Wolf 359 Event TFO giving AFK penalties

tribbulatertribbulater Member Posts: 292 Arc User
Just a heads up, since roughly 4:30pm Eastern, Wolf 359 public event queue (run from the Event menu), has been handing out frequent "You received AFK penalty" completions. No completion reward, no event progress, and an AFK timer so you can't just run it again.

This has been happening to people who did top DPS, full participation, engaged in each goal (rescue pods, destroy assimilator, kill Spheres, attack Cube). And to people who did it the exact same as they did just a couple hours ago.

A couple people have reported that if they run it in private queue, it works. Not confirmed if this is a solution since it may just be sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

    An internal change accidentally made it so that most players will receive an AFK penalty when completing the Battle of Wolf 359. We recommend not doing the TFO right now, and we'll let you know as soon as a fix is live.

    From what I was told, the other TFO "Guillotine" should still be working, if anyone wants to use that for a workaround.

    I played Guillotine twice and did not receive a progress point for either day. However I did again today #3 and got the event points. Nothing to do with timer as I was at all times in the eligible time frame.

    Did you check the countdown timer first? Once or twice over the years I've done the daily too soon before the 20 hours was up.

    The glitch seems to be gone now. Instead, it looks like we don't get credit for destroying the assimilation probes if they're too close to the cube.

    Oh, and incidentally, please don't pound away on the cube until the last phase. You can't destroy it, and that distracts from killing the weapons, killing the assimilation probes, and rescuing the escape capsules.

    Yeah, noticed that myself, just completed a TF and we got credit for 4 for 24. We were melting the probes as soon as they appeared
