Viral Month Update

Viral Month Update

A new infection appears

Written by Matrarch on 25 October 12 at 13:48

As you all well know, there's been a real flurry of activity around TrueAchievements during the month of October. Not to be lost in all of that is the still on-going Viral Month which, with just about a week to go, is proving to be an even bigger success than the inaugural event.

Here to give you the latest stats and figures, as well as let you know of a new viral which arrived this month, is Community Events Team Manager, Chad and Jessie.

Hello Fellow TA’ers

It has been just over three weeks into the event and we’ve already surpassed the TA score gained and total achievements spread from a year ago. So far we’ve had over 850 sessions, over 1700 TA’ers participate, and over 650 TA’ers sign up to host sessions. I want to send out a HUGE thank you to everyone who has volunteered time to spread germs and to a special thanks to all the back-up hosts who have stepped in when needed to insure these sessions can happen.

We are heading into the last week of the event, so now is the time to sign up for Community Event Sessions and get those achievements you’re looking for before this event go back into the TA vault. If you wanting to host sessions, or host more sessions, make sure you sign up or edit your registration page are we are currently making session for the last 5 days of the event.

Recently, a new Viral Achievement appeared on the site and was added to the event.
007 LegendsSecret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in 007 Legends worth 25 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement
As of yet, we haven’t had anyone volunteer to host this achievement, so if you’re interested in spreading it make sure you add this one to your registration page and maybe we can get this one spread in the event these last few days.

Thanks again to all the gracious volunteers and let’s see if we can get to a total of 6,000 infectious achievements spread.

I'd definitely consider adding a few Fable achievements to the next Viral Month. I just completed Fable II and finding all the dolls and getting hold of the chicken suit was a major pain. I know a session that could pass both of these achievements on would have been greatly appreciated and I'd definitely be up for hosting such a session in the next Viral Month if you decided to add them to the list. There's a lot of people out there still looking for these achievements to this day, so for them I'd just ask that you at least consider it.

I got almost all of the virals available to me early in the month - I think there's only one left that I am able to get - and I really appreciate the efforts of all the hosts. I'll have to sign up as a host next time.

And I'd love a chance to get Dollcatcher and the chicken suit one in Fable 2. :)

I concur on the Fable 2 sentiment. I mean, I personally haven't gotten around to the game yet, but I read up on the achievements that require help now that the Fable 2 site is shut down and I'm not looking forward to it.

Just to let you know, I got infected this month with BRONCHITIS. Yes, BRONCHITIS. I rarely ever get sick, and this month I get a virus that makes me feel like I'm about to cough up a lung every 30 minutes, gives me the sweats so bad my clothes are drenched in a matter of a few hours, and I wheeze like I'm 90 years old and just ran 4 miles.

I blame TA.

Concerning Fable II, I've set up a session to help anyone needing The Dollcatcher and/or The Fowl Player. It's a few weeks from now but I'm just giving people more time to join so I can try and help as many people as possible.

For those of you who can't make an organized session, try talking to randoms near Bowerstone Market, for the most part they're helpful since I wouldn't have got these Achievements otherwise.

There was a guy (SoDFeaRItselF???) who did this when the game first came out. To be fair to him he must of served this cheevo up to about 100 people (at least) so i wouldn't even dream of asking him now. I would gladly help people with the Fable II dolls, but i haven't got the game disc anymore. I will endeavor to find a copy and at least pass my dolls onto somebody from TA.

The way these achievement are actually treated in the community can actually make them viral because its peoppe giving their weapon, clothes, and doll sets to one another and then either giving them back or passing them to another person.

Iknow this was ignored last time but why cant we come up with another themed eg one on racing were people take it in turns to wins races or shooter month, with games that have no lobby attendece and take it in turns getting most kills etc. loads of games out there with online achievements that can be shared and can be come a themed month. I know they can take longer but viral month is fun, hate waiting 12 months for the next one!!!!
