Another event that I'll somehow fail laugh

I seriously do love this idea. Thanks Freamwhole, planting42 and the rest of the TA staff that brought this idea to life!

Good contest, but they may want to change the wording to 'Once you register, you will have a letter box when the challenge begins on June 1st'

I should have a high potential for easy achievements in each letter, I think. Haven't looked, but I'll keep myself in suspense.
Yes, I know I am.

I'm expecting to muck this up accidentally laugh
Would I have to start over if I mess the order up or just start from my last letter again?

You cannot muck it up, other than not getting all 26.
You are always looking for the next letter in the alphabet.
If you need a "D" and get an "F" it doesn't matter, you just cannot use that "F" later on.

Scoping out my backlog and am having a tough time finding some x achievements and z achievements. Anyone know of any off the top of their heads?

Is there a way now to search (in started games first, and then in the game collection) for achievements for a particular letter ?
I want to plan the first few letters.
Welcome to TA, where stats are made up and some achievements do not matter.

So if I get A tomorrow then get G tomorrow that messes it up or does it only mess up if it's the next day?

That's cheating, you only have 10 hours to wait until you can click the link smile

You don't have to do one a day, you can do all 26 on day 1 if you like. And you can't mess it up, you can earn as many achievements in between each letter as you like.

This seems like a lot of fun!
What about 'Secret Achievements' that once unlocked have an achievement title with the letter we need.

Do those count? (Sorry if this was clarified somewhere and I missed it)

Another great idea for a new event! clap

I assume we don't need to wait for the site to scan in a letter before we move on to the next one? For example, if I'm on the letter C, and then I unlock C, D, and E in the space of a few minutes, I assume that all of those will count, and the next time I'm scanned, it will show me on F? I don't have to wait for the site to register the C achievement before unlocking the D one, right?

Good news for those of us starting Sunset Overdrive for the TA Playlist next month.... that game has achievements for every letter except J, K, Q, X, Y, and Z. I don't know how many of those can be unlocked in alphabetical order, but hopefully there will be some opportunity to overlap!

I was wondering the same thing, my TA pro expired and I don't want to wait for the site to scan me to go to the next letter...

This actually sounds fun. I have over 100 games sitting on my hard drive, so I might have a chance at this. Just depends on the douche letters, like J, X, Q and Z.
Bah Humbug.

Oh yeah!
Not sure why I didn't think like that earlier, I blame a long day at work sleep

Quick Question: What about achievements that the first character is a symbol (for example: parenthesis, single & double quotes) but the next character is the letter "A" how would this be counted? What about numbers?

See examples below:

WRC 5"Around the World"St Tony22The "Around the World" achievement in WRC 5 worth 80 pointsFinish at least one Special Stage in each rally in Quick Stage mode.


Just Cause 3(Just) Causin' ChaosSt Tony22The (Just) Causin' Chaos achievement in Just Cause 3 worth 10 pointsGet 1000 Chaos.
