Will achievements from games that already include them be carried over as actual achievements? Crush the Castle and Exit Path are great examples.

Should merits be included as achievements in AG3, It just seems to go together.

This has already been discussed. If the game developer rebuilds their game to include our Achievement system and has kept track of your old achievements in the game, then they could unlock your new Achievements on the AG3 web site the next time you play the game.

The CTC series and Exit Path game obviously do keep track of those values, but if a game doesn't currently have any in-game Achievement, like "you finished the first 5 levels", then adding our Achievement system in their game would mean that you as a user would have to replay the game to win those Achievements. This is nothing we can control -- if the gamedev didn't have the forethought to track things like that, there's nothing Armor Games can do about it.

Not really. We're looking at ways to romote' game comments on AG3 that we think are worth showing to all users, but it may be part of our Reputation system. AG3 won't have "merits" like AG2 does.

Yeah, we're not sure yet how we'll display them, or if we just show ALL achievements you've gained, or let you pick your favorite 10 achievements to show off on your profile, etc..

Or maybe a combination ... you pick your top 10 and we'll also show the most recent 10 you won, or something. We're still working out those details.

This sounds good. I notice on the beta site in our armory there's an achievements sidebar, you could have the recent achievements and the sidebar to click to see all - as i think displaying all achievements could clutter up a profile.

So will it have something alike to SC2?
Where you have a 'Showcase' area. Which is basically the top 5 achievements you think are your greatest.

Agreed. We'd probably list every game where you've gained at least one Achievement, and when someone clicks through, they'll see your progress.

I believe the showcase system JalapenoFez proposed is a good idea. 5 achievements would probably be better than 10 (and of course, as mentioned, a possibility to look at the whole of them if interested).

Someone mentioned Armatars related to specific games (i.e. I got to lvl 41 in Exit Path, I get the Exit Path armatar). Another possibility could be to add a set of Armatar that are related to the amount of achievements you have accumulated, independently of your AG points. Those Armatars would of course reflect your ability to play games through instead of your involvement in the community, comments-leaving and game-rating that are reflected by your amount of AG points.

The two systems would therefore be complementary.
