This seems like a nice feature. I like the competition of achievements and I enjoy the challenge as well.

I imagine they'll be somewhere on your profile. Or there'll be a tab somewhere on your profile where it shows all your achievements.


Well when you click my armory, there's a tab that says achievements, although you can't click on it yet, so maybe a few will be on the profile, but that tab will be there for your friends to click on too maybe?


I didn't say where will it be shown I said how...

...EXAMPLE: Little achievment shields which you hover your mouse on giving you a description of how you earnt it.

So I'll ask again, how will the achievments be shown in the achievment section? How will it look?

How exactly will the achievments be shown?


I know to start we're showing them on the game play page under the game. I'm not sure yet how we're going to show them on your profile. And yes, ArmorL3gend, I believe they'll have some sort of tooltip pop-up or description of what you did to earn it.

Personally, I like Steam's approach where you can see a list of the person's games and the achievements for each, eg, my Civ 5 achievements page

I don't know exactly how the Achievements page will be laid out, but we'll probably group it per game, and only show the games you've earned Achievements for. (we won't list every game, just the ones where you've started earning Achievements)

This seems like a nice feature. I like the competition of achievements and I enjoy the challenge as well.


It will also be the competition of points, since community involvement (forums, comments, etc) won't award points any more.

How will the issue of hackers be addressed? Because I'm assuming that a few of these achievements will be based upon the final score, or how long it took to beat the game or a level, which is a problem even now when high scores aren't worth anything.

I've already stated that if we catch someone cheating, we can undo their Achievements, and ban them from gaining further Achievements on a temporary or permanent basis.

Depends how serious it is. We'll still have the same warning/tempban/perma-ban workflow when dealing with trouble users, but we'll have two levels on AG3 in this case... If we tempban or perma-ban a user from gaining Achievements, we may also tempban or perma-ban the user from the entire site if they've caused other trouble too.

I was talking to one of my friends on here and he posed a good question.
Will our game play be transferred over? Like, if an achievement is to get to level 10 on whatever game, and we've done it on AG2, will we automatically get the achievement or will it be reset?

I would be cool if when you earned Achievements they could increase your karma. Also it would be nice if you could review all of your achievements on your account, AND be able to see achievements that you have not completed yet.

@Jefferysinspiration: Your local flash storage currently looks for games as cache.armorgames.com; AG3 beta calls games something like gamemedia.armorgames.com for the time being, but at launch, it'll be the same cache.armorgames.com... so YES, your locally-saved progress will still be there. Of course, any game save progress the gamedev has built using OUR servers will still be there as long as you're logged in.

@destruction101 Achievements and Reputation are two separate things, and will never overlap (Reputation won't award Achievements, and vice versa). You'll be able to see your gained Achievements on your profile, and you'll be able to see Achievements you haven't won yet underneath every game that can award these Achievements.
