Considering that there are more players than POs to be handed out randomly, may I quote you on that day one?

I purposefully logged into a level 10 toon today (as the first toon today that I logged in) to see if the daily got tailored to my toon.

I got a Rishi kill fest for the daily.
Rishi does not bolster. What if I didn't have any toons capable of going to Rishi yet?

The daily should be tuned to who logs in what.

The problem with doing so, of course, is everyone could be lazy and log into toons in which POs tailored for a specific level because they're easy to clear, as well as everyone crawling on top of each other on Hutta or Tython or other starter planets until they grow out of those areas.

Having read your post before I hit 9 points, I carefully watched each message on the screen, and you're right. I got every notice in the world except one telling me that I had a GS calendar item to unlock. Needs to be one.

In claiming an event calendar item, I could repeatedly click on the Claim button without any apparent effect until I closed the window and then it updated (disabled and listing as Claimed) when I went back to it.

1. The interface needs to update on the first click
2. A message needs to appear something akin to "Check your inventory for items"

I should have claimed alturr while my personal inventory was full to see what would have happened.

So everything aside from the 2 sticky objectives is for us to judge as potentials, that's it.
What you quoted doesn't clear up any of the confusion. It doesn't say anything about only the top stickied ones will give points and all the others will not.

Looking through the entire list of POs, I'd like to see these two removed:

PO: Avatar of Ruin - Defeat the Colossal Monolith
PO: Now That...Is an Insectoid... - Defeat Kil'Cik the Swarm Lord

People still don't know how to do the Colossal Monolith and, even though this season is kinda bug based, you need too large of a group for Kil'Cik and nobody wants to do the WBs on Ossus. Yes, it may change once people get this as a daily but it's still a real pain putting a group together for it.

Also, two of the three single boss Ops are listed. Why no TC (I'm pretty sure I know why but why not include it anyway)?

PO: Valuable Connections seems to be out of place with everything else listed (unless this will be a weekly objective). Doing three GF / WZs takes a ton more time than everything else listed as a PO.

The Galactic Seasons mechanic seems fine overall, if still very rough around the edges and a little confusing at the moment, but I generally like what I'm seeing. I especially loved the small detail of seeing the sub reward companions hanging out together in the new Galactic Seasons vendor area like they are old pals.

There is one glaring issue that sticks out like a sore thumb though and I pray that you will not ignore it now when you can still plan ahead. If you truly intend to merge some of the priority objectives with the "Defeat Enemies" Conquest objectives, you have to decrease the respawn timer for all mobs and objectives to at least 30 seconds or even lower across the board. If you don't do this, I can guarantee you right now that you will have even more toxic behaviour than we currently have when masses of players are trying to farm the enemies for their Galactic Seasons objectives in addition to the already existing Conquest objectives and bonus mission rewards for quests and Heroics.

You need to look at the Heroic on Voss (especially). I got the Defeat Enemies yesterday and today and I know which two heroics work to complete the defeat enemies both part 1 and part 2 so I went to do it again today and in one of heroic none of the enemies were being counted for part 2. I rather do my defeat enemies in my heroics so it doesn't affect those doing the quests on the planet so that needs to be fixed.

I know that a lot of times the bonus (kill objectives) are only good on one character per week but that shouldn't make it not count on the defeat enemies so please fix.

I liked them.
> Particularly enjoyed the new additions, such as Galactic: Defeat Insectoids.
> However, I've found many of the POs are not working properly. They can be completed but are not counting as the daily, thus not awarding points.
> Only 2 of my POs so far counted as dailies, the Defeat Enemy 2 Taris and Corellia. For some reason, those two are not grouped up with the other POs; they keep top of CQ objectives no matter how I sort it. All others I tried, including the the insectoids ones (both the dailies and the weekly) did not count.
> Regardless, and again, I liked how they encompass many diverse areas of gameplay.

After reading David's post, and understanding (I think) the numbers, I believe it's not bad at all.

> However, this may result in the GS losing becoming irrelevant too soon for more active players.
Taking the 150 days as base that would give around 20 weeks for GS 1. In that time SUBs could potentially make 1560 points and F2P 1040 (and now I realize David had the weekly count already in the post... all that math I did ). Anyway, I understand that means we have ample time to reach the end and I like it. However, as I said, that also means GS will become irrelevant and almost half the points (sub case) will be wasted.
With that in mind, I'd like to suggest the possibility of adding a way to trade those points for rewards. I still don't know how many tokens we'll get - and do hope that reward isn't 1 token - but still doubt many would think more would be a problem. So, something like, every 30 extra points after reaching the 800 would award more tokens (yes, pushing for multiple here lol).
I think that would be a nice way to keep players engaged and performing the tasks even after they are done with the season and an incentive to F2P to subscribe since the amount of extra points is expressive.

Not much for now.

> Took screenshots of the ones not working. If needed, pm me.

Please answer the following questions:
Were you able to find the Galactic Seasons page?
Yes. That wasn't hard. However the progress bar is odd. I'm currently at 21/800 points and I've collected level 1 and 2 rewards. But there is a progress bar just below the levels that shows me to be 12.5% through level 1?

Were you able to locate your Galactic Seasons Priority Objectives in the Galactic Seasons screen?
Eh? Mixing them in with Conquest objectives was very confusing. I think they need their own page.

Also, just what each one was is way too unclear. I had no idea which are daily and weekly objectives. Or which objectives actually count. The two at the top are the only ones that seemed to give me 'daily' points. For instance, I killed 75 enemies on Alderaan for PO Coreward Neutralization, but got no points. Only Tatooine and Corellia kills are giving me galactic seasons points

Also, there was no way to know which were weekly objectives. Though apparently killing 200 insectoids counted as that and gave me 12 points.

In the Conquest screen there is a list of tentative Daily and Weekly Priority Objectives. These are all denoted as "PO: Name". What feedback do you have regarding the current list of objectives?
This may be okay? Still a little confused by daily versus weekly. Also what will be offered when not killing insectoids.

How do you feel about the cadence and points offered in GS?
Seems pretty easy to accomplish with regular play

What other general feedback would you would like to tell us?
Make it much clearer what the objectives are, and how many points they will grant, if any.
