IT's HERE 3.15 is dropping today!

We are all set back to 0 in reputation and everything.

Now is the time to grind our way back up to the top, and what's a good way to do that other than a friendly competition.

In this forum, let's keep track of some of these things:

  • Max out the individual reputation chains you can do.
    • Crusader Security
    • Bounty Hunter guild
    • Hurston Security
    • Northrock Service Group
    • Ect.
  • First to max out all friendly mission givers
  • First to max out all criminal mission givers
  • First to max out them all!
  • First to Spawn the Idris
  • The first group to kill the Irdis
  • First to CS5
  • Top Call to Arm kill count
  • most UEc gained farming in a TEST party
Toss up your screenshot when you reach these goals to show off your MIGHT!

I got the idris to pop last night but forgot to get a screenshot :D

Anyone make it to CS5 yet
In that case you can add the guys from CFT from Saturday because we killed 2 Idris one after the over since I had unlocked the mission with you some days before (mission popped 2 times), and I killed the Idris solo with T9 also after SC and drinks last week some time after you left when we finished the Arlington chain :) No screen though.

Did not saw it was an objective :)

And we stole an Idris yesterday night again ;) we used it to chain the 87k group missions from Eckard hehehe popping hammerheads in one shot.

The missions aren't broken, you are too impatient.

What happens is that you are too early at the location.
1. There is a mission marker.
2. Eventually the target will spawn, but the mission marker won't move over it.
3. When you wait long enough, then the escorts will spawn.
4. Once the escorts spawn, the mission marker will go over the target.
5. Then you are free to kill it.

However
You see the mission marker, you will fly towards it, the target will spawn, it will attack you and you will kill it... then the mission becomes broken. You must stay out of range of the target and wait until the mission marker is over it before you may kill the target.

There is a good work around:
Fly to 16 km from the target and wait until the mission marker is over it. This can take up to 5 minutes in a slow server. That is a lot of coffee drinking.

There also is a good workaround for this:
Queue up missions, at least 2.
While you wait for the first mission to spawn, the second already is spawning. The waiting can take up to 5 minutes.
Once you complete the first mission, target the second mission, but also select a third mission.
You don't have to wait so long anymore for the second mission to spawn. At slow servers, it sometimes takes 10 - 20 seconds.

At fast servers, you don't have to wait at all. I had one this afternoon. 2 people in the instance.
