How do you find out your rarest achievement? As for the competition, I've got a couple of the low-hanging cheevos out of the way while my opponent is yet to score, and thankfully seems to be a bit more casual compared with your guy heatlight :lol: . I think I remember you having a tough matchup last year too. I wonder whether that's based on your big numbers or just that your high completion percentage simply means that what's left is rock hard.

Doesn't Trueachievements tell you your best one somewhere on your profile? I'm pretty sure Truetrophies does so I'd assume the XBOX one would be the same.

Yeah I just went with highest TA ratio, as that is tied to rarity (the higher the ratio, the lower percentage of people have unlocked it). Click 'My Achievements' and then click the Ratio header to sort them in order.

Is there any way to see Xbox rarity now that that's tracked?

I've noticed a few of mine that have a high TA rarity are actually not as rare on Xbox overall surprisingly.

According to TA, it's the 8 Ball Champion - No Aims achievement in Pool Nation FX, unlocked by finishing the 8 Ball Career Mode without using the aiming aid. It's been unlocked by 256 people out of 83,395 gamers who have started that game.

It was particularly difficult for me, as I did the Hard career at the same time, something I would definitely not recommend. :lol:


My one is from Pool Nation too :fp: followed by lots of Project Spark. Unfortunately, nothing particularly difficult there, just very grindy.

TA does list the Xbox ratio as well, but I don't think you can sort by it. I think that goes on unlocks vs people that have downloaded the game, not necessarily played it, which explains why theres often such a discrepancy.

Those Pool Nation achieves have stupidly high ratios hamm. I guess being a Game With Gold increased the player count, and it's not really the kind of game people play online or a career mode.

That sucks. Hopefully they add it one day. Or Microsoft do it in the OS themselves

So I'm now 4-1 up against my guy. He doesn't seem that bothered after all. Nearly made it 5 earlier trying to play Threes with a solver but I made a mistake and screwed the whole thing up. :fp:

And now 5-1. Not counting my chickens here, but this looks like being a far more comfortable match than I'd expected.

Good work. After being 3-0 up my opponent has matched me at 3-3 with the same achievements. I think this one is going to be close. I'll do my best to squeeze out another one or two.

Thanks dude, I see you had the highest ratio for your points finish while my ratio was ridiculously low. Hoping for a reasonable pairing this afternoon. I'm off work this weekend so I'll try to give it a good go.

Still 0-0 on mine but I'll get time to play on Friday. Is there anything I can help with?

Are you opting out then this week heatlight? I know that's a bad hand you've been dealt but you're only 2-0 down. I've got a gaming session planned for tomorrow so should get up to 4 or 5.

Yeah I got the arse. I also remembered why the competition annoyed me last year, it's weighted unfairly towards those that have a low completion percentage. If you get an easy list you can still get 15+ points if you lose, whereas I grind out a 3-2 win and get 13. Doesn't seem fair to me.

I might have a bash in the early hours of Monday morning, but it's my lads birthday today. I've been engrossed with Pinball FX3 this week - sixth person to complete the base game dontcha know. :-)

Redeeming myself somewhat this week with a nice 4-1 lead. It's not going to be enough to progress in the competition (due to the stupid rules) but it feels good to get back to being competitive. Also I knocked out an achievement on Rez HD that had been bugging me for ages. Should be able to finish that now, which I'm chuffed about. :-)
