Empire Avenue – Mission Sharks

It’s been a few weeks now that missions for all is enabled on Empire Avenue. Enough time to learn on how it works and how to decide on whether you take a mission or not. For the most part, the missions work well and serve the purpose, in my case at least.

There are a few things that make me wonder. I run mostly small missions. Ten, maximum 20 rewards, because I still have to keep an eye on the Eaves spent. That has the advantage to take a quick and easy look at the mission and see who participated, and how. Of all missions I ran so far, none was completed by 100%. Some people just took the Eaves and ran. Is this ok because Empire Avenue is just game? Are these people the same way in real life? Not taking it exactly as it is required and just watch out for themselves?What would you call the same in real life?

As stated above, it is a few weeks now and there was enough time to learn on how this works. By now the mission thing should be an easy thing to understand, especially when it becomes a major “income source” for some. At the beginning, I had my own troubles with it. I saw a few Eaves and ran for it to find myself in a mission I could actually not do for one or the other reason. After a couple of days and a number of missions I have learned to read and understand what is required first before I click the link. Sometimes it happens that I am not able or willing to do the mission and then I don’t do it. I don’t take the Eaves for reading about it and I am not supposed to. I remember when the mission thing started and some people lost Eaves (and real dollar) the questions of calling out “the swindlers” was on the plate. I am not for that kind of thing. And after running a few missions on my own and getting a taste of what some people are up to, I still hesitate to do it, even though I know who is “out there for change”. Well, I know the few in my case.

I am wondering what other people have experienced and what is your opinion about this issue. Please leave your comment.
