Introducing the latest TrueTrophies Community Challenge - BATH!
As many of us now find ourselves at home with some extra spare time on our hands, we thought we should launch our latest Community Event - the Bonkers Arbitrary Trophy Hunt (or BATH for short) to give you something fun to do.

BATH

What is the Bonkers Arbitrary Trophy Hunt?
This is a solo, personalised community challenge. We'll build you a list of 30 trophies of varying difficulties across a broad range of games from your Game Collection, and you will have until April 24th to unlock as many as you can - pop at least 15 and you'll earn yourself a new Community Challenge Badge!

How to register
Head over to the BATH hub (or maybe we should call it the BATH Tub?) and click on Register. You'll be taken through to the registration page where you can choose the platforms you want to play on, and also whether you want us to include unstarted games from your collection.

As soon as you are happy, click the Register now for the Bonkers Arbitrary Trophy Hunt button and your target list will be generated!

Additional info
You need to have at least 100 valid locked trophies across at least 5 games to enter, and be on full site tracking.

Trophies count as valid if they are:
Not currently unlocked by you
Not from any DLC packs
Between 1.2 and 10 TT Ratio
From either Only games you've started or All owned games in your collection (you decide)
Not flagged as Unobtainable or Discontinued
Not flagged as Time/Date
Not flagged as Buggy -
Not flagged as Time Consuming
Not flagged as Platinum
Not flagged as Partly Discontinued/Unobtainable

You can find more details in the BATH FAQ, and discuss the event in the
Bonkers Arbitrary Trophy Hunt Discussion Thread

Leap Frog 2020
After the success of the LinkFrog Event which we ran in 2019, we thought we'd continue the frog theme with another Leap Frog Event on TT! This time we're basing it on TT Ratio, and have an event duration of two weeks.

What is Leap Frog?

The contest will begin at 12 noon UTC on Monday February 10th and lasts until 11am UTC on Monday February 24th. To register, all you need to do is head over to the Leap Frog 2020 hub and hit the "Register Now" button.

Once registered, the goal of the contest is simple; you need to earn one trophy above the required TT Ratio before the daily period ends.

On day one, the required ratio will be 1, and it then increases by 0.2 daily until the event finishes. Failure to earn a trophy with the required ratio in the 24-hour time period will result in elimination from the competition.

All those who make it to day 8 of the contest (unlocking a min 2.2 ratio trophy from day 7) will receive a Community Challenge badge rank for their efforts.

In addition, the top 3 gamers still in the contest at the end of the two week period will receive a prize. Leaderboard positions will be determined by their highest ratio trophy unlocked throughout the contest. In the event of a tie, the second highest ratio'd trophy will count.

Which Trophies Count?

All trophies earned and scanned into TT will count for this contest.

Introducing the TrueTrophies Leaderboards For The 2010s Decade
Every year we produce our annual leaderboards, which show everyone on the site tracked by various metrics and allow you to dig deeper by filtering on game genre and platforms, and also by region and country.

As we've just celebrated the end of a decade, we thought it would be fascinating to look at how everyone did across the entire 2010s decade (and, yes, we are using all trophies unlocked from the start of 2010 to the end of 2019 for these calculations).

You can find the base leaderboards here: TrueTrophies Leaderboards for the 2010s Decade.

TrueTrophies Site Leaderboards
As with our annual roundups, we've included leaderboards for TrueTrophy Score, Trophies Won,
TT Ratio and Number of Games Played. We also have a Completed Games Leaderboard -- this includes all the games finished during the decade, irrespective of when you started them. As usual, you can change the completion DLC type from the Leaderboard Settings dropdown.

There's also leaderboards for each trophy type, including Platinum Trophies.


Filtering the 2010s Decade Leaderboards - See How Your Friends Did!
The leaderboard pages have all your usual TT filtering options, allowing you to filter by platform, genre, region and area! You can also easily find your position on the board by clicking the "..." button in the header and then selecting the Find Me option. It will take you to the page and scroll down automatically to show your position in all of its glory. Click the Friends only option to show just you and your buddies.


Share Your Positions
Once you've used the Find Me option, click the share icon next to your position to be shown the share panel:


From here you can share on Facebook, Twitter, other social sites. The shares look pretty cool and link through directly to the correct leaderboard and position:


We'll be sending you a PM over the next few days containing some of your most impressive leaderboard positions of the decade!

Vote Now for The TrueTrophies Game of The Decade!
TrueTrophies Game of the Decade

Before we start hyping up what will undoubtedly be a huge year for gaming in 2020, we wanted to take a moment to honour the games that made us in the decade* past. That's why we're opening up our first ever TrueTrophies Game of the Decade event!

Those who took part in our Game of the Year 2019 event will recognise the format – we'll ask you a bunch of questions around topics like your favourite DLC, your best trophies, and your overall best game. This time, your pool of choices will stretch to anything released between 2010 and 2019. We'll be chucking in some new questions too – we want to know who your favourite developers and publishers are, and we want to know which games surprised you or got a bad rap that you feel they didn't deserve.

So how do you vote? Just head over to the Game of the Decade Hub and select Vote at the bottom of the list of questions. The question list should be pre-populated with games and trophies on your tag.

The TrueTrophies Game of the Decade poll ends at 15:00 GMT on Monday 20th, 2020. Make sure to have all of your votes submitted by then! We'll share the results with you on Tuesday 21st 2020.

*As we have discussed at length on TA, we're reviewing the cultural decade from 2010-2019, just as you would cover 1990-1999 if you were looking at "the 90s".
