So just finished the Urgent VR Mission on Extreme mode, used a Rare 250% booster to try and get the Gix Weapons.
So joined a random party beacon at the star why not, more experience, right? "Thank god I wanted the experience!" (Sarcasm)
So, we finished up the run in about 10 mins ish no big deal. Guess what? a Rarity 13 dropped, how do I know? because I'm well aware of what it looks like with the Rainbow glowing Diamond box above the Rainbow glowing wording. (I've already gotten a few Gix weapons before).
Now I suppose this doesn't particularly bother me all too much, but the mechanic behind how the party mechanic, and how starting a new quest works.
Obviously no one got anything in my group aside me, and I was trying to clear my inventory to make room for some everything that dropped, there was at least 3 Rainnbow Diamond drops I seen, I figured neat, I'll just sit here a little bit, and throw some crap out I don't need. Whilst I was doing this, I was suddenly teleported with no notification as to why, or even a Warning. Nope, party leader just thought it wise to up and start a new Urgent, he didn't get anything obviously. I also get Urgents are timed too, but the way this mechanic works is just stupid.
I wasted a Rare Booster 250%, had great drops, and POOF, all up in smoke, and gone.
I know it's been 8 years, but I mean, you'd at least think after THAT LONG, you would have added in a VOTE, or "READY UP" mechanic into the party missons, and not just be forced to get screwed over, because the group leader didn't want to wait a few seconds.
Just another reason to hate partying up for Urgent Quests i suppose. If people can just get screwed over like that, there's absolutely no point in partying up with anyone other than people you know, which sadly, I'm the only one in a group I play with that's awake as of now.
Anyways... Just you know... a thought on how Party Mechanics works, and I guess a warning to people who join random parties on Urgents. Not worth it in my opinion.
