I finally snagged the wild Ditto to finish my current set of 3 Special Research tasks, got the nice rewards for completing the set, went through a new trainer-talk scenario, and got the new 3-task set: Fight in 10 raids, make level 25, and evolve a Magikarp. (Thank goodness it didn’t say WIN 10 raids, that would have been quite a bit more onerous.)
I had just bailed on an Aggron raid when nobody had joined by the 30-second mark on the countdown, not feeling masochistic enough to try to solo that. But even losing 10 raids should satisfy the task, so I went back and got my ass kicked in short order… One down, or so I thought.
The binocular quest icon was orange, so I pressed it, only to have the trainer guy repeat the exact same narrative for that new set of tasks. And my 10-raid counter still said 0.
Thanks a f-ing lot. It’s not THAT big a deal to lose credit for just one raid; but getting shredded in a raid is no fun, particularly having to wait for the 2-minute-to-start countdown, when you know nobody else is going to join.
I hope the same quest-reset bug doesn’t strip credit for some greater task (like the catch-a-Ditto, which took a whole week of hunting). Has anybody else been bit by this bug in your task work?
