Epic have fucked up many things, why can't they fuck it up another time in a positive way?

Amen to that, and we supposedly got more "events" than anyone can legitimately lol

Since there are only 35 events and you can only earn each one once. I have over 60 events completed lmao

It would be nice if they made an individual ribbon for each event and added them to the ribbon page so you could see which you need. That way every time an event happens they can announce which ribbon you get and then players can cross referrance with their list.

Angry Grrrrr

I know it's not the end of the world, but I am really ticked about this. I needed one more event and took a few weeks off, thinking it didn't matter. Now, who knows if/when I'll get it now?

Poll makes no sense to me, as nobody here actually knows. If I had to guess, I'd say both are probably true.

I just put the poll on there as a kind of "What's your opinion?" thing. Like I said my opinion is that they're just too fucking lazy, although the explanation that they want to keep their numbers up seems equally likely. What a bunch of fucktards.

Yet somehow they can't patch the whole 'maximum unique ribbons' issue... Whatever.

As for your second question, that's one you ought to pose directly to Epic. Of course they could have more than one event per week. There have been several instances of that already. But in their infinite (lack of) wisdom they simply choose not to for the most part. They could have an event every day if they wanted to.

I won't purchase another Epic game again. I assure you of that.
Exactly, each game counted as an event. They also said guardian would be available in private which turned out to be a total lie. They also said it would be impossible to add it. Also a complete lie. So they can spend a couple of years making a game but they cant debug their own code? Pathetic. Every dlc has had huge issues too.

I was one of those to get the socialite glitch (by accident) during the horde command pack release but this actually makes me angry. How do they get away with treating people like this? Its disgusting and makes me feel like an idiot for putting so much time into their games

There is nothing epic about epic games. Never again will epic see a dollar from me.

I'm in this boat too. 29 ribbons out of 30 I've gotten and I have no idea which one I'm missing.

Should be a "both" option on the poll.

Of course they were going to run out of original ideas for events. What they should have done is set it up like Valve did for L4D2 and just count participation in the weekly event, not count the number of SPECIFIC events.

As for their excuse for not being able to change it (or any of the other stupid decisions) that's complete bullshit. They are simply done working on this game and have abandoned making improvements.

The sad thing is enough people will keep dumping money into Epic's pockets that they won't get the picture about how screwed up they've handled War Supporter.

Damn, feel sorry for you guys having to slog through this with no idea when it will end... I was lucky enough to get mine by accident before the glitch was patched - was weapon boosting on checkout (KOTH) when BANG: socialite suddenly popped during the first week of playing!

Wish they could just remove the patch and let everyone get it... seems unfair that people starting now cannot get as easily as day one buyers!

I agree whole-heartedly. I wouldn't even resent the time I've lost on this damn thing if they un-did the patch tomorrow, because I would be too giddy unlocking the damn achievement and S3.0. Immediately after that I would experience even greater joy when I snapped the fucking game disc in half just for fun, knowing I'll never again play another Epic title.

Original post updated to contain latest event tagging information as I understand it, given that this week's ribbon had a 'new name' but is still a recycled event # from week 4.

Oh you're right, this last one that started late was week 39, or week 4 of the 2nd round of the 35 week cycle. Updating OP. Thanks!

When I initially read the beginning of this discussion, I thought it was all rumor. I still kept getting the event ribbons and my goal towards Socialite went up every weekend. This past weekend however I played the Event, "One Shot ...whatever" and sure enough no ribbon received and I'm stuck at 17/30.

After I achieved the Onyx Medals for Campaign, Beast, and Horde, my gameplay went from several hours a days to zero for many weeks, only logging in one time a weekend to get the event ribbon.

Now, I'll put this game to rest for good. Why? I've been playing video games for well over 30 years. I've encountered several games where completing all achievements and such was sometimes very grueling and almost impossible. However it was plausible that it was reachable. This game however, is the first I have encountered where reaching 100% completion is beyond impossible. I am very disappointed in Epic with their Seriously 3.0. I understand the only real way to get 3.0 is to boost the game. I've never believed in such a thing, I have always been behind the controller in every game I have played to reach the final goal. I find this to be very absurd and it makes me seriously question the intent of a game designer by creating such an impossible and unrealistic feat.

Anyway, I decided Seriously 3.0 was just not on my agenda, I would go for the Embry Medal. And one of the 30 Onyx medals I set out to achieve would be the Socialite Onyx Medal. That way I would work on the other 7 Onyx medals through Vs. mode and continue to play the game. Now that I find out what Epic has done about the Socialite medal, I feel as if someone just rammed a 4x4 up my @ss. I think Epic really went the wrong way about this. Maybe in the short term they achieved their goal, keeping people playing this game in high numbers in a short amount of time. But in the long term, you have many players that dropped off very quickly leaving pissed off. I am one of them.

In the future, I will have a sour taste in my mouth about Epic and any of its games. I've never felt this animosity towards a game designer before, so it certainly is a first for me in 30 years. Well done Epic, you achieved something that no other designer has yet to create, a growing disdain attitude towards your company.

Just to be clear on this, this past weekend was Team DM snipers and so was the weekend before that, correct?

No, this past weekend was shotguns and snipers, but they didn't put the event up until late Monday rather than Friday like they were supposed to. The event before that was One Shot One Kill...which I think had something to do with snipers too, but I always just play a quick Warzone match to get the event ribbon as TDM matches take too damn long to finish.

Once again though DO NOT get hung up on the event or ribbon names. This coming weekend, the weekend starting Friday June 16th, will be WEEK #5 of the second rotation of 35 weeks. Keep track of the week numbers you play, not what the event is called.

Event counted

Hi guys, I played King of the Hill with a couple of other people today in the regular playlist and I got a ribbon after the match which was weird since I never received a ribbon for one shot,one kill and I only need one more to onyx it- so maybe everyone might want to play a game of that.

Pete Nub the guy incharge of these event playlists says we're on week six in the rotation so event #5. When the cycle restarted it didn't restart on #1 because that was locked in TU4 for our Flaming Retro lancers. So the cycle restarts on 2 - 35 making only 34 ribbons currently available period.

Stranded KOTH when it was an event was a weekday event the first go and thats why I didn't count for a ribbon. Back then weekday events didn't count. This cycle they do cause the special events are now week long.

That's odd because the first recycled ribbon was called "Welcome Back". They started renaming the ribbons after that.

Where did he say they skipped #1?

His tweet says he belives it's week 6. (Believes?! He's they one running the events and he's not sure?!)

Mother of God. How is it EVERY time I come to this thread the Gears news only gets worse.

Believes?!? I certainly hope he's only getting paid minimum wage, anything more than that would be a crime.

Jesus... Well if it is confirmed that the cycle only does weeks 2-35 from here on in, I'll update the OP again with the latest info. I refuse even to look at Epic's forum or Twitter out of sheer disgust with all the ass kissing and circle jerking they do. If someone can confirm this info and reply, two people saying it will be enough for me and I'll update the OP.
