BUG: "Barbary Pirate" awarded incorrectly
I was awarded the "Barbary Pirate" achievement. At the time I was playing as England and I have never played as the appropriate civilization. However the AI was playing as the correct civilization and I guessing it triggered the achievement.
With so many posts about achievements not registering I'm looking forward to the AI helping me earn more.
+1 same problem, also playing as England. Maybe the Barbary Pirates was originally going to be Francis Drake and his Golden Hinder but the nation/title was changed at the last minute.
Actually, I think it's a more general problem. I was awarded the "flying fortress" achievement while playing as France. I think the developers look for the event without checking if it is performed by the player or by the AI.
Ah, a way to make achievements even LESS important. The Attendance at a Great Event achievement.
