    Also makes me wonder why it is so hard to implement a feature that was clearly in the game once already. Should be easy enough to go into your source control and grab the code for the feature and reimplement it the exact same way.

    Agreed. The beta had a simple working interface, would have been plenty fine for 2.1.

    That was originally addressed when people noticed that the 'feature' disappeared. It turns out it was not a planned 'feature' but a bug that was introduced upon fixing the bug the duty list returned the behavior to what you have today.
    It was not an intended 'feature' and the bug that was fixed just happened to have the side effect of giving us what appeared to be this feature. As this was not part of the original design or feature set they could not just leave it alone as other systems in the game were not written to handle or deal with this, they could have risked data lose problems as data was not setup to be persisted when hiding items.

    A button labeled for the tracker and checkboxes to toggle (iirc what the 'feature' included) don't just happen as a result of a bug. iirc it was given to us on purpose as a dev tool to bug test quests but they didn't realize we'd want to keep the feature. The code is there, it has (had) working functionality within the journal ui.

    Don't worry, SE is working to implement it. That means it might become available in 3 months with the majority of 2.1 content. Except then you'll have to wait until you gather 200000000 gilt put have the right to adjust what quests are shown. Then to actually use it, you have to go participate I. 15 "randomly occurring" fates. Well find out after 2.2 hits they SE thinks you'll actually get this feature unlocked 3-4 months after then officially implement it. Just like everything else...

    So... What you're saying is that it bugged and put check boxes by each quest, that when checked or unchecked would add or remove quests from the duty list?

    And that this was only a unintended bug that was completely coincedental?

    That is the most absurd thing i've heard today. That was an intended feature, as you can see by the development teams previous posts discussing "when this feature will return". Not "this bug that we fixed that did something cool". So before you speak out of your rear, for some reason trying to make an excuse for them, please get your facts straight.

    It wasn't a bug. It was a feature that they pulled because it introduced bugs, but it wasn't a feature that was introduced with bugs. I have to admit, the feature was nice, but it was still quirky and at times didn't work at all. I must imagine that they couldn't actually get it to work bug-free, and pulled this, as well as many other features, since the game itself was released with all sorts of holes, security exploits and driver issues.

    This is just ridiculous. This simple and very useful feature never should have been removed in the first place. Now it takes 7+ months to put it back in? Trying to get anything useful done around here is like pulling teeth.
