Really?! That's the best they could come up with. It's like they're trying to discourage you from holding this game in high appraisal.

And what's with that last one, 75 points?! Seriously 2.0 is only worth 50! Could they not come up with another 2 to make them 25 each? Sheesh.

(FWIW, I think there's quite an artistry in good Achievement design...)

But they totally named an achievement "Freebaird."  I thought it was clever!

Wait. Are these real? And if so, when do they come into effect?

You can't be creative with this sort of thing.  The second those guys make creative multiplayer stuff is the second they double the number of already too many assholes glitching matches for the points.

'tis! Seems their original 'Achievements team' wasn't behind these new ones.
btw, these are listed on xbox.com, but won't be available until 'the patch'.

Yeah, some title update will be applied soon. I don't care much for the achievements here, but I will try to get some considering their is a 75 pointer. Cool.

Very seldomly. If I have 4 mates in a party, playing during prime time (in Australia) I'll jump in. 

But if this patch (damn you RHCPfan24, don't you dare give in to marketing speak, it's a damn PATCH), doesn't fix the game properly, ie A FRIGGIN REGION FILTER, it'll be all but good night for me.
