Hey guys, me and my friend have pretty much been playing non-stop together for the last few weeks, and a while ago I asked him if he felt like trying (HARD) missions, but it seems he doesn't have them, or have them unlocked atleast, I was wondering if anyone knows how he can unlock them, because I have no idea, when the first (HARD) one came I already had it ready for picking whenever I liked, his MR rank is 1478, and he's I think second lieutenant(Whichever is the 3rd rank too lazy too check right now :P). Thanks for any help guys and girls~
Are you trying to do it for fun or are you serious about that mission? because 1478 is seriously too low for that mission. You will need an 8 players room and get your best aircraft if you are going to try to get an A or S rank.
And I have no idea why that mission doesn´t appears in your friend´s game
Nono, we're doing it for fun, and yes I didn't even know they had too be unlocked either, and I did see once a 1450 something host a TML HARD once, so its not MR probably, probably rank, and he's 1st lieutenant*.
Ok, we found a possible outcome on how it can unlock, my friend stated that when he got on today too play, the 3 HARD missions were added too his missions choices, so we think it gets unlocked after a specific amount of time, but this is all just theory right now.
His rank when it became available too him was 1501, but I've seen lower ranks being able too select these so I don't think that's a factor, I'll have him check his sorites once he comes online, he's still sleeping at this time of day.
This is really wierd, It should not have blocked your friend from doing Hard missions, because I have a friend who hosted it with 1398, with rank Major, but I think it could be the amount of sorties you and my friend did.
I'm not sure exactly what unloxks it but I don't think its time played. You said it may be 28 hours but I had 30+ and still hadn't unlocked the HARD missions. I think it may be rank or Matching Rate. I recently ranked up to First Lieutenant and and also broke 1500 Rate so it may be that. I have also seen low Rates with hard missions hosted but it may unlock once you've passed a set rate and stay unlocked even if you loose that rate later. Either way I hope the information helps. If no one can find it I may just start over from scrach and find out that way. Also just in case it's number of sorties I did 91 when I noticed they unlocked.
So for info to help find out for sure -
Rank - First Liuetenant, Sorties - 91 (72 online), Matching Rate - 1502, Time Played - 35:00,
Also please dont make fun of the people that passout while playing and have alot of time and crap rank lol.
The fact that you claim to have broken 1500 MR means that it's unrelated, because everyone starts at 1500 MR. You decreased in MR when you started out and then increased again. So that's definitely unrelated.
I could make another account and find out but that's kind of a hassle, unless someone here has one, still don't know how its unlocked, but my 3 friends that I managed too get into playing Ace Combat Infinity had too unlock hard missions too play them.
Once you rank below first lieutenant #50 you can no longer choose between normal and hard. Only one difficulty becomes available.I was hosting a lobby for about 10 rounds could select hard when in it. After I had closed the lobby and went back to host another I could no longer select hard missions.
Playing more into the game I discovered that if your match ranking dips below 1450 hard becomes unavailable until you build it back above 1500.
