markers returned to the border.
I agree this requires attention from the graphics design team
My problem with the color of the onyx Epoch medal is not that I don't like it, because I don't think it's bad, but the fact that at a quick glance it looks like a platinum medal too much to me.
Here is for example the onyx Epoch alongside the platinum Trekker:
I would like my onyx medals to clearly stand out against the other medal tiers
I would like if all the gameplay badges had a more consistent colour design. Challenges etc I don't care, but anything with Bronze-Silve-Gold-Plat-Black should all look the "same".
We're dealing with several different art teams in the past 10 years. I think the inconsistency shows the different teams/time periods of Ingress.
Plus they made a distinct choice to change the appearance of the badges at one stage, which is why Onyx Guardian still looks like it did. It was never updated.
I do think the Onyx tier is too "silvery" though, for Epoch.
Indeed, same thing for year 8 medal while year 9 black intensity is as expected. Maverick medal design should be reviewed as well...
Still that even the recent ones are not consistent. If you compare medals of years 8 and 9 for example. Year 8 is a faded black and with year 9 we are back to "old school" onyx style. So difficult to find a rational.
Art style is one thing, but they could at least keep colouring consistent.
bronze silver and gold looks fine, its the plat and onyx that should be have a little better colors and stand out from the others as its now they dont... onyx too silverish..
Yep it needs to be less like a platinum badge , but watch this post make no difference, I respect you for trying.
I'll sign this one
I really like the suggested changes. And anything that makes silver versus platinum more visible would also be a good thing.
Yep the colour should bee changed
