Ok this is the third mission now that the NPC's havent turned up, ive already lost enough standings when i have to cancel the mission.

seems all deadspace missions are broken, ive tried new Patch.. Nothing. Tried logging off and logging back in, still dont work!

looks like ill try the missions again when CCP actually finnally release exodus.

BTW deadspace is lame, stops alot of ship setups from working, and it seems like a lame way to stop you runing away when the sh!t hits the fan.

Seems CCP are coming up with desperate ways to make more Cash sinks in eve.

Aye, I've been having the same problems with my kill missions.... warp to the deadspace area, and no NPCs or structures are around. If you don't want to lose standings, best thing to do is to file a petition.

And in the meantime... no more Agent kill missions =(

Anyone else been experiencing this?

Same here.

But after clean eve installation 2942+2945patch, I have this weird theory (TM) :)

My missions worked nicely in low populated system, but in Rens (~80 ppl in local), empty kill mission locations (got deadspace missions only).

Is this a trend, that in highly populated areas, missions aren't working as well as in quiet systems?

Happened to me last night for the first time, working fine untill then. Warped in and no pirates, logged off and went to bed, came back today and there was the spawn.

CCP should withdraw all deadspace missions until they fix it.

I thought that bughunting was done on Shiva.
But it's clear that CCP was in such a hurry to bring out Exodus that they couldn't iron out these things that are popping up now. So in a sense the way missions work became worse again than Castor and we have to wait several weeks/months till they get to fix this.

Just implement these two simple fixes and this will buy the Devs more time to fix the whole missions part.

Remove the MWD nerf in deadspace. The NPC's use MWD so in terms of that PC's should be able to use MWD as well. Pherhaps there could be a penalty on MWD'ing that you only get 80% of you MWD speed due to deadspace territorial disturbances.
Allow gangwarp to and in deadspace and near installations. If lvl 4 are for teams they should be able to work together as well.

well had the same problem twice, and both times found a fix
- one time i accepted the mission in another ship then the one i used to do the mission in. Didn't find the npc's, warped back, changed ships to the original (a badger), flew over and bookmarked the spot. Changed to my killer ship again and warped to the bm
- second time was today. tried everything (repackaging ship, changing ship, talking to agent again) but closing eve and restarting it fixed it : npc's where there

last night at 12 ( midnight ) i did npc hunting for 6 hours in lumin. from fed navy agent 7-6 lvl 3. and each and every deadspace mission was there,..

in local one person had a prob but got it fixed next time you do a mission make sure u click accept. i know it sounds easy but its easy to make mistakes,...

doing a lvl 3 deadspace mission takes time, it can be done. im doing lvl 3 solo in a domi with all my low's with hard or rep, its scary when i go up against dread missle npc but other than that i handle most of it fine. ( ps: dont use blasters )

Same for me no npc for 2 missions filed a petition for the first they gave me my lose of standing back and canceled the 2nd that i was in the middle of since no npc. I tried logging, changing ships, warping from all locations jumping in and out of the system even waiting till next day no luck. Also for the 2nd mission i did have the hotfix installed before accepting and it didn't work. There response was:

I have cleared the mission, and repaired any damaged standings of yours. Your agent should offer you a new mission if you talk to him again. Still, it would perhaps be advisable to wait untill the problems associated with missions, before doing more missions. In any case please let us know if you run into any further trouble. Take care and enjoy Exodus :)

Well I've found leaving an hour or so inbetween accepting the mission and going to the bookmark helps, it's had a chance to spwan or something I guess, so I go rat hunt for a bit. Though it does mean I miss out on bonus awards Sad as if not being able to use a mwd does it matter?

I swear no one on this game can addapt to find a new setup, hell I use rails and long range, their mwdin and lack of mine hurt to but i've got around it and I'm sure you blaster pilots can too, if u put as much time to thinking as you do to moaning! Twisted Evil sorry its been bugging me Razz

Mine all went fine until last nite
Then 3 dead missions NOTHING......

I lost 0.7 in all in 3 missions in standing with agent

Some say come back tommorow to try
Well rewards suck enough now Eve screwed up so I am not only loseing standings but loseuing what little rewards they do give

I have not had one trade and at 13k points....
And by what i heard from what getting offered not missing nothing...

You geta mission bunch of ships only ships leave loot is small ships which means crap loot

I can see making harder on ships that fine but lets see
No rats in dead space you lose rateing and no missions
You get mission with rats to work you get crap for loot
You get carrier you get crap for bonus
You build up mission points you get crap offers

hmmm seems only thing they done was make rats harder to kill that is any good out of missions

I agree with the statement but for different reasons:

1. Firstly as an aside to those still having trouble with the Mission Bookmarks -they are likely to be hidden in your Places - you used to be able to find them all as "Mission ..." however now I was opening a new folder "Agent Missions" but having the BMs appear in one of my other folders - this is probably a bug to do with the People&Places GUI as it was always had problems (e.g. moving BM's and scrolling list to get to the right place to drop it in but different BM is then moved, etc etc)

2. Secondly the mission loot is still borked, for instance we killed a Gist General and it dropped nothing Mad, probably because this is a new NPC and no entry exists for it in the separate Agent Mission loot table

3. Thirdly there are issues with the kill missions that make them hard Embarassed such as having new waves of elite NPCs spawn right on top of you - if you try and warp out straight away you won't make it, even in a multi-player gang it seems that the player they spawn on will lose their ship before the gang can take the spawn out or at least reduce it to a tankable level ugh I am not saying the missions are impossible just that the missions are demanding + expensive in terms of losses + munitions, and you may learn some hard lessons while working out effective configurations and tactics. Note in some ways these NPC fleets can be harder than fighting player fleets - no advance warning from local, simultaneous enemy "warp in", NPCs of same ship/class have identical name so can't call individual targets, etc ... So my advice is, no matter how big you gang is, or how many 20+million skill point characters you have in it, do not attempt level 4 kill missions unless you are prepared to lose your ship and mods Wink

Honestly,i think CCP are pulling the same stunt they did a year ago with the introduction of Castor and the insane NPC spawns in 0.0 until they were toned down a bit later on...Essentially thining out the BS population by any means possible.ugh


The same thing is happening with lvl 4 missions right now,specifically those that happen in deadspace,which even if they did work,they're so geared towards the destruction of even multiple BS mission runners working as a team that it isn't even funny anymore..Rolling Eyes.

I also have the idear then deadspace in densly populated systems is way more likely to go wrong. did many deadspace missions in lowly poulated systems with no problems

I do not mind the missions being a bit harder, or forcing me to try new setups.. but then i have only flown up to level 3 missions so..

Heared a lot of people are farming the deadspace missions.. by not killing the main struckture (or even most strucktures) thety get an endless supplie of a certain enemy. I do not think this is how it was ment, and I do think it contibutes to the problems others have with deadspace missions.

Time seems to clear up the no spawn problem somtimes. Not sure if it has to do with the bonus timer running out because it's always like 30-45 minutes and I'll go check one more time and they'll be there.

I've failed two deadspace missions and completed about 15.

All level 3.

Level 4 missions I'm not touching until we get an answer about the warp in probs and excessive damage from the NPCs.

I wish I had a 5x damage mod for my missles :(
