I'm so going to get my "!" tabard + my Hallowed title together!

Hm, let's add titles up!

I made it into RFC without so much as a horde looking twice at me.

I think its a fun way to pass time tbh. Nothing to do? Polish explorations, get some titles.

For the 13th time, no one here is making you care about achievements. No one here is responsible for a guild using them in an asinine way they weren't intended for. If you don't like them, ignore them.

I'm having fun with the achievements, honestly.

I did the fishing diplomat one...four hordes were fishing in the same pool, and no one seemed to care, no alarms raised or anything.

Now I just have to fish up Old Crafty...

That's a great way to find guilds to avoid.

Really I have to wonder if the original poster just wants to complain to complain.
This is why I'm a humorless feminist. Because rape jokes killed my sense of humor.

Even though i like the achievements and kinda think its refreshing for an old game i dont find funny at all being in a guild in SWP and dont get credit for Hyjal (and there is no way my guild is going back for it) even though we killed Archimonde several times...
And getting an answer of a Blizz GM "...well you can always go back at lvl 80..." /sigh
Blizz should have waited or worked more on the achievements before going live, they did it only to counter Warhammer when they obviously have problems with the system.

"Working on it more" wouldn't have solved your situation. Blizzard didn't have any reason to record Archimonde kills before the achievement system, so there's no way they could know that you've killed him unless you have loot that drops from him. It's an inevitable transition issue.

Warhammer is not the only game that has a similar system so using this argument is cheap and fairly weak.

It isn't perfect, but they at least tried to give people some of their previously rewarded achievements.
