Patch Notes 2/10/09

COMBINED Tasks

          o Fixed a bug that caused unlocked or automatically assigned Contacts to give players story arcs before the players talked to them, and without updating the storyarc UI.

Rewards

          o Added completion rewards of Influence/Infamy and XP to many story arcs that were missing them since the introduction of Merit rewards.

Merit Rewards

          o All tasks have had their Merit times and rewards re-evaluated. Most tasks received an increase to merits reward.
          o Failing a mission that is the final (or only) mission of a story arc, task force, strike force or trial may result in reduced rewards. Failing tasks that have 2 or less missions will award 0 merits. Failing tasks that have 3-4 missions will award 50% merits. Failing a task that has 5 or more missions will result in normal merits.

Chat

          o Fixed a bug that sometimes caused private tells to be cut off at either end.
          o Fixed a bug that sometimes caused global channels Arena & Help text to be cut off at either end.

Something seem a bit off?
Failing a mission that is the final (or only) mission of a story arc, task force, strike force or trial may result in reduced rewards. Failing tasks that have 2 or less missions will award 0 merits. Failing tasks that have 3-4 missions will award 50% merits. Failing a task that has 5 or more missions will result in normal merits.

Does this mean starting a Dr. Q running 1 mission then quiting will net the full merits?
But running the entire thing short of 1 mission will get you nothing?

**EDIT**
I started a mender silos tf heroside, ran first mission, no rewards

You are reading the note wrong.

What they are saying is they have introduced reduced rewards. If you fail the final mission you receive reduced rewards depending on how many missions there are in said arc/tf. I'm sure there was an exploit out there where people were starting a arc/tf doing a few missions then purposefully failing the last to get the merits quicker.
