I'm glad some one got the achievement before they were blocked.

Okay, I've read this thread about 6 times now and like many before me I'm contemplating making a run at these three cheevos...

Was hoping the experts before me could answer a few questions:
  1. Is there a way to not play the solo matches? I realize that they are being done in 30 second matches for 2-3 hours before deranking in team but is there an auto-pilot method for when you're not in the mood?
  2. Will the main account go up any quicker in solo if he's winning against say four opponents? (or does that logic only apply to "team" play?
  3. Are these guys that are blocking the leaderboard in universal using some sort of leaderboard hack and it is not possible to get by them or are they just getting number 1 and then continuing to rebuild the ladder and boost their "guy" higher...
  4. Is there a strategic method to which board to go for first? Or does it really matter?
thanks in advance.

1. Only if you are working with another person. Only 1 (host) needs to be present. Loser can suicide in an elimination match and give other person the win. But there still has to be someone present to actually run the match.

2. Faster - no. More - yes. You can have a 4 way solo match on a single 360, 1 winner, 3 losers; by the time the losers drop 1 rank, the winner will have gone up 3. This will occur with the winner going up at normal speed and each loser only dropping 1/3 as fast as normal. You could also do an 8 way solo match, 1 winner, 7 losers; but that is not any more effective.

3. Unknown, but I believe they made it to #1 legit, so they probably are just continually rebuilding their ladder to push the #1 even farther up.

4. There is a strategy, but all depends on your situation. If working in a team of 3+ people, while the first person is working on Universal, the other 2 can help each other get Team/Solo when there is down time on ladder rebuilding or if they have enough 360's. For example, person 2 works on winning solo/losing team, person 3 works on winning team/losing solo. If they get their leaderboard achievements before the ladder is ready for person 2 to get Universal, they can switch and 2 works in team wins while 3 works on solo.

But for a single person working on it, do Universal first winning team matches, then derank in solo and get the rest of the wins needed for team, and finally win in solo to get that one.

So, if I understand you correctly, I could build my own ladder of 9 teams/18accounts, push myself up a bazillion times, and the get ultimate achievement.

Then, if i find someone that is going for the "solo" achievement, I could host a solo match and let/make them win over and over while I sleep. I would end up rank 1 in solo and could then auto-pilot wins on team while he/she auto-pilot loses on team. Then I host again and he wins solo, rinse, lather, repeat. Team achievement earned...

If only I had something to offer to "entice" someone to do most of the "solo" work.

I finally got the Universal. Thanks a lot for the guide, MCSS Aerocoupe. I definitely wouldn't have gotten it so efficiently without your information.

Congrats Mister. Even if there is a reset, at least you can prove you got it when it still took dedication (date/time stamp).

Olot, If you get Universal by doing Team, it is best to get Team next, and save Solo for last. But if you get Universal by doing Solo, it is best to get Solo next, and save Team for last. Whichever mode you do to get Universal should be the mode you keep working on for its #1 spot, otherwise you will end up wasting more time... Get to Universal #1 while getting to top 100 in Team, just to turn around and get Solo #1 by dropping to about #65000 on Team before getting up to #1 first, that's bad time management...

For those who are wondering, the current #1 Sham isn't too far from #2 Cody. I had a low 23 derank to my main when I was ranked #3 and I woke up with the achievement. For now I'm not counting myself as the #1 anymore. I'll hopefull be deranked by Monday. I'm going for the Team leaderboard achievement so I can aim for the Solo achievement when the reset happens.

Aerocoupe, I planned on doing it like you suggested. What I was referring to in my previous post is that once I get universal, I would need to win team matches but start losing in solo (deranking in solo). If I could talk someone into doing the work, (i.e. winning against me in solo), then he could go lose in team while I go win in team, rinse and repeat...

Once I have "team" and that person has "solo", I would use my built ladder to push him up on "universal". Once I push him up, I would do the work rebuilding the ladder, (auto pilot), rinse and repeat til he has "universal".

Once that person was "universal", at no personal expense, they would then be grateful enough to finish up and go for their "team". They would then lose to me in solo so that I get ""solo" and they get "team".

It's a little more time consuming this way as well as a little more expensive, but the trade-off for me is minimal grinding. The other person is doing the grinding work, but has no expense of building their own ladder. Ans it's fair because we're both benefiting equally.

But all of this is on hold til the leaderboard "reset" debate is over. Strategy to adjust accordingly.

p.s. - If nobody bites, I will do it exactly as you suggest which is most effecient.

How long does it take to go from being ranked #100 on team to #1? That's my current rank. I was thinking of doing a final push for the Team leaderboard before the reset but I'm not sure if I can reasonably be expected to reach it in time.

If anyone is interested in deranking me, please let me know. On my spare time I derank in solo and rank back up in team. Since I'm already deranking to dummy accounts that don't need them, I might as well offer to derank to people who might need it. The offer is only for deranking in solo mode by the way. It's monotonous and it can't be auto pilot. My current rank is 23 but since my 12 account ladder is in tact, I can rank back up pretty fast.

I looked at the board last night, I don't see anyone high enough to make it unless they have a couple very high accounts able to push them up a lot first... Sorry, but I don't think anyone else will be able to get Universal #1 before the reset unless it gets postponed.

Aerocoupe, Blazin M16 has made it upto 8th and has just started deranking the lowest 25, DX Magic is still 12th and I'm 18th but about to be pushed up by a friend of mine (should make it to 10th). If you were to derank to Blazin or DX Magic as soon as possible we should be able to create a chain effect and with the use of some secondaries I believe all of us can make it before the resest in 32 hours but only with your help so please at least give us a chance.

Im just goin to be postin this every where i can so hoperfully someone at ubisoft answers me.(And yes i have posted it on the ubisfot forums alread)

Alright i think if any one should be pissed off to the max it is me. I was rank number 3 on the universal leaderbord when the bord randomly reset almost an hour after the supposed reset time. I invested quite some time and money just to be cut off short. But hey im lookin on the bright side cause i thought the leaderbord was gonna be reset properly and it wasn't. My main question to you is are u gonna fix this and do a proper reset or should i continue and try and get the achievement. PLEASE let me know ASAP because i do not want to get caught in the top ten again and not be able to get it. Also im not even too sure if anyone can pass these lucky few who got the achievement first because they are ranked number 1 with a level of 3 despite the fact that there is 20s and what not below them. So i beleive that it might not even be possible to have them get deranked because one of my friends is one of the lucky few who got it and he tried to derank with no such luck. So once again all im askin for is a speedy reply to the one question of whether or not YOU GUYS ARE GONNA TRY AND DO ANOTHER RESET OR SHOULD I KEEP AT IT AND GET THE ACHIEVEMENT BY CREATING ANOTHER LADDER??????

This is not a Ubisoft forum, nor does it even belong on this site, let alone this thread. Posting here isn't going to go you any good. Only thing posting it here is going to do is get people mad and/or get yelled at for posting it in the wrong section.

The Reset didn't help anyone who wasn't already going to get the achievements anyway.

Frankly, anyone who has gotten the achievement, myself included, likely feels that a small inkling of envy. It's human nature.

Now having said that, no one will get the achievement that wouldn't have gotten it eventually anyway. One high rank 24 didn't reset for whatever reason so you still need multiple accounts. It's easier now, but the barrier of entry is so large enough to prevent any but the most diehard achievement hunters.

In regards to the Team leaderboard, one person unlocked the achievement with a single win. Some one recently passed him needed a rank 17 IIRC to do it. Given a few days, the requirement for Team is going to skyrocket as well once the regular boosters catch up with their ladders.

A lot of the top people in the Solo were reset but one person is still there with over 10,000 wins so that's close to as hard as it was before.

You'd probably get a 25 and 21.

Hey I'm currently 35 on universal leaderboard and lvl 20 but I ran out out of dummies! So I was wondering if somebody here could lend me a hand or a dummy to get me to lvl 25? I know I know it's kinda sad to come in here and ask this but my dummies are a couple of weeks on untill they're gold time runs out and I still need two more dummy accounts to get lvl 25 by myself. Of course once I get the leaderboard achievement for team I'll derank myself with whoever needs help!

There's no such thing as fast when it comes to GRAW. To get all 3 leaderboards takes somewhere in the neighborhood of 1000 (one thousand) hours. You'll also need around 12 gold accounts and nothing else to do for 6-8 weeks.

Falcon's wisdom and knowledge are paramount when it comes to this game.

On a side note, the universal leaderboard achievement is no longer attainable. mazapantera is intentionally blocking that board.
