    Hello Jonna,

    This is definitely on our fix list and it's frustrating to us as well that this mission is not working correctly. I personally just tested this mission, again, for the Mini Patch to verify on our test server that it's working correctly.

    I have contacted support again on your behalf to ask them to push this mission complete through again while we work with MindArk to find the route of this problem not transferring over.

    The event clothing has been postponed for a couple of reasons, but the main one is because the parameters of converting them into a limited armor would be unacceptable for players, we'd rather have it be worth it and not just finished with rewards no one wants.

    This is still being worked on between us and MindArk to find a suitable compromise of content.

    This is, I believe, related to the sync issues that have plagued out planet since the teleporters have been missing. I've attempted to get them added for the last 3 VUs now but they don't spawn out to players. We're working with MA to find the root of these issues.

    While we don't want our vendors to be empty either this isn't something that we're totally in charge of, we're trying to get these vendors refilled in a timely manner however it's not so cut and dry.

    I hope this answers some questions but the short version is that we haven't forgotten about any of them and we are continually working to get them resolved in best way that we're able to possible within our allotment.

    Regards,
    Kris

    Don't want to go off topic but wanted to write what's on my mind.

    Consider the fact that MA can make any parameter changes in the game without even restarting the servers or applying a patch. For example the latest harvestable tree color change. So far in 24h I have seen the same tree type getting adjusted at least 3 times without any server restarts or patches, just live parameter update. What I can't understand is why can't they just test the color on test server and apply it to the game just once not playing with real server parameters like with toys in a sandbox.

    We also know from the past experience that NPC mission activation and also vendor stock update doesn't need any server restarts. It can be updated live.

    To add something to the current topics we are discussing here:
    This is what? Third year since TEN event was postponed and you still can't find a compromise? What are you trying to create there? Maybe just finish it like the rest of the planets did with basic "Highest single loot" rules and be done with it? Players will finally get their sets completed and end of the story. Stop trying to create some "super cool never before in EU event idea" that will NEVER HAPPEN because MA will not allow it anyway! And don't tell me you will create it when Cyrene finally reaches hard launch because we have heard that for over 2 years now and it is still not happening.

    Start to think that you first create missions with imaginary rewards without even consulting with MA. Release it all in the game. Players of course see the rewards and thinks: "Wow, nice rewards, let's do this!". When players reach the end of the mission chain, you start asking MA to stock vendors but then of course they look at the missions and reply with: "Whait! What? What is this? Nah this is not going to work! Find something else!". And of course then you spend year or two trying to find an alternative to the problem which shouldn't be there in the first place. Players feel screwed which they actually are, you waste time trying to find a solution that MA maybe will accept and in the end everything just gets screwed. I don't see any problems with item vendors on calypso, they are always stocked, according to the set maximum item count in the game.

    If you wonder why nothing got fixed with the latest patch, maybe look at the Strongboxes what MA put into Webshop yesterday. That must be their primary objective for the last month or so. Imagine the cash involved. Something like bugged NPC on a planet that is still in beta doesn't even stand close to that one. For MA most likely all Cyrene related bug fixes and other things are put into category "Things to finish till the end of the next year...or later."

    Just saying, it doesn't look good at all.

    Thx so mutch for making it work, now I think I stay for a time :)
    Was hoping for a better gun to use in hunting. Strange to get a "noob" gun when the mission have hard mobs to kill and cost so mutch.

    Thx again!

    Is that seriously the gun u got from an 'epic' mission chain? What possible use is that to someone who can take down 2000 skreel (and all the other mobs)? I outgrew that gun after my first month lol

    Not expecting a mod merc, but something fun at least. Super fast finisher or plasma pistol, just something a bit interesting. That's very low range, slow, poor damage, it's just about the worst rifle i could imagine.

    BTW: if this were a standard skill mission it would be worth in the region of 36tt valuable skills up to 120tt of junk skills. Give me 36tt evade or 120tt rifle any day.

    Sometimes a mission isn't about a reward, people can do it because of the fun or the achievement factor as well.
    (yes, got an achievement for it :))

    If I want to kill 10,000 wiles I can create that mission in my head and strive towards it. An official mission is all about the reward. I'm not 5 years old, a gold star is not enough :)

    I thought all men kept the mental age of a 5 year old, or is that just me? ;)
