    Quest: Public Quest - Love Will Lead You Back
    Issue: Multiple people reporting no full participation reward despite fully participating for the past few days. This is based on number of coins received (1 coin/2 for members) and not on other items. It seems to be random if you get full participation or little to no participation, even if you do the same thing every time.

    I'm pretty sure now I can only get a proactive crate the first time I do it on an alt, this has been the case on 4 of my alts already, after that it's active crate even if I click my little hands off doing roses, killing attackers and smooshing purple roses

    Please devs, look into what happened to the code for this PQ, because it's a waste of time now, I can get 2 Erollisi coins elsewhere.

    I read over the posts due to the same lack of progress. When there is 20, 30 or more people, players only get participation award and the egg will not respond. It is frustrating to work hard and receiving a low reward, like finishing off a high level mob and all the reward you receive is a pouch of peat.
    I did around 20 of the escorts, with the same results. So I tried an experiment and came in late at night. I escorted one of the departed about half way solo, then the other team of 3 arrived having finished escorting the other departed. Results were max participation awards and the egg hatched.

    I've done it on my main and on alts. I was LUCKY to get a proactive on my main once. Never got it on alts. This is after running multiple times. At this point, I think I just need to sit this out until it's resolved, because something is obviously amiss.

    I only got "active" participation in the last PQ I ran, despite being the first to give a rose to one of the lovers to get them moving from the cemetary, giving both colored roses to both lovers, clicking on both purple and black roses, and using roses to insta-kill the traitors.

    I got a "proactive" participation from the PQ before that for doing literally all of that as well.

    I've done it three times this year. First time, started late but gave 2 of each flower and clicked 2 purple/black flower. got 2 Erollisi coins. Second time, see first time. Same thing different toon. Reward was the same. Third time there were three people including myself moving a dearly departed one along. So, there was no way to be anything other than an active participant. Got 1 love note and two coins. Something is definitely messed up.

    Ok, tried again with the PQ, just one chr this time. Last night I did it on my fury, Jennsen, stayed with the zombie, only got 2 coins, and active reward. This time just now, came in 3 minutes after it started, ran to the eastern side departed by Freeport, stayed with it the whole time, flowers and all, and got proactive reward, with the 16 coins (doubled from 8, for member)

    Well, just did the PQ again on Jennsen, came in about 6 min after it actually started, but stayed with the departed the whole time, several dozen roses handed in, and only 4 coins (member doubled), with active reward, not proactive..

    I did this PQ for the last 3 days. I always give roses, pick black and purple roses, and kill the adds with roses, and most of the time get the "participant' reward. I should have gotten "proactive' for 90% of them but I revived it it 50% of the time. This looks bugged. Please look into this.

    I had also ran the PQ on Kethryveris again late last night, and for at least the first 3-4 minutes on each side, I was the only one giving roses, clearing roses and the hostile mobs. And this time, I had gotten the proactive reward, 8 (16) coins, and I think it was the macabre black roses, I don't exactly remember. But, I believe for this run, there was only like 5 players in general who participated.

    maybe the point threshold for proactive is just impossible the more players participate

    Last year and the years past, during peak times, there was at least a dozen or so, and I had no problems getting proactive, even when 3 boxing

    Okay I'm sensing a pattern here.

    I'm only getting the Proactive reward when I start with the eastern lover and see through to the end of the PQ. It's worth noting that the western lover comes to the middle much earlier than the other (In past years they would both keep walking until they spotted each other and both ran towards the other).

    I'm getting Active rewards for starting and working on the west, and Proactive for starting and working on the east.

    the western one usually got to the meeting point sooner, it's a shorter distance. They never walked until they spotted each other, the meeting point is permanent.

    the theory about only eastern zombie route getting proactive is not true overall, it might be easier to contribute there more since it's a longer route plus it usually has less folks helping. Other route is closer to druid ring and wiz spire where lots of PQ players come in from and head to the closest cemetary.

    In years past including 2022, I would play a little game of setting up a lover's gazebo as center as possible when both lovers ran to each other. Some times I would be pretty close and they'd be right in the middle, and other times I'd be way off. I used to do it all the time.

    Anyway, this year I've only been getting Proactive rewards for starting on the east and only Active rewards for starting on the west, even if I run over and help the eastern lover after the western has come to a finish. It may be sheer coincidence, but it is what it is.

    For what it's worth:
    AB server, PQ just ended (about 8:40PM pacific), i took western zombie all the way to meeting place, I was by myself about half of the journey with 2 other people helping and couple more the last 20 meters since eastern zombie got to the end of his journey.
    Proactive crate is what I got.

    Edit to add few more completion between last 2 days:
    on Majdul western zombie almost from beginning to meeting place - active reward
    on Antonia Bayle western zombie from start to finish - proactive
    on Majdul again western zombie almost from beginning - active
    on AB western zombie from start - active
    on AB eastern zombie almost from beginning - active

    I'm at a loss, good luck to QA people

    Do we have any sort of update on this bug? People are getting pretty heated in PQ's because it seems so random when people get the proper flag vs. not. Since the holiday is almost over, it seems to be getting worse.

    At this point of the event, it seems highly unlikely that a fix would even go through.

    We could not reproduce this issue. However, we will take another look at this PQ for future event iterations.
