and (?) will be maintaining the Achievement of the Week contest and weekly event.

Every Friday (7pm EST) the achievement and game will be revealed.

All users who complete the AotW (on Hardcore) will get a colored role in the Discord server for that week.
All winners of the AotW (on Hardcore) for that week will be entered into a random drawing to pick the next AotW. This drawing will occur around midnight EST on friday. People who win the AotW after the drawing will only obtain the role and points on the board. The same person can't pick the next AotW twice in a row, and a game can't be featured as an AotW within 4 weeks of its last appearance. If no response is given from the winner of the drawing, a poll will be held if there are more than 3 active AotW winners in Discord to decide between two games that are picked by RNG. If less than 3 active winners are available, RNG will decide.

Note: Loading saves to obtain AotWs that are vulnerable to loading a save will result in you not counting as having gotten the achievement for the contest.

will be maintaining a leaderboard for this weekly contest. 1 point is given for each AotW you complete on HARDCORE, and 0.5 points are given if you complete the achievement in SOFTCORE.

The same game twice in 24 weeks. Is that just the same game on the same platform or the same game across mulitple platforms?

It was idea making this rule to feature diversity and the time length was mine. To increase diversity if a game Like is an AotW, and could not be featured for 23 more weeks.

Do we post here to confirm our position on the leaderboard or is it all automatic?

There's no need to submit anything here. The achievements have time stamps and that's what we use.

I wasn't questioning the time scale and game choice. I was just getting clairification.

Oh man... I've been playing Pinball R&S since I was a young teenager and I haven't ever been able to get 1b, let alone 4b. Isn't this achievement a bit of a far stretch in just a week time?

Anyone willing to share pro tips? :D

The guy who chooses posted tips on Discord yesterday, if you ask him he prob will post again.
I reached 425 million only.

The most important upgrade to get is Pichu either from the slots or from the mart so your ball can never be lost in the gutter, and the only way you can lose a ball is if you mess up and let it fall between your flippers. Also try to keep your field multiplier as high as possible at all times to maximize your score, especially before entering bonuses. I was able to get over 4B with a single ball by getting Pichu early and focusing on maintaining an ultra/master ball. The Ruby table is much easier to maintain a high field multiplier as well since you have 2 ways to upgrade your ball, so it will likely be easier to get a higher score on that table.

You have to get the achievement on hardcore to receive a full point.
