Halloween->Halloween Event->War Supporter 5/5->Achievement Unlocked->Gears of War 3->Traded-In

5 just unlocks the Golden Gear skin. 30 events for the Onyx and the achievement. It's going to be next year sometime...

i don't think I got the credit for playing online during release...and did we confirm that private solo idling boosting is not a bannable offense?

all signs point to you wont get banned. Everyone ive read about being banned on epic forums modded. I wouldnt idle boost in online matches, but private should be fine.

If private idle boosting were a bannable offense I would be the first person bitching about it in here. I think it's safe to say we're in the clear.

Yup, 4/5 (really 4/30 :cold:) is the max you can have right now, unless you played prior to the release day title update when every online match counted +1.


Bummer guess I missed one already as I only have 3/5 so far. Thought I played all the listed events so far on their calender too.

hahahaha...thanks, I'm sure I won't be doing it on the level of most but firing up a private match before i run an errand might be something I'll start doing plus I never idle boost in online matches.

(probably asked before) is there something awarded for being Beast mode on Hardcore difficulty? so far I've yet to get into a group that can get past wave 10/12...and it's frustrating. Also that armored septapede whatever is the terminator. (pricey but oh so good)

Don't waste your time with Hardcore (you only get a gold medal), just play on Insane instead. But remember, you have to complete all 12 waves without failing to get the Onyx medal and the Savage Theron.

TIPS: Use the Wretches on waves 1-5 because they can jump over fences (not laser fences)
Use the Savage Grenadier. He is so AMAZING.
When you unlock the Beserker, focus on destroying fortifications for your team (you also get bonus time).

@ - pp, the groups ive been with I've generally played wretches mostly and dominated the first couple of wave...then I switch to kantus for healing while the rest of the team finally catches on that wretches can "jump" over barbed wire. Boomer for a wave or two, and finally just the seprapede etc. by then most of the other ppl who stayed and have a grasp on teamwork played bipedal horde w/guns.

personally i just want to be able to beat beast mode at least 1st on any difficulty, then get w/a group who won't bail on insane mode.

I have been tempted to join games, build the headquarters, and quit. 100 founder ribbons, would take forever otherwise (and it would still take a ton of time doing it that way too.

All weekend I had this happen to me!
Don't be that guy. they didn't even play a single wave! happen 7 times (No BS!) would pick a random ass spot and then they would quit.

now it makes sense, i was always wondering WTF? after a guy drops out in the first way like every other game. if we ever play and i drop it's because of my ISP but so far the connection has been very stable.

You can do it in private with a 2nd controller and it would probably be faster than searching online, rushing for the first command post and quitting.

there's no ranked disconnects for horde/beast?

apparently my ranked disconnects are from setting up my own private arcade campaign session, finding some cogs then quiting out to find the next ones.

(shrugs) personal reasons, im sure ill get over it too...i remember one time I was playing WoW and someone in a raid killed a civillian and everyone was up in arms because it was marked on their stat tab. i thought perhaps if ranked d/c's might factor into an exp ban or something. while Gears is not Reach, i'm still a bit cautious as to how they monitor things such as that.

The worst that can happen is you supposedly being paired up with fellow quitters and 4,500 EXP penalty for Versus games. I have about 35 - 40 split between Horde, Beast and Arcade - I couldn't care less. Considering everything except private matches and vanilla campaign seems to nets you random disconnects depriving yourself of online multiplayer is the only way to avoid them completely. That MP banning bullshit though is one of the main reasons I stopped playing Reach in the first place. No one should be penalized that harshly for refusing to stay in lost cause games when they aren't cheating. Bungie went WAY too far trying to police how people choose to play something they paid for IMO.

Speaking of the Halo franchise thanks for reminding me of what I need to sell next. I have way too many games collecting dust here that I know I will never play again. XBL seriously needs to patch a delete achievement feature already.

Ok cool, too bad you can only get the ribbon once per session. Looks like I will be spending a lot of time starting and quiting private horde matches.

@ - ink, yeah makes sense. i never had a problem w/banning while playing reach, though any online experience always attracts less favorable groupings at times and more often than not. I don't play reach much, and barely do the dailies at this point unless it takes the least amount of effort...I am glad however I got a digital copy, esp after selling my hard copy many months ago. I think going into the online gears experience and progression, just knowing what might trigger a ban hammer or the like is good to know.

as for a achievement deletion patch, yeah...i just want my effort towards the impossibly difficult DDR game to vanish forever.

Understandable man. Currently the only way you can get banned from Gears MP is good ol' fashioned non-disputable cheating e.g. mods, lag switching, idle boosting in public games. The most important thing to note is that Epic also forwards your tag to the XBL Enforcement Team which naturally graduates your minor ban to something a tad bit more permanent on a wider scale.

Sometimes I just wish companies would realize that these types of goals/achievements ruin gameplay so they wouldn't include them...

I love how they only place Boomshot on the maps where its presence is easily trounced by long distance cross fire camping. Awesome. Mercy's weapon selection was fine as is. All they had to do was remove the damn Church gate to deter camping, but nooooooooo... that shit would actually make too much sense. So let's give scrubs and power weapon campers unlimited frags on even rounds and get rid of One Shot to make it even easier! Man Up victories are great! ...Idiots. I notice they still haven't put Mortar back on Overpass or replaced it with Longshot + permanent frag combo so the map remains unbalanced.

Who the f*ck are they listening to when they make these decisions? Themselves? Do they even have the time to actually play with the public? Jesus... If their forum community had anything to do with this I pray they ignore them in the future. These changes reek of rifle and camper pandering.

Holy shit at those launch xp rates though... wow. Damn glad I played at during launch. I hope they realize boosting Execution and Warzone is a fool's errand. It won't keep them off life support. Restoring the rounds or giving us a classic playlist is the best chance they have of maintaining interest.

How about they fix the fucking spawn points... I love having an entire opposing team spawn right behind me if I happen to be near one of the points.

The one shot on mercy could kill anyone hiding behind the cover near the center back of the church, maybe thats why they took it out. It was too easy to kill people under cover, unless they constantly move back and forth.

Which was exactly the point - it was one of the few effective ways of pressuring church campers without putting yourself at risk. In order for those jackasses to continue dicking around without consequence they had to hug a far wall on either side of church to stay alive. Mortar is only effective when you walk/wall bounce down from its spawn and for that back up is necessary. Assuming the campers weren't blind or stupid enough NOT to shoot you through the gate to begin with.

It's crystal clear Epic is going full retard mode for this game. They need to stop trying to fix what isn't broken and start acknowledging what is before they repeat the same mistakes they made with GoW 2. They are starting to giving me a reason to think about buying MW3 and neither of us want that.

you have a point, i do like how they changed the scorcher into an ink on drydock. I always go for the ink if i play on maps where they are near spawn. So i hated spawning on the one side with no ink on drydock.
