Blizzard address 'vanishing achievements' in Diablo III, "we are working on it"

There's another fly in the demonic ointment, but Blizzard has reassuring words. Players have been complaining their unlocked achievements in Diablo III suddenly disappear.

Blizzard says we shouldn't worry though because achievements aren't lost. Servers are "really busy" handling new players right now, and achievements are "being hammered" particularly.

All we've unlocked is still there, say the studio. Our unlocks haven't been deleted but it's taking so long for the data to be called from the servers that they just appear that way.

"As you can probably imagine, our servers are currently really busy handling all the new players coming into the game," said Blizzard. "The achievements server in particular is being hammered, which may be why your achievements are not showing up. It is not that they are deleted, but that there is a (very long) delay in retrieving that data."

"We are working on it."

Diablo III, despite offering full single player, requires an Internet connection where our characters are saved on Battle.net servers. It's launch day saw the servers buckle under the immense deluge of traffic as new players scrambled to activate their copies and play. Blizzard says it needs Battle.net for co-op and to combat cheating.

I'm just glad that I decided not to buy this game despite having spent too much time on the others. Its been dumbed down too much for my liking, and with all these bugs that everyone's experiencing... well lets just say that I'll be saving those $$ for Game of Thrones instead :P

GoT the game sucks. big time. It's got 4 on IGN that I've seen, I'm curious what the SI review will be, if there is one.

This launch has slightly more issues than I expected. If only they hadn't made this game online only.

I experienced this problem... and it got me wondering why I am not earning any achievements. Any ways... I am still enjoying the game.
