Is it too late to get the 50K badge?

Has it ever even been obtainable? I played constantly for the first week and it never got high enough. It'd really suck if we couldn't get a platinum trophy because we happened to miss the 2 events where it happened.

No event yet has reached 50k players, though EA fudged the servers for three events and got them over 50k. So there's a lot of people that have the badge, but nobody that got it from an event that really did have 50k players.

Damn, they should just release a patch to give it to all of us. I hate something I can't control preventing me from getting a trophy. Especially something as ambitious as that.

I too am very angry about this.

I mean in theory you can say it's my fault for not playing every day and constantly checking the global events, but c'mon man, having to do that is pretty insane.

You don't have to check every day. It the 2wk ones that you would search for. Though this is dumb. The patch should lower the number to 1k(b), 5k(s), 10k(g)

Even those numbers will be ridiculous 6 months from now!

I'm not in favor of any trophy that requires more than a handful of fellow online participants to achieve. Even then, I've seen some that required 2 dozen or less online participants that were still effectively impossible to achieve. Granted, the primary one I'm thinking of required 24 players simultaneously to achieve, but still, only a very small number of people ever got that trophy. And that too was an EA game.

Well, I did at least one event that had over 50k (or EA bumped up the numbers artificially), and I never got the badge for it.

Blah.

Note: To get this badge, you have to participate in a 50,000 rider event when the number is at or higher than 50,000. If you entered earlier when it was under 50,000, then you'd have to enter it again when it goes over.

A friend of mine found that out the hard way.

I'm sure there's going to be another opportunity as I recall seeing an event hit 27,000 a short while ago (bout a week or so ago). They just need to choose a popular drop that people like (Serenity, for example) and make the pot well worth playing in.

I'm pretty sure EA is overestimating it's own popularity in even deciding to create such a trophy. It's a little egotistical, if you ask me.

Maaaaaaaaaaan, EA sucks. I haven't played this game in probably two months.
