    Blood DMHuh I guess September was a really bad time to start this game then :P

    Has the playlist dissapeared previously or is it a first?

    Nobody had unlocked this achievement since August 2018. Looks like it is Discontinued for now.
    People have been unlocking it pretty much every day?

    metallicafan459There is currently a social CTF playlist - not sure if this counts?

    TheDonSimeoniEDIT: It popped after I finished a game of Area CTF, so the Social CTF does work, it just didn't update my Achievement Progress for a while.

    The Social CTF playlist doesn't seem to count. I had 3 games, just played and won one, still on 3. I would just stick to Ranked Team Aena.

    People are still unlocking it so the achievement is still very much possible, just luck if you get the correct game modes.
    EDIT 2: I may have gotten lucky, but in 4 games, I didn't play the same game mode twice, and I never played Slayer.

    EscapeTheApeHuh, does that mean Social works for all the non-Warzone mp achievements or just this one?

    sliykCan this only be done in the ranked playlist? Really struggling to find games there.
