Final Stats

With hundreds of potential games in the contest, we were interested in which ones featured the most. Out of a mix of five Xbox 360 and five Xbox One titles, Hexic HD took the top spot with a difference of 120 chosen achievements!

With Hexic HD taking the top spot in the previous graph, it was no secret that it would appear on this one too. However, it surprised us by taking not one or two, but six of the top 10 most chosen achievement places!

Yet again, Hexic HD took the top spot but there was a bit more variety with the other titles present, which means that many of our competitors probably found the game's achievements as difficult as I did when I went back to it.

In total a little over 34,000 total achievements used throughout the contest, we took a look at the ratio split between them. Over 16,000 were between 1.0 and 1.5, while just over 1,000 had a ratio of 5.0 or higher.

In total there were 3,404 chances for gamers to unlock all 20 of the randomly chosen achievements, a feat that only occured 109 times in the entire contest.

In week one of the contest 402 gamers didn't unlock any of the 20 randomly chosen achievements. This only happened a further 131 times in the remaining 10 weeks.

Following on from the above, we had a total of 447 uncontested matches out of 1,659, where one of the gamers in the pairing didn't manage to unlock an achievement.

The overall response to the UHH has been amazingly positive, so thank you to the almost 2,000 of you that registered to take part and helped make it such a success, and a special mention to Freamwhole who came to us with the original idea.
