    Guess this might explain the second title updates for these games the past day

    Bet Cheevo Guides is gonna have a fit over this since he'e the main reason we had these absurd easy cheevo list changes in the first place lol.
    Nah those have been planned for a while, but there's a limit to how much can be added how frequently, they had to wait for the new year. They're going even higher under their current plan.
    Huh interesting, although proberly no point carrying title updates on now that they'll revert all the games back to how they were, forcing full playthroughs pretty much.

    Story is, or what he alleges, is he contacted someone at xitilion to make them easier.

    They're only doing this cause of the 10,000 gamerscore rewards program. They don't want everyone to get the free value of the reward points
    That is, if you already own those games. Spending 5€ to get 3€ (3.000 GS) is not a fair trade

    I find this hilarious that they go after them for this but not publishers and developers with broken achievements.
    Couldn't agree more!

    The Xbox achievements system has been broken for a very long time now. I judge myself by my TA score instead of GS.
    They need to be looking at the gamerscore structure as a whole.

    Yeah if I recall CG himself proclaimed such a thing in a few of his youtube videos before, least within the descriptions

    Games have achievement requirements changed all the time. Most common one I can think of is Rainbow Six Siege? I also recall Neon Abyss recently having some changed. Why are these games different?
    My thoughts exactly. There's not butt loads but definitely a good number of games with things changed, including big names like Destiny and, as you said, Siege. Anyone read the publishing terms and know why this is different?

    Yessssssss. Couldn't agree more. GS has become this saturated mess that isn't all that exciting to look at anymore cause of games like this.

    lol and I just saw an equally very easy title update for Castle of No Escape.
    Welcome to TA, where stats are made up and some achievements do not matter.

    Only game I haven't played is CoNE 2 so I think I'll get in on that before these changes happen.

    Funny thing is none of these games are even that hard except for maybe Cold Silence.

    The ta score is broken lol. Not gamer score. Inflated ratios with bogus accounts... All games should be based of total Xbox players. Regardless if the have the game or not. Etc.

    So, Microsoft is pretty much saying Killer Instinct and Sea of Thives, both games owned by them also broke the rules? When are the requirements on both games going back to the original? Or they are jusy enforcing the rule when it pleases them?
