It's not about what you play. I think you're missing the point here. The difficulty isn't what to play but WHEN to play, especially with the inconsistency of event start times.

For someone who is sick to death of this game and wants to play as little as possible, playing one warzone match a couple times a week (Wednesday and Saturday to be safe) is still the quickest and least painful method for those that want Socialite and S3.0 without religiously checking the forums for event info, hence the 'worrying about events'.

You may be at 20/30 now, but I sincerely hope for your sake you just started 20 weeks ago. Because if you've been playing Gears 3 for 25, 30, or even 35-40 weeks and are only at 20, then you missed events somewhere along the way and will soon understand others' frustration when events stop counting for you.

I have update the OP and included the event list in the same format as the Event Calendar thread, but corrected to properly reflect the cycles which are wrong in the calendar thread. I hope this continues to help people.

I PM'd a mod to request the title to be changed to "Definitive Events, Ribbons, and War Supporter thread" and to get it stickied to cut down on questions.

Thanks man. I've had the game since day one and only just got this piece of crap achievement. It's a hollow victory, mainly because there's still Seriously 3.0 to go.

I've only just started playing this game since having like a six month break, and this news makes me sad. I have 14 events to go, and god knows whether I'll get that before Judgment comes out, I hope they carry on the Gears 3 events

I hope they do too man, your sake and others like you. Unless they set up some type of auto-rotation and let it run (which so far they've acted like they can't even do), then I fully expect that you won't see anymore events after a 3rd full cycle. Since we're already nearly halfway through cycle 2, we're fast approaching a point where no one newly starting Gears 3 will even be able to finish it, if I'm right that is and they only do 3 full cycles.

My sentiments exactly. I played Gears 1 and 2, just not on this tag. I decided to put Gears 3 on this tag b/c not a lot of people will do S3.0. Never again, and I won't even bother playing their shit now.

I also did not get the ribbon. I just played a game just now and no ribbon popped.

I got the game in January, so there's no way that this ribbon is a repeat for me.

Has anyone had this one pop?

Edit: Nevermind. Got it. Epic guy tweeted that he screwed up and that it's fixed now. So I tried again and got it.

As stated in the OP, you can play any standard matchmaking gametype you want. I played Warzone for all 25 of mine. You probably got this event the first time around.

There better be a third cycle as I should hit 30 during the last event of the cycle. Didn't start playing until event 31 from cycle 1 and played 7 different events in between until now. So I have to get 23 from the remaining 25 from which I definitely have 2 of (according to dates of unlocked achievements).

I truly hope there is a third cycle, but it's almost incomprehensible to see those lazy bastards doing it.

I think there will probably be a 3rd one. We will finish cycle 2 before year's end. I expect a 3rd cycle at least until Judgement comes out to keep pimping it with the judgement ribbon. Maybe a compressed 3rd cycle with 2 events a week from Jan to Mar of 2013.

STILL no ribbon for me since the cycle reset. However, I know for an absolutel FACT I didn't play any of the Gearsmas events. So if I don't get one next week, I am aborting this game and smashing all my copies into dust.
