    Nice that they changed some of the point values back.

    Awesome! So glad they reverted some (not all), especially the monthly one worth 1000.

    Definitely pays to be vocal.

    I'd like to point that my quest for Tekken 7 is different. It says to win 3 matches in a tournament, so it's tied to that specific mode and not a simple online match
    Correction: italian translation in the app is probably wrong. It says "win 3 matches in a tournament" but you have to win 3 normal ranked matches

    I wonder if it’ll revert after the many complaints they’ll get from people annoyed..
    Sure. I’m also going to go to my bank later and complain that they aren’t giving me enough free money either. Wish me luck.
    Best get to that bank.

    Annoys me that they would change after the initial couple days given that it's time based. But the only ones you might have missed is the daily's and you have a buffer of like 20 daily missions. So I put the pitchfork back down.

    Glad I was pissed and didn't bother with any of them yet. Time to get them points.

    I was already mad when they pulled February’s quests a lil early I was one daily away from those 1000 points and now looking at the points for this month I wonder is it truly worth it I mean I can earn more on bing than this!!!
    Not sure what you're on about. Not only was there an extra day this February over usual but it went til March 2nd. That's also not their fault if you missed by one day since it has like a weeks worth of leeway to get

    It wouldn't surprise me if the first couple or so months they are going to be doing a lot of nerfing and buffing in order to find a happy balance

    I am still not playing the game quests unless I really like them but will do the other daily and weekly quests if I have the time especially since they brought back the 1000 points for the monthly completionist quest.
  • Posted on 06 March 20 at 07:51
    Still barely worth the effort

    Most of them are still worth next to nothing, even some of the monthly quests. Screw it, I'm out. Uninstalling the mobile app now. Waste of time.
    Stoke me a clipper, I'll be back for Christmas... Whatever!

    It went extra but also started late.
    Wasn’t it exactly 28 days, 56 Daily quests.
    Thus a buffer of 11.

    Hello everyone,

    I was wondering if we can get the Rewards points without unlocking any achievements in the concerned games, this month?

    - Final Fantasy XV = Acquire 2,000 Gil
    - Black Desert = Earn 2,000 Gifted Sellswords
    - Kingdom Come: Deliverance = Collect 20 money
    - Terraria = Gather 1,000 resources

    For those 2 quests, I can tell you for sure you will unlock at least one achievement in Tekken since there's one for winning 1 ranked match. And for DOOM, I'm pretty sure you can get the quest without unlocking an achievement. The quest asks for '50 barrel kills', and there's an ach for '100 barrel kills', so there's room to get the quest.
    - TEKKEN 7 = Win 3 ranked matches
    - DOOM = Get 50 barrel kills

    Thanks for your replies.

    For the DOOM quest, just load up snapmap mode and play the map "64BarrelKills". Easy peasy.

    For Final Fantasy XV you’ll almost certainly unlock several in order to get 2000 gil. With that’s said it’s easy, a lady at your first garage gives you 1000, you can talk to the diner owners in order to sign up for hunts. Two hunts ought to get you the rest with gil to spare. You’ll want to play the combat tutorial before starting the game.

    Tekken 7, yes, I popped around 7 just playing 4 matches (won 3), however I checked, it’s an easy completion for a fighting game, I feel like almost any player could do it. It doesn’t seem like it’d take long either. I got nasty Live messages from someone I beat, so it’s standard fighting game community grossness it seems, but still, not a terrible one.

    Kingdom Come Deliverance is stingy as heck with its achievements, any fan may be able to tell you a place to run and steal something while avoiding any achievements. Personally I tried the first couple quests a few months ago for a Quest and thought it sucked too badly to finish, YMMV.

    DOOM, no, pretty sure you’ll pop one even on a custom map.

    Argh, I answered you with a long message but I messed up clicking a link, and all erased... I just said thanks for the replies, but except FF XV, I succeeded doing the other quests by testing first with a dummy account, and it worked without unlocking achs, so I did the same on my main profile.

    I'm not going to be getting that Terraria quest. Nothing is tracking in Terraria, I can't even get the achievement for starting the tutorial.
