Yes, this is a very important announcement. Look what finally popped:
Now I know what you’re thinking. “And what? Woop-dee-doo! Big deal. Do you want a medal?”. Well first of all, yes I do want a medal. But I’m making this thread out of the sheer torment this has brought on loved ones. I have a daughter, 3 today (yes, perfect timing for the achievement), and a son, 5 weeks old yesterday.
So basically I’ve had little to no free time for the whole of Gears 5 when you combine it with a job. Anyway, my absolute COMMITMENT to the dailies and specifically CXP caused many an argument and even made me get up an hour earlier than usual for work, 5am. I’m not a morning person .
But I digress, I’m rambling on. This should’ve unlocked a month ago, perfectly and luckily timed before my son was born but it was stuck at 99% despite meeting all requirements. Yes I done all the resets but no luck. So I managed to do every map Wave 50-only, mostly whilst holding a newborn, and mastered some Hives. Today I did Jingle Juvies on Blood Drive and Allfather’s Arena and upon resetting it popped .
After I done a mediocre backflip I figured I’d share my pain.
And without further ado, I can’t make a thread without mentioning those that thankfully took the time to help me out:
First and foremost, a massive thanks @GhostofDelta2 - My main compadre. You’ll be forever a great friend and legend for the endless time you contributed to me almost daily for the dailies as well as general Frenzy runs, Escape Hives, MULTIPLE Surge runs and the odd Versus match . The banter and laughs along the way certainly eased the pain of the godawful randoms my lobbies attract!
Now the rest of you who helped either actuall in-game on even here on the forums by listing the dailies (which was helpful):
(Forum limitations allow me to mention 10 users only, I’ll continue the list in responses.)
Virtual drinks on me!
Have a good one
