First player to achieve rank 80 and obtain the secret helmets



  • I’m here on behalf to congratulate Ky Wild for climbing the ranks all way from 0 to 80, he has been working hard. But you might just think, rank 80? that’s pointless since rank would just be a number once you reach past Rank 60 and obtain the pink helmet, but guess what.

    Latest patches, Torn banner has actually been so nice that they DID actually secretly add more helmets, so far we can confirm that there is a rank 70, and rank 80 helmet. (We are unable to confirm if there is a rank 90 helmet so far, maybe we never will, who knows?)

    Here is the proof that Ky Wild is rank 80, just follow him and you’ll see his rank:

    Here is a screenshot of Ky wild displaying the so called Rank 80 helmet, 'Diamond Hat’

    Screenshot was taken 24th of April 2014

    And here is a screenshot he provided me from his own customization window.

    Notice that there are a Rank 70 and rank 80 helmet.
    Platinum and Diamond.

    So far we got
    Silver Hat for rank 30,
    Black Hat for rank 40,
    Gold Hat for rank 50,
    Pink Hat for rank 60,
    Platinum Hat for rank 70 and
    Diamond Hat for rank 80.

    See what kind of system TB follows with their helmets? what do you think the rank 90 helmet might be?

    Too bad its going to take forver for me to reach rank 70 and 80…least I’m close to 60 and will get the pink helmet soon.



  • That third pic is photoshopped, lol.



  • @Pilgore:

    That third pic is photoshopped, lol.

    Don’t think you could use the same font as the one used in the customization, unless you managed to cut out (P-L-A-T-I-N-U-M-D-7-8) Letters with Capital letters and lowercase, especially fewer with the green colour marking it.

    But if one is just cutting out words, it’ll make weird pixels in the word.



  • Man, that’s a lot of botfarming.

    It’s not the words, its the helmet and head in the third pic. He should have made more anchor points. Unless I’m completely wrong here and TB could confirm (or not?) that this is real. I call bull for now. ^^



  • @Kreittis:

    Man, that’s a lot of botfarming.

    IF botfarmed, that’s a huuuuuuuuuuuuuge amount of botfarming.

    Like 100+ million XP

    Trying to look through the gamefiles for any more proof, and to check if Rank 90 helmet also exist, maybe even Rank 100?



  • its legit actually, if you look into the familyinfo files from the game you can find all the helmets lol



  • http://i.imgur.com/MP5yeaV.png <– If you look at your customization, all the helmets looks like ‘pixelated’ so idk.



  • Fuking ky wild the best player in the game easily, respect.

    lol at tbs who doesn’t even understand their own game, rank 80 isn’t even reachable but they make helmet for it, dummies.



  • Now that you mention it, I swear seeing this helmet worn by some of the developers of torn banner once on a server, they pretty much have all the helmets unlocked, that maybe explains that.



  • Beat it 'murricans.



  • @rumpelstiltskin:

    Beat it 'murricans.

    Sir ‘Pink’ will have a tough challange vs Ky ‘Diamond’.

    Beat it 'murricans.



  • Ah, if it’s legit, congrats! never knew these existed. I never play the game on low settings, the pixelated look would explain that.

    It’s legit, seen ky in game.

    Oh, that’s just 1786681 kills. Or 357336169 XP. Damn.

    It is probably more than that.

    Do you think it’s more likely he killed 2 times as many enemies than he ever has in the last week or so in a legit fashion? Or are you suggesting Ky knows a way to cheat in XP?

    I’m not really at all bothered about ranks and helmets, but I still don’t understand why someone would want to single themselves out in such a manner that it’s obvious they “cheated.”

    Because rank is a joke and I’ve said so since I started playing :) With all the bot farming that’s been going on it was just a fun thing to do


  • Mod

    I never trust players with unreacheable high ranks. (If played legit) If they’re smart enough to cheat the system in a way they get higher ranks. Who knows what other files they’re tampering with to make the game easier for themselves.
