[CLOSED] Design an Achievement Contest!

  • Ahoy!

    Not a day goes by here at Rare where I don’t hear someone playing Sea of Thieves shout, “that should be an achievement!”.

    This is a sentiment shared by our community, even just a cursory glance at these forums offer a wealth of threads detailing cool stories that have actually happened during our Technical Alpha, or general ideas around what would make for a great achievement in the future. This gave us an idea; what if we invited YOU the community to join us in the Closed Beta and, with your best thinking hooks on, help us create a new achievement!

    When the Closed Beta kicks off TODAY, the 24th of January at 12pm GMT, we’ll be opening a forum thread (THIS ONE!) to gather up all your best ideas. When Closed Beta ends on Wednesday the 31st of January, we’ll then close this forum thread, and lock ourselves in the Brig until we’ve picked our 5 favourite achievement ideas. Once we’ve gathered those top 5, hopefully someone will let us out of the Brig and we can pass the list back to the community to vote on your favourite!

    Now onto the rewards! The winning achievement idea will become a fully realised Sea of Thieves achievement in the future, PLUS the winner will have their name written into our credits parchment. As if that wasn’t enough, the winner will also receive a signed piece of artwork from the whole team, and a wealth of extra Sea of Thieves booty!

    To enter, please read the rules below and post your entry on our forum in this thread using this template:

    Achievement Name: No more than 44 characters – e.g ‘Bone-Cronch’
    Achievement Description: No more than 100 characters – e.g ‘Kill a skeleton while it's 'cronching' on a banana.’
    (Optional): A suggested image idea for the Achievement.
