    When you are in a lobby, you can quickly check the host with Y and check out his achievements. And if he got the viral achievement you just join the game.

    But:
    It isn't enough to defeat the one with the achievement, you also have to win the game. So you can't just start a 5-player game and just vipe out the one with the achievement.

    Thereby I would recommend playing 2-player games for this one. You should be able to finish the Proving Grounds map within three rounds (All 4 Barracks, Garrison region (the region with the SE barrack) and Two continents objectives)

    TchitcheryneI am having a lot of trouble getting this achievement. People always quit out right when you're about to beat them. I've beaten at least 4 different people with the Man Up!, but they all quit before I can deal the final blow. Is anyone else having this problem?

    I am proposing a pledge of good faith and allegiance.

    I will help at least the first 10 people to message me get this. [edit] Because I can pass off the achievement by quitting out of a player match this takes less than 5 minuets to pass on. so as long as the game is just sitting on my hard drive I can help people out [/edit]

    I will help anyone who needs this achievement, all I ask is that you put your name out here in the comments and help at least one other person who needs it. because not only are viral achievements stupid they are annoying in games that take a long time to finish and with this game even if you get in a match with someone who has it and there are other people playing legit you have to beat all of them and win the whole match.

    Also don't get me started on 0 GS achievements angry

    I'm sure anyone in the comments would be willing to help out wink

    As for me I'm usually most available weekdays from 15:00-17:00 US Central (GMT-6). I can't really promise anything on weekends but just add me on XBL with a message with "RISK" in it and I'll see what I can do.

    I can confirm that Sashamorning is correct in saying all that is needed is for someone to create a player match and hold a private slot and invite the other person in. once the game starts the player with the achievement will pause and chose to "Concede game" The player left in the match should see the victory screen and the achievement will pop.

    [Boosting Tip] If you still need to go for the other online achievements
    RISK: FactionsGlory HunterThe Glory Hunter achievement in RISK: Factions worth 63 pointsWin 10 ranked games on Xbox LIVE.

    RISK: FactionsMaster & CommanderThe Master & Commander achievement in RISK: Factions worth 40 pointsWin a 5 player ranked Command Room game on Xbox LIVE.
    its very beneficial to try and have at least one person in your group get the achievement beforehand because with everyone trading wins one person can pass it on to everyone else in the group after a round of wins are traded



    ---Game set up information---
    I have not yet confirmed if it can only be the non host who gets this achievement. I do not think it is but I will try and validate that part.
    anywho the person setting up the match should set the game up like this for the quickest results:

    Match type: Player match
    create match
    any two player map
    1 private slot
    somewhere there's a "random" or "manual" set up option choose the random one so that it "randomly" allocates the territories at the beginning of the match so you don't have to waste time picking out the whole map. just your capitals.

    place both your capitals and have one person make at least 1 attack. then the person with "Man Up" can concede the game and it should count

    This can be earned easily by boosting with someone who has the achievement. Set up a player match and invite someone in. Once the game starts, have them concede the game, and the achievement will pop.
