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 totally agree. It happens very frequently, even in the Arena, for there to be a "no show" player - and I have certainly had winning streaks broken by this as well, and it is annoying because it's totally out of your control. You could win 49 games in a row, but if any of the players doesn't show for Game 50 your streak is off. Ridiculous. I agree with you Dr Icarus that games which don't finish should just be ignored, not count as a tie that breaks the streak.

Bij mijn spellen hangt een spel Azul. Kan geen stap meer doen, maar ook niet afsluiten.
Spel begon al met vreemde grijze vlakken.

I'm also currently in 110+ turn-based games simultaneously, and I have none of the simultaneous achievements... I came across them when I was browsing the achievements of a high-XP account (listed/ranked on the BGA main page). Do the simultaneous game achievements exist any more? Or is this a bug? I cannot find a list of current achievements either, and I see a number of people have asked if there is one.

It seems that the achievement/XP system was revamped in 2020 and has been given little-to-no attention since then. Also, it probably shouldn't be called 'new' if it is unchanged since 2020.

How does it work for a XP trophy to be updated?

I won TOP1 trophy at Loco Momo a few days ago for 15k XP. Now it is 30k XP for 1rst. Somebody gets 1rst so i'm 2nd, I win a game and become 1rst again, but no XP udpate. Still 15K
I thought those could be updated when threshold for more XP points are reached, am I wrong?
Do i need to go out of the top 20?

It never will be updated. Longgoing issue noone from BGA seems to care about.

That is really bad and disappointing.
BGA developpers, you need to do something about this ASAP.

This XP udpate with arena mode has been an excellent change in BGA so please fix thi so that everything is logical.

@sourisdudesert Request/Suggestion/Recommendation...

For the [Top 1 Elo], I recommend you split it into two:

If you get [Top 1 Elo] in a game, then you earn the trophy [ELO GrandMaster in NameOfGame] Trophy. (This is a direct replacement for what you have.)

In addition, when you have the [Top 1 Elo], you get a [Top 1 Elo YYYY in NameOfGame], where YYYY is the year... in this way, if you're a "consistent GM" you still have something to work for year-to-year. :D

Note: Also, there should be a 'minimum number' of both games played && players.... "before" any [Top/GM ELO] awards are given per game.

Doesn't the Arena league already give good players something new to aim for? It resets each quarter so there are four opportunities each year to win more XP?

Same issue for me in Shifting Stones.I recently reached the 6th position and I got neither the Top 20 achievement nor the Top 10.
And I didn't get other achievements in other games too.
So you say there's no hope of fixing this?
