Introducing The TrueAchievements 10th Birthday Community Challenge

By Dave Horobin, 9 months ago
TrueAchievements turns 10 years old next Wednesday, and to coincide with our weeklong celebration of a decade of TA, we're excited to announce that our third community challenge is starting right now! Titled the 10th Birthday Challenge, we're giving everyone that enters the chance to be a winner and earn another community challenge badge. That's not all! As a special birthday treat, we're also giving all of you the chance to win a month of TA Pro.

10th Birthday Challenge

What is the 10th Birthday Challenge?

The aim of the event is simple. Using the first letter of an achievement name, you have until April 8th to spell out the phrase "Happy Birthday TrueAchievements" in order (and you can ignore the spaces). You can, of course, unlock any achievements in-between each letter you are going for, but they won't count for a letter later on — they have to be earned in the correct order.

The contest begins right now, and to register all you need to do is head over to the 10th Birthday Challenge hub and hit the "Register Now" button on the right-hand side of the page.

The event ends on April 8th at 23:59 UTC. You can register at any time during the event. However, all achievements must be unlocked and scanned in by the end of April 8th for them to count.

While the event is running, you'll have a panel on your homepage that shows the current letter you are going for, and a link to view all your locked achievements that start with that particular letter:
10th Birthday Challenge

You can also see a list of all the achievements you've earned so far and the letters you still need by going to the event hub and clicking the Challenge List tab.

Which Achievements Count?

  • The achievements must be earned online and have a valid timestamp.
  • All achievements and challenges will count for all games and apps.
  • Achievements starting with a special character (such as those with ümlauts or tilde) do not count. Only those in the English alphabet are included.

Is There a Prize?

As with our previous community challenges, everyone can be a winner in the 10th Birthday Challenge. If you manage to complete the challenge and spell out "Happy Birthday TrueAchievements" in order by April 8th at 23:59 UTC, you'll receive a 10th Birthday Challenge badge that you can display proudly within the Completed Community Challenges section of your profile.

That's not all! As a special birthday treat, anyone who completes the challenge before 23:59 UTC on Wednesday, March 14th — the day of TA's 10th birthday — will receive a month of TA Pro.
