Achievements Still Bugged
With the release of patch 1.1 I was hoping that the whole achievement thing would get fixed but unfortunately that is not the case. I even tried playing Hardcore mode to see maybe that would somehow help with unlocking the missing achievements from Normal mode. I'm still 20 achievements short (the Hardcore mode ones seem to be unlocking just fine). It's been almost 2 months since release and this bug is still around.

Same problem.

I have the same issue. I think the problem is achievements were 'locked' during the beta period and the game code doesn't account for players who have progressed past where the achievement should unlock.

Have a look at these achievements (scroll all the way down):

The game seems to be (wrongly) assuming that they are unlocked and not firing the event to unlock the achievements.

It's likely what ^ said. The game sees us "in game" as having unlocked it and so skips the check or authentication to Steam server to unlock it there. Wish that were fixed =/ I logged in so quickly to hope it would >_<

i would really like to see this fixed as well, i dont appreciate it killing my average completion rate and being punished because i bought the beta. If they cant fix it then they should be taking them off steam

I know this isn't the point but I really don't understand people and their need for achievements, most of them are either to easy or extremely grindy way to inflate a games longevity. set your own goals, meet them, voila!

its more about the fact that a component of what we bought isnt functioning properly, hence we would like it fixed. as i stated, if they cant fix it id be fine with them removing it. ill admit a well earned achievement feels great but i dont care for the idea of a product/system setting a bad example.

i dont blame the devs, but i dont think it should just be left alone either

I just noticed myself that I have an achievement ingame that didn't unlock on steam. So apparently the bug is still there. I would very much appreciate it if it could be added in the next patch.

Perhaps a 'simple' routine to re-award all the achievements you already have to steam each time you start or close the program like many other games seem to have. That way even if it doesn't trigger for some reason during gameplay (perhaps because the connection in lost for a few mins) would still register on steam the next time you start the program.

Just earned all achieves in this game, download the beta and play the missions which have bugged achievements to earn the awards needed. Then exit,opt out of beta and go into the game again and it should unlock. Some achieves are unlocked in steam even if there is no pop up.

Thanks for the suggestion Kirinfable, but I've been playing the beta for a while too now. The trouble is the achievements that are earned ingame but not on steam like I said in my post. They don't unlock anymore, whatever I tried, switching back and forth between the beta and the regular game. And I'd hate to reset my profile for this and loose all the towers that took me 50+ hours to get, just for another chance on a single achievement that didn't unlock. So I much rather prefer a fix like that 'check and re-award' on start I mentioned or perhaps even something simpler like the ability to reset a single achievement, so I can redo that mission until it unlocks properly.

It seems to be completely random as to what achievements do and do not unlock properly.
For instance; I just reached character lvl 15 and while the ingame reward for reaching lvl 15 did pop, the accompanying Steam achievement did not.

This really needs a revisit by the devs. As it stands, with an existing fix that is obviously sloppy and only half-working, achievement related issues will only continue to pile on to form more and more of a mess. This really needs to be fixed ASAP.

Quite frankly; juggling with beta opt-in / opt-out is *not* a fix in even the least bit of sense. It's merely a coincidental *fluke* that it somehow nudges achievements back into shape and it doesn't seem to work well for everyone either.

Yeah, my Blitzkrieg III Achievement is stuck on 296/300 since ages.
I would really like a fix :\.
Ingame I have 45 unlocked, 33 in Steam.

Dear necromancers, this bug has been around ever since they released the game so my advice to you nice people is uninstall and move on. They obviously don't care enough to fix the issue or they lack the technical skills to do so, either way, stating that the issue was fixed and blaming Steam is insulting to us, the customers.
