Michael Wittman? Tue, 04 October 2011 07:29
I saw in the forums that people are being awarded the badges for playing/defeating a DoW crew member. I clicked on the list to see who the DoW crew members are, and noticed something strange: one entry says "Awarded on 2011-06-30 10:31:05 at Michael Wittmann"

I don't think 'Michael Wittman' is the name of a scenario - is this a bug?

If I remember correctly, this scenario was two DoW crew members playing against each other. Perhaps they were testing some new rules and a new scenario.

Expert scenarios don't count toward rank and achievements...so it couldn't be that. Smile

Ras, I think you're mistaken about receiving achievements playing expert scenarios. It could be a bug but I have received two achievements playing them.

It's possible that things have changed, but the official word from DoW has always been that Expert Mode games don't count toward anything. Maybe when they changed the way Expert Mode works, they allowed us to get stuff in those battles! Razz

Expert scenarios don't grant Achievements.

Kelly, could you tell me which of your Achievements shows this? I'll look at it.

If you look at the Memoir Online Achievements page, and click on the one for playing against (not beating) a DOW team member, the second entry is:

Tenente ericb3
Awarded on 2011-06-30 10:31:05 at Michael Wittmann

Oh I see! Shocked

Don't worry about this: EricB and Ericb3 are test accounts that we use regularly. The so-called "Michael Wittmann" was a dummy test scenario that my colleague and I used to test a specific feature. We use many test scenarios like this.

So this is a bug in Web page: it should not show Achievements that were awarded with test scenarios. Embarassed

We'll fix this eventually. Simply don't worry about it for now.

You guys have sharp eyes Wink

Have fun!
