I have been in the best squad on all 3 maps but it hasn't unlocked, I went through it twice on every map and still no luck, any ideas people?

Thanks.

Edit: This Achievement is infact 'Glitched', please post at the official forums aswell as here so that the guys at DiCE can sort this out for us, here is the thread I started there:-

http://forums.electronicarts.co.uk/battlefield-1943/735901-xbox-360-best-squad-achievement-glitched.html

Oh and here to:-

http://forums.electronicarts.co.uk/battlefield-1943/735529-official-bugs-glitches-found-thread-2.html

EDIT 2:-

GOOD NEWS! A DICE EMPLOYEE OVER AT THE OFFICIAL BATTLEFIELD 1943 FORUMS SAYS THAT THEY ARE NOW LOOKING INTO IT.

Edit 3:-

If you want the achievement but it wont unlock then play the game without being in a squad, this has worked for so many people including myself.

No I'm not wrong thank-you very much, It just won't unlock for me, I have been in the best squad whilst on the winning team on all three maps and I did it again but still no luck.

Ok well like i said its not glitched people have it.

Do this:

Go into your stats and awards and see if you have the badge for it,if you do its glitched,if you dont your wrong.

4 on Guadacanel.

The patch is for top squad on each map TWICE. People need to learn to read. The OP is right, I've been in the Top Squad on Wake Island twice, Iwo-Jima once and Guadalacanal once or twice. Still no achievement.

I think you need to learn to read there buddy.

I know the patch is for doing it twice,hench the fact why i told him to check if he had it,becuase if he did,then without a doubt his achievement was glitched and seeing as how he doesnt have it,i told him to keep playing.

I was kind of wondering the same thing. I've at least been in the Best Squad for two of the maps, but I guess I'm still missing Iwo Jima. Oh, well. Still need to work on 100 games anyway, so is it really a big deal? hahaha.

Same problem here, it says that I'm in the top squad at the end in almost every game, in half of them I have the most points, but I don't have this achievement yet. I even got already Tour of Duty I, and not the Best Squad. In my rewards I have only one Best Squad badge got at the beginnig and not one since.

Strongbow
07-08-2009, 11:11 PM
Well just been round them all with a friend, he got the achievement and I didn't, so this is definitely glitched.

SixtyeightState
07-08-2009, 11:44 PM
I just got the achievement on Guadacanal

...and I wasn't even in a squad. So to be honest I rly do think this achievement is kinda glitched, cos I'm not sure I've ever won on Wake Island. Meh... atleast I got it.

Strongbow
07-08-2009, 11:50 PM
Just gone round once again getting best squad lol becuase the map rotation is in two's I did them twice, oh and this time it was a private squad.

Sixtyeightstate, thanks for posting, so it is glitched then, the damb thing is I didn't even get the patch.

Yeah, no problem. You should try to contact DICE or EA and see what's up. I know they have a twitter, maybe you could message them about it thru that.

*edit*
Or maybe you can try going to these forums : http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/categories/show/33.page

I got the achievement playing by myself. I had the most points of both teams, and my name wasn't in top squad since I was by myself so I don't know.

ITD Soldierboy
07-09-2009, 12:22 AM
Alright so from what I've heard, nobody actually ever got it legit. I posted this on xbox, and pretty much the same. Those that got it, got it randomly.

Looks like above all this mess with the servers and connections, theres also a glitched achievement.

EDIT: I believe that the servers are causing this mess. Hopefully once the servers are back to normal, so will our achievements?

i have been top squad on all three maps but overall our team didn't win. I't mighr mean you'r team has to win and you need to be top squad or it's just glitched.

UCB Disco
07-09-2009, 07:14 AM
I actually unlocked this achievement after getting one kill in like my 20th game. I was like, "What the crap?!", because I was already wondering why I didn't have the achievement yet. Now I'm wondering HOW I got the achievement. hahaha. Maybe just a delay in the unlocking.

MaximDane
07-09-2009, 07:22 AM
Perhaps the description on the achivement itself is incorrect? I noticed some inconsistances in the Top Squad listings in the end of the games...so im not sure its glitched , i think it might be gained for something else then beeing in top squad an all three maps....

07-09-2009, 09:19 AM
Yeah the achievement's glitched. I actually got mine on a losing battle on the Guancanals map (LOLSPELLING), and I wasn't even in a squad. I'm pretty sure I did nothing special to be on top of the match's leaderboards, either.

Luckily, 100 games is a lonng way off. If your lucky you'll unlock it by then.

I got this allong with Pacific campaign achievement... lol...

Same here.

It's not glitched, jsut the wrong description.

You have to get best squad on all 3 maps as both sides. Making it so you need to get it 6 times total.

I got it last night, we got best squad 8 times in a row, Iwo, Guada, Iwo, and them after doing both sides of Wake we got it.

No you have to join a squad yourself.

I had wondered why this hadn't popped up for me just yet. Think I will have to give not being in a squad a go as that seems like it works for some people. Otherwise I'm sure I will get it during the 100games anyway.

sneh
07-09-2009, 02:55 PM
Mine seemed glitched, but then came good. I had the patch, and had made sure I'd been top squad on every map more then twice but didnt get it. Then I joined a game, got a kill, got a flag cap, I would have been lucky to be in there for 3mins before the game ended and the achievement popped.

WampisPL
07-09-2009, 03:23 PM
Just tried to play without a team and it finally worked! So just join a game, press A and play on all the maps alone doing your best, hopefully you will get it.
So maybe it's not glitched, it's "glitched" for people who really want to get it and always try to be in the best team instead of pressing A and playing.

ITD Soldierboy

Thanks for the conformation mate, so from the start of this thread of me being wrong and the achievement not being glitched to me being right and the achievement being glitched.

Anyway keep trying people, good luck with it!

Yep its glitched, went through each map with Top Squad (with same people) at least once for each and didn't unlock. This sucks, because other than this achievement, I only have Tour of Duty II. Hopefully it will be fixed or it will appear randomly.

look at the awards
All the awards are diffrent from achievements despite of same names...

For people who still have trouble: check your number of Best Squad awards, I had only one, than after getting achievement 4, so you will not be able to get the achievement if you still have the same number of awards.

Sogeman
07-09-2009, 05:34 PM
I didn't get it yet. But I don't think you need to win. The best squad is the best of both teams (i think, didn't pay much attention). I think you just have to be 9 times in the best squad. 3 per map.

Those who have it should just check if they got the award, if yes they are the same

NOTE: We are talking about the ACHIEVEMENT not the in game AWARD. So don't say how to get the in game award.

Have you even read the posts in this topic. People are getting the achievement mid-game or at the end of a game after not even being in a squad. So read a little before you start calling people "stupid."

Great, now the Dice Employee is telling me that I'm wrong, this is what he said :-

"The requirement is "Be the best in the squad on all three maps". Not "Be in the best squad on all three maps"

Even though on Xbox.com it says:-

Best Squad
Be in the best squad on all three maps

So I don't know what to think now.....

07-09-2009, 08:29 PM
i have this achievement and have never joined up as a squad with anybody.

i honestly think that you have to be in the top 5 players in all the maps not in the top squad, even if it says to be in the top squad. that is the only reasonable way that i got the achievement.

The achievements not glitched. There's a problem communicating with the server at the end of match so it displays you as the best team when your not.

If you get a badge you're the best squad otherwise it's just a server error.

When I played with 3 of my friends, I counted our score together and it was way more than any other four people could have scored, we added up our scores about 6 times and the best squad was ours to be had on each map, our points were miles ahead of the other guys playing on both sides....

Like someone said earlier..... looking at the www.battlefield1943.com (http://www.battlefield1943.com) description of this achivement the description says "Be in the best squad three times on each map"

This is not the postcards description but the description for the achivement on that page... I have noticed that even if you dont join a squad and stick by yourself it will even count you as beeing in a squad although its just you in that squad so you can get it that way to.

I dont think this achivement is glitched so much as the description on it beeing totally FUBAR....

My two cents....everyones seems to be able to get it, they just dont know how most of the time......... because it sure isnt the way the description says ;)

Well I can confirm that I only got the best squad once on Iwo-Jima and got the achievement being on the best squad. Sniped someone running across across the scope with a headshot by complete fluke just a second before the game ended (didn't even see him before put scope on) and then up popped 2 achievements for 30g. These were the Best Squad and Pacific Campaign (1 win on each map), had the best squad on the other 2 maps at least 8 times each but for some reason only played on Iwo-Jima 3 times now so was 1st win and 1st best squad.

Hope you guys get your achievements. :)

I have never been in a squad and randomly unlocked the achievement when completing Iwo-Jima and i didn't even get in the top 5 players...

It's bizarre, i guess it's some sort of client syncing issue regarding the scores? Seeing as how there is obvious server issues at the moment, syncing must be having a heck of a time trying to keep up.

I just got the achievement after getting top squad on Guadalcanal. 100% sure i've had top squad on all 3 maps atleast 3 times but it took forever to unlock, it does seem bugged. +I don't have the squad postcard yet so that seem a bit iffy too.

I think its pretty safe to say that you have a better chance to unlock it if you dont play in a squad, at least for now. When I first started I had no idea how to join a squad so I played by myself and got 2 of those "best squad" patches in the reward section. Then I started playing in squads and got none of them even though I was in the best squad nearly every time. Last night I started playing by myself again and got on the top 5 in 4 of 4 matches and I recieved 3 more of those patches.

Ill try playing more by myself again today and see if it unlocks

Great, now the Dice Employee is telling me that I'm wrong, this is what he said :-

"The requirement is "Be the best in the squad on all three maps". Not "Be in the best squad on all three maps"

Even though on Xbox.com it says:-

Best Squad
Be in the best squad on all three maps

So I don't know what to think now.....

If this is true, then I only need Guadacanal. I just got Wake Island and Iwo Jima as the best in squad and best squad in a row once again.

Also something weird happened earlier today. I joined a match and I got one kill and the game ended, and I was in the best squad even though I only had 1 kill and was by myself. I guess I was in the only squad in the game.

07-11-2009, 02:55 AM
I had made sure that I was in the top squad in each map and it didn't unlock. Then while just playing I was 3rd or 4th top score and it unlocked for me at the end of a match (I had the last kill of that round). And I wasn't even in a squad that time.

I just got this achievement a few hours ago.

I had won on all 3 maps in the best squad at least once but it didn't unlock. I played 6 more matches, 2 on each map, and got in the top 5 (without a squad) on all of them. I was number 5 in the top 5 on Guadacanal and got the achievement.

My best bet is if your not getting this go solo and shoot for the top 5.

BlindxLink
07-11-2009, 10:43 AM
I also don't have this.

I've tried several things to get this, try getting top squad without being in the top players section as well, going solo, getting top everything. It's just complicated and should be fixed..

Anyway, here's some pictures i just took showing proof.

According to my stats sheet, I have been "Best Squad" 19 times. Whenever I join a match I always click B to join an available squad. Then I put it out of my mind because there is no point trying to coordinate with random people who are all running in different directions. (You have to love the 8 teammates who all stand around on the carrier waiting for an airplane...) My method of joining and forgetting seems to have worked because I have the achievement!

Strongbow
07-11-2009, 02:28 PM
Right I just got the achievement after playing a few games without being in a squad, I got loads of squad patches aswell on my own, I wasn't in the top 5 players and the achievement popped up half way through the game.

So my advice would be the same as many others, just don't play in a squad.

Good luck guys, I will still be looking into it for those that don't have it yet and thanks to the other guys posting how they got it, big help that was.

Cheers!

Ok just got into a match that ended 2 minutes later. I wasn't in a squad and near the bottom of the list and got it afterwards.

Verdict: don't play in a squad till you get it and just play like always it will come.

After that I had my best round yet with 17 Kills, 400 points, 4 earned stamps and 1st overall place with 100 points difference (9 or so MG kills on Wake Island Airport @ the entrance) they just kept coming and I just kept shooting. I'm not really good at this game but that was a rush :woop: First timeI used the rifle and I think I will keep on using it

Sorry to hear that it's glitched for some. It popped on day one after I finished top on all three maps. I was in a squad with three of my clan members. Maybe it requires you to be in a four-man squad when you search for a game. We grouped up before we entered the game.

I still haven't got it yet, but for some reason I joined a guy on my friend's list, and he said it unlocked for him mid-game right when I joined his squad... weird. Also I have 11 top squad awards, but it's not a big deal, it will unlock one way or another on my way to 100. Just bizarre that my friend got it when I joined him.

glitched for me as ive counted how many times ive been in top squads and its 2 times on each map so far. but the weird thing is i only have the top squad stamp 3 times, not 6.
anyone else who with this achievement glitched have a lower number of squad stamps than they should have?

...and I wasn't even in a squad. So to be honest I rly do think this achievement is kinda glitched, cos I'm not sure I've ever won on Wake Island. Meh... atleast I got it.

Same thing happened with me. I think I was in 5th place on my team and the achievement popped at the end of the match (got the milkrun achievement then as well). Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, hell it was a pleasant surprise.

According to DiCE it's not broken, one DiCE employee told me that I was reading it wrong and it infact said "Be the Best IN your squad on each map" but then I explained that is not what it says on Xbox.com which said "Be In The Best Squad On Each Map" he then told me that he was mixed up and it's actually the servers that are messed up saying you are in the top squad when you are not, to wich I replied why are people including myself unlocking it mid match and not in a squad and he didn't reply.

So it looks like they are doing f**k all about it I'm afraid.

I've been playing a ton, and could not get the Best Squad ach (I was top player and in best squad on all 3 maps numerous times). After reading this thread, ON MY VERY NEXT GAME, I left the squad I was in, and didn't even do particularly well. My team lost, and at the conclusion of that, got the ach.

So, I think once you've gotten Best Squad on all 3 maps and won the maps, just play a game (or the majority of it) outside of a squad and hopefully it will pop for you.

Do this:

I have no idea why you all think its 'glitched', it was one of the first achievements me and friends got and everyone I know hasn't had a problem with it.

Prehaps because it is glitched? Just because you have it doesn't mean it's not glitched. Glitched doesn't mean no one can get it, it just means the requirement isn't working correctly. And it is NOT working correctly.

I just noticed something though... prehaps the best squad section at the end of the round is wrong? I've been paying more attention lately. I noticed pretty much any squad I was in, was best squad. So when I played with no squard I noticed people would get in Best Squad that is 1 single person with 0 kills and 10 score. Then I got in best squad with about 5th best on the server when I know the other team, which won, had a squad. I saw them spawn from them and that's the only way to do that. So maybe we just think we're geting best squad when we really aren't. Which would explain why clans and people who are in squads alot seem to get it easily.

EDIT: and funny enough, now I have another best squad stamp after the scenario I just mentioned. So... something is broken bad then. It looks like you get best squad (that will actually count) more often when not in a squad.

EDIT 2: Ok I just got it. If you're trying for this do not join a squad. I literally just got it after playing all 3 maps, not in a squad, and not on the top squad board at the end. Actually... top squad was blank when I got it.

07-15-2009, 07:36 AM
mine popped up when i got a +5 assist while riding machine gunner on a tank.

my thinking is that you have to be top squad during any point of a round on each map. and not necassarily at the end of the round on the stats screen. which the stamp doiesnt even pop up for that.

I was disappointed when I was finally in the top squad on Iwo Jima and Wake Island last night, after being in the top squad on Guadalcanal the day before, and the Best Squad Achievement didn't unlock. :(

I wonder if we're misinterpreting the Achievement:

Achievement: Best Squad - Be the Best Squad on all three maps

In-game lifetime award: Best Squad - Be the best squad on each map three times (not to be confused with the single game Best Squad award, which I've only got x2 despite seeing myself in the Top Squad on all three maps)

Does it therefore mean you have to get the Best Squad lifetime award on each map to get the Achievement, so three Best Squads per map?

I've just seen this on EA's UK forums:

It was mentioned by a DICE rep in an earlier post on the subject, the description for the achievment is incorrect. It should read:
'Be the best in your squad and the best squad of the round on each map'
Hence when you are not in a squad on your own, you can earn the achievment, as you will be the best in a squad of 1!

I think it should read a little more like this:
'Be the best in your squad three times on every map, win on every map, shoot a tank, kill someone on a boat, then play one to ten games where you are not in a squad, and then do a random act'

DICE doesn't know what the hell they're talking about because the achievement is popping way too late and in the middle of the game.

Lol exactly, like I said earlier they have no idea.

According to DiCE it's not broken, one DiCE employee told me that I was reading it wrong and it infact said "Be the Best IN your squad on each map" but then I explained that is not what it says on Xbox.com which said "Be In The Best Squad On Each Map" he then told me that he was mixed up and it's actually the servers that are messed up saying you are in the top squad when you are not, to wich I replied why are people including myself unlocking it mid match and not in a squad and he didn't reply.

So it looks like they are doing f**k all about it I'm afraid.

I've just done all three maps back-to-back and got top squad and leading team member and still no Achievement. It still says I've only got two Best Squad Stamps (be the best squad of the round), despite just being the best squad on the maps at least 4-5 times in a row. :confused:

Now I've definitely been in the top squad on all the maps I'm going to go solo for a rotation and see what happens.

just played 6 matched... 3 on Wake Island and 3 on Iwo Jima

Iwo Jima my squad came on top 3 times, 2 of which we won the match and i was on the top of the squad and 1 of those I was 1st place overall

Wake Island my squad came on top 3 times, 3 of which we won and I came in first place overall(700+ points,2nd was 300)... I got 3 more top squad stamps but did not get 4 more best of match stamps... something is def screwed up on the servers and it sucks

and my OCD is not helping either because now my last 2 achievements left are Tour of Duty 2 and Best Squad... I wanted to have the Tour of Duties back to back and have Best Squad right after win on all maps... now its all blown to shit because of a stupid glitchy server side problem... gay :(

I can't stand all these ignorant assholes posting about how people are bad at the game and stupid just because their achievement isn't unlocking when it is supposed to. There is obviously a problem here, otherwise all of these people wouldn't be complaining about it.

=EDIT= Seconds after posting this I got an assist kill, thus unlocking the Best Squad achievement. Glitched?!?! I think so.

i'm curious, to everyone that has gotten it, have you had the game since the beginning (day 1)? this game went nuts on the first day, so I just wonder if it might have something to do with it. maybe playing it in the first hours glitched us or something...probably not, but just a thought.

i got the game before you could even download it from dashboard and i have gotten the achievement so its nothing to do with that plus i was top squad on all three maps in a row so that might help

I'm playing with a friend right now and we're both lone wolf, but on the same team on Wake Island and lost as the Americans and the Best Squad Achievement unlocked for him and he wasn't even in the Top Squad and about half way down on the scoreboard at the end.

Since last night my Best Squad stamp total has gone from two to five, I've been in the top squad at least 10 times now, and my friend just checked and he has got three Best Squad stamps. No Best Squad postcards for either of us.

It has finally unlocked for me!

I was playing lone wolf on Guadalcanal and joined about half way through playing as the Japanese, I was doing quite well and we won the match and then it popped up. I finished fifth on our team overall.

Edit: I've also just check my awards and since playing lone wolf and not appearing in the Top Squad at the end, my Best Squad stamps are now at seven, they were five yesterday and two prior to that. I've appeared in the Top Squad at least 10 times, covering all the maps.

Just to add to the mix. I had played 40+ games in squads and it would not unlock. Then I played 6 games, 2 on each map solo and nothing. Then like someone above stated I was in a car and got the 5pts assist and the dang thang popped. So everyone seems to be different. I also got the trail version on day one and unlocked the full version the next day.

I just unlocked it as well. I finally got Best Squad in each map, and then in the next match, I went solo the entire time. Near the end of the round, I got the Squad Excellence stamp, and at the end of the match I got the achievement. Now just for Tour of Duty I and II...

I received this achievement yesterday and not once I have ever been in a squad. Just solo the whole way. I get high scores in most games but doubt I really made the requirements for this achievement, unless I'm supposed to just have the highest score on each map.

This achievement just poped for me randomly. I've been going for the achievement and i had the Best Sqaud stamp 3 times and i knew i'd been in the Top Squad at the end of the game multiple times...

But just now, the achievement poped for me half way through a game, it seems DICE have just sorted it out so if you havent got it, go turn your console on, load the game, find a game, join a squad and leave it for a few seconds or play it as normal and it should pop.

07-20-2009, 01:48 AM
This annoyed me, all my friends have got this randomly whilst being in my squad (we usually only play together) or half way through a game. Anyway...

I FINALLY got this today after much aggrivation and at the most appropriate time. Me and my two friends were holding out the Ridge for almsot the entire the game. We started off capping all the points but we wouldn't lose our ridge!


Just the 3 of us had to deal with several tanks, planes and shizz loads of infantry but we never lost the flag.

Right at the end I got the cheever. Thank DUCK.

I got this today after getting best squad for the first time on one map. I had it at least 4 or 5 times on each of the other 2 maps.

Not glitching for me, or for any of my friends that have this game either.

But none of us played the demo, I wonder if that has anything to do with it?

they probably made the same server side mistake they made with bad company's top squad thing, thats probably why it was fixed so quickly, instead of taking months like BC...

The one time I tried not being in a squad, I still got top squad because of my amazing 24 kills and 2 deaths. I haven't confirmed if that does infact work, but I know I've gotten top squad on all 4 maps (yes, even the one you don't have to) like 4 times each. I will try this method soon, because this is pissing me off.

I have been the on the best squad, on 3 maps straight the only 3 available lol.

Then i quit the next game after joining still no achievements....... =[

should i just run around solo?

This is how......

(1) I turned on the game and got top squad on every single map with out going to the main menu just straight through.

(2) After i got top squad on each map i entered the next game and without respawning i left my squad.

(3) i played the match and lost doesnt matter what the outcome is.

(4) Next match started i remained solo and after the second match finished while solo ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED.

It worked out for me normally. I got it when I was in a squad while we were the best. I think it was when the game ended too. I just didn't expect it because I didn't know I had been in the best squad at all the maps, and I thought it was glitched.

Thx at lightstorm, I did it pretty much the same way.
1. Made sure I was in the best squad on all 3 maps
2. Joined a new match
3. Got out of my squad
4. Won/lost the match (I did switch between being in a squad and not beeing in one, but at the and of the match I was playing solo)
5. started the second one
6. called in an airstrike, and got the squad stamp although I wasn't in a squad O.o (together with the squad achievement)
