I'd like to propose the new concept of 'TrueAchievement Titles'

There's been a lot of debating and suggestions about all the aspects of this idea, and I thank everyone who has offered their support

As it currently stands, this idea is to have a 'Title' or group of titles for each Sub-Genre and Flag that can be unlocked by any TA member through the accumulation of TrueAchievement Score in certain Genres or by unlocking a certain amount of flag achievements.
(There has been other ideas for Titles unlocked by completing certain games in a series and ideas for Titles unlocked by having certain TA Badges etc, these ideas have been put on hold until the Genre and Flag Titles have been dealt with).

Rich Stone aka TrueAchievement presented me with a spreadsheet and as a community we came up with '160' Genre Titles and '28' Flag Titles and established the criteria for unlocking them.

This would not, I repeat not, be the same as 360voice or gamertag nation etc, we are not proposing a new badge system. Each individual on TA will have the option to display one single Title on their homepage and gamercard to show their most favoured Title. These would be chosen by the individual from all the potential Titles they have unlocked.

We had some visual concepts from various contributors as to what the Titles may look like:

Here is an idea as to what the Titles may look like on Homepages:

Obviously these are just some examples I cooked up on the spot but I'm sure with more thought and professional input we could come up with some great looking ideas.

I should note also that if anyone has fulfilled the criteria for multiple Titles they could then choose the one that they felt expressed or exemplified themselves the best and only that one Title would be displayed.

How about this; We could use the current colour identifications of Badges to indicate the tier of each Title. In most cases we have three tiers for each sub-genre Title and TA have ten Badge colours. So we take the highest three (or five etc) colours for the tiers. TA could make this look a lot better in the final design but it would look something like this:

This is a re-cap I posted to help peeps get a better idea of how far things had developed: TrueAchievement Titles

After a few months of various discussions we semi-settled on these Titles:
SPORTS
TrueAchievement Titles
ACTION AND ADVENTURE
TrueAchievement Titles
MINIGAMES
TrueAchievement Titles
MISCELLANEOUS
TrueAchievement Titles
SHOOTERS
TrueAchievement Titles

These are not set in stone but there has been an incredible amount of debate about various types of Titles we could and could not have. However if you have any suggestions please comment or just show your support with an upvote.

I like it too. Could be shown just under our gamertags in the forums and t the right of our gamertags on our pages.

I think the titles could be more fun and creative - in a way that people have to guess what it stands for (hovering over the name will show a description).

Do TA even differ who's host when it comes to votes? I'm not sure it does, but would be a nice addition if not. Or at least nice to know if it's already ongoing.

I'd vote for these names...

Not a fanboi! (connected TA and TT profiles)
Perfectionist (99% completionist with over 30 games)
Patience is a virtue (lot of grinding achievements)
Partypooper (bad rep in hosting sessions)
Keeps the party going (good rep in sessions)


Not sure I can go on, but you guys get the gist of where I am going.

Of course some of those could be tweaked in the OP.

This sounds really cool. I think it would awesome to implement something like this into TA. Hopefully they see this and consider it.

I think you'd have to scale some of the rewards, since I don't think we have near enough 100 survival-horror games to justify 100 games for a title, where as FPS games we have an abundance of. But other than that it does sound like a good idea if done right.

Otherwise I'd back this idea.
I do like it when the red stuff comes out.

Yeah I like these suggestions, obviously some of the figures I've suggested could do with a tweak, but I think the general idea is doable and very appealing. I wouldn't want them to clutter up profiles and forums as I like the clean and clear outlay of TA so these could be simple nicknames in black writing under our gamerpics for example, and they could be optional.
I agree on the point about clutter, but I'm not a big fan of having text under our GPs. Maybe if they were badges we could put in our trophy case instead? That sounds good to me.

Would be confusing. It has no place in the trophy case in my opinion.

Sounds a little like 360voice. Not that I dislike the idea, it just seems like copying something from over there.

You can't do nothing to a website, a game or a movie without being able to point fingers saying it's taken from there.

Of course it might be an idea based on an inspiration from another website, but is that such a problem?

So no, it's not a problem. It could be a problem if people just copy things from others that are representing that thing. As an example: Assassin's Creed. They had their inspiration from historical facts, boiled it in a soup of other Action/Adventure games and created their own franchise. What they did add were the Templars and the Assassin's with their infamous Hidden Blade. If people would like to do the same, they can't just copy/paste the same thing into another game and keep the weapon representing the series.

The titles Rockstar and [put in genre here] Veteran are already over there, so in my opinion it would be wrong to keep it the same when applying on TA. Again, I don't dislike the idea; it just needs to be thought over a lot more.

We still do not have a forum badge for walkthroughs.

This is a good idea though.

Yes I do believe a similar concept has been implemented in other websites and even games. I do recall, for example, in Fable 2 or it might have been 3 where you could buy a title from the town crier based on an accomplishment or your notoriety and the people would then refer to you as that title. I really liked this idea but like I've said I wouldn't want it to be mandatory and plastered all over everybody's profile and forums. I for one have chosen to hide my history graph and twitter feed from my homepage, so you could also choose to hide your Title/s.

It should be an optional nickname displayed in written form or maybe a badge (but I'd prefer it written) on your profile page and perhaps somewhere near your collection of identifications here at the left of me now.

Indeed we at TrueAchievements should have our own take on this idea, maybe Titles specifically called TA Titles as in 'True FPS Veteran' or 'True Completionist' (with the criteria for earning such yet to be determined. smile

Any more ideas on the TA twist we could implement?

I like the idea, especially some kind of ranking system.

That is because the badge was introduced later than the others. Probably some forgetfulness

Have something like TA Conversationalist for a certain forum badge. Or Mr. Talkative for a certain rank in the comment badge. Every single badge should definitely have a title associated with it. Sign up badge titles would be really cool because, obviously, once that year is done, nobody else can earn it.

On the completionist title in relationship to percentage. I think anything 90%+ with 20KGS is significant to call yourself a completionist.

I've been working on 95% and just did some quick Excel math and it looks like I'd need to add & complete 34 new games (each with 50 achievements) in order to hit 95% without clawing through the 200 or so odd achievements I have left available to me.

If you're going to do titles, I think more weight should be on retail over XBLA & WP8. A flat 'titles' number is too easy with a WP8. I dunno... just a thought.
