As much as I would like MS to do something I don't think they will, look at all the shit EA pull by shutting down servers making achievement's unattainable even the one's that don't require them to turn on events(community,etc), yet MS don't do anything about it.

Edit: Oh ya, but in this case MS is the publisher, so maybe, although I still think they should do something about EA's constant server shutting, maybe make them either not publish online achievements with them or launch a patch after the server is shut down that automatically unlocks the online achievements that would not be unattainable.

I guess this is the result of making an insanely tedious achievement. They eventually stop support because in reality, it takes up way too much time. Yes, it is attainable but it's something that I probably won't go for specifically.

Yeah, a whole 5 minutes per week to change a fucking ribbon ID, IF that. Oh noes!!

Oh shit man I'm only 2 ribbons away from Socialite they better NOT stop events now, what is this? I thought they would stop doing events by the time Judgement came out but not now, wtf! Seriously, can you imagine people that are grinding their way towards S 3.0 right now that are a few events away from onyxing War Supporter and all of a sudden Epic drops the bomb on them and everything they've done has been in vain? Imagine just having onyxed Skunker as one of the few last Onyx medals towards S 3.0 and Socialite is a few events away and this happens... Has Epic officially pulled the plug on events, does anybody know?

No one knows. I'm assuming it's a hiatus because they don't give a shit, but that there will be more events eventually at least until Judgment ships.

I hope for everyone here's sake they fire Pete and hire a trained monkey to do the job better.

two weeks ago i read a post on epic forums, someone posted that they heard a rumour that BTTE was going to last three weeks. I ignored it since there were no reliable sources so maybe the rumor is true after all and maybe we can expect a new event this monday or next friday?

man i agree with u But we all know that they only care about profit margins
they do not give two monkeys wether u can get all the achievements or not whats its to them they dont care there's no comeback for them they just promise to get it right next time round
i'm just so glad i decided to f**k S3.0 off my to do list mostly cus of the total bore of grinding 1800000 kills with each weapon
kinda glad they made it that stupid cus i would be really pi**ed now
i feel kinda smug i dint go for there boring to do top achievement
as it is i feel for all u out there waiting on those numptys to sort it
but don't hold your breath i dont think its going to b any time soon

lifeexpectancy has done a great job on explaining how to get this achievement in his thread http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=370931, but I now have a very bad feeling about this. Let's start with the achievement definition:

Socialite (70) - Earn the Onyx "War Supporter" medal - Play in 30 Gears events.

An expanded definition would read:
Play in a Gears event each week, and start playing Gears events within 22 weeks of the release of the game. You can miss a week or two, but don't miss too many (five).

I played in week one, but like many I didn't realise the upmost importance of playing every week until after week 35.

Why the bad feeling you may ask, well there has been a new event every week for a year and then for the past 3 weeks, nothing. Right now it looks like Epic were only supporting this achievement for 1 year (53 weeks). The last event was called "Brothers to the End" - could that be a reference to the end of events? I really hope I am wrong.

I think the event is just a coincidence, and they are busy doing other things/being lazy.

Stupid question
Im sure its been tried but i havent seen it anywhere...

Where exactly is the patch for the glitch? I mean is it at epics end or as a patch on my xbox? Could i just clear the cache on an event day and use madman rabs method to get all the ribbons?

I know you cant play online without the updates and patches but madman rabs method was done in private pre-patch.

Please for the love of god make a backup first though. Last time i cleared my cache i lost some dlc cheevo progress but everything else was fine. Makes me a little nervous tho

I'm on 19/20...

High comedy

I'm on 29/30. It would be my luck that they just give up changing the events ever again.

There was a glitch that let you get multiple event ribbons towards your count on one event weekend. Basically anyone that knew about it got the socialite medal really early and Epic made a public statement saying they wouldn't penalize anyone for using it since it was their fault. They then patched it for next event and that was that.

The patch that then caused this whole issue. The patch, from what I know, was basically the numbering of events to stop anyone be able to get more than 1 on a weekend.

Really bad foresight....

Oh, okay. I assumed he was talking about something current. That makes sense now that I re-read his post.

Bloody hell if this is true. I'm leaving Thursday night on an overseas business trip for 3 weeks. So I'll potentially miss out on 2 for sure, 3 ribbons at the most. Just some unfortunate luck for me missing up to 5 or 6 weeks of ribbons where I should have gotten half of those while still near my xbox. I'm about to give up on this whole franchise. --> EPIC

I wouldnt count on it, at most you might miss one. At the rate its going, we are lucky to get a halloween event. Thats if we get an event this week at all then you might miss a few but im going with the 2/1 favourite that EPIC wont bother until halloween. Waiting for an event is like watching paint dry right now. It will change but when???

Petenub needs shot with a snub at this poor commitment to his work and getting to go on field trips gaming conventions for doing sweet f*** all. Thanks you EPIC for your poor support and no updates to give us answers about our questions on Socialite.

Guys I was looking at the Epic forums and people were saying that the Brothers to the End event was supposed to last 3 weeks since Cliffy B was leaving and so that they could prepare the Halloween event for this year. As far as I know they are still doing all the multi part holiday events this year but they are doing different things too.

I think I should consider myself lucky since I didn't play this game off and on event wise. All my needed events are back to back.

Yeah new event is a go. Pete Nub said there was a lot of confusion and chaos with Cliffy B going away he said he just got back to put the new event up.

I don'y know whats going on over at epic but they did confirm x3 EXP was to last 3 weeks which is y it took so long.

I hope this is for real it seems like forever since the event was updated.

I remember there being a similar achievement for Left 4 Dead 2 whereby you had to play 6 different events (Valve called them Mutations).

Unfortunately Valve became bored with the idea and rarely updated the mutation so they decided to issue a title update allowing you to manually change the mutation yourself and play them whenever you wanted.

Wouldn't it be nice to Epic did the same with their events and we could play any event at any time without relying on Epic to change it for us.
