Alot of people are upset for a long time about all the historical achievments and achievment points they missed out during LS1 and LS2. I have been thinking of ways of how we would be able to introduce these back and i found one simple possible solution. Since LS1 will most likely not come back, there is no way to introduce the achievments connected to it however we can introduce the achievment points which those achievments had.
DAILY HISTORICAL ACHIEVMENTS
These achievment, just like normal dailies would have a cap. The cap would be the exact number of total available achievment points, which belong under historical achievments. Soo that includes whole LS1, all past festivals, WvW seasons, pvp and other historical achievments like mini collections, tips etc.
Every player would already have progress towards that cap. All of the historical points the player has achieved would be turned into these daily historical points instead. So if the cap is.. lets say: 4650 ap (idk what the current cap is since efficiency doesnt show it anymore) and the player achieved a total of 2329 historical achievment points, he could get another 2321 points from historical dailies.
A player would be able to get "X" amount of achievment points every day doing these historical dailies. During festivals, there would be some extra available, getting 1 point for every festival daily done (this was also the case in the past, it went towards normal dailies though).
How would the historical dailies look like ?
Well, they would be connected to past events, mainly LS1. The player would need to do 3 different historical dailies to get the daily ap.
Here are a few dailies i quickly came up with:
To make these dailies even more appealing, for every daily done you would get a "History token". These tokens could be later traded for Season 1 Memory Boxes or some other items from the past.
The only thing worrysome might be that some people would be unhappy about their past progress and effort put into those achievments. The people that achieved over 90,80,70%... of total historical ap would get some special titles, memory boxes idk. But since the number of people that have all historical achievments is most likely less than 10 (possibly only 1 person has all?) they should be already satistied being able to finaly get the missing points.
Well, thats it. I belive this could solve at least 1 problem regarding LS1 and make alot of achievment hunters happy. This could possibly also revive the "competitive" scene when it comes to ap hunting.
