Faction Icon Upgrades - Star Wars: Commander Hack-a-thon / July 2015
A system allowing players to earn cosmetic upgrades to their avatar to incentivize elder game PvP content. Inspired by Diablo 3's Paragon system, players earn a rank based on their number of total PvP battles won. The higher their rank, the more complex their avatar icon becomes. The project ultimately became a feature in the live game. I designed and implemented the system, including a utility to check and display the ranking of players, displaying a celebration when a new upgrade is earned, handling returning user flow for cases when an upgrade is earned while the player is offline, and methods to assist QA testing.
