Mandatory Tutorial

I have created a new account, the name is #Just25kThings. My plan was to play maps such as A Diverse World and A Pinpointable World and the like, to continue working on getting 25k scores in every game.

I created an account previous to this also, (not the #Just25kThings account) and clicked into the tutorial, figuring it wouldn't matter towards the score. I 5k'd each of the 3 locations easily, then found out that it was a singular game and it was equal to a 15,000 score game, which is pointless for what I am trying to accomplish.

On the new #Just25kThings account, I figured I would just simply ignore the tutorial messages and go into maps, however I cannot even get into maps, even with a Pro account, which I have already paid for.

Is there a way to simply get rid of the tutorial message popping up so I can play as normal? I'm a very experienced player, and this is just a fun account that I want to play as a 25k only account.

P.S. I suggest possibly making the tutorial 5 rounds, as they are easy rounds anyway, and it will let people know that the game is 5 rounds.

  • Hi

    Can you not just complete the tutorial? Then you would be able to play as per use.

    If not, then send me the User-ID so I can have a further look from my end.

  • Well as I said the tutorial would put a single game on the account with a score of 15,000 points. I'm hopefully looking to have the account as a 25,000 only score account.

    Account name: #Just25kThings

  • To be honest, I just thought the tutorial wouldn't have counted to the stats whatsoever, that's why I did it on the first try. If it didn't count, I guess we wouldn't have this problem haha.

  • Yeah we are not able to remove that option, the tutorial is mandatory for new accounts to complete. And its for new players to get rewarded for the easy locations in the beginning.
    Filip
  • So you're telling me my steps are this:

    - Do a forced 3-game tutorial, giving me a gamescore of 15,000
    - Get 25,000 score in 19999 games to raise my average gamescore to 25,000
    - Yay, I now have a 25,000 gamescore average

    I tell you what, for someone who has platinum on three accounts, who has streamed this game for basically two years and has always tried to improve the playability of the community where I could (see minimum distance), this is fairly disappointing.

    I personally think it could be such an easy fix. Either by:

    1- Adding two more rounds to the tutorial. They are so simple, a monkey could do them at this point. Or..
    2- Just have it so that the tutorial doesn't count towards your score on your profile, which is what I thought was going to happen in the first place.

    I really am just trying to help here, as with what I did with the minimum distance post in the past. Personally, I feel tutorials shouldn't be mandatory, but hey, if you guys want them to be done, then you do you.

  • I can understand the pickle.

    We do not plan on adding more points to the tutorial at the moment since it is not intended to be 5 rounds to reach 25k, but just to get use to the controllers and movement.

    Will see if we can add something to remove the actual score to count towards the avg one.
    Filip
  • Cheers. Let me know if/when you do. Got a year of pro sitting there on the account ready to go. Thanks for understanding mate. Have a nice day.
    OfficialTiggy
  • Yepp, will get back to you in case its an easy fix for this account to remove the tutorial or remove the potential score. 👍
    Filip
  • So we have a workaround for now, if you play a challenge on a map the tutorial wont trigger as a popup, it will just be left as a "incomplete" banner on the homepage.

    We will look into this as a bigger discussion in the team if it should count towards avg-score moving forward, but might take some time to see what the result of that would be.
    Filip
  • So just send a challenge from my other account and play through that and we should be good?
    OfficialTiggy
  • Yepp should work 👍
    Filip
  • Go for 25k!
    Filip
  • Haha welp, I'm in a game, so that's a plus. I'm heading to bed soon, so I'll do it tomorrow. Will see how the popup goes and whether I can get into a game after that. Will report back after I do it tomorrow. Worse comes to worse, can just keep challenging myself until you get a fix for the tutorial score.

  • Yepp lemme know! 🙂
    Filip
  • Hey mate. Just finished a quick Pinpointable World challenge on the #Just25kThings account. Not popping up with any tutorial notifications anymore. Cheers for the workaround. Much appreciated.

  • Sweeet glad it was "sorted" 😀
    Filip
  • No idea if you will still see this still Filip. Attempting to get all the badges on my main account. Unfortunately that involves doing the tutorial bahaha. I attempted to copy the tutorial link across, but it won't let me guess. Sad times. 🙁 I have no idea what Voyager/Champion badges mean by their description, but I realize that some badges are meant to be vague by design, so who knows.
    OfficialTiggy
  • Voyager/Champion are the ones which players got when we introduced Career in October last year. So if they were Bronze/Silver or Gold at that time.

    Have started to update the copy for all badges (Explorer mode ones now). So will update the rest soon as well. 🙂
    Filip
  • So, I just hit Master after doing this weekend league thingy, should I get those badges?

    Ah so it's just a matter of time for them to update? How will the tutorial work for those that didn't do it? Do we just automatically get the badge?
    OfficialTiggy
  • No these ones were rewarded when we introduced Career in October 2021 when we switched to the Metropolitan divisions etc. So they are not able to be awarded now. Nope, the tutorial will not be rewarded if someone did not do it. I will hide all of these though so that users that cannot get em, wont be able to see them.
    Filip
  • Nevermind, tutorial is gone now from the badge list.
    OfficialTiggy
  • Yeppers, hid the other one as well.
    Filip
  • Oh, so Voyager/Champion are literally badges I cannot get. Well that's not ideal bahaha. So you're hiding Voyager/Champion along with Tutorial (which is gone)? Or will that sit there?
    OfficialTiggy
  • Oh god, I am dumb. Thanks! Just gotta do a month of dailies and 2,500 and 5,000 expeditions. Nothing too hard eh 😉
    OfficialTiggy
  • Let's hope we don't need this thread for anything else Sir Filip 😉 bahaha, have a great day mate. Thanks again.
    OfficialTiggy
  • Yepp I hid the Voyager/Champion/Explorer one from the previous updates. Haha no worries mate! Glad it was sorted 😀
