Re tssk points...have noticed that todays rewards weren't added to my research points.
I was looking at level 2 where I had 547 on Tuesdsy and still have the same today even though there were 15 pts on offer. Think level 1 never updated either.
Not overly fussed but wonder what else isn't working.
Also noticed that the Stickers are eating up valuabled dz bag space.
Can't see any value in them at all as you can put favourable comments in your logs....but they are now detracting from using dz tools used to take over zones or change clan control.

We will never know what doesn't work until it doesn't work.

Thee missing research materials has been corrected and todays research has been reset so you can claim it correctly today.

You may remove any stickers you receive by discarding them.

I tried the discard but doesn't appear to be working.
Unsure if pretty much instant or need to wait awhile.

It's instant.
Sticker Discard

Once discarded an item cannot be retrieved.

On the dropdown next to the sticker, select the number you would like to discard.

Not my birthday. As the principal developer I get all sorts of things :-) A free party hat is just one benefit.

Is it just me or are others struggling to get green level 2 research material points in comparison to the others?

It felt like forever before I could finally trade for a facade and I feel it will be another 2 years before I can get a dragon one even though I have heaps of all the other points.

I don't suppose there could be an option to trade one level points for another? Like 1 level 5 = 50 level 2 or even just 10?

I don't have any plans to trade RMs for different levels.

This is what I have, are your in line with the ratio or far out of whack?
Count Name
2,612 Research Material Level 1
788 Research Material Level 2
442 Research Material Level 3
230 Research Material Level 4
68 Research Material Level 5

Getting RM1s will be more frequent if you are completing RM1 tasks and quests and not able to do ones that are higher.

There are 40 RM2 tasks which will reward RM1s and RM2s (and of course RM3,RM4, RM5 tasks also reward RM2s). These are randomly chosen each week for your tasks (excluding the fact that you cannot have a duplicate between weeks).

If you have ideas for more RM2 style tasks (or RM3, RM4 or RM5) make the suggestions and we'll see if they can be incorporated to help you move more towards your goals.

I have:
1699 Level 1
263 Level 2
419 Level 3
234 Level 4
80 Level 5
I've gained most of those Level 2 points from the seasonal specials in the top left corner since finally purchasing a lyrebird facade.

I am aware of the way points are awarded. It just seems that I get a lot of the other level points but not green. It's been an issue since the start. Unfortunately I don't live in Tasmania so finding multiple fancy (non trad, multi & mystery) caches in a week is pretty impossible, which is what I tend to get a lot of in my research tasks each week.

Thank you for your feedback. Very much appreciated. If I think of any other ideas I'll let you know.

OK, that does look out of whack with what I originally planned.

I do have other ideas in plan, but as usual too many things, not enough time.

I might have to drop a catchup orb to help out those who are getting unlucky, miserly drops.
