Sorry but i have to vent a bit, I planned a boosting session for tonight i even stayed up late (4am) to accomodate the fact most people were in US time zones, and out of the 16 people that wanted to do it, only 7 responded as a yes for tonight and then even worse only 1 person showed up, admittedly a few turned up later but thats not the point.
i worked pretty hard to sort it so im really annoyed and i think i have the right to be.
so yeah pretty miffed off.
and if this is wrong place to post or shouldnt be posted at all then im sorry.
fell free to discuss failed boosting attempts and join me in my annoyance

Did you get every bodies time zone right...
yep i got it right, around 1 am my time = 5/6pm which was right.
im still on the game now and still only two people online and we need 8, everyone agreed and said they would be there

yeah that sucks but i would gladly take that over the people who show up, want to go first, then leave as soon as they get what they need. I would really like to take them out behind the wood shed.

I understand things come up but it annoyed me that only two hours before boosting i messaged everyone and they all said they would be there.
it still stresses me out though

i have had many a boosting sessions that people have just not shown up for and i was so pissed, i just couldnt believe that they would volunteer to do it and then not show up , what gets me even more though is those who are online when you are supposed to be boosting but wont join the game or respond to messages...i have also had a few incidents where people show up i decide to be nice and let them go 1st they get their achievements and then magically they go offline the moment they get them, not sure who i want to strangle more but i know this it pisses me off just the same

I just want to get boosting out of the way quickly...

This happend to me a lot of times or they find another person to boost and its like niice why add me in the first place then?

I have missed like 3 in total
one cause I accidently forgot and got into a match and kept going at it vs some friends (for some reason i never look at the messages or popups when in a battle till im dead (if ;) )
The second one was because of a clan match I basically put priorities in to everything
the third one was cause I returned the game i rented after waiting a week without playing that game for 1 guy to do the boosting then he didnt show up that night so i returned it the next morning and he showed up at night (wanted to smak him over the head, but then i was like maybe he had something important.. u never know.)

Take it your boosting for 8 people on Burnout: Paradise, well i know a few people that want to do it from the UK if you want in just say ; )

It will be 8pm onwards GMT well work out a day when we got the 8 people required.

Yes this pisses me off so much and when people fuck it up when its ur turn etc etc...

One of the golden rules of boosting is that if something can go wrong it probably will.


I have pretty much moved on to only boosting with local friends or close xbox friends these days.

Have you ever considered EARNING your achievements rather than "boosting" them? No disrespect intended.

I just think that if you can't kill X amount of people or win X amount of matches or whatever the requirement may be, then you don't deserve the achievement. Hence the name 'achievement.' It's an accomplishment. What do you accomplish by winning a match or race that the other player isn't trying?

Awwww Beki im sorry :( I knew I should have stayed up just in case
Xilynx its called team effort and as you can see its rather hard to get people on at the same time it IS still an achievement because you need to put the work in

I'm so sorry Beki!! I know I told you I would be there but I just couldn't make it at 4 o'clock in the morning :). Even though I don't own a copy of Burnout Paradise I feel some what guilty (still need to get owned for GH3) But I was talking to other people yesterday with the same problem. We are thinking about starting are own little group of players that can play regular. Maybe you should start looking for people in your timezone.

Please remind me again why you are on this site? This site is based around boosting... Like for instance i boosted the 1, 25, 50 flags on Blacksite, im wondering why i would ever attempt that legit... wait.. i wouldn't.

Consider yourself OWNED!!! :p

It is also hard to even catch people on a lot of the games that you need multiplayer achievements in. And others you need people to get the achievement like in co-op games. And yes it is very frusterating when people get the achievement and then bounce before they help you get yours...

Well the general idea is, that if you're from Europe, don't boost with americans. It just takes too much effort, and you'll probably find plenty of people from around Europe willing to boost.

I haven't boosted yet myself so i haven't experienced people not being there. :P

EvilestBean
08-10-2008, 12:31 PM
Sorry to hear that Beki, but like Raven said me him and Chaosflare were talking last night and we was thinking of getting a small group together so we can boost some games now and again that way we will playing together for a while and it will be more reliable because we will be doing it alot and we will get to know each other which will make it easier. Let me know what you think.

Hey now don't turn this into a brits vs american thing.. I have boosted with brits before and I love it because that is one of the things I love most about playing online is meeting people from all over the world.. Plus since I live in Japan I usually get to play with Brits more than Americans anyways.. Anyways it makes no difference who I play with since we are all gamers. But I do hear some good things about Europe and hope to make it over there fairly soon....

Don't you just hate boosters?

Tbh, staying up, for a game to boost seems a bit sad. I was at a party last night, and i would never stay up for anyone, especially in a different time zone.

If people like staying up and boosting then its up to them, i do it know and again but I tell the other boosters that i have to go at a certain time that way they know that i havent just quit and gone offline.

Sorry, i didn't mean to sound like it was Europe vs. USA, in fact i meant that the problem there is just the difference of the timezones (so these are just examples, boosting with people from China is just the same thing ). For a larger group of boosters it's just more beneficial to use people from a nearer timezone, since GMT-7 and GMT+2 boosting together are obviously going to cause uncomfortable situations for at least one of them ( one has to stay up late, or the other one has to play earlier, which is bad if he/she has a job ).
Peace.

Im not sure tbh i still want to boost cos im really struggling to get the win an 8 player race but i feel dis-heartened

i was more than willing to help others last night, infact i helped one guy get atleast 5 achievements so it shows im a nice person lol

CyanideBreathMint
08-10-2008, 05:32 PM
S'true though, it's always best to stick with folks within your own territory when boosting because of this very thing...although there's noting to suggest it wouldn't happen if you had all UK gamers agreeing to come online to boost.

Sucks for sure and I do empathize as I've been on both sides of the boosting fence. To the plebs posting about anti-boosting, sod off. This thread (from what I can summize) wasn't made to hear your thoughts on boosting as a whole, it was rather quite specific in its topic.

This boosting group sounds good, especially if it's specifically aimed at UK gamers to make things easier timewise.

Maybe you should create a group in 'Social Groups' for it? I know there's already a couple of groups for specific games, but maybe a 'UK boosters' group?

Anyway, I'd be interested in joining although I may not be able to do much boosting right away as I'm going to be busy this coming week. Love the idea though of having a regular group to boost with that you know you can trust to not walk out on you before you get your achievements!

I also don't have Burnout Paradise, but I'd happily get in on any future games that could be boosted for. I think a social group would be the perfect way to arrange the time/game details! :)

I wouldn't have thought that would make too much difference. I think it would just have to be a case of playing at UK times as most of the group would be from the UK, so so long as you don't mind being 2/3 hours out it'd be ok.

It's not really like the difference between American and British time, so I doubt it would cause too much trouble. :)

well you got to factor some achievments are gonna be impossible like godlike in shadowrun. With selfish gamers you will never get a legitimate oppourtunity to kill all 6 of the other teams players without taking any damagew friendly or unfriendly.... so if you want the 1000 points you gotta do what you gotta do.

I just think that if you can't kill X amount of people or win X amount of matches or whatever the requirement may be, then you don't deserve the achievement. Hence the name 'achievement.' It's an accomplishment. What do you accomplish by winning a match or race that the other player isn't trying?

xxEquilibriumxx
08-11-2008, 08:54 PM
I have set up many boosting sessions. All mine have been successful. Why you ask. because if a game requires 16 I try and get 25. If by some chance all 25 want in I ask who in this room has things to do in an hr? Those people that say they got things to do I will keep an eye on the clock and those people usually go in the middle. When they leave I'll replace them with whoever else is left online. As for the people that go first or ask to go first I just tell them I draw names out of a hat. I can usually count on around 30% of the people that say they can come to not show.

Raven1709
08-11-2008, 09:44 PM
We just want to keep it a little casual. I don't want to be adding just people for a few achievemets and then cut them loose. I just want to be able to play the same people in the same games. I don't want to be telling everyone be here at this hour. I just want to prevent what Beki was saying. It should be fun hunting for online achievements and even more fun with friends you can trust in stead of people that just look out for themselves and leave you hanging.

I have set up many boosting sessions. All mine have been successful. Why you ask. because if a game requires 16 I try and get 25. If by some chance all 25 want in I ask who in this room has things to do in an hr? Those people that say they got things to do I will keep an eye on the clock and those people usually go in the middle. When they leave I'll replace them with whoever else is left online. As for the people that go first or ask to go first I just tell them I draw names out of a hat. I can usually count on around 30% of the people that say they can come to not show.
My game required 8 including myself i had 16 people lined up only 3 showed up, figure that one, comes down to it those other 13 were unreliable which is why i like what ravens doing, this way we know who we are boosting with and when

yeah that sucks but i would gladly take that over the people who show up, want to go first, then leave as soon as they get what they need. I would really like to take them out behind the wood shed.

Everyone kept doing that to me in Halo, when I was getting Overkill. After a while I was so mad then I convinced them to let me go first, got my achievement then quit the game. :D

I don't get why people would act that way. If you make a commitment you honour it. If not why even bother if all you do is being selfish.

cheers for helping me get some of the achievements on Lost Planet Raven i appreciate it mate :). Im definatly going to help you get all the online achievements on Halo 3 I also need some online achievements, ive got some but not all lol.

Do any of you need the online achievements for Prey? I'm thinking of doing some boosting in that soon. Not sure when I'll be free yet, but I also haven't checked who does and doesn't have Prey!

I suggested to Raven that we could do with some way of keeping a list of games we want to boost somewhere, so we can easily compare without having to go through each others gamertags separately. Especially as I've got lots of games I haven't even put into my 360 yet, so aren't on my gt at all!

I still think a social group is a good idea - I'm pretty sure you can make them private too if you wanted to. I know you can't edit your posts in the social groups, so making lists in there is probably not the best idea, but for arranging possible boosting times, maybe?

Also I suppose we could always put these lists in our gamertag bio if we wanted to...

Anyway, just some ideas to think about... :)

people have to learn to commit to their boosting sessions and make sure they will be there if they say they are. i know things in real life come up but a commitment is a commitment so people gotta learn to commit to a session if they say they are.

Surely if someone enojys doing something and it doesn't affect other people, then what's the problem?
Oh yes, lets stay up all night so we can kill each other for a few points.

Don't get me wrong, achievement points really do show off how cool a person are.

I say that with an ounce of sarcasm.

So what if i do decide to stay up most of the night its not affecting you personally is it?
So what if i want to get my score up its something im proud of.
Its something i enjoy doing and if you dont like it then suck a fat one.

Santa stop being a dick for once. If you don't want to boost you don't have to, nobody is forcing you to do anything. And seeing as this thread is all about boosting (and has turned into a thread arranging a boosting group) why are you even bothering to post in it, let alone trying to insult everyone else posting in it? Grow up.

Enjoy staying up all night to boost? Wow, i love socially active people.

"woy a dick santa is people make choices, your a big man who comes on this website and pokes fun at boosters nice one" Can you give me a bit more grammar i'm kind of confused on what 'woy' is, is it what, wow or whatever? And what does 'santa is people make choices' please explain.

"Santa stop being a dick for once. If you don't want to boost you don't have to, nobody is forcing you to do anything.

Grow up" Well you see, someone has to have the dick, so thanks.

And if i made a very specific thread, you'd probably feel the same. Instead of saying Don't you just hate people that don't show up, but instead you made it too specific. So yeah i'm not agreeing with boosting, especially not at night, i mean why would you stay up? I don't really see the need to grab a maximium of 50 points.

What don't know how to multi-quote? :p

Anyway, the point is, if someone makes a thread and you disagree with its content, it doesn't give you the right to come and insult everyone in it. Again, if you don't like it, don't post, go find somewhere where your idiotic comments are appreciated.

Oh and "someone has to have the dick"? That's so mature. What a clever guy you are. Bet your mom's proud of you.

Multi quote? Yes but i have real stuff to do, i don't have the time to listen.

Did i insult everyone? Perhaps, i was asking why you would want to do it, the last i checked a forum is a place of Democracy, where everyone can post what they want.

I know it's mature.

Who says the group is staying up all night to gain an extra 50 points. We are a group that help out each other with achievements that are hard to get on there own. So yes if you have a problem with helping people get hard achievements it is your right. It is your right to speak your mind. But it is your way of speech that offends people. But that is not your problem. As long as you feel the might of the internet anonymity you would continue your rant on this subject. So please be so kind as to make your own thread on your side of boosting and leave us be.

I've never organised a big planned boosting session, but I did join a game on Turning Point and talked everyone into boosting with me, all was going great, everyone knew when it was their turn. Then you get the one arsehole who decides it's his turn, which causes a riot and everyone does what they want. It took me about 10 minutes to get it back to normal. So I hate people who don't listen or get impatient.

And I have also had people who have gotton their achievement and ran before, which pisses me off so much.
I'd never do that, I boosted with people on Blacksite for the 50 Wins, I got mine first but sat there for another 100 wins to help the guys out, when I could of just ran and never see them again.
