Do the "Win as [Leader]" etc. achievements work in BNW?

    I haven't won with any of the new Leaders yet, but 'Win Cultural Victory as Freedom Ideology' popped, as well as a couple others.

    The Sacajawea Legacy Achievement worked for me, but that's not a "Win as..." Achievement.

    I've been waiting for this thread to pop up, mostly because I didn't feel like starting it up myself, mostly out of assumption that no one would have any idea what I was talking about.

    Assuming we are talking Steam achievements, win-as-Shaka came through just fine for me, along with Workers of the World Unite (culture victory through order ideology) and Artistic License (finishing Aesthetics policy track.)

    I am playing the Mac version, if that's relevant.

    Okay, so to test this I loaded an old file of mine to try and re-finish it(saved on turn before finishing utopia project). The "old" file was from Saturday, but obviously the game switched the version to G&K for the load. I didn't get the achievements.

    I believe there's still a problem with victory-based achievements.

    We're aware of a problem with victory-type achievements in Gods and Kings and the base game. This is not an issue in Brave New World, so keep your saves until we get this sorted.

    While you're at it, Ottoman's have a 10 barbarian ship navy achievement still isn't working for either G&K or BNW (just for kicks I made sure I converted 10 galleys, not counting the triremes converted). Thanks!

    I really don't want to have to play Vanilla to get this achievement =P

    You can try the scenarios, they work.

    But judging from the global percentage, the answer is yes

    I haven't won as any of the new civs yet, but I was able to earn the "Pyramid Scheme" (Get the max theming bonus of +16 in the Louvre as France) and "Rocking in the Free World" (Win the culture victory with Freedom)

    Pretty sure vanilla is the only way to get that. Like Kamikaze Attack.

    Kamikaze Attack is still possible. I got the achievement in vanilla what feels like eons ago, but I've already had a game in BNW where one of my very early warriors was slightly wounded when it encountered a barbarian archer. Needless to say, it came down to my 1hp warrior vs a barb archer with a couple hp. Because it was one of the rare games where I went Honor, I decided to try and finish off the archer (Honor bonus against barbs, plus culture-per-barb-kill, meant I had every reason to try). And without even being Japan, I killed the barb and my warrior lived.

    So that achieve is still viable even in BNW. It may take having all the planets align and a lucky rabbit's foot, but I've still seen the occasional 1hp attack succeed, albeit probably once every 20 games and generally only early on against barbs (where I have a bonus to bank on). The main problem is actually getting to 1hp now. But in my first 15 games or so on BNW, I've already had it happen.

    I won as Portugal, Brazil, and Morocco and got both of the 'Win as...' achievements.

    I just got the Win as Morocco achievement the other day, and I've got several other BNW achievements as well.

    Won as Theodora the other day, got her achievement, so they do work in BNW.
