Is it that there will be something else under achievements that reads "0/1" in your list that you won't be able to earn after 6.0?

Or is it something else?
No, my achievements will not be affected currently as I will be finishing the Command achievements before 6.0.

Either:

or:
  • Properly archive these achievements. This means zero all points offered by the achievements and move them to a separate section.

Eric suggests they will be moved to a Feats of Strength section. We have little precedence for what this means. The only current Feats of Strength section (under the Legacy category of achievements) features one achievements worth 0 points which was limited-time (Play 2 Give 2018), and one achievement worth 100 points which is still obtainable.

Another case of archived achievements is the Dark vs. Light event. At first, everyone's progress on the achievements was reset, but the achievements remained. This caused great outrage and the eventual result was that the achievement progress was returned. Removing all progress from Galactic Command achievements is not a solution and I do not propose it.

Other evidence we have for the fate of archived achievements is Eternity Vault and Karagga's Palace Nightmare Mode. These modes were removed in 4.0 and the achievements were moved to an Archived section in the Operations category. However, the points were retained so their move has effectively done nothing.

Please do not do the same to the Galactic Command achievements. There have always been unobtainable achievements in this game and it's possible there always will be. But I would not like to like to see the number increase when it can be easily avoided.
Appreciate the feedback here. Your second suggestion above is our intention. When we say moving to feats of strength we mean that the achievements will no longer be attainable and their value will go down to 0 points.

I hear your feedback as well that there is some inconsistency in how we treat the other archived achievements, the team is looking into them!

I never moan about this game, I love it no matter what happens. Maybe I wrote it wrong, I just tried to explain how Bioware looks at the game. Its simple, they need to keep players busy for low costs. Thats what they always do and it works.

Well, as long as its achievements which you easily gain over time just playing the game its no big loss if they are reduced to 0 points.

And with this, you can screw over some cheevo hunter over who did this grind only for the juicy points. Please consider to change them to achieve Galactic Renown Rank X (300 for example). So it's possible that everyone who joins the game during a later period can get the cheevos and everyone who did them before has a little headstart.

Thanks for rethinking it.

Why should you get an achievement for completing a system in a game, after the game has removed this system?
