Help! - Race Week resurrection signup

We have worked with EA to turn this achievement back on but after a long time of false hope and broken promises their community managers never delivered, even with a xbox.com thread open for an entire year and hundreds of signups asking for the achievement to be enabled.

We are working with the EA community rep(EA Torque) to get this achievement turned back on. Current outlook is hopefully by the end of the year, but we need your help --

IF YOU STILL NEED THIS ACHIEVEMENT - POST IN THAT THREAD SO EA CAN SEE HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE WAITING!!

yeah, they need to get a race week back on also they need some ea moderators back on so we can get that achievement because without them we cant get 3 achievements - race week, ea moderator and the reward card hustler. when 1 achievement is already glitched its a bit shit that we now cant get 4 of them thats 145 points we are being robbed of. come on ea sort it out

if EA enjoy closing servers they shud open a different 1 that they've shut down every week or so, so every1 still has a chance to play the games online and get the chieves then its nt as bad as shuttin them down completely!

Yea, OPEN THE SERVER!!! lol

OK....i`ve really had it....EA doesn`t give a rats ass about the community...the only thing they care about is publishing new titles....like 1) Pro street 2) undercover 3) shift.... the first 2 totally sucked....i`m not sure what shift looks like but i`m pretty sure that it`s gonna suck aswell....seriously STOP releasing crappy games and fix the ones that are good....NFS primetime really was Most Wanted and Carbon...

People we really need to make some noise about this problem....cuz obviosly posting in this thread will not make any difference....

My idea is to start sending EA HQ spam emalis...and threaten them that we are not going to buy any new NFS games before a patch is made to fix the problems in the prvious games...People...a widespread boycott is the only thing taht could help right now....cuz all other measures have failed!!!!

soo....anyone know any e-mails of people that work in EA that could actually make any difference...and please leave out EA torque and all the other "community managers" ....cuz as i understand, their hands are tied....we need someone on a higher stand...

ARE YOU WITH ME?

EA Black Box got shut down basically and it's not known whether anybody left that is responsible for the servers knows how to turn this achievement on. EA Torque is the only contact we have, nobody else at EA cares about this. It seems he has limited ability to get anyone there to do anything. It has been a couple months since his quote below, and ProStreet community days haven't come back either. Keep the signups coming, but as always, no promises.

You are right and definately deserve a straight answer. Unfortunately I am not able to give a comment, not knowing much of what's going on with the fate of Carbon myself. As soon as I know, you'll know.

ea should have it every month there is a race week and change the moderator achievement to ones like the viruses. you have to beat someone with that achievement to get it. would sort that one out. i know its only an achievement glitched and not the whole game but people play for achievements (like me a game is not completed until full gamerscore). If they screw people over they wont buy future games. exp motogp 08 had a glitched achievement for 50g. Im not buying motogp 09/10 purely because 08 was so bad but achievements are crap as well (win a race with 16 human players lol lucky enough to race against 16 players full stop)

You don't just say you want to do something, then give up on it OP. Persistence is key.

But on a relevant note, knowing EA they'll close the servers soon (it's a 4+ year old game, after all) but if we are lucky they'll do a race week right before the closure. It seems like a logical move IMHO, hopefully they see it the same way.

Ditto for those stupid moderator achievements. I saw a recent player with the achievement unlocked recently (5/30/10) so there is still hope.

EDIT - There is NO REASON that race week should be unobtainable. NFS Undercover has an achievement ("Community Day" or something) for playing on a specific day, and it has been made to be unlocked ANY DAY OF THE YEAR. EA you aren't THAT LAZY, are you?

One year of persistence should be plenty, skim through the signup thread if you don't believe we did everything we could to get this turned on.

Any recent unlocks for this achievement are hacking, even with datestamps. EA fired Black Box a while back, the developer for NFSC. It's presumed that the only people that knew how to turn on this achievement are long gone.

Why doesn't someone (if it hasn't been done already) start a Facebook page for the petition?? Ghostbusters had glitched cheevos, and it seemed that after 1+ years, they finally got off their dead asses and fixed the cheevos with all the hoopla that the Facebook page created. Just a thought and my 2 cents. (btw, I don't and won't have a FB page. I am a recluse haha.)
