19 months? I thought you said it was the past 3 events? I’m a bit confused.

The past 19 months would be the past 70 events, give or take.

This bug did not exist till this event. DB is not responsible for the your own incompetence.
Not to mention, the last two events were hybrids, and expeditions and galaxy give our far more points than faction sections. Not DB’s fault that you decided to boycott phase 2 of those events and lost your 1/5 as a result.

Lol I failed 2/4, both at 90% success, both gave me the error. I went from 66 to 32. I screen capped the first one.

Ultimately the formula may be correct but the servers are messing it up. It may be the case that the false fails we have all gotten, you know the constant 99% fails is being shown but for what ever reason, its governing out random points. It just keeps flashing up random points from 0,2 400 800…until you hit continue. Db, you got some work to do.

It was nice receiving VP from failed missipns while it lasted. But, that is possibly what caused this issue.

Naw, he said that he hadn’t gotten anything worse than 1000 on a shuttle event.

For the record, I haven’t ever gotten anything lower than top 1000 on shuttle events ever and we have similar roster compositions.

0/4ed 4ks, 44k honor.  Its Janeway mechanics. Fail upwards.

Just wanted to say thanks for posting this on here. I’ve felt in the past that some players have kept quiet about bugs/glitches in order to secretly go on benefiting from them. Glad to see that’s not the case here.

Hopefully DB get it fixed pretty soon.

From what I can tell this is this consistently happening on failed 4k shuttles with Janeway on.

Shame I can never get past 2250 VP shuttle then haha

(FF) This Sisko1 - 03 August 2017 11:30 PM

Fyi others have seen it happening, im going to screen shot my points to see if it’s actually giving them if it happens to me. Bugs are not fun when others are paying. Last week some fails didn’t give points.

I was wondering why the last 3 events I missed the 1/5 reward for the first,second and third time I said to myself jeez Klingons are popular and competition is fierce I couldn’t understand why my rank was 1k places off the norm

Sorry, but this had nothing to do with any glitches at all. If you finished 1k ranks lower than usual 3 times in a row,  you prob did something wrong or put less effort into.

As far as i am aware of, this 10k glitch is only happening since this event. And for the Klingon month events i couldn t see any unusual scores. Of course competition was higher, cause plenty more bonus crew was involved. My main account finished as high as usual and my alt account, which never ever finished before into Top 1000, did it 3x times in a row in Klingon month.

So yOu SaY iT’s nOt a gLiTcH iT’s jUsT I CoUlDn’t bE aRsEd TrYiNg tO gEt WiThIn tHe tOp 1k FoR tHe FiRst TiMe iN 19 MoNtH’s. That’s interesting your alt which Never before makes top 1k had no issue could be your right

Oh cool, you use random capital letters in ur reply, to let it look more special. Tells a lot about urself. LOL

I only said, that the 10k glitch, which this thread is about, had nothing to do with ur Klingon month failure(s). Cause this glitch wasn t present back then. And if you refer to other things, like f.e. high percentages shuttles that fail way too often, surprise surprise this affects the hole player base and not just you(i had these issues as well during klingon month, even before and even now). But prob 1000 peeps hadn t such issues, cause otherwise how could you miss Top 1000 , 3x in a row during klingon month. smile

Maybe you didn t notice, that the days of easy, low effort top 1000 finishes for long time players with great crew are over. New passionate players enter the game every day (yes, i know this game is dead and no new ppl start to play….smile ) and catch up fast, by investing way more time and effort as many long term players. And if ppl finish higher which have a similiar rooster as urself, i can think of several reasons wich doesn t need to have included any conspiracy theories.

Set a timer every 3h. Use time boosts. Buy packs and lv event crew fast. Hand pick missions, and do the same missions with best success rate over and over(easy to do with always have max amount of missions open, so everytime you collect a shuttle and start a mission the exact same mission pops up). But i am sure as long time player you already know all this, which leads to the assumption i already stated. You didn t put enough effort into. Must be hard seeiing other players overtake urself right? But such things happens when you become to self confident and laid back.

AGAIN: The current issues this game has(and it has lots of), are the same for all players and EVERYONE is affected, NOT “JUST YOU”.

So instead using a lame poor excuse, maybe start playing more intense(again). rolleyes

P.S.: My alt is mainly monthly card only and for sure has not such a good rooster as ur main. smile

And regarding the topic:

As i stated before, i hope this new glitch get fixed very fast, cause its a huge disadvantage for players that never reach the 4k shuttles.
And i can say for myself that i don t fail 4k shuttles on purpose(but thx to constant 95%+ failures its not even necessary), but i don t blame ppl if they do.

And a big thank you towards the eXodus fleet for bringing this up. Thats true FairPlay , Kodus.

The only fair resolution for this is to give everyone an Arachnia or restart the event.

I bought a fourth shuttle for this to finish my Arachnia.  Because I only got to 3500 last night I now will not be able to.  This is complete and total BS.

Pretty sure he’s not trying “to let it look more special”

My last lot of shuttles came in at 3500. My next lot are all 4k.
So far I’ve only failed one mission and I didn’t check the VP as it was before I saw this. The failure was a 3.5k vp shuttle so I doubt I’ve been helped by this bug.
I’m placed 298 and 47,252vp.

What I’m getting at here is I’m about right if not higher than I expected at this stage and I doubt I’ve had an exploit boost.
I look at the leader board around me and every bodies got the sort of vp I’d expect to see.
I look at the top 50 and it looks about right to me there too.

So what if this is a display bug and you don’t actually get the VP listed?
From what I’ve seen, that sounds reasonable.


I’ll check my next lot of shuttles in and see what happens but can we start registering our VP before collecting and after and seeing if we can collaborate what’s being said?
