Badges in Dark Souls 3 are icons earned from competing in the Hollow Arena. The Badges will change depending on the honor or rank achieved in the arena. There are 2 different badges, Duel Honor for the 1v1 duels and Brawl/Co-op Match Honor for the Brawls and Co-op matches.

The Badges will be showed beside the name of the phantom when summoned into another world (Even for co-op or invasions) and can be checked in the right corner of the Undead Match menu in the Firelink Shrine Bonfire after adquiring and burning the Champion's Bones.

The exact arena rank system is currently uncertain.

There are four honor ranks: Iron, Bronze, Silver and Gold. Consecutive losses will lead to a rank demotion. If you are demoted, you can still regain your previous rank by winning the required number of matches to ascertain the next rank. Of course, any losses in the time in which you are attepting to rank up will increase the total number of matches needed to rank up.

      I like the rank system because you don't get matched against really good opponents from the very beginning. I could feel the difference between Iron/Bronze/Silver/Gold. Though if you win enough you rank up quickly, so there can alway be an exception.

        I got my gold badges. However, the true PvP are pontiff sulyvan bonfire to a or Londo bonfire runs with dried fingers + get white phantoms what you get is; Nonstop invaders; Aldrich Faithful and Regular invaders. It's an all out war imo.

            I was gold. Lost 20 out of 30, down to bronze. Then preceded to lose 5 more... and I'm silver again.

            Having a very bad day in the arena but was weird to get promoted off a loss streak from hell.

              They need to add at least 3 badges level! This would result in a lot of movement in the arena, now brawl matches are dying. More badges will also help to show better the players ability, there are some double gold that are real casuls.

                I got gold and then immediately lost say, 4 rounds in a row (same guy, being a douchebag because i was "knife spamming"). Got demoted to silver. Since my demotion iv easily won about 30 more times, and lost about 10ish. No promotion The badges dont actually mean anything for your pvp skill anyways. The majority of people in duels use VERY cheap builds. Id consider my own build pretty frustrating to fight against, considering my 46% physical defense and super high AR and poise on my crucifix. And yet im taken down by people that turtle behind buffed shields and poke me with rapiers, guys that smash the dodge button against their forehead to quickstep for 6 years before lunging once, pyromancers and casters that do nothing but backtrack and spam spells, and duel ugs users with their edgy armor and overpowered weapon (yes i think its still overpowered. One full combo kills me, and i have 46% physical defense)

                  True confession: I am awful at PVP in Dark Souls. I hold silver rank, but I've lost at least as many matches as I've won and never been demoted. So what I'm getting from my experiences, and other comments, is that it's just a little bling for your ego, and it's not even consistent while being that. Disappointing, but I do appreciate the addition of the arena itself.

                    Really nice to be able to duel one against one without estus and too much running around, i enjoy every aspects of PVP in all Soulborne titles, but its quite enjoyable to have this option now.

                          Double gold here. Sometimes when I play with the same pIayer two consecutive matches I noticed that they got promoted after losing the previous match vs me.

                            those medals are as useless as it gets, takes one about 2h to get gold on a fresh start from 0 l/w with a straight sword....some actual rewards would be sweet
