    This achievement is very easy to get.


    Host ANY type of ranked match it dosnt matter if people join or not just as long as your hosting a dedicated server.
    You do NOT need to leave your xbox on for the full 48hours straight thats just insane. What I did was left my Xbox on at night when im not playing it for about 8-9 hours then quit the match and do the same the next night.. If you do it this way you should unlock it in about 5-6 days and doing it this way means your xbox wont overheat...

    Angrymagnox@ Clarion 85 - You probably disconnected from XBox Live but the server continued to run and it popped whilst you were offline. It is a very common occurrence.

    TillTheMorningI can confirm that you can get disconnected when hosting a dedicated server. I got disconnected during one night and got it a couple of days later 6 hours earlier than I thought. It seems to count as long as you hit "back to lobby". no matter if you got disconnected during the hosting period or not.

    morseypoo2000I can also confirm that if you get disconnected while hosting it still will count I just came home and was kicked off xbl and the achievement unlocked with no time stamp. Glad it counted!

    When you are creating a match just turn on the "dedicated server" option. When you get a black screen with some infos in white you did it right. You can host ranked OR player matches. Both will count! You can choose any gametype with any settings.

    One time I did not quit to main menu (just to dashboard). The time I have hosted did count. I wrote my hours down and could check that (only way to check your progress anyway). So if you did the same by mistake it should count.

    You do not have to host for 48h straight. And it does not matter if someone is joining or not. If you get the black screen it will count!

    When you are hosting a ranked match as player you have to go to the lobby after every match. You have to create a new match manually (no mapcycle).
    When you are creating a dedicated server for ranked matches the server will set up new matches automatically (like custom matches). So you do not have to create a new match every XX minutes.

    The played games on your dedicated server will count towards the timeshift veteran achievement (100 played games) but they will not count towards the timeshift champion (100 wins) achievement.

    Just adding to the help above,this achievement unlocked for me while i was on that black and white screen. obviously you still have to quit out for the hours to count up, but if you only need say 4 hours like i did, just leave it on the black and white screen and your achievement will pop,no need to quit out at the end.
