I played about forty matches total and only received the 'Novice Capturer' achievement. Went and hosted about 15 matches and got 'Veteran Capturer'.

From my perspective, I have to say that hosting definitely makes a difference.

Even on the minimum time it still take 15 minutes a game and you do 20 of them thats 300 minutes of you time and when you don't get it in them 20 you know it just takes too long! I have a few people that i have added form this but i need a few more people if we could just kill are selfs it should just take 2 mins per game which will get use through 30 games in an hour.

Just enough incase its glitched?

If you are interested add me

I've played around 40 matches without being the host, and I absolutely, positively don't have the novice or veteran capturer achievements yet. I'll host a few and see what happens... irritating.

Yes, hosting worked for me. All I did was host around 15-20 games and it popped for me. Those games were of course spread out between 3-4 days. It really isn't that bad of a game to play online. A little laggy but what game isn't?

I'm well pleased, at last novice and veteran finally popped!

Played on and off over the last year, hosting and not hosting, basically had ever given up hope on getting these two sorted.

Anyway...Last weekend played some quick matches, sure enough, nothing popped, so as a last chance attempt I hosted.

20 games later, novice popped, couldn't believe it, so carried on doing about 35-40 games, no joy, so gave up that day. On the Sunday, fired it up, hosted for about another 30 games and bingo! veteran.

...Only took me just over a year to get two zero 'g' achievement's, but wow, what a feeling.

Just wanted to let folks know....don't give up, it will happen BUT you must host if you want to guarantee a result, even though it isn't supposed to affect things!

Lets consolidate theories

So we all know Veteran Capturer is a complete pain to get, today our group did well over 20 matches, probably closer to 100. Here is what we tested.

20 matches as host in a row= no luck
Alternated wins and losses= possibly no effect
Changed map every few matches=possibly no effect
20 matches without having any players Court Martial=no luck
Changed host every few matches= see below

One slightly promising lead is the fact that one of our group received Veteran after hosting 2 matches. I have no idea how many matches he played total, but know that those 2 or 3 matches were the first he ever hosted. So although you may not have to be the host for the majority of the games, you may have to end as the host, as something similar happened for another player achieving Novice.

We're smart people. Lets continue to narrow this issue down and end the frustration once and for all. Unless if course the game operates on random madness. Then there is no hope.

for me, Novice unlocked after about 10+ matches. wish i noticed what i did during that round. all i know is that you dont have to be squad leader for it to count.
this stupid 0 G achievement will hunt us all for a while

speaking of it. anyone going to do it later?

I hosted for 6 hours straight last night and got it (along with all the rest). The play 1 & 5 achievements popped when they should have but I didn't count how many I hosted up to 20 (it felt like more).

I just got the achievement for the 20th game played. I had gotten the 5 games played achievement last fall after reading about being the host for it too count. I started yesterday afternoon hosting and this seems to be THE way for it too unlock. I did change maps after each match. Maybe that helps? I dunno, seems like a very glitchy achievement

Update:
So I'm probably beating a dead horse, but I thought I should add to the list of people who think being host is key. Myself and a few others before me finally managed to unlock Veteran after becoming host and playing a series of matches (in my case, 11 matches, I had already gained Novice a few days earlier). Don't know why it was 11, but I can tell you that if you've hosted and played 20 matches and Veteran still hasn't unlocked, quit and try hosting some matches another day.

Game is full of trash and is extremely full of lag. No matter your connection you get screwed. There are a bunch of boosting noobs especially from UK who have no life with 100,000+Gamerscore. Sit down!

I can confirm that you have to be the host and play 20 games to get this achievement.

I got mine just while ago.

BTW, only die-hard fans and people who want all achievements would get it, since it's zero game point.
