Thank you - full upgrade of Mk1 required

Not from GL staff or developers. Rather, a comment from a moderator that has primary contact with GL staff. From Discord:

"Yes. You can own the weapon by winning it, but it has to be fully upgraded, before stage two starts
I´m pretty sure it was different in the past cascade events.. there you have to upgrade the weapon fully to be able to play mission 5 in chapter 10

i´m sure, that there will be a wave of tickets to customer care because the users didn´t realize it ^^
What will again make the CC slow down in answering tickets
just for info @Lina [GL] 
It´s an selfmade and unnecessary ticket wave
would be interesting, to see stats for exactly that.."

.
Thank you for posting GWD - very much appreciated. Also nice (occasionally) to see that I'm not the only one. 

This particular example (quoted above) is pretty much exactly what I was thinking. I'm someone who has had several unresolved tickets with cc dating back to August last year in one case (and one even earlier that I've just written off) - so anything poised to bog down cc (similar to the way the inaugural three stage event - Bounty Cascade - errors were handled) gets me a little twitchy.

Too late :D

It does have to be fully upgraded to get the MK2 for the next stage;

"When STAGE 2 is available, your weapon will be converted to GUNPOINT MK2 if you own a fully upgraded GUNPOINT MK1"

So still following the 3 stage event template there, hopefully....

Thank you.

Maybe the Android and Windows versions have different help info.

Doesn't say anything about it having to be fully upgraded to convert it. Going to leave it where it's at and see what happens. Got a few hours to keep collecting parts.

Will be interested to hear back from you to see how this goes.

See above in thread for screen pics of little pop ups indicating full upgrade requirements. I will swear these were not there a few days ago (on the Android version anyway). The notifications are there now - noting that an update was pushed through (that may or may not have been the thing that changed the availability of this somewhat stealthy relevant information).

Reference for update:

And finally, this message from a Discord moderator on the present topic:

"[12:23] Sir ITzN™: People on steam that by mistake couldn´t fully upgrade the MK1, were able to upgrade to MK2!
[12:23] Sir ITzN™: That is totally against the written rules..
[12:25] Sir ITzN™: For what are we talking to guys again and again, that they have to upgrade the weapon.. when it finally isn´t the case?
[12:25] Sir ITzN™: For what are we doing senseless work?
[12:25] Sir ITzN™: I know sure better ways to waste my time @Lina [GL]
[12:26] Sir ITzN™: Is that really intended?(edited)

Just to have that question here saved too.

Re: [Name TBA by Decker] 3 Stage Event

Shifting sands
So here we are in Stage 2 and it's called Mirage - and the name of the entire event changed with the stage. Go figure.

Naming rights
Decker - because you started the thread you get to name this three stage event (in accordance with forum tradition - we've been here before). Better be good or I'll get that bag shipped over.  ;)

Upgrade requirements
I already maxed the scope out so I can confirm these are: 9/14/19/24/29. Deputy better put her suit into the dry cleaners and be ready for duty.

Screen pics for the record.

Incongruence between platforms?

Interesting GWD - thanks for sharing.

Hate to say it, but I was suspicious when:
1. I couldn't find the reference to the fully upgraded requirement then an update got snuck in and all of a sudden I could find the reference to the requirement.
2. The event template did not force a full upgrade (as it has in every other three stage event).

The real proof in the pudding will be when we hear back from jpeterson12, only then will we know if this cluster is across different platforms.

The horse has bolted now anyway (no point crying over spilt milk and all that) so we might as well just get on with it. Good luck to those who got away with it - no resentment here.

Now all we have to is get an opportunity to play the game. Our server is having anuerisms again. Can only stay connected intermittently then when trying again it's hanging at 66% load and/or spitting out error: glatg_11 .

Thank you jp - response very much appreciated.

(I'll be over in the corner crying over all those collector parts I blew through for nothing.... think I'll contact cc to see if they will refund me some  :D .)
