Happy One Year Anniversary to the IG88 Quest bug!
On this day, June 27, 2019, the first Geonosis Territory Battle was released. It was filled promise, rewards and all kinds of fun stuff but it had a dark side (pun intended).
It was hard. I mean really hard. Back in those days, we didn’t have G13 or relics so most of the time, your G12+ toons would get their butt kicked. People complained but the rewards where awesome and with time we all got better at it. (Special shout out to MΔW & Team Instinct for being the first & second guilds to reach 33 stars and beat DS Geo TB!)
DS Geo TB was however, hiding a secret, a terrible one. A non-Geonosian bug if you will. On that day, people who were working on the Bounty Hunter Quest 3/7, commonly known as the IG-88 Quest came across something odd.
The quest’s description clear states “Win 12 Battles with IG-88 in Territory Battles” yet something was wrong. Beating a Geonosian territory battle didn’t increase the tally! A bug was born on that day.
People reported it on the forums, on reddit and of course on the EA Answers HQ with the same answer. “Bug has been already reported. Thanks!”
Noticing the unfairness of the situation, I took it upon myself to suggested a simple fix. For the for the past year, my suggestion was posted in the forums, on reddit, during the dev’s Q&As…. How expensive can adding a simple word to the quest’s description be?
“Win 12 Battles with IG-88 in -Hoth- Territory Battles” *POOF* the bug would be gone but alas….silence.
Now, one year later, that same bug still exists. Happy One Year Anniversary IG-88 Quest bug! I hope I see you again next year!
