Does someone have these yet?

I can't imagine nobody destroyed 10 Harvesters yet. Are they broken? Can someone confirm?

    These are all in a single round. They're pretty hard, but I'm glad they are.

    It displays percentage under 0.1% just as 0%. Some of these achievments are counting per round and not in general.

    So Brock just clarified that those statistics on the Global Gameplay Stats are counting every single copy of ns2 sold ever (which is 1.6million+ copies) - so seeing that .1% or even 0% does not necessarily mean no one is getting them... we're going to wait another week or two before reviewing / adjusting them. Thank you as always for the feedback, we're keeping an eye on it.

    Do you have to assist in killing 15 harvesters in a round, or actually be the one who deals the finishing blow?
    Because that's a poor game of chance, and not really an achievement if it relies on being the finisher.

    Every time you ask for troubleshooting without providing system info, ATI adds a rendering bug for an upcoming game.

    Ah, okay. Thanks for the clarification. Maybe that should be put in the description?

    It should mention the 'in 1 round'. Some show it apparently.

    Being the finisher 15 times seems unlikely.

    Frankly, I can't imagine the kind of game where a single marine would get to kill 15 Harvesters - it would require to be a) long and b) that literally no ones pushes RTs. Sounds very frustrating :D
    (Also I can't imagine that aliens would survive long enough that a single marine gets to kill 15 Harvesters, since, you know, they are losing a ton of harvesters)

    Yes, I'm ok with 15 extractors on skulk, but for the marine it just doesn't happen.

    15 harvester kills for a marine is so unlikely, so you have to try and not win. You cant lose either, because then the game will finish before you can get it. But you cant kill the harvesters too fast because then you just outright win. This achievement is stupid, and i dont know how you can ever see 15 harvesters = 15 extractors.......

    This achievement either needs to be lowered slightly or spread it across more than just one round

    15 harvesters totally sounds like an achievment even if just "witnessed" :smirk:

    Can you please describe the game where you killed 15 harvesters? I can't even imagine it.

    You just tunnel that objective. Took a few tries, because if you go for RTs from the getgo you kinda make the aliens want to quit the game. Best map is mineshaft, huge map, aliens get tons of RTs, normally goes to onos and stuff. Wait a few minutes then just focus on killing RTs and nothing else.

    Edit: Same thing with defending a harvest/RT. get a game going then just sit by an extractor. Something to note, aliens have to bite the extractor, and you have to be close to the resource node.

    You're welcome.

    Uh, you know that that is exactly his point right? Only 1% of total sales are still playing. Rant's reply was more regarding difficulty levels.

    Also, I'm amazed at all of you who didn't look at that and figure that out straight away, needing McGlaspie to clarify for you guys. What else did you think? People can't complete a round in either faction?

    I did think of this right from the beginning, I just steam rounds up to 0.1% if _someone_ has the achievement.

    It doesn't round up to 0.1% from 0.0% if just one person has the achievement. I checked this with someone who cheated the achievements to get them. They had all of them, but they show 0.0% still for the harder to believe achievements. I don't know what the cutoff is, but 0.05% is a good guess.
