Thread: The Great Mission Board Massacre

    The Great Mission Board Massacre

    Has Fdev stated at all if the mission board will ever be populated again to the extent it was when 2.4 dropped ?
    Or are we now just stuck with the trash options we currently are forced to suffer ?

    This is not the first time something really good has been flashed before us only to be snatched away.

    Haven’t read anything new. I hoped the original large amount of missions would come back to us. Maybe that was the issue, too many were causing the bug

    The stations I have been at for the past few days have been pretty good. One of them had between 30-47 missions alone for one faction. A big mix of mining, donation, data delivery, and cargo missions.

    Lol yeah, when 2.4 went live I was even beginning to think I'd give Fed ranking another go.
    I don't think so anymore....but it's still a bit better than it was before. I have an average of 8-10 missions per faction at my Homesystem what is a big improvement to the 3-5 there were.

    They murdered the missions. There isn't a good way to make credits atm. They call it balance.

    They call it pandering

    This was discussed in a similar thread. People are seeing wildly different things. So it seems erratic. As I stated, where I am now I’m picking up plenty of haulage missions paying around 1-2million a pop, as well as more shall we say “specialist” missions abound that are paying up to 7million.

    im also being offered upwards of 20 with some factions on each board.

    People are clearly getting two extremes here. The encouraging news is that some who were seeing bad offerings are already seeing it improving.

    Thats strange, I didnt see much drop in mission offers after the change.I still get a fairly large number of them.Way more than we use to get. How many total are you getting? I bet I get 50 or so at Sol. Somewhere around that anyway. Some pay real good and some dont. Im not lacking for choices.

    The flow of the mission type is dead.
    Fdev are killing the flow of the boards to suit the more farmer type gameplay style.
    I could really get a nice narrative going with the boards that would suit whatever roleplay I was engaging in, but see now, its garbage.

    Yeah. Follow on missions.
    What ?
    As far as I was aware, there where always follow on missions. The only difference was that the game wasnt holding your hand and guiding you into it with big flashy signs and baners. The player base is always the problem with every single game nowadays. Hate. Isnt strong enough a word.

    Got to give the players what they want though.
    What ?
    I dont think so. If you make a good game tye players will come. Pandering to (cant write it) will eventually lose you players anyway. Make the game you invisioned in the beginning Fdev and stop rolling over for folks.

    Get in line, I was first.

    Yesterday I was under the impression that at least the regular missions were returning a bit to normal.
    No go, last night it was all steeply underpayed junk.

    Pre 2.4 I was genuinely enjoying mission running, especially passenger transport, but now I'm already expecting the worst only to be confirmed when I start up the game and have a look.
    When I do pick a mission, just to be doing at least something I realy hope to be interdicted by a fat Conda, it's bounty pays more then the mission I'm running.

    Ugh, why?!?!!??!

    Again... Putting in a few hours today. Trying to get to Elite now in Trade I've decided, and here is an example of what I have just been offered. This is a big one, but having no issues finding ones mainly offering 1-2 Million a pop, and with a fairly well equipped Cutter for Cargo, can take a few at a time.

    I got fed up of waiting for the missions to be fixed, also...the thargoid thing doesnt seem to be holding my interest the way id hoped...so, me and my brother are off on a merry little exploration adventure, taking in some sights and building a nice little "holiday album" lol.

    Maybe by the time we get back the boards will be fixed and we will be able to communicate or do some real science with thargoids...until then....laters world! o7
