Anyone know why the TA for this achievement has dropped to 0?

I know that it can't be obtained legit any more but it could be done in the past, which is when I and loads of other players picked it up.

What's going on?

I know whats going on, and i apologize.
Earlier i asked a member of the content team to flag this achievement as unobtainable, which i wasnt aware would make it lose its TA score, i have since asked them to change it to discontinued instead, so when the site updates the score shall return redface

It's a three-pronged attack. Subliminal, liminal and superliminal.

I thought that trueachievements wouldn't ban you if you removed the update and got it offline?

You cant do that im afraid, since the achievement was glitched when the game was shipped. They then released an update which fixed BUT when the DLC was released they added another update which then broke this, so no safe way to get it.....
And i dont understand what you mean by CarbonArgon said:I thought that trueachievements wouldn't ban you if you removed the update and got it offline?

See the solution:
Harrison101 Race Driver: GRID Gotta Drive 'Em All Harrison101's solution for the Gotta Drive 'Em All Achievement in Race Driver: GRIDYou’ve driven every car in the game!


You can download and install the update that isn't broken and earn it offline. I don't know what the investigations team is doing on this one, but I'm willing to bet it's considered legit, as there's over 100 people who have it offline.

Not that I have personal knowledge, but someone who was being investigated due to this method of unlocking the achievement told me that it was allowed, which is why the solution is still on site. That and the fact their score remains and they are still a member of this site makes me think it's ok if not explicitly approved.
65% completion by 1/1/11 or bust!

Even though it's an unusual method of obtaining the old patch you still have to do all the work to earn the achievement.

I've personally unlocked this achievement using the method outlined in that solution and it took at least an hour to test drive all the cars in my garage. I have no need to hide the fact I used this method. I didn't gamesave or anything like that, I still put in all the work to obtain the achievement (it just annoys me I don't get a time stamp for it).

Some people may consider that method as hacking or modding (I don't, I see it as a legitimate method) but it's definitely not an instant unlock for the achievement.

AraknidX said:Even though it's an unusual method of obtaining the old patch you still have to do all the work to earn the achievement.I did this method with the USB. But the thing was that I still had the DLC on my harddrive when I started up the with the old patch which corrupted my save so I had to play through the game a bit to get the very last to cars, with a few skills and choosing the right sponsors I managed to get the achievement in less then 6 hours and climb to the top of the Japanese Part of the game.

And aside from that I test drove all the cars before with new patch, before I read the problem with the update, you know just to be prepared, but turns out it was useless.
If the achievement is possible to get. I will get it sooner or later.
