EDIT: It’s been a while since the bug associated with this was fixed so I’m taking down the test map.
For those having trouble with the “Expert Phase-Smith, Perfect Templar” anniversary achievement, I’ve made a test map that may help indicate why the achievement isn’t awarded for you. Hopefully it will reveal what you’re missing as you play through the mission so that you can correct it when playing the real mission.
The test map is identical to the real mission except for notifications that will display in real time when anything of the player’s dies during the mission. If the message appears, it means you wouldn’t have earned the achievement if you had been playing the real mission.
If nothing of yours dies during the mission (no pop up messages), there will be a message that will appear at the end of the mission if the achievement would have been awarded. (Nothing will appear if not.) NOTE: This appears after the end-game cinematic.
Some things that are confirmed:
- Cancelling a warping building counts as losing a structure and will fail the achievement.
- The Bonus Objectives play no role in the achievement.
- The floating mineral pickups play no role in the achievement.
- The bug where using Solar Lance, Deploy Fenix and Purifier Beam will cause the achievement to fail has been FIXED.
