    Zone Refresh's

    BB, it appears, from observations, that certain events trigger a Zone Refresh. While some probably are important, most seem completely pointless.

    For example: Nothing Special Scenario - I had a Zone Refresh every time a quest completed. Pointless
    Another example is the event quests: Zone on Fire - Pay brew. Why does this trigger a Zone Refresh? Pointless, irritating, frustrating and just plain lazy way to annoy and upset players

    There are dozens/hundreds of instances where this occurs and adds nothing to the game play i.e. no island dependencies on the trigger of the Zone Refresh

    This would be almost all quests, so instead of being lazy and triggering off all quests instead only trigger when it's necessary

    Thanks for listening

    The attempt to read mail sometimes also triggers "Connection lost" and then "Zone refresh". THis makes the read of the battle impossible.

    The worst quests, in my opinion, are the "waiting" quests. The "wait x number of hours" quest for the lookout starts flashing at any old time, stopping anything I've been doing. So many times I've sent out half a dozen explorers only to find they were cancelled because that quest pops up, and I have to send the explorers all over again. And what is the point of that quest, anyway? It's ridiculous to make something like that a quest. Instead of a quest, a timer on the building would give the same information and be far more functional.

    It wouldn't be so bad if the zone refresh didn't undo the last 20 seconds or so of actions. It's quite frustrating sending a bunch of geos/explorers then having to do it all again.

    The zone refreshed is becoming a nightmare, I gave up sending the explorers out last night, having to send the same one out several times.

    Worrying thing is BB knows about this major issue with the game and isnt fixed and has known for months, which would suggest they cannot fix it, wont fix it or costs money to fix it.

    Worrying times for the game if this bug isnt fixed in next round of Bug Fixes more and more people will simply leave.

    6 times in a row my attempts to read mail about a battle trigger connection loss and the - zone refresh. Maybe removing the mail is the resolve?!! Why painting it if it doesn't work? Send the explorers findings in the star menu - we'll deal with them.
