- The bronze, silver, and gold tiers all have tasks assigned to them and each task will grant a token.
🕹️: Tasks that can be done by anyone.
🛠️: Tasks that can only be done by devs. Junior devs will need code reviewer approval.
🕹️🛠️: Tasks that can be done by anyone, but will require a dev to sponsor a vote and/or commit changes.

- The platinum tier has a separate list and focuses on games previously ignored in The Unwanted as well as games that have never been mastered, despite the player count.





- As always, don't be a dick. 

- Each month begins and ends on the 15th.

- You can start at any time and can skip months if you want to!!!

- When a month ends, the main game selection will be changed and will become ineligible for players. However, if you are an achievement developer, you can still resolve tickets, revise, add new badges, etc. for any of the previous months' games.

- There is no limit on tokens. You can master three of the games for three silver tokens, beat two games for two bronze tokens, etc.

- Bleed over can occur. For example, if you qualify for silver and end up getting six more silver tokens, you can trade those extra ones for one golden token.

- Some tiers are stackable and marked with ♾️ - For example, if you master one game for a silver token, you will also receive a bronze token for beating the game. If you master three games, you get a gold token for doing that, three silvers for mastering three games, one silver for beating three games, and three bronze for beating three games.




- In number of tokens you must obtain to qualify for a tier are as followed:
Bronze: 9
Silver: 6
Gold: 3
Platinum: 2

- When you qualify in a tier, at the end of the month you will get an achievement manually unlocked for that tier. Once you have qualified in that tier twelve times, you will be awarded the mastery badge. You are not required to qualify twelve months in a row. So if you have three achievements unlocked in a tier, you could take a whole year off, do a couple more, take another break, then do the rest. You need twelve total per tier.

- Yes, you can qualify for a higher tier without qualifying for a lower tier. It happens.

- For Discord users: qualifying in any tier will grant you the @unwanted role for the rest of that month. You'll be able to stay more up-to-date, take part in occasional voting, and have a sexy red name.





- You can check this hub for a full list of previous months' games:

- The DevCoC still applies and has priority over The Unwanted! Before making changes to achievements, make sure you have permission from a set's developer if they are active. Revision guidelines still apply.

- For the sake of convenience, a ❗ has been added to all Unwanted games and bonus games with devs considered active.

📌Do tokens carry over into the next month?
No. All tokens reset at 00:00 GMT on the 15th. Plan accordingly!

📌Who are the hosts and what do they do?
StingX2:
- pitched/started/shaped the event; it's his baby
- came up with the initial tasks
- started the bounties
- verifies that participants do what they say they do
televandalist:
- suggested the "unlock in chunks" approach to make it badge-worthy
- came up with more tasks/bounties for devs
- does the promo images and forum posts (as of Month 7)
- keeps things organized ;)

📌How are the games picked each month?
StingX2 and televandalist sift through a list of sets sorted by the least amount of players, but also account for things such as upload date, accessibility, etc. More often than not, games need to be swapped around to try and keep each month's list varied enough so there's something for everyone.

📌tele has had like six or seven sets in the event already. This shit is rigged.
Look at the player count for those sets...

📌 These are separate from the monthly batch of games, but still fall within the spirit of the competition due to the sets having inactive devs or aspect(s) of the entry being neglected. 

📌 PLEASE REMEMBER THAT YOU DON'T GET TOKENS FOR BEATING/MASTERING THESE, ONLY FOR SUPPLYING RELEVANT SAVE DATA AND FIXES!

📌 Most of these games will not leave the bonus game list until the tickets are taken care of! Use that to your advantage!

📌 If at least 50 tickets for bonus games are resolved in a month, there will be a "refill" which replaces the games cleared of tickets with other games.

- One token per task

🛠️ Resolve a ticket from any of the bonus games.
--🕹️ Provide a save state or save battery file before the section of a game in which the tickets were made. These saves MUST be compatible with RALibretro!
The above must be done by separate players


- One token per task

🛠️ Resolve at least five tickets from any of the bonus games.
--🕹️ Provide save states or save battery files to assist in the resolution of at least five tickets. Saves need to be before the section of a game in which the tickets were made. These saves MUST be compatible with RALibretro!
The above must be done by separate players

🎨 Create custom box art for hacks, homebrews, prototypes, etc. Obvious low-effort work will not be eligible. Try to make these look as legit as you can. Game must have an achievement set. Age ratings such as ESRB are not necessary. Here's an example from ~Hack~ Pokemon: Hypno's Lullaby.
