  1. Add milestones - goals to achieve before your epic win

    I prefer to keep my "epic win" as a longer term goal (so I don't have to re-create quests, power-ups, etc. that I customize), but to set milestones along the way... shorter goals to achieve toward the epic win. This would fall between a quest and an epic win.

    • Multiple Epic Wins?

      Can you have more than one Epic Win? Mine is really two-in-one and would be nice if I could make them separate. But if not, it still works. Thanks!

      • Linking quests to bad guys

        Sometimes I do a quest and don't realise it's connected to a bad guy or other. It would be help to have something like a pop up that asks if I battled the bad guy to. Also there are some challenges that don't actually have an action so I'm left not knowing if I've done it or not.

        • Having more than one epic win?

          There are really (at least) 2 different epic wins I'm striving for but I'm not really using SuperBetter for one of them because they are categorically different and this doesn't seem to allow for two epic wins at the same time anyhow. I can tell that SuperBetter is moving me rapidly towards my goals in the one area and the other life goal I have is falling behind because- well, it's maybe not quite as fun without superbetter... Realistically people are working on a few major life challenges at a time... This is just my two cents.

          • I miss the custom challenges

            Seeing a specific challenge helps me focus on what I am getting superbetter at. The categories are helpful for grouping users together, but could you add an option to create your own challenge for users who don't fit in those boxes?

            • The Epic Win BullPen

              An area to store your roster of Epic Wins, so you can load the next one up immediately after your next glorious victory!

              I believe it's important to work on only ONE Epic Win at a time, as the system is built for. Multitasking detracts from progress, however attractive it may seem to accomplish more than one EW at a time!

              I love to plan for the future, use future boosts, and keep my mind focused on what I want to achieve. And I think the BullPen, like Future Boosts, is great for this, but on a higher level, much…

              • assign rewards to epic wins

                I'd like to be able to assign meaning to my epic wins - for example, if we could set a reward that pops up when the win is achieved. Right now I don't seem to get anything for winning - just the ability to set a new goal, but no reason to savour the win.

                • Just a thank you!

                  This might not be the right place for this but, I saw your Ted Talk today and I have been feeling down, frustrated and upset for the past few days for various reasons that I won't bore you with, but the video really inspired me and brought a smile to my face. I got an account on SuperBetter. I couldn't think of anyone better to send my first Thank You achievement to than you. So, thank you to everyone involved with this project! Please keep up the wonderful work that you do and remember that you rock!

                  Brad

                  • Progress Bar for levels

                    You know how in WoW there are progress bars that show how far along you are to leveling up, or gaining rep with a faction? I would like to see something like that with the levels in SuperBetter. I'm currently in level 9, but I don't know how far to 10.

                    • Different categories for epic wins (with example)

                      For instance, I have 2 medium/longer term goals that are not in the same category: 1) being confident going into final exams, and 2) achieve my weekly exercise target for 3 months.

                      In cases like this, I don't have to achieve one first to achieve another. Rather, I would like to pursue them at the same time, and pursuing one probably helps pursuing another (e.g. exercising helps with clearing my mind and improving efficiency).

                      Any feedback or reasoning why this wouldn't be a good idea is also appreciated.

                      Thank you for this awesome game!

                      • More than one epic win!

                        I usually pursuit more than one goal. For several reasons. First I don't like to focus on only one thing - I think you get to narrow minded. Second, if you have more than one epic win - there is more chance of progress which makes you happier! :)

                        • Side quests: Things you want to accomplish, which have their own challenges, that are also tough.

                          The existing quests are one-offs. Side quests would lead you to your epic win, but have their own win. For example: I'm battling depression. My first epic win is to clean my room and do my laundry. I also want to quit smoking. Quitting smoking would help me connect to more people, and help with my sense of alienation and help me feel less depressed. Smoking however has it's own challenges (some related some not) and is a win in and of itself.

                          • Epic Win Points?

                            I achieved my Epic Win today and, while it is an achievement that I'm proud of in and of itself, I was surprised that I didn't get any resilience points, level changes, or anything. I thought, in Beta, we got points or something.

                            • Add Ability to Make Epic Wins SMART

                              In the Epic Win section of the website, it's not very convenient to create and record SMART (i.e. specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, time-bound) goals, particularly the measurable and time-bound parts, which are missing completely. Also, the ability to see our previously achieved epic wins could help build momentum, similar to Jerry Seinfeld's streak tracking.

                              Adding this would be awesomely helpful!

                              • The basis behind choosing your epic win - gaining allies with common goals

                                I watched Jane McGonigal's TED talk where she talks about saving the world with gaming and thought it was fascinating. I'd like to make my epic win something very meaningful but right now it's very general (get better in all four of the resilience categories) which makes it hard to really see my progress.

                                I think it would be great if you could befriend (become allies with) enough people on SuperBetter that had common goals and you could all work together and help each other get to where you want to get.

                                Just like WoW or some other game, you…

                                  My epic win statement is too long and doesn't get expanded completely anywhere, not even on its dedicated page which has room to spare. (The page with the I did this button.) I'd like to see the full extent of my goal please!

                                    • Confirm epic win

                                      When you complete a quest, a power-up, or a bad guy, you have a screen to confirm. I have now accidentally clicked on my epic win twice and been congratulated for a misclick. Please make us confirm that it's actually done.

                                      • Transform "So I can..." space to be framed as "Super Powers"

                                        We've created glowing identities and identified our epic wins. The "So I can..." would feel stronger and more, well, EPIC if this heading were called "Super Powers". For instance, my epic win is "sleeping better". Instead of, "So I can... fall asleep more quickly", how about "Super Power: Falling asleep in the space of a heartbeat!"

                                        • there's no such thing as 'just' superbetter

                                          I think that the 'challenge' option 'i'm just getting SuperBetter' should have the 'just' removed. It sounds disparaging
