Challenge Beacons do change every 1-2 years, for example a Challenge of Luck can become a Challenge of Might in 2 years, that's normal. What isn't normal, is a character being able to win a Challenge of Luck more than once. For example, if a character wins a Challenge of Luck in Ravenshore, and 2 years later a Challenge of Luck appears in Shadowspire, that same character should not be able to win it, since they've already won a Challenge of Luck before. At least, this is the way it functioned in base Might and Magic 8.

Traveling through station does not imply time-jumps. Other point, i told it somewhere before, i'm afraid to touch sci-fi elements, especially this station, - it can not be just room with three exits, it require some lore-based details, which do not exist in fact (at least i don't know enough of sci-fi side of MM), and i would not invent it myself, some things look a lot more interesting, when they stays unrevealed.
Yeah, i came up with the idea of Web Station Beta 5 as a tangible reward, because each continent (Enroth, Antagarich, Jadame) has several overland areas that are not reachable via Town Portal. Jadame has Garrote Gorge, Murmurwoods, and Ironsand Desert. Antagarich has Avlee, Tatalia, Barrow Downs and Evenmorn Island. I forget which areas are not reachable via Town Portal in Enroth (been far too long since i played M&M 6), but i know there are several as well. In the individual games, this wasn't too much of a problem because you could use Lloyd's Beacon to mark these locations. However, with all three continents being present in this merge, you can't have just one spellcaster mark a Beacon to all the areas, it'd take multiple spellcasters to keep them all marked (which would be a pain to maintain). So i thought Web Station Beta 5 would be a convenient and lore-friendly way to teleport around, forgetting about the time travel aspect. Plus it would help counter the Dark path getting access to "unlimited" Blaster Rifles (since it restores a Heavenly Forge) with my other suggestion.
Was the bug affecting the Might and Magic 7 Dark Path end fixed? After retrieving the Oscillation Overthruster, i would click on the door to talk to Kastore, and it would immediately start the end cinematic for the Dark Path (i wouldn't even get the chance to click on "Final Task", which you're supposed to...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOqoOf3euLU
). Then after the cinematic would end, Kastore wouldn't have a "Final Task" topic left, and the quest to bring him the Oscillation Overthruster would still be in my journal, and the Oscillation Overthruster was gone from my inventory. Afterwards, if i contacted Verdant for a Hint, she'd tell me to meet with Gavin Magnus and pass his test.
