Not sure if it's appropriate to report this here rather than on the Debugging forums but I had 3 IoTms (Judo kid gloves, Cupid's quiver, Subscriver jacket) in the Auction house, all set with a minimum bid of 20 stars.

So, for bosses: any plan to 'fix' the 'if you log later in the day, no boss for you!'issue? I know it's still the early stages, but maybe, dunno, the potential to get multiple bosses in a day for a cost/diminishing returns as Cristiona suggested? Also, shouldn't defeating the boss give some XP to ev...

Re: Make pulls carry over?

So it doesn't work like that because if it did, you could do long daycount, short turncount stunt runs? Is that really a issue worth the restriction?

Make pulls carry over?

Was talking about this in chat earlier. Apparently it doesn't happen. Could it be made to?
I think it would be friendler to people who skip a day in a run with pulls.

Re: non-retcon contest - now in progress!

Ended my run by accident.
Thought it could be nice to start opening up the station, so I clicked on Susan...only a split second later I remember that, as I had defeated the mick, that meant ending the run.

Oh well. It was a pretty sucky run anyway, was only level 22.

That's the same PP per chips ratio as power sticks, which is well...not very good for something that comes from an IoTM. I think Ryme said there was a problem with the formula and he'd look into it?

Something like the Boomstick but for melee weapon users.

Maybe it could be a chainsaw or something equally over the top?
