Objective:
The Achievement of the Week (AotW) contest, as the name suggests, is held on a weekly basis. One 2-3 hour achievement is chosen, and players aim to earn that achievement during the week of the contest. All you need to do is earn the featured achievement during that week, and you’ll be added to the leaderboard at the end of the week.

In addition, a 6-8 hour β€œAchievement of the Month” (AotM) will go live on the first Monday of each month. Each AotM also awards one unit of currency which can be spent in the Lifeline Shop.

Which achievement do I have to earn?
The chosen Achievement of the Week will be displayed on the site’s home page.
The Achievement of the Month will be announced here in this forum thread each month.

Both achievements will be listed at the top of this post.

Scoring:
Scoring system remains the same as for the 2022 season.
1 point is earned on the AotW Leaderboard each week if you earn the achievement in Hardcore mode.
1 point is earned for each Achievement of the Month you earn (in Hardcore).
The maximum number of points you can earn throughout the entire year is 52 weeks + 12 months = 64 total points.



πŸ’ŸLifeline Shop:πŸ’Ÿ
This year we are offering 7 lifelines which you can use to help you along your yearly adventure. Each AotM you earn awards 1 β€œFlikki”, which can be spent on the following lifelines. Everyone starts with 3 Flikkies 4 Flikkies, meaning you can earn a maximum of 15 16 throughout the year. To use a lifeline, simply post in this forum thread, and the appropriate number of Flikkies will be deducted from your balance accordingly.

**NEW** Everybody has been given an extra Flikki as a bonus. The starting balance for players is now 4 Flikkies.

❀️ AotM Extension - 1 Flikki
Gives you an extra week to earn the current AotM. You can decide to use it starting one week after the current AotM has started, and up until one week after it has ended. So for example, for January's AotM, you can decide to use it as early as January 9th, and as late as February 12th (a week after January's AotM ended), but regardless of when you decide you want to use it, you only get until February 12th at 23:59:59 to earn it.

❀️ AotW Swap - 1 Flikki
Gives you the chance to swap out the current AotW (only yours, wouldn't affect any other players) for a pre-selected achievement from your choice of one of the other 4 game choices in that week's poll. The swap-out can be used for seasonal events as well.

❀️ AotM Swap - 1 Flikki
Gives you the chance to swap out the current AotM for another pre-selected achievement.

❀️ Second Chance Weekly - 1 Flikki
Earn any AotW you missed earlier in the year and use this to get credit for it. Can be redeemed any time before the end of the year.

❀️ Second Chance Monthly - 2 Flikkies
Earn any AotM you missed earlier in the year and use this to get credit for it. Can be redeemed any time before the end of the year. You will still gain a Flikki by using this, making the effective cost 1 Flikki.

πŸ’– Free Pass Weekly - 4 Flikkies
This will allow you to skip any AotW you wish. You'll be able to use it to get credit for any AotW from 2023, even ones you missed earlier this year.

πŸ’– Free Pass Monthly - 7 Flikkies
This will allow you to skip any AotM you wish. You'll be able to use it to get credit for any AotM from 2023, even ones you missed earlier this year. You will still gain a Flikki by using this, making the effective cost 6 Flikkies.

Rewards:
-Year-End Awards: A Hardcore badge will be given to players who have earned a certain amount of points on the Leaderboard by the end of 2023. A single badge is awarded based on the highest tier you have reached:
πŸ†Champion’s Tier: 64 points
πŸ₯‡Gold Tier: 48-63 points
πŸ₯ˆSilver Tier: 30-47 points
πŸ₯‰Bronze Tier: 12-29 points

Schedule:
The 2023 season will start Monday, January 2nd, 2023, and finish Sunday, December 31st, 2023 (23:59:59 server time)

The contest will begin weekly at 12:00am (midnight) UTC (server time) on Mondays.

Achievement Selection:
Each Wednesday, a poll will be posted in the #aotw-voting channel on the Discord server consisting of five games chosen at random by the events team. The poll will run until the following Sunday at 15:00 UTC. Vote counts will remain hidden until the results are revealed. The winning game will become the next AotW and have an achievement chosen by the events team go live at 00:00 UTC.

Additionally, this year the community will be involved in the AotM selection process. Each month, the events team will select a theme and begin accepting suggestions for games meeting that theme. Five viable game suggestions will be chosen at random, which will then go to a poll for you to vote on.

FAQ

Do I have to do anything special to participate?
No – all you need to do is earn the achievement, and you’re in! The Leaderboard is updated only once a week, so don’t worry if your score doesn’t take any new points into effect right away.

Can I play in Softcore?
Only Hardcore wins will be counted. Make sure that if you’re going after the AotW, that your emulator is set to Hardcore Mode.

Will passwords/level select/etc. be allowed?
Typically, anything the achievement developer allows in their achievement code, will be allowed here. However, there is no short answer to this – whether passwords are allowed or not will be judged on a case by case basis, depending on the achievement chosen and the difficulty and length of the game. With that said, if it has not been stated, passwords are generally not allowed unless they are your own and if you use a password that is not your own, or are unable to prove it is yours, you may forfeit your point for that week.
In games with a save system, using a downloaded save file isn't allowed (unless specified) - you will need to use your own save file. When such achievements are picked, we will usually check to see if other progression achievements were earned, including their timestamps.

Will alts be allowed?
Yes, alts are allowed, but you'll need to let RAEvents or the @Events-Team on Discord know which alt you're using. As well, if you've previously earned the featured achievement, you can choose to reset that one achievement and re-earn it during the week to get credit.

What if I already earned the featured achievement?
As mentioned above, players may reset and re-earn the featured achievement or use a declared alternate account to earn the achievement and receive credit.

Do I need to join Discord to participate?
No, but it is highly recommended. Your points will still be counted even if you don’t have a Discord account, but since game selection takes place in the Discord server, you will miss out on voting for the new game each week. It’s also much easier to keep up to date on events that are taking place throughout the year, such as themed weeks.

Can games/achievements be changed mid-week?
Typically, no – what you get, you’re stuck with for the week. The only occasion where an achievement would be changed mid-week would be if the achievement code, or the code for the set, is broken or poorly coded, to the extent it needs a complete re-work.

Can a set receive a revision while the game is being featured in the AotW?
No. Revisions can be planned and voted on, but they cannot be put into effect until at least the end of the week, when that game is no longer featured in the AotW. Exceptions may be made for things such as adding save protection, though this is typically put in place before the contest starts or within the first few hours.

I missed earning it by X minutes, does it still count?
00:00 UTC Monday is the deadline. The old achievement is considered retired the moment the new achievement goes live on the site. Please keep the end date and time in mind, and plan accordingly - try not to leave things until the last minute.

What do I do if I think my score might be wrong?
We do make mistakes sometimes - names might occasionally get missed due to spelling errors when entering a name in the spreadsheet, accidentally entering an alt's name, or just overlooking it. Contact RAEvents, or make a post in this forum topic letting us know your score might be wrong. We'll check for any achievements that you might have missed to see if you earned the achievement during the week it was featured, and adjust your score if needed. It's usually a good idea to avoid resetting any AotWs you have earned until you're sure your score is correct.

Will there be seasonal events?
Seasonal events will be announced in separate forum threads when the time comes.

Swapping my AotW to the above, just can't really get into Sparkster. Shame about PSO only being a swap, but using two lifelines on week 1 would be a waste
