GOAT Boosting Guide
After a lot of experimenting, I have a method for getting GOAT with consistent results. I call this - 'The Trial Account Boosting Method'. Before reading any further, know that this is only for hardcore completists and takes a considerable amount of time and coordination. This is just to prove that it can be done without having to beg random higher ranking players to let you boost off of them(yeah right). You would need the following:
Time estimate:If this guide helped you get GOAT, please post. Also post any comments/suggestions/questions, however there is no need to message me on xbl. I have a subscription to this thread.
[Edit: Nevermind about posting here if you got GOAT - you will get spammed with people begging you to boost them. Sending me a quick thanks over XBL is cool though.]
Lastly, please don't message me to help you boost in the game. The steps are spelled out above for anyone dedicated enough to get it done.
[Edit: I no longer even have the game]
Don't use this thread to find boosting partners, use the Achievement Trading Thread and just reference the 'The Trial Account Boosting Method' for GOAT.

If you ever figure out how it works, I have me and a friend who are in on this.

Great guide! It only took me 5 new accounts to get to 50, then beat it nine times with my 'real' account to get the G.O.A.T. It didn't take that long either, did it all on Sunday morning. Played around 120 games in all.

Thank you to the great people who provided useful info on this tough achievement. I was lucky in that I hadn't played any online and XBL has free Silver access to multi-player Apr 1-5 so no trial cards needed.
Here's a rough outline of what I did based on the information provided by others in this thread:
Created 5 Silver accounts using my PC (probably faster than on the XBOX).
Recovered the first two, S1 and S2, on separate XBOXes (I have two copies of the game).
For the first boost, I played S2 vs. S1 for 32 matches and got to level 24.
Then I recovered profile S3 and played S3 vs. S2 for 30 matches and got to level 36 with it.
Then I recovered profile S4 and played S4 vs. S1 for 5 matches to get to level 13. Then I played S4 vs. S3 for 21 matches and got to level 43.
Then I recovered profile S5 and played S5 vs. S2 for five matches and got to level 25. Then I played S5 vs. S4 for 20 matches and got to level 47.
Next, I played my first gold account as follows:
- G1 vs. S1 for 5 matches for level 12
- G1 vs. S3 for 5 matches for level 33
- G1 vs. S5 for 24 matches for level 50
Finally, I played my second gold account as follows:
- G2 vs. S2 for 10 matches for level 28
- G2 vs. S4 for 10 matches for level 41
- G2 vs. G1 for 14 matches for level 50
Result: Two G.O.A.T.s got
As others have pointed out, you do not need to play a single point, just forfeit the match for the profile you want to lose.

It took only about 7 hours total.
I can also confirm that quitting counts the same way as playing the matches.

Thnx for the guide. ive used it with a couple of friends and it works like a charm. We used 5 extra profiles to get one of them at rank 50. After that we played our own profiles against the extra profiles (selecting them by rank up).
After the first of us got the achievement we traded placed and did the same cycle again. It will take a lot of time but its worth it! Getting the extra profiles ranked up takes the most tike btw.

I ended up being only 1 dummy account short!
Even though i didn't have a clean slate i figured since i played less then 12 games i should be ok.
Well after using 6 dummies and getting one to level 50 i thought i was set.
Starting from rank 10 with 5 wins and 7 loses i went to rank 25 with 5 games.
Then went to 38 with 20 wins then 40 with 5 more wins.
Now i started versing my level 50 dummy account and before i knew it he had dropped to 45 and i had only gone up to 41. Im positive i played around 20 more games with the 50 level dummy to make sure he wouldn't drop soo much but alas he sure did.
Now im stuck on 41 with no more accounts! 8 whole hours to get nowhere!
Guess i'll just have to wait till i get more dummies
