    [OFFICIAL] Rank Icons

    Anyone want to take a stab at creating icons for rank? We need 3: Bronze, Silver, and Gold, and they need space for a number in the middle. We'd like each to look distinctly different (not just color) so you can tell rank at a glance.

    Here's the current badges, for reference:

    I think the udamage would be a good idea?

      It looks great, but already has another purpose in the hud which might only end up confusing people. making new glyphs in the same vein however, might work. I'd also choose a larger and more readable font in relation to the icon.

        Well, I don't know if this will confuse people. When I was making this, I thought it wouldn't... I can try a different glyph, although I would really like pushing this further. I'm thinking a little bit of texture on the colors would be cool. It looks a bit shiny perhaps.

        I followed your advice on the font, and yes, it looks a lot better

          I think the current ones look great with that Liandri logo reference.

            We would really like each icon to have it's own distinct shape/look.

                Henrik what about to design some stylized shaped like a that trophy cup image printed in the ut99's old box (that one with blueish background) and putting in it the number in middle lower part of the thropy cup?
                its only a suggestion I think this shape cpuld be more "recognizable" as a trophy cup or so..

                  Some of these old emblem shapes might be adaptable.

                    Orange "trophy emblem" is super cool imo

                      Another version more defined (bolded a bit their colours and shapes, the fonts are increased a bit but leaving more room for number of two digits


                      Hey henrik Im not pro in design this is my try lol, this sketch is based on your work if you do want I could pass you the psd file to play with your ideas on it cya!
                      pd: Obviously the colours and size font are editable its only a test

                        I think the Henrik's trophy looks really cool, but how to make 3 cool AND distinctly different ones?

                        Here's my unpro attempt to give ideas to different shapes with paint. :P

                        I was also thinking some kind of combination between these two UT99 SP trophies, but I don't know how to make a clean looking icon from them.

                          Unreal Chevrons

                          I think the current icons have something going. Generally, I find chevrons are associated with ranks so it's pretty immediate in terms of meaning and form at a glance. The examples below are simple chevrons with the unreal style tips on the left and right tips.

                          Henrik's orange trophy would be fantastic for an achievements or rewards section of the UI, if there is any in the future.

                            I was actually thinking of something more simplified than the references I posted, certainly including the U would be overkill for rank icons. Might post something a bit later.
