But I've been trying to figure this out can you create a World Tour band on live or does it have to be Local??? Me and my friends want to start a band but none of us can figure it out.

when they get this update finally patched up, last i hear its set for mid-late feb, i'll be your expert bassist. :) once we get the 1mil fans we don't have to worry about being on expert for the rest of the game should we choose not to. (minus the endless setlist)

Didn't think to look into it before you bought it? It wasn't a secret that it was local only.

Dont forget, you can play songs as a band online, just not the WBT.

I'm sort of glad they they "delayed" it, if that's what they're really doing. It was fun constantly having people at my house trying to get the achieves for me. But after I realized that I am NEVER going to get the "big in _____" achieves with most of the crowd over here playing on medium, I started thinking that an online BWT would make the achievements much easier to sustain.

It seems nearly impossible to have this option without having hundreds of problems. I mean, just imagine the possibilities...

Imagining....Imagining.....

Nope.I'm brain-dead at the moment.

Wish this would happen though....I mean,I don't wanna have to drag my friend over to my house 24/7 just so I can get anywhere in BWT.Besides,I like not having to try and play every instrument in 5 different bands.....least if they had this i could stick to a sting instrument or drumming....

For instance.

Say you have a 4 person band, but only 2 of you can play at the moment, you play and beat a few gigs. Would that mean the other 2 players who weren't playing at the time beat those gigs?

that's a good question. are you saying that you have multiple gamertags on an xbox and in a band, but if X plays without Y, will Y still get the achievement for an endless setlist? because that's a good question. i always figured that the band's progress was saved as opposed to individuals in the band, but this definitely changes things.

Absolutly what I meant.

ha we need a guinea pig to test this out. i'll have my friend create one on his hard drive, but that won't be until next weekend. on a sidenote, do you really have 80 million fans? that's absurd!

Hmmmm....tuche(sorry,i dunno how to make the 'e' accented....)

I dunno then.....I still would like to see it but you brought up a good pont with that....

And on a side note astro,I thought it was "for instance",not "for instands"?Or am I just stupid?

No need to have your friend test it. I can answer it. It's actually common sense, though. You don't play, you don't get achievements.

The band leader is the save point. If the band leader is X, that is the profile that progress will save to. That's why the leader has to be present at all times and the rest of the players don't matter. Think of everyone but the leader as Studio Musicians. They can be swapped at will and it doesn't affect anything since in BWT no progress is saved to their profiles. Players have access to all gigs that the Band Leader has access to and only the gigs the Band Leader has access to.

If you normally have X, Y, Z, and A playing but one day only X and Z can play and you unlock a 'Big In' achievement, then only X and Z get the achievement. When Y and A return you have to play the last set in the city again for them to get the 'Big In' achievement.

This can also work in reverse to peoples advantage. Say you have already completed the Hall of Fame set and gotten the achievement. A friend comes over who hasn't done any BWT yet and wants to play. You only need to play the Hall of Fame set for him to get that achievement. The same for the Van, Bus, Jet, etc... achievements.

Here is a concrete example for both instances. My band has 4 members using my profile as band leader on guitar. I usually play drums and have my girlfriends daughter play guitar under my profile (she doesn't have her own profile). In going for one of the 'Big Ins' we needed to play on Hard, and she can't play on Hard. So I hopped off drums and played guitar for that set. My dummy profile I'm using for the drummer didn't get the achievement since we had no drummer. Later, we got the Hall Of Fame, but due to some recovery issues when Live was having problem, my girlfriend lost the Hall of Fame achievement since it recovered to an older copy of her profile. Since the guitarist (leader) had the Hall of Fame set available we played just the Hall of Fame set again and she got the achievement for it again.

Eh, my bad. I was tired and didn't check my post for spelling mistakes.

But yes, I have 87 million fans at the moment. That goes to show how insanely time consuming completing the Band World Tour is.

It can only be in local which sucks :mad: I would definately buy this if you could do world band tour online.
