how will we earn AP for those kind of games?

Unless they add achievements, you won't earn points.

Everytime you get an achievement, you'll get armor points depending on it's difficulty

What about MMO achievements? They are in Fantasty Online and The last stand: dead zone, which are really cool games. Would you get AP for those? because if it were i would have hundreds more of AG points. And Jblaze101, be serious.

MMO achievements probably wouldn't work well since you have to pay on most of them to progress.

An achievements feature, if properly executed, might be an interesting upgrade to the site, but not to the exclusion of the current rank/point system. Achievements would need to be something earned in addition to the normal APs, and perhaps grating APs and being listed on profiles the same way Merits are. Personally, I would be in favor of some achievements linked to game such as the Raze series and Strike Force Heroes. However, I cannot stress enough that doing away with the current, well-established system in exchange for "karma," activity levels, achievements, or any of the other similar things discussed would end up being a bad thing. If it ain't broke, don't "fix" it. Upgrade it, yes, but don't mess with what you know works.

It is broken. I've explained in another thread. You also failed to explain how it would be a bad thing.

1. Broken: How? (Yes, I saw your other post, but please elaborate as pertinent to this thread.)
2. Bad thing: Many people still like the current system. Also, the proposed new system seems overly complicated. "Karma" for site usage? Really?
AG - something people like = people forsaking AG = Bad Thing.
AG + something overcomplicated = people forsaking AG = Bad Thing.

However:
AG + improvement (achievements) + something people like (see above) = people being happy/more people using AG = Good Thing.

Broken: AP system is easily abused and only rewards for community involvement.
Improved: AP system for achievements in games will offer a challenge, and reputation rewarding for community involvement. Reputation is a simple up/down vote system that will be monitored so people don't abuse it. Look at a site like Imgur for reference.
Bad thing: That's outdated information. The latest information on it was it'll be up/down vote system like Imgur. They have ranks for their system and stuff.

Hardly negative, only a few people truly care for armor points. It wouldn't affect the site, and people would replace them if you're worried about numbers.
