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.

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.

I wanted to write this on the topic of ranks, but seeing as it is locked, I figured achievements might be close enough


Nope.

No, we've already said that Achievements/AP will not unlock armatars when we launch.

I haven't been following this thread too closely, so it might have already been said, but Maybe, in addition to in game achievements, there could be achievements for activity on the site. Some such as post record on the forums or rating/ playing so many games.

I'm not sure I agree. It would give people an excuse to go on a spree of rating games they haven't even played just to grab an Achievement. Then again, it might be a way to encourage members to play more games...hmm.

Yh that would be awesome. It is slightly frustrating that you spend time playing game for nothing..

I like the idea of achievements. Makes you play more lol. I think it'd be cool to have achievements you earn for playing popular games as well as being involved on the site.

When the achievment thing starts if we already passed an achievment would we have to pass it again to actually recieve the achievment?

That would depend on the game. I think some games will transfer achievements while others will not.

do i think there should be achievement for the games. such as getting to lvl 20 or doing some other thing in it. they should award bonus AP based on dificulty like on Kongregate. that will be a huge upgrade for AG making it even cooler than Kongregate.
