Two days until we can once again seek liberation through madness.

Two...whole...days.

Then again, that will give me time to stock up on fine German beer. :)

Of course, the first glass will be a toast to Beanpotter, the Chief Architect of Insanity. toast

How will DLC factor in?

i.e. If I pop 1 achievement on a game pass game that has DLC, will the competition include/count all the DLC achievements when calculating my completion percentage?

What about for games I don't have DLC access to?

Would I have to pop 1 achievement in each DLC segment/pack to include them in the dive?

I'm not sure I want to add games to my dive if I know up front that a chunk of the completion % for that game is automatically off the table/behind an additional "pay wall" if you will.

One achievement in the title dlc or not is generally fine, it doesn't include DLC separately of the main game.

IIRC the % removed is still based on your settings

Yeah, it depends on your settings. If you include all DLC then it will count all achievements. If you already have an achievement in a game, adding an achievement from a DLC pack will not add that DLC to your Dive.

Everything is downloaded and queued up ready to go. Time to grab some dinner and start the dive at 10pm my time in four and a half hours time.

The good thing about failing to recover the last 2 years worth of dives is that the percentage shouldn't drop as drastically this year. So to counter that I'm going big and diving 200 games!

All downloaded and ready to go although I've foolishly agreed to do some work tonight which is going to take me a couple of hours but hopefully I'll still be able to pop a couple of achievements whilst i'm "working"

This is my favorite event of the year. I started the month at 97.2% and my goal is to drop below 90%. dive
