Thread: Mission failed immediately after accepting

  1. #61
    Hey all, just wanted to let ya know, I ran into this this problem this morning.

    Had to make a forum account, usually I just read and poke around but this was annoying.

    I'm at Yapping Dock in LTT 15574, and I took a boom data delivery mission at around 1:45PM Central. It auto failed, I went to check it and the entire message was blank. To make sure this was a bug, I tried to take another, and it, too, auto failed. I also received a blank message with a skull pattern on it each time it failed. Completely blank, no title, no words. Just the skull message for assassination missions. I relogged immediately, and the failed blank messages were still in my transactions tab. However, when I pulled them up this time, they at least listed the info of what the mission was supposed to be. After I deleted the missions I took another Boom data delivery mission and it work. Weird and annoying, as my rep went down from the auto fail.. oh and I lost a chunk off change.

    Been happening to me for several weeks now, mainly with donation missions, but occasionally courier and cargo ones. Seems more common in solo than open. I'd say the most frustrating aspect is then having to delete the failed mission from the transaction tab, why on earth why I want to keep a failed mission there? It would at least make this fractionally less annoying if the failed mission was simply discarded automatically rather than me having to manually do so. Any chance of this being fixed soon (ish) it isn't as though grinding military ranks is hugely enjoyable currently without having to log to temporarily correct this bug.

    Same here, have had to jettison tons of gold, palladium, cobalt etc. Virtually all transport missions are failing for me. FD, please fix this.

    Playing solo mode, in Yum Kamcabi. Accepted mission to deliver 3 units of hydrogen fuel, and immediately received the "Mission Failed" message. Now have 3 units of stolen hydrogen fuel.

    Yep, just happened to me for the first time

    Had to transport 2 titanium to Bastes and it immediately failed me with the same blank message with a skull in the corner.....it was a mission above my rank, but if it's going to do this I'd rather it not allow me to take the mission in the first place, then allow me to then fail me

    I'm quite new to the game, having only played about 40 hours and am still a mostly aimless, harmless, trader :-/

    Same thing happened to me.
    Just upgradet from my viper to a type 6 to do transport missions and every single transport mission fails immediately :/

    Same here. Doesn't matter if solo or open. Transport missions are useless now. Failed immediately after acceptance

    A month later and still no solution? I just got 7 fails with 2 goods inbetween.

    Frontier failed.

    I am getting it tonight in Wu Gurinagi, it is failing pretty much all data delivery missions instantly in all play modes

    Well put, incredibly annoying bug that should have been fixed a good while ago. Been trying to rank up with the federation and 90% of the missions I take instant fail, doesn't matter where I am or whether I am in group or solo. Pretty game breaking tbh .. .. ..

    Just so we all know - this is now in the Known Issues List (which also means they have all the info required )

    • Players may experience an instant missions fail [NEW]

    Hopefully a fix will therefore be forthcoming...

    Sell any failed mission's cargo at a Black Market, especially if ya haven't unlocked the engineer that gets unlocked after so much sold or number of different BMs (I forget details), to counter any fines earned for mission failure.

    Ive been constantly getting this bug for the last few days. It's pretty annoying as I lose the missions Im interested (f.e. boom cargo transport) and it forces me to relog to get new missions. How come this (imho) pretty game breaking problem hasnt been addressed yet? Missions are a big part of this game.
