Daily Milestones

Today I did the Daily Deadpools only to find that the Daily Milestones wouldn't be reset for another hour. When and why did they change it so that they don't both reset at the same time? I'm personally annoyed by this change, it's going to make me wait an extra hour to play the Deadpool Dailys or else it'll add a lot of play to reach the requirements for the rewards. I really hope this was a one off error and not a permanent change.

    I don't think it's anything so intentional so much as the (unexpected) impact of the bi-annual Daylight Savings Time impacts.  Deadpool daily is an hour earlier than normal right now, since the US Daylight savings happened Saturday night.  Once you go through DST (if you do), then it's back to normal.  If where you are doesn't do it, then Deadpool is now just an hour earlier for half the year.

    As for Daily Milestones, I think this is the first time we've had DST since their inception.  They may correct it at some point, or it may be an hour off from Deadpool for 6 months.  We'll have to wait and see

    I noticed this as well.  While the DDQ correctly reset its timing after the US end of DST, the milestone reset remains unchanged, which leads to an hour of not getting credit for daily milestones.

    While it may not impact everyone, I had to delay playing when I wanted to this morning.  I enjoy not having to worry about milestone achievements whilst playing PVE or PVP, and taking my time to do it right with DDQ.

    Please kindly pass on to the appropriate folks that Milestone resets should be set back an hour.

    Thanks!

    The sudden lack of coordination between the reset of the DDQ and Daily Quest was the worst mildly inconvenient part of my weekend.  It took a day to adjust. Horrifying.

    Except it happens every six months like clockwork for the last 2800 days or so.  The regularity of this bug would let you think you could mark the passage of time.

    I believe it also affected the Ghostpool daily spicy token reward.

    Could be wrong but I think it has to do with DDQ being on a 5 day timer overall, where as daily quests and spicy tokens are only on a daily timer 🤷‍♂️

    Yes, we had DST on Sunday so I imagine that is what is probably happening here.  I will pass along your note.  Thanks!

    Now that Europe has switched to DST, the DDQ timer and the daily milestone timer are off by one hour :(

    It's been two weeks now.  Any updates on the milestone reset?  @LakeStone  I've legit almost missed DDQ a couple times now because I can't play it when I would normally play it.
