Actually, it is that hard to get, for the PVP events in particular. Feeding and Fort are easier, with an established Atlas team, because the team can stock modest amounts of resources in their castles and then dump larger values to help individual players reach those milestones. Breeding is difficult because each person is gated behind their own breeding path. People breeding anything below Gold are certainly not likely to hit the required mark, and those breeding Gold or Platinum are looking at completing multiple dragons to hit it. Once in Sapphire, a single complete breed for around 140k tokens will hit the mark (I think), but that’s still 140k tokens from 40 people. That’s a challenging number to hit for many F2P and E2P people in lower leagues.
But the only way to hit the 1200 mark in PvP is if 40 players on the team have sufficient energy packs and inner fires, and are able to maximize their points per attack. It takes a lot of dedication and communication, which is something that many teams simply lack when it comes to pay-to-win events like PvP.
I’ve been in very active teams in both Plat and Sapphire, and I think I’ve only seen that achievement hit a couple of times during PvP. This event, right now, we would need 19 more people to hit that mark to make it to 40@30k; 5 of those would need to double their current score to do that.
