This post is taken more or less in full (with some minor rewriting and additions) from my original work over at reddit
. I can tell this because it very faithfully includes two very particular errors, one which refers to information no longer even present in the game:
1. That VIP missions give you primarily yellow health bar enemies. At the time I thought that was the case, and never had the chance to update my image. The reality is that in general the enemy is typically a "high rank" red health enemy (a "Rite" wizard, a "Spy" shank, a "Survey boss", or others. Rarely, there will be a minor boss which will
have yellow health. So far I have only observed this on Earth, where you sometimes will fight an Archon)
2. That doing a certain amount of VIP missions gives you a bonus. This info is woefully out of date as the "bonus" text was removed from the grimoire cards some weeks back (as mentioned in the previous post), and was seemingly just an accidental leftover from a feature that never worked or was never included in the first place. There never was a bonus (as was indicated to me on reddit afterwards, but again, never got around to fixing it as I didn't think people would keep going back :)).
Personally, I don't mind the use of my info (crediting me would be nice though), after all I don't own the information about how patrol missions work in the game , but I feel like I have a responsibility to ensure it is correct. :) What does bother me slightly is the more or less copy-paste of /u/Gozumaki's icons from their prettier image
, which is technically
copyright infringement unless permission has been explicitly given. Now, I can't know if they have given permission or not, and it's not really my business to make claims on their behalf (I did notify them though), but I figured I should at least point it out.
