    Achievements

    Hi everyone,

    I downloaded and tested the game yesterday and so far I really loved it. Without having seen all units yet I don't want to discuss mechanics yet. But I found the achievement system could use some improvement. To me the current achievements are pretty dull (achieve a number in something). I'd prefer some achievements that directly tie to what you do ingame. Like "fell a full strength unit with the thrashers special ability", "fell 2(3?) units simultaneously with the warbirds special", "overkill a unit by at least 10 damage" etc. Surely such achievements are more fun to hunt than playing normally until you suddenly get notified for winning the hundreds time.

    There are a number of steps that will be done for achievements.

    1. Hooking them up to steam so they show in the profile
    2. Adding more new and awesome achievements
    3. In game building to view achievements
    4. Feature to sew achievements into in-game banner to show to players

    There was a suggest an achievement thread during beta, and the testers know where you're coming from! It's coming, will just be a bit of a wait.

    I don't know if it's readable for everyone, but the beta thread on this was here if you want to take a look-see.

    You'll surely not getting it that easy - concerning the 2000 elo achievement, which is huge
    If you don't know where to put it - put it in the pillage

    The simple achievements are in there because they were easy to implement (they run on numbers already in the game). Stoic has expressed intent to add more varied achievements once they can code in some more stuff. Right now, though, their focus is on calming the stormy network seas, and after that, will probably be on rank 2 and 3 units and banners, so it might be a little while.

    Xandos--I'm not sure what you mean here, but the idea behind Factions is for it to be an ever-evolving game; never completed, because always being improved.
