LEVEL FOUR (Grand Master)
Level four, Grand Master, is the first of two elite levels in Badge Quest. To attain the Grand Master level in Badge Quest, it's no longer about the quantity of badges you have. Instead, qualification is now based on the point values we've assigned to each badge (the harder the badge is to attain, the more points it is worth). If the total points value of your collected badges puts you in the top 200 of all players, congratulations, you're a Badge Quest Grand Master!
TIP: Check your Zing Badge Quest page to determine your current position on the leaderboard.
As a Grand Master, you also qualify for MONTHLY prizes! Yes, every month that you're a Grand Master, you'll automatically receive these prizes:
LEVEL FIVE (Grand Master Elite)
Level five in Badge Quest is Grand Master Elite. To attain this highest level in Badge Quest, the total point value of your collected badges must put you in the top 20 of all players.

Q & A
Q: Where will my badges, points, etc. be displayed?
You can view your badges on the Badge Quest page at TripleClicks.
Q: How many badges are available?
There are currently more than 100 member badges available.
Q: Where can I find out what my current level is in Badge Quest and what I need to advance to the next level?
This information is provided for you on the Zing member Badge Quest page.
Q: Are the prizes awarded retroactively? For example, if I am qualified today as a Badge Quest Pro, do I get the Rising Star and Pro prizes?
Sorry, no. The program is designed specifically to award achievement going forward from the debut date of the game, not for things you've already achieved. This of course also makes it feasible for us to award bigger prizes.
Q: If I drop back a level in Badge Quest, do I get the prizes when I requalify again at my former level?
No. Prizes will be awarded only once per level. Special Note: Once you achieve the level of Rising Star, Pro, or Master, you cannot be "demoted."
Q: When are Rewardicals awarded?
Rewardicals for the first three levels are awarded upon achieving a new level (within 24 hours). For the Grand Master and Grand Master Elite levels, leaderboard positions are finalized at 11:59:59 pm CT on the last day of the month and Rewardicals are awarded the following day (first day of each month).
Q: What about badges that new members cannot attain because they represent obsolete games, actions, or are otherwise unavailable now?
They will still count for the first three levels (Rising Star, Pro, and Master), but these badges have no point value for Grand Master and Grand Master Elite, as it be would be unfair to new members who would be unable to collect those badges.
Q: Where can I see how many points each badge is worth for the the Grand Master and Grand Master Elite levels?
Click HERE to access the Badge Quest page, then click a badge for a popup showing the points value for that badge. Important Note: For badges that have the trim options, you'll earn 2x the badge's base value if your badge has the bronze trim, 3x the badge's base value for silver trim, and 4x the badge's base value for gold trim.
Q: Achieving the top 200, and especially achieving the top 20, could be a very challenging task. Might those numbers be increased?
We want the Grand Master and Grand Master Elite levels to truly be elite. However, as more people begin participating in Badge Quest, we definitely will look at increasing the numbers to reflect a larger pool of players.
Q: For Grand Master and Grand Master Elite, can I lose my title if other players overtake me in points?
Yes. To retain your elite title, you must maintain your position in the top 200 for Grand Master or top 20 for Grand Master Elite each month. See the Badge Quest page to determine exactly where you are currently positioned.
