  • Why did Valve create the "Gallery of Triumphs" instead of achievements ?


    I feel that the Gallery is a bit redundant with the concept of achievements. As everyone know, there is no achievement related to Dota 2 yet in steam, but the system is widely used by other games. Moreover, the concept of trophies is very similar to achievements, so I think it is an error of design to create this new section (instead of using the steam feature).

    What I think Valve should do :
    - Turn every possible trophy into Achievements.
    - Validate achievements according with trophies already owned by players.
    - Create a section for achievements no longer obtainable, something like Legacy Achievements (similar to World of Warcraft), for achievements like Compendium levels, Fantasy Leagues, etc...
    - Remove the "Gallery of Triumphs" section and replace it with a easy to click icon to open achievements.

    Feel free to give feedback.

    At this very moment there are several ways of tricking Steam Achievements. The Gallery of Triumphs was created so you can share your achievements with fellow Dota 2 players without any chance of cheating.

    Yeah, you can't add those trophies to your Steam profile, but they offer more flexibility than those achievements. For example: achievement for victory predictions has 3 stages of 3, 6 and 9. Achievements won't be able to show if you've done better than that.

      I think main problem is that steam achievements don't support adding/removing/editing achievements for games afaik, other games have this problem as well when new content is added. I might be wrong tho, this may have changed.
