Viral Month 2014 Update

By Michelle Balsan, 1 year ago
Hello TAers!

We just wanted to take a quick break from Viral Month to give you an update on how it's going so far

By heading over here, you can see not only the achievements that are part of viral month, but the change in their ratio since the event began. To date, only one achievement, Team 2K in NBA 2K9 has suffered a blow to its ratio. When you consider, however, just how many ratios shot up with new registrations in the wake of the TrueAchievements App launching, it's quite a feat that many of them have not gone up in ratio at all!

We also have some other stats to share, all of which are current as of this writing:

Number of TA'ers who have registered to host sessions - 540
Number of TA'ers who have joined sessions - 1184
Number of sessions created to date (this includes session through the end of the week) - 664
Total Virals Passed (includes only those Virals passed during Viral Month sessions) - 2,394
Total TrueAchievement Score Unlocked - 90,182
That's a whole lot of Virals!

Viral Month isn't over, however, and we're still pushing to be even germier! While there is a need for people to pass any of the Virals listed above, there are some games where we have a shortage of hosts, most notably the 2K games. If you have any of the following achievements and some time to help out your fellow gamer, please register to be a host by heading here!

For those of you registered already, thank you so much for your help thus far! Please take a moment to check your registration details to update your availability so we can keep sessions running as smoothly as possible. If you earned an achievement during Viral Month, why not register as a host so you can pass it along?

We want to thank you all for making Viral Month such a success, and we still have ten days to go! Without so many of you volunteering to give some time to help others, these achievements would all remain locked for so many. Let's keep spreading the Virus!
