A big cheer, everyone's favourite achievement from Fifa 10 has made its triumphant return. Or not.

I keep finding forums telling people not to get this because it's unsporting, childish, etc. However, it's an achievement, and people who want to 100% this game will need to get it.

There is a more sporting way of doing this than just quitting five games you're losing in (though that will of course work):

- Start a ranked Xbox Live match via the main menu
- At the start of the game, score an own goal or let them score as quickly as possible
- Wait a few seconds for the score to register
- Wait until at least the 5th minute of the game, this is the minute at which the game registers the result if someone quits out. Any earlier and it might not work.
- Press start, and quit

This way your opponent won't hate you for abandoning the game since it only lasted a minute. If anything, it's a quick "victory" for them rather than the complete waste of time seen with actual quitters.

As Brokensword pointed out in the comments, you could also do this in Online World Cup mode, giving your opponent a registered win in the process and keeping everyone happy. Doing it with a low star team will also net you the achievements for finishing the world cup group stage with them, or entering the world cup with a team who'd never been there before (eg the Faroe Islands)
