Call to Arms Achievements to be Obtainable in Private After Title Update!!
 
Hey guys, just to let you all know i have just posed a question to the Dev Team in the Thursday Night stream over on Twitch about the DLC achievements being unobtainable in private matches, they've answered that very clearly in that they will be obtainable in Private after the upcoming Title Update.
thanks

This includes the blood drive and boneyard plays/wins achievements?

JOsHuWa v2 05-09-2013 10:20 PM

yes i know, but i am yet to get the 'Surprise' cheevo after quite a few attempts, so it's a massive relief haha! plus for others the FFA wins on Boneyard will now be much easier to get when it drops :)
and i'm guessing all of them, Jim said he wasn't sure if he could release that information yet due to things with Microsoft, so lets hope it's for them all, which i think it is :)

I guess they realized how much they screwed up with these achievements, which means that hopefully the next DLC's achievements will be obtainable in private. Too bad I already got 9/10 of the achievements from boosting and lagged lobbies (did BOOSHKA! before it was even discovered to be obtainable in private).

Still though, good to know that it will be easier for everyone else who tries for them. It will definitely make it easier for me to get Surprise! now.

Seems the incoming TU is doing a lot of things right for Judgment, shame it had to come after I had gotten everything except Surprise.

My thoughts exactly. Atleast they are going to fix this issue and others also.

Maggot_Alchemist 05-10-2013 12:23 AM

Man i already got all the cheevos. Oh well... guess i'll help my friends then.

Destro 05-10-2013 12:40 AM

This would be a first tough that achievements are that much downgraded, exept maybe war supporter in GOW3. I mean... they could just fix Surprise so it actually work in public and thats it... Not saying the other ones aint crap, but they are not glitched or anything...

In any case, wake me up if next patch remove FRAGS from this game...(starting ones, or AT LEAST ammo boxes refill) cause until then... playing this game is a way to hurt my throat out of raging...

BlamelessSoul 05-10-2013 12:50 AM

it makes me happy to hear this hope its true

DanielH 05-10-2013 01:54 AM

i got call to arms dlc on 4/23/13.
4/23/13 to 5/5/13, got 5 achievements on public and Professional Locust on private.

FINALLY! (chanting)"call to arms private, call to arms private, call to arms private"

the 10 achievements WILL BE ON PRIVATE!
after 3 1/2 weeks later, the complaining WILL stop. you, complained, moan, bitch, and FINALLY, i said FINALLY, you spoke up, laid the smackdown on the developers, let them know we are not taking this public/ranked bs no more, and they listen, to where now it on private.
when is the next title update.

Siegfried 05-10-2013 03:02 AM

Does anyone have a date for this update? Can't wait to finally get Surprise! and be done with this piece o crap DLC.

DanielH 05-10-2013 03:31 PM

Epic, made the game, with microsoft.

People Can Fly(People Can Suck)made the MP before haven and call to arms came out. now PCF(PCS)throws a WORST DLC, ever, and since 4/23/13 to now, i have complained about the achievements, had it not been on public, i would have got 59/60 achievement ON private ON 4/23/13.

now i can finally, on private, get 5 1st place on boneyard with bots, 10 points 5 times, and achievement, as well Surprise.

when is the next title update.

TriRock 05-10-2013 04:24 PM

Thanks, PCF. It really makes one feel like an idiot for getting the achievements, when they later are being handed out to anyone.

There you have it. Announcement is next week (probably on Wednesday to coincide with the free map release) so we'll have to wait until then. You figure it'll be three weeks after the Dreadnought map since all the DLC has been around three week intervals.

3/29 - Haven map
4/23 - Call to Arms DLC
5/15 - Dreadnought map
6/4 or 6/11 - New DLC?

Depends on the GS it adds, though. Officially, you're allowed to add only 250 GS each quarter. Of course, in the past the rule book has been disregarded when it suited MS or they couldn't care less. Time will tell, I guess.

Is that every "calendar" quarter or once every three months...? I'm sure they would want to get this DLC out ASAP since they're losing players by the minute.

As you've said, M$ has gone against it's own "rules" before, so they could always do it again. Next week we'll find out!

So the Surprise! achievement should finally be fixed next week :drunk

The Duke of Darkness 05-10-2013 07:59 PM

They should only make Surprise! available in private, the rest should stay as is. I can't believe they're changing it just because a bunch of cry babies bitched about not getting ACHIEVEMENTS handed to them.

supadryz 05-10-2013 08:11 PM

Well that's good news, good thing I have not done any grinding as yet.

Kyusskiller 05-10-2013 08:37 PM

All you who can't get 5 wins in FFA don't deserve the achievement. Complete BS, just because you no skill cry babies whined they are making something that takes skill into free gamerscore. The surprise achievement was worthy of complaint, but you guys are little cry babies.

Huh? The ANNOUNCEMENT for the next DLC will be next week, and the next title update will hit when the DLC does. And who's to say that they will address "Surprise!" at all?

This is what happens when people don't read...

No luck involved get in a lobby and play 7 match's and one of them will be on Boneyard. You either haven't played much or you keep backing out before the cycle finish's.

I was fortunate enough to get in my own bot lobbies in public and cycle trough all maps 3 times to get the 3 remaining boneyard wins i had left. And it took me around 3 hours... just pummeling bots...

I ain't mister love boosting, i ain't in favor of handling achievements for free and all, but on that one i support the guy... waiting an HOUR or so to just be lucky and have A SHOT at winning a game on boneyard(against 9 other persons if no bots are present) is just damn stupid... If the games would let you search for the map, get in the lobby, wait for the game to start and then play it, i would say ok , even tough i hate FFA in the first place in its concept(its no real GOW to me, but TDM of this one aint much either anyway) that achievement would be "ok" even tough a pain. Now its just damn stupid, cause if you enter boneyard your almost sure the game is aready ouch of reach with a 6-7 kills minimal lead. Cause you aint entering as soon as you join either... even if you enter at 4 kills lead, you can wait til he got 8 before spawning... stupid

Tyger7 05-11-2013 02:30 AM

I figured they would patch it. They had until Special Event Week 30 until I got super disappointed.

that is what i said. go to VS, Overrun and the rest of the maps and SELECT what map you want with bots, instead of HOURS to get boneyard 5 times and not guaranteed to win 5 times due to humans being the fator and at what cost, hours, due to not being 1st 5 times. win some, lose some.

sure you do get bots, rarely.

now, the dust has settled, peace has come, for we got call to arms on private, finally, after 3 1/2 weeks. now all to do is get like a boss, booshka, others on private with bots. no more public/rank on achievements.

That's what iam saying, outside of "Surprise" they were fine. If your gonna make them obtainable in private with an Update than they should just make them PoP when you start up the game... Than they should also just make everyone 12th prestige. Get one kill BOOM 12th prestige... maybe the next game will be an insert pop the full 1000, take it back, trade it in... Is anyone still reading this :)
