Happy One Year Anniversary to the IG88 Quest bug!

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!

    How is it a bug then?

    If they added the word “Hoth” it would still do the same thing it does now.

    If you won a non-hoth territory battle, the battle would not count. The quest's description reads “Win 12 Battles with IG-88 in Territory Battles”. Last I checked, Geonosis is a Territory Battle as well.

    You attempt to do the quest as per it's instructions as described and it does not work = bug.

    At least if CG added the single word "Hoth", the quest would then work as described.

    To expensive

    But if it was beneficial to players, they'd have fixed it in about ten minutes, implemented in a week, and it wouldn't be "too expensive" to fix.

    If I bought a $ 10 pack, would that be enough to cover the cost of sending in Gary the intern to go to the excel file, press F2 and type in the word "Hoth"? Would the $ 20 pack do it? The $100 Hyperdrive pack?

    Imagine a multimillion dollar company actually fixing bugs 😂.

    We dont get content, QOL changes, bug fixes or even a basic amount of communication.
    It seems the devs intentionally s*** all over one of the largest IPs ever because it's on on of the most profitable platforms ever.

    Welcome to bug-free world

    Yes, unfortunately, IG-88 quest does not work in Geo TB. It had been so long since I actually tried to finish this Quest due to this.

    Wondering if any of you fellow BH quest enthusiasts can help make sure I don't waste this week away from my main guild.

    1) Do the BH Special missions count towards the quest?
    2) Can you think of any reason today's P1 mission did not count?

    Again, I only need 4 more battles and was hoping to complete this time around so any advice from your experiences would be greatly appreciated.

    Try again on P2 and make video showing run. It will be easier to help. Before run show the quest status, and then show it again after the run with IG88 so we can compare

    I will Definitely film (auto will only take a min anyways for the run). I am wondering if it had something to do with me attacking within the first minute of TB being open. A glitch of the game not recognizing the battle. We will see!
