Per TC Octus

"We designed the Flaming and Midnight Omen achievements to avoid that problem.

While they are currently unobtainable, sometime after the release of 5, we'll be making them craftable so you can complete the achievements. We're doing it after 5 as we want to preserve the exclusivity of those who earned them for as long as possible."

On the Reddit forums. So fret not, these achievements will never be unobtainable. smile

Will they stop banning achievement boosters after 5 releases as well?
No God, know fear. Know God, no fear.

To be fair, they've been saying it for years, except now we finally have sort of a timetable for it. I think that's good.

Most likely. They'll be 100% focused on 5. You'll be safer boosting after it's in full swing. The population in ranked for 4 is going to take a major nosedive in a month.

I'm in the part of the world they don't care about, there is literally already no population online here laugh Thus we HAVE to boost to get certain achievements - I just don't want to do it until it's safe from perma-bans.

The population in ranked is already non existent, the only mode I ever manage to get games in is 2v2 boxes.

Good luck either way. Ask HolyHalfDead how that worked for him. Servers around him literally had no one and they banned him anyways.

We live in the same country wink It wasn't him alone that warned me, but he is a great example for why I fear these devs.

I guess it depends where you are. I'm in the US and I play Ranked KOTH every day, only takes about 20-30 seconds to find a lobby.

Damn, I'm jealous. I've tried the queue the last few nights in Europe for ranked games and the only ones I manage to get are 2v2. Gotta play the drop in / drop out mode (I forget the official name) if I want to play any ring game mode.

I was going to say I can find games fairly easy in the UK. Not sure what's going on with the servers though. Everyone always has 100+ ping, why's that happening if we're supposedly on European servers? I can get better ping on US servers for god sake.

So there are people on TA who are somehow just now unlocking those achievements. Any idea how? They are the last 2 I need and at this point, even if it gets me banned, idc, as long as I get them lol

My understanding is you needed to go to the gears web site to claim the reward. Maybe the recent unlocks are by people who never actually claimed one (or more) skins when they earned them?
