I hate to say this, but I can’t get past the auto-match screen, so I’m guessing the servers are down again. When I saw how recent this thread was I immediately jumped on the chance to get the badges, since I’ve been trying off and on again for a few years.
The sad thing is, there are comments on the game probably on average one a day (ish) for the past year or two, from people that are trying to get the badges before the game gets taken down. If it’s possible to get the servers up and stable, and then organize a group event between Kongregate and Newgrounds (maybe have kind people that already have the badges be Newgrounds players?), then I think there could be a lot of participation, and a bunch of people could finally get the badges.
