Before anyone asks Smile, this is just a post for myself to keep track of my progress. This week I'm aiming to get the Best week ever II badge.

5,000 GS starting point.
1,355 GS won.
GS left: 3,645

1,745 GS won. (Might increase slightly because of WP games progress.)
GS left: 1,900

August 16th:
1,900 GS starting point
825 GS won. (Everyday life decided to interfere Frown. Very little time to get any gaming done.)
GS left 1,075

August 17th:

1,065 GS left

I got it all planned in a spreadsheet including contingency plans Smile
Good luck, I managed to get it last week with: The Fall, Cubot, Ben Hur, Fire: Ungh's Quest (Win10), and a combo of The Walking Dead & Game of Thrones.

Today was more structured: #IDARB, Fire Unghs quest, mopping up on Active Soccer and Whispering Willows.
Tomorrow will mainly feature King's Quest and more mopping up on miscellaneous achievements.
Good luck on this I've been planning for Best Week Ever IV for a while now and find myself less than 1000 short with easy/ quick gamerscore so I will wait longer.

Also the get 42 points exactly, and the stun opponents 25 times in online play won't unlock.
I really hope the Live issues aren't going to screw me over tomorrow. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

If it is Xbox One, usually after all the issues work themselves out, you get all of your achievements with the appropriate time stamps, which will update your information here, which will qualify you for the badge (possibly requiring manual intervention, but, you would still get it).

I don't remember exactly, but I think I got it using the developers Twitch stream
Adding nothing constructive to a thread near you

What exactly is the point of this thread?

#idarbwire #'code' #achievement

After you've done that the 'bot' should give you the achievement (after a while of course because I'm not the only player worldwideSmile )

So I think I got a pretty good idea of how the achievement should work, but unfortunately it just doesn't work. Also I'm not the only one. If you look at the number of comments on TA from all the people it glitched on... Even twitch is no sure way to get this if you can believe the comments. The achievement has even unlocked for people who used neither option. So it's more a luck based achievement than one you get by meeting the requirements.
Did you get over the air yet? I just tried and got it took a little time but not too long and tried 3 variations of #achievement but it worked.

426 more than I needed with 1 day to go (won't be at home so probably no GS).

Now I only have to wait for the badge to unlock Smile
