General rank will probably take some time.

Big Al's Scooter Achievement Help.

Hey guys I found a pretty decent way to get this achievement.
First of all select Captain Cutter as your main leader and vs the Arbiter.
Then select the 1v1 map Chasms.
The second the game starts get your start off Warthog to drive to the oter base.
Kill the ghost but most times it just backs off (Dont chase after it if it runs away.) Then start attacking the building he is making whislt at the same time making other warthogs at your base. And because your attacking his buildings he is making it wont complete and he wont be able to make more units to help defend his base. Then get your other warthogs to start attacking his main base while always having atleast one warthog attacking his buliding he is making. Slowly and steadily you will destroy his main base. Then simply destroy the ghost if you haven't already and you have yourself 10 gamerpoints.
Hope this helps you guys.

And for added info on all the skimish achievements that you do offline. Make sure you have the AI at heroic or it won't count. Took me some tries for me to get it once I figured out which level I should have it at.

How long should it take to get the General ranking now after the update? If you need 2.4 million points, and you can earn at most 4,000 per game...that's 600 games ... but what's the minimum amount of time a game would last for me to earn the 4,000?

I haven't played the game yet.

it depends on many factors. basically, the more units you destroy and the fewer units you get destroyed, the more you earn at the end.

I've got it down to about 30 minutes in a standard build up.

Base points * multiplier = Points per match
2,400,000 / points per match = total matches
Total matches * 30 = total time

4000 * 8.4 = 33600
2400000 / 33600 = about 71.5
71.5 * 30 = 2145 minutes = about 35.75 hours

Double that if you're playing with someone else who is after the achievement.

I got the "Running the Show" achievement this past saturday. I did it all in one day. 2 XBox's, 2 TV's. In each game: 5 min to set everything up, 20 min of boosting while watching tv or listening to music, rinse, repeat. It was agonizing but I churned this one out in one day

Does anyone have any tips on getting Gold on the second mission. Its the only one I need to get the achievment and the only thing keeping me from Ready For The Sequel. I nearly missed it by 2 points but have'nt gotten close since. Any helpful strategies would be nice.

u can boost this game if u have dlc. not many people bought either one because "they are not worth it" or "800ms points for 100G?" or people are all to broke lol but if u and another player search at the same time in the same gametype then the chances u find your partner are very high. if u want to try this method message me. i am also looking for a campaign partner to play on legendary gt: kingkongkyle

Speed through it then turn all the skulls which multiply on right before you destroy the final thing in that level. You'll get all the multipliers to kick in and get well over the amount. Also build up your base (not that much available at the start) to it's full capacity. Upgrade tanks all the way.

The skulls are key - turn the ones on at the very end (the top half).

Most of these achievements in this game are easy or just time consuming. Boosted my General rank up to almost what it required before the update to lower it to what it is now and luckily my little bro is very good and loves this game so legendary was a breeze achievement for me and him.
