This was something that had been planned but due to our error the announcement had not been made. For that we can only apologise for the late notice.~~snip~~
And most annoying: Players have to open a thread, inform the community managers about a change, and the community manager reacts. ITS THE TOTALLY WRONG WAY!
Indeed, and it's a point of feedback for us to improve on that in future. There were some issues that needed to be addressed with the mission, but I understand that more of these would be appreciated. It will be passed onto the designers to create more of the like. I know that there were a couple planned, but if these sorts of mission are what the community are really after, it's certainly a good point of feedback to motivate more of them.Thank you for the update.
Given the issue that has been with this mission and the amount of work put in by a lot of CMDRS I feel it would only have been fair to give some indication of the somewhat 'temporary' nature of the mission.
It is one of the best missions in the game and more of the same would be greatly enjoyed but the handling of this has been pretty poor at least.
