Just because they're grinders doesn't mean they don't appreciate good story content.

What Cryptic has done is add a further incentive to play Foundry missions. Undoubtedly a bunch of grinders will be awed by the fantastic stories and forget all about dilithium.

Sure there will be some like that. But how many will F through anything without the red text and 1 star any mission they can't blow through in 5 minutes?

It doesn't make much of a difference for those players. If they're not willing to play for the story, they'll stay away from the good missions just as they did during the Clickie exploit. This makes things better for them and no worse for us.

Muuuuch better.

How about taking long stories and breaking them up into bite sized 30 minute chunks. That way grinders get the rewards as well as good story?

I'm just skeptical. I guess we'll find out after the patch.
