Re: [New] Bug report topic

I've had 2 weapons for a while now (not the bog standard Cato's or Dawn's - Virtual Future and Oni) that originally advertised themselves as valid for Region 31-33 (yes 33), on checking after you mentioned the above shock horror they have been reduced to the same damage as the Region 32 advertised (eg Fishbone).

Poses the question is will they be useful ONLY for the very first level then it's go on the hunt (or get your CC card out which GL prefer the route) again?
Turns out I wasn't just old and grumpy - I was right to be p!ssed right off!

Region weapon adverts and adjustments

.
To be clear, there's a couple of things going on here:
a. weapon adjustments
b. false advertising

A. Weapon adjustments
No shock horror here in terms of weapon adjustments - your observations are consistent with mine (please keep up the sarcasm - we both have to retain sanity here)... These weapon adjustments you mention were made some time ago - well before the current update distraction (UPD49) in my observations. It's always curious that the numbers (and/or region usefulness) seem to get rounded down not up.

Scope of post explanation
I'd been waiting for the advertisements to pop up again so I could screen pic them to do the post. I kept the scope of that post (above) carefully targetted to the advertisement principles only mainly because the weapons are different for every player (depending on where they are in the game at the point they acquired the weapon) - this means the weapon adjustments observed might be different also. So... leaving the (potentially complex and perhaps confusing to some) descriptions of weapon adjustments aside (and making a more generic (wider sweeping post) seemed to be a simpler approach. (I'm confident this complexity and variation is deliberate - so that situations like this become more difficult and people just give up rather than trying to explain it).

B. False advertising - another example
My favourite incongruence is when the in-game adverts say that weapons are "good for next 3 regions". So I buy the weapon (in good faith) on the stated premis**. Then (when I look) it's just another R32 weapon to add to the many other R32 weapons I own under dust and it is certainly not "good for next 3 regions". Reference:
viewtopic.php?f=2031&t=711608&p=4118092#p4118092

** In this case my (obviously very incorrect) assumption was that "good for next 3 regions" actually meant what it said: good for (the) next three regions - i.e. I have completed R32, so I would purchase a weapon good for R33, R34 & R35 (which are "next 3 regions")..

There is a gear and weapon combo currently advertised but I can not see what is advertised in the shop (I can't buy it because I can't see it in the shop.

I already own the weapon. I do not own the gear.

Again there is an in-game advertisement for Arena Gear and a Weapon but I can not see the offer in the shop. I own the weapon already but not the gear.

Hollow Victory screens

Thu Apr 22, 2021 10:25 pm
.
Whenever you put a strip advertisement on this screen (see point 1. on attached screen pic) I get no recognition of my victory and a blank set of details (see point 2. on the attached screen pic).

The advertising appearing on this screen might an extreme coincidence (with the hollow victory) but after 2 years of this happening you would think someone might have found it in testing.
