What's the deal with this one-sided achievement? About half of the clips in the top 20 have been left there by game testers (you can tell by the dates). The most downloaded clip has over 2000 downloads. The least downloaded clip has around 85 downloads. What the fuck?! How the hell is anyone supposed to have a sporting chance at getting in the top 20?
People keep downloading the clips in the top 20: further decreasing everyone's chance of getting in there. There is no option to view all clips available. As far as I can tell, the only ways you can download a clip is from the top 20, from someone in your friendlist, or if someone recommends you his/her clip (message sent to you). The only way to gain exposure for people to download your clip is to recommend it to your friends or to people you've raced with. It's ultimately up to them if they view the clip.
It seems the only way you'll get in the top 20 is if you're already there. How fucked up is that? So, because I didn't upload a clip within the first hour this was released I can never earn this achievement?
At least with PGR3's Online Pro achievement, it's fair because no one has it. Good goin', Criterion. They didn't even have the decency to wipe the boards clean for BR's launch.
P.S. Online's an absolute blast. I got home today and found that I was bumped all the way down to 3300-something in the world rank. I raced and won one ten-race, Road Rage race, and I was skyrocketed up to 88. Beautiful.
