I recon the pop-up saying 70% required is BS, and that it was done to make players run deputies and open/buy packs, and that chapter 10 will be 1 upgrade for mission 1 and 1 for mission 5.

VERY familiar, as expected the 70% to complete is BS, finished chapter 10 with the usual 1 upgrade to start mission 1 and 1 for mission 5, more con job tactics from GameLoft... And StW all gold today :?

If you try and equip the weapon and use the exotic and sniper filter it doesn't show, untick exotic and it shows as a region 32 weapon, now this is new, and will no doubt be 'corrected'.

Also as expected it takes a full mag just to take out a grey drone, any decent defended base it won't have a chance on, at leasst no deputies and no packs opened, just grind and a lot of it for something yet again useless to me.

Thanks for the update.

Indeed, the 70% ruse is incompetence or deception. Neither are traits of a good game.

SF could be such an entertaining game if GL got rid of all the sources of complaints. We will just have to accept the situation if we are going to continue playing.

Yep, your last point is the one the GameLoft should take notice of, as without players they won't make any cash out of it!

The follow on here is, that under many Countries Law, 'to gain advantage from "False Advertising'" is a Criminal Offence'! It will be interesting to see how the various platform providers respond to this case. My view, they won't give a shit because there is still revenue.

Unfortunately they've been doing it for years and would rather just pretend they are not using deliberately false advertising to gain revenue.

Well another disappointing event, I just played it out for parts so as to not waste em all again when the event ends and GameLoft steal them from all players.

All I can say is lets hope that if there is a Christmas 3 stage it's not a kick in the nether regions, again, to players!

I have to agree, another instant dust gatherer. At least I used no SP's or Deputies and actually gained some SP's from StW.
Roll on the next 3 stager, but I will not be holding my breath for a Base Killer Weapon.
