    I think that used to be the NS1 dev icon. Could be a custom badge on the server you were playing on too.

    No no no shhhhhh... Don't be telling everyone how to get it.
    Need to use one of those "Men In Black" date rape pens on you all now.
    If you Com on a Hive server for a bit of hours you will find yourself with one of these.

    That's a commander badge. You get it by being an experienced com on servers running Hive. No idea why it was removed from the changelog...

    if you loose the game, you need more hours to get it by the way. i think its 5 hours of winning or 10 hours of loosing. i dont think you can "grind", you will just be ejected

    I'm grinding for my badge and my NS2 hive skill has fallen from 400-440 skill to <100 lol. Not commander friendly!

    Yup, command a decent amount and you'll get that special badge. Time for more people to learn to command! :D

    The skill system is still being reworked so that commanders also get skill, ignore the skill value for the moment

    I've spent many, many hours commanding and I don't have that badge... I guess I don't play enough on Hive servers?

    How do you recognize Hive servers, anyway? Is there some thing as mod whitelist? Do I have to start playing on UWE servers now?

    Don't tell me you haven't seen the whitelist yet: http://hive.naturalselection2.com/servers/whitelist

    Otherwise little rule to go: Servers without any mods or servers with ns2stats are reporting to hive ;)

    If someone has it already, it requires way too little hours.

    I have only seen it in game on this skulk hogan guy.
    From my perspective UWE has been trying to both with what little resources they have given to the game. They don't have an AAA budget, let alone an indie game budget. They have the budget of a game that has been out 6 years. I want to say, don't half ass two things, whole ass one thing. I just don't think they have the resources to do it. Unlike many of the people on the forums, I guess I am just happy they are at least trying even though I may not like what they end up doing.

    I think the idea is not to have something super rare, but just a badge that says "this person already commanded enough to know what he is doing", and give a little incentive for people to actually try out commanding.

    Ya which is why a bronze badge would tell ya that and a golden badge would be the super rare for dem nerdy achievement desires. Win/win with only the cost of recoloring.

    Is it number of victories? Hours spent in a commander seat? Only a full 12v12 game? I can't find any documentation about it anywhere at all. Doesn't help that games on UWE official servers don't seem to be showing up on my hive stats either.

    Your in Euroland, NA west coast it must be rarer.

    I don't like this badge. Besides giving people a slight incentive to command, I see it more as a marker to who knows how to command. "Hey look, Nordic, you know how to command. Please command. Please. Please. Please." Some nights I just don't want to command.

    Anything that helps getting a commander sooner is a good thing, open to abuse by farmers...? Spent serious amount of time in the hive/chair and now starting again... so currently its a meaningless to me.

    @DolphinKing‌
    Command 10 hours and win those games.
    Or..
    Command 20 hours (or 30? cant recall) and lose those games.

    Basically its time spent commanding.. winning just gets you there faster, as an incentive. (as if you needed one to tell at those minions!)
    Also, someone teach the OP about the crop tool...

    Every time you ask for troubleshooting without providing system info, ATI adds a rendering bug for an upcoming game.
