The achievements for it are up, at least.
Disappointing, but probably a good thing.
They found a game-breaking bug with the update, so good on them to wait until it was fixed.
Finally! Not playing this again except for DLC or helping a friend. So tired of it. Still glitched for some and now another achievement is Discontinued. Can't recommend.

Thx. I wish we could figure out why neither Commitment is unlocking for you. As you commented, maybe Mon. Or maybe Tues after another reset. My only guesses are that I
always play several hours after the reset, when it's the next day both in EDT and PDT, or maybe that your Challenges didn't reset at least once.
I've got a theory. Almost every time I earned a challenge I would get a disconnected from the server message after the results screen. My streaks probably never started?.
That's a good theory. I sometimes get those messages, but they're pretty rare for me. My Xbox is wired with Open NAT.
When you complete a Challenge, does it show on your Halo Waypoint Service Record? I'd check that every day to make sure at least one registers each day.
Can you do match-making games towards AI for the achievement (the versus AI playlist)? I'd rather not upset my teammates by being terrible.
Expect so, but never tried. With your two boxes, I would go into Blitz 2v2 with Yang and let the other team win for quickest games. When Blitz 1v1 was still around,
that's what I'd do. I'd still play many cards, get many kills, do a capture or two at the beginning so I wouldn't be seen as AFK. But then I'd let the other guy get
"total domination" and be done in 3 minutes. Sometimes, my opponent would do the same. Maybe that's why they deleted Blitz 1v1. After Blitz 1v1 was gone, I would do Solo
War (1v1 Deathmatch, playing badly) or Blitz 3v3 (and actually try). Those seemed the quickest way to complete challenges now. Apparently 2vAI can take awhile since I saw
complaints that one of the first weeklies "Win against Normal AI in 10 Minutes" was almost impossible since the difficulty was Heroic.
I should check the Waypoint service record. I'll start doing that. My Xbox is wired with Open NAT so it's entirely on their end.
Reminds me of the "good old days" of spotty ODST connections. Yin, have you seen that Two Heads is currently unobtainable after the latest patch? Though I wonder if it
would.... OK, I was about to say "work with an offline disc install." But then I realized there's no couch or LAN co-op, so you can't do the requirement offline. My bad.
Bummer, now my #1 in Kansas is gone as well. Oh well, once I move to California it would have been moot anyway.
And worse is that it is still counting as a tracked leaderboard, not letting me add another or a way to delete it. WTF!!!

Can't untrack from leaderboard by chance?
That is no help since the Special leaderboard no longer exist so doesn't show in My Leaderboards, yet still counts as a tracked one so can't add
So there's a limit on how many leaderboards you can have? And you can't add a new one because the old Special still counts? Just want to make sure I understand the issue.
Yup, if you do not have a Pro account you are limited to tracking 5 leaderboards and I have no way to delete the nonexistent Special one now.
So now I effectively limited to tracking only 4 leaderboards until/unless they fix it. GRRRR!
You get 50 with pro account. I used all 50 lol
It has been fixed now, less than 5 min after I brought it to Rich's attention.
But the pain of losing our Special leaderboard will never heal....
Agreed, but now I am working on getting the #1 spots in KS for Golf and MMOs.
Bah! We were all special.
I guess I'll work on the On Rails and Health & Fitness LBs. Seem manageable enough.
That's pretty cool they fixed it so fast. Whenever I report a technical problem or bug, I'm ignored :/
Congrats! So did you have a streak going already, or just random luck?
Thx. I did have a streak, but it unlocked after one Blitz match. Didn't need a new challenge today. Didn't unlock yesterday, even though I played a few matches after it

started unlocking for others. Hoping that completing my first Weekly of the week (I have a streak) will give my Long Term, or maybe give it next day after a match. Or
maybe give it on Sunday after another Weekly reset. No one is quite sure what the pattern is. Hope you unlock both today.
I doubt I'll get anything today. I've already finished all three daily challenges and got my first weekly challenge for this week.
That stinks. So random. One lucky guy got both to unlock this morning and became the first to finish. Looks like he's still the only one.
Finished a Weekly but no Long Term. Maybe playing a match tomorrow will work. Or on Sunday. Or maybe I just have to do another 3-4 weeks. :( So tedious.
Finally! Hopefully it won't take another month for your last achievement.
Thx. Yes, hopefully will unlock soon. Not today, it seems. Finished a match and Daily this morning, no luck. Not sure if I should keep my Daily streak or not. Shouldn't
matter for Long Term Commitment, but I don't trust 343 to have this programmed correctly. Since only 1 person on TA has completed HW2, clearly still messed up for most.
Very broken. I've had the announcement for rank 23 after 5 matches in a row. And 20 matches in, 8 challenges later, I still can't get either of these.
Sorry they're not unlocking for you. I have no idea what I did differently than you. Hoping Long Term unlocks Sunday now after another reset.
Done until 343 fixes the two unobtainable achievements.
Congrats! Hope they get those fixed soon.

Thx. Just counted 218 of us on TA, sitting at 55/57. There's going to be a huge bunch of completions when those get fixed.
Legendary was actually fairly easy. Only failed 3 times, and 2 of those were the Retriever Sentinel destroying my base. 3rd was not defending base in Under the Dark.
Thanks for all the tips.
No problem. Glad it went well.
Hopefully it will be a shorter wait than some of the other achievements they had to patch in the past.
Yes. I think it's actually a good thing that they are broken from the start, so 343 hasn't given up support yet. HSA iOS and MCC CN were also broken from the start, but
it seems the player base is too small for 343 to care. I think H4 took so long because they thought they were done supporting the game.
Good point. And with HW2 MP in full swing and a lot of DLC in the pipeline, any problems should be given the attention they're due.
Yesterday the same seller had them for $40. Maybe it's just this seller, but looks like there's an overstock of physical copies. On the other hand, maybe more people went
digital than expected, due to the Ultimate Edition with very early HWDE. That got me to go with digital pre-order so I could do HWDE over Winter Break.
HW2 was never going to sell huge amounts, RTS's do not have a huge market, also more and more people are going digital every year.
Good-bye, Xbox Fitness. Such a shame. 33 of 59 challenges done. Most of the remaining 26 were paid workouts, but I also got lazy on a few of them.
Lego Dimensions Lego Batman Movie DLC has been on the 360 console for a couple weeks, but still isn't on xbox.com.

I'll try that. Perhaps he'll forward it on.
@XboxSupport on Twitter. I know at least one person there who is all over achievement issues :).
Hmm. Tweeted them last week with no response, which is odd. Usually they do respond.
Thanks to both for the suggestions.
OK, now DM'ing with "IS" at XboxSupport. They seem to understand what I'm talking about. I've had some silly "Have you tried turning it off and back on again?" convos in
the past, but XboxSupport seems to be getting better. Kudos if you're involved, Jorax.
Not directly, but gave a friend in the group a heads-up on the issue.
Ugh. Conversation taken over by QZ, who wants to know if power cycling my Xbox One will solve the issue. Yes, power cycling an Xbox One will cause Xbox 360 achievements
to appear for the first time for everyone in the whole world. I never knew my Xbox One was so powerful! "Have you tried turning it off and back on again?"
Sorry. I don't want to be a guy that attacks people online. Work has been stressful lately. I just wish XboxSupport personnel had a better understanding of achievements.
Yeah, @XboxSupport is only useful for those with account problems or people who don't know how to google easily-fixable solutions. Not real issues.
They did eventually believe me and said they'd pass it on to the proper team. Jorax's behind the scenes contact probably helped.
Good to hear!
