and I will be maintaining the Achievement of the Week contest and weekly event.

Tomorrow at 10pm GMT (22h) / 6pm Eastern Time the first achievement and game will be revealed.

The first week's achievement will be decided by an RNG, and me checking that it's not a nonsense cheeve.

The first hardcore winner after the AotW is updated, weekly, will be able to decide the AotW the following week. If they are on Discord (https://discordapp.com/invite/TdfC3r7) they will get a winner role for the week as well. No user can be a winner twice in a 6 week period, and so if someone does win twice in that period it will go to the second, and so on.

If you are the first winner of the week we'll send you a pm asking which game you'd like to choose for the next week. Please keep it secret from the community until the reveal the next week.

All users who complete the AotW will also get a colored role in the Discord server for that week. If no one is qualified to decide the next contest it will be decided by RNG or Admin(s).

No game can be featured twice in a 24 week period.

will be maintaining a leaderboard for this weekly contest.

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 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.
