    Default BP not counting Q for Tank and complete Dungeon

    Great waste of time. Created a tank spec. Q as tank for random - Gyel Fortress. Ran it all as tank. completed it as tank. was only tank there. DID NOT COUNT!

    A lot of the instanced stuff seems to have a delay so you have to wait for a few before you leave to get credit. Maybe that is the issue? The battle pass quest is too random. Not enough players on the same quest scheme. It is even becoming detrimental for stuff like doing objectives in PvP. For instance, if there are 20 players queueing for 3 different warfronts the warfronts will not pop for a long time because there are too many people queueing for different stuff to do and not enough filler players to get everyone to do the quest they need. This makes the game feel even more dead for all those players.

    This was not as big a problem with the first battle pass but now is for two main reasons. One reason is a large amount of people who were forced to sit out for a couple of months during all the downtime. Those people just fill their time with other things to do besides play Rift. Very hard to win those players back. Secondly, other games like WoW Classic pulled a lot of players away from Rift because it promises people to play with.

    Unfortunately, they had a run of bad luck that hit at a perfect storm. No real new content to keep players enticed and making those who are dedicated Rifters suffer from long bouts of downtime. Battle Pass 2 is unsuccessful with the dwindled player base. Zone Event tracking API is also broken and it is alot to ask for someone to sit around all day to wait for random zone events. They need to remove a lot of quest from BP2 so more people can find eachother to do those quest and more people can get stuff done.

    For PvP it is very easy. Just make it all dependent on kills and winning non specific warfronts not objective or specific base but for the other stuff like doing zone events and depending on parties for instance objectives isn't working. Makes the game feel even deader than it should.

    I can testify to this. After not having access to my account for a week I attempted to log in and spent about 6-8hrs doing my dailies and a few things across both my alts. Advertising every 10minutes or so that I wanted to buy the BP2 from another player for 4k (ish) plats (id be willing to go a bit higher).

    2-3months ago I would have found someone within an hour.

    After 6-8hrs of calling I gave up.

    Im not willing to spend my own money on the game and it looks like there is no market to buy it from anyone at the moment.

    Also havnt logged back on since that day. Due to the multitude of issues described with the new BP2 here on the forums it seems like gamigo is going to be a glutten for punishment and continuously not learn from there mistakes.

    Similar thing happened to me. Q'd for all grps as tank, got Tuat'de Coven Expert as Tank, tanked 2 bosses, went DPS after that because my ... very good french healer did not chang from heal to DPS like I told him and finished Dungeon. I still technically tanked everything because that i what happens when you do 40% of the grp's dps ;) Did not get credit for it.

    Could be that less and less other players are willing to part with their own rl cash aswell, even if they get plat in-game.
    I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm not opening my wallet anymore as far as Gamigo is concerned.

    I got the queue for and complete LFR as tank, and with a little bit of testing I found out you have to actually queue for LFR, and get the queue to pop, and not use a premade 10-man.

    I'm not sure if queuing with a partial premade would work, I'll leave the testing for that to somebody else.

    I would think the mechanic for this quest is the same for the dungeon one.
