    [Goal] Energize and Reload!

    Energize and Reload!
    Goal states, "We have corrected an issue which should allow for a better experience while dominating the streets!"
    Have some energy on us! [BUY] 0/1
    Reward: Energy X5

    It was a 24hr goal; ends in less than 6hrs.

    Has anybody done this?

    I did it. I got 5 free energy refills I think. I didn't actually check if I really got them or not.

    Yes, buy one item for a dollar and get 5 weapons and 5 refills.

    Did you know this is a bug that works in the players' favor?

    Might want to edit that post.

    Some people I guess just don't understand when GREE messes up and feels the need to let them know about it.

    You guys are right, after getting splash screens of the items they were awarding with the text saying here's a gift for our mistakes I should have known it was a huge mess up in our favor. Sure hope they don't take anyone's massive stat gains away. Who would've known the only way for GREE to find such an error would be a post to this forum.

    My sincerest apologies..

    Was this a droid thing?
    (I only have iOS devices.)

    I still have no idea what you meant in your last post, #3 above.

    No, it's not a droid thing, and I don't think it was a mistake. You complete the goal, you get a bunch of free stuff. It's not just energy refills. I don't understand why this is confusing.

    I'll be back when the moderation is reasonable. Enjoy the forum you created, Gree.

    The goal I posted about in the OP does not say anything in game about "a bunch of free stuff," only 5 energy refills.

    Then customers started acting like there is a glitch or something... I don't see anything unusual on iOS, that's why I asked.

    The glitch was if you completed that goal to get 5 energy refills you also got the (48) and (72) speed run goals for finishing elite 20/20 of the ltq.

    There is a very good chance people didn't realize that's what happened, I didn't on my main account. It was easy to figure out what happened when I loaded my mini and wanted to know where those items came from.

    But yeah, to anyone experienced with Gree, it's pretty suspiciously generous to get 5x energy refill AND 5x item + modifier for completing a goal for $1 CC dollar. Reeks of "too good to be intentional and may eventually be corrected." Even if the original goal was meant to correct for whatever unspecified issue they fixed.

    So what happened to it? Was it that they messed up and gave a bunch of stuff for free so they ended it early? I started looking for it like a crackhead on a carpet 2 hours after VL said it had "less than 6 hours" left and nada. I'd still like a shot at the free refills....

    This raises that old ethical bugaboo: what does a player who feels (rather strongly) that it is horribly unethical to exploit a "glitch" do with the "ill-gotten" gain he ill-got from (innocently?) doing just that. Off to the Philosophy Library I suppose.

    It was a 24 hour limited time goal. I can't tell you when it started or was supposed to end because I don't know either.

    And there's nothing philosophical to discuss here. This couldn't be exploited as it was not repeatable and occurred while doing regular game actions. The only ways to avoid benefitting from this glitch were either to not log in, or to be one of those people that completely ignores the goals list.

    I doubt anything will be taken away, although it could be, but still.... This is the type of thing that gets around quick among syndicates, there's no reason to post about it here. And if your syndicate never gets any such intel, get in a better one.

    Agreed. Lmao

    I got a ticket like an hour before saying there would be something given in the game as compensation for the crappy SA and LTQ (not in those exact words). But yeah. 10% armor attack and 5 energy refills, thanks GREE!

    Guess you had to log on that day to get them though
