The TrueAchievements Twelve Days of Christmas Challenge Returns for 2019
If you've been jonesing for a new Community Challenge and another profile badge to go along with it, we've got good news – the TrueAchievements Twelve Days of Christmas Challenge is returning for 2019 – and it's starting this Monday, December 2nd.

TrueAchievements 12 days of christmas

What is The Twelve Days of Christmas 2019 Community Challenge?
Each day starting from Monday, December 2nd through to Friday, December 13th, the TA Community and Events team are going to reveal a new challenge at 10:00am UTC. The mini challenges will involve unlocking certain types of achievements – for example unlocks from a certain genre, or achievements that have a certain flag or gamerscore value. Each consecutive challenge will require one more achievement to be unlocked than the last, just like the Christmas carol. You can keep track of each new daily challenge by checking the news story on the TA homepage, or by checking the event hub once the challenge is live.

To make things a little easier, you have until the end of December to complete the full set of 12 challenges – you don't have to complete them on the day they come out. You also don't need to worry about other unrelated achievements you unlock on the way to completing a certain challenge – you won't break your challenge streak by unlocking something that doesn't meet the requirements. However, you do have to complete each challenge in order to unlock the next one – achievements won't count towards the challenge for Day 8, for example, if you have only completed up to Day 4.

Once you've registered for the event you will find a panel on your homepage that will always display the current challenge you are working on. Underneath will be a link to all of the locked achievements in your Game Collection that could satisfy the current requirement.

How to Register for The Twelve Days of Christmas Community Challenge

Registration for the Twelve Days of Christmas Community Challenge is now open!

Just head over to the Twelve Days of Christmas hub and hit the "Register now" button on the right-hand side of the page to join in.

Players can continue registering throughout the event but all of the daily challenges must be completed by 01:00am UTC on January 1st for them to count.

Is There a Prize?
Everyone who manages to complete the entire list of challenges before January 1st at 01:00am UTC will get a Community Challenge badge on their profile (or a colour upgrade to the existing badge, for those that have participated in our challenges in the past).

Welcome to the brand new TrueAchievements website!
As you may have seen, last week we created a private beta for our new responsive website.

That beta has now ended and we are delighted to have just put the new site live for everyone to use!

The new responsive site replaces the previous separate sites for desktop and mobile. It's faster, cleaner and lighter, but contains all of the desktop features that our members use the most, no matter what screen size you are using.

We've taken this opportunity to redesign some of the key pages to make them easier to use and also more visually appealing. And we've also added some brand new features, including a Gamer Menu, new Notifications system, emoji support in friend feed comments, and better game comparison options.

Before you go any further, we recommend you read the following two articles:

Thanks to all of the staff and Pro users that have been testing the site over the last month or so, we couldn't have done without your help!

Announcing the Private Beta for the Brand New TrueAchievements Website
You may have noticed a lack of major site updates over the last 6 months or so - that's because the TGN Development Team has been working hard on a complete rewrite of the TrueAchievements website.

Up until now we've had two versions of the site - one for mobile users and one for desktop. The mobile version, while fast and light, is missing the vast majority of the functionality of the desktop site.

We are going to be replacing those two sites with a single responsive site that works across all devices and screen sizes, and that contains all of the existing desktop functionality. This means you will no longer need to use the desktop view on your mobile just to use the site properly.

We've taken this opportunity to redesign many of the main site pages - every single page and control has been rewritten, resulting in a much cleaner, faster site:

New responsive game page - light themeNew responsive game page - light theme
New responsive gamer page - dark themeNew responsive gamer page - dark theme
New responsive achievement page - various themesNew responsive achievement page - various themes
New responsive forums - light themeNew responsive forums - light theme


We've even added several new features - including our new notifications system and our Gamer Menu, which you can see in action by playing this video:



The Beta has been tested by many of our volunteer staff over the last few weeks, and we are now ready to launch the new site to our Pro Account holders.

Pro Account holders can now access the beta from this link. If you have a Pro Account and cannot access this page, please log out of TA and then back in to see it. If you don't have a Pro Account and would like to take part, you can upgrade your account here.

You can also flip back to the original site from that link at any time.

Note: While we have tested the site as much as we can, given the thousands of controls that have changed and the number of different devices that the site will be running on, you may well find some issues. If you do, please post about them in this thread.

We'll be launching the responsive site to the public as soon as we are completely happy with this final testing phase.
