Peripheral company Roccat is releasing its Savu gaming mouse, and with all of the fancy accoutrements of gaming mice, the Savu is bringing its own set of achievements. Yes, you can now get achievements for mouse movement and number of clicks.

However, what isn’t your standard gaming mouse feature is the Roccat Achievements Display — acronym intended — that incorporates achievements into using your mouse. No, it doesn’t have a set of its own achievements for different games, but it has a set of its own achievements for being used.

Actually, a new game for every 10,000 clicks wouldn't be too bad. thinking.gif

Being told when you've clicked 2 billion times or whatever is kinda neat and I don't see this making the mouse worse in any way. Really, there's no downside as long as you don't have to "press all buttons 100 times to unlock DPI changing".

They do actually give you rewards for doing these achievements though. That's what makes them so enticing to me.

It's in their original press release.

"hands out trophies"

What exactly do the achievements give you? This idea is actually interesting and I'm intrigued what my statistics might be. I used to play scout (tf2) competitively and so I've gotten used to having a very slow movement speed and I'm interested in seeing the kinds of achievements and stats I'd produce during a really intense match at slow sense. Sounds fun/interesting. What kind of specifications to the achievements have? Any info on that?

None yet. Although, there are plenty of programs you can use if you want to get physical rewards for playing games.
One of the most popular ones is Jact.
