I know most of view have noticed a change in the story achievements since Icebrood Saga kicked in, especially with all the new sets of weapon skins (some of them expensive in my point of view) kicking in with every episode. I personally never had anything against skin collections achievements (did some myself) but I am not the type to farm for skins and they started to affect me (and other players) when they became requirements for certain meta achievements.
This is not a rant about collections or farming, is just a rant about misplacing these achievements. Story Journal achievements (including the meta achi for an episode) always contained achievements related to story episodes or the events/meta events in the new map while the skin collections were placed in the Collections tab (where this kind of skin collections should belong). In my point of view, what Anet did is bad behaviour (placing achievements in their wrong category) and a cheap way of forcing us (the ones who were always aiming for the meta achievement) to farm the new maps a little more. If this was their understanding of "replayability" I am really disappointed.
I was curious how many people share this point of view, of keeping the Story Journal category dedicated only to story and events on the new map, while farming collections achievements should be placed only in the Collections tab, without affecting the meta for an episode. Feel free to share your points of view below and tank you.
