    Default PvP Rifts- Random closing bonus

    Ive done 44 PvP rifts so far, well actually over 50 except the fact that Im not getting credit on all of them.

    Ive been told that people need to cap at least 1 shard to get credit. We had a full raid tonight doing it, and after running a stone, I patrolled the area for guardians to let other people cap 1.

    Half the time, there is no ending bonus of 250 Unseen rep.

    What exactly is it looking at to get credit on closing a PvP rift? I have a feeling this is bugged, just like the actual opening of a PvP rift, which is spotty at best.

    I've gotten credit for "defending" runners while working on Mathos rep (not flagged).
    I've gotten credit for "closing"...while just being in the area, again just working on Mathos rep (not flagged).

    It is kind of...you know...funny - in a sad way.

    Ya, the rules for getting credit for an uncontested rift frustrate me.

    From what I cant tell:
    -> You get credit if you're standing on the tear right when it opens
    -> You get credit if you run a shard
    -> You get credit if you get a nearby kill

    I have a really hard time out clicking people for the shards and wish they'd change this.

    Thats the thing, the last 2 I did tonight, did all of those things, and still didnt get credit.

    Looked at favor before and after close.

    Never seemed to happen on my way to Honored, now Im almost 8k in to next level and its happening 1 out of 2 times.

    Ran 8 more rifts in IPP tonight. For some reason, if you get someone to open
    another rift in a zone within a few seconds of the last closing, they always
    open (if you having the same bug on PvP rifts we are).

    Anyhow, 7 of the rifts, I ran and capped stones. The 8th rift I capped 1 stone
    and did nothing else but stand in the Rift.

    4 of the times I got the 255 Unseen Rep bonus, the other 4 I did not.
    Checked Unseen totals, and the logs to verify. Guess what? One of the
    times I DID get the bonus, I just capped 1 stone and did nothing. Even
    more bizarre, one of the times I capped 5 stones, I did not get the ending
    bonus, even after all of that activity.

    Can someone at Trion please explain why this is happening. The exact
    same behavior should not be yielding such different results.

    Is this ending bonus not a guaranteed thing when your into Honored, or is this bugged.
