I am not putting this in the bug thread because there are theories that this is an intended feature. I think those theories are wrong but I don’t want to discredit them without evidence.
Anyways, pretty much any time I arrange a meeting with the burner phones, the corresponding objective doesn’t complete. Other people have reported this, but other people say it works fine. There are other places in the forum and elsewhere that describe this. This is still the case after the May patch that allegedly fixed any problems with the phones.
The big problem is that I have found no consistent explanation for why this happens. There are more theories about this burner phone problem than there are about Jack the Ripper. I have heard that this is a feature that requires you to remember the exact location of meetings, that it is a bug with no cause behind it, that you can’t kill the target before arranging the meeting, that you CAN kill the target, etc. It seems that nobody has stumbled across an explanation and obviously IOI has not been forthcoming with one either - we wouldn’t have so many “explanations” otherwise.
Has anyone come up with some sort of definitive evidence in this regard?
