Master and Commander

Ok, so i've read pretty much every guide on here and surfed the web and have a pretty good understanding of how to acquire this achievement. In order for it to unlock, you must have an Effective military strength of over 4000. Currently my Total Military Score is 7384 and My readiness rating is 98% giving me an EMS of 7236. I used a guide to help me search every system for war assets and I've also followed a guide to complete just about every side quest. However, my achievement will still not unlock when I attempt to take the illusive mans base. Is there something I'm not aware of? I even downloaded the extended cut dlc to lower the required minimum of the EMS. In addition to that, I tried beating the game and and having it reload me right before the mission to see if a second attempt would work and it still has not. WTF is going on?

Try clearing the Xbox cache first and foremost.

Have the same problem. Score is over 7000. Finished the game, no Master and Commander achievement. I've also cleared the xbox cache, and then did went to the Cerberus base and started that mission. Got on the base and in the first firefight over and over. Still no achievement.

Doing another playthrough to try that. Anyone have another idea?

You tried the cache thing? Maybe try reinstalling, if it's installed. Not sure it'll do anything, but it couldn't hurt, really.

GRRR! I'm having the same problem! TMS is 7157 and Galactic Readiness is 100%. Started the Cerberus mission and it never unlocked... played through it and it still didn't. Luckily, I still have a load just prior to starting but I've tried several times to reload the assault on the base but still nothing. I've tried clearing Xbox Cache... Sigh! Now I'm hesitant to play the final Earth mission... Will I still get the perfect ending if this achievement hasn't triggered? I'm concerned it won't recognize how high my EMS is. Anyone have ANY idea why this achievement won't unlock?

This is probably a stupid question, but both of you are playing through to the decision (3 choices) at the end correct? From what I got out of your post it just sounded like you were playing the Cerberus mission over and over. This achievement pops if you make your choice at the end and have the required war assets.

Just finished Mass Effect 3 for the second time from start to finish...even let the credits play. First time EMS was over 7000, did the synergy ending. Cleared the cache. This time my EMS was between 5000 and 6000, did the destroy ending. No Master and Commander achievement. Anyone have any ideas?

It unlocks during the cutscene when you assault the Illusive Man's base.

Did you play a new character, or load a previous game you'd finished?

Peplow, thanks! That worked for me too. I used the save file from my first playthough.
