This is getting more and more OT, but I will reply again Hm... if this quote is only connected to DoD it´s okay, but if not I wonder if you try to provoke. If you talk about steam games in general it is a generalisation that is wrong and due to that every information in this quote becomes invalid. Some games have achievements that have no impact on the actual game, but others have. That quote explains a lot. In addition you could call every form of progress record irrelevant, esp. scores. But they aren´t. If "normal" scores in your games increase that usually means you have become a "better player", increasing numbers of achievements usually mean the same. Just for one second try to see achievements as a form of score. I played TCG and card games in general for many years and I also played tournaments, in the games I played Promotional Cards (same cards with different artwork) and Token Cards were given away as PR, for winning or just joining it. I never played "Munchkin" so I cannot comment that, but it´s sad that normal cards were only available at tournaments. Just one thing concerning your "only reason why people are upset is that it´s posted on Steam", my steam account is "private" since I started playing steam games, even my "friends" on steam can´t see my achievements or the progress. Hopefully this gives room for thought without explaining it again.
