    The muggers around here are getting a little too cocky for me. You push one away from this street corner, and another one pops up a block away. The cops are no help at all--I think they're happy when I have headaches like this. 

    So I want you to be the aspirin for my headache. This problem needs a rabbit response--what? Rapid, rabbit, I dunno--whatever, I want you to just move fast. Rabbitly. Got it? Good.

    There's three muggers I want you to go down on, and I want you to do it quick. Take em out fast like bang-bang-bang: all inside of 15 minutes. They won't never know what hit them. So come on bunny rabbit, hop to it.


    Within a 15 minute window, defeat Miao, Mardinho and Hyper


    Great so I took the challenge, beat the first two, then the last one hyper someone beat me to him... Now I can't revive him as they are turned off. So mission failed.

    Ridiculous. It's bad enough when you have 3 days to defeat someone who is being hunted by dozens of others. Logging in multiple times to try and attack quickly before someone else snips your victory.

    For goodness sake,,, remove people who have revive turned off from the mission pool, or allow them to be revived against their wishes for missions only.

    Otherwise bad database decisions are ruining the game.

    I do like the mission addition, however, I find this is just poor programming to include them. It's hard enough for us old timers to have the will to carry on playing, don't make our decision to log out permanently too easy for us. (unless that is what is intended)

    Very Hard and expert missions was not supposed to be easy.  You will fail. Just suck it up and move on to the next one.  I know it sucks but it was designed that way.  Good luck with the future missions.

    Ok,  so I didn't get a fail.....  I see they have adjusted it so you have multiple chances of getting all 3 within a 15 minute timeline but over the 3 days.

    So it's not as bad as I thought. ;)

    Here is a suggestion, log on a low period and make sure all 3 targets are available to attack before you start.  Don't try on the new day because that is when everyone is attacking on the same mission or another one that may involve your target.

    I hit targets like that around midnight CST, that is when the least amount of UK-US players are playing.

    You don't get that hard missions when you have lame stats. Your fault for training so much?

    At least you did not get the mission to pepper spray a guy who has a helmet that blocks it or had to deal with that issue ppl had with a target for a mission being in fed.  I kept getting ones that had defense or dexterity so high that I could train for months and still never touch them even if someone else attacked and lowered their stats and I used drugs and Items to boost.  Once in a while you get a really easy mission like place a bounty on someone... but there is hardly ever any missions that are in between that extreme and nearly impossible that I have seen for my own experiences.  It is either ridiculously easy or almost completely impossible...  it would be more fun if there was more than one way to win a mission and you were able to use your skill as a player to pick one of those paths to accomplish that somehow.

    For mission targets that have been placed in fed, you just need to file a bug report and the target will be changed.

    For the rest of the stuff, find other ways to complete the mission, there's really no "impossible" missions, just improbable to complete with your current attitude towards it

    actually the pepper-spraying smoke grenade missions are impossible if the target is wearing an MC helmet. 


    Just sayin'

    Then file a bug report and see if Aurel would be kind enough to change the target for you, same as with other missions that cannot be completed.

    Given the low number of motorcycle and welding helmets in the game, I don't think that is an issue you have a high probability of running into though.

    Point taken, haven't run into it personally, but have run into targets that have MC Helmets equipped. Replying to the "there's really no "impossible" missions, just improbable to complete with your current attitude towards it"

    as that is false.
