The requirements are:

1. You must have completed 100+ full games and earn a cumulative score of over 2,500,000 in the language you want the achievement for. (100 games and 2,500,000 score in English then placing in the top 250 on another language won't work)

2. Place in the top 250 of any of the top player leaderboards (all time, daily, weekly, monthly, yearly).

This achievement is already difficult in English and the languages available at the moment are very limited (English, Spanish, French, Italian)

The leaderboards aren't so competitive in Italian so if you are Italian or can speak it then you may be in luck.

The reason I and many other already have the achievement is because when the game was released there was a glitch meaning you only needed to have completed 100 games and then place in the top 250.

The achievement description for this is wrong.

1. You must have completed 100 full games in the language you want the achievement for. (100 games in English then placing in the top 250 on another language won't work)

2. Place in the top 250 of any of the top player leaderboards (all time, daily, weekly, monthly, yearly).

The top player leaderboards update hourly I believe so it may not register that you've completed the 100 games until it updates.

I unlocked this around 30,000 overall points and at 244 in the 'today' leaderboard.

If the achievement doesn't unlock straight away close the game and re open it.

Lot's of people report to be meeting all the requirements yet the achievement still won't unlock, although most do seem to unlock it shortly after so there may be some delay.
Σχ şlαy3rDoesn't work for me. Any idea why?

L J EDMWhat place are you at for the top player leaderboard?
Posted by L J EDM on 08 May 14 at 07:05
L J EDMYeas it should be, do you have 100 games on Italian? And is that rank from the top player leaderboards? If so which one?
Posted by L J EDM on 08 May 14 at 07:10
L J EDMRead the solution, I've updated it to be more clear.
Posted by L J EDM on 08 May 14 at 07:21
L J EDMNo problem, I hope it unlocks for you.

Σχ şlαy3rI played last night, got Sore Fingers Achievement and played well over 100 full games. Then I placed in the top 250 of every “Top Player” leaderboard. Tried to restart the game many times and also tried the WP version. It just won't unlock.. Maybe they already fixed it or it's just glitched for me. Well I'll give it a try again today and I'll post the results here.

SkrypekIt most probably is a "server side" achievement and they already fixed it.

TriggerMittI can confirm what EX slay3r is saying. I was around place 200 yesterday with 100+ games played and 75,000 points and the achievement didn't unlock. It has been patched server side.

L J EDMI will edit the solution accordingly, thank you.

RunSmith14Anyone know if this will unlock on Win 8 and WP8 if you unlock on one of them?
Posted by RunSmith14 on 08 May 14 at 18:20
L J EDMYeah it will.
Posted by L J EDM on 08 May 14 at 19:23
HybridchldDoesn't seem to be unlocking at all now.

I'm in the top 100, have 150+ games done and over 260,000 points and it won't pop on either version
Posted by Hybridchld on 08 May 14 at 19:25
L J EDMsomeone unlocked the achievement 30 minutes ago, so it can't be un obtainable.
Posted by L J EDM on 08 May 14 at 19:30
L J EDMAlso what's with the negative votes? If people have a better solution then they can post one themselves!
Posted by L J EDM on 08 May 14 at 19:30
TriggerMittNot sure why you're getting negative votes, this is a great solution.

Deschain019Just hit 250,000 in around 160 games and no achievement. Pretty frustrating, seeing as I'm just going to get passed now...
Posted by Deschain019 on 09 May 14 at 14:12
SaF ToasterCan't seem to unlock here either. Over 120 games, 300,000 points and in the top 100 All-Time :/ Guessing it may be to do with the 250,000 points achievement not unlocking?
Posted by SaF Toaster on 10 May 14 at 02:01
rocking23nfI cant get this to pop on either win 8 or wp8, I have 165 games played, total score 285k, my total score never seems to increase properly, my real score is closer to 500k but this game doesn't track it properly.
Posted by rocking23nf on 11 May 14 at 02:19
rocking23nfsometimes i login, my total score has dropped by 20k points, very frustrating game.
Posted by rocking23nf on 11 May 14 at 02:21
rocking23nfas i post that, the achievement popped, and then i logged in on my WP8 and it popped also. Strange game.
Posted by rocking23nf on 11 May 14 at 02:24
SaF ToasterMine randomly popped not long after too! Seemed to taken a bit more than the requirements, but hey, just happy it unlocked!

NalPleGoreFinaly i got it on FRENCH leaderboard after 10 hour i've got the requierement on top all of time (and over) leaderboard AND after restarting app and computer twice (maybe a synch bug)

MathGuy42According to this blog post the requirement will go up to 2.5 million points in a few weeks.

RosshkThanks for the heads-up, MathGuy.

I just spent 4 (almost) straight hours going for this. I had met the criteria after an hour. About 2 hours in, I was in the Top 250 Monthly, Daily, and Weekly leaderboards, and it still wouldn't unlock. I repeatedly tried closing the app, resetting the app, and restarting my computer, but nothing worked.
After about 4 hours, and after the leaderboards updated at the time, I was put #1 on the monthly boards. After closing and reopening the game, it popped. Apparently, if you're Rosshk, you have to get #1 on a leaderboard.
I just hope when the iOS version comes out, all my hard achievements will transfer and unlock right away.

JonnyBlazin5I just got it, only got 400,000 points total but am in the top 200 for the daily leaderboard.

I guess it has glitched on me too but in a good way :/
Posted by JonnyBlazin5 on 15 Jun 14 at 21:52
Σχ şlαy3rI got in the top 160 for the daily leaderboard but no Achievement... angry I have ~300,000 Total Points.
Posted by Σχ şlαy3r on 18 Jun 14 at 09:37
Σχ şlαy3rNow I'm 135th in the daily leaderboard with over 400,000 total score and no Achievement.
Posted by Σχ şlαy3r on 18 Jun 14 at 18:33
L J EDMUnfortunately I think it has been patched with the new score requirement. I guess you have tried restarting the game?
Posted by L J EDM on 18 Jun 14 at 21:50
Σχ şlαy3rYeah I guess I have to get 2,500,000 total points first... I have tried restarting the game many time both on WP and Win 8, but no luck.

jkmyoungI got it today with 661k. Maybe you only need 400k? Did earn about 1/4 of it today though. 25th of the hour, 543rd of the day.
Posted by jkmyoung on 28 Jun 14 at 02:02
jkmyoungI think it unlocked at the end of the hour. Maybe if you're on the daily list it only unlocks at the end of the day?

Mark FarleyI'm on the hour, daily, weekly and monthly list in the top 250. I have over 2.4 5 mil and 1000 games. I'm struggling to unlock this achievement. What triggers it?
Posted by Mark Farley on 11 Dec 14 at 11:52
Mark FarleyWell... You have to shut the game down completely and boot it back up. Ridiculous. Unlocked though :)
