Hello Everyone, the Gamerscore league is back! errr now called Achievement League. This change in title was made to reflect some changes, GS will still be a big factor but to celebrate all types of hunters we have some new ways to earn points. Hopefully this thread will motivate you to accomplish some of your gamer goals this year in 2021. So not only will you earn points for raw Gamerscore, you will also be able to net some points for Rare Achievements, completions, and Game Races/Platinums are back with a lil twist. So let's go over some of the rules and changes for this upcoming season and then we can right into the fun! (and let's ignore my typo in the banner and pretend it's a stylistic choice)
VGC Requirements to join: 100 posts
Xbox Requirements: Must have at least 2,000GS
How to join: Must have a TrueAchievements account.
You can join late into the season but you won't be added in the previous months thus missing some points. Everyone has till the end of February to be added to the January standings, yup you have a whole month to be able to join and be added into every month. January results will be posted in the begging of March, February's in the middle of March, and everything else after will be as normal. Feel free to use this thread as a means to talk about achievements and such as well as goals and the league.
WAYS TO EARN
There are 4 methods on earning points, 2 mainly focusing on GS and 2 focused on TA ratios
This one is a rather straightforward and classic way to earn points
The top 8 will earn points in order of the chart as well as anyone that earns any GS out the top 8 will net 1 point
2. RARE ACHIEVEMENTS
The top 8 most rare achievements (by TA ratio) will be awarded points. The same user can nab multiple spots. TA ratios will be subjected to the time the chart is updated. The Game in which the achievements are from need a sample size of at least 1,000 players on TrueAchievements.
3. GAME PLATINUMS
Most MS published and big 3rd party releases will be eligible for platinum status. Also I'm open to hear what the community wants to be added to the platinum list. To earn points simply hold at least 750G in the game, this will net you 5 points and earn you Gold status, achieve the full 1,000GS and earn Platinum status which is worth 10 points. There's no limit to how many people can earn Gold or Platinum, but only one person will be able to transcend space and time and achievement the ultimate 15 points by being the first person to hit 1,000GS in a game. This is by a first come first earn basis, people added later on months to the league and have a faster time than someone previously that earned 15 points will not be honored. A full list of Platinum eligible games and the current holders of Gold and Platinum can be found here
Game Collections and Episodic Games
Same rules apply, you will get Gold (5 pts) if you reach at least 75% of the total game's GS. Platinum (10 pts) if you get all GS, and FTP (first to Plat) worth 15 pts. All episodes combined will count as a single game.
Example: Tell Me Why has 1,500GS
in order to get the Gold you need 1,125GS, and 1,500GS for the Plat
4. GAME COMPLETIONS
Here at Xbox university we stan a good completed achievement list, we might not get a fancy platinum trophy like on other platforms but we can rest easy knowing Phil is smiling down upon us. Most importantly though we can earn some juicy scrumptious points in this achievement league, what is better than that? We also recognized not all achievements are equal, and yes 5 minutes 1k GS games are fun and all, but we gotta recognize the gamers that put blood, sweat, and tears into their craft. So get ready for another chart of goodness. Game completions will be awarded points based on TA ratios, how fun!
|10 and up||10|
Much like achievements we need a sample size of at least 1,000 players to keep things fair, unlike achievements though we will honor you completion if said game hits 1,000 players during the season and the TA ratio will be added and based on the month in which that is achieved. DLC and Title completions are also rewarded with the same guidelines.
