Can I please have my old achievement view back? Or at least the option to have the old view? The new style with the huge blocks is such an obnoxious eye sore.

Dear BGA, the DICE games of yours are getting crazy unnatural, these impossible series of rolls... Can you please fix it and not favour the players with lower points that crazy much, thank you! People are declining the games before start because of this, people are forfeiting games more often and it makes me look for anther website to be honest. You took out the randomness and put in some crazy algorithm that makes Yahtzee not enjoyable anymore.

Yahtzee plays fine for me and my Yahtzee ELO is over 300.

You must have just had the type of unusual rolls that will inevitably happen from time to time. I’ve had annoying runs in the past - like when I was one game off Elite league four times and four times my opponents got two Yahtzee’s! But that was just bad luck and these things happen.

Я считаю неправильным, что очки дают только за первую тысячу игр и первую тысячу побед, думаю, ветеранов надо поощрять.

Hi, is there a way to know what the current player pool for a game is?
I think - correct me if i'm wrong - that the number of XP given for top 20/10 etc in a game (all time ELO) is decided given how many players have played the game in the last two months. Can we see this number somewhere so that we know how much XP we are fighting for?

We intended to introduce the XP and all the achievements 2 weeks ago, way before the end of Season zero.

Since new achievements will be obviously introduced at the end of Season zero (for Arena season winners), we are indeed forced to introduce this new system before the end of the Season.

However, for 4 weeks now, our first priority have been to increase the capacity of the platform because of the current circumstances.

So basically, we didn't do everything that was planned to be done for this update: a lot of achievements are missing, and there are still some adjustment to be made.

However, as the feature is quite stable, we chose to release it in "BETA", and finalize it in the following weeks, thanks to your feedback.
So, the "following weeks" was almost 2 years ago and the beta label is still there.

Is this going to be lifted at some point?

There seems to be a bit of confusion about the win streaks. Let me clarify a few points:
1. Win streaks are awarded per game in steps of 2, 3, 5, 10, 20 and 50.
2. In order for a victory to be considered there must be at least 2 players. Solo playthroughs don't count.
3. The same goes for games against an AI or in training mode. They don't count.
4. Ties count as losses even if you tie on first place.
5. You do not lose your win streak for one game if you play i.e. a training match in between them, or try a different game.
Regarding ties during a win streak: what about when another player abandons the game and gets kicked out? When this happens in a three-or four- player game, the remaining players automatically tie. How is it fair to punish the remaining players by having this game count against their win streaks? BGA should treat such games like training mode games; that is, they shouldn't count for or against a winning streak.

I've won 52 consecutive games of Teotihuacan and didn't receive the 50 consecutive wins badge because of this nonsensical rule (two of the games were abandoned by an opponent). BGA should immediately change this rule and award me (and any other deserving player) this badge.
