Steam Achievements - (Request for input)

22 posts in this topic

As everyone knows we're headed to a release on Steam.  We in the Community Development (Commdev) Team have some pretty good ideas for the initial set of 'achievements' to port over / create as 'Steam Achievements'. We also would like to include your input in the initial achievement set, so in this thread please post what you would like to see as a Steam Achievement for WWII Online.  

Some things already being looked at (and this isn't all encompassing):

Side loyalty for X period (both consecutive campaigns as well as physical time (aka years))

1st kills, developer (Rat) kills, X# of kills

'Ace' (5 kill) missions

Milestones (to be determined, but will be harder to achieve (example 10k kills, 10k captures, 100k Kills etc, X # of sorties as same unit)

Played all units, best K/D, worst K/D, etc... 

Please be as descriptive as possible when posting - it will make it easier for us to implement the achievement.   Thanks for your help.   

 

--PS - if your idea doesn't get used - it doesn't mean it's bad... just wasn't workable at the time (but maybe usable in the future) - no idea is bad.

Shortest average time on mission.

Or, more seriously: highest average number of kills per mission-hour, i.e. total number of kills divided by total number of mission hours.

Quote

Side loyalty for X period

OK, fine, but a willingness to switch sides may be good from a game management perspective.

How about closest to equal total mission times on the two sides?

Or, greatest percentage of total mission time on the underpop side.

jwilly: I think you mix up achievements with medals. On steam ALL players can get the same achievements.

 

Anyhow, there are so many we can have so not putting the obvious here, like "first tank kill with ATG" and "first plane kill with AA-gun" etc...

Also: Most suggested below can have "levels" (-> harder to achieve)

 

Some Achievements I want to suggest:

  • Noobs revenge - 1st kill of an enemy player EVER (I know this is on the list, but just want this one to be made with humoristic title)
  • Wojtek (the Bear) Achievement - Re-supply a friendly player with ammo
  • Master of deployment - Create a FMS/FRU where more than 100 spawns into world are made (or 50 for bronze, 100 silver, 150 for gold)
  • Where Eagles Dare - As infantry/para cause damage on a enemy factory where "ORIGIN" is further away than 100km
  • Do not Disturb - Kill an enemy infantry player with a knife
  • Defensive Eagle - Kill an enemy tank as para unit
  • Attack Eagle - Capture the target on mission (here it helps if mission leader/creator sets a depot as target)
  • Saviour of Tables - Re-Capture an AB in a friendly town before the town changes ownership
  • Maker of P1 - Capture a linking depot in an enemy town (so called spawnable).
  • Birdie Klonk [picture of Pigeon laying an egg, mid-air] - Kill an enemy tank with a plane, and get a RTB
  • Eagle Mail - Cause damage on an enemy factory with a plane, and get a RTB
  • Purple heart - Get RTB after being hit (inf/crew bleeding)
  • Fat [censored] - Get a lift for more than 3km (truck/tank) or more than 6km (fairmile/destroyer)
  • I Bobbed the truck - Kill all passengers when driving a truck

Hope the above is somewhat "on key" of what you are thinking. Tried to make most of them "possible" with current game, but realize last two need some coding to track distances of players. Like a marker for "player entered truck", "player disembarked truck", "player died in truck, and no hits from enemy".

Since I mostly fly bombers.........here is my list for awards, in no particular order

RTBs in a campaign

highest RTB Percentage (perhaps reward top 3 per campaign)

kill to death ratio for ALL deaths, which would penalize suicide bombing and noobs flying into trees)

award for 15 kill mission, 25 kill mission 

in my old squad I used to award most kills on trucks, armored, boats, aaa guns at guns, and infantry.

Rdp missions, 10, 20, 30 per campaign

Rdp missions w RTB 10 20 30

 Dedicated bomber awards, most time on missions, missions created etc

More suggestions:

Trucker Union (Min set time as trucker)
Trucker Leader
Trucker Boss

Postman  - For delivering supplies to AA/ATG/tanks, certain amount (will need add code in game)

Sgt York - For destroying 3 units in 10 seconds

Dedicated - 6th longest time game in in campaign
Soft core - 5th longest time game in in campaign
Hard core  - 4th longest time
Insane - 3ed
No Life -  2nd
Puppet Master (TM) - so much time in game must be a computer program.  "Ghost in the Shell" reference

AirGunner: Bomber crew that shot down EA (He 111, Ju 87B, Blen IV, Ju 53 (both)).  If the game can track if the gunner shot down the EA, then all aircraft with turrets can do it.

Last call for ideas - I'm building the list this week... 

Campaign specific stuff will probably not make it into this cut mostly because they would have to be rebuilt each campaign, and resources are scarce. 

 

However there is a good (ok great) chance they'll make it into CSR at some point 'soon'

Highest net points per mission.

Net points = points earned for killing stuff - points lost (if your unit is killed).  This indicates the relative value of what you killed vs what you lost getting those kills.  Someone who kills 5 AFV with one infantry is much more efficient and skilled than someone who kills 5 inf with one AFV, even though the KD ratios are the same. 

This is important stat IMHO.  If you have a high KD based on using armor to kill infantry, the net points per mission could be negative.  e.g; 5 inf kills = 5 points, but you were killed and lost a unit worth 10 points, for a net points mission of -5.  Conversely if you kill 5 Pans with an ATR and die, your net points would be something like 5x25 points killed minus 10 points for being killed for a net points/mission of 12.5.  

I am not sure the point values are correct, but you get the idea.

Bombers Total tons/kg/etc. dropped on enemy factories.

Bombers Total tons/kg/etc. that hit and damage factories.

Some efficiency number determined by bombs dropped on factory and bombs dropped that actually cause damage.

Please don't forget resupply numbers of some kind to entice playerbase to do manual resupply.

Escort Mission, Total bombers successfully escorted to and from factory with successful RTB of bombers and self.

Escort Mission, Total EA shot down during Escort Missions to and from factory.

Number of FMS destoyed needs to be a stat and then a milestone for hitting so many, such as attack stopper, bunker buster, etc

Some great ideas.  I can't stress how important it would be for players who bomb factories and drive vehicles to help with resupply/transport/tow to get recognition.  Maybe under their names in the forums they get different colored badges for how many missions completed kind of like the Germans did, put where their sig would be, or of course new sections added to a stat page.  The stat page being easily accessible via the main wwiionline webpage.

Perhaps even the #1 player for each different section of stats get a free month of the game, or even half off for the month.

Im very new to the game, like havn't actually gotten to play yet kinda new. So I don't want to give any good ideas for "what" has to be done for an achievement. However I could give good movie/game/history quotes that people could fill in these quotes a bit! But Ill throw in my 2 cents ;)

"Covering Fire!" -  for assist kills?

"Earn this..." - being the last survivor in your squad to take a town?

"Angels on our Soldiers" - Anti-Tank from the Air?

"Be not Thou far from me, O lord" - get so many kills with the sniper class?

"Old soldiers never die..." - for the people who played before the Steam release!

"I have seen war... I hate war" - play Battleground Europe for a certain length of time?

"We would rather die on our feet than live on our knees!" - Die a certain number of times?

"Nice chap, no General." - kill X rank 5 soldiers? Or Xoom!

"Without ships, we cannot live." - an achievment for the Navy boys!

"They sowed the wind, now they'll reap the whirlwind!" - X air vs air wins?

"Fuehrer, we are on the march!" - take control of X towns in 1 session?

"Bawnjorno!" - an American troop helping a french troop somehow?

"We're in the killin' [censored] bussiness" - idk, just love this movie.

"We're supposed to be surrounded" - be a paratrooper X times.

I could probably keep going, but I'm tierd. Hope you guys like 'em, this was fun.

Some of these have probably been already suggested, but in the hope that there is something useful here:

 - Achievement for first mobile spawn deployed (and 5th, 10th or whatever, same for all the below suggestions)
 - Achievement for first mobile spawn destroyed
 - Achievements based on number of spawns from mobile spawn
 - Achievement for first capture 
 - Achievements for depot defense by minutes defending
 - Achievements for kills while defending
 - Achievements for kills while assaulting a CP
 - Achievements for multi-crewing a vehicle (there should be an acheivement for just multicrewing, not related to what you do while multicrewed).
 - Achievements for FB damage
 - Achievements for FB defense (damage to sapper/other units within X meters of FB structures)
 - Achievement for landing a plane without damage (say you could re-take off)
 - Achievements for creating a missions
 - Achievements based on mission spawns
 - Achievements for participating in a town capture (were spawned in, had kills, captured something... some of all of these criteria - could be tweaked)
 - Achievements for participating in a town defense (possible criteria as above)
 - Kill mission leader achievement
 - Kill HC achievement
 - Multiple sequential kills on same guy achievement
 - Achievements based on number of (meaningful) sorties
 - Paratrooper achievement - successful drop
 - Paratrooper pilot achievement - drop paras successfully
 - Return your kit: RTB based achievements
