Road To, Gothfather, and I just got kicked from my war wall defender mish after the status indicator said we had saved the 3 machines, and had 5 engineers left to rescue. We got no indication why it failed. What's wrong? Is it a bug?
The response I got:
Thank you for contacting the City of Heroes support team. It is possible that a wandering patrol attacked one of the machines which would have caused the mission to fail. This could have happened without you realizing it and is often a common cause of this mission failing. Currently this mission is working as designed but we do apologize for the frustration that this issue has caused. Please contact us if you have any further questions or problems.
OK, so why does the mission indicator make it look like you're "safe" on those machines, then? At least my petition got me the badge, as well as that response. This is now the second mish where I've had trouble with (basically) the status text in the nav bar. Which, for a game with so much content, and at level 35 out of 50, really isn't too bad, I guess. It just frustrated the heck out of me the night it happened (Tuesday? Wednesday? I forget). C'est la vie.
