    Why is it that you can skip the into to mission on the 1st day and then Have o listen to it every time after.
    I've noticed this happening the last few events.
    If anything seem like it should be the other way around.
    Required to listed to it the 1st time, and then be able to skip it every day after

    Hmmm I noticed that today as well. No clue I sort of assumed it was just a glitch

    The first day is says a lot more - subsequent days he says less

    I wish all he did was say "thank you"... oh wait...

    Which is why we should be able to skip the subsequent drivel

    And it's not just with this even butt every Seasonal: the DEVs messed up when they introduced that skip-chat feature

    Two different missions and so probably they need to be enabled for skipping individually.

    It's... not a different mission though, just the giver gives a different 'speech' after the first time (and each and every time thereafter), which is where things seem messed up: can skip the 'unique' first mission drivel, butt not the repeatable repeated mission drivel

    It is a different mission.

    The longer version is part of the one time mission you get automatically when the event is activated. It sends you to Hal (he has a question mark, and you don't accept the next part, it just continues), gives you the Mera mission (new this year but separate mission), sends you out to Gotham, and when you are done with the 5 crystal it directs you to queue for the boss battle. Once it is done the daily is unlocked.

    The shorter version is connected to the daily that must be picked up from Hal. that only sends you out into Gotham. And yes you can do the daily on first day right after you do the main mission for an extra 3 hearts, but you have to go pick it up from Hal.

    Okay, haven't done this event yet, butt that doesn't change the fact we can skip the first part butt not the rest, when it should be the other way around

    I agree, but things don't just change according what makes sense. I recall a time when some of the Booster Gold exploration scenes were skip-able when others were not (before that none of them were). Recently I did them on a new character and they were all skip-able. The logical assumption is that each scene has to be set up to be skip-able. I don't know if they have a system that is as easy as ticking a box or if it requires actually rewriting code, but it seems that each scene requires individual attention either way.

    It would be nice to have a response but it is unlikely a change will happen before the event ends this year.

    Really can't see what the difference between the initial mission-giving scene and the followup: you are in the WatchTower (or Hall of Dolphins) with Jordan waffling on until he runs out of steam and you are able to run away from His Royal Greenness
    During the Christmas Event, would simply tab-out and do something else while the Lanterns blathered on about how Larf was nicking all the pressies

    All seasonals are like this now.

    I understand not being able to skip lots of these scenes in an instance, but just a dude giving a mission. A mission we run yearly. This needs changed, please, or just leave it and fix PvP. :)
