Pulled around 90af from lockboxes today and noticed it is counting towards the cap, as there is no way i have earned 188af from just events in one day..... This needs fixing asap....

Just got 100 arkforge from elite lockbox, and it did add that 100 to the cap.

How to fix it: trashcan the cap. Entirely do away with the whole ridiculous thing.

I can also confirm --
Bought a Soleptor crate and got 100 af and it counted towards my cap. Also noticed there is a visual bug when you log out and back in it resets to 0/0. The next time you earn forge it then goes to it's actual count.

Example -- I had 60 af, got the 100 from the crate it went to 160/500. Logged out and back in and it was at 0/0. Ran a co op, got 11 forge, the display then said 171/500.
We couldn't test the cap on pts because everyone on pts has a patron pass.

* The cap does not include Arkforge from lockboxes, daily and weekly rewards, or Arkforge purchased from the store.

Not true, it's counting on everything. :mad:

At least you have a cap. I logged in today with nice red status on my arkforge with a cap of 0/0. :mad:

That changes back to normal when you earn af. It's just a visual glitch. Your cap is there too. =)

Lockboxes and Chimera explain the problem, almost time to play on an alt for the rest of the week.

The 50AF I got from an Elite lockbox counted towards my AF cap as well. Shouldn't AF from all lockboxes be excluded from the cap?

They're addressing the issues with this Hotfix #3.....or so the patch notes say anyway.

Just a guess but the answer is probably "totally ignore it because it will correct itself next week".

LOL, yea, probably right . guess until I hit the cap, not a big deal, but only need like a little over 100 to hit it

It's probably like Rip said, ignore until Monday.

If the hotfix worked, it'll slow things down, but you'll probably hit cap anyway. Not much anyone can do.

Go take the weekend off.
