Some of my space achievements keep "updating" they first completed April 14th and now the date keeps changing to whatever the current date is...

I have this bug, but different from what I see people describing.

Basically, out of nowhere today when I was playing, I suddenly got a load of old achievements put back in my tracker! These are completed achievements (I can see them completed if I open up the achievements), but on the tracker it has them as unfinished.

Basically, it has kept the 2 I was tracking, and then it's like it has reached back to a screenshot of the ones I was tracking on a particular day about 2 months ago, that have since been completed.

It is completely nonsensical now and ctrl+u doesn't fix it.

It's really, really annoying because it's not as if it's even tracking those old achievements, it has come up with bizarre retro numbers for how far along they are.

Could we fix it please?

PS Just to say, these aren't space achievements. They are like number of colicoids killed on Balmorra etc. Like I said, I remember when I was tracking these as I finished all the achievements on Balmorra. Why I suddenly have a retro screenshot of them, I do not know!

PPS Also, I do not know if this is part of the same bug, but other people mentioned their achievements updating the date they were completed. Today I did some Voss heroics and suddenly got the Republic Hero of Voss achievement. Great, except I already got that 2 months ago! The achievement still shows the old date too. But I got the sound for completing an achievement, it came up at the top of the screen and it was shown in chat. Weird things are afoot...

Hi folks!

As many pointed out, the fix that we are implementing for Achievements being stuck in the tracker after they are completed did not make it into Game Update 2.3. However, there is a fix being implemented in Game Update 2.3.1 for the Space Combat Mastery Achievements that are stuck in the tracker for Javaal Fleet Action and Saleucami Fleet Action.

This is crazy indeed and we'll be interested to follow up with you, but it does sound different, as there are other strange things (like the progress not updating) that seem to be very different. We'll be watching this thread to gather additional updates as we investigate! Can you please tell us if you recently transferred characters or had any other activity that could point to the source of the strangeness? Did it happen after getting an Achievement, or making progress on one?

Thanks everyone.

Hi Amber! I hadn't "recently" transferred any characters - all of mine moved from Dalborra to Harbinger about 2 months ago. I don't know if because mine originated on Dalborra, they could have been affected by the server consolidation (even though they weren't there on Tuesday)?

I didn't notice exactly when the achievements suddenly reappeared in my tracker, but definitely after the last maintenance. I've had a few odd things happen to my achievement tracker before - sometimes I get the bug where all the achievements go to crazy lines of text e.g. s98743hkjshfkjt, but ctrl+u always resets that (it usually happens when logging between toons). And the character this happened on used to not display tracked achievements at all (all my other toons did).

I was on Voss at the time doing the Weekly. I have done all the heroics before (I have, and was wearing, the Galactic Hero title, so I know I wasn't confused!). But when I handed in Cyber Mercenaries, I got the Republic Hero of Voss achievement, which was very weird too. I got the sound effect, the message at the top of my screen and in chat too. I checked my achievements and I had already gotten that 2 months ago (the time and date hadn't changed). I was in a group at the time and 1 other person did (rightly) get the achievement, so I don't know if that somehow triggered mine (but we had one other person in the group who already had the achievement and didn't re-acquire it).

I'm pretty sure I got the achievement tracker bug before I got the achievement again, but both were very weird.

I didn't have much time to play with it last night, but I'll log in later on and see if this has occurred on all my toons or just that one and whether re-logging has cleared it or if it is stuck. If it is still broken, I'll grab a few screenshots too.

Again, not sure if it's related, but just in case... when I was looking at my account yesterday, I noticed I got 20cc for an achievement, but I didn't think I'd done any cc-granting achievements that day. I am wondering if somehow my achievements are reset and I am achieving things I have already achieved (even though my achievements look right when I open them up).

Oh, one other thing I remembered - when I logged in after the server consolidation, my legacy was flashing and asked me to rename my legacy (like how you have to when you have transferred). I did that, but it was still flashing. I clicked it again, then said no to changing legacy name, and it stopped flashing.

So I'm wondering if somehow I did get caught up in the server consolidation somehow. Because it's actually possible that the stuck achievements were being tracked when I originally moved from Dalborra to Harbinger. It was about two months ago, so I cannot remember exactly, but that could be it. And maybe I got Republic Hero of Voss again because I had achieved it after I transferred?

I feel like maybe I have two simultaneous legacies and achievements - when you consolidated the servers, is it possible that a copy of my legacy from Dalborra from 2 months ago before I moved was still there? So there was June!CrazyMcGee and it has now been transferred and sort of semi-merged with August!CrazyMcGee and they are operating simultaneously?

So the 20ccs I got was actually the fix for Chapter 1 Agent being applied to June!CrazyMcGee. And it was June!CrazyMcGee who got the Republic of Voss achievement? And it's June!CrazyMcGee who is tracking those other achievements, because they haven't completed them yet? But when I look in my achievements, I am looking at August!CrazyMcGee.

I am slightly concerned I am living up to my name now and you have called some nice doctors to come and take me away, but is there any way that could be happening? As I've written this, it's all started to add up for me...

It would be great to hear from other people who had transferred prior to consolidation. Do you feel like you are being haunted by your past self??

Another ex-APACer reporting in as having this happen to me; I have two of the "Kill 17 bajillion Trousersnakes on Nar Shaddaa" achievements completed but still stuck in my Achievements tracker. Clicking on them opens the appropriate page of the Legacy dialogue, but there's no check-box to un-track them (I assume because they're over-completed).

I only noticed this after the merger and I too transferred a toon to my new home (Harbinger) early, although I continued to play on Dalborra right up to closure. Perhaps CrazyMcGee is onto something.

It's not just "Javaal Fleet Action and Saleucami Fleet Action." Hydian Way Blockade keeps updating every second in my achievements. 8/8/2013 1213:14 then 8/8/2013 1213:15 and so on and such.

Ok, the bug does apply across all characters...

So here's my achievement tracker (Balmorra ones are done, Voss is current) here

And here, as an example, is showing my Crushing Republic Droids is complete here
