Laserforce extends player achievement awards for COVID-19
Global operator developer and manufacturer of laser tag equipment Laserforce, based in Brisbane, Australia, has announced an update to its Laserforce Achievement awards.
With its support and development teams continuing to work behind the scenes, Laserforce plans to ensure that when players return after the COVID-19 crisis, they are greeted with an uninterrupted version of their player Achievement awards.
“This probably wasn’t the first thing you worried about during quarantine but we’re here to make sure your Laserforce laser tag return is successful!” the company said in a recent release.
According to Laserforce, the achievement awards are key to the brand’s success and its repeat playability. The initiative incentivises players to collect awards for a range of skill or play based activity. Some of these awards are based on the number or frequency of games played over a consecutive period of time.
Laserforce International will update a number of awards to ensure players maintain the continuity of gameplay that may have been impacted due to Covid-19, which has affected more than 360 operating Laserforce locations around the world.
The “Achievement Progress Protection” will update the following awards to ensure continuity:
- Back To Back- Play 2 months in a row.
- Tic-Tac-Toe – Play 3 months in a row.
- Check Your Six – Play 6 months in a row.
- No Rest For The Wicked – Play every month for a year.
- Like A Comic Book Villain –Play every month for 2 years.
- There’s No Turning Back Now- Play every month for 5 years.
- Practice Makes Perfect –Play every month for 10 years.
Along with its extensive list of global achievement awards, locally some locations have also created their own unique local awards. Laserforce encourages any operator with their own custom achievements to review any time continuity based awards.
Laserforce operators should note, the “Achievement Progress Protection” changes being made by Laserforce will keep players continuous gameplay intact provided:
- The players’ most recent game (before lockdown) was in 2020.
- The site must load the fix before any players play again (after lockdown has been relaxed).
- The player must play their next game (after lockdown is relaxed) before the end of 2020.
“Laserforce is acutely aware that in the scheme of things that this update may seem minor to some, but we want to ensure our players are not put at a disadvantage due to these circumstances. Operators will receive notification of the fix along with instructions,” the company explained.
