2017 Leaderboards - How Did You Do?

By Dave Horobin, 9 months ago
Hi TAers!

It's time for our look back at how everyone on the site performed during 2017.

Anyone that has listened to our End Of Year Review podcast (and if you haven't, you really should) will know that Rich had to put in some extra hours over the Christmas holiday to rewrite all of the annual leaderboard code to work with the new genre system. Unfortunately, that meant it's taken a little bit longer than usual to compile all the data.

You can find the base leaderboards here: Site Leaderboards for 2017.

We've included all the online achievements that everyone unlocked throughout the whole of 2017. Offline achievements could not be included as we couldn't be sure they were unlocked during the year.

Main Site Leaderboards

As with previous years, we've included leaderboards for TrueAchievements Score, Gamerscore, Achievements Won, Challenges Won and TA Difference. For the first time, we've also been able to include a Completed Games Leaderboard — this includes all the games finished during the year, irrespective of when you started them. As usual, you can change the completion DLC type from the Leaderboard Settings dropdown.

Special Leaderboards

This year, we've also included special leaderboards for ID@Xbox games, Kinect Required games and Xbox Live Arcade games.

The main leaderboards linked from the 2017 Leaderboards page default to the TrueAchievements score leaderboard, but there are also leaderboards linked in the right-hand side panel for everything from Gamerscore to the number of completed games.

Filtering the 2017 Leaderboards

The leaderboard pages have all your usual TA filtering options, allowing you to filter by platform, genre, region and area! You can also easily find your position on the board by clicking the Find Me button. It will take you to the page and scroll down automatically to show your position in all of its glory. Click the Friends only option to show just you and your buddies.

Share Your Positions

If I came first in the 2017 European GamerScore Leaderboard for Xbox One American Football Games I'd certainly want to show it off to the world (#GoPackGo), and we've made that as simple as possible too. Once you've used the Find Me button, click the share icon next to your position to be shown the share panel:

From here you can share on Facebook, Twitter, other social sites and email. The shares look pretty cool and link through directly to the correct leaderboard and position:

We'll be sending you a PM over the next couple of days containing some of your most impressive leaderboard positions.

Let us know in the comments on which leaderboard you managed to achieve your highest position. Do you think you can do even better in 2018?
