While I appreciate the work of all the people who managed to find a way to glitch past this issue, it doesn't always work, and it's not at all a substitute for fixing the bug. If this could be added to known issues or similar, that would be great.
I would like to add my name to the list of people who are experiencing this bug. Game breakers are unhelpful.
I did Reda's dailies, and went opal hunting for a while without issue, so it seems like a Ravensthorpe problem.
Yup. Happening to me on PC also.
I did make it to round 9 in boxing once, though! I guess my game blacked out from all that mead.
@citizennowhere Yeah, I'm having the same difficulty, minus the Reda quest. Still missing a single skill point. Minus side: A skill I can't unlock, since I don't have enough. Plus side: A nice, attractive 475 instead of a gross 476.
The completionist in me hates it, but the OCD in me loves it.
I have no idea why nobody is talking about this. It's not like you can't (and won't) change weapons and armor any time you want any way. Allowing us to do it with fewer button presses doesn't seem like it would unbalance anything, and would encourage me to use different playstyles for different situations.
In fairness, I DID lose Reda's quests temporarily today, but I had picked them up, and then was doing things around the village first, so the loss still occurred within town. I was able to re-acquire the quests after reloading.
I am aware that there is a different thread about this topic, but that one has evolved into a discussion of "worthiness" and whether some players "deserve" to succeed or not.
I have my own opinions on those matters, but that's not the point. I would simply like to say that I do believe that the difficulty of the challenges is pitched too high. When so many players are having issues with a new feature, it's at least worth considering that the problem may not be with the players, but with the features. There are many reason why being unable to progress further would be unpleasant. For myself, I am autistic. I find it difficult to interact verbally, and can only communicate effectively while typing. More importantly, I find incompletable tasks to be very distressing. For myself, it's near the point that I simply cannot log on anymore because seeing that number and knowing that I can't achieve it is almost physically painful. The presence of these challenges, in their current form, makes the entire game very difficult to enjoy at all, not just the challenge portion of it.
These are not things most people think about. I'm aware of that too. But there is a certain percentage of your player base for which the full game has now become less enjoyable, and I think that needs to be said, in case you folk at Ubisoft aren't aware.
I do not assume you don't care. I don't assume that you are lazy, or thoughtless, or any of the other myriad talking points. I genuinely believe that, for better or worse, you are doing your best in a high stress environment. Rather, I believe that you've made a misstep, and accidentally marginalized people like me, or people with other native problems that make this level of difficulty problematic. I do wonder, for instance, how a player with more limited manual dexterity due to injury or condition would feel while attempting these challenges and being unable to achieve even bronze. It doesn't take much disability to make that impossible right now.
I would appreciate it if these issues were at least discussed by the relevant teams, in the interest of making this game inclusive to people with physical and mental disabilities.
I've had plenty of luck with archery. You win 40 tokens per round if you score high enough, and it's only a couple of minutes long, so you can probably get through several of them before it crashes. I just save between each one.
Yup, as of the most recent patch, this is happening to me as well, every time that I open the game. The first time, I simply sighed and re-upgraded the whole set; I had enough spare resources lying around that it wasn't a hardship, even if it was annoying.
Then it happened again, and this time I think I'll hold off on doing anything about it.
Per your questions: The trigger seems to be loading a save. The resources were not returned to me.
I have the ultimate preorder edition.
This issue has coincided with the persistent "Bonus Content Unlocked" message bug that I've seen others having.

Why yes, this is happening to me right as we speak. I'm trying very hard not to make some sort of nasty comment, so instead I'd just very much like you to fix this issue, so that I can again play a game that I've been playing almost daily since launch. Thanks.
Addendum: While I'm obviously not happy that this is still an issue, I would like to note that the process outlined by @john52072008, above, did still work for me.
@XBL_Laberbacke I do not deny any of these points. I would like to add another couple: D) It is a fairly trivial action to add a couple of tattoos or settlement cosmetics to a slate of rewards that have not seen an update in a while. E) Having a large store of tokens with nothing to spend them on, especially during a sale, is somewhat demoralizing. This is not something you particularly want in an entertainment venue, especially one which already has quite a few acknowledged issues that are affecting player satisfaction.
I am not asking for a major change, or entire packs to suddenly become available, but a statue or two might be nice, so that those of us that have consistently been earning these tokens could feel as though a reward has actually been earned.
While I very much appreciate the existence of the current half-off rewards discount, the entire thing is rather pointless for those of us who have already purchased the full inventory at full price. I have. I even purchased the Berserker pack, despite the fact that I already had it from the special edition of the game. At full price, I might add, because there was nothing else to spend those points on. I'm currently sitting on 280 tokens, and can't spend any of them, let alone at a discount. The net result is not excitement for the sale, but rather regret and annoyance.
Might it be possible to add in a few reward items, even relatively inconsequential ones, so that this little event doesn't go completely to waste for those of us who have been playing the game from the beginning, and have already used the system at full price in its entirety? I guarantee, it would be appreciated.
@metallo75 Sad to say, and I mean no particular disrespect to the support team, but I think we probably need to accept this as the new normal, since we clearly have no capacity to affect their response.
I'll add my voice to that. Even if this was intended, and it should not have been, a prominent warning would have been appropriate. As with many others, I kept large stocks of fish and animal goods in my inventory, because every new event that comes around seems to require me to turn in more, and being able to complete those quickly is far more valuable than the marginal silver that they are worth on sale. Now those items are gone, and I must resume my most absolutely hated activity in a game that I otherwise quite enjoy: farming.
If anyone looks back through my message history, you'll notice that I have been unfailingly polite and grateful for the efforts of the support team, and even now understand the lack of resources and time that have hindered their ability to do their jobs. However, I think it is past time to acknowledge that the lack of service has moved beyond the realm of acceptable. Reda quests being unavailable every third day for months now, with no end in sight, missing resources, connectivity issues (a service being down yesterday cost me 30 opals), challenges refusing to update, loading times well in excess of industry norms, broken functionality on literally every festival... the list continues to grow, and I have regretfully seen no sign that any of this is being or ever will be addressed. This game is beginning to reach toward the end of its active life, and I accept that. All things pass, and I accept the coming of the Twilight of the Gods. But there is, I think, little excuse to fail to meet the bare minimum of a "maintenance mode," especially while at least some new content is incipient, and with respect this expectation has not been met.
I still expect that this is not an indication of dedication, but of resources. Whomever is in charge of allocating these resources needs to understand that these persistent issues are actively damaging consumer confidence in your product. If this is the service we can expect in future games, especially considering the higher than average price tag, I can see little reason to spend my gaming budget elsewhere. Somewhere more reliable.
Most of this post is not technically on topic, but I seek to highlight patterns of behavior that are very much connected, and I think that making an entirely separate topic concerning these failings would be redundant, and the worse option.
Please consider at least addressing these issues publicly, and offering at least a bit of a mea culpa, if not recompense. I have very much enjoyed your game, but things are edging toward a breaking point, even for me.
I am definitely also still encountering this bug. I appreciate you working hard to fix this, and would, like many others, appreciate some kind of remuneration for the opals lost during this dark time. Thanks.
Yup. Happening fairly frequently to me as well, including today.
I will add my voice to the chorus, and say that I too am having this problem. Thanks for listening, and the hard work you'll do to fix this issue.
I actually do think that I need to bring up disabilities, since it's a separate issue from simply disliking the level of difficulty. I'm speaking of people who are physically or mentally literally unable to take part in this activity because it is pitched as difficult as it is.
I actually do happen to agree with your argument, but it's a different argument with the same cause.
Edit: A slightly more lengthy explanation. It isn't about being frustrated, or wanting a smoother playing experience. When I see this number, I get headaches. Earlier I vomited after seeing it. My heart races, and I break into cold sweats, and become disoriented. These are involuntary responses with a medical origin. Autism tends to not be pretty, and it's very resistant to treatment. And this isn't even talking about people whose hands lack full range of motion, or who have other issues with play that are more than just about what they like and what they find frustrating. I felt that people like me, and like them, should at least comment about the way in which we are specifically affected. And I think that providing Ubisoft with as many different valid reasons why this level inaccessibility isn't a good thing as possible will increase the chances that Ubisoft listens.
