Estimated Game and DLC Completion Times

By Rich Stone, 2 years ago
It's Friday and that means it's time for us to put some new (and probably poorly tested) code up onto the site before the weekend! smile

TA is a community of gamers that generally like to complete their content, and also like to know how long new content takes to complete before they start it.

So we have created a way for you to store an approximate completion time for any content you have completed, and then for that information to be aggregated and shown on the appropriate game and DLC pages.

If you have completed any content and go to the new Completion Times page from your gamer menu, you'll see your completed content ordered by the most recently completed:

Games with DLC will be separated out into the main game and each individual DLC pack.

Choose the approximate time it took you to earn all the achievements in the content (ideally excluding time you spent doing any non achievement-related stuff).

As you change the value on the dropdowns the data is stored automatically.

Then on the game and DLC pages, you'll see a chart of the time bands and how many gamers estimated the completion for that band:

Obviously there's a lot more stuff we can do with this data and we intend to do some of that work next week, but I wanted to get this code up before the weekend and start collecting it as soon as we could.

Have a great weekend!
