Before you start calling people who earned those achievements hackers and morons, maybe you should properly test your game, ass-hat.

|Really? It's their bad coding that caused every multiplayer match to give out a ribbon for people when the game first came out. It's not hacking. It's playing the game they released with problems. |

|I love collecting achievements in my games but I must say that Epic goes really far in making them impossible to get all of. I'm not saying that they should be able to obtained in a day but two years of dedication is ridiculous. They need to know that people DO play other games and that stupid stuff like the socialite achievement are crazy. Not to mention they stopped supporting it themselves and gave it to everyone for free. I don't let impossible achievements interfere with my purchases, but from a company perspective I'm surprised they still do this as it might deter some from buying the game. |

What? THe first time I EVER played GOW3 was about two weeks ago. I logged onto the online and instantly got this achievement, as well as the achievements for being level 5 and level 10.
I was level 12, and as I said, I had NEVER played this before.

By the way, I heard most hackers modded their stats after a glitch which has been occurring since GoW2 reset all of their progress in the game. You'd be playing normally, then poof, all of your unlocks are gone & your rank is back to 1.

|I doubt it was just me, I by no means hacked but I'm pretty sure there was an unpatched "BUG" that certain matches you played the achievement count for the Socialite achievement incremented. So I got this without actually playing so many events. I'm sure MANY people got it this way too. It's not so much that 'hackers' are lazy. It's that the developers are lazy and have sloppy prevention techniques. Hackers only expose until they want, it's not a matter of laziness. |

GTA IV for example. I "achieved" Wanted in Hangmans noose gringing when my mate and I bumped into a hacker who ended up forcing millions and millions of dollars onto out player score and then insta-ending the game.

|Lol not only was there a glitch that alowed people who played the game before release date to get progresion towards it for every multplayer match that they played. But also the third weekend up to the sixth weekend events had a glitch with them that alowed you to play private matches after playing one match of the events and each private match would also count. |
Plus there was only 35 different events in the first place. One was for playing on day one release and one was for playing in the first week. There fore there was only 33 different events. Which you couldnt redo for progresion towards the achievement.
The achievement was actualy obtainable after 8 months legitemetly, not two years lol.
Learn about your own game before posting wrong facts. Most of those who played the game were dummy accounts for boosting the kills. I myself had three other accouts for boosting kills. That meand that 1/4 of my accounts was actualy for playing the game. So these stats are bull. Plus how can you call 48% completion of the story campeign a success. It just means that you didnt do a good job making the game.

52 weeks in one year. Minimum of 1 event every week (sometimes more for special events like Christmas). At most it would have taken anyone 30 weeks playing one event a week to get the achievement, and probably less if you payed attention to news and heard about the extra events on certain special occasions.
And yes, I said that correct, it was 30 events, not 25. Rod Fergusson both doesn't know what his own game's achievement requirements are and doesn't know how calendars work. Someone here is really fucking lazy, and not at all smart, and he's standing there in his glass house throwing stones.

secondly, it did NOT track events that well at all, and we never got told why.
finally, its NOT our fault that certain events continued to tally the count for the War Supporter medal, more than once per event now is it?

|GDC 2013 "Game developers are really fucking lazy," says everyone. |
These days game developers don't test their product nearly enough. They rush the game to store shelves glitchy and broken, only to release a patch that only addresses some of the problems while it creates a whole new batch of problems, errors, and glitches. Countless gamers have had game save data or game progress lost. But the developers don't seem to mind, they already got people to buy their product so there's no sense in supporting it, right?
Speaking of lazy game developers, what happened to creativity in achievements? Rarely does a game get released without these three types of achievements: Reach Level x, Kill x enemies with y weapon, and collect x number of item y. Those are basically half of the amount of achievements and usually near 50% of the gamerscore of any game. We've been there, done that already. Give us something new.

|Speaking at the ‘Designing Compelling Achievements Microtalks’ session at GDC, former Gears of War Executive Producer and Irrational Games Executive Producer, Rod Fergusson, lifted the lid on some of the darker tactics that publishers and developers can use, reminiscing about his time on Gears of War 3. |
“We even do sort of this, I would somewhat call it a mercenary use of achievements and I’m not entirely proud of this, but my dark side of the force is kind of proud of it,” confessed Fergusson.
“So in DLC in Gears of War 3, when you bought the first horde pack you would unlock the skin for the Onyx guard,” he continued, referring to the “Kill Locust (Like a Boss)” achievement worth 100 points from the Horde Command DLC.
“We put in an achievement which was to beat a boss wave in horde as 5 Onyx guards. That meant the only way you can do that is not only you buy the DLC, but you had to get 4 friends to buy the DLC so that you can come together to get this achievement… so I was actively trying to promote people to buy the DLC, but it was one of those things that actually turned out to be more a marketing tool and find out people who really want this achievement.”

Why is this clown involved in a "Designing Compelling Achievements" discussion in the first place? The Gears of War achievements were horrible and he admitted yesterday they were designed around getting people's money. I'm not a modder or a hacker but I might become one when it comes time to buy any future games this piece of shit is attached to.

|People who exploit a fault are just as bad as modders tbh. Least with the latter they have to do something. |
Also to the people who said they got it before the game came out, he specifically said "after the game was released".
If you are going to say such things as "Fuck You Rob" etc, then maybe you should give back all the achievements you got by exploiting a game and don't say "It was their fault" as you knew about the exploit and still did it so you are at fault not him. Thats like blaming Ronald Mcdonald for getting fat because you exploited a cashiers stupidity into giving you free food.
Also i fail to see how companies can win at making an achievement list, because when its to long you complain that its a grind but when its to easy you complain and when its based on skill you complain on how you need luck. Maybe they should just have story based ones or for simply putting the game into the xbox, would that better please you?

|@73 No, just...no. There's a world of difference between using exploits IN the game compared to modding something as an ADDITION to it. The latter one also involves tampering with the game data severely, and can give you all sorts of advantages(and disadvantages, too). The exploit is just limited to one favorable method, modding can give MANY methods to choose from. See what I'm getting at here? How are people that use simple exploits just as bad as those who mod(especially those giving themselves advantages online)? |
If you don't want to use exploits in your games...fine, that's your choice. However, saying that it's equally as bad as those who are a big part of destroying the online modes of many games is just a tad far, don't you think?

|@73 how about you do some research before typing garbage, the idiot is claiming people hacked the game to get the achievement, which is not the case. in my case, the achievement may have unlocked AFTER the 2 days he is on about, about 3 months after release, but it still glitched not matter what, and he refers to that as hacking! |
in my case EVERY versus match counted as a "new" event, after x-amount of matches it unlocked. what you are saying is im as bad as a hacker/modder for simply playing my game, i paid for with my hard-earned money.
the way it comes across it like this: "oh, there's a bug that will unlock an achievement if you play legitimaly, so dont play it"
i say fuck off, companies NEED to start taking responsibility for THEIR mistakes, the internet age has made most of them lazy, if there is a problem and enough whiners complain, they might release a patch to fix it.

And what makes it so much worse is that EPIC are one of the few devs that actually send internal data and "proof" to MS to get people banned. So Rod I hope in your future roles that you actually get your facts right before accusing people of hacking when they either accidentally or deliberately took advantage of a glitch caused by dlc. (Not that I support taking advantage of the glitch but its not the same as hacking). |

|I never understood "hacking" personally. If you purchase a game for $60, or even get it for free, the idea is because you want to enjoy the experience it gives to you. Now by "hacking" that experience to get achievements quicker, or get certain in game exploits such as easier kills, more loot, whatever... doesn't that take the fun out of it? I think what is confusing me even more about "hacking" is what #54 says |
"Condition the world to sit inside their houses and devote their lives to mindless garbage no one gives a shit about and subdue us... hackers are smart and realize what a waste of time this shit is."
If it was really that much of a waste of time to play a game the correct way, you are indicating it is more intelligent to "hack" it, but I can't help but ask, wouldn't it just be more intelligent to avoid the game, and "hacking" it all together? You could save even more time by not playing at all.

The fact he's just outright said hackers and modders are lazy is a slap in the face to a huge community online, one of the most dedicated, and the use of the word "lazy" is a very poor choice indeed.
And consoles can be hacked and modded for things OTHER than achievements. People are a lot more capable than you might think.
As for the whole thing being about achievements, who the fuck cares if someone's done it. Achievements are to enhance player experience, it's not a fucking league or owt.

Hackers and Modders are lazy? Does he realise how much time and effort it takes to do this shit? 95% of the time new software has to be built just to extract or replace something, and 99.99% of the time it's harmless shit to enhance the player's experience, whether it's creating new skins or fixing issues that the developers themselves couldn't be arsed doing.
I nominate you for the "Clown of the Year" Awart!
enhance the player´s experience... I can remember how "excited" i was, when I become invaded from UNDYING FAGGOTS in Dark Souls!, oh, and they hacked all the Call of Duty Games to ruin the MP for serious gamers! (best exsample: World at War!)
So fu**ing funny when you play against immortal enemies!
Yeah, and all the XP Lobbies to get the prestiges faster! Just for a 0G-Achievement! All RETARDS!
Oh, and all the Modder and Hacker in Gears of War 3?! not the Social-Achievement, got it also very soon through the glitch, just played private... but Seriously 3.0 was one of the most hacked Achievements I think!
If I´m not interessted in working and earning a Cheevo then i do not deserve it...that´s it!
if you can show me the modder who saves "Aliens: Colonial Marines" on the XBOX then i change my mind... but all i have seen on hackers out there on XBOX Live where just spineless idiots who bring down my Online-Experience in other games or "lazy" dudes who want achievements they did not deserve!
My two cents!

I should have said it more specific that my post is for the console(s)
and there I just find hacker and modder they do there stuff for pissing ppl off or using there tools to beat a game on difficults that are to hard for them! Cod WoW on Vet, Dark Souls, etc!
hope you understand what i mean, and MAYBE i had missed the aspect for GOOD game Modifications ;)

|I consider myself lazy, but I've never reset a shit load of people's stats before.. Maybe it's the moron in me that prevents it from happening. |
What I find funny is that hackers have a way around 99% of anything within 1 week. The developers take 3 months to fix small issues. If the hackers had the employees, servers, coding lines..etc the developers have access to, they'd make flawless games every 3-4 months!!!!
3 months to patch issues - Lazy!
If he's saying modders and hackers do not play online style games and the stats prove it.. maybe it's just that some players don't like online play. Somethng about getting put on a team with whining 7 yr olds chased them off a while ago!
