Yeah, I had no idea this was happening until I accidentally stumbled upon it yesterday. Great communication...

It’s been 30K every day so far in terms of Rewards. My mission last night did not pop in until about 2100 (eastern) after I had logged out and logged back in for other reasons. Not sure if it’s relevant but that’s roughly when I first logged on and accepted the mission on Sunday.

Clearly WG is catering to the players who don't like free credits by making the missions "opt in."

It is anyone's guess as to the rationale behind the opt-in condition.  It would seem logical to want to drive folks to the Advent Calendar, so they could be appraised of all of the specials.  I presume there are additional items pending, that will pickup on December 15th so this isn't only a sales-driving mechanism to point folks to the Premium Shop.  Get folks in the habit of checking the Advent Calendar now, because the real fun (and benefits) kick in later in the month.

I’m left wondering who came up with this idea and how it went down at the planning meeting.

“Hey, lets have little missions daily that you have to search around for and activate or you don’t get them done”

“Ohh, great idea, a plan with no flaws”

“Won’t that irritate the players”

“What?”

“Never mind, I concur, let’s do it”

 

This is just another manifestation of a trend that has been growing for months. Missions and events have become increasingly more confusing -- due to rules that are both convoluted in substance and difficult to find because of an unfriendly game interface, a confusing website, and WG staff errors and delays.

 

It has gotten to the point that I literally don't even try to figure out the missions and events. I made an exception with the credit chest thing because it sounded so easy and valuable. I messed it up, though, and didn't get the 500,000 credits. I was confused. This has got to change.

i also agree that the missions should just START,no interaction needed.then a popup to CONGRATULATE you on your total awesomeness at completing a COOL mission!!! maybe this is some weird anti

bot protocol(no interaction,no mission for you BOT MONSTER!!)

I've developed a habit - use the launcher to start in Safe Mode and then manually trigger the advent menu to activate the mission.  I've yet to experience an issue when going down this path.

Well, if you're simply clicking a button to get 30k credits for doing nothing else special, it's a pretty nice bonus.  Over 45 days (if the missions last that long) it starts to add up.

30k x 25 days is 750k. If it goes beyond Xmas, it's more. Maybe the rewards and the requirements will increase...who knows. This could just be the first week to get people in the habit.

This is of course is to get people to check the Advent Calendar. Whining about it being opt-in seem about as pointless as the arty, mm and E-25 whining threads.

I get the pop-ups at random. It's weird. I missed two just because I never thought of them while playing.

First thing I do now, is launch in Safe Mode to ensure no issues with manually enabling the daily mission.
