They have massively made this achievement easier!!

Now, all you have to do is get in a Stronghold Siege match--sort of. That is the hard part because either everyone playing Siege is already playing, or there aren't many playing.

Only try to get this on the weekends! There's so few people playing, that the weekend events are your best chance to find more players, unless there's a super event going on.

When you finally get into a match, you're golden! Except, it's GLITCHY, and may or may not unlock!!

All you have to do is finish the match, you don't have to score a certain number of points or anything, as the achievement description now reads:
"You fought for your guild in a Stronghold PvP match."

In my achievement winning match, I did pretty bad. With my Haste Cleric I got slaughtered by dedicated PvP'ers, escorted some horses, built some ballistas, and that was it.
Finished with 115 points, my team got decimated rather quickly, and the achievement popped at the end.
FirstParasiteBeen trying for days to get into a match. Guess nobody plays this....facepalm

Shadow 00 FoxI feel your pain. When I was trying for this, I couldn't find a match anywhere. However, it might be useful to watch the chat in Protector's Enclave--I've seen people saying to queue for Stronghold Siege and having almost enough... have you seen that?

FirstParasiteI'll check it out. Thanks for the tip!

Dr LatourI believe your wrong for saying all you have to do is get into the stronghold siege match since i know many people who got into a match and nothing popped at the end while others got it. I figure its like the heroic events so it might be based on what your class is suppose to do.

Shadow 00 FoxOk... I have a suggestion which you might be able to do, which I've done before several times when I was desperate for achievements like this. :-)

What you need to do is message a LOT of people.
1. Go to your friends list for this achievement, go to the top completions of Neverwinter who don't have this achievement, and message up to 500 of those people about a session you're posting.
2. It will take some time yes, but it's better than waiting for hours in queue.
3. Your inbox will probably be stuffed full.
4. Out of 500 people, you will probably get enough! Explain how difficult it is to get normally and you'll get more people.
5. Try to have everyone queue at the same time, and whichever team has more TA'ers, all go stand in a corner and let the other team wreck your stronghold.
6. And repeat because it's going to be glitchy!!
Stupid achievements like this require outrageous methods unfortunately..
Of course, if you're in a nice guild, they might queue up with you and save you a lot of trouble! :-)

SatNiteEduardoMy guild are running this at 5pm PST Friday 20 May 2016. I will also be queuing all weekend. I find the best time is Sat afternoon (US) / Evening (UK) time. Past few weekends I have got into a few matches each weekend. Don't expect to quere for 2 minutes and find a game and do not queue for multiple game modes if you want this. So find some single player activities to do and queue for this. I do Sharandar / Dread Ring and DHEs while queuing.

Mince Pie 77Got this early this morning. Only my second game... First I got booted near the end of a win... Second game got completely annihilated as a cleric (290 points and 2nd bottom). Lost the game but still got the cheeve.

Both games were around 1am uk time Saturday night/sunday morning on different weekends. Didn't queue for long. What a bitch of a cheeve!

The NerevarineThe achievement description changes when you unlock it. Winning was never a requirement nor was it in the description.

Shadow 00 FoxAm i missing something? Where is winning a requirement?

mamaaniWe did boosting session today, and had 2 PVP sessions at least for me.
First session, I won at 150 score. Second session, I lost. But They didn't popped.
Maybe glitch or Unobtainable.

Shadow 00 FoxRemember, it's GLITCHY! There's several possibilities... it's glitchy for you, or very delayed pop?
Posted by Shadow 00 Fox on 16 Dec 16 at 05:31
mamaaniBoosted over 10 people,and only got 1 member.I don't think it is delayed pop.

Posted by Iceberg082006 on 12 Jan 17 at 04:44
Shadow 00 FoxHmm.... are you trying on the weekends?
Posted by Shadow 00 Fox on 12 Jan 17 at 06:09
KlumpyPooIs there any chance people are still working on this? Maybe to work on setting up a session? I sit in the queue 100% of the time I am online now, have been for weeks, and siege never pops up to even try...

Iceberg082006Are you in a guild? See if they do it.

Achtilikewise, nothing pops, been in queue for 5 hours straight sometimes

MarvzMittsWhat is the minimum number of players needed to start a match?
Posted by MarvzMitts on 14 Jul 17 at 04:34
Shadow 00 FoxI thought it only queues up when you have 40 people queued, but it may have changed?

Burnah BrosI played multiple sh siege's and the achievement didn't unlock until I was on the winning team.
Posted by Burnah Bros on 23 Jan 18 at 11:15
KillersquirelzFrom what I was told, it's not actually about being on the winning team, you have to score a certain amount of points in general.
Posted by Killersquirelz on 04 Jun 18 at 22:21
Shadow 00 FoxIt's pretty hard not to score more points than I did.. my achievement winning point total was 115. laugh
Posted by Shadow 00 Fox on 06 Jun 18 at 01:51
ZogiasJust got the achievement, after getting 500 points but losing. Maybe that can help narrow down exactly what the specific qualifications are.
