Overachiever Glitched?

I didn't have a seasonal PR stunt available in Summer so was quite pleased to see one appear for my Autumn selection. First thing I do - I go and do it to get the Overachiever achievement.

No achievement. Nothing pops.

I have improved my previous score slightly and it is saying Seasonal Objective complete ... but no achievement?

Anyone else having this issue, have any suggestions or want to join me in shouting angrily at yet another glitched Forza achievement?

I didn't have the issue, but my previous score was only the 2 star level. I also had no PR stunt available in Summer.

I have heard others post that if they had already posted a better score than the seasonal requirement, they don't get the achievement. Might have to wait until the next objective comes up and hope that you haven't already scored the requirement.

I didn't have one for Summer either. If I'd known this was going to be a requirement of the achievement, I wouldn't have done any of the PR stunts. It's very frustrating. The only stunts I haven't done are Speed Zones and Drift Zones and I SUCK at those haha

The achievement needs flagging as "missable" cos if you do all the PR stunts before you get a seasonal one, you're locking yourself out of getting the achievement.

Well this is bad news. I've finished about 90% of the PR stunts in total already. I know last week I had finished a summer PR stunt (one that I thought hadn't played yet) and never got the achievement for it (I wasn't aware of the achievement at the time so I didn't think anything of it). No fall PR stunt has shown up for me. Has this issue been made aware to Playground?

I had already 3 starred the summer speed trap and, by coincidence, had beaten the seasonal target while it was inactive. When it became active the game showed that i had completed the higher target but gave no reward, and even though i then beat it and my previous best again it still didn't give the forzathon award or achievement.

I did manage to get it yesterday for the autumn jump though.

What are you all using to do the Autumn Jump? I have three starred it prior to autumn but now need to get 4 more meters for the achievement. Can’t seem to do it again 🙂

Agera RS as an X class. Thats what I use to do ALL my PR stunts. The drift zones that I have to get 90K I used 2018 Mustang GT

I used the Agera RS for the jump as well - got something like 260m which places me around 800th in the world for that jump... which is a MASSIVE accomplishment for me cos I'm very average at the game.

My point being I absolutely destroyed that jump prior to it becoming the seasonal so had no chance :(

Just got the achievement. The only way I was able to even get the seasonal PR stunt to show up on my map was to visit the "Welcome Home" screen, select the seasonal events page, and press cn_A for "Show Map". From there the seasonal PR stunt was visible, and I was able to do it.

By the way, I use a Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 "Forza Edition" for almost all speed related PR stunts and danger signs. I use the Audi Sport quattro S1 (fully upgraded) for ALL drift zones (makes most of them quite easy) and any off-road speed zones (tuned for acceleration over speed for the zones)

I've got no issues getting the PR stunt to show on the map, I just can't get the achievement to pop because I've already met the requirements.

Just did it with the Agera, for me I had already three starred it but beat my PB to take the achievement.

I don't know why this won't show up on my map. It only shows seasonal race events, no PR stunts for me at all.

Nevermind. Rebooted the game and it popped up on the map. So if you are having problems with it not showing up, trying starting up the game again. I probably had to do it 2 or 3 times for it to show up.

Rigpig, I have also bettered my score but to no avail. I think the seasonal requirements are higher than the 3-star requirements so if you hadn't met that previously but did when you re-did it, then that'll be why its popped. Sadly, that particular danger sign I'd absolutely smashed the first time around :( I've gotta hope its another easy danger sign or speed trap next season that I've got wiggle room on cos if its a drift zone, I can't even meet the 3-star requirements let alone exceed them haha

Yes, I had to get an additional 4 meters on top of my PB. Not sure if that’s the same for everyone or if it’s a fixed difference that you have already exceeded. If that’s the case then anyone high on the leaderboards will be in the same position as you. I was going to spend some time today improving my PB on all the Danger signs but because of this I decided not to 🙂

I think it's a fixed amount which I've already exceeded. Thankfully, I think this is the only one that I've REALLY exceeded so maybe the winter one will let me get the achievement... but yeah, anyone high on the leaderboards is in the same position without a doubt.

As for improving your PBs... you should go for it now you've got the achievement man!

I’ve three stared everything except the drift zones so I’m trying anything else to delay having to do that 😀😀

Well the winter one doesn't work either. After having been a b***h to beat the first time round, i even managed to beat my PB by ~30m and the Seasonal target by ~60m and the achievement still didn't trigger. cry
