When do Reward Packs appear?

Reward packs (a standard prize in small coalition events, with 4 levels) don't seem to show up in the Market to accept, for quite a while, often an hour or more. Refreshing doesn't help.


So, what causes the reward pack to finally appear? Why don't they appear as soon as you have won them? And if you get more than one, are you supposed to get them all or just the best one. Seems to me sometimes I get both, sometimes only one, though it's hard to tell because they take so long to show up.


TIA. You folks are great!

Good evening Ike,

every coalition member receives a reward pack as soon as the necessary mission points are reached. A standard or larger coalition will usually complete the mission, therefore every member receives all four packs: basic, standard, exclusive and elite. I haven't paid much attention to any delay, but if there is one at all, it certainly isn't an hour, perhaps a few seconds.

Cheers

Timed my last pack (our coalition only gets one or two per event), it took 4 hours to show up. :)

Can other members of your coalition corroborate this, or is this just occurring with your rewards.?

I'll be happy to ask. I'll respond here when I've heard something. (Is there any way to message the whole coalition? Currently, I only message our hegemon.)

No, but your Hege can ask around.

I'll be offline for the evening, but will check in early tomorrow (or another mod will pick up this thread in the meantime :-).

No problem... communication in our coalition generally takes a while anyway. :D

Not a problem, Ike. A few more of my mod colleagues will be on tomorrow, perhaps one of them has experienced this issue and has a suggestion. You could perhaps create a small time table with screenshots when this occurs during the next coaliton mission, Customer Support (if it comes to creating a ticket) is always thankful for any details.

Cheers

Still haven't heard back, but supposedly won two reward packs 5 1/2 hours ago, and after refreshing, neither has yet shown up. And for the previous two I won, I did get the standard, after 5-6 hours, but never got the basic. I took a screen shot of the standard pack I got; only time stamp was my computer's, but I hope that will work. I wanted to take a screen shot of the events screen too, to show how many hours that same time was into the next coalition event (since they each run 24 hours), but there is no option for a screen shot, alas, on the events page.

Lol, after 7 3/4 hours a pack finally showed up... the basic one this time. I'll keep looking for the standard one.

Could it be that this pack is for the next Mission that's currently running?

Hello Ike,

There is a way to message your whole coalition in-game (if you are referring to in-game messages on your comment above).

When you click on the messages icon and you get the messages board click on the compose message button: http://prntscr.com/ejsal9

Click on the coalition tab and this window pops up: http://prntscr.com/ejsaxx

Select whatever rank you want this message to be delivered to, or unselect the rank or ranks you don't want to see this message (personally I unselect the scholars when I send coalition messages), click send to all, type your message and when you are done click ok.

That way your message will be sent to the whole coalition (if you have selected all the ranks that are there).

Thank you for the info! However, after clicking 'compose message', the coalition button was not clickable.


And the standard pack showed up overnight, sometime between 10 and 20 hours after I had earned it. I don't think these packs can be from the current coalition event, since I have 0 points in the event that's been going on while I have eventually received the two packs. So they have to be from the previous event, no?

Perhaps my coaliltion message button is greyed out because my rank isn't high enough? Rank is commandant.

Hmm, perhaps your suggestion *is* the answer. When the current coalition event ended, it showed I got two reward packs, even though my individual contribution was 0. So the packs may be given out as earned, not at the end of the event, unlike all other events.

Rewards are given out as earned, it's not a tournament; as soon as a specific threshold is reached, the awards are disbursed to all coalition members.

Yes depends on your rank. Only polemarchs and hegemons can send coalition messages. Not sure if this is a setting that can be changed by the heg so that lower ranks such as commandants can send coalition messages or if that is a standard feature from Plarium.

Don't really remember a setting like that back when I was heg of my coalition.

As for the packs yes they appear after every tier of the coalition mission is completed. Regardless if you participated in the coalition mission or not.
