|Achievement Bug Thread||January-3-2014 5:48 PM PST (3 years ago)|
I am making this thread due to the number of achievement bugs posts that continually pop up. Also due to the fact that in the past, specifically on 3/29/2013, Blizzard stated that they were looking into this matter. While they did mention there was not definitive timetable on a fix there has been no further communication either and no sight of a fix.
This is the quote: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/8198640421?page=2#30
Just letting you all know that we are actively discussing this issue and what the best steps to proceed with a solution will be. Due to the nature of the issue, I can't promise any specific timetable for when we'll have a solution available, but we do have some ideas, and we will work to have this solved as soon as possible.
Thank you for the continued reports of the achievements that are broken for you, and please keep them coming. I likely won't be responding to this thread too much more, but rest assured we are still reading it.
To Blizzard I would like to say that it would be nice to get some updates on these sort of things. They are obviously not just a handful of people and so it shouldnt be just be something you toss aside never to speak to us about again. In fact a dev should be talking to the community about this very issue and how it is being fixed or the plan to fix it!
Anyway, to everyone on the forum posting. Please continue posting your bugged achievements! Below you will see I have made a list of what I gathered so far for bugged achievements and who said they had it bugged.
Please post your bugged achievements in this format:
so some people have probably wondered at some point "just how many are on this list?"
well... as fo 3/16/2014 there are at least 233 people on the list above.
keep in mind that not everyone even posts their problems with this or doesnt post it here. so this number is just a small % of the larger issue. it does show however without doubt that it is a major community issue since it cant be called just a handful of people experiencing the problem.
edit: update 3/27/2014 281 names on the list above.

I want to start by thanking Morogoth for taking the time to create this thread and gather all of this information into one place. We really appreciate it, and the effort you put into this clearly shows the passion you have for our community. I also wanted to take a few moments to provide an update to this issue, and hopefully give you all a bit of insight as to what are doing to address this.
Currently, we have some work planned to make changes to some of the underlying systems on which the Achievements feature is built and functions. These changes should provide us with the tools to resolve most (if not all) achievement-related issues by allowing achievements to be automatically and retroactively granted when the server detects that your account is missing an achievement that you have completed all of the criteria for. Unfortunately however, the changes needed to make this all work will require a patch to implement. While I cannot provide a specific date for when the necessary work will be completed and our potential solution will be in place, the current goal we have for finishing up this work is around patch 2.1.0. I want to stress that I absolutely cannot make promises about this timeline and that this could happen a bit later based on the progress made on other planned back-end changes between now and then. For now, however, that’s the plan.
We know this is something that a lot of players have been waiting on for quite some time, and as players ourselves, we sympathize with and share your frustrations. We really appreciate everyone’s patience and hope that this helps you all understand that we aren’t just sitting on our hands over this and that we want this fixed as much as you do. If I have any further information to provide, I will post it here.
