Today I opened 3 or 4 faction "Steal research file" missions and I was really confused. There is something wrong with that kind of missions. I'll explain myself with some numbers. Let's start with...
        
     Time bonus: This mission is time critical, and we will issue a 20% bonus if the mission is completed in 761h 57m 22s    
          
     Since we are on the clock, we will be very disappointed if you don't complete this mission in 356h 30m 56s

time bonus < max time before you loose standing ?????

anyway the file to download is a Robber Baron Anti-Virus v 3.2 of 960.00 Gb, the servers maximum bandwidth is 352 kbs.
It means that it will take 756h 40m 32s to download it at full speed, so I will EVER loose standing. But the oddest thing is the running process:

Network disconnect command [localhost], 356h 24m 35s

what the hell does it means? there is NO WAY to delete that file, because the server will go down before I finish the download in any case!!!!

Question: how am I supposed to accomplish this mission type??? is it still work in progress???  21

I don't think that Emi has added in penalty's for failing faction missions yet, but still... Impossiable mission.

Nothing bad will happen, the mission will delete itself while your trying to complete it.

I have a number of them marked just so they don't keep showing up in the faction boards.

Not really, they are all doable. It's just a small percentage of the SRF's that can't be done if to much time has passed.

havent you noticed that:
Network disconnect command [localhost], 356h 24m 35s
Since we are on the clock, we will be very disappointed if you don't complete this mission in 356h 30m 56s
 Time bonus: This mission is time critical, and we will issue a 20% bonus if the mission is completed in 761h 57m 22s   
It means that it will take 756h 40m 32s t

the reason its impossible is because you accepted it too late. when it was posted it was
time bonus > max time

Lol would it be possible to quickly load a very very powerful injector or hijack up to an impossible server. Then you could bypass the BW issue
