It's been a little while since I've played Gears of War 2. When I jumped into some Horde mode over the weekend, I was treated to a title update. It also turns out that it was Double XP Weekend and since they added experience points to Horde, I was in luck. What WASN'T lucky was when all of my Achievement progress was wiped clean.
Now, my Achievements are still there, but progress on the ones I was still working on was set to zero. This includes the "Seriously 2.0" big one that awards you for getting 100,000 kills. Granted, I wasn't close to getting this one yet but I was several thousand into it and now I'm at about 25. I went to Epic's website and read that this was a bug that happens if you sign in during a load screen. I've never heard of this until it happened to me AFTER it was supposedly fixed.
Will I stop playing Gears in some sort of rage-induced boycott? Nah.
Was I about to get the Seriously Achievement anytime within the next few years? Probably not.
Will I ever see my cool running total of carnage for that game again? NO!!
So thank you Epic.That'll learn me for signing on during a load screen.
