One of the cool things we’re doing in Diesel Tactics with achievements is that they unlock titles for you to use which your opponent will see when they’re playing against you. It’s another way to customize your persona in addition to your avatar. For example, as soon as you hit the 1800 mark for your Elo rating, you unlock the title ‘Major’. So, if you wanted to use that title and your username was “Malaise” your name would display to other users as “Major Malaise”!
There are essentially two ways to unlock titles: reaching a given Elo rating and completing achievements. Your Elo rating works similarly to Go, Chess, or League of Legends, where the more skilled the opponent you beat, the more your rating moves up and vice versa. Attaining certain ratings permanently unlocks titles for you to use, so you can intimidate opponents with titles only available to skilled players!
Aside from your rating, achievements that you unlock also provide you with a new title that you can use if you want. Here’s some of the achievements that we’re looking at using as of right now, though this list is subject to change!
The format is: “Achievement Name” – What you need to do to get the achievement – “Title unlocked”
“First Blood” – Win a game – “Ring Knocker”
“Bug Out” – Surrender a game – “Général” (is that offensive?)
“Grease Monkey” – Field and win with an all vehicle army – “Grease Monkey”
“For the Fatherland!” – Win 5 games with Kaiserreich Nation – “Alleyman”
We’re going to have a ton of achievements and titles, so I think everyone should be able to find a title that they like!
If you’ve got any thoughts or suggestions we’d love to hear them, so let us know!
