I have a lot of respect for developers (am one myself), and no developer can reasonably be expected to know all this. Which is why taking feedback is a MUST, and this site really needs real amin support to fix or move or delete bad achievements.
Maybe if we get enough traction on that thread, we can get this modified.
As for your thread's message, I think you're exaggerating a lot. No skill? So I guess step counting isn't a skill. And no one likes it? Well I do and you're more likely to get people complaining than not since few will take the time to post about it if it's not affecting them. 33% is not a tiny number and I can bet most of the 66% who haven't probably didn't bother or know about it. I'm only posting because I wanted to help and now I'm defending what I find to be an innocent enough achievement that took maybe a few tries. I took longer trying to get Cait Sith game over achievement.
Getting Fat Chocobo is luck based too and has LESS people obtaining it. Many others are below that and aren't luck based so why don't more people have it? Maybe they just don't care.
I think it's safe to say we're not going to get the other person to change their mind though so I'm not going to keep replying trying to. I'm not going to fight any modification but I see no reason to promote it either.
Even if you don't like the achievement though, don't report a ticket. That's the worst thing you can do. You can submit a revision and they can get the achievement demoted if it's voted on. However, if you report the achievement it generally winds up the dev because it isn't a bug in the code and the achievement is working as intended. I had someone report one of my achievements because they thought it was too hard. That's not what the ticket system is for.
This achievement isn't the hardest though, just annoying. I'm sure doing a no hit run on Megaman 1 or 2 is more frustrating though.
That's not true at all. You may have gotten lucky but I've gone through half a dozen times or so and missed it by mere seconds. And the reason is because you HAVE to escape each battle, and you HAVE to escape it before a full round of attacks has finished. If the RNG denies your escape, even once, that's bye bye achievement.
Anyone saying "this was so easy!" just got lucky on the RNG. But please recognize that, of the 60+ comments here, only a small handfull of you are claiming this is easy. The rest of us are proving that it is fully RNG.
However, the same goes for many complex achievements and sets on RA. To me this achievement treads the line between appropriate and unfair. I didn't get it first or second time and it upset me enough to ragequit, mainly because I didn't understand what more I could have done, and it felt entirely RNG whether I would get encounters or not. Learning that there is a step counter that can be juggled makes me want to try again.
Ultimately adjusting the time to add just a few more seconds allowance might be enough to push it towards being 'fair'. I'm considering doing something similar here: https://retroachievements.org/achievement/1247
I don't want to reduce a set's more difficult achievements, or gatekeep, but I wonder if a set could be more inviting if the achievements associated with the first 5% of the game were less intimidating. It's something worth debating, there is no right or wrong here, and this achievement fits into RA as-is in my opinion. It's just frustrating (in my opinion) that it appears to be far too heavily RNG-weighted.
This is a very important thing to consider and it's a shame other achievement creators don't.
This is exactly what happened to me with this achievement set. This achievement is the FIRST achievement in the game. I've already beat FF7 enough times, so beating it again just for the sake of it isn't in the cards for me. But to achievement hunt, heck yeah! But this achievement stopped me from even continuing. If this is the first achievement in the set, who knows what other BS is waiting later in the game. I mean, could I eventually get this one? Sure. Do I really want to save scum before a boss and have to deal with the entire first chunk of the game just to find out if I succeeded? Nope.
I think the terrible RNG of the first achievement has made people not even see what's later in the game. I'm genuinely not surprised there are other crappy achievements in this set. But most of us aren't going to bother getting that far because we see what BS the very first one is.
1st because the amount of luck it does involve.
2nd for that time being this short for no reason.
3rd because FFVII, as the first 3D FF, came out with awful direction mapping around the scenarios - at some it just doesn't make sense at all.
4th for making me feel stupid :'(
