Posted on December 13, 2007, Stephany Turok Devs to Eliminate Team Kill Achievement
Propaganda Games, the developer of the latest Turok game for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 will be working to remove an achievement called ‘Grab Bag’ . This achievement gives you 10 points if you “kill at least 1 creature, 1 enemy, 1 teammate, and yourself in the same round of a public match,” which basically encourages nimrods to go around killing teams just to get this achievement.
Josh Holmes, VP of Propaganda Games basically stated that the achievement started as kind of a joke. “What we found was that players playing their first match in Turok - almost every player – was (accidentally) killing himself, a team mate and an enemy with a grenade or a Stick Bomb gun and so we thought ‘hey, we should give them an achievement for that’, as kind of a joke.”
This may sound funny, but some gamers felt that this was another way for those dreaded “achievement whores” to mess up team style gameplay just to get another notch on their proverbial belts.
“We’ve read some of the concerns that were described online, and maybe we underestimated the length to which so-called ‘achievement whores’ will go to [in order to] get their achievements,” admitted Holmes. “We are currently looking at readying a patch or solution for it if it does become an issue when the game releases” he added.
Holmes also went on to discuss online multiplayer achievements, and you can get the full article by clicking on the link below.
