Achievements Are BACK!

Published by at 4:46 pm under Achievement Levels,E-mail Newsletter,News

Seems like Howrse really gave into the players today – First, they realized the egg was a bit unfair for some players and allowed Falabellas to be found in the Horn of Plenty (Unfortunately, this was a bit unfair for the players who already owned one). And now, the achievements are back! This is one thing I will definitely not disagree with – this is a great system that provides goals for new players (and old!) and even makes new players more familiar with the game. The achievements are right back where they ended, so no need to go back and complete previous levels.

Many players realized that most of the players already completed the achievements, or are close to doing so. Therefore, they understood the removement of the achievements. Howrse’s developers took that into mind and decided while the achievements are back on the game, they might as well introduce a new system. Everyone will get back to zero, making their way back up. I’m excited to see what they will be doing – this will be a great opportunity to incorporate new ideas / options on the game!

    I had mixed feelings about Achievements being deleted. I’ve been stuck on “top 500 EC prestige” and “popularity” on Level 8 since last September, which is a pain in the behind. I thought, cool, I don’t have to deal with that, or the “produce unicorn couple” which is a crapshoot most of the time. But I thought, geez, all I’ll be doing is logging in to rotate meadows and working a pass horse after awhile! It was nice having that third riding lesson just for yesterday, which I’m guessing I should’ve gotten for passing Riding Level 10? I’m not sure how it worked, I knew some fellow Level 8’ers were getting three lessons a day though.

    I’m wondering what the sparkling new Achievements are going to be… starting over kind of gripes me a little but! Note: I’m not being a grouch but ever since I first joined Howrse, there’s been the same names in the top ranks of everything with big gaps between the trophy winners and 4th, 5th etc place. Maybe starting Achievements from scratch will give more players a chance, especially children and teen players and players in general who are unable to buy giant packs-o-Passes or don’t wish to spend a ton of money on them.

    I haven’t gotten a Falabella but are they sellable?

    It bugs me a bit too – the only way to get to the top is to buy passes, mainly. Or else work hard to find BM items from players for low prices. I managed to get to the top 2,000 rankings, but for the past 5 days, I keep sinking back 50 spot everyday. :/

    Yes, they can be put up for sale – several are in the auctions.

    Ok, so on the new objectives, i can’t figure some of them out, and I can’t find an answer online anywhere, one of them says “Breeding farm: Put horses from your breeding farm to bed 28 times” i have 14 horses and have put them all to bed 2 nights in a row…isn’t that 28 times, or are they meaning something else?

    It needs to be all at once. Put them all (or you can take care of one 28 times) to bed, age them, and work them again.

    I know!! i have 2 of those objectives left, which is Stupid!! and one of them is put your horses to bed 100 times, (great) and the other one is reach a certian karma, which is no problems, but still. it shouldnt have to be all at once… i have put horses to bed over 2000 times, just not 100 at once, ill be broke to all the ECs out there if i do that!!
