Since the release of the temporary New Blood and LD missions, a lot of you asked if it was possible to put back the missions you’ve missed so as to gain the mission points.
To answer to this demand, we will allow you to reactivate the expired missions for a price in credits. However, the development didn’t start yet therefore it is not possible to give you another release date than «as soon as it’ll be finished» but you can tell us what you think about this feature.
I’ll explain what we want to do:
It’ll be simple. First, we will add a «Expired mission» tab next to the «Missions completed» one on your mission page.
In this tab you’ll be able to see the list of expired mission and reactivate them for a price equal to the number of mission points they give, divided by 10 and rounded up.
For example: a mission giving 10 points will cost 1 credit, a mission giving 40 points will cost 4 credits. A mission giving 5 points will cost 1 credit (because it’s rounded up).
This system will give the possibility to gain the mission points BUT NOT the mission prizes. To win the LD character you still have to complete the missions before the deadline.
This system will allow you to reactivate all missions you didn’t unlock in time before the deadline, no exception.
@ Soldesh : Well, for a rich noob to equal or surpassed the veteran player he'll have to actually complete the missions, so by the time he's done he probably won't be such a noob anymore. Especially since the temporary mission don't account for that much missions points.
Actually, I strongly doubt that newcomers will be attracted to this feature. It makes much more sense for a newbie to complete the regular missions, they're free and give rewards once completed, rather than paying some of his hard earned credits to unlock missions that don't give any reward.
As it is, this feature is mostly designed for veteran players racing agains other veteran player on the mission points board and who don't want to lose point because they weren't available to complet a temporary mission.
I like this. It means you don't have to worry about missing missions if something happens in real life. I also like that it only unlocks them meaning you still have to complete them and it only awards mission points which means players who complete them befor deadlines still get extra rewards.
@ Rogue Creaper : Allowing people to obtain Ld characters through re-activated expired Ld missions would have erased most of what makes the LD characters specials. I can understand why someone could be frustrated to miss a Ld character and having to wait for it to come back, but this is also why it's so gratifying to finally get them.
