Haha, just kidding, I'd probably come up with something reasonable.
One day last week I was in a shitty mood and almost changed mine to DoA4, GH3, and GRAW. How many people do you think have completed those

That's not entirely true actually. The rule has been in place since 2007 way back in Pandora's run that for the Max Clubs that it was based on full gamerscore not % of achievments won. 0g achievements didn't count towards full completion. I personally disagree with it, but there are a TON of people in the Halo 3 club and the Call of Duty WaW club that do not have the 0g achievements finished. It's also the reason why an Xbox Live Labs club was never created because even though it counts towards a leaderboard completion, it doesn't count as having it's own club since it has a total gamerscore of 0.

Since awards are involved, everything will be proactive with this. Club Awards will never be taken away from members. DLC will be added to the clubs as they come out. For instance, the Majestic map pack for Halo 4 that came out today will more than likely be added to Clue's club in the next few days once a "first" posts and it gets created in the retail board. From that point moving forward, everyone that applies for the staff club will have to have that completed as well. New future games can be added to staff clubs as well as long as it fits with that staff members theme of their club. If a staff member leaves for some reason, the club will stay in place so you can still earn the award, but we'll probably designate in the club itself that said staff member has "retired". In a nut shell, we will always move forward with this and keep everything fresh and new.

This whole idea was created just for us to have a fun and unique way for the staff members to give their own personal touch to the max clubs and have the forum members something new to shoot for in the max clubs. We hope you guys enjoy this!

Times have changed and (I believe) so have all the max club team members, so maybe this topic should be revisited. It doesn't make sense that we require DLC achievements but not zero-pointers.

If you make the argument that 100% complete means maximum gamerscore, then if you are missing DLC achievements, you are not at maximum gamerscore for a game, but if you are missing a 0 point achievement, you are at maximum.

Is sarcasm? Crash Course is super easy (imo) since I completed that in 2 days And give Alice a chance. If you follow the collectibles guide, it's an easy 1000G.

As for my club, bplayak said games can be added to clubs, so I plan on adding Sonic Adventure 2 to my list once I complete it.

Well myself and Hatters have been max club directors for about 2 and a half years now and there was a vote amongst a group of us about a year and a half ago and I lost 1-4. So the rule has definitely been discussed.

And this is the exact argument and line of thinking of all the proprietors of the rule so more than likely, it will stay the same. It would be a huge pain to change anyway now and I REALLY hope MS will forever do away with 0g achievements.

This is cool! But the only problem is, is that it requires you to own a lot of random games, games that I personally don't have for the most part (although, I could've probably done Covert Dog's list as I loved AC6 and was nearly finished with it when I knocked my console over and killed it and am interested in Over-G). It sucks being poor.

Don't you think you guys could make a super special list for me out of only games that I own? You can just pretend that I'm staff and everything will be great, I swear.

lol, who am I kidding, I can't even complete my games. :P

Guitar Hero Aerosmith
Guitar Hero World Tour
Guitar Hero Metallica
Halo 3
The Walking Dead


There you go, made out of games you own!
But seriously, those are the only reason your completion% is down. That and Wolfenstein. Otherwise you'd be be over 90% completion I think.

Ahhhh! But I don't have Halo 3 anymore, I'm HORRIBLE at Guitar Hero and I don't have all of The Walking Dead episodes. lol, I totally failed that challenge. Thanks for trying!

That's true, though, those games ruin my percentage.

This is a great little idea.
I don't fit into any of clubs however. I'm like 1 game shy from 7+. Still, will provide me with different games to play.

As for Pants' club, i'm good with looking at the group meetings through the skylight. I don't have that many hours to spare at the minute

I really want in on the EPIC club. Just Bulletstorm and UT3 in my way.

Well then good news! It was Dance Central, not DDR. And that pic that Kinect snapped of me dancing when my pants split in an unfortunate location was in a 5 star performance. Kinect appreciates the dance with no pants.

On a more serious note, I'm counting at least 6 clubs that I am close to and have an interest in completing the remaining game(s).

It wasn't. You won't find any ESRB rated ones, they are all PEGI on Xbox 360.

The disc is still region free though, although almost impossible to import.

The MUA2 DLC is supposedly completable without buying the DLC thanks to the compatability patch that they released. If you can find someone with the DLC (don't ask me, I don't own the game), you can get them to invite you into the missions you need in order to get the achievements.

Nah, it's just expensive to import. Easiest way is to have a British friend mail it to you.

Same thing for me, there were clubs that had games I enjoy, but not much had games that I REALLY enjoy. I was really hoping to see a club devoted to the racing genre, turns out not a single racing game made an appearance

You can blame DEADLY DOG for that. He had a racing Club but it had to keep getting changed and he couldn't make up his mind. So in the end he changed it.

Awesome, I need to sort out some corrections with the Maximum clubs in order to get the 2 I know I can get. I am gonna make a point to get Gackt's :P Since all 3 games are on my tag anyways.

This gives me something else to do, and I might be spurred to attempt Lost planet since Jackanape's club requires it and has Dark Souls in it. So I must get it lol Edit: Squeals in fear when he remembers Hexic HD is on Jackanape's :/
I'm not gonna lie - I put Hexic in there at the last minute just to be a dick, ha ha! POOH BAH FOR THE WIN!!!! Lost Planet I actually enjoyed though....

Also, for all of those mocking Minty's club, he technically didn't come up with it directly (as he is AWOL) but I thought it would be what he wanted. Those are the baddest games around after all.

And this is the exact argument and line of thinking of all the proprietors of the rule so more than likely, it will stay the same. It would be a huge pain to change anyway now and I REALLY hope MS will forever do away with 0g achievements.
Hmmm, well when this topic was originally mooted, along with the new and improved leaderboards etc it was mentioned that the site stance is that in order for a game to count as complete it HAS to be complete. That means all DLC, all ZERO point achievements - everything. Same rule applied in the recent completion competition too.

This has always been our policy so I'm not sure why there is a different rule for the maximum clubs to be honest. I've never worked on the clubs so I don't know - but the site stance has always been 100% achievements AND gamerscore are needed to complete a games - I wouldn't sign up to a club otherwise and I believe the new leaderboards are being built with that tenant in mind. If you look at your checklists then you will see that you need 100% in achievements and completion for a game to be able to be 'hidden' as complete too.

So this may want addressing sooner rather than later. Why don't you ask Pant's - I'm sure he'd be calm and rational on the subject?

(TOP TIP: Don't ask Pants. His head might explode.)

Also, in terms of My Horse and Me 2 - ironically I borrowed it from someone in the US. Certainly wasn't going to buy it.

Umm.. YES! I had a racing club. It consisted of Doritos Crash Course, Doritos Crash Course, Doritos Crash Course, and Wordament (iOS) [since that's a racing game with words!].

As you can see that didn't fly--the uppers shot it down quickly and mocked me for not having any good completed games. I took my revenge! I TOOK IT!

Jappe was trying to come up with a racing theme also, but didn't have enough region free games completed. Might be because he drives a tiny little snow covered car instead of something like this:

Woah woah woah, who told you about my failed attempt at boosting Forza 2 and how it took me too long to finish the race? WHO?!?
