Major Bug With Character Achievements

API Discussion
Hi, this is Kihra, the creator of Warcraft Logs.

Since 8.2, character renames/transfers have been very broken. Characters that transfer or rename seem to be behaving as though "Display only character achievements to others" was checked in-game, even though it is not.

I've had over 100 players with issues now just since 8.2, all of whom have done a rename/transfer and lost their logs, since I have no way of telling the new character is the same as the old one due to this bustage.

This is a major issue and will break Raider.IO as well.

Thanks for any insight you can provide.
Hey Kihra! Thanks for reporting this!

We are aware of a bug where account-level achievements are not appearing for characters in the Community API. We're investigating a fix, but we do not have an ETA at this time.

In the meantime, we recently released new endpoints on the Profile API that include character achievements. These new endpoints do not appear to be exhibiting this issue, so it might be best to migrate to them where possible, as we will be increasingly advocating that consumers migrate to these new APIs as they come online.
The issue affecting account-level achievements for characters in the Community API has been resolved. If you experience any further issues, please let us know!
