The holo-day bash challenge trackers is not working.  Mine says play 1 game to receive 200 points. I've played 4 games in a row and received 0 points

 

Aslo it says "get a top 10 finish 4 times" for 200 points

 

how is this applicable to the holo-day event when there are only three teams?  Also i still have 0/4 when i won a game already.

Played 1 game of Holo-day bash and won it. Back in the lobby I check the quest tracker and I see only damage counter been counting. Play 1 game did not update, neither the top 10 counter even though my team won. Also my Daily challenged did not get any progress counted.

 

This was with PC

@huyness6 same for me. PS4, holo-day bash points are given only for damage, but don't count for number of games, or placement, or wins. Every update is ruining something every time. Sad

I‘m experiencing the same issue. Only the damage counter is going up, but I‘ve just won a game and finished as part of the top 10 several times. Not even “play one game” registered the fact that I have already played several games. (On PS Pro)

I’m on Xbox happen to me so I got the idea to just play a regular game and now all the winter express challenge are done.

Same with me. No progression on trackers what so ever.

Hello @huyness6 @tooGutsy @DaughterOfOdin9 @electric_bat @pinegoistic 

 

I noticed this issue too and did some searching around on Reddit.

 

I found this developer comment:

 

----

Unfortunately this turned out to be a little bit harder than we anticipated. Definitely want to look into this for future modes. The TLDR is that under the hood the systems for badges and for challenges are the same system, and we do NOT want Winter Express to count for badges. We would want it to count for dailies, but we couldn't make that happen without doing some re-engineering under the hood to separate them into two systems. We discovered this too late to get it fixed for Winter Express Frown

---

I replied to it somewhere else but basically the systems that do challenges and badges are... the same system. We didn't have time to disentangle them, and we definitely don't want you to get badges in WE.

---

 

For now, we have to deal with the current system, but they are fortunately looking into fixing this for other limited-time game modes.

Not tracking games played or top 10 finishes on Holo-Day Bash event challenges.

So far I have played 2 games and won both, however it is not showing any games played on my "Play 1 game" challenge and no top 10 finishes on my "Get a Top 10 finish 4 times". I've attached an image showing the bug.

@Uncle_Cunkle yeah, it's not a bug, it's feature Frown
It's like you don't actually have to play winter express to get holo-days points. https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Holo-day-Bash-Challenges-tracking-incorrectly-and-illogically/...

I just found out the "Play one game" and "finish top 10" challenges are for the regular battle royale mode. oof
