No achievements have unlocked for me and I have completed 3 or 4. I have tried on two different Xboxs (S and X) and still no luck.

I popped one this morning (presumably before the server issues started) and have tried several of them a few times over since with no luck. Hopefully this is fixed quickly.

Achievements have been down since they turned the servers off for new players.

No achievements been unlocked since 2230 or so.

I sure hope so, but I wouldn't count on it. I have been in the same situation with a few other games and have had to redo achievements in the past.

How would we unlock the promotion ones again?

Me, my girlfriend and 2 friends played for 4 hours last night and I unlocked the vomit achievement within the first 2 minutes of playing (They didn't get anything) and from then on none of us unlocked any achievements for the rest of the night - I know for a fact we did the requirements for at least 6 or 7 achievements but nothing has unlocked.

Checked again this morning and still nothing unlocking. I'm hoping once the server issues are fixed they'll be retroactive or at least will pop when intended - Some games have a bad habit of marking the criteria as met for the achievement to unlock even if it hasn't awarded the achievement which means when you re-do certain achievements they still won't pop as the criteria has already been filled previously.

We will see :) I'll stay optimistic.

I hope thy solve this because I will be really ticked off if I have to redo these achievements. We got the 20 chest achievement done last night, it ticked for everyone but me.

Also if it bugs out and makes the achievements you have already earned unobtainable then I will take it to support. I had this with Elder Scrolls Online back in the day. Rare, fix your game!

I reckon once the server issues are sorted the achievements will pop. That or you'll just randomly get the achievement notification in the middle of something totally unrelated 20 hours of play later in a group.

I have been unlocking achievements randomly. It is like they are delayed. I will get one then, not pop. Then four hours later, achievement.

They are just really glitched.

I only got the eat the banana achievement two seconds into the game, I've probably earned around 10-15 achievements but nothing has popped since the banana. Played a good eight hours yesterday, and logged on this morning and still nothing. Hopefully it is all fixed soon

Cool video, except I don’t think many people are popping them after the fact as a delay, only if stuff gets redone.

A million unique players in the first 48 hours. shock I wonder how many will never come back?

No mention of compensation though. I play a bit of Gems of Wars and regularly get compensation for issues I never even knew existed, that's good customer service.

They better still be tracking this in game cause I want my achievement for launching myself from a cannon on to another boat deck.
