Crescents are awarded for achieving first, second, or third place in an official, non-Vendetta competition. Rendered from solid shanks of hollinium, crescents are cast symbolically in the shape of the dark star eclipsing the Brotherhood homeworld of Antei. Each crescent is studded with jewels, ranging from quartz to diamond, dependent upon the crescent’s value. Some of these jewels are believed to be taken from the stores of Okemi and are embued with dark energy. The most active within the Brotherhood possess quite a collection of crescents.

Tiering

Crescents are automatically processed by the database when a competition is judged and closed. The following outlines the appropriate crescent tier based on the target unit:

Tier Target Unit Upgrades at
Tier 1 Crescents DC-run DJB-Wide Competitions No Upgrade
Tier 2 Crescents Non-DC DJB-Wide Competitions 10 Participants
Tier 3 Crescents Clan Competitions 10 Participants
Tier 4 Crescents House Competitions 10 Participants
Tier 5 Crescents Battle Team Competitions 5 Participants

Additionally, crescent tiers scale as follows:

  • Upgrade one tier at a scaling threshold of participation (crescents may only upgrade once per competition)
  • Parent competitions with three or more sub-competitions run one tier higher than their sub-competitions
  • Downgrade one tier if the competition involves low effort flash and mobile gaming

First Level

These elite crescents are reserved for Brotherhood-wide competitions hosted by members of the Dark Council or those special events, such as the Independence Games, which garner large numbers of participants.
