Travian is a game that you build and grow your empire over the course of one year and fight together with your alliance for world domination. I played a one year round in 2004, 2005 and 2008 after which I somewhat forgot about it until 2011 when Travian announced their first world championship tournament, and after reading that there were over half a million participants from a 150 countries around the world I decided to not miss out on the next tournament in 2012. Together with two friends from the 2008 round, we created an account together and brushed through the qualification rounds making it into the last 30’000 spots for the final server. Playing on this server was one of the most stressful gaming experiences I’ve ever had as it required us to be on alert 24/7 for several months, meaning that between my partner in Singapore, Houston and myself in Switzerland one player had to check in every few minutes. As the server came to its final stages, our alliance the TSE was undisputed number one and even a coalition of the top 2-6 alliances with over 200 top accounts could not stop our team of 24 accounts from winning the world championship finals 2012. As my elaborate explanation already indicates, this was my proudest achievement in gaming.
My proudest achievement was probably reaching platinum rank in League of Legends.
I spent a lot of time playing League of Legends and watching tutorials to get better, so when i finally reached platinum rank i was very happy. I did quit playing almost immediately after though.
My proudest achievement in game – and one of the greatest days of my life – happened during a game of Super Street Fighter 4. For people who’ve never met me: the fighting games are a mystery to me. My usual tactic consists in a lot of button bashing and furious stick rotating. You could actually expect the controller to be destroyed before the game’s end. So, yes, the plain truth is: I have no clue what I’m doing. With these skills, I was challenged by my boyfriend who has been playing all sorts of fighting games since his childhood. He bet that I couldn’t win against him (I can’t remember the actual bet). Against all the odds (and a few games), I won. Even a few times. No other achievement feels as amazing as this one.
The achievement I am most proud of is “Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa’s Rest”. It is an achievement in the MMORPG World of Warcraft. The achievement exists out of the player obtaining the Legendary staff “Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa’s Rest”. It took me ages doing all the quests in and outside Firelands (The raid where most of the quest line takes place). The part that makes this quest line take so long to complete is that you can only raid the Firelands once a week. Finally after completing all the quests you are rewarded with your legendary weapon given to you by a giant dragon in the middle of Orgrimmar (Capital city of the Horde). All the players in the city can see your legendary weapon getting handed to you, most of them even congratulate you. I think this is my proudest achievement because it was quite difficult to get at the time.
My proudest achievement in gaming is probably when I caught 150 Pokémon in Pokémon Yellow. I was expecting something awesome to happen (like getting a Mew) but nothing happened. The only thing you get when you got all the Pokemon is a diploma which you can print with your Gameboy printer (which I didn’t have). So yea, the achievement is pretty cool but the reward was pretty lame..
I’ll go with catching my first shiny Pokémon in Pokémon Crystal. And by that I don’t mean the Red Gyarados that everyone could catch as part of the story. I had put in a couple of hundred hours in the game already, had collected every Pokémon in the National Pokédex (including Mew & Celebi via Gameshark) and had a lot of Pokémon at level 100. After all that time, I finally managed to encounter my second shiny Pokémon, after my first one (a Shiny Heracross) had gotten away earlier in the game. My first shiny Pokémon ended up being a shiny Hoothoot, but it felt awesome having spent so much time in a game like that and getting something for it that not many people had gotten. It might not be my best achievement, but at the time it felt like the coolest thing ever so I’ll go with that.
My proudest achievement was when I got 3 “Honorable opponent”, 2 “Friendly” and 2 “Helpful” after an ARAM match in League of Legends.
Yes, I was Ryze and I carried my team! Within 28 minutes, I killed 33, only die 9 times and was the richest in the game! Since I was not as bad as usual, this victory became my proudest achievement.
