8 hours straight... it's funny how they've created such a good way to get people to play games

What would happen if you did the whole leaving it going while you sleep trick. and you used wireless controllers?
Would the controllers turn off due to inactivity and give you that gay" please reconnect the ocntroller" stuff,
and would that effect getting the achievment?

i didnt think about that, but i supose you are right, then will turn them selves off after a period of time. but as to whether that disrupts the game...i doubt it will. you obviously cant pause a mutiplayer game, so ip probably wont make any difference.

you know there is one way to test....go online, and in the lobby, just turn off your controller or something. see what happens

cheers

The 1000 games hosted achievement is a broken achievement.

You need to be playing the game for the time to build up and reach the eight hour point.

Alright, I just read this and thought you guys are morons. I like the idea for getting the 8 straight hours. but the hosting 1000 matches is a lot easier. Place the game type to co-op territory and the lobby to auto start in 30 seconds. The computer will get to the base and kill you before 5 minutes and then you will start a new match. It's simple people.

where exactly does that make us morons? it's two different achievements completely...the point of the thread was for the 8 hours straight, going towards 1000 matches was just an additional bonus to the actual objective, not to mention it was already stated it was a broken achievement...don't thread crap calling people morons when you are too slow to even understand the point to the thread.

if it did work then neither achievement is "easier." both achievements require zero to no input from you at all while you are sleeping. if anything the 8 hrs is easier because you will reach that MUCH MUCH faster than 1000 games (again, if it worked).

Yeah I left my GRAW on System Link with 2 controllers and set it for 30 second auto launch and 60 min games. I woke up the next morning and i had the achievement. So No you don't have to be on Live. Just in Multiplayer. MY question is, when you go to the main menu in GRAW where it says Campaign or Multiplayer, what if you just leave it in the multiplayer menu for 8 hours, would that consititute you being in Multiplayer for 8 striaght hours. I think it might work.
