Looks to me like the ranks just go down. Like instead of 1 to 100...it's 100 to 1. I'm assuming 100 because there's one achievement to get past 75, so who knows?

still by the looks of the achievement "get online form (rank) 1" doesnt give much hope. the name "world beater" doesn't help either.

the ranks do seem to go down but i don't know if that's a max level like gears rank 100 or if that's rank 1 on the leaderboards

TBH, those achievement will way HEAVILY on my decision to buy the game. there are tons of games coming out, Blur looks very good also but has easier achievements. if this game has some stupid impossible leaderboard achievements then im not getting this game.

Does anyone know what the reference of 1,081 miles is? I assume it's in reference to a movie or another game?

Hey, to all those that are worried about these ranked achievements, I think this article (http://uk.gamespot.com/xbox360/driving/untitledblackrockprojectworkingtitle/news.html?sid=6257063&mode=previews) will shed some light on it.

Towards the end it says:
"There's also a racing number, which is essentially an overall ranking that gauges your skill--the better you drive, the lower your number will be (with number one being the best rank of all). Split/Second developers told us that you can improve your ranking even if you aren't winning races."

So you don't have to reach the top of the leaderboards for the achievement :woop:

On a side note, in the same paragraph:
"any achievements you earn in the game will show up as decals on the car you're driving in a race"

Cool idea :)

Edit:
I was wrong about this. googling 1081 miles comes up with a story about Lands End to John O' Groats, so I just assumed that was it, still a mystery. :confused:

Just a statement to the online ranks:

I just finished 3 races on my PS3.
1. race: 4th out of 7 - rank was still 99 (the lowest)
2. race: 1st out of 7 - rank went up to 92
3. race: 5th out of 8 - rank decreased to 93

Maybe you gain more points, if there are more ppl with higher ranks (6 of the 7 other guys also started with 99 and only one had a rank of 1).

So you have to win kind of some race to get to Nr. 1.
And as you might already noticed: Your rank can decrease, if you finish 4th or worse...
So... it's not really like stated above, that your rank even increases without winning... you still have to finish min. 3rd...

Also: It's kind of luck-based, if you win a race or not...
In my 3rd race i was 1st for the first 2 laps and then someone crashed me near the finish and so i was 5th -.-
That's y i wont get this game 4 my xbox... i hate luck-shit ;)

LOL someone that caused you to crash on the line is not luck based to end up 5th. thats bad driving.

I think I found a consistent way to get Eliminator Efficiency. On Airplane graveyard, hang at the back of the pack and build up meter till you have 1 bar. The first power play you see, wait a second for all the cars to get near it and activate it. The rocks will pretty much wreck the entire pack of cars. An opponent will most likely have triggered the upcoming shortcut already, and you have enough time to go through it for a free shortcut. After that, you'll have like a 5 second lead and you just have to stay in front the rest of the race and activate every shortcut.

Hey, i have only one cheevo left..the "Wreck 1000 enemys" thing..i have a total of about 750 wrecks, but its really boring to do alle the wrecks -.-*

playing online is great, but you cant wreck a lot of enemys. playing offline is boring :D

so: the fastest method to gain wrecks is for me playing the dam-course in quickplay. i gain 15-20 wrecks in one run (~5min playing).

is there any method to get this much quicker or is my method already the best?

hope u can help me ;)

most of the achievements are easy, but the occasional few can trip you up. at least if i got the right game

I noticed that when you check all retail games this game is still missing from the list but clearly it exists... wondering why isn't it on the list... possibly just a php error?
