    Isn't this easy to get if you play in arabic or an obscure language anyway?
    Easy, yes. However, it's also very time consuming.

    As someone who already has this achievement, I'm not really fussed that they're giving it away to other people, I'm more bothered that they put a leaderboard achievement in anyway and then repeat the mistake for Snap Attack.

    It is a bit hypocritical of the developers to do this though, I'm sure they said at release they wanted this achievement to be only for dedicated players to unlock.

    YAY! This was the first game I played on my WP when I got it. I was so excited to play a game I was thinking this was one of the easy 50 gamer score games and then after I started it was when I realized it had leaderboard achievements.

    Sweet, I'll give it a like if it means I scan start this game finally.

    Question though, will it unlock all other leaderbpard ones like the ones you should unlock before this?

    Lame. I worked hard for those achievements but I guess it's good for others.

    Got neither windows 8 nor Windows Phone so to hell with this scam. I hope this like when Rod Ferguson wanted followers and promised Double XP for like every 10k people and he had to stop when it got too far then his followers dropped right after event lol

    If it did reach 100,000 likes, I wonder if the achievement would be for 4th July 2014 only? Then after that it's back to normal. And enough of MM/DD date format, it's wrong! warning
  • Posted on 01 June 14 at 20:18Permalink
    Lets hope there are enough people out there who want this achievement!
  • Posted on 01 June 14 at 20:24Permalink
    This is great. I want to do this, but I work too much to have the time to get this normally. Plus, my phone cannot connect to the game where I work so I can't even play it there during breaks.

    Leaderboards should never have achievements tied to them anyways. Most people don't have the free time available to make it to the top of a leaderboard (as shown by the high ratio here). Worse are when people with too much time and money buy multiple consoles and gold accounts just to prevent others from reaching the top and getting those achievements.

    A leaderboard should only be for those that just want to be "better" than others at a game.

    I didn't get this achievement and don't intend to, but it is pretty disrespectful to people who dedicated a lot of time to unlock it. Moreover, what is the relationship between "like our Facebook page" and "place in the top 250 of a leaderboard"?

    Seeing as the game is old and free its possible they're thinking of closing the servers down and want to make sure everyone was given a chance to get this maybe.
    I find bugs, its my thing! I don't break things on purpose it just happens :D

    I thought this article was about the awesome "fix" for SnapAttack's previously glitched achv (which is also tied to a leaderboard achv)...250k score won't unlock, so now it is 2.5m score, and the achv tied to it will now require 2.5m as well. Yay.

    I'll take the freebies (both) since they are causing me such a hassle with their new game!
    Look at me so I can finish!

    You have to complete 100 rounds anyway.

    Well technically they gave them all away for free, the game is free itself after all. wink
