    Stuff like this is happened before, I wouldn’t   be surprised if they gave a blanket compensation. Probably not equal to what everybody lost in vault tokens… If they do it at all.

    Same here. Beat the 5* node and got a post-event stockpile token. I'm not sure if this had any bearing, but I did spend 100HP on the vault when it went live last night before playing the event (this was what caused the Strange Sights vault bugs on its first run, but those had gone live early and had the different mechanic of needing to earn a token to open each vault first.)

    Compensation.....like for the Main Event Hulk PVP, which rewarded expired tokens instead of Hulk and Friends vault tokens?

    Oh, they would have had to acknowledge the error first.  Which never happened.

    On the other hand, it doesn’t really matter whether my 2*s come from vaults or expired tokens.  I sure won’t be buying from the vault though.

    Hi Everyone. It would appear that the 5-Star Essential mission is giving out tokens to The Hunt's Vault, as opposed to the intended Store. A fix is being implemented, however the earliest it can be added is Wednesday's daily patch. After this patch is integrated, players will receive the correct tokens to the cover store.

    Please note though that the Vault tokens still work, they will just go to the previous run of the event's Vault, instead of this run's cover store. Apologies for the confusion.

    Thanks @Brigby, to clarify, do you mean that from Wednesday's patch forward the 5* node will offer the correct token and that any one that received the wrong token will now receive an equal amount of the correct tokens in compensation? Or does this only apply to the remaining token awarded from the 5* node on the last day of the event?

    Normally I'd be happy with either, but (correct me if I'm wrong) the vault tokens don't give us the chance for a legendary token like the store token does, right?

    In case there was any doubt, the daily sub token also is an expired store token.  Until Wednesday I suppose.

    The daily sub reward token also goes to the expired store.

    Weird- I got 3* Magneto from both the daily sub token and the 5E in sub 2.  

    I can’t see the odds myself, but the release stores give new characters at the same rate as all other latest 4’s (3x).  It doesn’t matter in this case, just FYI.

    Except that we are not being granted vault tokens.  We are being granted expired store tokens.  Much worse odds.

    I don't have one of these tokens to confirm, but how so?

    Yes, that two to three chances at pulling the LT which might be a 5* completely goes away, and for some players/rosters that is all they care about. Even though it would be really low odds of mattering. But isn't the expired store about a 7.x% chance at a 4* pull (plus the slight chance at a BH) when the vault is only 5% (plus or minus what you already pulled)?

    I used mine on the vault.  Got a Coulson and BH Mockingbird.  Much better than fury, venom and Ghostrider.

    Got a St4r Lord from my expired token, so I'm not exactly complaining. Nothing in that vault that I'm particularly coveting.

    To which hoard is my token going?

    Apparently all tokens (even sub event rewards) are going to the Vault as opposed to the Store. Their titles are also confusing because it's a "Taco Vault" not a "Taco Store." I'm guessing the nomenclature got reversed somewhere back down the road. Looks like things can't be fixed until Wednesday.

    EDIT: From @brigby in the General thread (why is there a General thread? It is a mystery.):

    I've since opened a ticket with customer service and am going back and forth with them. Giving them details and screenshots should be enough I would think.

    [Merged two threads on this.  Please see Brigby's reply above.  This affects the tokens received from the 5* essential node only, devs are aware, and this cannot be corrected any sooner than tomorrow's daily patch.  -Dayv]

    At least for me it's not just the 5* node. The token from placement in the sub went to the same stockpile vault.

    Yeah, I'm afraid @Brigby is incorrect on that point.  I had the same experience as genapp.
