I'm due to get about 500 from Doom today at some point, but as MHTL has said it's been a tough week to get time in front of the XBox. I can download a game and get a quick 1,000 out to hit the 2,000G target but I'm not sure if that will help overall.

We probably need at least 2,000 more ratio difference for us to stand a chance. I can chuck in a good bit more but that gap is to big to bridge on my own


Sorry dude, just finding it difficult to get any time in front of the box at the mo. I might be able to get Carrion done later, that'll help.



No worries dude, that’s fine. Just wanted to know before spending the time. We still have a bonus to use that can put us in the green and my bro will be adding to his total today so whatever you’re able to contribute will help and if you can’t, that’s cool too. Going to get on now.

That’s fine man, don’t think easy gamerscore will do much for us at this stage so probably stick with Doom. Is it any good? I’m plying away at new game pass releases while the ratios are high.

Don't forget playing new stuff will result in decay next week! I didn't realise I hadn't put the Windows 10 version of Minesweeper on my card yet, so booted that up and unlocked 600G straight away. Every little helps!

Anyone have any mobile versions of Minecraft to do? We could pretty much survive on one of those alone.

It’s very good but a bit of a collectathon for some of the achievements. Probably about twenty hours for the bulk of them, then a further ten to mop up everything and get the stupid Battlemode achievements with a boosting partner.

Actually the Battlemode ones are decent ratios so if we make it to next week and you grab Doom, let me know and we can maybe double up on those achievements.

We can only use the bonus up to eight hours before the cut off so that’s 6am. It’s only 1000 points but I reckon we still need close to 2k to survive. Should we use it?

Yeah definitely, kids are back at school next week so I'll be back on it. No point bowing out without using the bonus.

Ok, done. We’re back in the green. Is there an easy way to see how many gs as a team we’ve unlocked this week? I have some silly easy games I can fire off to help us get the bonus too.

Not that I can see unfortunately. I'm happy to sit and work out how many I've popped though.

EDIT - 1855G

Just over 1,000 for me. I should have a couple of hours this morning to try and pull that up a little.

Don't think we've actually got a thread for the game but I spent about an hour last night racing up the clock tower trying to get the Tick Tock achievement on Human Fall Flat. Had another go this morning and got it on my third attempt :lol: Quite proud of that shortcut.



Not proud of that misspelling of "acheivement", though :slol:

That would be great dude. I added a hundred or so points this morning to take us a bit further above the line but still precarious based on the sheer number of teams being eliminated. I might not get a chance to add any more as I’m taking up the living room carpet :lol:

I have 200G and around 400TA difference loaded. I wanted to boot up Cricket 19 for some easy ones but my install didn't start from the mobile and it's taking ages.

I didn't manage to get much, only about 30G/100TA. I'll be downloading the Doom: Eternal DLC for next week's run though, for some reason DLC is always skewed to higher TA amounts but the achievements don't look that tough at all. 1,211TA for 250G as it stands, and about three or four hours work.

If anyone wants a ludicrously easy high ratio completion by the way, Zaccaria Pinball is a great option. Game is a free download, you'll need to buy the Remake Pack 1 for £1.69 which makes all the achievements simple.

Thanks for the tip dude, I had some spare Microsoft rewards credit so picked that one up

Just scanned in 250 extra points or so to take us 30 places clear of the drop with 37 minutes to go. Hopefully that should be enough, nearly got caught out with the cutoff time moving forward by an hour

I had 800/1000 from the free table anyway but some of them were very tricky. Had a look to get those last two and they've added the remake pack relatively recently, so it was an easy finish. Previously you needed to spend like £8 on a pack, which I wasn't couldn't really justify.

We look a fair way off elimination now so I won't scan mine in. Give us a kickstart for next week.

Just made a start on Doom: Eternal's DLC so that should be a fairly easy 1,200TA for the night.

Is it worth us posting all the games we need multiplayer achievements from in here? They tend to be a slightly higher TA and if we can boost a load of them out we can double up our scores, basically.

Also, this week's bonus is a load of rubbish, by my reckoning we'll go out if we go for it?
