    Do you think they should add achievements that give you a negative score? The closest we have to this is the zero point achievements on Dead or Alive (5 straight loses etc..). One gamercard I saw they had the "played five hours" achievement and several zero point achievements but nothing else :rotfl: This has got to be an indication that you really are crap and you should get say -200 point for it.

    Actually that's a pretty good idea, knowing how some people value their achievments it would certainly add to the presure when playing some of the harder games settings:rotfl:

    I mean I remember when Tomb Raider(can't remeber which one) gave you the option to save anywhere, the game lost alot of it's tension and panic. Haha, negative achiements could have the opposite affect.

    think you're being a bit unfair lets face it games are for all people of all ages and abilities, those just learning a new game and some kids would get penalized all the time and that would put them off trying anymore.
    personally i myself have had the five straight losses in doa4 , and thats because i was a "c" grade and i tried to take on a"ss" grade as it boosts you quicker , but damm these people can counter everything or just use unblockable power moves constantly. They come into a room with all lower grades so they can win win win. So NO NO NO minus achievments points would take the fun out of it.
    If you were in that same boat on doa4 where some-one was hammering you of a much better grade than you , you would be frustrated and even more so p####d off if you lost achievment points as well as zack points. :nono: :nono:

    DIRY reaches for the Off button as he's about to go down for the umpty umpth time... ;)

    Look - I'm struggling enough on my points as it is - and you want to take some away! :eek: LOL

    I'm up for this - but with a twist ;)

    You should only get points taken off if you get beaten by someone with less than you ;)
    That should keep me safe for a bit :D

    Fair enough it would have to be a fair way to take points, agreed. You could take points off the SS person for bullying a C grader :) I was just looking at the gamer card and the player had obviously put in a fair amount of effort on the game (he had the five hours play) and did not have any +ve achievements. I think for that a -ve score is fair. A zero score can be achieved just by not playing!

    whats worse now with doa4 in particular is the fact that with the last update you had the choice to reset, some high graders like SS for instance took the opportunity tobe knocked back down to a C THEN WHEN YOU GO INTO ROOMS YOUR UNDER THE IMPRESSION YOUR FIGHTING PEOPLE ON THE SAME PAR as you but they are not , then they can progress up the ladder again beating c , b , a , s graders with ease but gaining many more points . I can beat them occasionally but i think the saying is "die trying":eek:

    Another example could be if every time you take a life to do a level in graw -5 points, then give 25 points to complete the level. the net result for the level would be:

    0 lives used = 25 points
    5 lives used = 0 points
    10 lives used = -25 points.

    If you cheat on Live then they should whack some achievements points off you.
