I used adwarp on a cadet mission this morning and it used up one of my tickets, I now have only 5 left.

  • In addition, if you have no tickets left, the ad-warp button still appears and lets you watch an advert but then gives you an error message.

    It would be nice if the ad-warp button did not appear if you have no tickets left.

    They mean the orange button.
    It shouldn't actually be there as it would render cadet tokens obsolete. That's what the blue button is for.
    It needs to be hidden or removed.

    Same here. Used the adwarp option. Watched the ad, it ran the mission, gave me single bonus, and used a ticket!

    I sent an email to DB.
  • Ok, looks like if you click the warp button and the double rewards with ad, it works as intended. If you start with adwarp, it is messed up: using a ticket but no double rewards.

    All this on iPhone, not sure about other platforms.
  • We are looking into it.

    Thanks!
  • Either removal of the Ad-"Warp 1" button or the option to use Adwarp instead of a Cadet ticket would be an option @Shan - thats rather a gameplay decision it seems :)

    This has now been fixed, the option to use an ad to warp has been removed.

    Correction 01/10: using ad-warp will no longer consume a ticket.

    Except it hasn't been removed.

  • Still some odd issues indeed. If you use the adwarp option at the beginning, it will run the ad but not give you any benefit: it uses a ticket or you get an error message if you don’t have any ticket left.
  • Certainly not resolved, also this : 7rd44yelpcv6.png
  • Sorry everyone :(
    I misunderstood the fix that was done, the ability to do an ad warp remains but a ticket will no longer be consumed.

    Is that still the case after restarting your device?
    It could also be the case of an ad that just borked, it happens.

    Could you also try to restart your device, and should it happen again please provide detailed steps on what you did before that point? Thank you!

    This is really the intention? A possible 800+ chrons extra a day from ad warps of cadets mwf and 40+ extra shuttle boost packs a week on thursdays?

    Just so I'm clear... If this has truly been fixed, then am I correct in understanding that it is 100% DB's intention for players to be able to run cadet tickets non-stop? Because, as it stands right now, I can run 5 out of 6 cadet tickets. Then, with that one ticket left, I can run the "ad warp cadet offer" whenever it pops up, right up to the end of the daily changeover. I can run the regular ad warps, farming chrons and equipment today (shuttle boosts yesterday), with no corresponding reduction in my allotted cadet tickets for the day. Heck, I'm hearing some chatter from other captains that when they run ad-warps, it doesn't debit their ticket allottment at all. So as soon as the ad timer resets, they can run another (cadet mission every 20 minutes, basically, with no reduction in tickets).

    A glitch, as I'll continue to call it, further exacerbates competitive balance issue by letting captains dash through the store on a shopping spree for shuttle boosts all day on the first day of events... Do that enough weeks in a row and you'll be able to go a four-day faction event pumping through nothing but 4* time boosts.

    i think seeing the problems this is the best solution for now.
    Yesterdays update threw of the game balance to much. Now you just waste an ad-warp if used on a cadet mission. That's less bad then having an exploit to gain absurd amounts of resources.

    And i'm guessing to only way to do a proper fix would be a client update.
