Hey everyone,

Here's a sticky thread to put achievement-based ideas and discussion.

Our plan is to engage game developers to send us periodic information about your game play, such as how many castles you've toppled in Crush the Castle, or how many times your dinosaur jumped in Treadmillasaurus Rex, etc. and that these pieces of information would accumulate to award you 'achievements' on AG3.

We're actively designing and building the achievement system right now, so as we have information, we'll share it here, but we're welcome to listen to ideas and feedback along the way.

I think that there should be an achievement for how much time someone has spent on armor games.... Also for leveling up.... Squire knight lord etc etc


I think it's been said that achievement will only be awarded for games. Also, the current ranking system might not happen in AG3.

We've already said this won't happen. Unless someone changes Dan's mind on the issue.

There's a sticky thread about ranks/ag-score, that talks about a wikipedia list of rank names that Ron and Larry are mulling over.

game's achievements should be saved in form of a badge on our accounts... and then we'll get points depending on how hard it is... then you could brag to your friends on how much you mastered the game

There should be a page on your profile for game achievements, and another one for stuff you do on AG. Maybe these achievements could give points, too.

I believe that mimicking what other sites do for an achievement system would be wrong. Armor games needs to stand out in the achievement system! I don't think you should get armor points for each achievement, more like armor points for your first 5 and then 15 then 50. If armor games adding something exotic, then more people would be drawn to playing. I'm not very creative on this so I am sure someone will think of a great way to take the achievement system to a new level!

I think the appeal with achievements is it will make game-play more appealing and make those who pride themselves on gaming stand out more on the site: The fact this is how you will earn your score on the site makes the score mean more i guess.
The fact there will be a separation in score/rep is a great idea.

I don't think the 5, 10, 50 thing would work, because why not be merited for achieving your progress throughout games?

I know it's a similar system to Kongregate but i reckon it'll be executed on a greater scale here.

We don't know yet how many points will be given per achievement. We'll probably work with each game developer individually to implement achievements on the site.

You don't have to give achievements to EVERY game. But don't only give it to Armor Games made games. Just give it to a large amount of games. It would be copying other sites, but there isn't a better way for achievements.

They never said they were planning on adding achievements for every game. They're planning them for the fairly popular games (Elephant Quest, Kingdom Rush, CTC, Exit Path, etc.).

And I do believe they are just gonna ask the AG game developers to add achievements to their games due to copyright issues as well as the off site developers giving a hard time about changing their game just for 1 website.

No, it'll be part of the AGI library that all game developers can use for things like online game save, high scores, etc.

achievements are realy over-rated.
ive played super mario bros for years whitout a single achievement.
compleeting the game was a achievement on it's own. and there was no need to show-off your "skillz" whit achievements.

AP gives purpose to achievements, so I don't think achievements are overrated.
