I just acquired two new achievements regarding Heralds of Chaos. I personally feel like this is fantastic news. More relation of Gaia Interactive with Gaia Online is always a plus, but enabling a sense of competition against the community to earn these achievements is what I like best about this. Hopefully this can be expanded into zOMG, fishing, and ticket games too eventually. But for right now, I'm just really happy we finally have achievements regarding boasting your competitive edge.
:edit: Needs to be highly regarded that users want achievements directed toward CPU opponents too.
This would be so cool!
You know what would be great?
If they added a few achievements in zOMG that aren't currently in the badge system.
I could probably find out but that kind of information is usually kept secret because we like keeping it a surprise.
While the achievements are at it's basics as far as I can tell "determines how many wins", it'd be really neat if you guys could include ones that are granted by beating the game in so many moves, or not losing any of your crew. I've always liked challenges.
