so as the title implies, for 9 months, if not a bit longer. I have been trying to deal with an issue that is simply not being fixed. I ALREADY tried 2 times at separate intervals to get it resolved through support. I had tried reinstalling the game twice already. I even switched from Xbox 1 to the new Xbox series x. Still it persists! now I'm very patient cause I know things like this takes a while. However, I'm simply sick of having to grind out my affinity normally while I see my friends boosting past the mastery levels, I'm sick of having to go all the way to round 14 on normal sanctuary, or round 10-12 on elite to just get a descent amount of affinity. For focus or mastery. Meanwhile, I'm stuck in support limbo/negligence to just get any sort of response to my issues. Just to clarify the bug a bit more. Affinity boosters, be it from daily login to buying, to being gifted, or even claimed from twitch or xbox game pass, would not work any longer than 1 mission. so say that I spend 30 mins in sanctuary, I would of only get 30 mins of affinity boost, then it would disappear, as if it got used. Also no, I long since checked that it was not just a visual bug. It would no longer show up that I have it. It would not level up my stuff as fast as it would in that 1 mission. The strangest part about this, is that the event/community affinity boost would work.
Also for the record, no. This is NOT THE ONLY BUG. I also face about 2 other constants while I'm dealing with the most egregious bug/issue. One of the other issue/bug I'm dealing with is not being able to invite other people to my group. now for this 1, it could simply be my router/connection but I am able to work around it and oddly enough, since the latest update it has been working (aside from communication friends list not showing up at all) to some extent, I am able to invite from the chat lobby which is a good thing because it used to be that in a rare blue moon, id be able to invite. Just to clarify the bug a bit more, if I was in a lobby or starting up a mission, in relay or dojo, id be able to invite ONLY THEN. not before, if I'm in my ship. I used to occasionally in a blue moon be able to do that. I've already made my peace with this bug as it is more likely a problem on my end.
The third bug I been coming across is not being able to use shatter burst on the railjack. The ability x really in railjack only, while piloting the railjack. The ability for whatever reason, will not work, this is a brand new bug, that came up since the new update. I used to be able to use the ability, but now, no longer can.
Now to sum this all up. For about 9 months (which is when I first submitted the help request, but in actuality it has been 1 year) affinity boosters have not worked what so ever for me. I do believe if I really wanted to, I could make a case on this. legally. I've also been graced with a bug that 90% of the time, wont let me invite other people to my group, which I believe is SOMEHOW being resolved somewhat. Now a new bug has came up in which I can't use an ability while piloting my railjack, which as far as I can search, hasn't come up anywhere else, when I tried searching if someone else has the same issue.
If anyone wants to see proof of this, I can try to make a video and post it, on YouTube, or I can take pictures of these bugs. As I said in the start, I tried going to warframe support twice already
