In a totally unscientific poll of the posters on this thread, I have concluded the following:
  • People saying "what are you talking about? I'm swimming in badges!" are from high-ranked servers.
  • People saying "I am wasting away in a desert devoid of badges!" are from low-ranked servers.
Personally, I barely have two* badges to rub together**, for all my efforts of killing noobs and spamming the F key.

**against my wvw armor set

Badge system is fine, just do more WvW and stop being terrible.

Having to loot badges is ridiculous. They should somehow be automatically awarded, or just make some sort of PVP Karma for kills and completing PVP objectives.

  Badge gear looks hideous. It really should be some of the coolest looking stuff in the game, since it is the most difficult to acquire. It should have some variety in looks, it should have some variety in stats.

  Other than that, no problems.

To translate,  don't have a real life & play WVW 24/7 to accumulate badges of honor which for the most part are pretty much useless aside for using them to buy siege gear & come across like being able to accumulate said badges of honor easily somehow provides status which makes you cool !

First of all I never said getting badges easily makes you cool, or makes you a status symbol, so nice try.
Secondly WvW is pretty much the endgame content, and you expect to get handfuls of badges for playing WvW for a hour. Good logic, why not have everything handed to you, hell they should just give legionaries out for free. The current system keeps the gear rare for awhile, not that you need the gear because you can just mix and match with orr sets.

Is it fair?  No, it is not fair.

I spent nearly 4 weeks in W v W and only gained about 78 tokens.  Those are from drops only, I never did the jumping puzzle.

You should get an amount of tokens for achieving a battlefield objective, such as capturing a tower, etc.  Having to click on the ground in the midst of a frantic zerg is a poor design choice.  The drop rate on those tokens is pathetic, too.

For those of you who say "build an arrow cart and u will have ten million tokens L O L" I don't want to build an arrow cart to get tokens, and besides that I haven't found them to be that effective versus anything but a brainless an unorganized zerg, and even then I have not gotten many tokens from using them.

Seems like a L2P issue. 4 weeks and 78 tokens? I can get 60 easily in a weekend just from player kills. Either you play 15 minutes a day, or you have no idea what you're doing in WvW. If its that hard for you to get tokens, just run the jump puzzle every day.

I don't know why people should feel like the jump puzzle is beneath them. There are plenty of lulls in WvW where you can pop over and run the puzzle for 5 minutes. Gets you some siege to help defend/attack with and your daily badges. The means are there, its up to you to use them.

Drrr Drrr Drrr Drrrrrrrrrr

When I do WvW, I do it for at least a couple hours at a time.  I help with battlefield objectives, I kill players, and I have 80 tokens.  No, it is not a L2P issue, it is a range issue.

Yes, the jump puzzle is beneath me.  I shouldn't get a higher reward for doing a jump puzzle than I do for holding off a siege for 30 minutes and killing a hundred people.  I didn't sign up for Super Mario Brothers, I signed up for WvW.  Every time you kill somebody you have a CHANCE at getting tokens, and if you are unlucky you could go quite a long time without ANY drops.

Then you must be missing a lot of loot bags (which is a separate issue I think needs to be addressed). That or you are exaggerating how many kills you are actually getting.

I just wish the drop rate wasn't so low so I could finally get my exotic accesories. Then I'd just stop caring.
