Chose timing of quest roids

At the moment it can happen that you have incomings and just finish 50th amp and 150th building or whatever stupid quest and the reward roids will just be lost.

I suggest to make them appear on the bonus page where you can chose when to "activate" them.

When you complete a task it should have a collect button.

Also stops people accidentally completing quests on incoming.

Selecting collect is making a conscious decision to take them.

Re: Chose timing of quest roids

Yes, I too like to have the choice of WHEN I can accept the rewards for a completed quest. Nothing like completing a quest while you're asleep, gain roids only have those roids taken away a few ticks later. Grrrr

Subject: Quest reward claiming
Posted Fri Oct 13 17:45:07 2017
Status: Pending

You asked

Hi,

With the new quest system it would be nice if you could manually claim the rewards instead of it being rewarded automatically when the quest is complete..

A lot of categories have 10+ quests and there are a lot of asteroids in the reward of the quest..
For asteroids timing on when to get them is important...
i.e.:
- is HCT research advanced far enough to be able to use the roids?
- are incoming hostile fleet en-route to your planet?
- ...

Right now one has to take great care in which categories to start/not start to avoid accidentally getting too much roids too soon/at the wrong time..

I think that's unfortunate.. I would like to be able to start all categories and claim the reward for them at a time of my choosing..

Re: Chose timing of quest roids

You know, I did think this was a great idea when I first read it, but the more I think about it, the more I think it isn't such a good idea.

The unpredictability of finishing quests because of outside factors make them more fun.
The more you can claim them at certain times, the more it has the potential to make things more stale (for instance, no-one would claim the roids whilst under attack, so would just wait for all to block elsewhere and then claim on mass, meaning it makes it even more of a good idea to block, not less)

Re: Chose timing of quest roids

I'm also not 100% sold on this idea. You already choose their timing: when you finish the quest. Don't want the reward? Don't finish the quest! You can sit on 99% pop, or 99 amps, or 49 cov ops, or HCT 1750 for a few ticks to wait for the incs to pass. Or you can just not accept the quest, then you can still do whatever you want.

[edit] And since apparently not everyone is convinced this is genuinely my opinion: let me assure you, it is.

This removes half the skill of the quests, I like having to think about what I am doing and the impact that has on the rest of my game. I wouldn't want to see this feature introduced.

Re: Chose timing of quest roids

+1 Lukey, and as mz said, when there was a quest that could give me roids at the wrong time, it was easy to delay it.

Re: Chose timing of quest roids

make them all auto accepted...so cons and research bonus goes straight into whatever research you're currently doing.

or make them all accept when you want

That doesn't work as well when some of the CP bonuses could easily complete your current and queued constructions.

and why should it be a benefit, when auto accepting roids isn't always?

i am in the "accept all quests at your leisure" camp. i dont think having the rewards forced on you is great, the completion the chain giving xp should be the only automated event.
