You're asking in the wrong place if you want an official answer. Moderators are not staff members. They can make suggestions like everyone else, but they're volunteers who moderate the forum. That's it. Although staff members do read the forums, there's no guarantee they will read this thread, or provide an answer.

I just had a quick look and can't see this in the bugs forum. Is it there? If it is, can you please provide me with a link?

Thank you Caledonian, will report in the right place (bug, miscellaneous), but -due to the time passed from the first report in this topic, seriuosly doubt for a quick fix. Hope i am wrong.

In the meantime i remain astonished that the Staff of an 8 years old game have no time/resources to read this topic and fix a minor bug like this.

Do they have a Quality Assurance team? I am sorry, but dont think so.

Amen

Thank you very much, waiting for an answer from an official (Dev or Moderator).


The Lead Moderator (regular player that just volunteers his time to moderate the forum. Not an EW employee), Tod1d suggested the solution that worked for him when he did the mission(s). Other solutions worked for other players and they reported them too.

The bug was reported when it was first discovered (Arriving at wreck Island doesn't register for missions). Why it hasn't been fixed, I have no idea. EW prioritizes bugs based on severity, impact, and available resources.

Why it works for most people, and doesn't work for a few is a mystery. This also makes it very difficult to reproduce & analyze to fix it.

Threatening to "take your ball & go home" (quit playing the game) isn't a very effective way to get the issue some more attention. ;)

I am sure they do have a QA team - who may be very busy! Out of 470 missions, it's only this one and possibly Illegally Blonde that I have had issues with. With this mission there is an easy work around - visit the coordinates and post a map screenshot along with a screenshot of your harvests to Support, and they can manually credit you with the mission and the $GMs. This problem is out in the open, and the community have offered various ways to work round it, so it's not as if anyone is in denial about it. As has been said, issues that affect different players in different ways (or not at all) are quite hard to troubleshoot.
