This is... very disappointing. I was looking forward to completing as many achievements as I could, and I was expecting more than just a sudden "Well, it's down now!" What I would really like to see is achievements getting integrated into the game offline. It's not hard to ensure no cheating even offline, and the one thing achievements do very well is entice people to play in ways they don't normally play -- and provide a reward as incentive to actually practice enough to do the really hard ones. Even if the only thing you get is a little menu in-game listing all the achievements you've completed, it's STILL better than gutting them completely. It's not about giving yourself a challenge -- you do that all the time. It's about the /game/ giving you a challenge, and acknowledging you've accomplished it.

"The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all." --H. L. Mencken

Aww, I only had 3 left to do I liked them myself. Got me to play nations, and play in ways I otherwise would not have done. Also, as the other guy said, kept me from cheating in the head of the moment.
