Seems totally broke, I cant load a single default rival, friend, nothing, any more ideas on how to get about the sever being unavailable? Im playing on the 360 or XB1, anybody like to make friends to see if we can select rivals that way?

Can play online but don't always get XP. Up slowly uploading club 100 medals as I go. The damn rivals being the problem!

I'm not part of a club, does anybody have one I can join?

You need to wait. They come and go.
Horizon 2 Xbox 360 was broken for months and now it's working, loading the rivals all the time. If you are also playing that one I suggest you play there a bit because it's a grind.

Is playing the default rival still a viable option? Not once today ive had an option of a rival ive tried all day on and off...

I'm getting the online cheevos done first now I'm starting to regret it due to this. The levelling up and races is going ok I play my XB1 (other account for boosting) my main on 360 side by side no problem in private lobby so far, other than not getting XP sometimes.

Yes you can use the Rival suggested but it's always a better time than yours, so if you are forcing too much you may end up repeating some laps to win.
For Forza Horizon 2 different classes are on the same event so you better upgrade a car to the maximum before trying.

Horizon is just 10 Rivals and 5 for Rally... super fast. You can even do Rally first and you'll need just 5 for the main game.
Horizon 2 is 200 Rivals minimum mathematically. It may need 201 or 202 to reach the maximum reward if you manage to do it in one event. Consider 230-250 or more...

Horizon online is not that much honestly. It's better to wait for the servers to come back instead of waste time seeing the error message IMO. Remember the game just received a 4k pack so people will likely complain. It will come back, if it's not working, focus on another game.

Managed to get both the rivals related achievements, but what an absolute faff! good advice In the solution but only 1 worked for me, once I worked it out, it wasn't to hard to learn the servers behaviour. Just need to buy my design for my last server related cheevo, ploughing my way to 100% now!

My vinyl design is sb33 if anybody wants to help and I will return the favour to as many as need it who also posts below.

Also I beat a rival for 999million laugh I can gift any cars towards club1000

How did you manage to even get to the rival leaderboards? I cant even upload a medal cause I don't have enough time to earn one before I lose connection with the server.

So does this mean medals don't work.

I would have to say yes, at the moment at least. If the servers were to start functioning properly again I'd be able to complete this game so I'll be checking fairly frequently and will post in here if things start working better.

I got the medals achievements no problem with the dodgy servers, 1 to go. Just the storefront not working. I am prepared to finish on 1490/1500.

How are you getting the medals? Whenever I try the game loses connection real quick.

Most of the time I fast travel the medals board pops up, enough time to get a medal in most cars. 3/5 times I do it, it saves other it doesn't. Really not that hard or time consuming compared to the rivals and storefront cheevos, the servers in that instant are shocking.

A week or two ago it was working for the day I played, so I'm assuming that it's spotty and only works on some days.

Forza is Microsoft’s worst-treated line of exclusives. I might just email them about it to see what they can do, but I understand why they wouldn’t care that much given that the game is discontinued.

They said on twitter 29 of June they were checking Forza 3 and 4 servers. Probably they will fix Horizon too.
