Re-enabling double VG rewards

EDIT/UPDATE, 01/04/2018 @ 1:47 p.m. PST:

The following rewards have now been added to the once-a-day vanguard requests for Broken Prison and RK-9 Kennel (Hard).

Broken Prison = 1,350 Metamorphic Emblems
RK-9 Kennel (Hard) = 4,500 Metamorphic Emblems

These will persist for the foreseeable future.

----

Hey everyone,

Double vanguard reputation and rewards have been re-enabled. The event that was in place unceremoniously expired at the turn of the new year and following some investigation, we identified the specific configuration settings required to re-enable it.

This weekend, starting Friday at 12 a.m. PDT, we will be running triple the amount of vanguard rewards to make up for the days during which the event was turned off.

Beyond this weekend, we're going to leave this event on for the remainder of the month (ending on January 30). Starting in February, we’ll be putting the event on a schedule (similar to how battleground jackpots are setup). This means they won’t be on full-time any longer, but we can have a bit more fun with them (like offering triple rewards instead of double) while mixing up our overall event calendar.

On an unrelated note, we’ll also be running a double drop event this weekend in Ghillieglade and Pit of Petrax. The specifics of these events will be announced in a news post shortly.

    Would be nice to have an event with double gear experience, or at least 1.5x

    @Spacecats What about VG rewards, which is metamorphic tokens for rkem and bp? RK has been out for over a month and we don't get any tokens from clearing it. In all other servers, you get 4500 tokens from clearing it.

    Assuming you get 1 clear a day, that's almost 150k tokens that people are missing.

    This came up before the New Year but unfortunately we weren't able to make it a reality. It's totally on our list, though!

    This is also being looked into.

    If am not getting this wrong then we are going to get triple vanguard rewards until 30 January? And on top of that double drop for Ghillieglade/Pit this week end?

    And here i was watching movies today thinking what to do without the vanguard requests that kept me busy in game.


    Either way, thanks for re-enabling the vanguard requests so fast even though the year has just begun and everything must be like some super monday came ten times at once.

    I think it's like this:

    1) Now it's back to double.
    2) This weekend it'll be triple.
    3) For the rest of January after this weekend, it'll be double.
    4) From February on, it'll be scheduled and not always-on (but when it's scheduled, it'll be sometimes triple, sometimes double).

    thank you but update vanguard shop please.... triple vanguard doesn't help when you're already maxed out in credits...

    Makes sense.

    I went back to read again and it says "this" week end for the triple event.

    Still.. this is surprising because at least i thought that we will not see any change until maybe tuesday? and at that time there might be some change that will end up with some glitch then the change will be reverted and so on.. But this is good news overall.

    Wondering about this as well

    As before, only reputation and item rewards are currently doubled and will be tripled during this coming weekend's event.

    So what your saying is now were gonna get less stuff overall. How is this beneficial at all and how is this supposed to be a improvement? We didn't get the best drops in dungeons and now you want to reduce vanguard rewards? Scheduled dungeons just forces people to play that specific dungeon if they want to get the same rewards that we used to. I could understand if you kept our usual double amount and then added stuff on top of it, but why this?
    What kind of improvement are you going to bring with jackpot dungeons? Will they actually have really useful stuff? like say giving 3-4 gold nocts or 3-4 strong braveries/canophoras or 3x gear exp or something along those lines. Because it'll have to be a actual good increase in rewards if your going to justify reducing something like that. You cant just throw in something like hey extra dragon scales or something.

    Also on the topic of vg rewards, what ever happened to RKHM's vanguard with metamorphic tokens, Every other region rewards 4500 metamorphics(Yes EU and RU as well as korea) each clear and we have the base stuff in NA. Why is that? Why is NA getting less stuff then the grindy Korean counterpart? They had this since the start of the patch as well so its not a later thing.

    Are you not happy with the double pop/gg drop? Oh man. They’re adjusting after celebrating the new year. They are working on adjusting things of that sort. You have too high of a standard.
