I came 3rd at Smashbox III Amateur Singles. It's still an event at an offline tournament. Does it count?
Sure, if you feel like you clawed your way there with blood, sweat and tears.
If it was an easy 3rd, then not so much, but it's up to your judgment. The badge is meant to be a representation of hard work and dedication.
I'd be happy to claim the badge for the first time that Exor and I managed to fell the great beast Elton in tournament.
Managed to make 3rd place by beating Elton in some nail-bitingly close matches, when it would have most likely been 4th place otherwise. http://qldsmash.com/Results/WA?t=Myriade%20June%20Smash%204%20Singles
