Rock Band World GOALS Thread

edited November 2013 in Rock Band Blitz
Hey Gang,

As you are hopefully aware now, we've got a sweet Facebook companion app for Rock Band Blitz! Here's a quick video primer for you in you're not in the know: http://youtu.be/FW9M5t1fti4

One big thing I'm not sure has been fully communicated as of yet is that I'll be propping new goals to the app every week. That will happen on TUESDAYS, btw, unless I somehow fall down a well on a Monday night. (note for you lucky dawgs who got codes early, our first NEW GOAL DROP will be Tuesday the 4th, not tomorrow!)

So, why I am heeeeeeeeeeeeere? I would like to solicit Goal ideas from you loverly folk here. You're the best and brightest of the HMX community, so I assume you have the coolest ideas for Goals. Maybe this will be a disgusting abject failure, but I BELIEVE IN YOUUUUUUU.

Soooooooooooooo, go!

    Goals for each active RBN authoring group with a decent-sized output, maybe? You could consult with each group to feature a mix of well-known and not-so-well-known songs/bands from each group. The bigger names would attract goal players and the smaller names would get some attention. Would be a nice way to bring out some of the hidden gems of RBN and highlight the most well-known stuff to hit the Network.

    Only other suggestion I can think of is full-album goals requiring you to play a portion of a full album available as DLC or RBN (or both if they cross over).

    Oh and I Love Rock and Roll is on the RB3 disc so it can't be used as a goal for Blitz.

    Here's an oddball question: Instead of requiring someone to actually put in new goals, why wasn't something like RB2's automatic challenge system set up? Ergo, the more DLC and exports you have, the more goals you get.

    As it stands, at some point HMX is going to get awfully tired of updating the goals (see: RB3 Harmonix Recommends listings), and that seems like a lot of wasted energy over something that could have been more or less handled automagically.

    You also run the risk of having the same (frequent) complaint from people who say "I hate , why do I have to buy and play it for this week's Goal?" As evidence, I point out that this happened quite a bit with RB3's HMX Recommends setlists.
