    Hello.

    Just wanted to hear other people, how many achievement points they got.
    I personally have 1115 achievement points and got the game 2 weeks ago.

    Am i higher or lower than the average?
    How many points do you have?
    For how long did you have the game?

    Feel free to discuss, comment and let us know how many points you got.

    2655. Getting the majority of the Exploration and Liberty Campaign ones is a close to a solid 2000.

    Achievements are things you wouldnt normally do in a game, such as Zerglot, or getting a unit to survive 500 points of damage.

    How would you not try to get a unit to survive 500 points of damage?

    I have both Frugal Fighter and A Roach's Life, both gotten in completely normal games.

    You might with an Immortal, but a Roach is countered by extremely high-damage units and thus rarely survives more than a few battles while having taken a significant amount of damage. I assume you got lucky to get the Roach achievement.

    I don't understand. You seem to have posted a ton in the Starcraft II section, yet you haven't played the game enough to get any achievements?

    I got Frugal Fighter with a colossus and A Roach's Life in early game against zealots and stalkers.

    I thought Frugal Fighter was immortal only given the icon, but a Colossus makes a lot of sense as well (enemies constantly trying to snipe it and you constantly microing it back). However, I'm still surprised that you accidentally got A Roach's Life unless your opponent wasn't particularly good.

    Thanks for the answers everybody.

    Im increasing my points everyday and i have now reached 1300.
    I will agree with Phalanx, the best way to get achievement points is to do campaign and exploration, though the other categories gives some points too. Complete the City Builder and you allready a got bunch more points.

    I did all the campaign achievements in one sleep-deprived night. Needless to say, it was awesome.

    He's an achievement hipster. Have you not seen his other posts on the subject?

    He's just posting here to feel superior as usual; I replied with "go away" for a reason.

    I got frugal fighter fairly easily.

    All you have to do is kill off a cannon rush, but leave one photon up and use a unit to constantly damage itself till it regens enough shield. Same for the Roach one.

    Unfortunately, the three others require a good deal more work. Cooperative and Custom Games requires you to play some 250 matches each against Computers, which is rather boring. It's decently easy to get most of the Outmatched and the ones that aren't Comp Romps, but the rest is pretty tedious to get. Cooperative is very much the same.

    Quick Match is even harder though, because its all wins against Players. So unless you decide you don't care about your placements and play as random and worker rush every single game you play and stay in Bronze league, you will not likely get more than a couple hundred achievement points in there by the end of the year. And that tactic doesn't work in team games.

    I tend to play a few games against computers when I have only a short period of time (like, less than ten minutes) and/or am extremely tired and thus really have nothing else to do. I figure at this rate I'll eventually get the relevant achievements and entertain myself in the process.

    Similar thing happened to me. My 2v2 teammate was dropped, so I had to control us both. I trained a zealot early to ward off rushes, and was like "Oh zerglot."

    What I think the problem here is that you post so much in the Starcraft II portion of the site, yet you haven't played the game enough to get an achievement on your own. That baffles me. You care enough to make posts here yet not enough to play the game? How does that even work?

    Go play the game before you post lol.
