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'm on 19/20...

Bored now! 25/30... Roll on Halo 4!

Massive shame they did it this way, just frustrating playing every week for nothing, I know I've gone from week 1 to whatever week we are at on the second run and pretty sure I did quite a few before that so I'm running out of events...

What I suggest is that the next person to actually get a ribbon posts here to give the rest of us hope!

Yes, please, someone post if a new ribbon pops up... I'm not playing every day, but the second I see someone say it's updated, I'm throwing it back in.

Maybe a new ribbon might pop up for that 1 day event. The Pink Lancer thing for Cancer. I am guessing it is a wildcard event with a new number like the play on Day 1 event.

OP UPDATED WITH PINK LANCERS FOR CANCER EVENT (supposedly will be October 12th).

I hope it happens and I hope those of you in need get a ribbon.

The news of this "event" didn't come through the normal channels (aka Pete's twitter), but we can only assume (and hope) that it will actually count towards War Supporter. Link: HERE

IMPORTANT: As of this writing, the website linked in my TA solution that is advertising this "event" lists it as ONLY RUNNING FROM NOON to NOON, Oct 12 to the 13th. That means this is only a 24 HOUR EVENT, not the week-long (or nearly month-long) we've grown accustomed to.

So if it does count towards War Supporter, ya better make dang sure you don't miss it!

Hello everybody!
This Pink Lancer Marathon does not count towards War Supporter... I asked about it on the official forums and that is what they told me:


"This is a community made event. It isn't an official event that counts for a ribbon toward War supporter."

"this does not count for War Supporter , this is an event made by some Hardworking wonderful community members who do not work for EPIC"

Here's the original forum link : http://forums.epicgames.com/threads/...9#post30774049

I just don't understand why they can't at least finish this second cycle. I, like most of the people I have seen posting on here, am within 5 events from being finished. I don't understand only doing a run for a literal year. Shouldn't they be pushing this pretty hard until Judgement comes out or something? This just seems really unfair to a lot of people who weren't able to get the game when it first came out or even within the first six months of it's release.

Well for one I'm sure epic isn't worried about supporting a meaningless thing such as an achievement it has no value and it isn't the end of the world if some people aren't able to obtain it...look at many date sensitive achievements require you to play on 1 single day and after that its unobtainable

But on the brighter side Pete just posted on twitter that a new event is coming in the next few days

Cheers!

Yesss! Finally got Socialite! Torque Bow Tag was the one that did it. Thought it would never happen for me. I now no longer need to undergo extensive psychotherapy...

Good luck to everyone else that's still going for the achievement.
