Wtf?!? No...no!.. NOOOO!!!

I guess only good thing I can say, is im thankful I don't have 10k hands played yet.

simmias 09-20-2012 02:01 AM

Jesus, why can't this game die already? 2500 hands of Texas Heat?!?

RES1DENT NEMES1S 09-20-2012 02:52 AM

As much as i like free dlc, having to play 2500 hands on a game mode that is only available on certain days and certain times is complete and utter bullshit!

They either need to make these daily or put them on earlier, there's no fucking way i'm staying up til 6am to play this crap. This is going to take FOREVER!! :mad:

thoseAREmySHOES 09-20-2012 03:20 AM

This is so unbelievably stupid.

LausDomini 09-20-2012 03:47 AM

I won over 1 million chips in a single player 3-table tournament and did not get the achievement. I did get the one for hitting a flush on the river.

EDIT: I had to win over two million chips in one hand to earn the achievement.

JohnAizen 09-20-2012 04:42 AM

I just downloaded the DLC, started the game and the "In the Money" cheevo popped for me, talk about luck

Lou Keymia 09-20-2012 08:03 AM

I bet they have a Spring 2013 season that reinstates the old Spring DLC achievements. I would be so happy.

Gunstar Red 09-20-2012 12:26 PM

I REALLY hope the Texas Heat achievement counts hands retroactively. I don't suppose they added a counter to track that now that it's an achievement. The only thing making the Heat achv worse is not knowing how close you are to getting it.

If you're playing with slowpokes, you'll be lucky to get in 20 hands per round of Heat, so you're looking at 125 30-minutes Heat sessions to hit that many hands.

littlejay 09-20-2012 12:51 PM

Yeah, I can't see anyone getting even close to 100 hands in one 30 minute match. that's way too many for one season.

They need it to be on daily. Sh?t every game i play is with bloody bots. :mad:

littlejay 09-20-2012 05:14 PM

I think I'll just go all in every hand to get each one over with quicker. who cares if im on the lower table.

Do you have to sit out a hand if you bust out? If so, may be better off just folding every hand. I guess it would depend on how many human players there are. Humans tend to take more time at every decision.

Nope, there is no counter. But I agree that folding over and over is probably the best option.

FarmerJay 09-20-2012 08:35 PM

For a counter, you could just write down how many total hands you have now. Then when you have 2500 more hands you'll know how close you are. If you only play Texas heat from that point on.

yamayamayaamaa 09-20-2012 11:39 PM

Well I'm hoping past Texas Heat games count towards the achievement like the other cumulative DLC achievements did. But I might as well do that since Texas Heat is the only thing I need to be playing.

UnarmedReaper07 09-21-2012 01:07 AM

Man, I should of played Texas Heat more if past games do actually count.


*Got 2/3 achievements. Now I need the Texas Heat one.

Crash Geom 09-22-2012 09:05 PM

For the Flush achievement, does that mean win with a flush or you have to get your 5th flush card on the river?

I'm surprised they have a win 1,000,000 chip achievement but the max buy-in is still 250K. Seriously this has the potential to be a great poker game if they had 10,000,000 chip buy ins. Practically everyone who plays is already Level 50. What's an easy way to get this achievement?

Texas Heat triple diamond table or Single Player 250K buy in game types. I did it in single player.

Crash Geom 09-22-2012 11:36 PM

Yes, but you'll need to win a pot of 2 mil+ to get this as someone already stated?

yamayamayaamaa 09-23-2012 12:21 AM

Sort of. You have to win a total of 1 million not including your own chips. That's why it seems like you need 2 million. What I did was get my chips to 1 million, then wait for one of the AI to get to 1 million. After that keep trying to get the AI with 1 million to go all in at the same time as you. Obviously you need to have a good hand also so it takes a while but it worked for me.

Dr Akula 09-23-2012 01:19 AM

lol a straight flush on the river doesn't count for the achievement cause I just got one.

Crash Geom 09-23-2012 01:52 AM

I'm not even going to bother with the other achievements except the Texas Heat one. I expect to get 2-3 other achievements along the way. Just bought a turbo controller off eBay for Texas Heat for $20. It really does seem like going All-In every hand is the best strategy.

I calculated 25 hands per session this way. So 100 sessions for the achievement. Also assuming it counts your previous sessions.

Normally I wouldn't bother with these kind of achievements at all. But for games I care about, I do go out of my way to get em. haha (Even if they are so stupid.)

FarmerJay 09-23-2012 04:21 AM

I just sit out. And it brings me into the next game automatically, and I still average about 20 hands per game.

I'm worried sitting out doesn't count as playing a hand.

Edit: Oh looks like you're right. My hands played went up in my career stats while sitting out! Well that looks like the easiest way then. :)

Gunstar Red 09-23-2012 08:08 AM

So did anyone retroactively get the 2500 Heat hands yet? I played all 12 Heat sessions on Saturday, and averaged about 20 hands per session thanks to being paired up with only 3 humans and the rest CPU bots. When I used to get a full table of humans, I'd usually only get in 12 to 15 hands.

So assuming you are able to get in 20 hands per Heat, and you do all 12 sessions available on both Tuesday and Saturday, you'll get 480 hands per week, meaning you'll need five and a half weeks of playing EVERY Heat session to reach 2500 hands.

I think I'm more upset that there's no way to track your Heat progress with a counter, more than I am that they put in the 2500 Heat hands achievement.

A pretty funny aside: I actually ended one Heat session today ranked 74th with a Gold Medal from folding every single hand during the session! *LOL* I didn't even pay attention until the final tally screen that I had somehow scored that much XP just from Smart Folds. I'm assuming that only happened because there was a showdown every hand and my cards would never have won, as earning a Gold purely on folds is a very rare occurrence.

Yea that's what I'm afraid of. Too many humans. But All-In insures there will only be 2-3 players a time without too many decisions to be made from other players. Or you'll get eliminated and eventually make it to a table with only computer players.

If you only play Texas Heat from now on then Hands Played will only count your Texas Heat hands and you can use that as a counter.

Yeah, I checked to make sure the counter was going up. The only downside is that it says you lose your medal or something if you're still sitting out at the end. But I personally could care less.

Not sure if I'm allowed to link here or not.
http://www.trueachievements.com/Full...hievements.htm

There are no tracked users who have the Texas Heat achievement on that site. Out of the 282 people who have this DLC, 0 people have the achievement. You can assume anyone who has this DLC has to like this game a lot since very few people know about this DLC.

That's kind of surprising because if the game did keep track of previous Texas Heat tournaments, I'd assume there would be at least 1 person who loves em to death and have the achievement.

yamayamayaamaa 09-23-2012 09:53 PM

I also averaged about 20 per game. I just put my arcade stick with B (fold) on turbo. I'll try it with Y (all in) next and see if that is faster.
