Achievements

From Hattrick
(Redirected from Achievement)

The achievements feature was introduced in global season 31 (03/12/2006) to give every user a better gaming experience. This means that everyone in the game receives points for different things he/she has achieved in the game like founding a federation, buying/selling a player, writing a conference post and climbing up the rankings.

You can find the achievements list in the manager page in the "Latest achievements" link on the right.

All achievements list

The number of achievements and related points has changed over time, and at first it was even kept secret to increase the community participation (users had to seek for new achievements and then make public on the forum those that had been discovered).

On the 16th of September 2009, the achievements lay-out was changed and it was possible to see the different levels for each achievement. This proved, for example, that the maximum average rating was Magical (18) and the then unknown 70 points were rewarded on star and federation achievements.

After they have all been discovered the Hattrick Team made officially visible a full list.

There are 29 achievements and 983 points to collect.

In addition, there are also 3 achievements which give no points: they are the extra "Milestone" achievement (introduced on August 2017 as a gift to the user during the celebrations of the 20th anniversary of the game) and two achievements nowadays erased and impossible to obtain.

(*) This was 15 points, but has been removed as of 11/08/2009, three data after HT-Stefan announced that it would be removed. This achievement was only possible for new team if they did nothing in the first week; old teams once had the chance to achieve it during "salary free week" (but only if they teared down their arena, gave up youth and fired all staff).
After reaction by MD-JakobTrier and others who achieved it using the latter way, the achievement was returned but only symbolic being worth 0 points.

Not all achievements are updated immediately; indeed, most of them require the weekly update time to be displayed.

Bugs

Achievements have been plagued by a number of bugs, many of which have since been fixed. The following bugs are known to have existed and been corrected:

  • On the 16th of January 2008, Hattrick announces in a My Hattrick message that a long suspected bug which was probably introduced during the upgrade of several parts of the site on the 5th of November 2007 was now fixed.

We have at last found the nasty bug which has stopped the achievement updates from working properly. In matches played after 2008-01-15 10.00 the achievements update should work as usual again. Unfortunately we can not do any retroactive update of older achievements (made while the updates were malfunctioning). Sadly enough, this means any achievement taken during this period will be forever lost.

Achievements affected by this bug were the Home-grown lineup and Academy lineup. Also the Team reached X stars in a match achievement did not function properly in this period.
  • When this achievement bug fix was announced a new bug was introduced meaning that you would get star achievements not only if the stars of the 11 players (or less) who finish you game in total yields enough stars totally to reach the next level (see below for levels), now the stars of injured players were also included in this calculation making it easier to get star achievements if one or more players were injured in a game. This bug was fixed on the 1st of February 2008.
  • Around the 19th of April 2008, part of the site was upgraded to ".Net" and the calculation of how common achievements are was altered but the calculation of the number of U20 and NT coaches was about 3/4 of a million too high. The numbers for how many was elected U20 and NT coach was altered a few days later after a bug report was made. GM-marnow gave this explanation for the change made on the achievement page of each club team:

Previously the achievements counters were just increased when someone got the achievement. Currently they should reflect only statistics for currently active users. You may now see changes every week (numbers can both go up & down, previously they would only go up).

  • Near the end of 2008, following the introduction of the redesign 2008, the Promoted Player to Hall of Fame achievement began working for the first time.
  • On the 22nd of April 2009, HT-Stefan announced that he was working to debug all achievement issues. Numerous achievement bugs were fixed including: average match rating, the top 2 tiers of total team TSI, pulled a youth player (didn't work with the Youth Academy), sold a youth player, and also some text language issues (e.g. Team was ranked 1919 changed to Team was ranked amongst the top 2000).
  • On the 5th of October 2009 HT-Stefan announced the ranking achievement worked again, it had been broke for nearly 1,5 season. During that time the achievement for reaching ranking 1 was the only that had been updated.


Announcements

   Magnifier.png   Further information: Hattrick team massages about Achievements


They were announced in this editorial by the following announcement:

Hattrick announces
Next season will also see the start of a totally new alternative career feature: Achievements 27/11/2006
Unfortunately, the bitter truth is that not everyone can win the cup or the top league in Hattrick, so we think it’s important that there is a possibility to focus on an alternative career. Alternative careers (the more, the merrier!) give the game depth and give everyone a better gaming experience. Some people focus on being the best forward trainer, some focus on collecting flags and other focus on being an active member of the community for example. Now we add yet another career possibility: achievements.

Shortly put, this feature means you’ll get points for different things you’ve achieved in the game. Winning your league or advancing some rounds in the cup, for example, will give you some points, as will receiving a certain amount of stars in a match. Moreover you will also receive points for other things in the game like founding a federation, buying/selling a player, writing a conference post, climbing up the rankings and becoming a National coach. Most achievements will be known, but there will also be some hidden achievements to seek for.

Your achievements will be visible from your menu and your user page. Both the points you’ve achieved and the maximum points you can achieve will be shown.
