it seems this achievement may be glitched. I have the award in game but not an actual xbox achievement.

The simplest way to do this is go to arena and make sure the enemies are in a group and pop you're ult which you get at Level 5 in game.

People with high cc ult's like xing tian and ares for example make this easier to do.
THE DEADLY DOGI can confirm it is glitched. In game award unlocks but no achievement.

Moat CarpWorst developer? Not sure about that. They're pretty good about getting patches out and fixing problems.

JakeWuzHereYoIt's because we got the in game awards before the achievements were added to the game... We made the mistake of getting these done super early lol
Posted by JakeWuzHereYo on 17 Feb 16 at 08:18
ReptarOnIce3000Well, sadly, even if you get the award after the achievements were added you don't get the achievement either :/ so no matter what, everyone's a loser! :D

fez34yeah its glitched
Posted by fez34 on 17 Feb 16 at 21:02
UnsanctifyYup its glitched for me too.
Posted by Unsanctify on 18 Feb 16 at 06:16
TEK5c Reginald@jakewuzhereyo I don't think so. I was able to get the other 5 from this update no problem.
Posted by TEK5c Reginald on 18 Feb 16 at 07:47
MrsGreyOwl97193Same here. I literally unlocked it and Water Rises in the same match. Surprisingly I received the water rising achievement but not Release the Kraken. I even emailed HiRez and after filling out that it was for Xbox they asked if I was playing on Steam...seriously???
Posted by MrsGreyOwl97193 on 19 Feb 16 at 23:06
WeedDoct0rStill bugged today.
Posted by WeedDoct0r on 21 Feb 16 at 18:23
ParticleDualityGuys, calm down, it will unlock retroactively when they fix it. They've only had like 2-3 achievements that have done this in Smite and they've always fixed them with the next patch.
Posted by ParticleDuality on 21 Feb 16 at 22:37
Lady TrediciIT's glitched but as Pride said, they always fix it with the next patch which is coming out within the next 2 weeks. The same happened to me. I got Cleanup Crew and water rises then got the in game for Kraken. It will come be patient.

Because Im RyanMy response from Hi-rez on their forums,

"It has an issue with it, we mis-configured something in live so it is not working.

We believe we have a fix for it that we will look to push out on Monday/Tuesday next week.
Sorry for the inconvenience." And that was on the 19th. So soon it should be good to go, hopefully. smile
Posted by Because Im Ryan on 28 Feb 16 at 13:58
ParticleDualityYes, it will happen this Monday/Tuesday with the Season 3 patch. They always fix it in the next patch.
Posted by ParticleDuality on 28 Feb 16 at 18:27
LavindatharInstead of popping mine when to 100% locked. Sigh
Posted by Lavindathar on 02 Mar 16 at 15:51
Treivon100% locked. Kill me.
Posted by Treivon on 02 Mar 16 at 18:16
TEK5c ReginaldSeems to be fixed. 3 people have unlocked it today after the patch came out.
Posted by TEK5c Reginald on 02 Mar 16 at 18:44
Because Im Ryan100% locked, too. Maybe I just have to play as Posi and do it again. It's not very hard at least.
Posted by Because Im Ryan on 02 Mar 16 at 19:41
BaronVoNewmanDone unlocking for me. AGONY MAN.
Posted by BaronVoNewman on 02 Mar 16 at 20:35
LavindatharI redid it and that doesn't change anything. If it's 100% locked it'll unlock in a few weeks. Maybe,
Posted by Lavindathar on 02 Mar 16 at 21:46
Slayer ReigningDone unlocking for me.
Posted by Slayer Reigning on 03 Mar 16 at 00:38
Dmorpher5Mine is stuck at 100%. Am I just going to have to wait till it randomly pops?
Posted by Dmorpher5 on 03 Mar 16 at 15:58
HicksterMy Kraken still remains in captivity. Has anyone who has unlocked this met the requirements before the most recent update?
Posted by Hickster on 03 Mar 16 at 20:13
PlacidoPaltiProI actually just unlocked it, hit 3 people and no problem. Played arena and just attempted my ult every time the enemy grouped up
Posted by PlacidoPaltiPro on 03 Mar 16 at 23:10
TEK5c Reginald@PlacidoPaltiPro Did you ever get the in-game award for this achievement before the last update?
Posted by TEK5c Reginald on 06 Mar 16 at 12:19
Moat CarpIt looks like he didn't attempt it until after the Season 3 patch was released.
Posted by Moat Carp on 06 Mar 16 at 16:50
Slam Shot SamIt shows as 100% locked for me. This has happened plenty before, it should just be a case of waiting for it to pop.
Posted by Slam Shot Sam on 07 Mar 16 at 13:27
shockfire3DGI have gotten 5 of the 6 achievements in this patch (both xing tian ones, both poseidon ones, and let's hug khepri) but they have been "done... unlocking" for several weeks now. Does anyone else have this problem? I can still get achievements from other patches.
Posted by shockfire3DG on 09 Mar 16 at 00:13
Nimr0d87I've had quite a few problems with "Done! Unlocking..."-achievements recently that haven't unlocked until I redid the requirements... Trouble with this is one is that it's quite hard to make out if you actually hit 3 enemy gods with it when you already have the in game award unlocked but not the cheevo... Has anyone who done this pre-patch managed to unlock it yet? Last one I need for this patch...
Posted by Nimr0d87 on 09 Mar 16 at 17:24
shockfire3DGI've redone the requirements plenty of times but still nothing unlocks
Posted by shockfire3DG on 10 Mar 16 at 01:49
PangoBaraYou can't unlock this by redoing it I don't think. I've done it multiple times. It just stayed at Done... Unlocking
Posted by PangoBara on 10 Mar 16 at 04:29
Xc Livewire cXmine has said Done.... Unlocking since the update, I hope this actually gets fixed some day...
Posted by Xc Livewire cX on 12 Mar 16 at 16:15
KBop a dooNah, you definitely can't get it to unlock by redoing the requirements. I've done it several times. Hi-Rez has said the achievements are tied to the in-game award, so unless you can get the in-game award to pop again, it's not gonna happen.

Hoping this unlocks soon, mine has been "Done... Unlocking" since the patch.
Posted by KBop a doo on 12 Mar 16 at 18:11
shockfire3DGThis morning I checked my achievements and all the stuck ones were set back to 0%, so I'm going to try to get them again
Posted by shockfire3DG on 13 Mar 16 at 03:07
grubbEMine dropped as well but I still have the reward. Am I screwed?
Posted by grubbE on 13 Mar 16 at 23:26
GremlinLord615I got this achievement for the first time on 3/13/2016 and it unlocked. Hopefully this means it will be fixed for you all.
Posted by GremlinLord615 on 14 Mar 16 at 09:22
PlacidoPaltiProTEK5c Reginald, I did not recieve the award before the update only after as far as I know.
Posted by PlacidoPaltiPro on 15 Mar 16 at 23:20
shockfire3DGWelp, the achievements that got reset are all back at 100% again
Posted by shockfire3DG on 15 Mar 16 at 23:37
HicksterStill stuck at done unlocking after this latest update cry
Posted by Hickster on 17 Mar 16 at 05:04
Dmorpher5It's still locked for me! Should I just give up on getting the god achievements in pairs? I have been refraining from doing anything for so long. I just don't know
Posted by Dmorpher5 on 18 Mar 16 at 00:31
xxHANCHOxxhow 635 people have this blows my mind. hit 3 or 4 five man krackens in one game. wish they would fix this pos achievement.
Posted by xxHANCHOxx on 18 Mar 16 at 11:16
JohnnyInterfnkIf its says "Done! Unlocking..." isn't that a Microsoft end problem? Anyone contact them yet? (Edit: did just that an hour ago)
Posted by JohnnyInterfnk on 18 Mar 16 at 18:44
shockfire3DGI've contacted HiRez, and they said that they were aware of it and that they couldn't do anything about it, but Microsoft had been working on the issue for about a month.
Posted by shockfire3DG on 20 Mar 16 at 15:33
LizardKingLXXXIUpdate on mine, I got this day 1 & mine still says Done, Unlocking. It did change for a few days to Locked & 0% but now back to 100% Done, Unlocking. I have contacted Microsoft & followed their sticky here: - I suggest we all fill in the survey feedback at the bottom, more of us do this the better. Fingers crossed facepalm
Posted by LizardKingLXXXI on 20 Mar 16 at 23:37
DarkevnessAlmost 1360 got it now...mine is still glitched though.
I've tried doing it again, didn't work out.

So let's hope that microsoft survey will help unlocking it for good.

Posted by Dmorpher5 on 12 Apr 16 at 13:34
BloodDiamond174Even after the latest update, the achievement is still 100% unlocking for me. I have the in game Award though, i wonder if Hi-Rez can managed this somehow

YawpedWhat a bitch of an achievement, still glitched after several patches
Posted by Yawped on 27 Apr 16 at 11:56
ParticleDualityJust because they patch the game doesn't mean that they patch everything that's broken. Keep tweeting, emailing, and posting on the forums. If it gets enough visibility then they'll at least respond to us even if they don't fix it.
Posted by ParticleDuality on 28 Apr 16 at 23:36
Because Im RyanMy W10 PC just notified me that it unlocked (I did the requirements on Feb 17th) but even after an update on TA it still says locked. Will check my X1 later, too! Finally fixed for me at least?

DizyneMine just unlocked after not playing the game for 5 days while watching several hours of survivor on Amazon Prime TV. Interesting but still, about damn time
Posted by Dizyne on 08 May 16 at 17:07
Xc Livewire cXMy achievement just unlocked randomly while playing Battle Ages. Not sure if it's just coincidence but yesterday was the first day that I hadn't logged into Smite in about 4 months, good luck all...

JohnnyInterfnkI credit the power of Dark Souls III. PRAISE THE SUN! (Also, we should take up a collection for the intern who had to fix it on a Sunday...)
Posted by JohnnyInterfnk on 08 May 16 at 18:35
Nimr0d87Mine unlocked too, even though I didn't see it. I also got 4 of my "Done! Unlocking..."-achievements in Lords of the Fallen too, but these popped up when I played Gears of War Judgment.
