    Nelson Muntz said it best "Ha Ha" to all you kids that put the hard work into the cheevo while I will get it done in a day or so.

    Its just like "sopoholic" achivement in Tomb Raider. There are people who spent countless hours going for 3 re-ups in order to unlock the General character and sudenly the developers decide that the General will not count towards the achivement which is basicaly unfair. It seams that some developers are under influance of whiny players.
    In other words its like Epic would decide now that in order to unlock "seriously 1.0" You need 100 online kills instead of 10000+.

    well, i'm assuming that the minimum score is still there (was it 20k or 200k, been ages since I played, so ive forgotten)

    glad that I may have a chance to get this achievement now, it had to be done though, as the leaderboards are for all formats from what I could tell, and if none of the top 250 are from the WP version, it would be unobtainable, as it's lots easier / faster on a none WP device (or at least than on my ancient HD7)

    ^This.
    Although personally I found the Win The Hour achievement a lot more difficult than World Champ.
    I like what I like and I don't what I don't.

    Disappointed to hear this. Bit at least those that haven't got it yet will be happy. I particularly hate it when when a chievo is made harder after you've bought a game, like Crimson Dragon: SS

    So, jump on to a "quiet" language, play like crazy on monday and hope you get into the top 250? Ok sure.

    I don't think the Web or iOS version had this issue, did it? I do remember trying a few times to get something similar on the leaderboards.

    Why not giving them away at the first start while they're at it...

    Hey, it's not like they made a hard achievement easier. Trials HD had a HARD achievement that was changed. This is just an achievement that you need to grind, not difficult in the slightest.

    I was having fun grinding the game in other languages because I was learning words and finding how different it is from English. Just because they've made it quicker to obtain doesn't take away from the experiences I have with the game.

    Definitely a boo. I dread to think how many hours I ploughed into Arabic to unlock the achievement.

    I wonder if too many people complained that the achievement was hard so they thought of making it easier to obtain?

    Little disappointed but..eh..crap happens.

    Wow, looks like I can finally give this shot, this always looked like my kind of game but the Achievements stopped me from playing it.

    This is unfair to everyone who got this on the original leaderboards. I worked my ass off for that achievement!!!!!
