The new watch list is excellent functionality and extremely helpful for doing dailies and other achievements. However, it’s a bit of a hassle to go in and manually clear every watch item once it hits 100%. The way the list priority works it becomes pointless to use more than 5 watch item slots if you don’t go to the trouble of clearing out the completed items, because the 100% achievements will always sit at the top.

There’s no real reason anyone would want to have achievements they’ve already completed tracked in the top right corner, so please automatically clear Watch Items once the achievement is earned.

EDIT: Some folks have suggested an option for “Automatically clear completed achievements”, that seems fine to me. Another small idea, it would be nice if the “Daily/Monthly” priority system that already exists when you aren’t tracking anything could be applied as an option in the Watch list as well. That is, you check a box that says “Prioritized Daily/Monthly Achievements”—so long as your daily/monthly aren’t completed yet, daily/monthly achievements will be on the top of your ingame watch list until the overall daily/monthly is completed, then they sort by current progress as normal today.

I actually like that I can see the 100% complete and am able to acknowledge that I have completed an achievement.

If I’m completing multiple achievements at a time, I’d rather the ones I’m tracking not disappear before I might realize I’m complete.

Maybe as an Option in the Achievments-Panel? A checkbox “Clear Achievements on Completion”?
I would also like this, as you can see recently completed Achievements on the Overview-Panel.

Oh god please can we have this (as an option though dont force it on people). I genuinely thought achievements not clearing was a glitch for quite a while before i realised it was intentional. Its so annoying for dailies cos you select 5 then the next day you have like 2 on the watch list because the other 3 arent on that day.

I’m definitely in favor of an option to enable this. I can see why some might want to keep completed achievements in view, but I would prefer for them to clear out.

How about just sorting the 100% achievements down to the bottom of lists? Then you could select more than 5 and the completed achieves would disappear from your UI, but people struggling with a particular achieve could select just one and see when they get their 100%. Obviously an option menu thing would be superior, but this could be workable too.

How about rightclicking on the 100% achievements to delete them from the list? It would safe a click.

I actually like the way it is setup now, I know it can be a little tedious to go in and change it, but it let’s me keep track of what dailies have been finished.

I actually like to see the 100%…
And they being removed could be annoying for those who want to see the achievements complete there.
Hm… what about a timer on it? Something like waiting 5 seconds after getting 100%, and then get moved to the bottom of the match list.

Maybe there could even be a small gear and settings panel for the watch list.

In any case, at least for a short time, if achievements were to be unwatched automatically, that should be an option.

  • “Unwatch completed achievements after X seconds”. An option with a checkbox/toggle and a textbox to input a value. Uncheck the option to never unwatch them, enable and set to 0 to unwatch them instantly, set longer values for otlonger her times.

And not just that. The watch list still needs some improvements:
- It should be context-sensitive, putting at the top PvP achievements while in PvP, WvW achievements while in WvW, and move them to the bottom while not in there.
- It should let you manually sort it instead merely putting at the top the ones closet to completion. Since people may want to keep the automatic sorting, some way of setting the order would do. Maybe a series of checkbuttons plus a ‘inverse order’ toggle button. We should be able to sort them at least:

  • Most completed first.
  • Least completed first
  • Alphabetical.
  • Reverse alphabetical.
  • Manual (You can drag and drop them in the list)

- A “Dailies and monthlies first” toggle would be nice too.
- A “Move completed ones to the bottom” toggle would be good too.

I completely agree. I was annoyed at this too as it just made it seem less useful. Adding options to remove completed achievements and Prioritize daily/monthly would be great. As that’s what I wanted it to do anyways.

^ this is the way to do it. Give people options. Also I would like an option to ‘open the achievement panel to the last page I looked at when I closed it’ i.e. daily achievement page. I know its only a few clicks but it would save me the hassle when trying to finish certain sections.

Also in the UI panel itself completed achievements should be down the bottom and partially completed can remain in order of progress. Scrolling through completed achievements every time I want to see what is remaining is annoying.

What about an option to hide completed achievements altogether (as well as any categories that are fully completed)?

(no time to read this all, but I have a suggestion)

I don’t want my daily/monthly tracker hidden when I select other achievements to track. I hate that, and that’s the reason I don’t use the tracker at all, to be able to see the daily/monthly tracker. One word: Annoying.
