What I did was spam the a button three times in a row fast, then 3 time moderately quick. Then wait 3 to 5 seconds and do it again. It took a bit of time and then finally worked for me. You will know you got it when a local sever when timer starts counting down, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1....

A friend of mine was getting it every time he tried it with the above strategy the first time. It took me several tries to finally get it to do a local server.

Just keep trying, maybe it is the time of day? Good Luck!!

Wrotten Sandwich above me has it right. We use his method ourselves (my team and I) and we did not get frozen out once. Just be patient and don't hit the button too many times.

If the A button mashing trick doesn't work (or your xbox keeps freezing), you can force the game onto a local server by tampering with the internet connection:

This method has been confirmed to work and requires two controllers and a wired internet connection through a router. Set up a versus lobby for Crash Course or Sacrifice, friends only, with your 2nd controller signed in as your guest. Notice in the top left corner of the screen it says "Select START THE GAME to Begin." Before starting the game, you want to find the Ethernet cable that connects the router to the modem (NOT the connection between the console and the router). Right as you hit "start game" you want to unplug that connection from the back of the modem. The top left corner of the screen should now say "Searching for Dedicated Server." After a few seconds, the top left corner of the screen will change to "Starting Game in 5 seconds" and start counting down. Reconnect the cable to the router and that's it. Once the game has loaded, you can invite friends in and since the game is on a local server, any sacrifice and crash course achievements that are fulfilled will be unlocked.

This is how I unlocked all the sacrifice and crash course cheevos
