The game team has resolved this issue. Keys will be distributed via in-game messages and the quest timer will be extended.
More information and timeline here.
*This includes currently unclaimable keys as well*
As previously announced, the team will be distributing an additional point toward milestones to anyone who completed the Absorbing Man fight in the first step of the Winter of Woe.
This point will be distributed at a later time as it requires the team to pull and analyze data.
The timeline has not been set, but work has started.

Excessive filters ingame and now Alliance chat is filtered?! Why?

Posted this earlier but realize this may be a better place for this critique of the chat system.

Title says it all. Look, I get that kids play this game and I also appreciate that creeps have a harder time trolling for that mythical woman that just really loves D pics from strangers (although these ppl are still routinely all over chat and they will ALWAYS find a way to post about their dongs), but every update seems to get more and more hashtaggy. I cant tell you (actually can and will) how frustrating it is to get filtered every other sentence while carrying on an innocuous conversation in global, and now it's gonna happen in ALLIANCE CHAT?! Theres a reason we don't let kids in our alli; we joke around and use adult language, because we are old enough to handle it. Some of the filters seem to come out of nowhere, our chat app is whatsapp which has better features than Line but it is filtered in global. Can you imagine how hard it's going to be to get new recruits on our chat? A chat we wouldn't need to use by the way if the ingame chat, filters notwithstanding, wasn't an absolute pain with a short character limit and takes like 10 seconds to post anything while clearing the next sentence you have typed when it finally does. It's like being forced to carry on a conversation in slow motion.

First off, you guys need an OPTION to disable offensive language. Turn on the filter client side! I want to participate in actual conversations with the community without having to tiptoe through the hashtag minefield. At one point (thankfully this is fixed) the number 27 was filtered. Would get your whole sentence hashtagged. Not 26 or 28. Just 27. Again it's thankfully fixed but that was a real filter for months and it goes to show you guys really should not be trying to case by case filter out words... it ends up with so many frustrating misfires. Posting names is still a problem, just because I mention a celebrity in the news doesn't mean I'm giving away my irl name and need to be filtered. And what if I am, or some 12 year old? What could possibly be the issue there, someone's gonna friend me on Facebook?

I appreciate the bug fixes in the new patch you folks did a good job of fixing a lot of the problems with lag and the evade glitch... Even if yall introduced em lol. the game is running better and more fun to play. Please work on a new solution for chat I for one would really like to converse freely without wondering if I'm going to have to retype a sentence from scratch while trying to figure out which word is banned. And for the love of all that is holy remove filters from non global chats especially alliance chat and PM. This wasn't a problem before.

    Honestly, the in-game chat system is flawed in many ways. Over half the stuff that comes out of 'global' chat is just utter nonsense (you know what I mean). Besides the kids, the beggars and creeps, there's the tiny character limit which only usually allows for 1 or 2 sentences at most.

    This is why lots of alliances use LINE and other group chat apps as they understand just how flawed the chat system is.
  • Absolutely. But I have had some nice convos on global and ultimately that's where many recruit. It'd be nice to talk freely on there without all the bs. Mostly though im just really upset now that the Alliance chat which should be at the discretion of each alliance is now filtered as well
