Monthly achievement category, specific achievement "Experience Survivor"
Earlier after doing WvW getting like 60 to 70 kills without dying, followed by some low level zone events and kills, I log out. I gained nearly 30,000 experience towards the achievement, so I'm 3/10 the way to having it. Not too bad, I've gotten it before, I can get it again.
I log back in a few hours later. I do a few events in a low level zone, kill some deer and centaurs. Look at my progress and it seems to be the same. I kill one thing to confirm, and yep, it is not increasing, as if I had died.
Well I didn't die. I didn't die in PVP, PVE, from fall damage, or any other death. I haven't ever even tried crafting, so as one player suggested could be the cause, that wasn't it either.
This isn't the first time I've seen this happen. Person sitting next to me had the exact same thing happen to them, with an unscheduled maintenance during the meantime. No deaths or crafting in that case either, but they were right around at 90,000 of the 100,000 needed to complete it.
I've submitted a bug report, and it may get fixed eventually, but for now, I'm back to grinding thousands of crabs to get it again I guess.
