This is my first post here and I just felt that I needed to do it so I can see how many other people think Marathon should be made obtainable for the casual gamer and what they would like to see it become.

Potential Changes for the Marathon Achievement
1. 10 - 15 Platinum Medals

2. Silver Medal or better in every tournament

3. Make it so you need to reach a total score.
You know how when you look at the global leaderboards and it shows your score. Maybe make it to get 500k or something like that.

4. Gold Medal all skill games.

5. 50 faults or less on Ultimate Endurance

OK... So I absolutely LOVE this game but it is going to drive me crazy having 160g in it forever. I have put in at least 50 hours of playing into this game, I am ranked top 300 for total score and I know for a fact that I will never get "Marathon." When someone ranked that high will never get it, the achievement becomes a bit ridiculous. And personally (knowing MANY achievement *****s like I do) an obtainable 200g = better sales. You would not believe the number of people that will not play this amazing game because they cant get 200. So please Devs. help us achievement *****s out and yourselves. : )

Please add any ideas you can think of to this list.

See I would call the Marathon Achievement the "Perfectionist" as you have to do a flawless run. Marathon Achievement should have something to do with hours played I think or distance traveled IMO.

Well it doesnt have to be the same name... I think the name can be changed in an update. And techniqally, with the name Marathon the achievement could be Drive X amount of miles or complete the Ultimate Endurance tournament 3 times in 1 sitting.

Restart count? That would be an embarrassing number for me http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_lol.gif

i would love to see a stat tracker!

time played.
distance travelled.
distance travelled on one wheel.
distance travelled in air.
time spent in air.
times restarted.
times crashed.
bones broken (total).

etc.

Would love that!

Yeah, such stats trackers are always fun. the idea made me think of a few more:

Best achieved leaderboard placement
Most faults in one game
Custom tracks played
Most played track

Platinum on all tracks will not change a lot about the achievement. That's just as hard as getting 0 faults on the ultimate endurance tournament. I'd rather have it to stay the way it is then.

No no. Getting 0 faults on Ultimate Endurance is at least....3.5X harder than getting platinum on every track.
