The AQW Team are always working to improve the gaming experience for all players. Recently, we implemented changes that will prevent the use of third party programs from loading a selection of rare and seasonal badges.
These badges were added to the game in a specific way which made them targets for these third-party bot programs. That has been fixed now. If you see any of these badges disappear, it means that badge was not obtained legitimately.
If you ever used a third party program in the recent or distant past (or shared your account with a friend or family member, and they used one with your account) that may explain why your badge/s disappeared.
We will not be taking any action on accounts which had badges removed, but please remember that using third party programs is not safe and is a violation of our game rules and Terms of Service.
Note: these actions will not retroactively apply to people who admitted hacking and got a 1 day ban for removal of the badges.
