0.85 should have introduced the Steam achievements for winning as capitar and umber.

But I cannot see them in the achievement overview.

Is this an oversight?

the better question here is 'why do you care about steam achievements?'

Because they're kinda fun.

Yea, I have to agree, though I also used to be slightly disdainful of the concept. Achievements/trophies give an extra bit of playability to most games, adding goals to shoot for outside of simple victory, as well as providing a point of comparison to other players.

 

In other words, bragging rights. Some folks don't like that idea, but in my experience as a gamer, and a businessman dealing with gamers for way too long, it's all part and parcel. Hand in hand, even. People who enjoy competition, even with an artificial opponent, want, maybe even need a sense of accomplishment outside of simple victory.

 

I'd even go so far as to suggest that TBS/single player gamers probably appreciate such trappings even moreso than multiplayer gamers, generally speaking.

 

On that note, I'd like to see achievements for playing as/defeating custom factions, winning with a relatively small number of cities, and winning at each of the difficulty levels, just to name a few.

Without Steam Achievements, who would actually play the Vanilla Sovereigns?

achievements mean nothing .. however, things that are broken should be fixed.

I'm close to 500 hours between FE and LH, and I have yet to play as a vanilla sov. Too much fun creating custom leaders and factions. I wish there was a mechanism for creating custom races, and heroes as well, total nerdgasm.

That said, I'll play all the vanilla guys after the beta is done, just for the achievements.
