Epic now gives you 29/30 events on all characters within the game. Play one event as defined below (play a public match of any game type) and you will get the achievement. I have tested this with a new account and was able to get the achievement.

**Archived Information**
In order to earn the Socialite Achievement you are required to play in 30 seperate & unique Gears of War 3 Events. The events so far have followed a pattern of every week and cycle the same 35 (or so) events. If you have already won the ribbon or played that event you will not get another ribbon or get credit for that event. Some of the events are shown on the Calendar & Events on the main menu, but Epic does not seem to update this page on a regular basis. During most events, you only need to play a quick, ranked or private match (Beast, Horde or Multiplayer) resulting in receiving a ribbon for that event. It is no longer required to play a specific playlist.

Important Notes:
The events cycle, don't know right now if it is random.
If you received the ribbon for an event, you cannot get it again.
Events 1-35 is the original list I created of cycling events (Main Events).

Listed are the past events, I will no longer keep this updated do to the lack of structure and order that Epic is providing.

How to RESET your Gears 3 Account

1) You will need a DUMMY or NEW account for this, and the DUMMY must NOT have the same problem you have with this medal/achievement. The Dummy/New account will need a Xbox Live account to play multiplayer so might have to shell out a few bucks, not sure if this works with GUEST account.
2) From your xbox homepage load up/Sign-In your Dummy/New account but leave your Main Account (the one you want to reset) turned OFF or Signed-Out.
3) Load up Gears 3 with the Dummy/New account and go into VERSUS matches.
4) Select one of the game modes does not matter which.
5) Now when you get to the MARCUS FENIX loading page as you try and enter the match you selected, hit you XBox Button in the middle of your controller and press X to SIGN-OUT your Dummy/New account from Xbox Live and the console.
6) As soon as it is signed out immediately press the Xbox Button again and this time scroll down and select SIGN-IN (Profiles) which will open your profiles you have on this console and now select your MAIN account or the one you want to RESET and SIGN IN.
7) What should happen now is when your Main Account opens (it will not open in the match you picked, it will open at the MAIN MENU for Gears 3) if you look at it - it will be whatever level your Dummy/New account was for this game and if you look at the stats, the stats for your Main account will instead by that of your Dummy/New account. If this did not happen then the MARCUS FENIX loading screen beat you to the end BEFORE you could get your Main account loaded so you will have to try again and be FASTER with signing OFF the Dummy/New account and signing IN your Main account. Took me 2 tries.
8) OK now you have to LOCK IN the new data for your Main Account now that has been cloned from your Dummy/New account. To do this Hit the START button which is this one to the RIGHT of the Xbox Button and this will bring up a list, scroll down to MULTIPLAYER and select it by pressing A. What you have to do now is for each of the 5 weapons you need to change the SKIN to something new does not matter what you pick as long as it is NEW and MUST be done for all 5 WEAPONS. Once done back out of the page and back to the MAIN MENU for Gears 3. This will UPDATE the database with your new info and overwrite your previous data. Now log out/turn off Gears 3 by returning to the console Homepage.
9) Now with your Main account open Gears 3. what you should see in the loading screen is several weapons skins, some character skins, and most importantly the 29 events load into your profile while the game is loading up. The Main Accounts stats should still be a clone of your Dummy/New account once you get into the game.
10) Now just select any VERSUS game to play (TDM and WAR ZONE are the fastest I find) and play a match. At the end of this match you should now get your ONYX MEDAL and ACHIEVEMENT. smile

Now would be interesting to see if you CLONED someones account who already had SERIOUSLY 3.0 if you would get the achievement, not sure if this would work, and I have no friends with this achievement anyway. I am not sure if it would unlock for you if you did this, maybe someone could try and find out if they have such NICE friends to allow them to try this on their account.
