Golden Potato Achievement No Longer Obtainable?

Back during the ARG, I never managed to get into the room (though I didn't try too hard). Now, I managed to get in 5 times and still do not have the achievement. I have even tried hitting E everywhere in the room. Is it no longer possible to get the golden potato achievement?

Yep, can't get it anymore since the last update. (or was it the one before that?)

Yeah, it really sucks. I was only able to even try a couple of times since it was so hard to get a group together. Even with the steam group to help out, my schedule rarely meshed with that of other players. If only it had been just a little lower than 70,000.

Thank all the morons that raged about all the Glados stuff and demanded it be removed. They simply couldn't live another day otherwise.

I got it playing solo using the fake player mutator. Had 900 zeds each round. Took about 5 rounds till I had enough for the potato. And then opening the Apeture room was just as easy. Solo as a Support Specialist to get extra weld / unweld speed. Took about 4 or 5 rounds to open the door.

You could have gotten these achievements solo.

i would have thought TWI would have learned that people don't like not being able to get things while still being able to see them, but i can deal.

I just find it odd that the map is still there, the room is still there, the welding is still there to be undone, and all other elements to achieve the achievement are still there, but it can't be obtained.

I know. As I said, I didn't really feel like trying for the achievement when it was obtainable, and that now that I bothered doing the work, I was left unrewarded. And yes, I did open the door solo on an online game, just not during the time period that it was worth something.

As for the Uber Tuber achievement, it no longer shows up in the shops and is therefore obviously non-obtainable and I wish people would stop talking about it as I never mentioned it 'til this post.

Before updates I tried to get in the room in SOLO but that didn't work. It only works in MP

-To clear up some confusion: if you went to play in "SOLO MODE" that would not work.

-But if you played online ALONE then it would work.

-I kept the wiki up-to-date for people to use.

-Also, if you guys are curious, this is an article by TWI saying what they did in the ARG.
