The Big Achievement 2020, or as it was previously called, "~Bonus~ AotW", is a competition that will last all year. It is similar to Achievement of the Week in the sense that achievements and challenges will be voted upon and are required to obtain in order to gain points. However, there are a few twists compared to AotW. Most notably: the difficulty.

Bi-Weekly Achievement:

πŸ’€Winners may submit an achievement to be added to the pool, which will be selected by majority vote. There will not be randomly selected games.

πŸ’€The win-rate of an achievement should not exceed 10% at the time it is suggested. This could be for more challenging achievements or for newer achievements; it's up to the players to decide. A case may be made for achievements over the 10% earn rate. This is to allow for more bonus set and niche game achievements.

πŸ’€The first achievement (January 1st - January 15th) will be selected by those who are currently eligible for the standard AotW's gold badge and those who could possibly get it with the time that's left.


Monthly Challenge:

πŸ’€Each month will have a different challenge. I have already decided on the Q1 Monthly Challenges, but winners will vote for Q2-4 Challenges.

πŸ₯³Point System and BadgesπŸ₯³

- Each of the bi-weekly achievements will be worth 1 point.
- Each of the monthly challenges will be worth 2 points.

Points will go toward a site award badge:
πŸ₯‰Bronze Award - 15-24 points
πŸ₯ˆSilver Award - 25-34 points
πŸ₯‡Gold Award - 35-44 points
πŸ’€Platinum award - 45-50 points

Aside from points to go towards the badge, if a user is on Discord, they will receive the "TBA2020 WINNERπŸ’€" role, which allows access to #πŸ’€the-big-achievement-2020 Discord channel. Winners of the monthly challenge will get the role and a πŸ’€after their nickname.

IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT CHEATING
It's sad that I actually need to say this, but cheating will not be tolerated and will disqualify you from the event. This means no cheats, passwords, or glitches. This is and will remain the default rule and I will announce any exceptions upon announcing new challenges. Furthermore, if the nature of your unlocks raise adequate suspicions, I will simply exclude your name from the winner's list. This could be multiple unlocks at the same time, timestamps that are unreasonably close together, earn times that are way out of a normal playthrough's order, etc. If I have excluded your name and you feel the need to defend yourself, by all means: do so.

Q1 Monthly Challenges

January
πŸ’€We're starting things simple. All you need to do is obtain . You have until 11:59PM GMT, Jan 31st.

February
πŸ’€To celebrate the Leap Year, this will be a Leap Frog month. You must obtain 1 achievement on February 1st, 2 achievements on February 2nd, 10 achievements on February 10th, etc. until earning 29 achievements on February 29th. Winners of January's challenge will vote on whether there will be a five point or ten point minimum requirement.
❀️Tele's Valentine's Day Gift to Participants❀️: Normally the 2 points for the monthly challenges will be an "all or nothing" deal, but if participants reach February 14th and earn 14 achievements, they will secure 1 of the 2 points, even if they fail later in the month.

FAQ
Why bi-weekly instead of weekly?
This was decided so as not to interfere with the standard AotW competition as well as to compensate for the increased difficulty and time commitments this competition will require.

Can we earn softcore achievements for half the points?
No.

What about earning all achievements EXCEPT the challenge achievements in softcore?
Stop trying to weasel your way around the competition. NO!

What if freepoints slip by and wins in the polls?
Then the suggestion will be axed and 2nd place will be crowned the winner.

Are there going to be make-up weeks?
This will depend entirely on how the competition goes. There MIGHT be some way for newcomers to join in and catch up somehow, but not at the expense of current participants, and it definitely won't be pretty.

Why is it called The Big Achievement 2020?
I had "TBA2020event" as a placeholder title for the event. Obviously, TBA means "To Be Announced" but various users were making their own titles using TBA. The Big Achievement kinda stuck.

Why the GMT Time Zone?
The server uses GMT so all time stamps on achievements are in GMT time. Makes things easier, especially if there's ever disputes about time.
