I'm honestly curious, Sahil, why is a cash-out impractical?
As far as coding goes, it's arguably just as easy as canceling them all.
-- Check for temporary missions.
-- Automatically reward all temp mission prizes.
-- Delete them.
It's one extra step, and they would have to check for which ones are temporary, anyway. So that's not impractical.
I'm guessing your argument is that it would be a huge influx of money into the market. (Of course, maybe I'm entirely wrong.) But they just did a 60% Credit sale, and they also gave a payout for the Rbs that investors had in a previously similar situation. Their reasoning? "We changed the value on the market, and that's unfair." Couldn't we argue the same thing, here? They're not cards, but missions. And they're changing the value (via time-limit) in a way that was entirely outside our control (aside from the missions after the "quiet" warnings there would be an overhaul, but no solid details given). Why do Rb holders get compensation, but not mission "holders"?
As an example, I have 21 "25 Point" Missions which should be worth 10 Credits. Now some of those are only worth 250 Clintz, and I don't remember how many, but my guess would be about 6-10 are only worth 250. So let's assume 10. That's 110 Credits I'll lose without playing that I "invested in". Why is it OK for me to lose those? Because of a "heads up" of 1 month? In the case of Rb cards, collectors would just wait the month until prices dropped and they could get them in packs, so it wouldn't help at all. That month makes it "our fault" if we don't cash out.
Now that said, I also agree 2-3 months is too much. I want the new missions out so I can get over this and move on with the game, for better or worse. However, I just don't see why giving a payout is actually as bad as people make it out to be. I feel like I'm a pretty "extreme" case (maybe I'm not, though), and all I'm asking for is compensation. Heck, the average price I paid in Credits back for all the "limited" missions would even cut it for me. I'm sitting at (somewhere around) 150 missions bought, but incomplete. Give me the average - 2 Creds per mission - and that would at least make the change feel much more bearable. Is 300 Credits (for "extreme" cases) going to break the bank? That's only 7 NB packs. At least it would give me something back. Just like Rb owners didn't get everything back, but at least something.

1) missions not temporary: they stay the same, nothing to say
2) temporary missions you unlocked but not finished yet: You have 1 month to finish them. After this time, they will be deleted. We think it's a fair time for everyone to finish them if you want to.
3) temporary missions you re-bought to get, mostly, mission points: We are working about restoring the credits used to re-buy old missions, we will keep you informed

Thank you, Chaos. That *really* means a lot to not only me, but I'm sure many others, as well.
If at any point I came/come off as forceful, I really do apologize. I always want to remain courteous, and I always remember you guys get to make the final decision.
Seriously, it means a lot.
And you didnt think you'd be a red flag xonia
its a guideline in customer service, for every unhappy customer there are 9 others who didnt say anything
and when one of your most loyal clients says something, thats a sign do something else. good to see that now they are acting on these
