I don't understand.  Previous "unique" achievements were obtained when receiving the aircraft.  Now you're saying we need to complete a marathon, receive the aircraft, and then after a server update to remove the marathon, run another mission to get the appropriate achievement? :amazed:

 

 

Is this related to data corruption on the web backend?  A month ago I put a support ticket in (143048388) and was asked to be patient for a reply.  A simple, "yes, we are aware", or  a "hey, that's new!" response would be great.

 

 

Thank you.

 

P.S.  Can someone also update the descriptor for the 2017 Season's Award when they get a chance?

I'm very happy to run 1 mission to get a nice badge.

 

It's a shame they didn't give badges for planes like the Potez and other planes we had to complete a series of missions for in the past.

You're right.  The Devil's in the details.  The Junkers and the Skua events don't show the achievement after completing the missions.  The P-38L however does.  I'm still not clear on the differentiation/reasoning?  Perhaps anything below 25 missions doesn't get an achievement, and now they're trying out a new mission requirement to receive a new achievement?  Will this show up under the above section with the others?

Not entirely sure what the criteria is.

I remember getting the F5F and the Goose on the EU server in similar events but only got the badge for the Goose.

Another one comes to mind is the Yak 7 M82 which had loads of missions but no badge either.

as a total aside to the LM's punk and pink.

 

you two gave Cap_HG and I a pair of tough games a day or three back, despite being downtiered to our Flight.  Serious respect, and we're waiting for the purse-smacks and umbrella pokes to heal up. 

 

:honoring:

I'm off to France with my family so I won't be around for a few weeks.

I think the rest of the motley crew are staying though so i'm sure you'll see them or fly with them.

Have a great holiday!

The reason you need to fly a battle to get the achievement if you own the Ju 87 D-5 is because the achievement wasn't in the game client at the time we held the marathon. It required an update which came out today, so now you will be able to receive it.

That makes entirely too much sense.
