Hello, and welcome back to another Dev Diary from the snow-stricken city of Stockholm. Today we will be talking about that quintessential feature completionists like myself simply crave whenever a new DLC is released: achievements. :D

This batch consists of 21 new achievements, most of which relate to the new countries and mechanics, though one is dedicated to the 2018 PDXCon HoI4 Challenge (30 Minutes of Hel), and another was a brilliant suggestion by a viewer of Daniel and myself's playthrough of the new British focus tree (Britzkrieg).

In addition to adding these new ones, I've made some adjustments to the more 'grindy' achievements that were added to Waking the Tiger. Having myself completed every single achievement in the game, none annoyed me even nearly as much as Battlecry and Awake and Angry. To make these less of a 'conquer the whole world three times over' pain to get, I've added exclusions for the European enclaves to the requirements of these achievements. It now will no longer be necessary to reclaim Guangzhouwan, Macau, and Hong Kong to get them :)

Now, on to the new achievements:

Why isn't there an achievement for releasing Newfoundland, playing as them, and annexing Canada!? :(

Cool stuff. :)

By the way, could someone enlighten me on (possibly Internet-related or cultural) references to "Nothing Wrong with our Bloody Ships", "Putting the Raid on the Medway to Shame", and "Treading the Narrow Path"? Thank you.

PS: I like the "Vive la Jeune Ecole" icon and reference.

I'm dissapointed that there are no kancolle-related achievments. How could you guys? The DLC literally begged for the shipgirl memes. :(
