EA and 2K strike again! FIFA 10, FIFA 10 World Cup, & NBA 2K11 servers shutting down!

FIFA 10 - including Ultimate Team DLC and FIFA 2010 World Cup shutting down December 6th, 2011

http://www.trueachie....r-closures.htm




Lots of online achievements in all these games so get cracking if you want to get them out of the way.

***EDIT*** NBA 2K11 has been given a stay of execution, 2K now says the servers will be online until April 2012. Either way, I would get the achievements out of the way ASAP ***EDIT***

NBA 2K11 servers could be shutdown as soon as November 16th. Here is a TA link to the story:




Thanks to the folks at TrueAchievements for compiling the news stories.

Here is a link that contains the full list of which servers are closing and when:

EA Server Shutdown list

It appears that EA's current strategy is to only support the 2 most recent releases for their sports games. It is always a good idea to knock out the online stuff as quickly as possible in these games as not only do they shut down servers, but there often are other season specific achievements that can become unachievable due to server changes or what not. The 2K Sports games are pretty bad with this as well as they tend to change how their servers work which impacts some of their achievements shortly after release.

I also setup a Gamerscore leaderboard there since the CAG leaderboard seems to be gone for good:

Hey GLOCK I am interested.

I just gamed with GLOCK over the weekend and he is a great CAG. We boosted the Def Jam online achievements before the shut down the servers. Which btw I think they did not shut them down because all of the late activity.

I would be interested in lots of stuff. I am looking to get some people together for Blacksite, Dark Sector and Turok. Plus others.

Seconded, he's also got the full 1000 in Hour of Victory I believe, that game sucks some major ass.

I had to stop at 925, I just couldn't go through till the end :cry:

:lol: Thats awesome if they decided not to shut down the servers cos everyone jumped on at the last minute.

I just picked up Dark Sector from yesterdays Amazon DOTD, so I can help out with that one as well.

I read it online but I have not played the game since I beat the single player. I have to beat it on hard and get the ladies man ach. But I also would like to mention that Benjamouth helped out on Def Jam also this weekend and is another great CAG!

Let me know when you get Dark Sector. I think I might try to beat that a Ninja Gaiden this weekend. I can't wait until the end of the day so I can start vacation! I am so not into working right now and CAG 2.0 is great!

Yea, I was considering picking up Dark Sector during that sale too but passed on it, but if you guys want to boost it I'll pick it up somewhere. Actually a guy on my Friends list boosted it recently and had a good method for doing the online, but he still said it was pretty time consuming.

What I need right now is someone who has NCAA March Madness 08 to do the online achievements. I need to finish that game and get it back to GameFly ASAP!

That's good to hear about Def Jam, btw. I mean, I know it's not that great, but I was gonna play it sooner or later...it was quite surprising to see EA try to close the casket (so to speak) so quickly.

haha, at least I can actually shoot the beavers in Cabela's, not like when I get my ass handed to me by you CoD4 guys! ;)

I think one of the reasons I am still Score Whoring is for the comments I get from the CAG CoD4 guys. I always get a good laugh at the messages I get from Simon, Chase and yourself when I throw in Cabela's Trophy Bucks!

Great, glad you are in on the fun! What games do you have? I am going to put together a list of the games I have too and we could setup a list of who needs what.

Also I was thinking it would be a good idea to setup a Silver account on XBL and get everyone on that Friends list so we can easily look for other CAGs who want to boost. Can anyone think up a clever name for the group? I was just thinking CAG GS or something like that, but I'm sure someone can think up something better than that.

This is a awesome idea. I'm already a member of two other communities for this purpose, 360Voice and 360Achivments, but honestly I'd rather work together with CAGs for this. Plus as mentioned there's the trading option.

Great Idea! count me in! Maybe this could also turn into shitty games group as well since I'm sure we'll be stooping to the lowest levels of games to get acheivements.

Thanks for joining up everyone! It should be a good group of CAGs dedicated to Achievements! ;)

Just in case anyone missed the post on the front page of CAG today. The GameStop coupon this week is 25% off used 360 games so this is a great opportunity to pick up some games you are interested in boosting for cheap. With an Edge card the games are 35% off! I went out and picked up All Pro Football, Lego Indy, History Channel: Civil War and Bully this morning and I'm sure I will be hitting GS alot this week for others!

Does anyone else have any other ideas on names for the CAG GamerTag name for our boosting group or shoudl we go with one of the ones WaltJay suggested?

Haha, I picked that up about a week back. I could use the achievements in it. The game is pretty bad, but I got it for less than $10, so it's not that bad I guess.

I just picked up Bully too. Great game.

So yeah, I joined the group. Definitely interested in this. I've only got 2100 GS, and could definitely go for some more! :D

Just joined. I work evenings 3-11pm and mostly can only play after midnight central time. That and my social anxiety issues has kept me from playing online much with strangers. Hopefully this will help.

I own quite a few 360 games just haven't gotten around to opening most.
