To Get it Legit may takes very long time. Now I am writing a viable boosting method.

What you need is:
1. Two Windows Phone (OR Boost Partner)*
*Warning: One of you phone/ your boost partner's phone has to be master reset several times which may lead to all data lost on the phone

2. 3 Dummy Accounts.

3. If you own two Windows Phone, its much more easier, just use your main account (who want the unlock this achievement) to send the invite to another dummy account.

4. Once the dummy account receive such invitation, resign the game. (2 Rating points will be deducted)

5. The winner side starting Rating will be 1000, and win a game nets you 12 points until 1200 rating. After 1200 rating, each game nets you 2 points

6. For loser side, each game deduct 2 points, and after the rating drop to 800, winner side won't get any rating anymore. Thus at this moment, you have to reset the Windows Phone (obviously the dummy account), then create/login with another account, with 1000 basic rating, lose another 100 games to the winner.

7. Once the 2nd dummy's rating dropped to 800, reset the phone again, repeat step 6). Simpe calculations, this time lose another 50 games, if all done in correct, you can get a rating with 1500.

8. Afterwards, check your leaderboards rating (both local and online) if your rating already 1500, just simply quite your game, then enter the game again=> achievement unlock!

In case your partner also needs to unlock this, after you unlock the achievement, let you partners win, as your rating already high enough, your partner will get more rating points at the beginning (22 points per won against a 1500+ rating player). Thus lesser game is required to boost your partner until 1500 rating.

It may not takes so much time as every resign count as a win to you. But the troublesome part is you have to use 2 Windows Phone, Or either your boost partner is willing to give up the data on his phone and reset several times.

For my case, Me and my partner got this within 1 day via boosting. Thanks for my damaged Lumia 800.


EDIT: As per dicussion with my partner, after a detail calculations, if you can gather up 4 boost partners (including yourself), It sounds possible that no need to master reset any of your phones. But what all among you to do will be much more time consuming. Roughly speaking, 4 booster in total, begins with boosting 1 of you until 1500, so remaing 3 booster's rating will be 2 of them has 800 and 1 of them has 900. Then after the 1st partner unlock the cheevo, then you can start to boost the 2nd partner , and so forth.

EDIT 2:Dear Guys, would like to share with you who were using WP8 ...I tried to help my fd to boost who was using WP8 last week, and after he reached 1500 rating. achievement didn't pop. Afterwards we tried method , and then found that, after he played a random skilled match, then resign, the achievement popped! He also encounter same situation for played 10/ 50 games achievement. What you have to do is entering a random skill match and then resign. Hope it helps!
BUBBYEI was hoping someone is willing to help boost me on this. I helped a friend boost up, now my rating is really low. Would be much appreciated.

whanatonDo you always lose 2 points for a lose? Regardless of your rating? Cos if that's the case, then if you don't want to reset your phone and lost data, you could trade off wins until both people are on 1200, then one person needs 150 wins to get to 1500, and the other will be at 900 after 150 losses. Once this happens, switch and let the other person win.

If you take it in turns, it will take 20 games for both people to get to 1200, if they're starting from 1000

x InSoMniA oDon't know why people would down vote this, luckily I have 2 windows phones so it only took an hour to get from 1000 to 1500, if that.

CL1333Re: Whanaton, thanks for pointing out your thinking, however I am afraid that won't work. In my case, my main account start with rating with 1000 and then won on a 1500 rating partner , I gain 21 points and he also lost 21 points. Afterwards when my rating jumped over 1200, I can only get 2 points and my partners also only deduct 2 points. FYR, when I reached 1500, my partner dropped to about 1032.

CL1333Re X InsoMniA o, Lucky you! I also have no idea why some useless and no guts HATERS to negative vote on this solution. Maybe even though I have such great solution but they have no friends and no 2 phones to do so?
Posted by CL1333 on 11 Dec 12 at 02:34
abtimbadIf you have two Windows phone then just send the invite with the dummy and resign right away. No need to put a word down on your main phone and send it. So basically resign before you put the word down and the other account wouldn't even need to do anything.

TOBY 1K NO BEThis is glitched for me... Sat on leader pares with over 1500. Tried playing, winning, loosing, reinstalling. Still no joy
Posted by TOBY 1K NO BE on 15 Dec 12 at 19:53
DeceptiCog72283do the points gained and lost stay the same wether you play or not? If you play a full out game...do you only win 12 points still?

TOBY 1K NO BEI got mine to pop. But your gunna need another windows phone. Upload your profile on another phone made it unlock for me!

PlanetPhilThis is a fast method... if any of these details help anyone - so If you have a spare old phone even running Windows 7.5, you can reset it, then get it on a local wifi connection, log into or create a dummy account, and download Alpha Jax. Then friend your main account, have the main account accept it, then send an invite from the dummy account phone. Note: The main account DOES NOT need to accept the invitation. Once the game has started on the dummy account phone, click on the 3-dot options button and choose resign. Then hit the back button. In this setup, your dummy account phone is suggesting the game, then rescinding it. This will count even though you're not even bothering to touch any buttons on your main account phone. I did check my main account phone once in a while to make sure I wasn't seeing my rating stop climbing - as after the dummy account phone rating drops below 798, you won't get more rating. In fact, once the main account rating climbs at a rate of +2 per resigned game it wins, it will only climb at a rate of +1 once you get to 1400. // ALSO, if you get to 1500 via only winning resigned games and the achievement doesn't pop - make up a small word or pass the turn in a new game on the dummy account phone, then make up a few big words on the main account while the dummy account passes, then once safely up in score by say at least 20-0, have each phone pass for 3 turns. The achievement will pop because the code registers that you climbed into the "1500+" threshold by playing an actual game with points. // Finally... I would definitely save this achievement for last, and try to get most of the achievements via pass and play if you're going for the quickest route to 200g. Appreciate the original poster's method, this def. got me started, really hope all this longwinded stuff I wrote can help out a bit. Take care!!!

SquareHeadKillri just got this achievement today by using my new lumia 920 (W8) as dummy account, i needed 3 dummies and using my old LG E900h (WP7.5) as main account on wifi. it tooked me like 1h30 to get my 1500 and it didnt pop until i left the game and came back. All i did is, i created a game with my LG and then i pass my turn and my Nokia resign. After that, i kept loosing to help my friend and when he hited 1500, i was at 1032.
Great solution, it worked very well thanks :)

ScowyI don't have a spare Windows Phone to use to get this, so if anyone that already has this would like to help me get it, I'd be grateful.

SpeaseHe was describing the point gains/losses assuming youre boosting, If youre playing legit, using the opponent based on skill choice, you should stand to gain or lose between 4 and 8 regardless of rating. If youre using random opponent, theyll probably be at a low rating. losing to them could result in 12 or more rating loss, while only gaining 2 if you win. You can look up ELO for a better explanation
Posted by Spease on 17 Jan 13 at 19:44
PRELUDEcriswatch out if you tend to use a word generator, because there are some very angry people out there that get mad and dont understand that your just trying to win to get 1500 rating for an achievement, i understand that its cheating but ive seen worse. youve been warned.
Posted by PRELUDEcris on 28 Jan 13 at 19:49
WorhammerYeah I had one guy get pretty mad about it, but for the most part I've actually gotten matched up with other people who are very obviously using scrabble solvers as well.
Posted by Worhammer on 01 Feb 13 at 21:48
WorhammerFunniest thing is, the dude who got really pissed at me for using the scrabble solver REMATCHED ME!!! (and either his scrabble solver sucked, or he didn't use one....so I ended up beating him again by like 200 points)
Posted by Worhammer on 01 Feb 13 at 21:49
Fadi kunI boosted with my old LG on my Lumia 920 up to 1500 and the achievement didn't pop. I then started a random and skill match, and resigned like the OP suggested and I ended up losing a ton of points (still no achievement). I got back up to 1500 and played one full game with myself like PlanetGalida mentioned and it finally popped for me. I'm done with this game! Thanks!
Posted by Fadi kun on 03 Mar 13 at 23:11
WorhammerIt's definitely a WP8 only issue. I was unable to pop it and instead of risking the point loss, I logged in on my Trophy (WP7) and it popped immediately, didn't even need to check stats or anything. So for those of you with old phones, go that route first.
Posted by Worhammer on 03 Mar 13 at 23:34
JissiHi, anyone who needs this: I am only 3 points short of 1,500. Whoever posts here first willing to get it: I'd add you to my friend list and after you resign 1-2 times, I'll resign to you as much as you need to boost you up.
Please dont send random friend requests, I'll send it to the first volunteer myself.

HK LEE - I've checked your profile, you dont seem to have the game thats why i put this up for everyone instead of contacting you.

Dancsi27I unlocked it using the 2 phones method (one WP7 and one WP8) however, the achievement (along with other achievements) didn't unlocked on my WP8 until I did this trick:

1) Did a reset on my WP7 and added my main account (the one with the 1500+ rank) and downloaded Alphajax on the phone then I loaded the game. Achievement unlocked along with 2 other achievements. The achievements were still locked on my WP8, even after I quit the game then reloaded the game/rebooted the phone and reloaded the game, so I deleted the whole game from my WP8 then I reinstalled it on my WP8 and all 3 achievements were unlocked now.

So if anybody has problem unlocking the achievement(s) on WP8, can try this method instead of playing a random game then resigning which could end up losing lots of points from your rank

Failure OnlineThis NEEDS to be edited into the solution: Posted by PlanetGalida on 16 Dec 12 08:53:12

Back, rematch, resign, repeat on dummy account. Gets the main account a win in mere seconds. Much quicker than sending rematches through the main.

FELDGESCHREIthis is gonna make me go nuts!! takes forever to finish a match legit-got to at least 1262 in steps of 2points ( can u loose even more than 12points for a loss? ) then lost 1 match 261-262 and dropped back on 1250...so sick n tired of this....does it make a difference if i choose random skill opponent or someone who´s better than me?
btw if anyone could help me boost from 1250 to 1500 he´d earn my eternal gratitude,lol would of coz help u then til i´m down on 800 pts if needed....
Posted by FELDGESCHREI on 17 May 13 at 21:14
FELDGESCHREIbtw can any1 tell why this game does not jumps to the top of my gameslist on my gamercard like any other game after u played it ? it did so in the 1st time but didn´t since a few months....
Posted by FELDGESCHREI on 17 May 13 at 21:16
GhostWrexIf you're going to try this legit (well, with a solver) do skill matches. This way, you lose a minimum amount of points from losses and gain a lot more than 2 from wins. I went from 1400 to 1500 in about 12 wins (with a loss thrown in to boot). Only thing I've seen is that people ranked that high are much less likely to idle for 7 days, giving you a walkover win, but of you use a good solver, you should win all games in under a week anyway.

Senior ChuponI think this will be a lot easier now that the Windows 8 version is out. Progress is saved across both platforms. You can sign in and out of local profiles on the windows 8 machine. You could theoretically create as many silver accounts as you need and keep winning against those.

Lonegunman718for me after being at 1500 twice i got it after completing a full game while over 1500.
Posted by Lonegunman718 on 16 Jul 13 at 21:51
marklynxThumbs up from me. I had a rating of well over 1500 and it never popped. Got it to pop when i Loaded the game with my profile on my WP7 rather than my WP8 that I was plying with the whole time...
Posted by marklynx on 19 Aug 13 at 16:40
BradTheChickenI realise this is quite a late post, but if anyone is willing to help me boost this, I'd be greatly appreciative. Plodding my way slowly through legit games (Not even scrabble solvering!) and am up to 1343 at time of posting, so shouldnt take too long. And of course I'd be happy to reciprocate.

Message me on XBL at BradTheChicken, thank you. :)

unkled20I just wanted to say that you don't actually need two Windows phones to boost this, you can use a Windows phone and a Windows 8 pc. I was going to use two phones, but when I downloaded this game and started it up, 3 achievements unlocked for me. I figured since this happened, maybe the Windows 8 game and WP games share stats. I checked my stats and I was already almost at a 1200 rating. I sent a game invite to my wife's gamertag and checked on my Windows 8 laptop and the game was available to play. I boosted the rest of the games I needed with her account and another account all on the Windows 8 pc. Hopefully this will make it easier for more people to boost this achievement.

Senior ChuponRoughly how long did that take you?
Posted by Senior Chupon on 03 Dec 13 at 14:34
unkled20It probably only took a couple hours, at the most. Sometimes it's hard for me to gauge how long it takes me to complete things because I am always doing other things while playing, making dinner, watching tv etc. I would say roughly about two hours though.

BODZ61I cannot sign out of my main account while using Win8. I tried everything I can think of.
Any suggestions?

Senior ChuponYou can't sign out on Windows Phone 8, you can only sign out on Windows 8 (PC).
