At the start of the contest, we snapshot your TA Score, Gamerscore and Achievement counts. At the period roll we snapshot it again. Here's the math to determine the score:
TA score at start of contest - TA score at period roll = TA change
Gamerscore at start of contest - Gamerscore at period roll = Gamerscore change.
TA difference is TA - GS so we then do that math (the TA change - the GS change)
This gives us the score for the period.

As the event takes these snapshots each period roll, all it does is compare the starting to the ending data to determine score. That means that its not just the achievements you unlock during the period that contribute to your score. As its still TA based, all your achievement score changes will play a part. Decay is harder to combat when you can't drop a Ratalaika though. If you have to overcome a 500 point deficit, it will take much more effort to dig yourself out of that hole. There's only so much Minecraft wink

Unreasonably psyched for this. Like I said last year, I wanted to give it all I had and leave it behind. If this had started in January, I'd be out. If it was TA score, I'd be out. But dammit planting, the combo of the 6-month break and intriguing new scoring was just enough. Now it's all I've been able to think about for the past month. Yeah I'm single, why do you ask?

TA Difference is a fair change and more in the "gamer spirit." You gotta work for it a little bit. The hardcore will remain unchanged, and it just wipes away some of the cheese factor from people like me. TheJuggyExp and I are looking for a teammate with sights set around Top 100 150 200 225 250.

Excited to get started on this!

Looking for one more teammate dedicated to earning every bonus that becomes available. Sights set on top-25. We're seriously casual, but hate to lose! 21+ only, but the older the better!

EDIT: Team is full. Let's get it on!

Acedawg4 and myself are looking for a third still. At least top 20 (usually top 10) five years running. We'll see if we got the chops for the new rules, but if interested hit me up here or on Xbox.

Woooo GTASC hype!! toast

Quick question shouldn’t overachiever badge be highest TA difference and not highest TA with this format? Otherwise there is a lot of spamming gamerscore if you have a chance to get the badge.

No stacking badges though, happy days!!

Anyone want to team up? Not worried about placing high, just don’t want to be paired with someone who doesn’t do much. Curious to see how far I could get.
Best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. Second best time is today.

I too am looking for a team. Would definitely like to find a team that will communicate and have fun with it. None of my regular Xbox friends are into hunting achievements lately.

Looking for a team as well! Currently on a 500+ day achievement streak and I have almost 700 games in my backlog. I also work at home so can always jump on to help if we’re behind!

Hi Everyone, this is my first contest on TA and would like to see if there are any other hunters that need another team mate to help with the hunt.

I am on for the most part on evenings and weekends EST. Feel free to send me a message on xbox live or TA.

Happy Hunting to all!

Prepared to be roasted ...

Is it possible to de-register & remove myself from Team contest. Too eager to sign up before realising I cannot commit to team portion. Do not want to be put into a team and be detrimental towards their progress.

I removed you from the unallocated players 'team' which is what is used to create the random teams. That *should* prevent you from being added to a team but I can't guarantee that. Only a dev can unregister a person.

Super excited to see it based on the TA difference. No more easy 1K completions to pad the scores. :D

I've got the team ready, haven't played for a few years (2015 I think?). Made it to the quarter finals for the teams that year and the semi for the individual. Don't have the time I used to have then, but we'll see how we go!
