Mission Portal Issue, lost backbag

======= NOTICE FOR HELP =======

What happened?
=> Completed Ninja mission, ran through the reward thingy and got teleported back to ECC just fine. Though, the second I moved, I re-entered the Ninja mission portal, and was back inside the mission instance. No biggie I thought, and logged out as usual to fix it (and as it says on the portal, "If you don’t succeed or log out in 17 minutes, you’ll lose your backbag).
Now it seems that logging out inside the instance will drop my backbag (this hasn’t been the case before) and since I already had completed the instance, there was no way out.
The portal you come in from is deactivated, and the portal at the end, that says it has “one way door” seems to actually have a one time use -door that did not open anymore. Though, the portal there wasn’t active either, so I’m not sure if that has any affect on the end result, but still: I’m stuck inside the instance, only way to get out is to log out or to wait out the timer and both of those resulted in me losing my bag.

Whether the new “log out and lose your bag” -behavior is intended or not, I don’t know. Either way, the wording on the portal seems to be wrong or then the game isn’t doing what you guys would want it to do. Some sort of fixing seems to be in order.

Player(s) with issue? (steam name)

Server? (EU or NA or RE EU or RE NA)
=> RE EU

When did it happen? (Use server time: type ingame cb:time)
=> 16.8.2022 around 14.45

On which Playfield?
=> Ninja mission playfield / ECC building

Structure Name(s)?

Structure ID(s) (Open ingame console and type di)?

How can we help you now?
=> Maybe you could add a way to get out of mission instance after you have completed the place and happen to accidentally re-enter it before the portal at ECC closes.
Stuff is most likely gone, since it’s the bag that is lost, but that’s pixels anyways.

I don’t know when this started happening but it is an issue for me as well. I haven’t done the ninja mission, but I have been seeing this issue with all portals I’ve used recently.

When we return it puts us RIGHT up against the portal.
If I do anything other than immediately walk backwards I get sent back through the portal.

Even just turning the mouse so I can see where I am, without touching a single directional key, it puts me back through the portal.

I had this happen multiple times the other day.

Ok, just for the sake of sience, did it again. You actually don’t need to do anything to get sent back inside the mission portal. If you just stay still when exiting the mission instance, you’ll get teleported back inside in a second or two after just teleporting outside.
I had my hands off the keyboard and mouse, and here I am, back inside the mission playfield.

True. More and more players reporting that. (sometimes you are even behind the portal)
I told the Dev to move the exit player point more forward of the portal.

Yes, we will change all Instances to the new system with the Reward Tokens - removing the Treasure room idea. It was fun on paper, but in MP with all these bugs too annoying for the player.
The Reward Token in combination with the Bifrost makes it easy and solid.
Especially cause it opens up my plan of a CSW with all 4 HWS servers in the future.

I did figure it was an Eleon issue with the portals.

I really liked the Bitfrost. Looks awesome and is a really cool concept.

Thank you! :slight_smile:
It’s quite a big invention. This allows us to place Instances also in random generated systems without the issue of the fixed 1:1 connection Portals normally require.
