WHAT I CANT UNDERSTAND IS IF PEOPLE HAVE 14K
HOW THEY COULD HAVE LOST 4 K BY QUITTING?
Also, Has anybody got any advice i am on 9750 killls
What Percentage is there of me not getting the achievement at 10k?

The clan I am a part of helps people get seriously. there is no danger to letting someone recover your gamertag if you give them a backup gamertag. once they give it to your backup , you can recover it on your xbox and glitch it to your real gamertag.

thank you epic games, and all your management. maybe next time on gears 2 you will get the achievements right and have an explanation to why you will or will not get the kill count correct. ridiculous how i've been watchin these forums and i'm posting on the 26th page and still no response to this achievement. IM ALMOST AT 11,500 kills and no achieve. RIDICULOUS IS ALL I GOTTA SAY

My question is if I gave someone my gamertag they could change my passport.net account password, right? But even if they did, I could simply have the password reset and sent to my email?

I love Gears, but this seriously business is getting on my nerves. It would be fine if only a couple of people were getting it, but its happened to everyone after the update. I personally have around 10,900 kills. Almost 1,000 more than required for this freakin achievement. I've tried everything from recovering my gamertag to deleting and re-downloading the patch. Come one guys, you aren't even telling us what's wrong with this glitch. Better yet you aren't even really acknowledging that anybody is having this problem. I am so close to giving this game up and going for another one. Nothing is really happening for this game anymore, unless you add something or fix this patch crap. Don't get me wrong now, gears is a fantastic game and has great potential for the next installment, but someone needs to do something about this...quick!!!:confused:

Well I for one am starting to get really fed up with this so-called Achievement. I have 12,662 kills and NOTHING. It's getting beyond the joke now, I wouldn't mind if it gave me it about 500 kills more than 10,000 but 2,662 c'mon!

It also wouldn't be so bad if we actually knew why, I mean loads of people spread rumours but none is confirmed. It wouldn't bother me 'as much' if I knew why.

But considering it has been around for ages. It looks very unlikely that we will ever find out why, I even have 10,229 just in Warzone and nothing.

I think I'll just give up soon.

You are obviously missing the point. The issue is: why the hell has there been no official response to the problem? I want to play other games, and leaving Gears incomplete means I wasted probably 3 months trying to get Seriously... when I could have been playing another game. I invested the time to get the achievement but I am not getting the reward, which I should be. Gears was a fun game and I enjoyed it but now it's just an annoyance. The Christmas season is coming up which means all the new games are coming out and I want to enjoy those games but I cannot because Gears is pissing me off. I can't stand leaving this game that I spent so much time on incomplete.

Everyone calm down, seriously can be unblocked! I was one of those who had lost their hope, but yesterday playing Escalation and after 12085 kills it was unblocked. Like everyone says: keep trying that your time will come. By the way, it would be nice if you check the monthly leader boards its bugged, and it might be the problem. When I last checked I had only 11K kills.

When I last checked I had 11K kills. I wish good luck the all of you that are still trying to get it.

Beating the game in hardcore like 7 times now has given me the achievements but not ever unlocked insane mode. I've tried everything. Beating it several times hosting or joining hardcore games and beating it. It just doesn't seem to want to let me into insane.

from all the players i played with on gears, those in which who didnt have the seriously achievement and were over. i talked to atleast 200 different people and the range i got from people getting the achievement were about 10,500 to 12,500.. some stragglers with the 14,000 and no achievement but if any of you have been waitin for the achievement. keep playin and playin its exactly what i did, because epic is in no hurry to fix that.

I agree with your range. Average is around 11.5k from what I've read and heard. I'll keep playing, but I'll also continue to seek answers.

I'm playing on the pc. Actually a lot of the posts I saw were pc and nothing about the 360. It seems with the pc when you shutdown which is what mostly everyone wrote, stuff get's "lost." As for the 360 I played it last year and beat it and never had problems and never went back to the game much since I'm sincerely not a console gamer. I just got a 360 for through work so figured why not get gears. I like it better on the pc, because I'm a pc gamer for life.

Here's info on why your kills may not always count (from this thread (http://forums.epicgames.com/showthread.php?p=25074546#post25074546)):


It's based upon a hidden number that each player has. This number is based off of the number of times you've left a match early, fully completed, etc. It then takes the scores posted by each player and decides who with the highest ratings agree. So if you leave early, you will post incorrect scores compared to those that finish the match. Therefore, the ones that complete are believed over yours. However, if someone who has a really high rating leaves while everyone else has a lower aggregate rating, the score will not post because the "believable" person trumps the non-trustworthy ones. This is built into Live and is not controlled by us...

Basically, it tracks people that cheat via turning off/disconnecting and marks them as untrustworthy, so their votes don't count. For the scores to count, there has to be a majority of trusted players reporting identical scores. So if nothing but untrustworthy people report and the highest trusted player drops, the untrusted ones are out voted.

And I believe the trust rating is determined across all games, so you should never drop from any ranked match if you can help it.

14,557 kills and it still hasn't unlocked, about to give up on this so-called game...

And before people say 'it's because you quit' I've quit about 50 games MAX in the year I've played it so I guess 4,557 kills is 50 games, right? yeah sure.

I'm fed up with all these rumors, fact is, it hasn't unlocked when it is surposed to, end of story.

10,750 kills and no Seriously. Slayer171 if you dont trust them make a silver acct without points. Give that person the info let them do the trick and recover it back. then you do the trick. I have friends who have offered but I'm waiting. Another advantage to this method is your real file cant get corrupted while being recovered. You can usually find 48 hr trials in used games at gamestop also.

I agree none of the explainations don't make any sense. Most claim to add to the "real" total but not the leaderboard. So how could you not have it when the leaderboard is lower estimate than the true number?
The last explaniation is somewhat better but can it be off by 5,000 when other people seem to get it early? Epic/Microsoft certainly doesnt seem to care. The threaten to punish those who cheat and dont punish those that have so far.

I know this is redundent but it blows all ideas and reasons out of the water. Its hard to believe that no one from epic is responding from this ongoing problem. this thread alone is over 30 pages long. We have shown epic our faith in them, now its time to return the favor. Gears 2 is not far away, but the more responses we get from gears 1, the more sales they will get from gears 2.

Are you retarded? either you glitch for the achievement or give up. Gears 2 is coming out this november why do you think epic even gives a damn? They are working to make sure these problems dont exist in the sequal they already made it clear they dont care when they stopped responding to all your damn complaints over a year ago. move on to call of duty or wait for gears 2. you already got the 10000k kills might as well do the glitch. what you got to prove anyway? nobody cares about how you got it and naver will.

This may or may not have been dealt with before, But I cannot find it in the forums.

First off, just wanna say THANKS for giving us this awsome game.


The problem i have, when trying to load gears of war, is disc read errors with a clean and scratch free disc. Not only does it do this when halfway through ranked matches, also when first loading into the xbox, The 360 shows a default screen in multi-languages "to play this disc, place in an xbox 360" I have to remove the disc and replace several times before getting the thing to work.


Things i have tried:
cleaning the lens
Cleaning the disc
Clearing the cache on the xbox.


Any solutions to this prob appreciated

Thanks in advance

There is no way to fix this bug, among other ones. The only 'solutions' are to kill until it eventually unlocks or glitch the weapons achievements.

I wrote to Mark Rein of Epic Games and he replied

Here is what our Gears of War producer, Rod Fergusson, replied when someone asked about not getting the "Seriously" achievement which probably applies similarly to your question...

I’m assuming that you’re taking your kill count from the Leaderboards. Unfortunately the number on the Leaderboard doesn’t necessarily reflect your progress towards the "Seriously..." achievement, although it’s usually very close. Due to the way Ranked Matches work, if a match is aborted (either by you or the host quitting before it’s complete), if enough rounds have been played then those will get counted towards the Leaderboards but because the match was not fully completed, those kills will not count towards the "Seriously..." achievement. Over time this usually means that there is a small difference between the number on the Leaderboards and your achievement count.

Nothing it broken, you just need to keep playing for a little while longer in matches that go all the way to the end and you will ultimately get the achievement.

Well if thats true it certainly explains why every body has been having problems getting Seriously...


I know that I have been in games where the host has quit, or we have got down to about 4 players, and I know for sure that afterwards my score on the leaderboards has gone up, though seemingly those kills dont count towards the achivement.

One thing I was wondering about. I moved last fall and didn't go online for a while. In that time my Gears save file somehow reset itself. I lost all of my single player progress. No biggie, actually it was fun to run around and find all of the cog tags again.

Lately though I've been thinking. If my achievement progress is saved to my system then maybe it got deleted also.

When Gears first came out there was a day that XBOX Live was down. On that day we realised that without Live we couldn't play single player either since our profile could not load properly. Epic fixed that with an update but maybe their fix created a new bug.

Maybe the fix that allows us to play single player offline affects our profile, and thus our seriously progress, once we log back online.

You DO know it takes a while for the leaderboards to refresh right? So then your stats are probably updated after you've played another match.

this game has come to be unfair and very hard to enjoy. There is no new maps,no new anything, i mean i know your working on gOw 2 but at least give gamers something to keep them occupied until the sequels release. I just dont understand this game anymore.I will be in a shotgun battle and get downed when full health by one shot.Shots seem to lag alot.lancer is too powerfull.crabwalkers.chainsaw sometimes glitches when u melee them it doesnt seem to lower their chainsaw.There is no skill involved. Acitve Reloads with the sniper are way too powerfull and dominant.i miss the old gears.:(Everybody glitches out of maps,and get stuck on walls all the time.This is my favorite game.I mean almost 2 years and ive still been playin this.Please fix this game.I am not the only one who feels this way everybody i play with cant finish a game because they just get frustrated and quit.I end up punching my door because of getting active down ALL THE TIME!!! You guys should take some of pc's maps and add them to 360.it wouldnt take long at all.also fix bugs and update it.i and all other players would highly appreciate this request.

I have 30,122 kills on warzone alltime, I have NEVER quit out of a match, NEVER glitched, and ALWAYS finished every match all the way to the end. SO according to the explanations I should have the achievement right?

If people are not going to be rewarded with the achievement when the description reads, '10,000 ranked kills' then do not describe the ****ing achievement this way. Why not call it exactly what it is, "keep playing this laggy, out-dated use of relying on other people's hosting multiplayer games to finally be cheated out of an achievement when you blatantly deserve it".

I will look forward to people posting replies saying "oh just keep playing and it will unlock" and urge YOU to play a broken multiplayer for another straight year.

I know it does not make sense if you don't quit out of matches you should be a trusted player and your stats should count. I would be ok with going off the leaderboards for the achievement even if it is messed up at least you can see where you are at it can't be that hard to write code that takes a+b+c=Total. I can do that in a excel spreadsheet. Also if they say it is XBOX Live why is this the only game I have had problems getting the achievements to unlock when I have the requirements. No other game I have does this.

Look, there is a lot of gripes about the Seriously Achievement, lots of us have been working the achievement for a long time. Gears 2 is now coming.
Epic should scan the DB and anyone with over 10K Ranked Kills should have it auto unlocked regardless of quits, not enough players, etc.

I have 13K myself, and frankly I am sick of trying.

Come on Epic, hook us up. if theleaderboard states over 10K then unlock it for us devout loyal followers.

On my original profile I unlocked Seriously like in April 2007, with 9,900 odd kills.

Now I am playing on my younger brothers console, and have taken his kills from 7,200 up to 11,200 over the last 2 weeks. Yes, I've done nothing but play gears. For these 4,000 kills, I have been the host, and never quit the match, not even when its down to 1 on 1. So there is a possibility when my bro was earning those first 7,200 kills that he may have quit. Either way, I am up to 11,200 with no achievement.

Can someone verify when the update was made that supposedly reset everything? Mnay thanks.

Also Epic, you should give away exclusive gamerpics for GOW2 for those who have GOW1 and unlocked seriously.

This should stimulate others to keep playing GOW1 in anticipation of GOW2.

Not really, I am glad Annex doesnt count. In a annex match you keep respawning and killing and can easily get 100+ kills per match. Warzone, Executiom etc take much longer to earn. Plus, it took us longer to get kills as well, so I'd be pissed if annex counted, cause its much quicker for newcomers to earn serioulsy, all they'd do is plan annex!

Either way, keep playing, it will unlock soon.

the

was stuck on my screen the WHOLE game and I was stuck in spawn, i guess the guy left at the exact time that the victory screen came up.. i had to end the match :( crazy.

Also has anyone else ever had it glitch 5v3? I had that happen in a player canals once, and we raped :P

I'm suprise this hasn't been written on the main post but if you enable QoS in your router to allow Xbox traffic priority 1 versus computer traffic of priority 255, you will to make your response time for your Xbox a lot snappier. Did this in my house for all devices. Works great!

Look I loved gears in it's early day's.But something has gone very wrong.Why r the cog so dang strong now,shot gun's rip u in half like your tearing paper.When you no u shot the other guy first.I hope to god that you epic will fix your game or I will not get gear's 2.Why not just take it back to the way it was before you could not see who's hosting in a ranked match.Leave some of the patches but just make it a fun game agin.I should not get so mad that i want to destroy everything in my room after playing 1 game.I like to play as locust but the cog can wipe you out before you can turn around now.Why?How can someone beat you in a flat run nothing in your way and there their first atleast 5seconds before you are?All this stupid running shoot gun that the cog can do but locust cannot,why?Every game i have played lately the cog can do all these thing where the locust cannot.Why?Please fix the game I loved so much that I went out and bought the collectors edition.Or at least let me try gears 2 out before I buy it or something.Because I am really thing of not buying it at all.

OMFG dude, everything you've said is not true, the teams are balenced, tbh the reason for your constant 'WHY?!!' is that you obviously suck.

Also how many kills did your achievement unlock at??

well i really dont think that what Rod Fergusson said about seriously is correct. Yes the leaderboards may be off some. but for me 1,089 kills and i never quit games?? I doubt i'm that far off, now taken for granted that yes a host has quit some times and i have lagged out of a few games but nothing to make me well over 1,000 kills above seriously and still don't have it..?? :mad::confused:

Chrispher
08-31-2008, 02:08 PM
Rod Fergusson seems to have said that some kills that count towards the leaderboards don't count towards seriously, so the leaderboards will always show a figure higher than what's actually counted.

How is that not bugged? Why aren't all the leaderboard kills counted?
The achievement description is:
Seriously ... :Kill 10,000 people in versus ranked match total
It mentions nothing about having finished games properly (and incidentally nothing about not working on Annex). The people who have got over 10,000 kills according to the leaderboards have still killed 10,000 people in versus ranked match in total, and so they deserve the achievement.
So clearly, the way Seriously's counted is bugged. Surely then they should fix it, or at least provide some sort of compensation (like a counter that's accurate). For people to have to get more kills than they should, with no counter, is appallingly badly done - especially for such a large number of kills.

Oh well, that's my rant. As one of the 11,000-kills-yet-no-achievement people I am a tad annoyed. After every game I just think loudly, "how many more do I neeeed?" I shouldn't have that information kept from me.

So ye people at Epic like Rod should stop hiding behind the idea that the leaderboards kills are inaccurate, and just bloody fix Seriously already. And if not give us a counter :(.
It saddens me that there are so many seemingly easy to fix bugs on Gears of War, that would save a lot of players a lot of sanity if they were fixed. Please just fix it.

Hi,

On Gears of War PC, the acheivement "Not So Seriously" Requires 10000 player match kills.
I only play execution, and I maually write down all my kills.

So I am up to 10,250 and still no achievement.

What angers me is around 3,000 kills, I lost my saved campaign data from the usual GOW PC bug for saved games. I posted many questions asking if this constitutes a loss of my saved data for MP? No one seems to know.

What I want to know is what are the rules for a player match in terms of what counts etc?

Thanks,

I have been screwed by Epic on GOW for 360, took 12,322 kills and now on PC, it aint unlocking again.

Why oh why do I keep coming back to gears?

Yeah the game is great, but it is still annoying that the achievement doesn't unlock at 10000 kills as it should. I now have over 13500 kills and still no luck... I am not looking forward to "seriously 2.0" (100,000 kills) if the system still works in the same way. Imagine having to get an extra 30,000 kills or more for the achievement....agghh

Can Rod Fergusson also explain why it took someone 26,000 kills to unlock his Seriously?

The Seriously achievement is a big load of .... Like Chrispher already said, it SHOULD unlock at 10,000 kills because it says so in the achievement-description.
Epic Games, just make sure that none of the achievements in Gears 2 will be bugged because Seriously 1.0 is just epic fail.

I'm at 10,400 at the moment and no achievement. What a surprise, huh? And ofcourse I will keep playing this game because I love it but it's still an enormous anti-climax to not get your long-awaited achievement when you should.

By the way, I always check the leaderboards after I played a couple of matches and I'm sure my killcount is pretty accurate right now.

Does loosing your saved campaign data in GOW PC also erase your progress towards seriously and not so seriously?

Just a Yes or a No.

I am sick of the PC crashing every week or so, and when I come back, my game saves are gone. I am worried cause I haven't played campaign in 3 months and I have like 10,800 kills now and no acheivement. I am worried my data is lost.

Also, where is the saved data stored? can I send it to you? Let me know where I am at.

No one will help you. You can either keep killing people, or glitch the achievement. You're wasting your time trying to contact people.

You could be 50 kills away, or 10,000 kills away (I didn't get mine until I got 24,000 kills). So kill, or glitch...Those are pretty much your options.

Just got my Seriously achievement on Tyro Station.

The game was finished with 4 people in total (3 on COG, 1 on Locust) so it is true that all your kills still count even when almost everyone leaves a game. Made 7 kills before they left the match so just make sure you stay in a game even when more than 2 people quit.

It's all about the kills you make before there are less than 6 people in the game.

Shotguns are weak as hell, chainsaw can get you from a mile away, you are able to shoot through the wall on River where the sniper spawns, people can teleport run (may be a lag issue), maps are very poorly designed, bullets take way tolong to reach the target, you can no longer shoot from the hip with the shotgun, if you do the bullets hit the floor!!!! WTF! I haven't really had a problem with the matchmaking. I kind of like it because it takes away host advantage, I don't like that smoke grenades can knock you down, I hate the way the snipers are designed in this one. The scope feels wably, and did I mention the shotguns? Wow, they are a joke!

First and foremost I want to say I joined this forum to complain about multiplayer just like a lot of other people. I love the campaign, and I love horde. :D Multiplayer is another story...Balancing out the weapons is obviously something Epic will update, and honestly I can deal with changes to the shotgun or changes to the sniper, those are things I can adapt to. But why make me vote on WHAT I WANT TO PLAY, and what MAP I WANT?! I think this is so ridiculous. I, amongst many others, hate those type of systems that are implemented in the Halo's and COD's. That's why I loved gears so much! Hopefully you do something about this epic to make matchmaking better. P.S. Why the HELL do I have to wait 25 seconds after a match? :mad:

Any plans to return the shotgun to its former glory? It worthless now. The game would have been fine had they done everything they did do other than mess around with the shotgun. Make it like it was. I like the way it use to sound too. Now its a watered down bass drum basically. I dont under stand people who say they weakened it because Gears 1 was a shotty fest. This is a whole new ball game. The Lancer and the Hammerburst in the right hand can hold most opponents at bay and shift the advantage to your team. As with the first Gears its still about knowing what weapon to use for any paticular situation. But when all the flanking is done, the lancering, ect....sometime it just come down to close quarters confrontations...Why should the guy mashing the hell out of B(with his Lancer ready) have an advantage over the guy blasting him w/ the shotgun. I've seen this countless times on the 1st Gears. Newbz get the game. They know nothing about it other than B is the saw. They end up in a multiplayer room thinking they might be pretty good.Wrong. They quickly realized maybe charging someone from 10-15 feet away w/ they're chainsaw revin perhaps wasn't the best idea. But that was all they knew so they keep doin it. And they keep diein.
Things are different now on Gear2. The same newb tactic I just decribed has a much higher success rate.Why. Because the shotty has been watered down. The rate of fire slowed down. Not to mention the general camera sentitivity is greatly dimenished. One can nolonger whip the shotty around 180 degres nearly as quickly as before. Even with everything on high. Matter of fact Gear2 is slower over all. There's alot of things I love about the new Gears but that shotty must be fixed. Hopefully future updates will address these concerns, which are by and large the concerns of Gears vets. The newbies don't care, cause they don't know any better. And after they get a month or two of severe ass wuppins by us vets...they'll promtly return to Halo or Call of Duty or where ever the hell they came from. So do yourself a favor Epic and take what the vets say under advisement not the newbs. We are the ones who know whats best for the series. Trust us...

Iím tired of hearing about the shotgun strength. I think its perfect, now it actually takes skill to take someone out with the shotty, before some noob luckily blind firing and killing you. I havenít had many problems with matchmaking; I like it much better than gow1 when a skilled host was unstoppable. Also loved how active snipe was nerfed.

The main things I think should be addressed are:

Chainsaw obviously needs fixing with not being stunned while shot at.

Frag sticks on walls needs a longer get away time. Right now when you hear the beep its too late.

My list of wants/fixes:

1) This is the most important - Matchmaking speed and overall wait times to get into a Public match that only lasts 5 rounds. It's boring to say the least.
2) Slightly faster shotgun speed - The strength is fine
3) Stopping power on the chainsaw needs to be fixed

I also agree with alstargamer123, I have a lot of friends in the UK who I played Gears 1 with fine and now that's out of the question with the lag issues with overseas players on Gears 2.

Hmm, decent grammar, the decent for of how to porduce your words. Except there is closed minded opinion lacking evidence.

I say matchmaking is very good. At times has its flaws. Like when there is no other team to face, and one earns the "around the world" acheivement for holding a controler. Other than that, I say matchmaking is insane.

i know its been said alot but i think there might b a bug with the 3 shot hits for the chainsaw - im a pretty good shot and i have often shot at players just holding the b button running down a hallway and no matter how many rounds i put in them they still do not lower the chainsaw.

this happens on multiple occasions and ive gotten to the point where when it does happen i dont even roll away anymore. i just turn off my xbox and walk away because its so maddening.

it isn't my connection i know when its bad and when its good and when this happens its only good. i complain about a bad connection when thats the reason my bullets don't do anything ;)

any way to PROVE this or am i just boned? cause it has happened on multiple occasions (i use hammerburst if it matters, firing as fast as i can and just holding the trigger)

Couldn't agree more with the above. I dont understand the 'shottyfest' concept that people band around concerning gears one - a shotgun is meant to be powerful in close combat - thats the idea of it and what they are made for. You could use different tactics and weapons depending on your distance in gears 1 - not anymore. I thought epic wanted to stop the roll and shoot tactic using stopping power - thats fine but surely then no need to weaken the shotgun power. Its useless now and id much rather have the shotgun back to what it used to be rather than this ridiculous emphasis on chainsawing which is WAY more annoying and LESS SKILLFUL (simply holding B?!?!?) than being blown away by the shotgun. Gears 1 was my favourite game of all time, gears 2 MP has so far been nothing but disappointment for me.

New glitch of the day is that I have seen a bunch of people picking up the Boomshield with weapons other than their pistol.

I've seen them using a shield in conjunction with a Torque Bow, Shotgun, and Lancer.

For whatever reason, when performing this glitch, the shield becomes invisible, so you can only tell they are holding it by the way they move and shoot, but it is definately there, as you can hear shots pinging off it, and it protects them from damage.

When downed or killed, the shield is dropped as normal and becomes visible again.

I have no idea how you do it, but I know it is a repeatable glitch, because I saw the same people doing it repeatedly in each round of the match.

This has to be fixed!

To my surprise my original user ID (Durazell) was banned when I logged on to the forum.

The only explanation was this "You have been banned for the following reason:
Obvious

Date the ban will be lifted: Never"

I have read forum rules and abide by them. Without any more information that provided above it seems to be relating to this thread:

http://gearsforums.epicgames.com/showthread.php?t=638465

My perception is that this thread is in compliance with the forum guide lines, and is similar to threads where the original thread creator is not banned.

My thread is closed with the very subjective message "Closed due to poor behaviour". There are no personal attacks, cheating in the thread and it is on topic, so the "poor behaviour" is from my perception only from "joeGraf" who made little effort to provide any facts. As a paying customer, and one of the few who provide real name, gamertag and place of origin I find that this approach very arrogant when imposing a permanent ban. And the first I have ever received, I have never even had a warning on any site!!

This will only encourage the use of bounce email (like I have done for this one), fake information and even more "poor behaviour". If you truly want paying customers to supply "constructive criticism" like the forum rules say I think that moderators especially "joeGraf" needs more social and communication skills other than providing as reason for a ban as "Obvious". The current approach only incites more "poor behaviour".

I have written to forum admin and of course PM'ed "joeGraf". "joeGraf" has decided to exhibit very "poor behaviour" by not providing any kind of response. So this leaves me on other option than take this public. I want my user reinstated.

I'm suprise this hasn't been written on the main post but if you enable QoS in your router to allow Xbox traffic priority 1 versus computer traffic of priority 255, you will to make your response time for your Xbox a lot snappier. Did this in my house for all devices. Works great!

What's QoS? Do you need a certain router to be able to do this? I've gone through my router settings thoroughly and havent seen mention of any QoS

Bring back Gears1 minus the active-longshot one shots from across the map. A shot anywhere on the body from across the map takes no skill. Sniper rifles are meant for HEADSHOTS. If you can't get one DON'T F**KING PICK IT UP!

I wrote to Mark Rein of Epic Games and he replied

Here is what our Gears of War producer, Rod Fergusson, replied when someone asked about not getting the "Seriously" achievement which probably applies similarly to your question...

Iím assuming that youíre taking your kill count from the Leaderboards. Unfortunately the number on the Leaderboard doesnít necessarily reflect your progress towards the "Seriously..." achievement, although itís usually very close. Due to the way Ranked Matches work, if a match is aborted (either by you or the host quitting before itís complete), if enough rounds have been played then those will get counted towards the Leaderboards but because the match was not fully completed, those kills will not count towards the "Seriously..." achievement. Over time this usually means that there is a small difference between the number on the Leaderboards and your achievement count.

Nothing it broken, you just need to keep playing for a little while longer in matches that go all the way to the end and you will ultimately get the achievement.

Would this go for weapon achievements too? I have 178 curbstomps in execution but no achievement.

Everyone want is it, what? Your lack of proper English confuses me.

If you're implying everyone wants the active sniper, then you're an idiot.
You can't speak English, you require one of the absolute WORST excuses for a gameplay implementation, therefore you are a complete newbie. Anything you reply with has zero credibility. Enough said.

If this isn't what you were implying, then I will promptly delete/edit this post, and apologize. Otherwise, stuff it.

Alright so I dont have time to read through this entire thread and i have not seen these glitches in the orginal post so i will state them here:

boomshield weapon glitch- i'm tempted to just say how to do it right here to ruin the game for everyone and force epic to fix it.... but i'm reserving judgment for now.

pavilion boomshield wall glitch- just set the boomshield down at the back wall of pavilion and you can hop over the boomshield through the wall and into the spawn.

smoking yourself into the car bay in river- use the smoke grenade to throw yourself in the back, people do it in guardian and it means certain death because we know your there

smoking yourself to the top of the bridge in river, just throw a smoke under the bridge while standing their you'll glitch out and land on top of the bridge.

then theirs the random glitches you get where 1 or 2 players on your team cant shoot and have unlimited ammo but do no damage.

Question: what about when the whole enemy team quits and my team wins the match. So I don't quit neither does the host but all the enemy players quit. Do those kills count toward Seriously?

Well I have been playing like crazy this days so i can get seriously, I already have;
14870 kills on warzone
1500 kills on assasination and
1000 kills on execution
That means I have a total of 17370 kills on ranked matches and still nothing :mad: I plan to play until it pops but i definitively would like to know when Im going to get it cuz I think I deserve it long time ago (HELLO 7370 kills more and nothing)
Some people say that it only count in just one type of game... well I have 2 friends that got it before 10000 kills and adding kills in all types of games,
some people say it have something to do with the saves of your game, that I dont know but I erased all of my saved games of gears cuz Im not playing the campaing anymore, but still, kills are supposed to be recorded on the leaderbords right? anyways, Im another guy that have this really annoying problem
HOPE I GET IT SOON

My question is if I gave someone my gamertag they could change my passport.net account password, right? But even if they did, I could simply have the password reset and sent to my email?

Actually you can make a silver account (which comes with a free month gold) give that blank account to them then when they give it to you do it yourself on your main account.

Of course this is if you are at 10000 already lol

I posted this in another thread, not too sure if it belongs here but I'll repost it anyway:


Gears of Wars has crashed on me quite a number of times, about 5 times just in 2 days. It was enough to worry me.

I also encountered some other problems that are pissing me off. First off, I completed the game on hardcore difficulty alone. But for some reason, my achievements did not get unlocked for most of the acts. The only achievements I got were the ones with killing a Berserker, RAMM, etc., and I got CASUAL achievements for Act1 and Casual + Hardcore for Act4. NONE for the other achievements, even though I completed all acts on hardcore difficulty. I have no idea why...you can see my Gamecard here if you want proof: http://live.xbox.com/member/WarioSixFour

That's not the end of my problems...I also can't replay the game on Insane difficulty for whatever reason. It's greyed out on my difficulty screen, and I really want to play it on insane. I also cannot choose to replay certain acts when I try to load other chapters.

On addition to the achievements bug I have, I played insane difficulty via XBL co-op since it's the only way for me to play it and it didnt unlock any insane Act achievements either.

If someone has solutions for me to have insane difficulty playable without doing co-op, I'd like to hear it. I'm not too concern with my achievements but I have a feeling they're the reason why I cant choose insane

This happened to me once and I found out that the problem was I had started my insane run in co op. I could not select insane difficulty in the menu when I went back to play my campain solo. The only way I could proceed on was to start up a co op game on xbox live. I dunno if this is intentional or some sort of bug.

Normal? its definitively @#$%ed, Im at 1500 kills to get to 20000 mark and I really dont think that is going to unlocked. The saddes part is that I checked the leaderboard and almost everybody below me on the leaderbord have seriously but not me. My goal now is to get in the top 100 on the leaderboard its going to take a long time but atleast Im not going to be thinking everytime that a match ends that im going to get seriously so that way Im going to get the stress out of my head and just try to get better on the leaderboard. everybody on the top 100 leadeboard have seriously that is why thats my goal now.

Message to epic please read, i'm begging you get dedicated servers we know you don't want to but try and get the dedicated servers then the lag will disappear, not completely but look at left 4 dead played multiplayer 100 times over on dedicated servers never lagged, and cod4 and cod5 almost never lag either so please, please, and i mean please get deicated servers thats the reason why people play gears 1 instead of 2 is because the lag is so much worse, i mean i don't lag too much but when i do it's absolutely horrible, so please for the good of the gears franchise get dedicated servers or then it will be harder to keep people on when you add dlc and no one buys it
