Has anyone found a workaround for the first part of the mission yet? I see some people saying they made it past the gates but so far it seems no matter what I do I can't get the gatekeeper to spawn after the first battle. Some have said if you die after this and respawn eventually the gatekeeper will spawn also but I have yet to see this happen.
This saddens me as I went thru all of the FED side missions with no real glitches at all, even though now people are saying on the FED side the Night of the Comet mission is so bugged that you've got about a 1 in 20 chance of getting all the comet fragments to show up so they can be destroyed.
I blame all of this on the patch on the 20th....I know some of these bugs have been traced back to before this but since this last patch it seems like these bugs have suddenly become viral and are now affecting far more people and/or occurring almost everytime someone plays a mission.
It seems to be pure dumb luck which NPCs avoid the bug - I've had the gatekeeper survive to open the gates once out of about 5 attempts. None of my BOffs ever made it off the Barge though.
I'll admit to getting a teensy little bit annoyed with this. It's been almost a week, this has been reported left, right and centre by multiple people and is (or at least appears to be) a game breaking bug. So much as a 'we're working on it'? Nope, but hey guys, look at the new lockbox...
(I'm aware the people working on the lockbox probably aren't the same people that would be working on the maps/physics engine and that linking the new boxes and the bug is probably unfair as a result. Doesn't make it any less offensive that Cryptic/PWE are angling for more money while staying silent about how the game was seriously broken in the last patch, so I'm going to do it anyway).
Same issue here, all my away team disappear and there is no gate opener. This is seriously disgusting, especially since so many people have complained and there's been no response from administration or Imperfect World on this.
