Anyone Still Playing?

I started this way back in Aug 2014 then set it aside until Oct 2016 where I played for a day. Finally in Oct 2017 I tried to complete what was left for obtainables.

Specific questions:
1. Can anyone still send challenges? Every time I try, it gives me an error that I am not connected to the internet. (I don't need to send challenges anymore, but I do need to receive them.)
2. Is it truly possibly to do the Endless Run achievements without any Continues? I've gotten to 15,000 meters in 1 run but I struggle after that. For the other 5 endless runs achievements, I don't even get to half. I feel like even though these are "technically" obtainable, realistically, I don't have a shot without getting any Continues.
3. For Canyon (World 1), level 4, I cannot get any power-ups to appear. I've only unlocked the Slow Time one, and for all the other 14 levels it shows up so I can get the badge. But on this 1 level, no power-up ever appears. I found a YouTube video of someone running it, but they were getting some kind of freeze power-up. Not sure if that is required for this run, but I wouldn't think so. Any thoughts or ideas on this one? Once I solve it, I can get the achievement for having all badges.

Thanks,
Jeff

I just tried, and I was also unable to send challenges.
Game On.

Thanks, Jumbo. I had a friend on my feed post that he tried the same thing, and he also got an error. I think I'll submit a flag change that the challenge achievements are now unobtainable.

Any thoughts on #2 and 3?

Thanks!

I haven't played enough to know about those. I only started playing after the online services were discontinued so I've never used power ups or anything like that.
Game On.

Based on forums over on xboxachievements.com, plus responses here and gamertagnation.com, I am going to consider everything else unobtainable for me. Sounds like you need 50-60 continues to have a shot at the endless run and since I have 0 and cannot buy anymore, I don't see it happening.
