Yeah, I miss playing the quest mode, but with characters on the verge of earning a power feat, I don't want to chance playing. Hopefully a patch will come out soon.

This has happenned to me quite a few times now. Each time has been when the party failed the quest mode mission, but had experience points allocated. The game bypasses the reward screen, but the character advancement sheets show rewards have been reached, but there have been none actually awarded. Every new party in quest mode..

My experience has been that you can avoid this by choosing the forfeit option before you actually reach the end. Not sure why.

If you are victorious it doesn't seem to cause this error, so for now that might be a stopgap fix.

Thanks Kiirnodel, i will have to give it a try. I couldn't see a way to collect stuff for a new party and still succeed in the early period to get feat rewards. Ta

Same issues as above (several boons and power feats missing). Any idea if: (1) the patch will solve these issues retroactively; (2) should we wait until patch comes out; or (3) we'll have to restart our characters...

Any updates on when this issue will be addressed? It's pretty much stopped me from playing at this point as I don't want to miss out on leveling rewards or permanently impair my party.

I felt the same way you did -- had stopped playing quest completely since I was on the verge of leveling up for a feat reward I didn't want to miss. The forfeit during game does at least prevent this problem. It means you don't get any experience for defeating any banes that time, but your characters don't level up and don't miss out on rewards. You just continue to play until you beat the villian and only keep those games (when you have a feat reward approaching). I at least am back to playing with my now level 26 characters -- no more rewards worth having til level 30!

Does anyone have any idea if a character that this happened to is permanently screwed or would a fix retroactively return the skill? Unfortunately, I accidentally did this to one of my most high level characters and I would really prefer not to have to relevel my Seelah.

Previous level up fixes has not been retroactive. So it most likely is this way this time too. But the dev is developing character editor, so when it is ready it is possible to fix these kind of problems.

I sent my information off to Aarik.  He said the fix will not be retroactive.  Basically the three different groups I'm running (11 characters total - Meriseil & Kyra, the rest of the ladies, all the men) I'll have to start them all over at level 1 again.  I've missed several big rewards (card, power and skill).  I also haven't won a quest since this bug happened.  I keep running out of time.

Seriously? OMG this would be the third time that I've had to restart Kyra and Seelah from scratch (and they are level 22 at the moment!). I had a patch reinstall mean that I lost my Quest characters, I had the locked Quest character bug and now this! All of these issue purely due to the App, rather than anything I've done. Great. Oh, and I have a problem with Quest mode across devices - characters seem to get out of sync (but not all characters), so now I've realised it, I daren't use multiple devices for the same character. :(

The big problem with tablets is that the game stays in the backround if you don't completely close it and when you start playing with another device, the other is still open in the backround of another device and that can cause big havok...
One another problem is that the game sometimes lose Connection to game server (the is no player id in the settings screen) and that Also cause sync problems. But seem that those Are not so serious as the previous ones in above.
I am not sure, but could it be possible to include somekind of check, if the same account is allready Connected in, so that the user can force disconnect that previous Connection?

Is there an update for this? Also a release date for AD 4? I have this just sitting because I have done everything in story mode that I want to do and can't play quest mode anymore.

Happening to me as well. Gonna restart the characters and try the forfeiting before you lose method suggested above, tho it is still painful to miss out on that experience :(

That's not dissimilar to me. In the end, I just accepted that my locked characters are gone forever and started a new set of parties to re-level them. It's more fun than I thought it would be, but I'm spicing it up by buying 10-packs of treasure every 4500 gold (I don't do treasure in story mode). Reminds me of my days playing World of Warcraft!

From what I remember, failing the quest did not previously award XP. So the forfeit is the same as losing (running out of time) used to be. The change that happened, and what is causing the problem is that the game is awarding XP when it shouldn't be, and subsequently isn't going to the reward for the levels gained from that ill-gotten XP.

You are absolutely correct. It's all about the incorrectly awarded experience.

Had this happen to me, as well, on a level 39 character. Does that mean I'll never be able to get that skill feat? Cause that's a huge bummer. =/

Any information if forfeit helps if you lose the scenario or not? It is one thing to wait the patch and another just forfeit if you run out of time or something similar... Just wondering.

If you Forfeit, you lose the experience but retain any Boons that you have gained, which means that you don't miss out on Advancement Rewards (because you didn't get any experience, you didn't earn any ARs). Whereas if you lose the scenario or run out of time you will gain the experience but miss out on Advancement Rewards.

 

This situation sucks big time. I've just missed out on the level 5 ARs for 3 characters that I've had to restart multiple times due to other PACG bugs. Now I'll have to scrap these characters and start again, losing all the gear that I collected while I was repeatedly Forfeiting games to avoid missing ARs for levels 1-4. All that work wasted because I unexpectedly lost on the scenario that should have given my that important first Power Feat.

 

I don't know if the Devs are still paying attention to this thread but it's really, really important that they build a tool that fixes this issue retrospectively. Too many players are missing out on rewards that they should be getting. It should be a trivial matter to compare the number of actual Feats present on the Character vs. the number that should be there due to Character level. A simple flag to offer the missing Feats could be set to trigger the Feats Reward on the next Scenario played. It really shouldn't be hard to do.
