Yeah, this is petty, but the Achievement badge for Quick on the Draw seems to have stopped working.

This is supposed to happen the first time (once per month) when you watch a newly released episode within an hour after release. I tried now at least three different shows but this is the first month I haven't been able to get that.

I know, not exactly earth-shattering or preventing me from watching anything, and I'm not having any other issues, but it did work just last month, so I'm simply reporting it....

That's weird because I have it. I got mine on Dec. 3rd. The one that I can never seem to get though is the "Anime Fan" one where u have to "View a Simulcast episode immediately after launch." And I've done that many, many times, where I literally waited for the countdown to come to 0. Though, I think maybe part of the problem is that the ep (from what I remember) never loads when the countdown hits 0, I usually (if not everytime) have to refresh the page. So that might have something to do with it. Maybe this is only a problem though with Mozilla (I've only tried it with this browser)?

It hasn't mattered before whether I watched on any of Roku, Chrome, Firefox, Kindle (android) first, and it never had to be started the instant the show aired for me, either, several times I had gotten them later, as much as nearly the whole hour had passed in one case. That's why I thought it was weird...

Hmmm... I'm pretty sure that it's tied entirely to PC. (the achievement system that is)
Have you since gotten it?

Still no... and I have tried once or twice this month on the PC just because of this happening.

But I'm fairly sure that at least the Roku has triggered it in the past for me, because I watch almost everything on there usually. The only times I ever watch on PC are when the subtitles on Roku still haven't been translated after more than an hour (which thankfully seems to be happening less lately), or when I want to get a screenshot of something for the forums.

I suppose that since you only get that particular achievement once per month, it could be coincidental enough that I had just happened to use the PC 11 times at just the right time to get a screenshot, but this is the first month all year I've missed getting it, and I have actually tried letting it wait by counting down in a browser on the upcoming episode page...

Totally weird! I'll see if I can get someone to take a peek under the hood!
