This Badge existed in BadgeGen v3. With the 4.x release in early 2020 the upper requirements were reduced some. The reason was to make it more even with The Brainiac. At this point in time there were 16000 Geocachers who had The Brainiac Diamond, but only 6500 who had The Rugged Cacher Diamond. As Project-GC see these as equivalents, even though they are opposites, Project-GC figure they should be similarly hard to achieve. At the same point in time The Brainiac got its requirements increased.
