Rock Band 3 Account Linking Live

Rock Band 3 Account Linking Live

I'm gonna get myself connected

Written by DavieMarshall on 05 November 10 at 00:55 | Credit to Stupid Dex

After a short wait, Rock Band 3 account linking is live. This means you'll be able to head over to the page on the official Rock Band 3 website and tie your game data to a Rockband.com account.

First and foremost this will unlock you the associated achievement, which will never enjoy the TA ratio of +278.6 again as it was at the time of writing:

Rock Band 3Well ConnectedThe Well Connected achievement in Rock Band 3 worth 9 pointsConnected your Rock Band 3 Band with rockband.com.


Secondly you'll then be able to track your Rock Band 3 stats via the web and monitor your progress and improvements.

There are some important extra bits of info that you might like to know however. Firstly, if you already have a linked Rock Band 2 account you do not need to sign up again at the Rock Band website. Boot up Rock Band 3 use the 'Sign In' feature and you'll be good to go (and hopefully you should get that achievement we mentioned earlier).

Harmonix have also said that because of changes in the way the site works, Rock Band 2 and original Rock Band sign ups will not be accepted any more:

Because the new features on this site rely exclusively on Rock Band 3 gameplay data, we're no longer supporting account linking for Rock Band 2 or Rock Band.

f you've only linked to Rock Band, you'll have to enter a Rock Band 3 Account Linking code to access the new site features.
The address to get online and get yourself connected and linked up is given below. Now hurry, six precious Gamerscore points await!

Making it a 6 Gamerscore achievement was the stupidest idea ever.

NICE I can finally get desktop pictures of the new and improved mcfu... maybe I shouldnt put the band name here.

Good timing, since I just got the 5* everything on expert goal done!

UPDATE - Logged in, after a press of the F5 button (I already had a RB account, FYI) and it says this:

"You’ve linked to Rock Band 3 but we haven't seen you play yet!"

But I just played a setlist and nothing... yet.

Damn sites probably going apeshit just because people EVERYWHERE are making accounts just for a little 6 point achievement. For shame...

As always I'm having problems with linking. I did it and I get this message on the website "You’ve linked to Rock Band 3 but we haven't seen you play yet!". That's proof that I've linked, I'm now going to go play a song and if it still doesn't work then I give up until people figure it out. I'm starting to think it's because I'm from the UK.

Finally I can get my achievement score back to ending in a 5 or 0, instead of the 4 or 9 because of this game.

Huh, I've been a member with a linked account on rockband.com since 2007, so I wonder how I unlock the achievement. Rockband.com says that it's automatically linked to my RB3 so I don't get a place to input a code, and when I boot up Rock Band 3 it doesn't unlock anything and still offers a code.

I'll just wait a few more days for things to calm down I guess. Hopefully it just has something to do with the servers being bombarded by people who have strange OCD issues with numbers that don't end with 5 or 0.

If you're getting the "you haven't played yet" message, unlink your account, then re-link it, then load up RB3 from the dashboard. Then, and only then, the achievement should be yours.

Looks like Harmonix rocked too hard and I got an error although I imputed everything correctly. I assume it's to do with the thousands of people trying to link their accounts.

Ever since the site was made over for the RB3 release, it's been pretty much broken. Attempts to log in are usually followed by a 500 Server Error, or it'll just freeze instead of letting the login process finish.

Figures, they finally get the link option working and when I load up my RB3 to get the code from the extras menu I get this message: "Couldn't get account-linking linking code. Please try again later."

I'm starting to hate Harmonix.

I got it to work without any issues; but it's probably because i've never had a RB account before for them to track and they can start fresh from RB3. Like, my band was tracked and I think my Gamertag was? But that was about it for RB2.
