Personally I can't wait to see what games are in each category so I can work on getting better rankings in each.

Yup...

December 6, 2006

It is that time of the week... Wednesday... that means lots of coding... and it is all for you! The subject of the week was badges. We have actually been working on a gigantic massive rewrite of all the badge code. The badge processing was seriously dragging down the site and as more people have been joining it just keeps getting slower and slower. We are close to a point where we can finally start offering some new stuff. Here is what will be coming this week:

Genre Badges
We have starting adding genres to our game data so we can start grouping stats around specific types of games. Badges will be the first to use this. Here is our starting selection of genre badges:
http://battlestar.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/genre_badges.gif
There are three levels for each genre badge:Enthusiast
One (1) star for over 30% completion of gamerscore for all games in the genre.
Expert
Two (2) stars for over 60% completion of gamerscore for all games in the genre.
Master
Three (3) stars for over 90% completion of gamerscore for all games in the genre.
In the short term, there is no way to know what games are in which genres... I will build that in the coming week so that if you are interested in pursuing a specific badge, you can see what genres have what games in them and go after the gamerscore you are missing.
Adding genres to our data has been a significant undertaking and will touch many areas of the site going forward (leaderboards, charts, stats, blogs, etc.). I can't say when it will touch those areas, but it will eventually... so this is just the first step. There will be many more badges to come in this area.

Happy/Sad Xbox
http://battlestar.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/happysad_badges.gif
This is easy: If you have more days you play vs. not play in a 30 day period, your Xbox is happy... otherwise it is sad.
Play Style
http://battlestar.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/playstyle_badges.gif
There are three different play styles:Dabbler
You have an average of over 25% completion on all games you have played that aren't zero gamerscore.
Gamer
You have an average of over 50% completion on all games you have played that aren't zero gamerscore.
Elite
You have an average of over 75% completion on all games you have played that aren't zero gamerscore.
You can only have one of these at a time.

Nice one Kaens, saves me searching through their site :p

Oh, another thing, did we ever find out what that rabbit was that Maka had?

@ Smokez - That symbol = Next time you see these gamers say, "You are a ninja of XML!"

@ Webb - Whats XML

Monsterbox

XML = eXtensible Mark-up Language

It is a variant of HTML that allows for extremely dynamic web pages. It is also what 360Voice is developed in. It allows the pages to aggregate data from the XBox.com feed for info about your XBox.

Usually the ninja icon is reserved for people who have assisted them in developing new functionality for 360 voice. No offense, but if you don't know what XML is, I'm guessing you got the badge by mistake. ;)

Streaks have nothing to do with achievements or time playin, all that matters it the 'Last Date Played' stat on each game. So...lets say you play GoW all day, and are playin it through midnight, its possible the 'last played' date won't show up till the next day. A good way to keep your streak goin is to play a quick game of Geometry Wars, then start your real gamin. As long as you have at least one game that has 'Last Played Today's Date', you're golden.

Same Problem, Its because you've completed games before signing up with them...

And how did it come about that they're our affiliates all of a sudden?

Today I noticed that they posted explanations of what games will earn you the genre badges. Here's the link to the RPG one (http://www.360voice.com/genre-view.asp?genre=1), you can switch from that page to others using the drop down menu.
