Achievements for the iPad version Sun, 21 October 2012 14:38
Am I the only one having problems with achievements on the iPad version of TtR???
The only achievements I can get are the conductor ones - for the number of games and the new Ghost Catcher achievment. I have played more than a thousand games and certainly met the requirements of many achievements. Switzerland - I should have them all by now, however there are no achievements shown in my Hall of Fame.

I am having the same problem, I have had over 9 completed tickets and won the game and I don't even have the 3 ticket achievement. Also I have scored over 200 points and have none of those either. The only ones that it shows I have earned are number of games played and ghost hunter.

So it looks like a bug! I wonder what could be done to this.

I figured it out how to do it. You have to be playing in "solo" mode , not the "online" version. Lame but that's the wA it is......

Ah...I didn't even think to mention that. All of the achievements are for when you are playing Solo mode against an AI player. Smile

Part of the reason for that choice might have been so players couldn't just call up a buddy and have him 'help' get the achievement. It also spices up the Solo mode! Cool

It turns out that my problem does not have a solution! If it was a bug it could be fixed, but it is not. What is the point of achieving anything playing against dumb bots ( they are all dumb)? What is the point of calling a buddy to get achievements? They don't give any advantage. Achievements should have been implemented to bring some new challenge into the online game for the ones who need it. If a player does not want new challenge he can choose to call a buddy. It is his choice.

Re:Achievements for the iPad version Tue, 23 October 2012 09:48
There are very logical reasons why DoW chose not to include the achievements in with normal games:

1) Many of the achievements require players to play in a very risky way, with a good chance of losing against a normal player. People who are fighting for rank points will be unwilling to risk points in this way.

2) The clear focus from the very start of TTR Online has been to play against other people and compete through the ranking system. DoW has kept that focus by having players fight for points with the online mode and try for achievements in the Solo mode.

3) Because the bots aren't always challenging for good players, the achievement system adds an extra reason for people to enjoy the solo games when they don't have internet connections.

4) The TTR Pocket games have the achievements because they aren't online games...and the iPad version got the same feature so people who only have the iPad version can earn the achievements as well.

In the end, it sounds like you enjoy the competition side of the game more, so that's what you'll focus on. It's unfortunate that you can't enjoy both of them, but maybe when you're out camping (without reception) you can go after the achievements! Cool

If you're needing more challenges, you might enjoy signing up for one of the team competitions that people have online. You can also try to move yourself up the ranking system and get into the top 10, or something like that.

I have just played against Marg Loughbot on a standard USA map I completed 6 tickets and scored 137 but no achievements received. Anyway it is strange that the achievements can be found in the Station where everything is dedicated to online gaming.

Now, I see! Last time I did not get achievments after the game with Marg Loughbot because it was Pass&Play mode chosen automatically. I should have chosen Solo mode. It works fine now! Smile

I'm glad it's working! Even though the bots aren't very good, I really enjoyed earning the different achievements. Smile

Have fun! Cool

Now I have all the achievments unlocked except Conductor Level 4 (5000 games) and Conductor Level 5 (20000games), but those two are just a matter of time Smile
