Since when is double strike not a "heroic achievement" with how uncommon this feat is, you would think it would be...

it never was a heroic achievement. And the reason it's not, is because it is possible to obtain it more than once per battle. Unlike the following:

Kraken Unleashed
High Caliber
Confederate
Solo Warrior
Dreadnaught
Witherer


So a better question would be: Why aren't the following considered heroic achievements?

King of the Air
AA Defense Expert
Fire Proof
Unsinkable

Right?

It's extra puzzling since Fire Proof and Unsinkable are arguably harder to get than Dreadnought.

Plus, Dreadnought is literally unobtainable for 90% of cruisers and destroyers. It just bugs me.

OH, and I should also point out, that the reason I did not include "first blood" in the list, despite it also being obtained only once, is because it can only be obtained by a single person, AND it is a guarantee that someone, somewhere, is going to get killed, by another player. So much so, that it would be a greater achievement, for obtaining victory, without killing a single ship; to the point that both teams would have to retroactively play in such a manner, to allow such a feat to begin with.

First Blood can be obtained more than once AND it is inevitable. That is why it is not a heroic achievement.

Arsonist can be obtained multiple times per battle too.

Now for someone to both get First Blood AND kill the last ship on the enemy team, that might be an interesting achievement (even though Kraken and Solo Warrior can cover this)

Used to be that taking the Survivabilty Expert skill allowed some ships without a Heal to earn Dreadnought ( I think the additional health was not added into the Dreadnought calculation initially) .  That loophole was closed a few patches ago.
