I just got into the game and checked my US Battleships progression.  And it says,

I have 5/5 tasks done to complete the directive #4, but I didn't get the award.  The screen still shows the directive as being active/uncompleted.  What?

@Hapa_Fodder  Any idea on this?

PS:  Not sure how to screenshot this.

It's a technical issue with how the missions work. If you completed 5 of 6 yesterday before the incorrect requirements (6 tasks) was corrected, you need to complete another mission for the mission to actually recognize you completed the directive.

If construction workers built houses the way programmers program, the first woodpecker that came along would destroy civilization.

I don't mind doing 6 to get the 'prize', but it is strange to see 5/5 instead of 5/6.  I was a programmer for over 10 years, and even to me it seems like a pretty easy fix.

Whatever.....

Go take a square and level to all your doorways, walls, stairs and windows.  You won't find a square and level line in your house.  Everything is crooked and imperfect. You are likely to find your door and window frames to be wider on the top than on the bottom or vice versa.

Your house isn't broken, they are all built that way. Even brand new ones.

A house could be built better, but the time, tools and expertise needed would be cost prohibitive.
So, we have "good enough" houses.
Apparently the same rush-to-finish incentives are in programming?

Quiet often.  Not just WG, developers in general are often up against crazy deadlines.  Time is money and all that.

Code is sloppy and not the best it could be in many products.  It's just that unless it actually breaks, the consumer never knows because they can't actually see it.

Not just house building and programming, but all industries.  Sleep tight as you consider health care, airlines, etc...

Agreed.

I started in the construction industry building custom homes. We did everything except the mechanical and the drywall taping. We took the extra time, because it made it easier for the next step.

I moved to the city, and took a job on a framing crew. Boy were they fast! I was sent to frame around the ductwork. Usually, I just built two "ladders", and joined them at the bottom, precutting all my pieces, and keeping things as tight as possible.

Welp, so much for that idea, I had to start over, making the bulkheads larger, because nothing was anywhere near as straight and level as I was used to.
