    in the "roadmap", it indicates "phase two of the Legendary Missions and a new progression system, plus seven freeplay events."
    Does anyone know what that actually means or implies?

    Also, unrelated, is there any respectable way to find world events? I hate the 6 world events daily that takes two hours to do.

    Nope, that's all we know at the moment.

    Based on what I'm seeing, no. There's no map indication, you just need to fly around and hope you stumble across them.

    I usually just start at fort tarsis then immediately go right as there's an event right there more often than not, then I fly north towards great falls and just continue down that path. If by some miracle I haven't gotten 3 events before I reach the top I continue to wrap left but I almost always have 3. At which point I zone out and start over again since you can't get more than 3 feats in a single run.

    I did my 3 today in under 10 minutes, I'm not sure how its taking you 2 hours to do 6.

    *shrug* Me and my buddy will fly around looking for them, and often go 10-15 minutes of that without finding a single one. We're not doing anything special or using a map, just flying around pretty much. I've literally given up on the 6 event one because it would simply take too long.

    Yeah that makes no sense to me, I'm pretty sure its damn near impossible to fly 5 minutes straight without hitting one yet alone 15+ unless you're somehow covering no ground.

    Like I said there's almost always an event to the immediate right of fort tarsis, I tend to stick to the right half of the map.

    This is false, it was always retroactive. They just didn't show you the quest until a certain part in the story which the community found stupid since you didn't know you needed to progress on it until much later. If you were actually doing a bit of everything and not trying to piss through the story as fast as possible then you were almost entirely finished by the time you hit it.

    The only change they made was showing you the challenges right off the bat or very early on.

    Has mention of it being both retroactive and glitched where progress was not saved. I am going to see it was always retroactive but bugs may have existed early on. The dates on those are 2-16 so it is within the early launch period.

    Well it was definitely on my side since I played from the early launch and when I got to this part I only had the free roam part to do (world events, chests, repairing 3 javelins which I did on npc in free roam cause I didnt play in group). Could have been bugged for some, but for me I was already almost done by the time I got there, and it was in the first couple of days of early access.

    I know right? It is almost if there are these things that make computer programs not function properly and they seem to have plenty occurrences in programs that do not have the best launch. Some people were not impacted by the bug. Some were. Some just misunderstood. Some rushed through things and didn't get much "passive" completion.

    I played in the early launch and my progress had already started when I began the quest.

    I started day 1 and all of mine were almost done save for a couple of specific things like multi kills since I was doing all the objectives while my group killed things.

    You're talking out of your ass here.

    Destructoid clearly states that some it did not give retroactive credit for. So it shows that people are not lying about it working for some and not others. So if it is all lies and nothing but lies why does one of your sources of proof support the lies? There are sources saying that some got retroactive credit, including one of your own.

    Some didn't. Clearly a bug in a product that had a less then stellar launch and development. The question is why do you hate so much that you are sticking to some irrational argument when clearly shown that you are wrong. Even one of your own sources indicates you are wrong. But yet you cling to being blinded by the hate.

    The game did not launch till the 22nd. Everything you provide indicates that things were changed prior to launch. It was in the early access phase. You can debate the merits of if that is a launch or not. However one of your sources, and the ones I provided, also indicate that some people already go retroactive credit prior to it working for everyone. None of them indicate they fixed it twice either. So nice try adding words and claiming it as a fact.

    From the Destructiod article you linked:

    The other big note is a fix for the Tomb questline, which is bugging some people. In short you have to do a handful of challenges to progress with the main questline, and in some cases people are finding that they didn't get credit for them retroactively. Now folks should have most of the challenges completed by the time they get the set of tasks.
    So maybe next time read the actual articles you link to make sure it doesn't prove what you are calling a lie. The destructoid article is not referencing it being added to the game and then fixed again. Because the date of the article is close to the dates of the other articles you posted as proof. They are referencing the same "Fix" and clearly indicates that some were getting retroactive credit. Unless of course you are now going to call one of your links a lie after defending it several times now.

    Again, did you read the articles you linked? The Destructoid article clearly links to a Day 1 patch (https://www.ea.com/games/anthem/news...ne-patch-notes). How can you have a Day 1 patch for the 22nd as you are arguing day 1 was prior to the 22nd?

    Also from the EA Anthem Day 1 patch page I just linked to we have:
    For those of you who have been playing the Early Access version of the game, we wanted to let you know that a Day 1 Patch is on its way. The patch will deployed before worldwide launch. On February 22, 2019, the game will include the following updates and our Live Service officially begins.
    It doesn't matter what you want to call it. EA, the developer, called it Early Access to the game. They considered the game to launch on the 22nd. You can hate all you want and twist everything to whatever allows you to hate. But at least follow what is laid out in articles you link to as "proof".

    Also note that the infographic you link to clearly says "Early Access" on 2-15. So why are you calling something a lie when your own proof says otherwise? You even typed the words Early Access. Yet you are trying to claim that it wasn't Early Access. If it was the launch on 2-15 why did you have to type Early Access? Are you that blinded by hate for Anthem or a need to troll that you can't see what is clearly spelled out before your own eyes.

    It isn't marketing talk. It was still Early access on the 15th. Hence why you yourself typed Early Access, the Destructoid Article you linked indicates a day 1 patch after the 15th, why the infographic you linked indicates Early Access on the 15th with a world wide launch on the 22nd. You even bolded the words Early Access. If you did not subscribe to Orgin Access Premier you did not have Early Access and had to wait until the 22nd.

    So again how did the game launch on the 15th if you didn't get access on the 15th just by buying the game? Could it be because it actually was an Early Access as you keep typing and bolding?

    I am not ignoring anything. I am not twisting anything. You are the one pretending that something doesn't exist and twisting it to mean whatever you want. The game launched on the 22nd with Early Access on the 15th for either 10 hours or the full game depending on what Origin service you subscribed to. If you just pre-ordered the game you did not get access on the 15th.

    You people sure love arguing nonsense. In the grand scheme of things it does not even matter. The game had much more serious issues that resulted in its demise.

    At this point I only wonder for how long EA will keep it alive and whether they will even consider relaunch.

Hell look at destiny1 its very clear they axed a huge chunk of their original start of game stuff and story very late in the process.
    True - most trailers/teasers have one or more disclaimers regarding not being representative of final quality, being a work-in-progress, being an engine-render and not actual gameplay, etc.

    However, Anthem had the opposite! It had a very visible "boast" at the beginning of the gameplay reveal:

    "Everything you are about to see was captured in-game running in real-time".

    For contrast, Cyberpunk 2077 went with "Work in progress - does not represent the final look of the game". Many, if not most, gameplay trailers/reveals don't have any disclaimers or boasts, so to explicitly state that the trailer is in-game and real-time does give off the impression that the developer wants to ensure the audience that this is not a "bullshot" video.

    The exact opposite was the case. I do agree with those who say the pre-launch there was plenty of gameplay footage much more representative of actual gameplay and graphics, so the case for misleading marketing isn't really there.

    The one party who has the most reason to be angry about this, in my opinion, is actually Nvidia - some of the people picking up fancy new computers and graphics cards are going to install this as the first game. For some the thrill of being Iron Man is enough, but many will have their first RTX experience with an uninspired and increasingly abandoned game.

    They're hiring specifically for Anthem, so it looks like they're willing to keep them afloat for a while.
