when do giant bomb-tied achievements update?

#1 Posted by Evercaptor (391 posts) -

Is it any particular time? I know I read it somewhere once but I can't find that info again.

It usually seems to be around midnight. I don't know the exact time though.

It's supposed to update once at some point every day, as I understand. Although, that doesn't always happen.

@SpikeSpiegel:  I always greet people with "good morning" because I guarentee you, it's morning somewhere. but that also applies for midnight... is it midnight Best or Beast coast? Also I respect your scott pilgrim pic, but being so late to the party I fear it'd look bad if I flew colours like that.
 
@JJWeatherman: I like the hat in your pic. HOLY FUCK YOU'RE ON 6999 post and about to have a goddamn BIRTHDAY
 
Behind the scenes: I actually edit in my non-sequitors because goddamn if it doesn't strike me to say something after the fact. there's a name for it though I can't remember it.

Just a fan. Been a fan ever since his hosting days on the Hotspot. Rich rocks.

Nah, lol. I know the line that separates fan and stalker. Although I won't lie, if I could go to PAX, I'd spend the entire show "in search of Rich!". Getting a picture with him would be so awesome.

@JJWeatherman:  Side-tracked, but I like this conversation. I'm a big fan of Anthony Burch. I'd have his adopted babies, and they would all wear suits. He doesn't do as much stuff visibly now that he works for gearbox now, but it makes canabalt much more fun if you imagine that's what happens when crunch makes him snap.

regarding the update, i think its around 2-3am PST Southern Cal, USA! 
not too sure on the time but I've been up that late and have seen my own profile updated.

Canabalt is exactly what happens. 
 
Oh and babies in suits? I approve.

I think it's done manually isn't it? Please correct me if Im wrong, it's just speculation considering how random it seems to be.

They do it manually so there's no exact time.  I think I've even seen it update twice in one day before.  Here on the east coast, achievement data usually updates by midnight, though again, it does vary.

Nope, it updates autoMAGICALLY! It's just super inconsistent.  
 
Oh, you mean the Whiskey guys do it manually? Yeah, that might be right. I remember hearing that at some point. Who knows now though; they're always evolving their systems.

Yeah I think they mentioned it on a bombcast ages ago when the system was first created, that's all the info I have and like you said, they have probably (hopefully) changed their methods since then.

@Evercaptor: Presuming it is still manually done Im sure its no more complicated than clicking one button. But yeah it is something that really should be done automatically if it's not already.
