My 2018 results are in! (ANALYSIS)
This has been a whirlwind year for me as a (now former) achievement hunter. I decided to go for it. I set a handful of yearly goals for 2018 and knocked them all out in 10 and a half months (100,000 in a year and 300,000 GS). So I decided since this was my last hardcore year to go for it and see what stuck. Below is my results and some analysis. I did some research because my write-up didn't hit all of what I did. I also don't pay too much attention to TA, but more on Gamerscore, so most of these will be GS focused. I will start with my home state of West Virginia, then USA, then World rank.
I love numbers and stats so this is actually a lot of fun for me to do.
West Virginia Rankings:
Overall - 1st
This was the goal I had to keep a gag order on until now, just in case. This was my #1 ranking goal. There are a hell of a lot of excellent players in this state. Don't be fooled. Now I will hand the baton over to the rest of you. I know you will represent WV well. I have zero plans to defend.
Also 1st in the state in the following genres:
Action, Arcade Racing, Beat 'em Ups, Equestrian (4 way tie, good job to the others
), Fighting, Football (Soccer), Party, Pinball, Platformer, Puzzle, Racing, Run & Gun, Shoot 'em ups, Sports
Again, we have a hotbed of talent and I am very proud of all of the gamers and here's to a great 2019 guys.
United States - National Rankings:
Before I delve into my National and World rankings for the year, I wanted to say I was blown away at the level of play that everybody displayed in 2018. Just wow.
Almost 400k GS in a year. Almost 400 completions in a year. I don't curse too much but holy s**t! I will say this, though. I am humble and proud to play with such great and friendly competition, no matter the ranking. This sounds goofy, but I love you all. Enough mushy crap, here are my national rankings.
Overall - 61st (Just wow! I can't believe I am in the same part of the standings as some of these players. I look up to some of those names (which I won't name drop) so much. I feel like I am not worthy. LOL)
Action - 32nd
Arcade Racing - 12th
Equestrian - T-12 (with A LOT of people)
Fighting - 60th
Party - 97th
Pinball - 2nd (Big shock here)
Platformer - 91st
Puzzle - 55th
Racing - 15th
Shoot 'em ups - 20th
Soccer (Football) - 32nd
Sports- 50th (very unexpected)
The World Rankings
Overall - 169th (Again, against this level of talent I am speechless. Although, I will be a touch narcissist and say I was hoping to be in the top 200 at least.
Action - 111th
Arcade Racing - 93rd
Fighting - 174th
Party - 196th
Pinball- 5th (One word. Wow.)
Platformer - 300th
Puzzle - 146th
Racing - 158th
Shoot 'em Ups - 65th
Soccer (Football) - 210th
Sports - 167th
2018 GS - 165,577
2018 TA- 236,171 (off year for me)
2018 Completions - 102
9 - # of consecutive months in 2018 with 10k or more Gamerscore
Highest GS in one month - 25,280 (Dec. 2018)
Highest # of completions in one month - 17 (Dec. 2018)
# of achievements in 2018 - 3,933
# of achievements in a month - 478 (Sept. 2018)
Whew! That was a lot of information. Anyways I hope you had a great 2018 and I wish you a great 2019.
