    The best option is to get a good boosting partner and select a time when you can let the game run for extensive amounts of time. For example, a friend and myself let this run every day while we were at work. This gave a full 10 hour run every day we did it and it took about 12 days to hit 100 due to a couple of unexpected disconnects (power, etc.).

    What we did was each setup a base and 2 war factories, set the war factories to rally in the middle of the map and queue up 99 tanks at each. This kept the servers thinking we were running the game while the tanks drove to battle each other in the middle.

    The only other things we did to ensure that EA's servers didn't kick us off was to use a Play and Charge kit so the controller didn't shut off and stayed online in a live party even though we weren't there.

    After setting it up this way, you should be able to stay connected for 10 hours + at a time and then when you are ready to finish for the day either sell off your base or build up enough tanks to take out your partner's base and end the game.

    EarthboundXWell setting the up the factories still wouldn't be a waste of time, you'd still be in the MP, so the time would still count. It only takes a couple minutes to setup a couple factories.

    I'm more worried about the possible lag creating the tanks creates, instead of just doing nothing.

    ThaDevilzHandYou don't have to build anything. I've been double boxing this game with myself, and I was building a structure so I could gather Tiberium for that achievement, but my second account doesn't do anything. Never have had the game disconnect once.

    velho lobodomarI have been boosting without building anything justlike @ThaDevilzHand mentioned before, hadn't lost connection any time, longest stretch i left my consoles was 6 hours. use wired controllers and rubberband the right stick that's all you should need.

    The way i did it was me and a mate plugged our controllers in using plug and play kits made sure auto shutdown was turned off and started an online game and then leave it for 10-15 hours (We did it over night and did it over 8 nights).
    The achievement unlocks once the game has ended. - Thank you SRJB for confirming this.

    We didn't build anything and had very few disconnections (if any it was due to my WP7 and because we don't live far from each other)

    Then about 10-15 hours later the person that needed to lose, just sold there MVC.

    Thank you HolyHalfDead confirming this: It has been reported that the games that got disconnected, count up to the point you get disconnected i.e if you leave it on for 10 hours and you get disconnected after 6 hours, then it only counts 6 hours.

    Note by SRJB: I unlocked this after the game was over. If you have the 100, do one more short game and kill all your/their units and structures and see if it pops at the game over screen.

    I would recommend losing if you need
    Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium WarsThe Golding RuleThe The Golding Rule achievement in Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars worth 0 pointsNegative Achievement: Lose 5 MP games in a row

    I would recommend doing it on something other than versus so you can work towards
    Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium WarsLosing FaceThe Losing Face achievement in Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars worth 0 pointsLose to someone Ranked 20 places below you in a MP Ranked Game

    both pointless achievements but completionist like me want them all smile

    Also if you are going to vote negative please comment to let me no why.

    HolyHalfDeadThumbs up. Just to confirm you do not need to build anything or rubber band the sticks.

    I let it run overnight but it got disconnected. However it recorded the match time before the disconnect as my longest match, so that is a good indication it will still count - of course you won’t normally know how long it was before you got disconnected. I haven’t been disconnected since then.

    SRJBJust a note, I unlocked this after the game was over. If you have the 100, do one more short game and kill all your/their units and structures and see if it pops at the game over screen.

    EthigyDo these have to be done in ranked matches? I’ve now idled for two nights in unranked versus and my longest match says 3 hours.

    This achievement will be a nightmare without a friend to boost with. Ranked playlists are the only ones that are included in the total time. The Best way to set up a match is to create a playlist with specific information, such as king of the hill with only 2 player slots open. The have your friend find that game by searching for those specific characteristics. Make sure that you pick the scrin so that you do not have build tiberium storage. At the start of the match build a refinery and a powerplant. Then, just let the game sit for as long as possible. The best way to check on the status of your hours is to go to your statistics. Add up the games played and multiply it by the average game length in minutes. then divide by 60 to determine the hours played. Good luck.

    To prevent any unnessesary tactics and setups, here is a simple guide.

    You just have to play ranked games for 100h.

    Progress can be checked in your statistics, they refresh once you boot up the game. Just multiply your average time with your total number of games.


    Make sure your console does have "auto turn-off" disabled.

    Mode: Ranked
    Gamemode: King of the Hill
    Duration: unlimited
    Players: 2[-4; more players allow you to work around disconnects while sleeping/not close to the console]

    Simply start the game and have your controller pluged in via wired connection/USB.

    To end the round, simply build some units and kill the boosting partners HQ or capture the hill.

    Achievment will pop once the game concludes. DO NOT QUIT. Either lose or win the game.

    Good luck till novmenber.

    Anything that other guides required that are definetly not true:
    - Rubber banding
    - building units - Important note: Building units or having buildings might freeze the game, depending on your connection. We had no disconnect while having just our HQ but 4 disconnects in 5 games with units other than a harvester.

    Achievmetn can be combined with:
    Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium WarsDr. Moebius AwardThe Dr. Moebius Award achievement in Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars worth 39 pointsGather 100000 tiberium in MP games

    Just choose Scrin and build a single refinery. Ofer the course of the night/afk time you will end up with nearly a million tiberium in bank. again, achievment pops once the game concludes.
