Minor rant.. more a sort of message to the Dev team to please TRY to avoid this sort of thing. So anyway yesterday I logged in and headed to Metal Gotham to do my weekly and daily missions. So I spot a rift and it has a mob of 2 or 3 standing next to it. Close enough that I know at some point I'll get attacked when I move in to click. Now since some rifts do break into as many as F O U R more rifts that are on a timer if you want to click and claim them I tend to defeat the mobs before I click the rift. HEY I am also working on 218 metal men defeated so why not take out those 2-3 guys and get at LEAST one rift right? Then it happens... while I am taking out the metal men some other player jumps in and click on the rift. Oh sure I still got credit for 3 more metal affected NPCs but no credit at all for that rift. In other words as the title says I played TANK and cleared the area so some one else could get credit for closing a rift. This same scenario happens in Atlantis on the Propaganda mission. I have lost track of how many times I have cleared out 2-3 MOBS around those view screens only to discover some other player snuck in and clicked the screen while I was defeated Drift troops. It's even worse there because there is no "defeat X number of enemy troops" mission in Atlantis so you wind up battling 3,6 even as many as 9 NPC to clear the area around a screen and then get NO CREDIT for shutting off said screen. Now IF this sort of thin happened once or twice not a huge deal but yesterday I had 5 or 6 rifts in a row where I was defeating the mobs while some one else claimed the rift and I lost track of exactly how many times it happened altogether. YEAH YEAH I know.. suck kit up its all a part of the game.. Yeah but I PAY my monthly sub to PLAY the game and do MY missions not play distraction so some one else can complete theirs. So DEVs how about in the future we try a little harder to keep things a little further apart?
