When you level a badge up, you gain a badge with (Usually? Always?) different artwork than the initial badge. The problem (As I see it) is, the former badge is totally obliterated. You can't see it or display it.
As an example, let's say I have the Orange Knight badge from Castle Crashers. I could level the badge further and gain the Pink Knight, but the Orange Knight is my favorite knight! I would want to display it even after out-leveling it, if I could!
I don't know a whole lot about badges, but I do know that I like the icons for some badges more than some other icons, and that I lose these icons entirely if I actually put the effort (And, often, money) into leveling these badges up.
Does Valve not want me to level badges past my favorite badge icon (Which is a crapshoot if I can't see, wiki, or otherwise determine what the available badges even are)? Why doesn't Valve show EVERY badge you've earned, as opposed to just the top tiered badges among them?
Does anyone agree that they should keep old badges around for your list of badges, or wish they would? Am I just missing out on some enlightening information?
