Reduced titan loot at 12h mark

We killed a rare 12* at the 12hr mark today and I got Reduced loot… you’ve got to be joking guys?!
13 hours since I rejoined Alliance… didn’t Merc elsewhere.

From your screenshots I can only assume that titan was killed a few minutes after you made screen shot but this would mean killed within 11 hours. As you are blocked for 12 hours the loot is reduced. When you re-joined was the titan already online? If not how long did it take for the titan to spawn? Unfortunately not all facts are proofed by the the pictures you sent…sorry.

Titan hadnt spawned yet when he rejoined. Was still few hours out.(what’s the 12 hr rule?, i only know the chest one)

That’s the point. You chest is blocked for 12 hours after you joined an alliance and during this time your loot is reduced. Wasn’t he claiming this?

There’s a reduced loot tier (like an escaped titan) when joining an alliance different than the chest cool down. This was another move to limit mercing.

I think this is what he is referring to. I wasn’t aware of what the timer was but I believe if he was loot tier 12, he’s saying he received loot tier 6 or whatever when granted the rewards.

So the greyed out titan chest doesn’t have anything3to do with reduced loot?

Loot tier 6 or 7… can’t remember what the bumped me down to. No titan parts either despite requisite poons used for level one.

I literally jumped in and out if alliance for 5 minutes. Didn’t join another as they were full and didn’t use a flag on another titan.

This ruling for loot should apply to the same timer as the greyed out titan chest. I mean really - how are we supposed to keep track of this? Bloody stupid.

Previous information about reduced loot telling about 20 hours not 12 but even if 12 hours is right You will have reduced loot for titan if you hit him early than is 12h after you join alliance. Not if you kill him in 12 hours. So if I understand it right and you do not wanna have reducet loot you cannot hit titan early than is 12h after you join alliance.

I was 13 hours back in Alliance when titan died. Titan popped up about 2 hours something upon my return.

@Snowdoggydogg You should submit a support ticket. There’s nothing that we can do on the forums to help.

Nope, greyed out titan chest isn’t related to reduced loot. See release notes for version 22:

If a player joins an Alliance after the Titan has already spawned, the player will get reduced loot from that Titan.

I’m going to need more than my Masters degree to figure this out going forward.

Merc’ing should entail physically attacking a titan. I literally left and rejoined same Alliance in a 5 minute window. I 'merced ’ nothing.

SG fix this…

Titan was hours away from spawning when I rejoined.

You can always check the reason for reduced loot tier from the Titan Hunt Results window (tap the question mark next to to the Reduced Loot Tier title). I hope this helps!

Not terribly helpful really.

Only helps you after the fact really… which given there’s an actual timer counting down on the titan chest. It’s confusing as hell.

So you get recognition for killing and it counts towards your titan chest goal but we kick you in the shins on the loot anyways for some undisclosed, immeasurable period of time.

The reduced loot to curb merc’ing is currently being implemented in a rather regressive and awkward way with little nexus to actual merc’ing.
