# 1 DOFF Missions seem to dry up
10-10-2011, 01:24 PM
im CDR7 now, and i've noticed the DOFF missions in most sectors drying up...i used to be able to fill the 20 Commendation slots most days (though with carryover from 12-72hr missions) now im lucky to find 2 missions in a zone that is under 2 hours...

is this somthing intentional or is it a bug of sorts?

Very, very few assignments are actually gated by level, so while I am not sure what is happening in this case, it is exceedingly unlikely it has anything to do with level.

Are there particular sectors you are in at the moment that you are noticing this with?

I've been seeing this lately too, especially during busier hours. Is everybody in a sector/region grabbing DOff assignments from a central pool, or are they randomly generated for each person?

I've have been experiencing this lately as well, here are the following "sectors" I have notice problems with:
  • Ship
  • Sirius
  • Regulus
  • Earth Space Dock
  • Star Fleet Academy
  • Sol System
  • Alpha Centaur
  • Pi Canis

The other sectors seem to have a bunch and I primarily stroll through those above so I just thought I had used up most of the missions. I do think we need way more shipboard assignments. There are times I have completed all that I could and times I only have four or five.

For sectors, what if the refresh was set to every two hours, but a mission did not get kicked off unless it has sat for four hours?

For shipboard I would actually suggest increasing the potential number of assignments (perhaps even double) and do a similar system with the refresh/kick off except make it 1hr and 4hrs respectively.

I know for me I was in sirus and regulus last night and both places had about... 12 missions up for the sector and about 3 I could do the rest said they were restricted due to me being to low of a level.

If there is a place to send you a screen heritic I can.

Imageshack it and PM me the link, if you could.

Are you sure the restrictions were level gated, or were there other reasons? (There are a lot of reasons you can not do an assignment, and level gates are actually very rare.)

Regulus, Serius and Eta Eridani, as well as Sol and ESD/Academy. these were areas i used primaryily to fill my Off ship missions up to 20, supplementing w/ Alpha Centauri and Cardassian sectors.

lately, especially within SFA/ESD and Sol/Sirius sectors there seems to be very few missions, and about 1 out of every 10 is level restricted. I thought at first it was because id done so many short missions (under 4 hrs) that was the reason i could not find anything under that for the officers i deemed to valuable for extended missions.

As of now, in regulus, i have plentiful missions, and several just came up that only take 5-45 minutes, but i have 3 level lovked, and 5 diplomatic missions that are 24-72 hrs in length. since i've got almost half my off-ship mission slots occupied with 24-72hr missions, i was looking for more short duration missions to fill the gap.

I'm haveing the same issues, across most all sectors.

I can't recruit from Starfleet Aca. I have maybe two missions in sirius, and only 2 ship missions. The same goes across Regulas, Alpha centuri.

Also I am noticing an incresing number of missions asking for Doffs that I don't have, such as a bartender, or prisoneer.

i've never even gotten a prisoner. . . refugees, colonists yes, as well as entertainer and chef, no bartender yet either, but i fingure, with so many different types of DOFFS, it'll come.

Far as the entertaining mission goes...i think the rewards a little low for using up half dozen DOFF and 40K creds, im fine with the diplo XP, i know the amounts for that are intetnionally low, but there should be some other reward IMO.

Also the resupply mission....15K plus credits worth or stuff, rewards seem a bit tame, i mean, thats a lot of credits, and im finidng cred hunting to be a bit on the rare side as of late (not sure why though...)

also...havent been able to find any contraband... ><
