Veteran Capturer GLITCHED?

I know for a fact that I have played more than 20 games online with 4 people or more. Is there a trick to getting this achievement to unlock?

Here's what I don't get about people who make a post, and then never update once they've gotten the achievement. The original poster got his 20 matches Veteran achievement and the second guy managed to get his Novice achievement...

So it's probably not glitched, however the numbers obviously don't add up... as I still haven't got either novice nor veteran although I've played for two days now and got all the other ones, but not those two. And not only that, but I've played ranked matches mostly, and it says I have 0 wins and 0 loses and 3 kills and 3 deaths. So who knows what's going on there... anyone else experience this?

After doing some more research, it seems that the host gets the match numbers counted correctly, while everyone else is hit or miss. So be the host whenever possible, otherwise it might take in excess of 80 matches to get those two 0 point achievements.

UPDATED: After two days straight of not getting "novice" or "veteran," I created a player match as host, set for the shortest times for everything and 5 captures to win and waited for one player to join. Started the game and more people joined as the game progressed. We were over 10 people in the match after a couple minutes.

After five completed matches "novice" finally popped up, and about 15 games later, "veteran" did too.

So be the host, because apparently, my 30 previous games never counted when using the "quick match" option.

Do you have to start the game from the beginning as well? I know that I have joined in on a lot of games but it still says I only have 6 wins and 2 losses. I know I have played way more than that.

Can this be either player or ranked? I am getting tired of playing for hours and it still only saying I have played 10 matches. RIDIC!

I know I've talked about this chievo a lot but it somehow just magically appeared. I have no idea how. I joined a game late and there was a ton of people playing. 2 rounds later the game ended and BAM achievement was mind. BLEW MY MIND!

Hm, I really wish for that to happen to me as well. These two achievements are really annoying. I have hosted and also played a lot of games but nothing as of yet. It is lucky that these are 0 point achievements otherwise it would really be bad. Guess I will just have to drive on and hopefully get lucky at some point.

I was thinking about trying to get the 0 point achievements for the heck of it, since it'd just be more achievements unlocked but if I might have to play way more than 20 games, no thanks.

I was hoping to 100% this game but novice and veteran capturer is glitched for me. On the leaderboard it says I have won 0 matches and lost one match even though I have played several matches. I did host one match and lost so I guess hosting is the trick to the achievement. I guess I will just settle for the 1000 and forget about those achievements if I have no luck today. But I ended up unlocking novice capturer after hosting a few matches so I guess I will keep hosting and get the other one.

Hosting was the key for me. I had as mentioned earlier in this thread played a lot of games and hosted some. I started to host again and one of the achievements popped up almost immediately.

In game it's a leaderboard when you click on ranked match I think. But it does not even matter host on a player match or a ranked match it's all the same for the achievements.

Interesting...I am having trouble unlocking the achievements as well. However, they don't seem glitched as many people have them...including people on my FL. I guess just keep playing until they unlock?

Well, when people call them glitched I think they merely mean that they do not unlock the way the are supposed to. I had great trouble unlocking the one for playing 5 games. It seems it might have to do with hosting but that is not mentioned at all in the achievement description. I would therefore agree with the fact that they are a little glitched but still quite possible to get.

It's not like everything is glitched, if you don't get it right away What the 'problem' is, is indeed that you have to be the host for a match to count towards the achievement. It unlocked for me after 20, or maybe 21 or 22 matches, I didn't count them exactly. But I'm very sure that just joining a match doesn't get you anything.

No, you can play player matches and invite friends to the match (easy for blowing yourself up when boosting, for example). As long as you are the host and set up the match, it'll count towards the achievement for you.

Easiest way to boost it, is to host twenty-or-so matches and then switch to the next player for his turn to get the capture achievements

Host party matches for Veteran Capturer

I hosted 3 (I guess) party matches last year when the game was released then got bored of one of the most awful multiplayer I've ever seen. Today, I hosted 17 more and I unlocked both Novice and Veteran Capturer, so host and you should get them.

I had played 50+ none-hosting games. A few buddies helped me boost games in a server I was hosting, I got Veteran Capturer on the 3rd round I hosted on. It does seem like hosting is the trick to getting the games to count towards the achievement.

I don't know if that's fully true cause mine popped up after I joined a game with only 2 rounds left and got vet capturer after the win. I don't know why, but that's how I got mine. I didn't host more than 10 games due to the fact that not a lot of people are on and most of the time when people joined my game they would back out cause it was taking too long to get 4 people. I don't know how many games I officially played, but it was a lot. The leaderboard says 8 wins and 2 losses, but that is obviously not right.

No, it can be broken up over a few days. You have to have at least four people in a match at all times. So if you start with four and hit three, that match will not count. Also, hosting is key. It is not always necessary, but you will have to play so many more matches if you do not host. Also, you can do this in ranked or player matches. Sorry. I am just trying to share what I learned because so many people seem to be confused. Hope it helps someone.

No it doesn't, but you really wanna be host or it won't register right. The only reason I did it in one sitting was to make sure I got it because so many people were online. Not one match did we have fewer than 8 people.

I've hosted well over 30 matches since getting the novice capturer achievement and still don't have veteran, so hosting only works sometimes. It's a crapshoot I think.
