It would seem that this issue has either been forgotten about, put on the back burner, or they just can't fix it. I've had this problem since the game came out. I've sent tickets, edited tickets to remind them that the issue persists. The response I was given is that it is known and that my assumed patience was appreciated. We'll, I was patient, but it is starting to wear thin. It seems that a bug like this really can't take to much to fix. Here is some psuedocode:
IF playerLevel >= 1 (Lieutenant)
THEN mission.tutorials = dropable
I like this game, I really do. But sloppiness like this is really disheartening.
