Looking at the names A Shot in the Dark might be for hiring a target that isn't spotted. Based only on the name as I haven't had a chance to play since the patch.

Hypotheses (haven't actually patched my game yet, but these are my guesses)

Shot in the Dark: Sink an enemy that isn't spotted.

Festive Soup: Something with torpedoes, clearly. (Land a certain number of hits in one battle?)

Big Roll: MONEYMONEYMONEY

Fire Show: BURN! BURN! BURN TO THE GROUND! BURN!

Run! Admiral! Run!: Something about riding the border

Manners Maketh Man: Receive a compliment for "Assists in chat"

Posting to keep up with this thread.  Would be nice if it could be temporarily pinned to the top of the list while the event is going on.

Was in a game where our CV got Shot in the dark, he had no idea what exactly he hid though. He was the last one left riding the border enemy CV drooped torps on him, some hit and the enemy CV got Run! Admiral! Run!

Reposting this here:

 

Queue Jumper - I'm guessing it's beating another player to a kill somehow as I've only played one game so far and I received it around the time I torped a Wyoming who'd been taking hits from our BBs.

 

Festive Soup - something to do with Torpedoes? Earned after I'd sunk a third ship with them I think. Maybe to do with the number of torpedoes fired in a match.

If the enemy CV got Run! Admiral! Run! for that, maybe it's sinking the last enemy ship? (Or sinking somebody riding the border? XD)

The achievements are:

 

King of the Party

 Nothing yet

Hypothesis:

Reward: 

 

 

Can you add the reward given for each achievement?

Wild guess on shot in the dark but seeing a plane and a cloud, as well as the hand I think it could be akin to say, hitting an enemy in a smoke screen or during a cyclone. Generally nspotted makes sense teo but those are the two I think are more likely.

The thing is he didn't sink him. A enemy DD did. He just got some torp hits on him and he got it.

In that case, I'm going with "hit somebody riding the border."

A Shot In the Dark - either hitting domething while right clicked or maybe hitting something you can't see during a tsunami?

I'm thinking it's for hitting the last enemy, but not sinking it. So far none of these achievements look to be so reliant on player behavior as to be awarded for edge riding.

First game: I had 11 torp hits, 3 kills and just over 25K flooding. Got it on the 3rd kill, so could have been the kill or the 10/11th torp hit, cause most of the flooding was on one I didn't kill. Also got Q jumper, so.....

Pro tip for the future WG - If you make commemorative achievements for people to farm, tell us how to do it so we can.

Good idea. I'll add them if I know the reward.

ive earned

"queue jumper" still unsure on requirements but just enter queue while another ship is in game, should get eventually

"run admiral run" this is taking out an enemy steering

"festive soup" either causing flooding or landing torpedo hits (i got 7 hits and 4 floodings in the game not sure which is the cause)

"shot in the dark" is planes shot down in a match i believe (got 12 in the match, i may be wrong on this one)

I actually think the festive soup has something to do with flooding. Just based on how I got my last couple. I had a match with 4 floods and got it. But I got it after my first flood I think.

Agreed.  These mystery achievements probably seemed like a cute idea, but will likely end up being more of a hassle to keep up with than they're worth.  Especially for those who don't practically live on the forum at work like I do.
