Why would they make it so leves fail if you get logged out?Follow

I made a new character so I could concentrate on crafting because I wasn't really sure what I was doing the first time around and messed up a few of the quests. I just wanted to concentrate completely on that element of the game so I could get the hang of it better. I made a miner and I've now failed the first two mining leves due to either getting logged out, or the game crashing for no reason. I logged straight back in and it had failed both times. Feels as though what I was trying to do is totally pointless now. How was this issue not fixed in previous versions? :/ I don't think there is, but just to check, there's no possible way for me to complete those leves now, is there?

Of course there is, you just have to wait 48 hours to get them again - I hope they fix the fail on DC thing.

This is a horrible decision so far on their part. Sometimes I'll just drop connection for no reason during the game, or Windows 7 will encounter an error with the BETA and close on me. It doesn't happen all the time, but coincidentally when I'm running a leve. I lost 5 of them due to that. I also did some sort of battleground thing that also ends the second you get logged out.

To me it defeats the purpose of even having a timer. If an event has started we should adhere to the timer and that's why we get 30 minutes just in case some weird stuff happens.

SE really has to change this. I think SE fears people will do leves non-stop, but why would it be a bad thing? Leves don't provide exp, only gil and sometimes an item. People should be able to do leves as much and as often as they want.

I actually have not had any DC errors yet thankfully, but I too am affected by this decision to fail a leve upon DC. While I havent had any DC errors exactly, I have had bugs that make it so that one way or another I cannot complete a quest. Recently on a fishing leve the game bugged and would not allow me to unequip or equip anything, so I could not get the proper gear. Therefore I had to quit the game and restart to fix this bug, and of course I have now failed the quest. This is not just stupidity on the programmers part but unacceptable. When you are already limited to a small amount of leves every 2 days and something as stupid as a DC (which happens often in a beta of course) causes you to fail one, you might be looking at failing several leves a day. This is inexcusable in my opinion

I failed one leve so far because of disconnect. I actually JUST mined the last item in the Mining Leve when I disconnected :/. I really don't like the feature because I spastic DSL at best as I live out in the middle of no where. I've come close on other Leves too, disconnecting right after I finished, or having the game crash right before I start one. It'd be nice if they adjusted that a little.
