Quests are working fine on Kongregate. From what I've heard on the other games/servers, the quests aren't worth the effort and I must agree. Here are the quests we at [KEY] have completed and are working on.
Although the easy and medium tier challenges have been good and are at least fun in the sense they reward us as a syndicate for doing more of what we already do, that last challenge takes the absolute p**s. I mean, do insane number of jobs in your highest city (an extension of one of the daily challenges) would be fine in my books, but complete jobs you haven't already completed?? That's ludicrous for higher level players that aren't paying to level. For example, I'm about 20 levels off my next city at level 8155. Yes, not a massive level but still it will take me more than 2 days to reach that new city and the new jobs associated with it. So I am effectively unable to contribute to this quest without dipping into my pocket if I want to level up (not going to happen, certainly not outside of raid season). So, that's annoying point #1 on that quest.
Annoying point numero 2 is that even if I did unlock a job within the time of the challenge, I can only contribute 140 jobs before I am again useless to further completing the quest. This raises an even more pressing issue, if we say that everyone in my syndicate was magically my level, then even if we all completed a new job 25*140=3500. Still well short of the 10,000 required for the achievement. To actually get the achievement with a syndicate of people at my level, then you'd need all 25 to do 3 new jobs IN THEIR ENTIRETY. That's a little silly in my books. Particularly when we factor in (I think it's 50 levels per new job - I might be wrong as I'm at the end of Antarctica so I can check when the different unlock levels) about 150 levels required in a 2-3 day period (50 levels a day is fair shifting even during raids I might add - or at least for me it is) and a total of about 1.4 Million energy (140*10,000 as a rough low end estimate. It would actually be a lot more in my synd as I'm mid-lower level in their ranks).
So yeah, not entirely happy with the new quests. Certainly good to see new features and that you guys are still putting work into the game. But this job related quest in particular needs revising. I also recommend potentially revising any level related quests where new unlocks are required to get the ball rolling as the non/low spend players will be less than useless. As for the repeated quests, ehh they're a bit boring but at least for fights/boss attacks we were doing a lot of that anyway. I assume these are just the intro quests anyway so it's not like this will be all we ever see. *fingers crossed*
EDIT: Repeating the last job on my job list is now counting towards this quest. Not sure why this wasn't happening earlier or if this is a patch. Still, I agree with Rockwell. 1 job for 170 energy in my case is a bit steep.
