I feel Cryptic should extend the Aug 2nd deadline for the Risian Corvette by two weeks to accommodate those unfortunate players that were denied 2 weeks worth of daily racing due to the glitch.

What say you all?

This one was not undone by mere taking off your floater and slapping it back in place, or even changing instances.
My problem was I had to do 3 out of 4 courses, but I only had 2 of them appear.

Never found a third that day and I looked on the map and looked by flying around.

Dropped the Mission as I said and the next day I had again 4 courses to chose from.

they can't seem to make up thier minds. if the map runs to the 15, logicly flying high should two.
Everywhere I look, people are screaming about how bad Cryptic is.
What's my position?
That people should know what they're screaming about!

Those small number of players as the patch note state, should be given some kind of accommodation for it. As I stated at the beginning, it was up to two weeks that these small amounts of players were effected.

In the spirit of fair gameplay, Cryptic should extend the deadline by two weeks, afterall the vessel is free, its not like they are going to lose money or something.
If you carefully read the TOS statement, you will find a little clause stating that Cryptic is not responsible for games bugs...

There was a case years ago where 'Train Up' didn't work for BO skill training, and I wasted several expensive BOs purchased off of the Exchange because of this... I asked for compensation for the lose due to the 'bug' and didn't get it...

If they changed their 'policy' just for this event, it would set a bad precedent, and open up a big can of worms over bug compensation...

I take it you don't have a job or a family to raise? No offense - but doing it by the exact numbers and calculations as you put it is near impossible for the normal citizen that works 40hrs a week and have a family.

Its a great thing if you are a kid at home and on summer vacation though.

Its wrong because?

Seriously; It is pointless to say "its wrong to extend," and the only reason people have to say no, is because they did it in the prescribed time and never once glitched out, so now they feel they are entitled to something that was basically given for free to begin with.

35 days to complete it take off 14 days for 2 weeks it was messed up. multiple 24 hour 21 days 504 hours divided by 20 = 25.2 chances to run the mission multiply by the 40 pearls it rewards 1008 pearls and that's with no other pearls added like via lobi store.

So you believe that doing something to improve customer satisfaction and correct a game error (not customer error) sets a bad precedent for the company? I hope a marketing career is not in your future plans...

If my math is correct, any player effected by this would not be able to receive a corvette (35 Days - 14 Days (June 27 (launch) - July 10 (fix) = 21 Days ... short of the minumum 25 days needed to obtain the requisite number of pearls. (Short by 160)

The issue was a glitch/bug/what not that was out of the players control.... for that reason alone, I will agree with the OP that the event should be extended, by 7 days (not 2 weeks, although I see the logic)... 7 days adds sufficient time to make up the shortfall, assuming you and the others effected have made an effort to continue to do the mission daily once it was fixed.
