Skip this if your not interested in back story:
First I thought I would introduce myself a little. I have been following these forums for over a month now and am very excited about this game. I have always enjoyed GalCiv 1 & 2, civ 4 and other stratergy games. So I have pre ordered and counting down the days to release day.
Now I dont have anything to play at the moment so I'm constantly switching between DemiGod, Dota and L4D. I'm finding that I'm not playing dota as much, not because of its dated graphics, but because there is no Achievement system!
I can play all day and there is no record that I have even touched the game. L4D tracks my time played and I can go for new achievements, DemiGod tracks game stats and now started tracking achievements aswell.
Now I was playing WoW when they released the achievement system, and i thought to myself, what a stupid way to waste your time. However once it was released I found it to be just not bad but actually quite fun if you were in the mood for it.
Start reading from here.
So back to Elemental, I think there should be an (online) achievement system, sorry if this has been suggested I couldn't find it.
Example achievements could be:
- Play a 1v1 against a nightmare AI.
- Play through a game and never use a spell from your channerler.
- Never let your trade routes get attacked.
- Never loose one of your towns.
- Have over 100 bear calvalry in a single game.
I think that they could be added as the game progresses. Possibly even mod-specific ones. Just an idea to pro-long the enjoyment of the game.
