New Trophy is uninspiring

I don't know about anyone else who finished their trees, but I really liked the old trophy you earned, not only because it looked professional, but it also had the flag of your country!! It really was a token that you could treasure.

However, the new trophy is just a cartoon, that doesn't seem like it should be a trophy, and it has no flag!

Does anyone else have any thoughts about this?

Or at least have the Duo trophy superimposed in front of the correct flag or perhaps a circular medallion of the flag.

Anyone know what the space duo is for?

https://www.duolingo.com/Zach1337

My guess is an outfit. On the app version, you can buy outfits for Duo.

I was thinking something like that, or it could be something new. It isn't on the app though.

It is, but unfortunately only for iOS. You can buy Outfits for the Coach. Looks like this is going to be added in the Web-Version as well.

Here's a link to the Facebook-Post about the Coach. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=671519492892223

I have iOS, I mean that the spacesuit isn't one of the suits you can buy. At the moment you can buy the gold suit and the one with the monocle.

I liked the flag too, and I was a bit disappointed it's gone. But hey, you still get a trophy :-)

I didn't want to comment at first - I called myself a fossilized case for getting attached to the way things were. But really I find most of the aesthetic changes for the worse (sorry Duo!!!). Everything looks generally more childish. It's probably useless to comment. They put a lot of work into it, so they aren't going to change it soon.

I too was dissappointed in the new trophy design. Everything else about the new design is cooler and more efficient, but the trophy design could have been worked on a little more..

True, I liked the old one better as well. Also, I still can't share my trophy on Facebook!

Also, it's missing on the iOS app. I used to scroll down and admire my trophy for ages, like a [missing simile, can't think of one right now].

I'm more concerned with the site's ability to help me speak and understand another language than the aesthetics.

Redesign looks very nice, and you've worked to satisfy old users, but it still feels harder to use, two weeks later.

My trophy looks like below and I don't find it 'uninspiring'. I actually like it (shiny and all) and I know what tree it is from (because I switched to it):

The point is that all the trophies look exactly the same. They need something to distinguish themselves from each other in my opinion.

I agree, I like the old design so much better! In fact, i have this as my Facebook cover photo:

5 trophies

If I earn any more trophies, they better be the same design.
