    It would be easier, but I think the one of the key points MA made was that the current system isn't designed for tons of avatars to have dozens of open missions. The explosion of Iron Missions, and tracking all of them for so many avatars is causing problems - thus their desire to get rid of them sooner rather than later.

    The new system as described is going to handle all of this differently as it is intended to track everything for everyone. As long as the old missions linger, they will continue to have their negative impact, so the change from 1 month to 1 year is a trade-off (and a welcome one), but leaving them open forever would force MA to maintain the legacy missions forever.


    Peace, Miles
    There is no need to hold the old missions open for ages, if they make a NPC, where we could exchange our not completed mission kill points to some % of the reward. This would be a fair way to not make some of us unhappy!

    And believe me, there will be a lot unhappy. The new system is welcome! But losing effort, time and money at the not completed mission not!

    I for one am pissed and would like compensating for all the missions progress i have done ,
    There are loads of missions that are half done and ONLY started for the skill rewards.
    Just give us a % reward based on completion. Simple

    It is perfectly possible for the game creators to do anything they please, if there is no compensation on lost peds it will be because MA DO NOT WANT TOO, Simple as that

    Its not a bonus, its another broken promise,
    No way i would be shooting 10k atrox without a reward, or 10k molisk, no MU there.

    Mission rewards were bought in to stimulate hunting, which is exactly what they do.

    As said above without the reward most mobs would be left alone...
    Most missions would never have been started........

    like many others I have a young family, there is simply no way I can commit to the hrs needed to do all my missions in a year.

    Surely this compo option keeps everyone happy and is a far better way to address the situation, especially when real money and hard work are involved.

    The Bestiary is where you will find all relevant information regarding your avatarís current progression in Hunting Challenge missions.
    Since the new system is very similar to the list of creatures that used to be in compets when it existed, and each iron mission will become a part of that new system will there be taming type iron missions created under the new system, where each tamed mob counts instead of just each kill? Ever since the reintroduction of taming every tamed mob didn't count towards the iron missions since you tamed the critter instead of killing it. It'd make sense to create taming missions that work along same line as the iron missions... otherwise, what's the point of taming more than one of each type of tameable mob?

    Well, I don't think that we've heard what MA is actually planning to do. We only know that we will get a new mission system. And guessing from what they argue their problem is there will be less missions available for the current status of an avatar.

    However, what I don't want is to be patronised. I mean I don't want to be told when I can start killing higher mobs mission-wise. If I want to with my low skills I still should be able to do that. If I'm a level 5 sniper and manage to kill a level 20 mob or something it should still count in that mission. Same thing the other way around, if I were a level 100 sniper I could still want to kill some punies just for the fun of it. Now there are missions for it and there should be missions in the future.

    I mean I know that all of this is possible without missions anyway, but I don't know if the new mission system will give us the same freedom of choice.

    Anyway I hope that ALL missions will be point based, or HP based, Level based, whatever, but that a kill on Stalker or Young don't count for the same.

    Like MANY said on this thread. The only way to not make anyone unhappy is to give the reward based on the actual percentage of the mission already done. Is that so hard to do? Even if it involves tokens as reward but anyway just round it down.


    When I started this game, there wasn't even missions available, now there are hundreds on them. Why you always try to screw up your costumers?
    Looks like, we old players, never get rewarded for being here supporting your product with real money! Instead you always make sure to piss them.


    You know there are many mission, 16600 kills for a single type of mob, comment this with any sane person and they will tell you that you are crazy and that it's a huge number of kills. There are a lot of iron challenges, players opened them all, of course, at least while rooming around and killing different type of mobs that wasn't planned, for example while mining, it would count for the many missions in existence. So as you should expect a lot of us have like 4500/10000 aurli or trox or big argonauts or whatever mob that cost 3+ peds to kill.

    Do you really think this is a fair move?

    I find this disturbing that MA wants to get rid of NPC interaction.
    Did any one say they wanted to automate their game so they don't have to go have a conversation, or have the choice to start a mission or not?
    What is it that makes them want to get rid of NPC interaction?
    As soon as you shoot something you get a mission?
    Whats next?
    No more space flight just port everywhere?
    No more exploration to find and map TPs?
    A complete TP map as soon as you login a new toon?
    I'm not getting a good feeling about this.
    On another note After the last update Cape Corinth lost a whole set of ATMs and a construction machine.
    Is this somehow linked to the lag issues?

    Something fishy going on.
    What is it that makes them want to get rid of NPC interaction?
    If they get rid of NPC interaction they are off the hook for programming AI into them.

    No more space flight just port everywhere?
    Thrusters don't work they way they should either.

    A complete TP map as soon as you login a new toon?
    I'm not getting a good feeling about this.

    Understandable. The naming of the TPs on FOMA and CP are so bad.

    Whats next?

    Many of us played for years before missions existed.
    ?
    Including me, I probably even joined the ship before you, but hey ? Is this a competition to show who's got the biggest ?

    Back then there was roleplay, storylines, multiple forums for the community, weekly if not daily communication between the players and the company, etc. The list of differences could go forever so let's just keep only one in mind : game was days away from gold release.





    We just celebrated the, how much, 16th birthday of it now ?
    Come on, we deserve better than a bloody grinding casino. Each of us on this forum paid enough of their salaries and pension to be allowed to voice it up.

    One small request:
    Can you edit the original post to say that we will have 1 year for a grace period? I was away on holiday and didn't have time to read through 20 + pages of posts. I finally got to the post where you guys have extended the grace period (thank you) . Would save alot of trouble if the post was edited

    Hmm seems ppl care much about skills. Very much unexpected.

    Would you rather have biggest skill ever and become a looser?
    Or little to no skill and yet profiting? What would you have picked?

    I do understand the frustration and is kinda bad move from MA to not be able to merge those two old and new missions.

    Are mining invovled in this too btw? What about the dailies?
