Does anybody else...

... just hate the bastards at Ensemble (or now, Robot)? Seriously, first they make an almost unachievable achievement, then they make it impossible to boost it. GOD!

That's what I'd like to know..I'm far too lazy/impatient/stubborn to play to General. Even with the lowered req's, I just suck at this game, and RTS's online in general...I like campaign modes for Starcraft Warcraft etc but I just can't get into it enough to do online, I just wanna slowly upgrade my army but everyone always rushes at me...so i stay until the bitter end, so I get a few more points, but really, its just a hassle for those achievements

I actually don't mind the update. Though I did have to adapt a new strategy because of the Prophet update. Then again, I would assume most of you do in fact boost and that would be why there is an issue? I play the game for fun, as it was intended to be played for, sure I go for the achievements but I rarely boost.

Why did they update the max points per game? I have got 94k without cheating before and now look what the max is. If this had happened before my game, I would only have got 28.8k xp which is pretty poor.

94000/8.4=11190.5
28800/8.4=3428.6

How does that work? And if you didn't get the max multiplier, then that's even more points before the multiplier. I just don't believe it.

Links to game stats don't work. Just takes us to the main "game stats" page.

He has the right to bitch about them stopping him from illegitimately unlocking an achievement? HA!

Oh, and hell no I'm not a mod. I'd go crazy having to babysit all the whiners here. Instead, I just have fun laughing at their ineptitude and poking holes in their egos.

the link works fine for me.
You do u realize this is an achievement site which has a boosting/achievement trading thread in most of the game forums, this is not the official halowars site

Yeah, I know what site I'm on, and no, there's an achievement trading thread in every forum. NOWHERE does it say it's a boosting thread, people just use it as one because they can't legitimately earn their achievements like they're supposed to. The site is for helping people to earn their achievements, not just giving it to them, but it's been infected by cheaters (yeah, I view boosting as cheating) while legitimate players just let it happen.

There is no joy greater than wrecking an attempt at an "achievement match".

Like the good General has said why boost in this game. Wouldn't you feel better when you here that achievement unlock and it says "50G Running The Show." You can then be like "FINALLY! Now all I have to do is beat this fucking game on Legendary and I'm done with it!"

Wow... really? I honestly expected this to get buried or locked really quick.
And... I wasn't saying that I boost. I just think that they screwed us all over just to stop a few boosters. I have a tendency to get over 40,000 points in some games... or at least, I did.

That's awesome that you get so many points every game, fortunately you'll still get 33,600 so you'll just have to end the game sooner now.

You either boost or play some long ass deathmatch exclusively to get over 40K in some games. Real games most people will never surpass even 7-8000 points. No offense meant but I dont see how anyone could get those high of scores legit.


As to you being mad at Robot...

The achievement was put there for people who want to get the hard to reach milestones in a fair manner, and keep it fun. Not so someone could get a quick and easy 50G. I like it being hard to reach and far off, enhances my experience.

Actually, I play really long Standard games. I turtle, let the enemy come to try and kill me at my only base and rack up huge points as they get destroyed by my superior defensive skills. 6,000 points with the 7.2x multiplier would give me over 40,000 points... and that's if he actually beat me. If he got fed up and quit, I would get the 8.4x multiplier and over 50,000 points.

Totally agree! if i know i cant see myself getting an achievement then i will cut my losses and not cry myself to sleep over the fact that i have like 50 GS missing on a game...

and although i am not against boosting per say i do think that with certain games like halo wars where there is no option to invite to ranked games that you just have to be considerate of others and not keep searching over nd over again looking for your friend so you can boost and quit out at the start of games because you havent got your boosting buddy.

How does one trade achievements and it not be boosting? If you're willing to trade something to help, that act of trading is giving the other person a boost.

"If you push me up, I'll reach down and pull you up." Achievement Unlocked - Got to top of wall. "Oh crap, we just traded help and boosted each other to the top of the wall, now General Khazard will hate us!"
