@revision-voting I found an achievement for demotion that violates unwelcome concept number 7

AKA "Start the game"

Achievements obtainable with zero effort for no meaningful purpose (example: start the game as character X, collect one coin, watch a video). It's acceptable if there's something fun/historical/interesting you want to address.

edits are underlined :dengmini:

I do not agree with you. You will notice that I pushed my work until taking again elements of the real Pin Bot machine to create the achievements. As well as the use of completion names to make the "subtitles" of the samples used in the game (like "Now I see you", "Shoot for Solar Value" etc ..).

This achievement is just as difficult to win as "Find and collect a mushroom" in Super Mario Bros.

I find that my achievements are "fun" and / or "interesting I want to address".

freepoints is always fun. So I assume actually you know the game. You should at least make a rescore for the game, if you want, since it was never rescored to the new point system after the 400 point cap was removed.

As the voting stands currently for demotion:
Yes - 18
No - 3

I know nothing about the game other than I got 10 points in like 10 seconds for starting a game without actually playing.

Edit: The new scoring system if you didn't know:

I am no longer dev ... I can do nothing

could maybe be rescored to 1/0 points. I dont really see the issue with having some low hanging fruit as long as its not half of a set. But sadly I am also no longer dev and can do nothing.

voting is recently open to discord verified btw so you can vote against it as long as you are on discord, just click the reacts in #welcome

also demoting it would kill the retro ratio by like half and thats big gay for rpm

Slightly off-topic/wholly off-topic... How come you're not Dev anymore, Blaze?

Posted: 12 Jul, 2020 07:30
He let jltn dev on his account and they got caught/exposed

Justified punishment

Posted: 12 Jul, 2020 08:42
Blaze wouldn't be punished, if Jltn, and Euclide weren't retarded, he just trusted his friends too much and got banned till V2, so I think punishment's too harsh

For personal question use inbox. Please keep the game threads on-topic.

Pin Bot
400 > 415

A lot to cover here
Reach "Planets" increased to 10
First 2 increased to 5
The hardest achievements have been increased to 25
Some uncommon achievements like left explode and right explode moved to 10
Beat the Game decreased to 25

Regarding any of the posts above, don't see this revision as a chance to reignite said conversation. Please take suggestions, revision suggestions, demotion suggestions, promotion suggestions and rescore suggestions to #revision suggestions
