Some Quality of Life items to consider.
« on: November 08, 2021, 02:53:58 pm »
A couple of Quality of life suggestions to consider.  I am not sure about the technical difficulties of implementing, but it sure would be nice if we could:
  • Eliminate timers on portal missions that were put in place to prevent farming, since farming/power leveling is more or less endorsed now.  These timers are a needless hassle.
  • Allow players to invite others to team in the midst of flashback missions.  The server isn't heavily populated, and i sometimes feel bad when there are people looking to team, but I can't invite because I'm completing a flashback Arc.  The linkage to Task Force might be a technical hurdle, but perhaps inviting others to an in-progress TF wouldn't be so horrible either...

Certain missions are TOO easy to farm, see our official stance on AE leveling farms.  PL'ing is fine with us but we are not willing to let it get past a certain point of difficulty.  For instance the classic wolf mish will stay with a timer since it is probably easier to farm then even a fire farm.

As for the second point, we are aware of the limitations of Ouro and do have work planned to deal with it in some way.

Mish timer low(<=10 minutes)>all exit>radio>get mission> select radio mission> make it active mission> abandon progress on current mission, Yes OK.

should reset the timer on these sorts of missions too. I think at current the timer just keeps counting down but the map resets, correct me if I'm wrong.

Ah, so the AE farms are a compromise.  Fair enough.
