Event Campaign 2021 XBOX

I bought out the Battle for Qo.nos event, but just noticed that I'm still short on the Campaign III progress by about 250 points - with only one day to go, will I be able to buy out the Campaign III with LOBI and get the Infinity Ship?

PLEASE tell me a year of grinding but not quite making it to the finish line will not be wasted

    The problem, is that the individual events are either finished, or not showing..... I can only see 3 of the 5 and NONE of them seem to allow buyout. And there is no Second Chance option either (greyed out). Right now, I've go no way to earn or buy the missing 5 days I need. :'(

    The last two don't show, but the first three do show the buyout button. As I completed all the events, it's actually greyed out so can't confirm if you can buyout.

    It may be that you completed those three (given the amount of progress you have) - not sure why the other two would not be showing, unless they were maybe the first two and either you weren't playing yet, or the buyout deadline for them has already passed.

    It's a UI bug that's preventing them displaying the last 2 on XB.

    Yeah, there's always bug for the poor cousin Xbox!

    I'm sure I completed or bought out all five - I've got all the shinies - so not sure what's going to happen. I'll be mightily [email protected] if I miss out on the ship for want of a few dailies. Anyway, I've opened a ticket to enquire, so hopefully it will be alright!!

    I honestly couldn't say, but it most likely will be an option. I'll try to find out on tonight's Livestream for you.

    I think we have two or three weeks of nothing in particular before our anniversary begins, so I would think they'll leave the door open a bit longer.

    There is not and has never been, a direct buyout for the campaign itself. You would need to buy out one of the component events.

    Pick one that you have missed at least 5 days from. On the bright side you'll get that event's shiny too.

    Thanks for that. I wasn't sure as I completed mine fairly early on.

    I did mine in the first 4 of the 5 events too, I was just thinking the OP would feel bad if they went to buy out event 4 (for example) without noticing they were only 2 days short for it. Then they would need to buy out one more event for the other 3 days.

    On PC there's a horizontal scroll bar just below the list of eligible events, and scrolling left and right shows the remaining events. I'm not sure how that works on console though, if you're able to resize the event window that also makes all five visible at the same time on PC.

  • So, it seems there is actually a bug. I didn't get the full Voth event completed and it's still showing as 'open' but no option to buyout or get second chance. And I can only see 3 of the 5 events, although I confirmed with a GM that I have the consoles/kits so they are complete. As you can still buyout/second chance the events on PC, I've asked the GM to look at getting a patch fix done ....... holding my breath for good news!
