How to unlock the Vanquisher achievement

  • 19 0 15
    Update: update...

    An update came out for the game today, (I think) December 6th, this may fix the problems people are having unlocking this.

    ------

    Important note: There is curently a glitch in which you have to play more battles than required in order to unlock this achievement. I have yet to figure it out but it may or may not be related to the following:

    If flashcards dissappear during a battle. - Checked again, this doesn't matter.
    If the other player is signed in. - This DOES matter.
    If it has to be 20 unique/different songs.
    If DC export and DLC songs count. - DLC counts, DC won't always count.
    If you already have a score on the song in Perform It. - Doesn't matter
    If you are online. - Doesn't matter.
    If it is win 20 songs in a row or one session.
    Waiting for the crown to appear at the results screen and for the game to save before continuing.
    If the winning player must be ahead in score at all times during the song.

    When I unlocked it, the other player was signed and only my profile got it.

    -----

    This one requires a second player, a cardboard cutout does not seem to cut it (don't ask). However all you have to do is win, which means your "friend" can simply stand in place while you rack up points.

    First thing to note is that Dance Battles are much longer than the original song in Perform. So make sure not to tire yourself out by doing this.

    Secondly, difficulty does not affect how you score. Someone playing on Easy will score just as much as someone on Hard if they play just as well.

    Scoring system
    Flawless: 5,000
    Nice: 3,000
    Almost: 1,000
    Fail: 0
    Solo part: x2 multiplier for your moves.
    Free-4-all card: 10,000
    Free-4-all gold card: 40,000
    Also, make SURE you are playing as the profile who wins the match, and actually win the match. If you haven't set up Kinect ID for yourself (or haven't got one) the game has a habit of switching you around.

    One glitch that came up from time to time was that there would be no flashcards after a Free-4-all, but you are still required to play through the song. I couldn't figure out a way to make them instananeously appear back, so you might as well live with it until it is fixed. They'll come back for you if and once your opponent finishes a solo part.

    Shortest songs
    These are the shortest songs on disc, in terms of number of moves rather than song length.
    "Whip My Hair"
    "Rude Boy"
    "Oops (Oh My)"
    "Meddle"
    "Massive Attack"
    "You're A Jerk"
    "This Is How We Do It"
    "Get Ur Freak On"
    "Goodies"

    PunisherJust to add to this - I also got this after 20 wins in one session. To clarify a few other things:
    - Player 2 was not signed-in, just a guest
    - The wins were across DC2 songs, DLC songs, and DC1 songs
    - I had exited back to the DC2 Main Menu and Options a couple of times, but never exited the game

    So it looks like as long as you get the wins in one session, however you get them doesn't matter.

    It appears you have to do 20 in a row without turning off the game or playing any other mode.

    I did every single song over a couple days and nothing. Today I did 20 in a row (different songs), used a fake person as the 2nd person, and used the xbox controller to select songs, difficulty, etc. I had two profiles signed in. Achievement only popped on my account at the end. Also, it didn't matter that I walked in and out of range of the sensor, backed out to the main screen, etc. The only dances I did were the 20 battles in a row.

    Just don't do any other song modes in between or exit the game/turn off power and you should be good!

    *Explanation of "fake person" - I hung a shirt and pants on a tall stand lamp. I was able to stand behind it and move it until the game recognized it as a person and then I stepped back and to the side and it kept the lamp as a person and then picked me up as a 2nd person. It took a bit of wiggling around to get it to work like that but eventually it did.

    The AfterburnerWhat did you use as a "fake" person for the 2nd player?

    HARMZOOOI followed GatorFist lead and created a fake person as well. I did not sign into another profile, and did Whip my Hair 20 times in a row. At 15 times I went to bed while leaving the system on. When I woke up I did the other five and the achievement popped. A couple times after I walked off the screen my fake person and I got switched. I just tinkered with it until it switched back, or sometimes I even wobbled the fake person until it got points then just made sure I did not get points that way my profile still won.

    This achievement is not as simple as it is described. Many people like me couldn't unlock it after we won far more than 20 battles. If you are one of us, try the solution which finally worked for me: to win the 20 battles IN A ROW IN ONE SINGLE SESSION. I did it just now, and this achievement was unlocked right after the 20th battle win.
