First, I should state I first posted this as a ticket, and I'm copying it below. If you haven't noticed, the rewards recently changed places in Athena's Fortune Emissary's monthly rewards. Feel free to read my 'ticket' to garner an idea of what the issue is:
"Okay, I'd like to start out by saying: BLOODY PIRATES!!
I'll refrain from stating the long line of very colorful things I would like to say concerning this underhanded move you've made (as a company), switching out the reward of the Magpie's Glory Hull before the end of the month. But I will say, that it did not go unnoticed. I know this is the case, because sources everywhere still list it as belonging in the 'Guardian' category of the Emissary Ledger Rewards. This is, of course, proof beyond the note of mine own observations.
You have, in this moment, forsook players who worked toward this reward. For the other emissaries, it has remained that the Figurehead was the highest reward, and the hull the secondary. You failed to be honest and upfront with your players, changing it without notation or warning. For players such as myself, the acquisition of this aforementioned reward has now been pushed months out. Whereas it would otherwise have been acquired the following cycle. It has not, it must be said, gone unnoticed that you have also pushed the season timeline out another four weeks besides.
If your intention is to retain and entice your player base, you are making great strides against it. Frankly, I imagine it will not be long before streamers, your very partners included, make note of this to their communities. Have fun dealing with that fallout.
Many thanks to you and yours for granting such a special "gift" to your players. Merry Late Seasons Greetings, you dirty, soured-coffee spitting bilge rats."
So, in summary, Rare elected to swap the Magpie's Glory Hull (seriously, that name..) with the Magpie's Glory Figurehead. This is no issue for those who constantly get 'Legend' in Athena's Fortune Emissary each month, but for those of us who may struggle to find the time or ability to (Hiya Reapers!) maintain a 'Legend' status in Athena's Fortune, we now find ourselves facing months more work to eventually get what would otherwise have been acquired by month's end. For me, I was set to get it, but when I checked my status, suddenly I no longer saw 'Magpie's Glory Hull', instead there was 'Magpie's Glory Figurehead'.
My suggestion? Put the rewards back, and don't ever do something so pointless and underhanded again.
Or do whatever it is your wallet desires, I suppose.
