    In the context of the Metal storyline, all the Lantern Corps are united towards the same goal, just as all the other heroes and villains are fighting together, against their mutual enemy Perpetua.

    So the situation isn't like it is in the early Lantern DLCs, when the various Corps were often, though not always, in conflict.

    Digressively, but for the record, I'm not at all a fan of this whole Metal comic storyline, and am heartily glad it's done -- I think it overworked the "the threat must be EVEN BIGGER" trope to the point of being ridiculous -- but that's me.

    I may be being misunderstood. The weeklies are tied to helping out their respective icon five times. So after the fifth day, you can turn in the mission to the terminal and you get a special, quick mission that gives out 3 marks. Once you turn in this mission, the terminal immediately allows you to get the next five-day mission.
    Technically, I can skip 2 days and still finish the 5-day mission before reset. That's why I think it doesn't force me to run the dailies everyday of the week to get the extra mission.

    Well youre not being forced whatsoever, but for the most efficient progress you have to do them each day since the missions are immediately acceptable again after completion.

    I actually like that it resets immediately. In the past, I have forgotten to go back to these terminals when reset day comes and I end up being left out on these bonus missions or ending up with inconsistent numbers for each mission.

    Plus. I tend to look at it this way: On the third week I get to do 2 of these missions per terminal.

    Have seen Red Death under the dirt..ok I stood on top of him. No damage for either of us..he wasn't going to be killable.

    Thanks for the report! I've submitted a fix that I hope should prevent this from happening (once the hotfix makes it to the live server). If you see it in the future, after that patch, please let us know.

    The bonus mission terminals were not there at all yesterday in any phase. Was trying to show them to a leaguemate and they were gone. I don't know why. These really should be near the spawn area.
  9. Cadavern Developer

    Let me check on that for you. I believe they were all actually moved closer to the central hub

    Good news!

    You're right. They're right around the Lincoln monument now.

    Well then, since I already had them, I didn't see the icon at the spawn place.
  12. Hraesvelg Always Right

    Ha, same here. That's why I was on my, um, brightly colored alt.

    Sorry about that! Yes, those quest givers were moved, so, for anyone looking for them, they'll be around the Lincoln Memorial for quicker access. As well, a change for the Lantern Bonus Mission is on its way out, so it'll be colorfully cohesive, soon.

    Yep to this! Every toon I play on is missing one job from launch because of this; and as the days roll on, i keep seeing 2/5 3/5 3/5 and it's driving me mental. Thanks for moving them!

    Question. Even if not possible for this episode, if we are going for the bucket missions (5\5) and then extra mission to get loot, can we see what loot we are getting and not have it being empty? It's really confusing and I thought I am getting nothing for completing the 5 missions on daily basis. The message is just empty so It's kinda makes you think you will get nothing.

    Just personal thoughts!

    The downed lanterns for the weekly mission are getting separated from their activation icons. Apparently some of the UV lantern's attacks are giving the downed lanterns knockbacks and moving them away from the clickable cross that lets you interact with them. Usually it's not too far, but sometimes the lantern won't be anywhere near the icon.

    Also think there should be a few more of the lanterns for this mission. I've had to swap phases to find enough active to finish this one.

    Bad news about the Luthor fix: I’m getting subtitles now, but I still can’t hear him.

    The text at the end of one of the 5/5 missions says return to the Washington Monument. But the mission giver has been moved to the Lincoln Memorial. You might want to update the text.
