Wow EA are really a##holes because of achievements!

Look at the achievements!

I was looking forward to the game because I play basketball professionally but look at the achievements. It would be easier to get 1000 in 2K AND LIVE together.

What where they thinking? I mean "perfect at home"? Wow are they crazy. And online games are decent but some achievements are cruel.

Perfect at home is actually an easy achievement. All you have to do is pick North Carolina or anybody with a good team and simulate each home game individually. Then just simulate the away games since you don't really care about them (I made sure I won at least 30 games so that can be my first season towards the "Win 30 games in three consecutive seasons" achievement.

As for the online achievements. Yeah they are a little hard to obtain. Every time I try to get online there is usually nobody online due to the fact this game was released around the same time as other key titles.

The only achievements I'll have trouble with are the online ones.

Yeah, EA really are assholes. Why is it everytime they release a sports title, I have to do 30 or 60 years of franchise mode??? It takes forever to simulate, much less actually play it. Do they think I love college football enough to play it for 60 seasons or college basketball for 30??? This game is just retarded. I'd rather play NCAA 08 or 07 even!!!! I've spent the last 20 minutes simulating ONE GAME over and over so I can get my 30th win for my third season. Even with all my sliders turned up and the cpu's sliders turned down, I'm somehow getting beat as North Carolina by Butler, Austin Peavy, and New Mexico on Junior Varsity!!! They're hitting fade away turn around threes on my ass and my guys can't even make lay ups! I hate you EA!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, come on the game is fun to play and stop being obsessed over achievements. I mean, don’t get me wrong, they are addicting as all get out and I’m definitely one to try to get all 1000 points, but play games because you want to play them and there fun. This game is tight, and all the achievements are easy. I mean theirs only 3 online achievements. It’s not that bad and the only crappy achievement is the 30 years of dynasty. It’s a fun game just enjoy it.

Spolier looks downright nasty, and 75 ranked matches is just a grindfest. 250 points for multiplayer is excessive given that there was next to nothing devoted to MP in previous editions.

And I thought EA finally learned their lesson about forcing people to sim dynasty mode for hours on end. I hadn't seen an achievement like "Hardcore" since NCAA Football 07.

Definitely a step backward in terms of achievements, which may have something to do with the lack of popularity of this title.

EA has to keep the lists fresh. You have to give them credit for releasing these sports games, basically spot on the same date each year, and retouching the achievement lists to keep it interesting.

The sliders are what has me furious over this game. I'm trying to pick up the achievement for winning the legends tournament (on All-Conference) and I have all of the game sliders maxed out for my guys and zeroed out for the computer. However, it doesnt seem to matter at all. Why do they even put the sliders in the game if it doesnt change the level of play? If my sliders are maxed out for shooting and the comps are zeroes, I dont expect to miss open jump shots and for the computer to drain threes.

I have my steal and block ability maxed, but the computer still doesnt turn the ball over, breaking through multiple defensive traps per possession and then driving to the hoop without my guys ever being able to get a block when it matters. I have literally played about 4 or 5 2 minute half games trying to win the championship and keep having to quit. In the last game I was winning by 2 points with around 20 seconds remaining and somehow my player misses a wide open layup and the computer brings it the length of the court and plows my defender over, getting both the basket and the free-throw, handing me another loss.

I have no problem losing to the computer on a certain difficulty setting, but I do have a problem losing to the computer when the sliders are available and they do absolutely nothing.

Glad I got that off my chest.

excellent point.. i dont know why you would come here to complain about people liking achievements... its like going to a porn site and being offended by nudity. people are ridiculous.

with that being said, i don't find the achievements to be too terribly hard really, just a pain in the ass as far as time consuming. and you've also gotta think, the reason they make these atrocious 30 and 60 year dynasty achievements are to get more people to buy the game instead of rent it, as well as just keep people playing them longer... granted it does turn a lot away, but people like us who are addicted to achievements will often times buy the game because a 5 day rental is not long enough to do these achievements unless you're very dedicated to finishing up this particular game

My thoughts exactly . The 75 games played achievement is ridiculous, but it can be done a little quicker with DNFs...
