    Guess I'll need to pick a day and play non stop to be in the top 250 for that 24 hour period. Hopefully it isn't gonna need too many games.

    Nice. I should be able to actually finish the WP and Win8 versions now as that's the only achievement I'm missing in both.

    I would almost regret doing it in Arabic now, except even with people who actually speak the language playing, I'm still in the top 100 all time and 57th for points per game and I haven't played since December. It was an interesting experience, followed by asking people who actually speak the language what certain words meant because I kept seeing the same patterns.

    I think it's still going to be a madhouse for English, but I expect to see the ratio drop like mad one way or another. I wonder if there's going to be a minimum score stipulation independent of time to qualify, like how you needed 85,000 points before you counted in the top 250.

    From the sound of the official page linked in the article, the Daily leader boards won't unlock the achievement. The weekly ones should be easy to get though.


    I m ay actually attempt this achievement now

    Wow...I put so much time into the Arabic leaderboards to get that damn achievement and now they're just handing it away. Pretty lame....should have done this a long time ago if they were to do it.
    Jump right out of a creek!

    oh well playing in Arabic was an interesting experience. Don't put to much stock in a ratio. The only person who cares that you unlocked it is you

    Easy peasy now in Arabic. You can probably get there with a couple of games played for the Daily leaderboard.

    I agree with this. I'm not entirely happy about this achievement being made easier, but I'm not upset either. I enjoyed learning Danish words on my journey to 85k. I'm proud of what I accomplished and it's not affected by others getting it easier than me.

    Wow! What was the point of grinding away in Arabic then? I mean, why not do this earlier in the games life?

    Will this count on Win8 version too?
  • Posted on 23 April 13 at 04:18Permalink
    Disappointed about this. Was looking forward to the grind, and it gave me something to do in my free time for the next few months, oh well.
