Decline button returns?

Post by TheHappyLion » Thu May 11, 2017 18:15

Why the fuck am I seeing the decline button again? Also, why am I only getting the daily big AD rewards from just one skirmish instead of two? Who the fuck is programming this trash game?

Yup the decline button has returned to several chests (CN and elol being two I can think of). Not every chest has the bug, since etos is not bugged. It does seem very odd.

Did you open both chests?

Just the one. This is indicative of a serious version control problem.

Quite likely something like that, yes. It's not the first time either. SOMI weekly lost some of the rewards too.

99% sure the underdark ring changes were reverted as well, those dropped like candy for 2-3 weeks. Could have been on purpose though. We did an mdemo farm for +5 rings, 10 runs, 10 people, 200 chances, no orange rings.

Saying that the drop rates were reverted or that they proc on companions was reverted?

FOR REAL?

Can you guys outline the affected dungeons and chests?

Is it not using the keys upon decline, or do they get used up?

I did not decline for fear of getting banned for exploiting.

This was going to be my exact question, if you decline does it still consume the key?

It does not use the keys when you decline, although because the dungeon I tested it on used an epic chest key, I ended up re-opening the chest and accepting the rewards after declining a few times, which then did use a key. The rewards were not re-rolled thankfully... because that would be only extremely major and game breaking.

I've encountered this only on epic chests, not 2nd chests (that take a LDK).

Confirmed same behavior as deathtzarr reported.

Definitely in CN. I think also in eCC and eGWD.

I didn't even think it was worth noting because I only encountered it on epic chests. But this. This is money right here, because UD keys are finite.

Can you confirm that the keys aren't spent on declines in PoM and Throne?

The one time i did do it it did not consume the key, however, this may not be related but when i ran it a second time the chest was unavailable to open, but i still had the key.

Either way this is a complete pain in the ass, seems as though more shit is breaking as per the usual after every single patch.

If you don't leave the instance for PoM before queuing for PoM again, the chest cannot be opened after the second run (even if you do not open it at all in the first run).

I ain'the touching that mystery decline button.
Does anyone here trust Cryptic not to arbitrarily ban us for using a button they faced up and activated?
"Sure, it was our mistake. But you knew we didn't want you to decline so... BAN."
