    I'm going to wait until day 12 and then formulate a plan to take the path of least resistance through the fewest games that I can start and complete for the challenge.

    It would be a cool bonus to see who could use the fewest total games and/or achievements for completing the challenge.

    I don’t even know how to see our badges anymore since the new update... 😭😭
    They haven't moved. What do you use to browse the site?
    I just use safari on the iPhone to view the site. It doesn’t show me any badges on it anymore or any of the info that it used to.

    You may need to use Desktop mode to see the entire site if you use a mobile device.

    Here I was waiting for day 1's challenge, not realizing it started on the second. Well I guess I'll be able to figure it what I'm going to do while at work then!
    No God, know fear. Know God, no fear.

    I can see the badges but I have to turn my phone sideways. May work for you?

    I absolutely love this event, but please can you not do a challenge for playing specific platforms. Last year you had a challenge that required us to play backwards compatible games and I only have xbox one titles on my list, so I couldn't progress.
    Agreed.
    There are free ones even if you do not have games with gold or game pass. Seems like such a strange request to me.
  • Posted on 02 December 19 at 02:39Permalink
    I don't think we are saying to do away with the 360 achievements, maybe just not make it 360/backwards compat specific. Speaking for myself, I was stuck on the backwards compat challenge last year. I'm up for anything else though. Spelling, odd achievements, etc. I realize that there are only a few of us who play current gen only but its just a suggestion.

    Even if you're current gen only, you can download all gwg right from your xbox one... I'm so confused by this problem. If you don't want the downloaded to save space then just delete them. You would still own them as long as you have gold though.

    Everybody has there own way in which they game bro. I have chosen not to play x360 games on my account and I've met plenty of other people that do the same. It's not that I don't own any, I have plenty in fact, I just choose not to.
    Want a custom Gamerpic or Logo? Hit me up for further details.

    That is fair if that is your reason. I can respect that. Too each their own.

    That is your choice, doesn't mean that they need to take that into account though when you're in the severe minority that do that. More or less, your choice has consequences, deal with them or change your rule if you want to be able to participate in stuff like this. Complaining about it when it is your choice to do this is mind blowing though, I don't understand that at all.

    Firstly, I wasn't complaining about it, so you have completely misunderstood my suggestion as a complaint. Secondly, that challenge was/has been the only challenge to date that has been platform specific. Its no different than requesting a kinect related achievement or xbox one related achievement if you still only on the 360 (very unlikely, but still possible). Are you saying that these people should perhaps go buy a kinect/compatible console or upgrade to the xbox one in general if they just so happen to release a challenge for it?

    If participation in the challenge matters enough to them, then yes. Yes, they should smile

    No disrespect intended, as your request is a lot more reasonable and polite than a lot of the stuff I see in these forums, but if I signed up for a marathon and asked if the organisers could ensure that I wouldn't have to do any hills, or no running on roads, or that I could have a motorised scooter following me to give me a hand whenever I got a little tired, I would expect them to simply laugh in my face. It's the sheer sense of entitlement that makes me lol at this post laugh

    Look, I'm not here to argue about what should or shouldn't be added to the event because quite frankly, it's exhausting. I certainly do not believe that challenges should be made easier; that is definitely not what I am suggesting. I am always up for the challenge and always aim to complete games with higher TA scores, so that is definitely not my request. Its not a complaint. I get that it is my choice to play Xbox one only titles. I get why they would have added it last year. BC games are a big part of the consoles expanding library of games. I just wish they didn't make them platform specific.

    Okay, I can respect that - apologies for my vehemence toast
    I wasn't planning on jumping into the forums on any of this, but I guess the requirements changing for the first challenge have irked me more than I realised.
