Rightnow the counter does nothing but show some stats, which you could also just see in a whole on on your statistics tab.
Would be cool to see some purpose to the counters

I do agree - I would love if, for instance, that any certified items you get above X level (level 5 I would assume, but even the first title), allow someone to set it as their personal title. Those of us who aren't top 0.1%ers will likely never get a title of Season X Grand Champ or any other e-sports titles, but it would be nice to have some customization on that front aside from showing your current XP rank or... nothing.

Hey xkoeckiiej, we deliberately did not add extra incentive because we did not want to alter players' in-game behavior in order to level up their certified items.

I could imagine that players would be upset if their teammates only started going for turtle or backward goals.

For that reason certified items should of never been added in the first place

This is what triggered all my "what does this actually accomplish?" comments, when the certified items released.

If you're not going to make the information useful in any way, why go to the trouble of collecting it in the first place?
We can already see the total accumulation of any particular stat, what is gained by knowing how many we have achieved with a specific cosmetic item equipped?

It looks cool to have a bunch of numbers associated with that item? Idk, I agree with you but thats a reason if you want one.

Yeah, I feel like if certified items have basically no value, they shouldn't be a 25% drop on items - it makes more sense to me at that point to have them at least at 50% if not up to 75-80%. Unless that also adds too much incentive to alter playstyle, but I don't think it would.

Also, though I generally agree that you don't want to give massive rewards that can alter playstyle, I feel like this one is small enough that it is much less likely to end up in ineffective play in most cases - the advantage of having a title at any level is someone can always put it on fairly early.

But yeah, maybe I'm just reflecting NoOne's view of "what does this accomplish?", especially since if you trade them, their slate gets wiped clean.

Actually, that's another thing - if they'd been programmed in such a way that they actually became unique items that kept their stats forever, and had a list of everyone who'd owned the item (even potentially with their own contributions to the item). The problem is that it's a little late to add that kind of flare to the items after they've been out for... what? 3 years already?

Funny, I remember my first certified item ever is a turtle Beret, so I tried during Snow Day. Fortunately I have find better. :tongue:

Indeed, I would like more available titles for all players or be able to select previous titles from previous levels instead one title that get replaced. I showing my only title, Rocketeer... but I got insulted and mocked because of my skill. :cry:

Here I was wondering if the items could ever got a sort of upgrade route. Like win 200 games and your item will change a bit. get bigger or maybe an extra color added on, but with the logic stated above that goes out the window :(
