Why does every quest lower Jaeger’s rep

1 : Anonymous2021/07/31 15:25 ID: ov93kw

I swear almost every quest I do for Prapor or Therapist always drops Jaeger's rep 2 or 3 points. Why is that? I'm trying to get him to level three, but his quests are so obscure and weird it's hard to actually complete them Is there a lore reason or something that makes that fat piece of shit such a dick

Read his mission messages, he hates every other trader except mechanic I'm pretty sure.

Prapor's quest "Perfect Mediator" has every trader except for Jaeger as a requirement so the feeling is probably mutual

That's fucking dumb as hell. Why?

Dumb why?

Prapor is is a former police, but now he is trading Russian made guns to whoever has the roubles.

Jaeger? He is idealistic man, that just want's to protect his home and hates this war entirely.

Jaeger has the least enjoyable quests, change my mind.

ID: h77od81

I fucking hate Jaeger. Literally doing the most difficult quests for the shittiest rewards Like what the fuck am I gonna do with a survival lighter I already got 50 zibbos you stupid fuck

ID: h78nqn3

Literally went into a raid with my friend so I could shoot him in the leg to complete the kill scavs while in pain quest lol

he is based

Jaegers early quests suck. The ones you get later in his task line are pretty fun and give some really good rewards.

Jaeger has the least enjoyable quests, you can't change my mind.

ID: h77vz28

I probably cant change your mind, but I like how jaeger quests are at least unique. Kill 40 scavs, or get X quest item quests are kinda boring since theres like 30 of them

ID: h77w75s

Just because they're unique doesn't make them good.

Big facts

ID: h77nigx

Jaeger: "I need you to run out in a field and leave food somewhere without armor while dehydrated with a bolt action sniper with no ammo in it next to a player scav with a pilgrim backpack."

Me: fine.

completes quest

Jaeger: Here is a splint and 4,127 rubles. Don't forget to take your 22xp as well.

Me: ....

ID: h791e9m

I'd rather fight pmcs in dorms with a tremor than go kill more scavs on shoreline with a different random piece of gear. Those quests are boring and unfun.

ID: h797io7

No one likes jaeger, honestly his introduction was when I really started becoming pessimistic about this game.

ID: h77v6wb

Unpopular opinion: I like Jeager's quests.

ID: h77yr6w

Please explain to me how I like a solo player shall break my arm and get tremmors and then kill 2 PMC:s all by myself ?

Because Jaeger is a fat loser who thinks he’s edgy and mysterious sitting in his jack shack in the woods demanding you bring him more Cheetos.

Pretty sure Nikita said that when the game is finished it won't be possible to have every trader at max level. Completing certain tasks will piss off other traders. Maybe this is their way of testing that mechanic.

Jaeger sucks though, worst quests that give the lowest amount of rep.

To sell more copies of EoD

7 : Anonymous2021/07/31 23:01 ID: h794oa3

Yeah, this new wipe really fucked my Jaeger progression. His missions are just genuinely unfun. I do not want to do them. But I have to do them or the game becomes stagnant and boring.


8 : Anonymous2021/07/31 17:26 ID: h780r7p

It is just another way to incitive standard player to upgrade to EoD like many other mechanics in this game (stash, containers etc...)

Basically : Make the game frustrating so people throw money instead of grinding like a madman.

ID: h781ku7

for what? for lvl 2 jaeger? you still need to do a ton quests for him anyway if you want lvl 4 with him. and when you lvl 40 you already done with most of them. i guess if you bad at this game you feel angry at this quests and that you NEED him to your hideout. but. this game never was advertised as "easy" game. you know that this game gonna spit on you all the time and shit all over you just for fun. so just get over it and stop blaming others (bsg at this time).

ID: h784zfx

I've been playing this game for more than 3 years i got up to lvl 62 and Kappa. Stop guessing dude.

I'm just aware of how game designs work and i watched Nikita's game dev conference where he goes in detail about the designs he learnt on contract wars to get people to put more money than they usually would.

I'm sorry i upset you, you may or may not agree with this system, but it is what it is.

ID: h791bf5

0.25 rep would push me to jager lvl 4 so yes its pay to win.

can there be a rule to stop crying about Jaeger, its the majority of the sub at this point

ID: h78gsjt

The majority of this sub is complaining it's the only thing the mods allow half the time

Yes. There is a lore explanation. He's a dick.

Jaegar’s quests are absolute bullshit I’ve only gotten most of them done by complete accident. I’ve never really actively tried to do them. I feel bad for the standard players that have to grind through some ridiculous quests just for meager amounts of rep.

12 : Anonymous2021/07/31 21:33 ID: h78ufxg

because the task system is really poorly designed

13 : Anonymous2021/07/31 22:42 ID: h792hva

Because Jaeger is a stupid old shut in who hates everyone so just shut up and bring him his food and porn.

14 : Anonymous2021/07/31 23:09 ID: h795ieg

I want to believe that his tasks are sort of place holder because his real tasks and relationship with the player is more "main" story centered. If he were to be like your Obi wan character, then you messing with the dark side(other traders) would drop some rep.

15 : Anonymous2021/07/31 23:23 ID: h7971s4

To encourage you to buy EOD.

16 : Anonymous2021/07/31 23:33 ID: h7985oa

It's so stupid. I got him to LVL 2 and since completing other traders tasks I am now back under LVl 2 with him....wtf

17 : Anonymous2021/07/31 23:59 ID: h79b3pt

Yeah I don't remember it being this bad last wipe. Did they Atta h negative Rep to more tasks this wipe?

18 : Anonymous2021/07/31 18:22 ID: h787p8v

Thats part of the RPG aspect of the game. With standard account trader rep is a much larger part of the game as you dont just get free rep from paying real $$. Levelling traders is much more difficult and has more decisions to be made depending on who you want to lvl up.

ID: h7888bs

Yea I guess that's valid. I mean I feel like it's also used as a trick to make players feel like they need to buy EoD

This is coming from someone who has done two wipes with standard edition and two with EoD. The difference between the two is unbelievable. I'm not a super hardcore player, but it has just made the game much more fun overall I imagine if I was able to play the game more like a content creator or streamer it wouldn't be that bad But now that I have EoD it really seems like they made the game to almost subtly push you to buy EoD I have seen some quotes from Nikita that have mentioned how he's learned how to subtly push players to spend more IRL money on games too

I could be reading or I could just be a salty Rat, but this is just my opinion on Trader rep and EoD

ID: h7893vp

Yeah I started with standard and upgraded stage by stage with the wipes over the years. I really miss actually having to make decissions with the standard account that doesnt even remotley cross your mind with EOD. The smaller stash really makes you think about what you keep and hoard, cant just stash shit for future quests because you have so much room. What you keep actually matters. And with the traders it makes you actually decide how you want to play and who you want levelled up. I bought the game for the stupid hardcore rpg aspect and I wish i could switch back to standard without buying it again. But thats just me.

You need to look up which of prapors tasks are needed for kappa because there are several that lower jaegers rep that are NOT needed for kappa

ID: h784hw6

Kappa is irrelevant to most people. L71 is a joke.

ID: h78by2r

Nobody is going to be hitting 71 bud.

ID: h77yf0x

Honestly. I probably should do that. Not because I'm ever gonna get kappa, but just because I fucking hate doing Jargars quest but he also has some good trades

20 : Anonymous2021/07/31 20:49 ID: h78pc07

I use to play this game with 3 other guys, all of them stopped playing this wipe because the game gets insanely repetitive and Jager makes it remarkably worse.

21 : Anonymous2021/07/31 22:13 ID: h78z6re

I skip any quest that says negative for yaeger lol never again will I go against yaeger lol
